4.5 Stars

This is the 3rd book in the series but I had no trouble picking it right up. Great set of characters and the Malloy family is awesome!

This is Reed and Ally's story. Both of them seem to compliment each other. Great single parent romance. Love it when love sneaks up when you least expect it. This book had all the love of every kind bouncing around. Friends, brothers, lovers, grand parents...everything! A little bit of tension made the story move along and not become stagnant.

Great read

ARC REVIEW

Reed is book three of the Malloys of Montana series by R.C. Ryan. Reed is the youngest of the three brothers and even though he has the playboy image he takes one thing very seriously, his cattle. He is trying to raise a herd of free range organic cattle that has been a money pit, until now. This latest herd is doing surprisingly well and if he can get them to market he has a buyer who will pay very well for them. Ally Shaw and her son Kyle needed a do over. Kyle's father was a milita

I love a good Romantic Cowboy story every once in a while. So when I saw ‘Reed’ at Netgalley last year, I requested to read this one immediately. But life got in the way, and somehow I lost track of this book. But since I’m cleaning out my Netgalley list, it was time to read this book. Although ‘Reed’ is the third book in the Malloys of Montana series, it can be read as a standalone.

In ‘Reed’ we meet Ally Shaw and Reed Malloy. Ally is a young mom of a boy of four, and she just moved her whole li

Received in exchange for a honest review.

I think Reed is my favorite of all the brothers. he is so rugged on the outside but a teddy bear on the inside. the one with the most to prove and overcome yet the one with vision as well. He is a true cowboy in the sense that the land is his love as is his family and it isn’t until a little boy he calls little buddy and his mom comes into his world that he finds love and peace somewhere besides the land he works on.

Reed and Ally’s story is mired with dan

I read a lot. Ridiculous numbers of books in a week, a month, a year. So when one sticks in my brain and my heart, it’s usually a more than 5 star book to me. Reed is exactly that—a 5 plus star book. I’ve loved EVERY moment I’ve spent with the Malloy family and I’ve been dying to read Reed’s story, he’s the youngest Malloy and by far the most mysterious of the brood.

Reed is the Malloy who’s put his heart and soul into the land—he’s working his own herd, one that could put them on the map for org

4.5*s of family love and cowboy hotness

This is the third in the series, and I love the Malloy family more and more.

Reed is the youngest of the three brothers who were orphaned at a young age and brought up by their grandparents. He has spent his whole life concentrating on work to ease the pain, and finally his organic cattle project is paying off. Both his brothers are now married, but he shows no interest in a settled

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

A handsome cowboy, a single mom with a cute son and a villain on the loose sets the stage for an epic romance in the old west. Well, modern day Montana at any rate.

Reed is the youngest of the Malloy sons that his grandparents stepped in to raise after their parents were killed in a car accident. Learning to live the without his parents, Reed often retreated to the hills, always striving to find something that was irrevocabl

*This book was provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*
Reed is a pretty standard romance, but I do have to admit that I enjoyed it immensely. It was a great take on a single parent romance, and I did like the huge family that Ally ends up getting brought into. I thought they were such a great cast of characters, and if I had started this series with the first book I might be compelled to continue reading. As it is, I really enjoyed this book it had all the twists and turns I love

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Meh. Parts of this books felt really dated. The story was told more than shown and the author head-hopped from character to character in the same scene. It got confusing.
Sunny (Kindles & Wine Book Blog)
Another enjoyable story for the Malloy family, this time, Reed getting his happily ever after. I enjoyed the change in Reed as he found a woman and boy that could keep him interested in something other than the ranch. I was frustrated at times by Abby’s naïveté with family and life, but otherwise, I really enjoyed this story!

Note: I received a review copy of this title courtesy of the audiobook publisher, Hachette.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. Sweet love story for Ally and Reed, Ally is a single parent, and when she least expects it, she falls in love. Reed has grown up with his grandparents along with his brothers, after his parent died. You read about the the relationship with his brothers, grandparents and friends, he is a sweet guy..

I started out liking the story and the characters, but the more I read I decided I didn't really care for Reed. It seemed like every time they were together he was almost pressuring her into having sex with him. I think it came up in every single conversation they had. I liked the little boy; he was adorable.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. This was my first read by this author and I loved it. It has all the romance between a big city girl wanted a clean slate and a rough and tough cowboy with a little mystery as well. You can't but love Reed, a cowboy who is smitten with Ally's little boy. Great story!

I read this because my boyfriend bought it for me. His last name is "Reed". So we broke up, and THEN I read this book and I am not going to lie... this book made me miss that dude so much. The similarities between my ex and the character are actually quite remarkable haha. This book did not heal my broken heart, but I loved it!

I just love this author. I must admit the others in the series were a little slow for me, but then when I got to Reed's story I couldn't put it down. I love the hero, and he's protective yet sexy too.

Haven't read a Western romance in forever. Got a little emotional at the end there. And a dash of action; two thumbs up.

I really enjoyed the first half of this book, but I didn't enjoy the last half. I got annoyed with how Reed was constantly pushing for sex.

This is the first book that I have read from R.C. Ryan and also the first I have read in the Malloy series. Having never read any of R.C.'s books in the past I was not sure what her style of writing was going to be like and how it would work with me starting by reading book three.

In regards to writing style I found that R.C.'s was a mix of romance and suspense. She had the love story that I enjoy but also had the suspense that has you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next. I

REED is the third and final book in the Malloys of Montana Series by RC Ryan. It's a sweet story. Ryan doesn't use harsh words to describe things. Enjoyed this book and now I have to read the others before it. I'm not usually one to read a third before the rest, but I didn't see that it was a series before picking it up. However great book and fantastic job.
Catherine  Wright (Cat's Guilty Pleasure)
I loved this one I loved the other books as well, but this one is my favorite. I loved the whole mystery and intrigue and the romance between Ally and Reed. This one definitely kept me on my toes the whole time I was reading, not at any point was it slow. I can't wait for more cowboy romance.
