Stormy got her groove back! Thank GOD! Cowboy Courage was horrible and I was afraid the next two books would be disastrous but no... She did a good job with this one. There was a mention of Neason and Brody but it saddened me that Neason is never at the farm anymore. He also now wears coke bottle glasses so he can see.

What I like: There is a baby! Ruben wooing Elijah was cute. Ma going gaga over baby Alani.
Seamus' story is up next and my favorite Sheriff Riley looks like the leading man. Yayyyy

Uf! Este ha sido un dramón de los buenos! Desde lo cabezadura de los personajes principales, hasta lo que se les viene detrás, ha sido un no parar de sustos y ganas de patear a alguien.
Ruben y Elijah son preciosos como pareja, y más teniendo a la hermosura de Alani con ellos. Sin embargo, les ha tocado pasar por mucho en sus vidas y eso afecta directamente al momento de fortalecer y aceptar lo que sienten el uno por el otro. Cuando llega el momento del drama total creo que su amor termina de afi

I was relieved to see that with this fifth story in the series, we are back to firmer, more emotionally rewarding ground. There were none of the aggravating aspects to any of the characters that I found in volume four, and even though some of what happened was a little unlikely, it was nothing that made me sit up and go "No way". Ruben and Elijah's story was very sweet, has a little bit of angst and a somewhat evil villain; just right for an entertaining, fun read.

Ruben has had a very hard time.

Oh family drama at its greatest! I absolutely love the Blaecleah family. Five sons all gay all meeting and falling in love. Awww…what could be better??

This is book 5 and is about the Blaecleah’s adopted son Ruben, Ruben is introduced in book 3.

Book 5 didn’t disappoint. My second favorite book in the series I would say (favorite being book 2 Cowboy Keeper). There’re some surprises I didn’t see coming and the story is full of emotion which is great. Rube

This was such a great story! I was surprised and pleased that the author wrote a story about an adopted Blaecleah vs a full blood son.

Ruben has had his share of trauma, hurt and pain since leaving home to see the world. But the one joyful thing he got was his daughter, Alani. No, I'm not going to tell you how that came about. Read the book! Ruben has never stopped loving attorney, Elijah James, though and he's come home to make his intentions known. Elijah has been firmly back in the closet sinc

This was a sweet story of love and family. I love Ruben in book 3 of this series he was the wide eyed brother of Mathews who would take on the world. Here he is a bit older and life had happened so he is bringing his daughter home. The relationship between Ruben and Eli was really sweet and intense, made so by Ruben's need to be out and proud and Eli's need to be quiet and in the closet. We also get to see more of Ruben's mother in this one and boy did I pump the air like a lunatic when she got ...more

Very exciting story, but MAN what's happened to the members of this family.

A few editing mistakes including getting Matty's name wrong. However, the big question and as far as I'm concerned plot hole is: (view spoiler)

I am looking forward to Seamus's book and to see if he ends

Very sugary. It was so strange in a way a good mother Blaecleah, and then there is Ruben's mother who is evil. I found it hard to read this book because it was so black and white.

"I know that I'm becoming repetitive, but I love this family! Stormy wrote a beautiful story of Ruben and Elijah. It reunions, tension, lust, love. A bit of everything. And the best: a little baby that was a great addition in the family. At first I was a little angry with Elijah in his reluctance to take on Ruben, but their motives were strong and his love for Ruben even stronger. Ma And as always stealing the show. She is fantastic!
I can barely see the time of the author write the story of Seam

Мне показалось, что Элия вел себя больше как девочка, чем как взрослый мужчина-адвокат, поэтому, в конце, когда он стал хватать пистолет и показывать, какой он, оказывается, крутой мужик в это не верилось. Тема ребенка была загнанна на второй план и если уж автор хочет вставить ребенка в отношения двух мужчин, то это должно быть очень хорошо продумано и вписано. Опять же Элия как отец ребенка не видится здесь. Только на 3.

typical stormy glenn romance. nothing fantastic, nothing so bad it can't be finished. what is typical stormy glenn? imagine a shorter harlequin romance but with no t&a (see, i was going to write no surprise pregnancies, but... yeah.).

laziness dictates i will use this as my template for all books by the following authors unless a book is remarkably good/bad :
stormy glenn
lynn hagen
scarlet hyacinth
joyee flynn
carol lynne
gabrielle evans

Great addition, really enjoyed it. Elijah, lost his lover and was afraid to lose another. Ruben, wanted Elijah, but he had some growing up to do. Years's finally time for them the Cowboy Up and go after what they want.
