Yesssss! The Martin men have returned and I couldn't be happier. (And by "returned", I mean we met them in... book 2 [yes? I think.] of the WtME series and COWBOYS WHO DO THINGS LIKE SAVE LIVES AND STUFF! WHOO-HOO! AND WHO ARE A LITTLE BROKEN. *SAD*) (You know, it's not my fault I can't exactly remember what book. Christi Snow has written quite a few books since they last appeared. Blame her.)

Soooooo...Scott. What can we saw about Scott? He's sweet and sexy and he saves people. And he's a still

I was given a copy of Right By Your Side from NetGalley for an honest review and this is my review.
Let me say first that this book had it all a bit of everything sexually including some talk of gay and bisexual relationships so if you cannot handle that and do not want to read those kind of books please do not pick this book up. With that being said if you can handle adult content this was a very well written book.
I enjoyed both Scott and Skye as characters and thought they were well suited for

Another great story by Chisti Snow!

Skye Taylor has just finished a year long country music tour when her bus crashes seriously injuring her best friend / bodyguard.
Luckily, off duty parametric Scott Martin comes upon the wreck and cares for them.

Somewhere between having to deal with her music label regarding contracts, paparazzi, crazy fans and avoiding a killer they form a friendship which quickly becomes more.

I will definitely have to keep reading this series to see w

Ms. Snow gives you what you come to expect a very emotional outstanding love story. I do not think there are many topics she doesn't hit on in this story with a wonderful outstanding plot spins of action, mystery, love, with many twists and turns I doubt you will be able to guess who the killer is. She gives you a compelling story of best friends, family as they go through so very heart breaking times. She lays the passion on between Scott and Sky about half way through they start burning up the ...more

Ever since Christi Snow’s When the Mission Ends series, I have been patiently waiting for the Martin men series to come out and I have to say – it was worth the wait!! Scott Martin is an EMT and one of the older brothers of the clan. He feels guilty for leaving his father and youngest brother’s care to his oldest brother, Andrew. But, his busy job and schedule have kept him away from the family ranch. While traveling to the ranch to check on his ailing father, Scott comes across a horrific bus c ...more

4 1/2 teary, happy stars ;)

I know I’ve said this before, but it bares repeating. I was hooked on Christi Snow’s writing and characters from the prologue of her very first book, Operation: End Game. One of the main reasons I’m bringing this up is because the Martin Ranch series is an indirect spin-off of the When the Mission Ends series. The Martin brothers were introduced in the second book, Operation: Endeavor. Don’t let that bother you if you haven’t read any of the books in the When the Mis

Having read Snow’s Snowcroft Men series, I was intrigued by the idea of reading an M/F romance as I really like her M/M romances. As I was nearing the end of the book, I kept thinking that it was way more predictable than I expected it to be based on my experience with the author’s other series. Snow still delivers some seriously hot chemistry between Skye and Scott. But the romantic suspense angle wasn’t living up to my expectations. And then…. Oh, my goodness! I owe Snow a major apology for un ...more

ARC received from author for honest review for CJ’s Book Corner

Yet another incredible read from Christi Snow! How can you go wrong writing about a gorgeous cowboy with a heart of gold? Scott Martin is written just like that. Although he is running on empty trying to keep up with everything going on in his life, when he happens upon a bus crash he doesn’t hesitate to help. When one of the victims is the current hottest young female country singer he knows he needs to help in anyway he can. She ta

Right By Your Side is AMAZING. I couldn't put this book down! This story starts off with a tour bus crash, and that is how Skye meet Scott. He was the first one to the scene, and helped both Skye and her Best friend/bodyguard that night! While Skye's best friend was in the hospital, Scott was able to get her to leave KC's side to go sleep and take care of herself, and along the way they feel in love, this story has a lil of everything, love, sex, danger, Skye's celebrity status, family etc.

Loved the mystery! Loved the romance! Loved all the characters!
The first book in the Martin Ranch series and my first book by this author. I am so glad I gave this a chance despite the cover page, which really doesn't do this book any justice.
This was a really sound romantic suspense novel with some great and unique characters. Romantic suspense books are quite often fairly predictable when it comes to the mystery element of the story, but I had no clue who the villain was until the big reveal t

The author has provided a sweetness to this first in a new Romantic Suspense series...the story of Skye and Scott is not what one would expect, so the reader is encouraged to keep reading to know more, to try to figure out the mystery of Skye, and there are a couple. I found this first book I've read by this author one that I would recommend to anyone who really enjoys a good mystery, with suspense and romance thrown in.

ARC provided by the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first book by Christi Snow. One of the joys of reading and reviewing ARC's is the discovery of new authors. Unfortunately, Christi Snow is just not my style. If you like your romance with a contemporary sexual edge, this book is for you. I do have to give credit for an excellent mystery plot and well written characters. That said, the angst level was topping the charts and that is something I just can't stand
Right by your side is my first introduction into the Marin family and I have to say I'm intrigued.

As an avid reader her entire life, Christi Snow always dreamed of writing books that brought to others the kind of joy she felt when she read. But...she never did anything about it besides jot down a few ideas and sparse scenes.

When her husband retired from the Air Force, Christi decided it was time to chase her dream and she started writing. She hasn’t stopped since. With twenty-two published boo
