Welcome to Clean Slate Ranch: home of tight jeans, cowboy boots, and rough trails. For some men, it’s a fantasy come true.
Mack Garrett loves the rolling hills surrounding his Northern California dude ranch. Leading vacationers on horse trails with his two best friends is enough—romance is definitely not in the cards. When a sexy tourist shows up at Clean Slate, he’s as far from Mack’s type as can be. So why is the handsome city slicker so far under his skin in less than a day?
Roughing it in the middle of nowhere isn’t anywhere near Wes Bentley’s idea of fun. Then he lays eyes on the gruffest, hottest papa bear he’s ever seen. But Mack is as hard to pin down as he looks—distant, sharp-tongued, and in desperate need of a shave. Until a campout gone wrong strands both men in the mountains with nothing to do but get to know each other.
Mack intends to keep his closely guarded heart out of Wes’s very talented hands. But for a seven-day cowboy, Wes is packing some long-term possibility. The cold country air can do wonders for bringing bodies together—but it will take more than that to bridge the distance between two men whose lives are worlds apart.
Wild Trail is a beautiful and emotional love story of a cowboy and an aspiring actor. Their love story is beautiful, emotional and completely heart warming.
I really loved the characters and the premise of the story. I was intrigued by the cowboy aspect of the book and I liked the way the author brought about a lot of freshness to the story. Mack and Wes are two characters who are completely different yet they really make sense together. I loved that their relationship was not all sunshine and rainbows but rather they had to overcome their own issues like a any couple. I especially loved how they both were open with each and ready to communicate rather than assume things. The bit of action and suspense added a different dimension to the story and made it a really entertaining read. I loved all the secondary characters and I can’t wait to read more about them all.
If you love a book with cowboys, horses, suspense, action, amazing sexual chemistry, a beautiful love story and a bunch of completely endearing secondary characters, then this is your book. Recommended.
