Disaster at Roosevelt, Ranch Elise Faber

Disaster at Roosevelt, Ranch Elise Faber

Disaster at Roosevelt Ranch by [Faber, Elise]

Genre:  Women’s Fiction, Romance

I’ve enjoyed several of Elise’ novels now, mainly fantasy ones so this was a step in the dark for me. Would I like a contemporary romance by her? The answer – yes 🙂

Poor Kelly, life dealt her a rotten hand, she works so hard and everything seems to go wrong for her. A drunk for a mother, who sold her horse and spent her university loan money, so she couldn’t go, yet she still pulled herself up. she took a place on a ranch, working with the horses with the option to buy one, then its sold and the new owner defaults on that too….She still goes there though, works for free as she loves the horses, especially Stella – the one she wanted to buy.

Rex, the new owner, didn’t just take away her horse though when he fired her, he took away her self respect, and worse, she’s just found she’s pregnant! Goes up to the ranch to tell him, only to find Rex has decamped for new pastures, and probably new ladies… leaving his twin Justin to pick up the mess as always.
Its the role they play, Rex is their father’s golden boy, always full of the next new idea, the next way he’s going to make a fortune, leaving Justin to clean up whatever went wrong on the last venture and pay off any leftover ladies, keeping the family scandal free.

When Justin sees Kelly though there’s a real spark between them, and if Rex was like a candle flame for her, Justin is a huge bonfire…
There’s a small issue though – the baby. Justin is a doctor, done a stint in the Forces and has a real protective streak. Things happen to Kelly that really brings that out and they get closer – and closer.

Of course it all comes to a head, vicious words said earlier are thrown around when Rex and his dad come to the ranch, and poor Kelly – I so felt for her.
I did think though that she was a little too quick to forgive. I’d be demanding more answers, why that was said, and taken much longer to get over it.
Words can be really damaging – maybe she’s just so used to them from her past they roll off? Dunno, but I so wanted to give her a hug.

There were some good secondary characters too – Kelly’s sister, owner of the cafe where Kelly works, Henry, I so loved him. Esther – I think that was her name – the old lady who had tea with lemon and a sandwich daily. I so want to be her when I’m old (OK, older…) and of course the horses 😉
Well, I love them, so its a bonus to find them in a story.

Its a fun read, a little superficial and light but a sweet escape with a HEA

Stars: Four.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
