    4 starsI've read some other books by these authors and honestly I hated them I'm not sure why I picked this one up but I was pleasantly surprised Although the book made me feel at times it was an old western book it was still decently done

    Click on Picture to Enter Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned romance you know the kind where the standoffish wealthy rancher can’t help but notice the “full figured” and totally capable woman Of course she also notices him but between the two of them they are too damaged emotionally to actually take the plunge and risk finding true love The Reluctant Rancher by that dynamic duo Patricia Mason and Joann Baker is a true romantic’s dream Luke and Mary strike a deal so Mary can earn some much needed money to start a business Their interaction is often like oil and water but they are drawn to each other like moths to a flame Leave it to Luke’s wise old grandpa to help fan that flame because isn’t finding true love what life is all about?These two authors have created a fun light romance that feels good It’s so nice to have two “regular” characters flawed less than perfect alone but together have a chance to be something amazing For me it wasn’t so much the grand finale at the end; it was the fun on my reading journey to that last page that makes this such a highly recommended book Who doesn’t like a feisty heroine and a rugged hero with insecurities that need to be kissed out of them?I received a review copy as part of The Reluctant Rancher Book Tour and Giveaway now at Tome Tender through December 31st

    This was way be then I ever expected for sure I thought that Luke who started out being portrayed as a hard nosed uncaring sob is really a scared little boy who betrayed those he loved As for Mary she was a spunky spit fire from the start Yet with a huge complex body image weight issue She too has been betrayed bullied about this by those around her For her putting on a happy face to his scowl seems to work for them until they start to realize just how lonely they are for a true love a meaningful relationship They live in Fiddler's Creek where everyone knows each other helps each other The town is close when Mary helps Luke become a part of that all their lives change Joseph Luke's grandpa the man that raised him is a sweetheart a joy to see how he guides all this to come about with either of them knowing This book was a uick read something along the lines of what 180ish pages I actually paid for this book for once so my review is harder so you know I liked it

    45 stars I received the book in exchange for an honest reviewThank you thank you thank you to all you amazing authors who have realized that a plus sized female MC does not a bad MC make I love all these fantastic books that have all these fabulous woman that are bigger than a toothpick and owning it What give you the idea that I myself am plus sized heeheeMary is a nurse She loves looking after people but in order for her to do that she needs a loan And unfortunately for her and fortunately for us she cannot get one from the bank and the only place left to go is the rude reclusive red hot rancher Luke Tanner Luke is the richest man in Fiddler's Creek and tired of feeling like the local ATM but when beautiful Mary knocks on his door he sees a mutually beneficial opportunity Striking a deal with this curvy lady leads to Mary moving onto the ranch for 2 months to look after his grandfatherYou know how you see those not so perfect looking people you know us every day folks that look so happy together You know how you hardly ever come across a book where these people find each other Search no further Luke is rugged He is rude He is really not handsome But to Mary he is perfect And together they make the perfect coupleI loved their instant chemistry Not love no insta love nonsense for this reluctant rancher but chemistry It was well written and easy to read It had me reaching for my ice water on than one occasion Both the MC's and all the supporting characters were really fun especially Luke's grandfather Joseph I always love reading about spunky old men that always know better then their younger counterpartsIt was a fun fast read that sometimes felt like it jumped at places but I think this just lent a authentic feel to Luke and Mary's emotions

    45 stars From ImportuningTo LoveThe Reluctant Rancher is a loving story written especially for true romance readersThe authors Joann Baker Patricia Mason outlined the perfect scene where the two main characters meet are forced into cohabitation and in doing so discover true love This enjoyable story is set in a small town in the state of Wyoming on a ranch which always makes for a sensual read But the most gratifying thing about reading this book is the fact that the main characters are not Barbie and Ken clonesYeahMary Carter and Luke Tanner needed something from one another Mary needed money to keep her nursing service open and Luke needs help with his elderly grandfather Un admittedly what these to really need is companionship and someone to staid off those lonely nights Mary is not the typical young waif beauty that can have any man in town No she’s a real woman with a full figured body And like most women she suffers from the negative emotional diffident that occurs from delusive female images portrayed in mass media Similarly Luke is not your run of the mill suave and handsome millionaire His looks and debonair ways has yet to draw hoards of women to his bed nor caused others to want something from him than a handout The fact that these two characters carry realistic emotional baggage made this romance hard to put downFrom their first meeting a knowing awareness arises within them but neither Mary nor Luke believes themselves worthy of true love So the two allow fear to prevent them from seeking a relationship with one another The authors entwined the lives and insecurities of these characters providing the readers with clear insight into their developing love Just what you want in a romance so don’t miss out on this passionate love storyreviewed by Lourdes
