I really like the setting of AM Arthur's Clean Slate Ranch series, the found families and friendships between the men and women involved are joyous to behold.

The series has been mostly a hit for me and this fourth book is no exception to the rule. However, I also found both of the characters frustrating at times and I simply couldn't understand why Robin had such a sticking point over telling people how his husband had died.

I mean, I totally got the trauma of his husband's death, the guilt over

Thanks to Netgalley for the complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first A.M. Arthur book, but it certainly won't be my last. I love the sense of community she created with the Ranch and I'll definitely be downloading the previous books in the series to learn the stories of how the rest of the couples got together.

I loved how Shawn and Robin's relationship grew slowly over time. They both had some hard things happen to them in their pasts and it felt realistic how slowly

I had a very difficult time getting into this book, and I suspect that I am not the target demographic. I did like how patient Robin was with Shawn, and I liked the reality presented of Shawn living on the economic edge.

I found it quite difficult to tell the secondary characters apart; they all seemed to have the same personality, they were all partnered and emotionally healthy relationships, they were all very emotionally expressive. I couldn't keep all of the names apart. Another reviewer use

I had mixed feelings about this book. I really liked the main character, Shawn. He was a lovely guy who had been through a hell of a lot. One of the biggest challenges I had with the story was that nearly everyone was gay! I refer to these kinds of books as "Gay Disneyland'. When most of the ranch hands turned out to be gay and all partnered in healthy relationships ... I began to find it difficult to suspend my disblief.

I also had trouble with the fact that every character in the novel was open

It is well written by a talented author,but for me it did not do much.
The setting is not real,the story is told before by others and not really much of a surprise.
It is nice,low on angst,drama or even steam.It is a nice lovely story in second chances
and believe again in yourself,and taking a chance in friendship,trust and even love again.
A sweet story,well written and enjoyable.

Lucky Break was my first book by A.M. Arthur and I loved it. Shawn and Robin were so real and amazing together. I loved the story and the writing. I really want to read the first 3 books now and certainly the next one!

No stranger to the writing world, A.M. Arthur has been creating stories in her head since she was a child and scribbling them down nearly as long. She credits an early fascination with male friendships (bromance wasn't a thing yet) with her later discovery of and subsequent affair with m/m romance stories. When not writing, she can be found in her kitchen, pretending she's an amateur chef and tryi ...more
