3 stars out of 5
3 stars – I liked it

Cooper Woodlock can’t seem to stay out of trouble. After a game of high stakes poker he finds himself in extreme debt to a bad group of people. Luckily, the men of Stallion Ridge are determined to keep him safe, especially Deputy Gunner. 

This was another great story set in Stallion Ridge. Gunnar and Cooper were a cute and steamy couple. I wasn’t expecting their first time to be a threesome but man was it hot. Cooper was a proud man who was determined to make a better life for his daughter. I liked him but he was a little too prideful at times, especially when people are just trying to help him. 

Gunner was a surprise. He was protective, kind, and very dominating. I loved how he was always trying to take care of Cooper and Marybelle. I wasn’t expecting the reveal of what kind of paranormal he was though. These two were a great couple and they will be great parents to Marybelle. 

I wasn’t expecting the cliffhanger at the end of this book so I am glad I am coming to this series late. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the next one now. Overall, this was another great couple and another great weird western story.
