Jack is focusing on building an equine therapy school for children with special needs and works hard alongside his normal horse training and breeding program. He and Riley have settled into a softer, quieter kind of family life, but that doesn’t stop them using the barn with the door to the fullest!

But the lull comes before the storm.

Riley and his new assistant travel to Laredo, and across the border into Neuvo Laredo as part of an exploratory team and things very quickly go to hell. Riley is caught in some serious Cartel problems and suddenly everything Jack holds dear is threatened.

Life carries on at the Double D ranch and in the Campbell-Hayes household, and we are treated to plenty of glimpses of Max, Hayley and the twins in this instalment.

In fact, there’s a lot going on in this story with many of the various storylines continuing. Plus there’s a touch of the soap opera style drama that featured earlier in the series.

Liam has to build up the courage so he can take the stand in his upcoming court case against his former employer and abuser. It’s great that he has the support of Marcus and all the other guys on the ranch.

Jack has his sights set on an equine therapy school and he wants to help the other lads in the abuse case.  Vaughan and Darren provide another love interest storyline as they sort out their relationship. Sean and Eden’s relationship also needs a helping hand from Riley and Jack.

Issues at work cause tension and drama for Riley, and subsequently for Jack. Thankfully the danger is resolved swiftly, but the incident once again reminds us how much the guys are in love and can’t even contemplate a future without the other. Jack provides Riley with comfort and support when he returns home. 

Jack and Riley remain a favourite couple of mine. It’s good to visit them and see them deal with relationship, family, and other issues. They come out stronger and more in love, if that’s possible, and their characters are more mature and considerate of others.

Sean Crisden narrates this story and series so well. His voice is easy to listen to and his portrayal of each character—male and female—is superb and consistent.
