Ty Hard, By L.E. Harner


**This book contains Male Male Relations**
After six long months in rehab, Navy Veteran Tyler Hardin received his medical discharge and heads west to visit with his mentor and surrogate father, only to arrive minutes after his old friend passes. Ranch owner Cass Cartwright takes one look at the handsome stranger and knows he’s in danger of doing the one thing he swore never to do: fall in love. Cass works to convince Tyler to overcome his past and give a relationship with another man a chance, even while someone is working to sabotage his ranch and his one true chance at love.
 
This book is one of the few books that while reading has brought tears to my eyes.  I actually had to put the book down because I was so upset about what Ty had been through.  Let me tell you, it was horrible and I so wish I could tell you, but I don’t want to give anything away.
Just because I’m saying that it made me cry doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t read this book.  It is a great book and you should read it.
While this book was on the shorter end of what I had been reading recently, it was still a really good read to me.  I loved the idea of the ranch that everyone is welcome there and they don’t care about a person’s sexuality.  I also enjoyed how the book was not completely about that.  There was more to the story than a bunch of hot sexy cowboys getting it on with each other.
Cass’s character, although what you do see of him, he was really nice and sweet, but I wish we would have been able to learn more about his past and history.  We learn a lot of the big things that Ty had been through that have shaped him into who he is.  But you don’t learn that much about Cass.
An issue that I had was with Roy.  I felt really let down because I had hoped we would be able to find out more about him and Gibby since Gibby was such a big influence in Ty’s life.  It seemed like after the beginning of the story, Roy just disappeared.
But even taking all that into consideration, I still think this was a great book and it was a must read from me.
