Review: The Rancher and The Vet by Julie Benson

The Rancher and the Vet (Fatherhood)

May Contain Spoilers


My favorite trope!  Second chance at love!  The heroine is a vet, which also piqued my interest.  I think the title is misleading, though, because the hero, Reed, runs an electronics company, and he is not a rancher.  Instead, he’s filling in for his brother, Colt, who has been deployed overseas.  Since Colt’s mother-in-law broke her hip, she can’t look after his 14 year old daughter, so it’s Reed to the rescue.  Only Reed doesn’t want to be a hero, and he certainly doesn’t want to be responsible for Jess.  He agrees to look after Jess, but only until other arrangements can be made.
