The last cowboy...

All work and no play makes Finn a dull cowboy. Since his divorce, Finn O'Roarke has put all of his time into his Seattle-based microbrewery, unaware that back in Wyoming, his foster parents are on the verge of ruin. Now Finn and his foster brothers are trying to save Thunder Mountain Ranch--and only one woman can help them turn it all around.

Marketing guru Chelsea Trask has had a thing for the gorgeous brewer for ages. When they work together at Thunder Mountain Ranch, however, she starts to see Finn's cowboy side. And it's irresistibly hot. Best of all, the attraction that's been sizzling beneath the surface has erupted in some very sexy situations.

But is Chelsea falling for the real Finn...or for the cowboy he used to be?

My Review:

This was a fantastic return to Thunder Mountain Ranch. Thompson takes readers on a chemistry filled, hope inducing ride that travels from Seattle through Wyoming. I loved the way that she painted the scenery for me along the way. I felt as if I’d really been there alongside the characters. This story was so filled with hope that I couldn’t help but smile throughout. I also enjoyed the chance to take a short trip back to Last Chance before hitting Thunder Mountain. The way these two series tie together is fantastic. Thompson had me crossing my fingers for the Thunder Mountain Ranch by the end of this one. I was hoping for a miracle right alongside the characters.

Chelsea & Finn’s banter was so real & fun. You can really get up close and personal with them through it. The simultaneously relaxed yet strained manner in which they interact speaks volumes. Finn’s inability to see reason & what was right in front of him was difficult at times, but we got to see him come to grips with the ways he could balance work with life. I enjoyed reacquainting myself with the other characters in the series. Thompson doesn’t go in depth with their development here, relying on past novels. But don’t worry if you haven’t read the rest of the series, this can still be read as a standalone. Same goes from the Chances that we encounter. And I, for one, definitely need to experience a Jack Chance dance lesson.

This was another hot & heartfelt novel from Thompson. I love her look at ranch life & at family, whether nuclear, extended, or bonded.
