Review: Rambling Star Ranch by Diane J. Reed

About the Book
Tempest Wright has become a local celebrity with the tough love advice she dishes out on her popular radio show in the small western town of Bandits Hollow. She’s got all the answers for kicking two-timing husbands, freeloaders, and other losers to the curb. That is, until her son’s unruly Angus nearly gets him thrown out of 4-H. Not even Tempest’s shock jock one-liners can get through to this little bull, and what she needs most is an expert cowboy to put the animal through his paces. Little does she know that handsome steer wrestler Dixon Ramsey has a few sexy and surprising paces of his own. And with a bit of magical help from Granny Tinker, Dixon shows Tempest a whole new world where love is real on the range, second chances are worth fighting for, and only the toughest cowboys survive–because they know how to stay.

My review:

Rambling Star Ranch is a fun and captivating romance with just the right touch of magical realism. Tempest is a strong yet vulnerable woman and a wonderful mother. Exactly the type of character I love to read about! She has been hurt in her past and basically made a job out of protecting others from the same fate. She's built the walls around her heart so tall and strong she's even earned the nickname Tempest the Terminator. Don't let her fool you though. I knew right away when she met Dixon (a.k.a. accidentally groped his chest lol) that she was going to fall head over heels for the handsome cowboy. He's definitely a charmer and I loved how he cared for not only her, but also her son. Dixon is confident, handsome, a gentleman, and a cowboy... How could she possibly resist?!! Their chemistry is great and their easy banter kept a smile on my face. The entire setting of the story with the fair and the competition is just such fun and I was completely immersed in the story. The magical realism is always part of the wonderful charm from this author and I love that she included my favorite mystical character Granny Tinker. It just wouldn't be the same without her meddling! So if you're like me and handsome cowboys, witty banter, mischievous old ladies, and a bit of magic are your thing then this book is for you!
