Bookaholics not so anonymous 5 plus stars – The Rancher's Son is one of my top reads this year. Five-plus stars. ♥
Ethan and Adam's story flowed easily, but it was never rushed, allowing the anticipation to build as the memories trickled in and then would stall and then would hit at unexpected moments.
Rainbow Book Reviews – I can’t wait for the next volume
If you like family drama, mystery, and the gradual discovery of the truth, if two men reunited after a long separation and loss of memory sound exciting, and if you’re looking for a suspenseful read with complicated characters, stressful family relationships, and plenty of twists and turns, then you will probably like this novel. I can’t wait for the next volume – that was a clever twist right there at the end, RJ. Way to maintain the suspense!
Urban Smoothie Read – I need Book 3 now!
By this point I'm very intrigued with the mystery of Adam and Justin. What happened to the boys 12 years ago? Why did someone tried to kill Adam?
Multitasking Momma's 4/5 – a truly romantic read
Entertainment wise, this is a truly romantic read and does tell the enduring love Ethan has for Adam and vice versa. Compared to the first book, I think I enjoyed this more. I especially liked how the author walked the reader through Adam's recovery, giving us a hint of how he felt and thought when something strange is familiar and what he thought familiar was not truly that. The story developed very well, for Adam's story, but for the rest, well not so well. What I do know is I need that third book now so I can get closure for this mystery is getting deeper and I need the answers.
The Blogger Girls 4.5/5 – probably my favorite R.J. Scott to date. I loved it from beginning to end
This story and mystery grabbed me from the beginning, and I could not put it down. I needed to know what happened to Adam and Justin; I needed Adam to remember Ethan; and I needed it now. It was a great telling, it was full of tension and intrigue, but it wasn’t fast.
Bella's Blog 5/5 – R.J.Scott has done such amazing job writing this very touching story
I highly recommend that you read this fabulous series, because you won't be disappointed.
Wicked Reads 5/5 – I really enjoyed this book, it was so good I didn’t want to put it down, I had to keep reading.
The Rancher's Son is an engaging story and the mystery of why these boys disappeared keeps the book moving at a good pace.
Xtreme Delusions 5/5 – I wish I could give this one more than 5 stars
This story hit every one of my buttons. There’s suspense, mystery and it evoked all of my emotions. At times I had tears running down my face but I also smiled a lot.
Everything about this book drew me in, and it is written so the flow is smooth and almost hypnotic to keep you buried deep in the story. The characters have depth, and I loved seeing the returning characters from the first book of the series.
Archeolibrarian 5/5 – Emotional, exciting, slow-burner, this book has it all.
You are not left wanting anything more from these two. HOWEVER, you are left wanting a whole lot more of the full story as it promises to be a good one, with nail-biting twists and intrigue aplenty.
Cathy Writes Romance – I do not feel you have to read them in order though both books are excellent so why not!
If you like ranchers, policeman, angsty stories, romance, surprising twists and some sensual man-sex you will love this book!
Wicked Faerie's Tales and Reviews 4/5 – The romance is a slow burn second chance romance between Ethan and Adam.
The pacing was perfect from the first paragraph, the characters worked well together, and the story was engaging and kept you coming back for more.
Lustful Literature 4.5/5 – From the beginning to the very end I was captivated by the storyline
