I absolutely loved this story! The entire story is told from Nathan’s point of view, and he’s an amazingly interesting character. I couldn’t get enough of him. His wit and sarcasm got me every time. Ryan is such a sweetheart, and he does a wonderful job taking care of Nathan after his riding accident. I loved the slow build-up to their relationship and enjoyed seeing them out on dates even when neither was admitting they were dating. The steamy sex scenes were so perfect that even their kisses were hot! The angst was centered on Ryan’s nomad life and Nathan’s bad history with relationships. I was on edge waiting to see how they would resolve these issues. The ending was so realistic and so beautiful that I was crying happy tears.
Although this is the 6th book in the series, it’s not necessary to read the other books first. You get visits from prior characters, but you don’t need their background to understand anything happening here.

After years of saving every penny, Nathan has finally managed to buy the horse of his dreams. He’s looking forward to a summer of exploring the Colorado mountain trails above Tucker Springs with Tsarina. But on their very first ride, a motorcyclist makes a wrong turn, scaring Tsarina into bolting and leaving Nathan with a broken leg, a broken hand, and a ruined summer.
Ryan is a loner and a nomad, content with working odd jobs before moving on to the next town. Feeling guilty for causing the accident that leaves Nathan in two casts, Ryan offers to keep Tsarina exercised until Nathan heals.
Despite their bad start, Nathan and Ryan soon become friends . . . and then much more. But with a couple of nasty breakups in his past, Nathan doesn’t want feelings getting involved—especially knowing that Ryan will never settle down. But since when do feelings ever listen to reason?
