Liked the May/December romance. I also liked catching up with the other characters in this series. I liked the chemistry between the heroes. Very good read.
The people over in the M/M Romance Group requested that those of us who give 1 star to a book explain why. I know that there are many people who read Ms. Lynne's work and are happy, unfortunately I am not. If you enjoy reading Ms. Lynne's work, please continue to do so. If you have never read one of Ms. Lynne's works please try her out. May I suggest Cattle Valley: Sweet Topping as this is the best book I have found in any of her series.

I'd like to explain my 1 star. The blurbs to a book is what

This was the story of Ezra and Wyn. It was nice to read a story about two older men finding true love after mistakes in their pasts. Wyn is still a little skittish after his abusive relationship with the old pastor. He is forced to return to a small town in Oklahoma to settle his father's estate but runs into some gay bashers. Wyn calls Nate to see if he'll come and help him but Nate suggests that he call Ezra. Both Ezra and Wyn have some chemistry so Ezra flies down to help. Ezra is a giant of ...more

This is book four to this amazing series however they should be read in order so that you get to know the wonderful characters. Characters that you will come to love. Each one has their own tragic story or painful story to tell. They are amazing and so full of love for each other that you can't help but cheer them on.
Wyn and Ezra has been fighting the attraction between them. Ezra had gotten his feelings hurt the first time he walked into Wyn's store, that he cal
I kind of think its funny that I am a straight female and yet I am reading gay romance I have never read gay romance before the reason I read this book originally is because I have a friend who is gay that is simply in love with this book series because he has told me all about this series (a lot) I figured I would give it a go well all I can is is my friend has fabulous taste (not that he would ever let me forget that for even a second)
I may be a straight female but I simply love the guys in th
Shallow, trite and predictable with cringe worthy dialog.

I did not want to start reading the latest installment in Carol Lynne's Cattle Valley series: Rough Ride. I have a job, I try to write every day, and there is the small matter of family (do they really need to eat again today?) I knew what would happen, and I was right. Once I fired up my ebook reader and hit the first page of Rough Ride, I was lost. Wyn phoned Nate and there I was, right back in Cattle Valley, a town that I love, and love to immerse myself in.

Rough Ride is the fourth installme
Wyn, Palmer Wynfield is a business man in Cattle Valley, he owns the clothing shop in town, but he is suddenly called away to take care of his dying father and sell his family's ranch in Oklahoma. Farmer Ezra James has been checking out Wyn since he first saw him, but has been gentle in his attentions because Wyn was clearly scared of his big size when they finally met. Now Wyn has asked Ezra to come to Oklahoma and help him settle his family affairs so he can go back to Cattle Valley and peace. ...more
The first time I say Ezra and Winn interact I thought are these two every going to get their act together. It was obvious from the way Ms. Lynne had written them that they were crazy about each other but attitude and preconceived notions were keeping them apart.

The little twist at the beginning of this one where Nate suggested Ezra's help was the perfect push both needed. Talk about a case of opposites attracting. These two are about as opposite as opposite can be but yet Ms. Lynn's creative sk
I was waiting for this book since the first book I read. Palmer Wynfield and Ezra James have a long-standing feud stemming from a verbal altercation a few years back and even though they have been getting along better these days. Ezra even kissed Wyn at the New Year's Eve party at the church!

When Wyn's dad dies and he has to go back to Oklahoma to get the ranch ready to sell, he encounters some problems with the townsfolk who don't like his lifestyle and beat him up. He calls Ezra to ask him to

We met Wyn in the first book of this series as the man who had been stalked by his ex-lover. It’s been months now since all that, and Wyn has been called home when his father passes away and he’s faced with selling the family ranch. When the hometown locals gang up on Wyn because of his lifestyle, Wyn reaches out to Ezra to come and help him. For too long the two had avoided their attraction and growing love for one another, but Wyn’s call is just what Ezra needs push them into the relationship ...more
не очень люблю романы с пожилыми ГГ. Седина и т.д. и, видимо, следующий роман в этой серии тоже с пожилыми...Хотя Эзра очень понравился, такой медведь))
Love Ezra and Wyn, what a beautiful story
Wendy Ann
I love this series, but I wasn’t quite as enamored with this couple as the others I’ve read so far. I think some of the self-doubt made Wyn seem younger than what I perceived him to be and I just wasn’t feeling a strong connection with the main characters. I did enjoy getting a glimpse into the life of some of the returning characters and hope there is a story in the future for at least one of the new guys. I love the thought of a real Cattle Valley and so I read with the hope that maybe dreams ...more

This is my least favorite so far in the series. I didn't buy the connection between Ezra and Wynn. And there was too much sex. Seems like they just came together to have sex. I didn't like the plot either. I don't understand why the author felt it necessary to have Wynn scarred by the barbed wire fence. Hopefully the next in the series will be better than this one. I also wondered if we'll get a f/f story since women/lesbians do live in Cattle Valley, but you'd never guess it with the supporting ...more

I've liked Wyn for a couple of books now, and I was happy to see he got his man and story! This was a good book, the first half had a bit of drama, then not as much happened in the second half though. I can see set ups for more stories, and there were appearances by other characters, which was nice. Ezra and Wyn make a good couple, and the sex was hot.
Wyn & Ezra, HOT.

What I did NOT like about this book: In book 3 it took you through Kyle and Gill's wedding. In book 4 with Wyn & Ezra you take a go through the middle of book 3 but with Wyn & Ezra. I think some of the stuff that is HEA for some of the characters should be more or a .5 book, than a next # book.

The rest of Book 4, I ADORED. Love the men, love Cattle Valley.

This was pretty good. I liked Ezra and Wyn well enough, but they didn't hold quite the same appeal as some of the other mmain characters. While all of the stories are enjoyable (this is book 4 in series), none have managed to produce the same sexual heat that was sizzling in book one. From what I can tell, the next book has enormous potential for doing just that!
pretty sweet, and hot as well.
This was the first book I've read by Carol Lynne. I liked the story and the characters and thought it was very sexy. I definitely feel like I missed some stuff going on by picking up in the middle of the series. I'm looking forward to going back and reading more from this series.
What I like most about these stories is not just witnessing the growth of each relationship, we get to see the actual town grow too. It's fascinating.

A reliable read as always from Carol Lynne.
I enjoyed watching Wyn get over some of his issues and Ezra finally giving into his feelings for Wyn.

Absolutely loved Wyn and Ezra...The interaction between them was perfect...I loved how Ezra protected Wyn from the bullies x

This is a story of opposites being attracted. In a town called Cattle Valley I expect cowboys and here's the first one.
I wish I could meet someone like Ezra, the way he went all potecting gave me goose bumps
Vfields is fighting to be Happy!
Sweet. Totally unrealistic. Just what I needed on a hot day traveling in the summer.

“If my parents hadn’t raised me to respect the elderly, I’d probably be telling you to get your head out of your ass and look at people for who they are and not who they love. I might even be tempted to tell you you’re not worth the cow shit on the bottom of Wyn’s shoes. But I won’t say that, you being elderly and all. Good day.” 1 likes
