Oh. My. Heart! I do not have words to express how tragically beautiful this story was to me. The moment Colt is introduced, he captures your heart with the love he has for his sister. They bonded through grief after the death of their parents, and he promises to take care of her. You know through reading the blurb that his sister dies leaving him with her daughter, but the story line up to that is just heart wrenching. Tears flowed down my face as I ached for him. How much tragedy can one person ...more

"He's like a wounded animal. Existing just to react, chasing the next thrill that will make him forget the pain for awhile" Evelyn Hart
And so is the story of Colt Montgomery. A rodeo champion who has more money than he knows what to do with. Unfortunately, all of that money cannot soothe the absolute heartbreak he has suffered throughout his young life. Just when you think nothing worse could happen, life cruelly hands him more loss. It's unimaginable that someone has to deal with so much sorrow

The Wounded Cowboy Billionaire ~ Billionaire Hearts Ranch bk 1 by Edith Mackenzie.
An excellent start to a new series, Edith is a new author to me and I was pleasantly surprised how I fell into this story from the start.
You will need some tissues for parts of this story- I did.(this is at the beginning though)This has a story that is very true to life and has been brilliantly protrade in this story.

I loved Colt & Evelyn’s story! It was full of drama, romance, angst and life lessons.
Sure it seemed overly dramatic at times but it was meant to show that no matter what love perseveres; through Trials and tribulations, life’s ups and downs that love whether it be for a significant other, friends or Family that it will always shine through the darkness.
It was so exciting to read Evelyn’s & Colt’s story unfold, from the beginning, to the middle where life really kicks you around to the end, wher

The first book in the Billionaire Hearts Ranch series a well written emotional story that held my interest until the end. Colt Montgomery and his sister Indie lost their parents when they where younger and the two men that where there for them were Logan and Bennett. Bennett loved Indie even back then. Now Colt has lost Indie and Bennett, but has gained their daughter Hope. Evelyn, Indie's best friend steps in to help With Hope. I enjoyed seeing this story come together.

"I don’t want to feel like I’ve wasted all those years loving you, idolizing you. So, I’m going to leave while I still have memories that aren’t tarnished."

Y'all this book will have your emotions all over the place but you'll still love it. Nearly every chapter had me close to if not in tears. Bennett and Indie's story could easily be it's own book. The small piece of their story that we do get is good.

Colt and Evelyn, the grief and strength they have was well written. I definitely wanted more o

This is the first book in a series.
After several tragic events, Colt has a lot of hurt and anger inside. As his friend Evelyn lives through the aftermath of these events with him, he realizes that she’s more than just a best friend. But after lashing out at her because of his pain, will she forgive him?
While characters in the book live together before marriage and there are insinuations of other characters’ sex lives, this is a clean romance (no steamy scenes).

WARNING!!! You will definitely need tissues while reading this book. Yes, I cried a bunch, but this was a beautifully written story about loss, love, and what happens when all seems bleak. I’m not going to leave any spoilers, but you will have a love/hate relationship with Colt Justice Montgomery. Please grab your copy along with a box of tissues and get ready to fall for these wonderful characters. I can’t wait to read the next book in this wonderful series.

Loved this book. The plot and characters in this book are very relatable to all who read. Heart wrenching grief, chasing dreams, letting go of disappointment and opening up to possibilities. Once you start this book it will be hard to put down. Chase, Indie, Evelyn, Missy, and Logan will play havoc on your emotions as they deal with grief, love and Hope.

Well written

The cowboy of the story, Colt, isn’t just wounded the poor guy is broken. He has had so much success in life but has also lost so much. All he has left in the world is his sister’s baby Hope and her best friend Evelyn. Will he accept the family he has left? Or will he push them away through his grief and despair. Their story was heartbreaking but also beautiful. The end of their story was so amazing.

What a tragic beginning and you will need tissues to get through to his HEA - it was a tough read to get me through all the loss - since losing both of my parents to cancer in recent years - but I do look forward to more books in this series - no spoilers from me!

It has so much going on and sometimes is like a yo yo of emotions. Tragic he lost something very close to him. His sister's best friend comes back into the picture in several ways, I don't want to give any spoilers and ruin the story for you. It is very well written and recommended. I was given a review copy and voluntarily review it.

The fuel gauge needle hovered south of empty on the beaten-up old pickup. Why the heck couldn’t Logan even manage to do simple things like keeping a full tank of gas in his truck? Colt wanted to slam his hands on the steering wheel in frustration. He didn’t have time to pull over. He didn’t have time to stop. He just didn’t have time.

The lead weight in his chest pulled him down, making it impossible to breathe. The truck glided to a halt on the side of the road, Colt not sure if it had simply d
