I must admit I love the stubborn, handsome cowboys in Ms. Ball's books and her strong heroines win me over immediately. Rylee has major obstacles in her path, most brought on by a brutal abusive father. Always seeking approval she never gets, Rylee walks the straight and narrow, hoping someday things will get better. When she gets a job as housekeeper for hunky Clint Maloney, it looks like Rylee's ship has come in. But not quite. Her own insecurities plus a visit or two from her father turn her ...more

We always need a sexy cowboy like Clint. Clint is hard working, stubborn and lovable. At firs I could not get over how immature Ryelee was. Always having to be rescued by Clint. As I continued to read the story, I learned why. Ryelees hurtful past all by the hand of someone who was to protect her. Ryelee is a great female lead, who strives to move beyond her past hurt. She falls for Clint but not all is well when her father returns. We learn everything is not always what it seems when it comes ...more

My Review will be available on my blog on the 12/20
The first two chapters had a feeling of animation to it and was difficult to read. But as I went along and read the interesting plot I looked past that and really enjoyed the story. Book 2 in the Dawson Ranch Series.
The characters Ryelee and Rheenie stood out the most with supporting characters Jimmy, Annie and Burke. I liked the originality of Ryelee's name, fit the character perfectly. Also liked the book cover it draws you in so that you want

I enjoyed the read but Rylee was bit annoying I liked her but all she did was cry and cry and cry. Clint was okay as a character very likable but the women need to be a bit tougher and smarter and enough with all the crying.

I liked the story and the romance and I finished the book quickly and the story was a sweet romance novel with series life issues confronted by the main couple. I would of liked for Clint to give us some more insight into his marriage. Was he completely in love with his wife

Very enjoyable! I wanted to jump into the story several times and shake Ryelee and Clint, but in the end it all worked out:)

Lied, Trials and. Lovr

Rylee. is a down on her luck girl that has procured a job as a housekeeper/caregiver for a rancher named Clint and his daughter Rhennie. Ryle is always getting into scrapes and Clint is always saving her. Eventually a romantic relationship develops between Clint and Rylee.
However, cattle rustling, lies galore, and pride threaten their happiness. This book highlights the importance of truth, the art of forgiveness, and that a community can play a huge part in a person's life

Again, another good read from the author. For me I found the story to be well rounded and I love the way there is just as much going on in the background as well as the love story.
The only thing I kind if cringed about was Burke picking her up a few times and putting her on his lap...Maybe I'm just being a bit "British" but I would feel really really uncomfortable if another womans husband sat me on his lap! The other thing that puzzled was the lack of hanging a stocking for Santa. When they ha

What's not to like?!

Rylee and Clint are very likable characters. The character development was excellent, just as I'd anticipated and all the wonderful supporting characters from book one did not disappoint either.

This book definitely touched on my emotions. There were times when I wanted to say, "Just tell 'em! And let them catch the culprit"... but then, like any good story - taking the easy/best route would take away from the story.

As a Christian and someone not wanting to avoid sex in a sto

All in All, an Enjoyable Book!

I enjoyed this second book in the series. The characters are all very thought out and you either liked or disliked them. I really liked Ryelee, the heroine and could understand from the start why she thought and acted the way she did. Clint, the hero was a little harder to get to know and to have any sympathy for, but in the end he became likeable. Loved little Rheenie, gave the book the lightness it needed. It was nice to meet up with

This is the second of the Dawson Ranch Series. Ryelee is a young woman who has been hired to take care of Clint's home and his 4 year old daughter. Rylee is a great character. She has had a horrible childhood and has a devastating secret but she is strong and resilient. Finding a way to recover her self esteem and live a normal life is her plan. She is a wonderful mother to Rheenie and a hard worker for Clint.
The story has numerous twist and turns, suspense and a sweet romance. The characters of

This is a quick and easy romance. I love Ryelee and how strong she really is (even though she doesn't think so). I was a bit disappointed with Clint's attitude. He wanted her to trust him but he didn't trust her. Rheenie seems so sweet and sensitive that you have to love her. I would love to see a sequel with Rheenie all grown up and looking for love.

Nice story

Great cast of characters, suspends, wrenching heart felt decisions that had to be made. Poor judgement, we all are guilty of making bad decisions . It's how we humans live and learn. Enjoyed it very much, enough to sit up till time.
