Book Review - Bad Boy Rancher by Karen Rock + Giveaway

Photo Source - Amazon
Justin Cade is in a downward spiral after his twin died from his drug addiction. He lives life dangerously and is addicted to the thrill. Army chaplain Brielle Thomspon is trying to get a hold of her PTSD and heal from the horrors of Afghanistan. Brielle is trying to avoid the wonders and the heartache of life by spending most of her time in solitude.  While the last thing the two of them want to deal with each other and their own demons, could be the very thing they need?

The heartwarming novel was classified as a clean romance which had romance without the overly steamy parts. I found the main characters to be enjoyable and realistic. Both Justin and Brielle are flawed and want each other but try to overcome the obstacles in their "relationship". I enjoyed that this novel didn't have the type of drama where one person pushes the other person away but rants about why that person doesn't come back to them. A very enjoyable read for anyone who loves romance novels or a fan of this series.

Renegade rancher Justin Cade was exactly the kind of man former army chaplain Brielle Thompson needed to avoid after escaping the horrors of Afghanistan with an honorable discharge—and PTSD.
