Description: Growing up as the son of Quinn McNeal, Milo wants nothing more than to get from under the man’s thumb. His father is as famous as he is rich, but he is also a tyrant, micromanaging Milo’s life, even down to the fact of who Milo is going to marry. Desperate, Milo flees, settling in a small town that he hopes Quinn will never discover.
Bryson Duran was the last of the men in the Triple-B ranch to find his mate. When a cute waiter starts working at the Ugly Broad Saloon, Bryson is smitten. The fiery little redhead flips every trigger Bryson possesses. Although Bryson is built like an ox, he has trouble finding the courage to ask Milo out.
When Bryson discovers that Milo is on the run from his father, he proposes a plan to stop Quinn from forcing Milo into a marriage he doesn’t want. But the plan backfires and the men of the Triple-B ranch must launch a rescue to get Milo back
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars
My Review: This was meant to be a quick, steamy read to help get me out of my reading slump. It didn’t work, but such is life.
I was in the mood for something short, sweet, and a little smutty. This fit the bill. Cowboy Rescue was also a good addition to the Bear Country series. My only complaint is that we never really got closure regarding Milo’s father. There was an allusion to what would happen, but nothing definite was stated. Perhaps it will be mentioned later in the series. Other than that the romance was sweet, the angst was just enough, and the drama wasn’t too ridiculous. The sex was steamy without being overly explicit or uncomfortable with bad dialogue as some writers make the mistake of doing. I will definitely continue with the series.
