The emotional intensity of this book blew me away!

So, right from the start Dane is no one's idea of a hero. He's still fighting the demons of his childhood, which puts him on the road back to his hometown simply for lack of an alternative. Once there, he's got a lot to prove, not only to the townspeople and his brother, but mostly to himself. But first, he manages to confront his father and exhibit the same exact lack of respect for a particular law that his brother did at the beginning of the

"Screwed and Satisfied" is the second book in the Moon Ranch series, only this time, we have the pleasure of getting to know brother, Dane Moon. Our first introduction to Dane was of him following closely in his worthless father's footsteps-- drunker than a skunk. His life as a Las Vegas male dancer and married to a stripper was hitting rock bottom, as he finds himself faced with owing money to a loan shark, beat up and with his truck taken away as payment. His wife is divorcing him and there is ...more

The second book in Em Petrovas Moon Ranch tackles the ongoing issues of three brothers returning to the family homestead after the death of their abusive father. In Tough and Tamed, Zayden defied all odds, and discovered that he actually adored this land and found his forever love while battling his conflicting emotions.

But in Screwed and Satisfied, middle brother Dane, has returned home burdened by a failed marriage, bad decisions, and the very real possibility that a chain of nefarious events

Brennah is the new-ish vet in town, and she's super busy because she also owns a small ranch with a variety of animals. Dane is back in town, newly divorced and an unemployed male dancer, trying to stay ahead of the loan shark after his hide. Their first meeting was lol-funny. They're both facing the same demon (an alcoholic parent), and he has two of his own - drinking, and the gambling that already has him in hot water. This book is just a terrific followup to the first of the series. Brennah ...more

The Moons are back!

From a childhood none of them could put enough distance from, the brothers were going to make a new mark on their hometown. This time out Dane was going to get a chance at redemption. And love

I loved Danes character. He was not your typical male romance lead. Oh, he was a gorgeous cowboy, no doubt about that but he was not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. In the first book in the series there was all the bad in stark display with glimpses of the good

Dane, the blacksheep of the family, leaves Las Vegas, his loan shark and his ex-wife and returns home. When he gets into town, he meets some of his father's old friends and proceeds to get drunk. Dane's father was the town drunk and Dane never wanted to follow in his footsteps. When he leaves the bar, he walks home and ends up sleeping in the neighbor's barn. Brennah had gone to school with Dane and had always found him handsome. She was very quiet in school and tried to keep her alcoholic ...more

Having signed divorce papers, beaten up and truck taken by guys sent to collect on his gambling debt, Dane Moon leaves Vegas to return to Moon Ranch. At the time getting drunk seemed like a good idea since he was going to visit his old man's grave first. Turns out that probably wasn't the best one.

Veterinarian Brennah Peterson bought the ranch neighboring the Moon's.  She doesn't have time for a drunk cowboy sleeping in her barn. When cold water in his face doesn't work she ties him to her

Screwed and Satisfied is the second book in the Moon Ranch series, but could be read on its own. Dane has no money, no woman, and no car when he arrives back at his family ranch. Brennah is his neighbor, the very capable veterinarian, and the woman he cant take him mind off of. Drawn together and wanting more, will his past drive them apart?

A bit of a slow burn at first, I absolutely loved Dane and Brennahs romance! I loved that this book was a little longer, so that we could dig deeper into

What an amazing and heartbreaking book this was.

First I have to say, that I loved the character of Brennah. She is strong, loyal, caring and a hard worker. This woman never sits down!! I loved the care and compassion she has not only for animals but also people. I liked that she had heard all the rumors about the Moon boys but she didn't believe it. She gave them the benefit of the doubt to prove what kind of men they are. I liked that she was the first one to get Dane but also be the first one

I received a copy from BookSprout; this is my honest review.
-The story starts in Vegas with a violent conjugal fight that ends in signing divorce papers, when our hero, Dane, doesn't think so much of himself and ends up in Brennah's land instead of his family's.
-Dane needs to prove himself and Brennah needs help; it's a win-win situation. She also needs, just like Dane, to let go of the past, the hurt and letdowns of living with a drunk parent.
-I felt like Brennah was cared for like a man

Dane Moon is quite a troublemaker, as evidenced by his marrying a Vegas stripper. He is divorced now and back home in Colorado on the family homestead, trying somewhat to turn his life around. From all appearances, it doesnt look hopeful.

