Review: Cowboy Tough (Tangled Up in Texas #4) by Michelle Beattie

There’s no such thing as a coincidence…

Ryker Granger can’t believe his luck when he meets a beautiful woman stranded on the side of the road outside of Last Stand, Texas. Normally this rancher and part-time mechanic would be too reserved to jump into a relationship, especially since his family is still reeling from questions surrounding their father’s heart attack. But his life’s a tangled mess and Shannon is a welcome distraction.

Shannon Smith set out to meet Ryker Granger. Her staged car breakdown was only the beginning of her plan. Meeting Ryker is her chance to right the wrongs his father inflicted on her family. Her plan skews wildly off course—she only meant to score a date, not fall in love. And Ryker’s a straight arrow; he’ll never forgive such blatant deception. But how can she walk away from the man who has claimed her heart?

As Ryker solves the mystery around his father and learns why Shannon came to Last Stand, he faces his toughest choice yet. Forgive a lie or lose the woman he loves forever?


My Review:

An emotionally charged love story.

Ryker Granger has a lot on his plate.  He is running the family ranch and his automotive repair shop and facing an unknown medical condition while his father is in a coma.  So, when a new girl, Shannon Smith, shows up in Last Stand and takes a liking to him, Ryker doesn’t know what to think of it.  Should he trust his instincts and try to get to know her better, or walk away? 

Shannon came to Last Stand with one thing on her mind, to right a wrong.  While trying to get information from Ryker, she falls in love with him.  But time is running out and soon she will have to confess her real reason for being in Last Stand even though it will break both of their hearts.

Ryker and Shannon’s story is one I won’t soon forget.  I enjoyed their romance even knowing it would backfire eventually.  But watching them pick up the pieces and start over was inspirational for me.  It showed that with determination, anything can be achieved.  I really liked the family connection between the brothers and how they came together when they needed to.  There are a lot of surprises and revelations in this book as well.  I highly recommend it.  It is part of a series, but it can be read on it’s own.
