Okay first off I have to say that I love me some cowboys and holy mother lover I would love to be broken in by Colt McCord because LORDY LORDY he is all that and a bag of horse manure!

Graysen is not excited about going to a ranch for a family vacation for two weeks. She rather be doing something else but she never goes back on her word and this is what her family wants so she is willing to give it to them. What Gray never imagined was when she got to the ranch she would meet Colt McCord and boy

Graysen is on the vacation of a lifetime. Family arrive in Wyoming all the way from Iowa. And when I say family, I do mean a full deck. Younger sis, older PROTECTIVE bro, and the rents isn’t exactly what Graysen had in mind as the perfect excursion. On her way toward getting a grad degree in architecture, this snappy lass is trying to figure out how she'll last the evening, forget the whole two weeks. Until she gets the breath knocked from her lungs at the sight of a moonlight rider and horse.

Heartbreak Ranch by Anastasia Ryan


Heartbreak Ranch is a poignant story about intense young lovers and their conflict ridden emotional journey to happiness.

Graysen is unusually innocent for a twenty year old woman. When she inadvertently spies on Colt the ranch owner's adoptive son schooling a young stallion she is shocked by her appreciation of his masculine beauty and forced onto an emotional roller-coaster.

Colt is the archetypical hot cowboy with a melting soft centre. Lust at first sight Colt is tem
Only 7 chapters and no Epilogue? I'd say I'm hoping for the next book if it wasn't for the fact the last chapter ends with, "The End"?
It was an okay story but I was expecting more. Too short to get a real sense of the story or the characters.

Colt I loved him, "don't drop the reins next time, Iowa," he said as he handed Grayson her hat, the corner of his mouth edging upward into a wry smile." I just loved how he talked, "twenty? Lordy, why, you're just a baby." He has a possessiveness about him, "I am going to make you mine before you leave. I am going to make love to you. Not just because I want you, but because if I don't both of us will regret it for the rest of our lives." When I picture a cowboy or rancher I picture Colt, "darli ...more
A very interesting story that captures your interest from the beginning.
Colt was the ultimate, sensitive cowboy.
The writing was smooth, plus the descriptions really made you feel that you
where there at the ranch.
I hope she continues the story.

Graysen Beaufort wasnt happy about the two weeks family vacation at a ranch.

Colt McCord is a hot cowboy who is a head horse trainer at White Pine Ranch.

The attraction, the passion between them is powerful, intense. They cant stop thinking about each other.

Sometimes the best things happen when we least expect them. And that was what happen to Graysen. Even though she didnt know that at the beginning, but at the end Colt was the best thing that happened to her.

A book that captured me attention fro

Heartbreak Ranch was a breath of fresh air for me. Graysen and Colt have this firework kind of relationship. It explodes before either of them are ready to deal with the outcome. They're caught in the moment and boy are they in that moment. Hot scenes with even hotter endings. The magical passion and heartfelt emotion had me cheering them on. Happy ending or not, I wanted these two together page after page. This is the first book I've read by Anastasia Ryan. Her writing is beautiful and strong. ...more

I received Heartbreak Ranch in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours. Greysen’s vacation plans didn't include a long road trip, horses or hot guys. After all she wanted to head to Europe with her friends but thanks to her parents family trip she’s going to spend two weeks in Wyoming. If only they have cell service she may just make it the whole two weeks. After a long car ride with her older brother and teenage sister Greysen is happy to have a real bed to ...more
*Contains some scenes that may be inappropriate for younger readers.*


I'll admit I do not usually read contemporary books. Especially contemporary romance books. But there was just something about this book -aside from the lovely cover- that captured my interest.

I cannot describe it, but there is something that I find fascinating about Cowboys, and Westerns in general, for that matter. So a ranch sounded like a pretty fun setting. The story follows Graysen a

This book was not what I was expecting.
It was only 8 chapters, and I hate and love that. Hate because the ending really did nothing for me. It has to many possibilities, and I like an absolute HEA. I loved the shortness of it because I'm getting so tired of the angst my fav genres use. The chase and game playing is getting old. All I want is a good love story, and you have to be a mighty fine writer to do it right and make it perfect.

I did love Grey and Colt together. I loved reading what l
Graysen Beaufort is stuck vacationing at a ranch with her family for two weeks. She's convinced she's going to be bored out of her mind for the duration. But, of course, there she meets Colt McCord--the handsome horse trainer at the ranch. Will she take a chance on Colt with only two weeks with him?

First things first...who doesn't love cowboys? Not sure what it is about them but they're hella sexy... Anyways...the instant attraction between Graysen and Colt is intense. It's the type of attractio

This book was a quick read and didn't really surprise me at any point. Heartbreak Ranch was comfortably predictable with many cute moments, which makes for an easy escape.
Tim Crooks
Excellent book, it has romance, a good conflict and obviously a young, hot college age girl falling for a rough, tough cowboy. A story that captures you and leaves wanting more.
