A fitting end to this fab cowboy series
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Things come to a head in the final entry of the Blue Ice Ranch series and it’s a doozy with all kinds of unexpected events and secrets coming home to roost.
I really enjoyed this last visit to the guys and gals of the ranch, we find out just what’s been going on with the thefts, discover who’s behind the missing dinosaur bones and see Kyle Abbott fall head over heels for the youngest McCrary brother Shep.
Shep is in deep trouble when he lands on the doorstep of the isolated cabin where Kyle’s taking care of the herd before bringing them in to calve. He’s been beaten black and blue and isn’t saying anything but as the days move on, there’s a slow thawing between the two men that’s inflamed by their attraction.
What I liked the most about this one is how each came to rely on the other for support and encouragement, especially how Kyle stuck up for Shep with the rest of his mates – something that came with a risk given previous events between the two ranches.
The sex is chemistry filled and emotionally charged, there’s good conversation between the two men and no stupid misunderstandings. I also felt the way Vicki drew the mystery to a close worked well and didn’t feel like a plot point out of nowhere.
Overall this has been a really great cowboy series to get stuck into with a variety of story narratives.
