Return to Montana as a tough-talking cowboy meets his match in Jennifer Ryan’s newest Wild Rose Ranch novel.
Ex-Army Ranger Drake McGrath has come home to Montana, locked in a battle with himself, lashing out at those who love him most—driving away his ex-fiancée and alienating his family. But Adria Holloway sees beyond Drake’s tough talk to the raw pain beneath.
Raised with her twin sister Juliana by a neglectful mother at the Wild Rose Ranch, Adria also struggles to put the trauma from her past behind her. To help them both, she makes Drake a shocking deal—a no-strings relationship that’ll help them both face down their demons. Maybe it’s a way for her and Drake to heal each other, one sizzling night at a time…
The heat between them is instant and incredible. But the biggest challenges are yet to come. With Juliana battling her addiction and Drake working on his issues, Adria realizes she can’t save everyone. But Drake and Adria discover love can survive tragedy and loss—and they can have the life they never thought possible if they just hold on.

Tough Talking Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan
~ Jennifer Ryan’s Tough Talking Cowboy is the 3rd book of the Wild Rose Ranch series. It is not a typical boy meets girl, and boy gets girl romance. It is an intense and emotional story about two people fighting to overcome their demons.
PTSD is not something you tell a person to “get over it.” It is a time-consuming ordeal veterans suffer every day. Substance abuse affects everyone. Jennifer Ryan approaches the two subjects with upmost care to stress the seriousness, the how substance abuse and child abuse affect the lives of her characters.
Both Drake and Adria represent someone we know and love suffering whether from PTSD or other kind of abuses. I cheer for every small step of their accomplishment and grieve with them when tragedy strikes.
Andria is bold and sassy and so determined. I love the way she confronts Drake about his “problem” and laugh at one scene where Drake’s therapist is listening to their exchange. Their romance is sweet yet fiery. I could not put the book down. The plot is superbly written, and the characterization is outstanding. Tough Talking Cowboy is a fitting end for the Wild Rose Ranch series with Drake and Andria overcoming tragedy with triumph.

Reviewer: Karen’s legally blind status may prevent her from driving her car, but it doesn’t stop her from reading books. Whenever she isn’t on Facebook, she reads novels of hot alphas whether they’re cowboys, ex-military, vampires, wolf shifters, Scotsmen in kilts, or Rakes of the Regency era. She also enjoys spicy romances and mystery thrillers. When not reading, she dabbles in writing cowboy and vampire stories and wears western clothing, boots, and hats. The only thing missing is a cowboy and his horse, (or his Ford F-150 truck). She lives in hot, hot Florida, (dreaming of moving where the cowboys roam), along with a hubby of 28 years and 2 cats.
