Four men live at the Crow Creek ranch. Two of them, Ash and Oak, are recently married. One of the men, Jess, is a former rodeo bronc rider with a rep and a lot of mileage. The fourth one, Luc, has a fanboy crush on Jess.
What could go wrong does go wrong. Jess and Ash have a history, dating from their time together in Iraq. Luc and Oak, jealous and tormented, make the kinds of bad choices that lead to jealous rage and soul-searing hurt.
Four men vie to hold onto the things they hold dear. Riding for the time. Riding for the glory. And it takes only one misstep to disqualify any one of them from the competition, from a future … and from love.

It hurt my heart to read this book, especially because I'm so in love with Ash and Oak as a couple. So much happens to this couple throughout the course of the novel, and while I wasn't happy with the character's actions...the writing is superb, as always. Nya is a joy to read, even if I wanted to smack Ash upside the back of his head for his stupidity
Nya Rawlyns delivers, as always, a complex and engaging story that takes place in intriguing and well-described surroundings. She refuses to allow her characters to disguise their struggles, but instead undresses them layer by layer. She tosses the Stetson of pride onto a rack, pops the snaps of the Western shirt of guilt, unfastens the tarnished buckle of ego's belt, wrenches off the pointy-toed boots of stubbornness, drops the jeans of insecurity until all four men are not simply naked, but exposed. To the reader, to each other, and most difficult of all, to themselves. It's impossible to read her books without giving the characters an iron-clad lease on sections of your heart. These men are no exception.
