Angelina's book is one I have anxiously awaited. Ange was the elusive Ford- always home and gone before you practically had a chance to say hello. A true workaholic, Angie was so caught up in her job and be being a success on her own, independent of the wealth of her family, Angie had truly neglected her family. At least I felt so.

Logan Brody is home from war and feels a shell of the man he once was. He and Angie were truly the best of friends and never crossed that line. Now he is full of demo

Even though I thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in this series, I think this might be my favorite! While Angelina always came across as stand-offish in the other books, I found that I really like how her character developed in this one. She and Logan were perfect for one another, even if it did take them a long while to realize they were always meant to be more than friends. This was a very enjoyable novel that I had trouble putting down once I started reading. I will definitely keep an eye ou ...more

Since I started reading about the Ford siblings, I have always thought Angelina was the most interesting of the bunch. Her story didn't disappoint. Angelina has come home to Texas to decompress and recover after a devastating business loss. For Angelina, everything has always been about her career and business. Working 100 hour weeks is her normal. She has never touched her trust-fund and has been extremely successful in everything she's always done - until now.

Logan and Angelina were best frie

I’m torn between liking this book and throwing it in a bin and forgetting about it. It was good, I enjoy the Texas ranch setting and Logan the cowboy.

But in all honesty, Angelina and Logan bothered me. Yes, you have personal issues to work out, so either do it or don’t but you’re making a toxic relationship for the both of you by bottling up your feelings and then yelling at each other, only to inevitably have sex just so y’all can finally relax for... oh maybe 12 hours. Then the cycle starts a

This is the first book I have read in the series. It worked as a stand alone novel, although I would have preferred reading the series in order. This story is about the oldest daughter of the Ford family, residing in Texas. The father is a billionaire, but Angelina Ford is independent and prefers to make it on her own. When her business falters, she returns home, for that reason and her father is terminally ill. She connects with her long time friend Logan and sparks fly! Two broken people see e ...more

This is the fourth book in the series – and I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, as there are threads running through it which will make far more sense to you. I have been waiting for Angelina's story, as she was clearly living away from the ranch, and uncomfortable when she came back, so I was ready!

One True Love. Finally. In this conclusion to the River Ranch series, everything finally comes to a head for the one remaining sibling who isn't yet attached. Admittedly I picked up this series halfway in, with the previous book, but here Lane does an excellent job of continuing the feel of the series (as I know it anyway) while also wrapping up long running storylines and giving everyone the HEA or coda they deserve. Truly excellent work, and very much recommended. ...more

My One True Cowboy is the fourth book in the River Ranch series by Soraya M. Lane. A steamy western romance that sweeps you away from the very beginning and holds your attention all while leaving you wanting more. The characters are well-written and develop at a steady pacing making them easy to relate to. Lane has written a lovely romance you are sure to fall in love with. My One True Cowboy is part of the River Ranch series but can easily be read as a standalone novel. However, once you read M ...more

3.5 stars

Throughout this series, this author has (with good reason) made readers not really like Angelina too terribly much. She’s quite rigid and cold in the other books. And, quite honestly, Ange is a bit uptight compared to her siblings. That’s her nature and that’s okay. But she’s far from unfeeling, which is quickly discovered in this story. She has a certain persona that she wears as armor. Angelina has spent her life trying to prove herself to her father and those around her when she has

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review**

I always enjoy visiting the Texas ranch that Soraya Lane has created for us. The Ford siblings have been interesting and entertaining, but probably the most elusive and the one I was most interested in hearing her story is Angelina.

Angelina has been in California living and following her dreams. She's always the sibling that comes home just long enough and then heads back to

My One True Cowboy by Soraya Lane is number four in the River Ranch series and is solid gold for readers of romance. Angelina is home to visit but has not yet told anyone why and how long she would be staying. He father had cancer and was failing. That was reason enough. In the grocery store she ran into her childhood best friend, Logan. She was happy to see him. It had been years and so she invited him to dinner. She could make him grill the steaks and she had a bag of salad. She couldn't cook ...more

This is book 4 in the River Ranch series and while it can be read as a standalone, I would absolutely read the other books in this series before reading this one. Otherwise you may be slightly lost as to a lot of the back stories and relationships. That being said, we get Angelina Ford and Logan Brody's story in this installment. Angelina has come home after losing everything in LA. She doesn't want anyone to know what happened, or how badly she failed. But when she runs into her childhood best ...more

This is the fourth book in the series, but could be read as a stand alone. This story is about Angelina Ford and her best friend from childhood, Logan Brody.

River Ranch is a very wealthy and successful ranch in Texas. However, for some reason, the three older children all fled home when their mother got cancer, leaving their father, Walter, and youngest sister Mia. Angelina, the oldest, never even liked to ride horses. She was an overachiever, only interested in creating businesses and making a

My One True Cowboy by Soraya Lane is a friends-to-lovers romance. It is entertaining, heartfelt, and exciting. Inside, are some key topics such as disabled vets and their service dogs, cancer, and family. I love how everything ties in perfectly. The cast of characters are quirky, hardworking, and strong individuals. Each one has their own strengths and weaknesses that made them so real. They were all likable including the beautiful service dog. My heart melts for each one of them.

The time is finally right for this beautiful friends-to-lovers romance!

Angelina Ford is only home long enough to spend time with her terminally ill father and to regroup after losing her business in LA. Running into her best friend, Logan, spins her in an entirely different direction. Their friendship takes a decidedly adult turn, making it difficult to find the friendship they've always depended on.

Logan is back on his family's ranch after a devastating retirement from the military. He's not r

My One True Cowboy is book 4 in the River Ranch series, but it can be read as a stand alone. I didn't feel like I missed anything because I hadn't read the earlier books in the series.

Angelina is known for being a workaholic but shes back in town with her tail tucked firmly in place not letting her family know how bad things are for her right now. While shes in town she spends more time with her father and comes across her childhood best friend Logan all grown up. He's an ex solider with some baggage. It looks like both of them are needing a bit of distraction and it just so happens that they've got a great attraction going on. Now the issue is do they risk their friendship?

Okay so I have mixed feelings about this book. Angelina is a strong woman who doesn't let to much keep her down. Shes suffered a devastating career loss but she comes home, gets her poop in a group, and goes back after it. She isn't afraid to put in the hard work and effort to get her self to be successful. She never has depended upon her trust fund, but advice from her father has her on her way.

Then we have Logan. He is back on his family ranch to heal from the military experience that has lef

I really wanted to like this one more than I did, it had all of the elements I have loved in the past. But, much like Mia's story, there was something about Angelina's story that didn't quite connect and I found myself struggling to finish it. Between Angelina and Logan there were so many issues that I wasn't sure they would ever get past them.

This isn't so much a second chance romance as a friends to lovers with an HEA- and it's a good one. Angie has come home to Texas after a big kerplooey in her work life (and her personal life, well, that wasn't so good either). Logan's come home after multiple deployments; he's brought his service dog Ella (love Ella). They were childhood friends but haven't seen each other for years so you know, don't you, that when they meet in the grocery store, that there will be a grownup spark. The characte ...more
