When I mention that it's not strictly a romance, that's not a criticism per sé, but that things come together in the tale for the whole family; everything comes full circle and whole again, and people heal. It's what the series needed, but technically, this reads more as a family saga than a romance, though there is a romantic element to it.
The romantic element? Low key, low passion and yet quite believable, because it felt that after years of a high octane life, Justin needed the quiet and calm he found with Sam. I'd have liked for them to have had more than just about 25% of the tale together, but like I say, it sort of suited them.
As for the guy who's going to get his own tale in book 4? I think we've met him here, and possibly also met his co-lead. If I'm not mistaken, that'll be a case of a guy outside the dictates of The Law meeting a guy who works wholly within, and to uphold, the law. Sounds like a great tale.

After such an epic ending in book 2 there will be a lot of readers out there glad the author pushed this forward and delivered it ahead of schedule – I am one such person!
Justin and Adam had both been missing for over a decade and presumed dead by most of their family. They weren’t in fact dead but both boys went on to very different lives and wouldn’t return home for many years. In The Rancher’s Son we saw Adam find his way back to the ranch albeit without any memories of who he was. A Cowboy’s Home sees Justin finally coming back to Crooked Tree Ranch but his homecoming is very different – he remembers it all, every single minute and he is layered down in grief, guilt and thoughts of revenge.
Sam, the chef from the ranch restaurant, is the person that finds Justin who is hiding and close to death. Sam knows the history of Justin and Adam but didn’t know either of the men “before” so he doesn’t have the same sort of feelings that the family has when they learn the missing son is home. Instead Sam feels protective of the man he found at death’s door and he becomes a sort of buffer between Justin and the rest of the world.
Justin was lied to and I guess forced into the life he has led for over a decade. Ultimately it may have been for a good cause but he was just a child, he was injured, scared and thought his best friend was dead and the man who claimed to care abused him in the worst way. By returning home the way he does he has placed everyone around him in danger. He’s pulled in so many ways – he knows he needs to leave to keep his loved ones safe, he still hasn’t finished getting his revenge but being around his family for the first time in years is soothing. Sam is an added bonus – his knight in shining armour and someone he would have in an instant in a different life.
I wouldn’t call this a romance story – there is a little bit towards the end but this is definitely more about healing Justin both from the past and the present. It’s also about Sam healing and leaving behind the ghosts of his childhood, he has finally found a family and a place he belongs.
Sam, the chef of the restaurant on the Crooked Tree Ranch, needs to clear his head after another bad run in with his family. Usually one for laughing and joking he needs to get out of this funk his family have put him in. Taking off on his bike across the ranch he stumbles across a rundown cabin but only he finds it is not empty.
Justin has finally found his way home, shot and injured after his last ‘duty’ is completed. He can think of nowhere else he should go but home to die on his beloved family ranch, Crooked Tree. However he is not alone for long when a lone biker finds him hiding out. Although Justin threatens the man to leave him alone, he doesn’t realise he has come across the one man who is stubborn to find out who he is and what he is doing here. He also wants to help Justin and no matter how threatening Justin is, this man just keeps on pushing him.
Little by little Sam earns Justin’s tiny bit of trust, but when Justin’s injuries are getting worse, Sam has no option but to get help from the ranch. When the family arrives on the doorstep, Justin is determined he must leave to keep them safe.
I loved Sam in this book. In previous books he came across as a bit flighty for me and I didn’t really gel with him. But now we get to understand his issues he has been through and seeing the more nurturing side of him, he was easy to fall for. I loved how he was able to gain Justin’s trust and he was the right man to deal with Justin. Little by little, Sam worms himself under Justin’s skin and holds steadfast to the wannabe runaway.
The romance was slow in coming in this one and the part of Justin and Sam holed up in the cabin went on a little too long for my liking. Also the number of times Justin said he was going to leave just did my head in. Eventually though progress is made in the initial healing of the broken family and we ended with Justin more or less open to be at peace again within the comfort of home and Sam’s arms.
I think there is a lot more to be come from this storyline, after all twelve years away is a lot to make up for all that had gone on with Adam and Justin. An enjoyable addition to the series. Four stars.
