Trapped—by family, duty, and responsibility.
That’s the plight Cam Miller has wrestled with every day of his life. Forced to provide for his little sister. Obligated to maintain the family ranch. Imprisoned by choices others made for him. But now, with his sister off to college, he can finally pursue the life he’s always dreamed of... far from Granite Junction and the ugly whispers about his family’s sordid history. Or so he thought. After one night of passion comes back to haunt him, he fears he’s about to be tethered to the town once more...
Independent—from family, relationships, and matters of the heart.
Molly Brennan was living her best life as a rodeo trick rider when an unexpected pregnancy forced her from the arena. A failed marriage later, she is perfectly fine running her own hair salon and raising her daughter solo. Men bring heartache, and she wants none of that mess in her life. Yet when one night with sexy cowboy, and a few too many shots, results in a broken condom, Molly is prepared to go it alone once more.
After absolving Cam of his responsibilities to her and their baby, Molly pulls herself up by her big girl panties. She's handled things this far on her own; the last thing she wants is anyone feeling trapped into being with her. Finding himself torn between the desire for family and his need to break free, where will Cam’s heart lead him?

THE RESTLESS COWBOY by Megan Ryder
Cam and Molly’s love story in The Restless Cowboy by Megan Ryder, book two in her Granite Junction series, is a tale of trust, opening one’s heart, taking responsibility for one’s actions and learning the importance of compromise.
I loved this story; although it took a while for me to understand Molly. She appeared to be strong, independent, have an “I can do this myself” attitude, but deep down life was a struggle. Because she had done things by herself for so long she didn’t remember how to accept love and help.
I loved Cam all along; hard not to enjoy a sexy cowboy. Cam was dealt a difficult life; one he faced by himself and dealt with; never sharing his burden. Cam and Molly were more alike than either realized, both needing to accept help from others and open up to not only share their love but to accept that together they made a better team than alone. The way Cam treated Riley, like a daughter, was precious and added not only to the story, but showed how important those in his life were to Cam; that Cam was not his father.
Ms. Ryder wrote a wonderful and heartwarming story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Cam and Molly a chance for love, a family and a future together. I highly recommend The Restless Cowboy to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
