Nothing Sweeter by Laura Drake  A Love as Wild as the West...

Aubrey Madison is starting over. Leaving Los Angeles and everything behind except the scars of her ruined past, Bree sets out for cowboy country. Now she has a new home, a new job—and a new worry: the ruggedly sexy rancher who makes her long for things she shouldn't...

Rough and tumble cattleman Max Jameson has broken wild stallions and faced angry bulls. Yet the redheaded city cupcake who turned up at the High Heather Ranch might be his undoing. Bree has a plan to rescue the ranch from foreclosure that's just crazy enough to work. But will Max gamble his future on a beautiful stranger?

"Touchingly real. Tender and timely. Laura Drake creates characters you know you've met and you have to root for." -Pamela Morsi, USA Todaybestselling author on The Sweet Spot

"An emotionally packed story that will pull all the heartstrings." -Christie Craig, New York Times bestselling author on The Sweet Spot

Let me just say the whole time I was reading this I heard the young Dean Martin as Max, Matt Bomer as Wyatt and Reba Mc Entire as Bree.  I know crazy, Right?
     Running from her past Aubrey (Bree) Madison (Tanner) is released from the Federal Prison in California and ends up in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  She is doing something she forgot she loved so much, working with horses on High Heather Ranch for the Jameson Brothers.
     They are the exact opposite.  Max is like a grizzly bear that has been poked.  Where Wyatt is like a Teddy bear all soft edges and cuddly.  They look nothing alike either.  Both handsome as sin in their own right, yet Max is tall, dark, hard straight edges.  Where Wyatt is tall, light blonde hair, soft smooth edges.  Max looks and acts like a rancher where Wyatt just seems to dress the part.  Don’t get me wrong Wyatt knows how to do it all and does by all mean does it well.  But not full time. 
     You see the boy’s dad dies a week before Bree arrives at the ranch to be their “groom.”  At which time they were just finding out they were just a matter of time before losing the place.  They had to make plans on how to save it.  Bree helps with that.  So let’s see here we have a “Little Lady” who served time for a crime she didn’t commit by the way and got her throat slashed for her troubles.  Then, you have two brothers not only dealing with the death of their mean ass father, they are dealing with one living the gay lifestyle and the other not able to handle it.   All this while trying to save the ranch.
     Totally enjoyed this trio of main characters.  Tia Nita was a feisty one.  I know you will love this flash back to the simple lifestyle but is hooked up to Wi-Fi.  Not even Max could out run progress not even on his own ranch everything has to change.  Max loved to quotes and this one stood out but this one Aubrey remembers, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”  For this story this was so true as well as a lot of people’s lives.  Provided by netgalley.
