Hay and Heartbreak (Mossy Glenn Ranch #7) by Bailey Bradford

Hay and Heartbreak There’s more than one way to imprison a man.

Daniel Edmonds spent almost a decade in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. After finally having his name cleared, he’d hoped things would get easier, but people still look at him like he’s a murderer, and talk about him in hushed voices as he walks past. When he discovers that he really can’t go home again, he has to decide what to do to survive.

Adapting to the outside world isn’t easy, especially for a man alone.

Fear of temptation to fall back into his old ways scares Daniel into near-seclusion. When given the chance to help his brother Duke and brother-in-law, Frankie, Daniel agrees. His pride takes a hit when he has to let them buy his plane ticket to Montana, but Daniel’s learning that family is more important than anything else.

That’s what he tells himself, although maybe he’s running, just a little, and not just trying to help Duke and Frankie. One thing is for certain—he doesn’t mind spending a little time on the Mossy Glenn Ranch.

Hector Gallegos works hard and keeps his head down. He hasn’t been interested in more than the occasional hook-up here and there. He’s growing tired of that lifestyle, though, after seeing so many happy couples—and one treble—at the Mossy Glenn.

When Dan Edmonds shows up to visit his brother, Duke, Hector can’t help but notice the man. Dan’s scarred face doesn’t dim the attraction that immediately flares between him and Hector.

Lust comes easy, but building something that will last is a challenge. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Crystal Marie_s RamblingsTAG

It’s been awhile since I’ve visited Mossy Glenn Ranch, but I can say that I was very glad to go back there!  Bradford sure does great with the series because even though this is book 7 in the series, we are still given updates on what is happening with the other couples that have already gotten together throughout the series.

As a reader, I really enjoy that because when you get wrapped up in a series, you can’t help but wonder what has happened to the other couples.

But onto the couple in this book, I have to say that Dan really tugged on my heartstrings! I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him and wanted to give him a hug for everything he had been through – and was still going through throughout the book.  I did like how Bradford though allowed Dan to grow, and it wasn’t an instant overnight change with him, no it was gradual and very realistic.  Now Hector’s character was one that I was instantly drawn to for the simple fact that I liked how cheerful he was.  He really lite up the story in more ways than one.  Being a friend to Dan, and just being an overall great man.

Two things that I always know when I read a book by Bradford is that there’s going to be a fair bit of smut, and there’s always a HEA.  Well, I can say that Bradford really threw me for a twist with this one because there is something that happens that just caused me to almost throw my kindle.

I won’t say anything else, but this.  Trust me, you wanna read this one!
