Product Description

She's his best friend's sister, but he's ready to break all the rules...

Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.

Jonah is happy to help Little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with his best friend Zach’s wedding on the horizon, and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan. And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off. Jonah must resist or lose the only true family he’s ever known.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another good read 19 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
** Copy provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

Ok… This book had me crying at one point when Celia went to speak to her family lying everything bare.

This can be read as a stand alone story, but is better if read within the series to better understand some of the other characters mentioned and how they have changed.

CeeCee is a very strong woman, she just doesn't see how strong of a person she is. She still wants approval from her brother and family. It is both her almost sister-in-law and Jonah that shows her the person she is underneath where she finds that not only is she strong, but she's pretty.

Jonah has been alone for too long distancing people unconsciously and it is his bossy assistant and CeeCee that show him what he really wants. He too finds a few things out about himself.

I only wish that they had sorted themselves out sooner and we had more sizzle between the two and that we had more than just the idea that they had been intimate. Something the author seems to shy away from.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first Bliss book, great read! 15 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Now I have never read any Bliss books before, nor I have I read any of Roxanne Snopek's book before so I went in to this book with no prior experience!

Resisting the Rancher is a Three River Ranch novel, the story centres around the Gamble family, specifically Celia "CeeCee" Gamble.

Returning the heart of her family after training to be a Veterinarian, Celia Gamble sets up her new business at the family ranch and begins her new life with her family and old friends, including her brother's best friend Jonah Clarke.

Celia has always had a soft spot for Jonah but he has always seen her as his best friends little sister but when a emaciated dog is found near his office, he calls the vet out and gets a shock - Celia has grown up!

But unbeknownst to him Celia has problems, big problems! She is being blackmailed and if it becomes common knowledge it could destroy everything she has worked so hard on.

The story progresses with Celia opening up to Jonah about the blackmail, it also sees her blossom as she gets ready for her brother's wedding and Jonah starts to see her in a whole new light.

Celia and Jonah fight against their mutual attraction, he helps her when her past comes back to bite her in the ass in the form of the blackmailer who has a whole pack of screws loose.

This is a lovely book, as I mentioned I have not read any of these books before after reading this book I would like to discover more of this series.

I award Resisiting The Rancher 4 out 5 stars, a lovely read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy cowboy in a Stetson? Would be rude not to 14 April 2014
By Nicola_1202 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
So when I was offered the chance to read Resisting the Rancher, I jumped around room with glee because I have to confess that Three River Ranch is my favourite series in Entangled's Bliss line. I am a complete sucker for a man in a Stetson and as Lutherton is home to many, it is one of my favourite places to visit. This time the focus is on Celia Gamble and Jonah Clarke and whilst their story could be read as a standalone, personally I would recommend reading the series, or at least His Reluctant Rancher, as the characters are related and the story intertwines. It will mean much more.

I had reservations over Celia; Zach's younger sister hasn't been that endearing previously. Her attitude left a little to be desired, but in her defence she's faced huge personal tragedy. She's a stubborn, independent tomboy and when she returns home to open her vetinary practice, her past surfaces to stir some trouble and she turns to Jonah; lawyer, workaholic and her brothers best-friend. He's been no stranger in the previous books but we have only scratched his surface. As we have Celia's.

I loved them together. Whilst their chemistry wasn't explosive, this was absolutely not a bad thing. They've known each other their entire lives; they've irritated the hell out of one another, protected one another and have a raft of happy and sad memories to go with it. They're realistic and this is why their chemistry was perfect yet they were so different to any of our previous couples. It was heartfelt and humorous and Jonah became exactly the man I was hoping for during the second half of the book whilst Celia finally redeemed herself to me.

Roxanne Snopek has a gift of bringing us completely loveable, frustrating, feisty, funny characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Series 14 April 2014
By Melissa C. Maxwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Received and ARC for an unbiased review of the novel.

I love Mrs. Snopek's books and this is my favorite of the whole series. I have a thing for men who hard workers and work with their hands and has intelligence to boot and Jonah is that man. The lead female heroine is just so endearing and likeable but has an inner strength that allowed her to deal with all the men in the series and thrive. I love the development of the story and felt that the heart knows what the heart wants and in the end its is better to let the heart win sometimes. I love seeing the characters from the prior books in the story and catching up with their lives as well. I loved this story ad it was an excellent conclusion to the first bliss series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific story! 15 April 2014
By Alleycat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed Celia and Jonah's story. Always love an older brother's best friend trope. So much fun! I've read a couple of books by Roxanne Snopek, so I'm not at all surprised that I have fallen in love with yet another one of her stories. The author consistently provides the reader with great, likeable characters, a terrific storyline, and fantastic writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!!! Don't miss this one! 15 April 2014
By Joe Cool Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this story! It had that big-brothers-best-friend-crush, a mystery, a whacko, and a woman with the best intentions that just can't seem to come out on top. That doesn't even cover the all-grown-up version of her crush!

CeeCee is a girl that just wanted to fit in with the big boys and prove herself. Now that she has grown up and made a HUGE mistake she just want to start over in her hometown. Jonah has always seen CeeCee, but never considered anything like a relationship since he is Zach's best friend. He swore to help watch out for her growing up.

However, as Des makes CeeCee over piece by piece, he can no longer deny that she is all woman! The back and forth between the two is real, and hard, and different. They both have very valid reasons that makes them think they can't be together.

This story was very sweet and had so many characters that just came alive. This was not the first book in the series, but it is a stand alone story. You can bet that I will be after the rest of the books now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this story 14 April 2014
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Resisting the Rancher Roxanne Snopek's fourth book in the Three River Ranch Series is the story of Celi Gamble the new country veterinarian who has a misunderstanding from her past coming back to cause her problems. Celia turns to her brother's friend and long time crush Jonah Clarke for help.

I love Roxanne Snopek's Three River Ranch Series. This was another great story. The story of the forbidden love from the past finding their way to love in the future.

I love that both Celia and Jonah have lost themselves and they are trying to find there way back . Celia is trying to find where she belong when she returns home. Celia has always been the little sister and now she wants to show everyone she is a strong woman. Jonah has gone through something being a lawyer and with his family. He always been Celia protector but now he notice for the woman she is turning into and he is not sure how to handle that. They both go through their own transformation leading them to find out what they really want.

I love how this book intertwines with the all the character from the previous books.

I had a hard time putting this book down. I love the way the story is told. Another great book for Roxanne Snopek.
