Blog Tour - Review: Heartbreak Ranch

Title - Heartbreak Ranch
Author - Anastasia Ryan
Genre - New Adult Romance
Published - October 15th 2013
Publisher - Swoon Romance
Format - Kindle review copy


Recent college graduate, Graysen Beaufort, resigns herself to two weeks of boredom at a dude ranch honoring her parents’ wishes for one last family vacation. 

She doesn't plan on meeting Colt McCord, an irresistible cowboy who threatens to bring disorder to Graysen's ordinarily ordered life. 

Dodging an overprotective family, an unwelcome suitor, and certain heartbreak, Graysen struggles to break free of her limitations and submit her heart to Colt’s love. But learning to let go isn't easy, even with a man like Colt. 

Colt McCord, White Pine Ranch’s head horse trainer, loves the busy, back-breaking work of a cattle ranch. 

But when he meets a beautiful and spirited woman from Iowa, she makes him forget everything he'd known before, and he risks everything to be with her. 

Colt is accustomed to breaking horses, but can he tame Graysen’s wild heart before it is too late?


I received Heartbreak Ranch in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours. Greysen’s vacation plans didn't include a long road trip, horses or hot guys. After all she wanted to head to Europe with her friends but thanks to her parents family trip she’s going to spend two weeks in Wyoming. If only they have cell service she may just make it the whole two weeks. After a long car ride with her older brother and teenage sister Greysen is happy to have a real bed to sleep in since the hotels have been awful.

 Arriving at the ranch her family heads up to the main house after settling in but Greysen sneaks off for a walk finding a wild horse with a handsome cowboy. Enchanted by the horse and rider she spies on him around the side of the barn. She returns back to her family and the party only to be introduced to the cowboy when he joins for a brief drink. Neither Greysen or Colt can deny the attraction to each other and what starts off as one crazy night turns into a whirlwind romance. However while Colt may be happy at the ranch Greysen is a city girl and what happens after her two weeks are up?

I really like Greysen she’s a sweet innocent girl who needs to break out of her shell and learn to live. I think Colt is perfect what can I say sexy guy on a black stallion named Pumpkin. Loved it!!!! The chemistry between Greysen and Colt is exactly what I like in my steamy romance.

I was enchanted by the concept right from the start since I’m a horse junky give me a steamy romance with horses I’m sold. The characters are easy to connect with you can’t help falling for Greysen with her unique name. Colt is just amazing he had me sold when we first encountered him on Pumpkin. I love Heartbreak Ranch it’s a fast paced steamy romance that sparks the imagination and leaves you breathless. I will admit the steamy parts make me blush and Heartbreak Ranch is no exception or lacking in the steam department but I think the author wrote them well. The whole book is well written for a debut novel. I would suggest mature teenager to adults will enjoy this book because it is steamy. 
5 out of 5 stars
