About this ebook

When disgraced bull rider Ty Sloane agreed to take a job as foreman at Falcon Ridge Ranch, he didn’t count on having to share his job or his cabin with twenty-one-year-old rising star barrel racer Maybelle Johnson. She tests his patience by day and drives him to distraction by night, but she’s off limits—too young and innocent for the likes of an ex-con like him.

 

As far as Maybelle is concerned, Ty Sloane can go jump in a lake. The cocky bull rider is a thorn in her side, both at the ranch and on the road. But he makes her feel things no man has ever made her feel, and as she learns about his past, she can’t help but develop a soft spot for him.

 

When trouble finds Maybelle on the rodeo circuit, Ty puts it all on the line for the sweet young woman who’s captured his heart, even though it may cost him his freedom.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Ride Hard is book 1 in the new Roughstock Riders series by Tessa Layne and a great way to start this new series! Even catching up with old friends. Ty Sloan, disgraced bull rider and Maybelle Johnson, a young up an coming barrel racer are a thrown together when he takes a job as foreman on the Falcon Ridge Ranch after being released from prison as part of his parole only to find Maybelle had been given the same job by her Uncle. What happens next with this May/December couple is about pushing buttons, learning to trust, work as a team, keeping her safe, understanding feelings, staying on the right side of the law and maybe finding their HEA...

An older man, younger woman romance. Ty is about 15 years older than Maybelle. There was great chemistry, and an instant attraction between the two. I honestly thought the book would be more focused on them competing for the foreman's job before the romance heated up. Rodeoing was mentioned, and the foreman concept kind of took a backseat by them agreeing to share the job. I felt badly for Ty because he was so down on himself. I wish I knew what his associates degree was in. It was mentioned a couple of times, but I don't remember the subject matter being mentioned. I guess that is one of those weird bits of information from a book that I would have appreciated. I read the book in one sitting. It immediately grabbed my attention and I became engaged in the story. It took a turn i wasn't expecting. I really wish there had been an epilogue, but I'm really glad Ty and Maybelle got their HEA. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy received from Booksprout.

Ride Hard by Tessa Layne is book number one in the Roughstock Riders series. This is Ty Sloane and Maybelle Johnson’s story. Ty and Maybelle’s characters are one of a kind. You wouldn’t think these two would fit together but they are ideal for each other. Ty and Maybelle’s journey had some bumps and twists but end up with their HEA. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
