My Kind of Cowboy (Wranglers of Wyoming #1) by R.C. Ryan [arc review]

51315998. sx318 sy475 Hello Hello Sunnies! I hope you are all staying safe during these crazy times. My Kind of Cowboy was my first read for May and I thoroughly enjoyed it, RC Ryan writes easy to read stories and easy to love characters.


Blurb:
Brand Merrick is a take-charge cowboy who loves a challenge and being in the thick of the action on his family ranch. When Brand takes a fall from his horse and the town doctor orders physical therapy, he doesn't intend to rest for long. They make a compromise that the physical therapist will come stay on the ranch for six weeks so Brand can do his exercises between his duties running the ranch. But Brand wasn't expecting to be working with beautiful, tough city-girl Avery.


Avery Grant has no patience for the sexy cowboy who makes it clear therapy is a waste of his time. She won't back down, especially since she came to Wyoming for another reason... to get away from the mysterious threats she keeps receiving. But the threats have followed her to the Merrick ranch. And soon, Brand isn't feeling quite so hostile toward his new therapist... in fact, keeping her safe becomes his only priority.

The Review: 3.5/5 Stars

The book starts with a bang.  It opens with an introduction to a tragic accident many years ago that forever changed the Merrick's family life.
That being said, as with every RC Ryan book I have read to date, it had that 'feel good' feeling in the end. The story was sweet, funny, and charming.
The whole family dynamics added to the 'feel good' vibe of the book. Every single secondary character was well put together and could easily have his/her own book at some point.
Brand is a cowboy through and through and would rather deal with pain than to stop working to do some therapy. Avery is used to strong minded patients and knows how to get her way. 
Their personalities and view points didn't really crash for long. Brand was willing to give it a try very early on and their friendship/relationship developed from there. 
They had chemistry and worked well together. His protective and careful nature and her kind and watchful one matched. 
Although I really enjoyed the book I think overall it sounded a little too similar to other books, books by RC Ryan herself and other cowboy romances. I even went back to read another review I wrote for one of her books and found I used the exact same words to describe certain aspects of it. 
So do I recommend it? most definitely!!! I read the book in two sittings. Just don't go in expecting anything new and refreshing. If you usually love cowboy romances you will love this one too.

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
