Tom Smyth thinks he’s on his way to a romantic vacation with his on again, off again boyfriend Steve. Steve has actually booked them at a Dude Ranch thinking something new will add spark to their love life.

Tom feels a spark alright, but it’s for the gorgeous lead cowboy on the Rambling Cow Dude Ranch, Rex. Steve notices the attraction between the two and his jealously escalates until he takes off without Tom—leaving the city boy and the sexy cowboy to explore their obvious attraction for one another.

 

Review:  The Dude Ranch by Cat Blaine is not part of a series that I could find. I chose this book because I wanted to see how this book would turn out.

Tom Smyth goes on a romantic vacation with his boyfriend, Steve even when he should be looking for a new job. However, it seems the romantic vacation turns out to be a bust when Steve leaves him. Tom embraces the dude ranch vacation.

Rex works on Rambling Cow Dude Ranch. He helps Tom learn all aspects of life on a dude ranch. The connection grows when Steve leaves. I liked how Rex seems to grab life and take a chance on Tom. The sex scenes were intense. Rex and Tom make a great couple.

I found this book is very well written with overall plot that was believable. The main and secondary characters were interesting and I enjoyed seeing that they were not perfect. The characters had faults. At thirty-eight pages long, this story had a well-defined beginning, middle and end. The ending of the story was predictable but it was expected considering the length of the story. Overall, this was a great book.