When veterinarian Brennah Peterson finds Dane passed out drunk in her barn, cant awaken him and drags him out of there with her tractor well, the reader can see that lady can handle herself and Dane wont be getting away with much anymore!

Oh, this was one hot, read I mean. Their chemistry was as hot as the fire that burned in Brennah's field.
Dane didn't think he was good enough for the good Doctor--of animals. Brennah understood more than most what it's like to grow up with an alcoholic parent. These two had to learn to trust, Brennah had to trust Dane, but first Dane had to trust himself.
Old man Moon left a heck of a legacy for his three sons, they found more and more of it as time went on. They learned long ago to be

Dane Moons life is in the toilet - he has lost his wife, his job, is in debt to a loan shark because of his gambling and looses his truck to try to pay down his gambling debt. He heads home to Moon Ranch and what is left of his family to try to pull himself together. This turns into a scalding hot romance with the neighbour next door to their ranch. When the secrets from both their pasts surface Dane decides to walk away and let her go but realizes he cannot do that - his feelings are too strong ...more

I am enjoying the Moon Ranch series. This book served to confirm how much damage a bad parent could do to a kid's self esteem. Dane didn't believe in his self worth because of his father and his upbringing.

When he returned to Moon Ranch, that was one of a few shadows hanging over his head. Brennah was strong, intelligent, open minded, and independent. Where it not for that, her initial meeting with Dane might well have been their last encounter.

This book had a steady pace that kept me engaged
Marianela Aybar (Mari Loves Books Blog)
Another Moon brother has to come to terms with his past and chosen to make a different future. I love that they fall hard and after some head knocking, Dane knows he cant let Brennah go.

Dane was vulnerable when he finally admitted his feeling and asked for help. When he spoke to Esme about it, it brought out a side you didnt see often and that made him more intriguing.

There are some hard conversations here and pasts that are not so pretty. But I love that Esme and then Dane, choose to move past

He has some drinking issues he needs to address if he wants to get anywhere with Brennah, the veterinarian. Not all the town residents believe that the irresponsible Moon boys have turned over a new leaf so they are not very welcoming. Dane is next in line to prove it if he plans on living there long term.

After his abusive father dies and his wife leaves him, he returns home an ex-Vegas stripper without a penny to his name, an alcoholic and owing gambling debts. He finally makes his way back to his childhood home. Brennah, who also grew up with an alcoholic mom, finds him passed out drunk in her barn.

Screwed and Satisfied (Moon Ranch) by Em Petrova. This story was so heartfelt for me, both main characters have a not so nice past that always seems to have a way of sneaking into their now. Dash is so complex; I found his character to be very intriguing in the fact that he had so much to give but never saw any of the good in himself. Brennah was made to be his better half. Together they are able to conquer lifes challenges and experience its beauty. And THANK YOU Ms. Petrova for allowing ...more

Wow, this book certainly had me gripped from the start. Danes character starts off as an uncaring, debt ridden, drunk who decides that he needs to turn his life around after a disaster of a marriage. He leaves his dancer job in Vegas and heads home. Brennah is the local vet and the attraction between them is evident from first meeting, throw in a few ex school enemies and youve got a good story. There is some steamy passion between Dane and Brennah and I particularly liked the way their ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book.

This is the second book in The Moon Ranch series, it is a standalone romance with no cliffhangers. There is plenty of chemistry and sizzle between Dane and Brennah, some drama and a whole lot of love. Dane is the typical bad boy, male dancer, stripper ex wife, drinking and gambling but when he meets Brennah he wants to be a better man and works hard at changing his bad ways. I honestly didn't like Dane in the beginning of the story but he slowly changed
