Friends to lovers stories have become a staple in the romance genre. With Redeeming The Texas Rancher, Ms. Sands puts her spin on a commonplace theme and creates gold. Cole and Day are sweet together, clueless to each others feelings but magically light up the story with that instantaneous chemistry they exude. For the good of the heart and the happiness of the soul Charlene Sands creates something to be proud of with this lovelorn duo. Not to be missed.

They talk about horse sense a lot when referring to those who have been brought up on a ranch. Well, at least been around horses. Those with horse sense usually are smart and practical. One to be counted on to make good decisions.
That is exactly what Dakota Jennings had thought most of her life about Colby Ryan her good friend and boss. What he had never figured out in all these years is that she has been in love with him since she was ten. Being he was fifteen at the time she was always just

When two people have cared about, maybe even loved each other for years… each unknown about by the other, well sooner or later something’s got to give. And Dakota had decided that it was long past time to get over Cody. He certainly didn’t see her the way she needed him to, and if that hadn’t changed in years why was she holding out hope. So she set out to find another man who could lure her heart away from one stubborn cowboy. That didn’t exactly work as intended.

Redeeming the Texas Rancher is a sweet contemporary western love story with a nice hint of sexy thrown in for good measure. Book three in Sharlene Sands’ Forever Texan series this story works well either as part of the series or as a stand-alone.
Dakota, Day to her friends, has known Cole all her life and loved him since she was ten years old. They’ve been best friends forever but Day wants more while Cole is reluctant to potentially ruin that friendship despite the fact that he’s suddenly discov

I like Charlene's books. I like to read about cowboys. She does a good job of joining her story lines and characters. Cole has a ranch and Day is his top wrangled. She loves the horses, especially when she just finished go along a new filly! Day loved Cole since she was 10. He wants to be her best friend. She keeps working on it. She breaks him down and then here comes a big Major Spoiler! She is crushed and he can't tell her about it. She ignored him, then worked around him. Cole and his crew a ...more

I have enjoyed this Texas Series by Charlene Sands with each book having a different trope. Redeeming the Texas Rancher has childhood friends nor boss and employee theme going on between Colby and Dakota. To top it off their mothers have been best friends forever and day.

I especially liked Dakota with her tomboy and girly sides creating her into the perfect woman for stubborn Colby. Of course, Colby had many good qualities but these were overshadowed by his dense as a turnip mentality. However,

This is the first book in the Forever Texans series that I read and now I need to go back and read one and two because it was really good. Just so you know it is a stand alone book but I do want to read the others because i would love the back stories and to know all about the neighbors and all.

So let me share a little bit about this this tale and why I could not stop reading once I started. Charlene Sands is one of of "those" authors who has the ability to write a book that draws you in from th

This is a sweet romance between a couple that have been childhood friends most of their life. Dakota has loved Colby since she was ten. Cole has realised he has feelings for Day but something in his past holding him back, this is something Dakota has no idea about.
The relationship between Cole and Day was very close, and were a great team on the Ranch. All their friends can see they belong together. When Day’s next door neighbour Brett starts flirting with

Dekota works for Colby on his ranch , she absolutely loves her job, the horse's and her boss. Her second job is at a lingerie shop so she gets an employee discount on all the sexy frilly things which is a good thing for the sexy turn the story line takes. Colby and Dekota can heat up the pages!
I liked catching up with the characters from the earlier books, yet this can be read as a stand alone.
The story moves right along and a secret comes out that makes the reading so intense I found myself

Redeeming the Texas Rancher is the third book in the Forever Texan series. Two hearts, one soul connecting. But Colby isn't willing to risk hurting Dakota. Dakota has been pining after Colby for years while Colby has remained a gentleman to her. But once Colby sees more than the tomboy, he realizes there could be something between them. Do they have a chance? I really enjoyed this story. A definite must-read!

Second chances and friends who develop into more, has become a regular storyline in this and many other genres; so when Colby and Dakota realise their long time friendship is about to evolve 9yes, it takes them a while, LOL) the instant chemistry is off the charts!

Charlene Sands continues to create special stories that always leave the reader with a happy smile and wanting so much more.

Book 3 in the Forever Texan series, I really enjoyed this story. Dakota and Colby were fabulous characters and with the engaging storyline made for a great read. I look forward to reading more by this author and if you love a good cowboy story I suggest you add this to your list.

I received this book as an ARC and this is my honest opinion of what I've read. Ms Sands writes a wonderful Friends to Lovers story with our h and H Dakota (Day) and Cole. Both unknowing of the others true feelings. It was wonderful reading this story and it can be read as a stand alone.

This is the third book in Charlene Sands' "Forever Texan" series. It is, however, the first of her books I have read. Both Cole and Dakota are very likable. It is a very sweet story. Based on the book's description, I expected a deeper internal struggle. Because of this I thought about a 4 out of 5 rating for the book. After reading the last chapter, I had changed my mind.

This is a sweet and heartwarming romance. Dakota has crushed on Colby since she was young. He is a few years older and has always looked out for her and she also works for him on his ranch. Dakota finally decides to let go of her crush and start dating other men to get Colby off of her mind, which finally gets him to realize what he could be giving up if he doesn't deal with a secret from his past. I really cared for this couple and waited with baited breathe for Colby to realize that he was wor ...more
