The Cowboy Next Door (Montana Strong #2) by R.C. Ryan [arc review]

Hello Hello sunnies! Don't you just love discovering new authors? I most certainly do :) 
R.C. Ryan, I am your new fan!
A huge thanks to the Read Forever Team for providing me with a copy of this book.
Here is the Blurb:
Penny Cash is down on her luck. Her dream is to become a teacher, but finding a school with an open position is proving to be difficult. In need of money, Penny accepts a job as a housekeeper at the Monroe Ranch. She's not one to shy away from hard work, but Penny didn't realize how tough it would be to resist the sexy cowboy who's now her boss.
Bad boy Sam Monroe has no intention of ever getting tied down. But from the moment Penny begins working at the ranch, there's nothing he enjoys more than getting under her skin. And before too long, he finds himself flirting with forever. So when Penny's little brother comes to town and gets involved with the wrong people, Sam will stop at nothing to protect the woman he's coming to love--and the family she holds dear. 

The review: 5 Stars

Overall I thought the book was simply put: sweet. It had this feel good vibe to it that would make you smile constantly. Yes, there was some tension there, specially towards the end, but overall it was just a nice and 'feel good' book. 
The whole family dynamics just added to the 'feel good' vibe. I absolutely adored Mac and his whole family. Sam and his brothers found in Mac and his ranch family bonds that are stronger than blood. The whole background story was just beautiful and really touching. 

But, lets talk about the 'main event'- Mac and Penny! They were both great characters and perfect for each other. Both their pasts has made them who they are today and they need a bit of what the other has to offer. Penny needs some more laughter and Sam needs to open up a little more. Amazing couple. 


And for those who have not read the first book in the series- do not fret. I had NO idea this was the second book even AFTER I finished it. I only realized there was a first book when I went to copy the blurb for this one and saw in big letters Montana Strong #2. In other words: #imblind but also #bookperfection
