MIDNIGHT WRANGLER                            CAT JOHNSON

Midnight Wrangler by Cat JohnsonOne Lonely Widower…

Rohn Lerner is a successful Oklahoma rancher. He’s old enough to know what he likes, and still young enough to enjoy it. But losing his wife five years ago wore him thin. He’s not ready to date, but he needs someone to share a meal with as badly as someone to warm his bed.

One Woman with a Secret…

Bonnie Martin fled her Oklahoma home years ago, leaving behind her abusive father, and Rohn, the lost love she never forgot. Now she’s back to settle her father’s estate, but she has no idea that she’s about to bump into Rohn or that they’ll fall for each other all over again.

One Night That Changes Everything…

     There is always something special about the first crush you have.  No matter who you fall madly in love with after or even marry that first crush is always there.  You can even look at it logically telling yourself it would have never happened… I’m not their type, their lifestyle ended up being totally different than mine, and we didn’t have the same views and would have killed each other.  That crush is still there.
     Which is totally the case for Rohn Lerner.  He was outside of five years that his wife of 15+ years died of cancer.  He really started to get lonely and taking stalk of his life to see all the people he loved and who have left him including his first real love and first sex partner Bonnie (Blue) Martin.  Who up and left him at the end of summer to go to college without saying goodbye.  Forever making him insecure as to what he did.
     He and Bonnie Blue didn’t meet until a couple of days before they were to graduate at their Senior Prom.  He was there with a date he had been roped into taking when he met Bonnie at the snack table.  Her hour was up and she was getting ready to go into the dance.  They chatted for a bit he was surprised he had never noticed her before.  What he noticed that night was she did not follow the trend she stood out as far as dresses went and her style of hair and makeup.  She owned her style and looked beautiful.  That night he so wanted to dance with her but because he brought a date he didn’t.  His friend that night told him her father was looking for summer help.
     The next afternoon Rohn showed up at Bonnie’s doorstep looking to talk to her dad.   He was still out in the fields working.  Bonnie not really caring for her mean grouchy father had no clue he was hiring.  So, she asked him into the kitchen where her mom was cooking.  She asks her mom who says yes and tells Rohn to have a seat.  Bonnie serves tea then her mom starts asking about the prom.  Bonnie wanted to die.  Her dad came in and hired him.
     From here the story goes from present to the past between Bonnie and Rohn and back again throughout.  You see Bonnie just found out her much hated father had passed away and she has been left his farm. Yay Her!  Not!  She must go back to the town she fled 25 years ago.  Leaving behind all her worst memories and greatest memories as well.  Not to mention the love of her young life and the guy she gave herself to for the first time as well as her heart.  Now if she could just avoid him during her painful walk down memory lane as she weeds through what was left behind of her father’s life.  Hopefully she can lay the ghost of her father to rest and the fear he instilled in her and move on…
     This was not the first in the series that I have read.  I wasn’t disappointed that was for sure.  The relationship Rohn has with his ranch hands is a nice blend of humor and affection.  The relationship he had and has with Bonnie becomes even more complicated and the ranch hands Tyler, Justin and Colton make it even more interesting.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by Netgalley.com.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
