    1. Must Love Horses is book two in the Lazy S Ranch series by Vicki Tharp. When I read the first book in this series, Cowgirl, Unexpectedly, Vicki was a new to me author and I fell in love. There was no question I would continue the series but oh my gosh, I was not prepared for this book!We first met Mac’s friend whom she served and deployed with in the first book, Bryan “Boomer” Wilcox. It’s been two years since the ending of the first book. Mac and Hank are now married and Hank’s daught [...]

    2. Review also found at kristineandterri/I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!This is the second in a series and I had not read the first however it can be read as a stand alone. My only hesitation is that I did not have a love affair with this story so not sure if reading the first story may have improved my view. I don't think so but you never know.This story seemed to have an identity crisis to me. I will start with [...]

    3. Received in a giveawayThis book was ok, I dont I expected something just a little different, there was so much drama and so much angst

    4. After falling in love with the characters from Cowgirl, Unexpectedly, I was impatiently awaiting Boomer's story. Not only did I get my hands on an advance copy, I was so certain I would love this book that I also preordered it months ago. As I anticipated, Ms. Tharp delivered and then proceeded to make my expectations seem like a gentle rain shower in comparison to the hurricane of her talent in this book. I have a soft spot for cowboys, military men and damaged but tender-hearted heroes, and Bo [...]

    5. Have you ever wondered what you would do when facing a painful situation there seemed to be no way out of? What about knowing what to do when you meet someone you could love but know is all wrong for you? And, how do you rebuild your name or self when it seems to have been destroyed? Well…those and other questions face Bryan “Boomer” Wilcox and Sidney Teller in this wonderful story of strength, endurance and perseverance. Boomer has a feeling Sidney is going to be trouble when he lays on h [...]

    6. **I received an ARC of this book courtesy of Net Galley and the publisher. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and given freely**I really loved Cowgirl, Unexpectedly so I was super excited to get an ARC of this, the second book in the same series. Especially because I already fell in love with Boomer in the first story.Sidney is the perfect choice for Boomer aka Bryan. (Note: in the blurb about the book her name is spelled Sydney, in the ARC I have it’s Sidney. Since I don’t kno [...]

    7. Lazy S Ranch. Bryan “Boomer” Wilcox (prosthetic leg, retired USMC; Iraq x 2, demolition expert) & Mackenzie “Mac” Nash (retired military) were quite amazed with the skills/expertise Sydney Teller (Irish, horse trainer) had.The 2 knew of what happened in her past to Clive Teller (husband/father), & Marta (wife/mother).At breakfast Sydney met Lottie (wife, ranch owner), Dale (husband, ranch owner), & Santos (ranch hand).Sheriff Elmore St. John wanted them all to know all about [...]

    8. I was completely entertained from beginning to end! Knowing there’d be horses in the book is what drew me to it, so of course they were my favorite part. Sydney’s horse, Eli, has such a sweet and fun personality and is so smart! I loved how Sydney interacted with him and with the wild horses she works with and trains. Eli warmed my heart with the way he was absolutely determined to be as close to Sydney as he could get, even if he had to be mischievous to do so, and how he would bend down fo [...]

    9. Suspense and RomanceOverall a great story of love conquering demons from the past. Bryan lost a leg and most of himself in the military and relies on alcohol and pain killers to get him through the day. Sidney is a horse trainer trying to get out from under her parents terrible reputation. When out looking for their stolen horses they are kidnapped and held hostage by a gang of drug runners. I thought that dragged on longer than necessary but they are rescued. Bryan goes into rehab and refuses t [...]

    10. I loved this book. This is definitely more than just a romance novel! Sydney is struggling to make a name for herself after the public humiliation of her parents practices at their horse training business. Bryan aka Boomer is a wounded warrior who is battling alcohol and pain killer addiction. The two meeting was written in the stars. They come together and help each to overcome their individual problems and also help capture diamond smuggling operatives. If you like romance with a little suspen [...]

    11. Must Love Horses (Lazy S Ranch) by Vicki TharpUndeniably one of the best books that I've read in a long time . Sydney and Bryan, so very real, with very real things they have overcome in their lives. I absolutely love that she was a horse trainer. That takes a special kind of person, Bryan, a Marine, what a pair In the very best way, they find the life that everyone is searching for in their own life. Bravo Vicki Tharp!!!!! I would love to read more of your special kind of magic.

    12. I was asked by the author for an honest review. This is the first book I've read by Vicki Tharpe. While Must Love Horses can be read as a stand alone novel, if you think you might read more of the series I would recommend reading Cowgirl, Unexpectedly first since I suspect that there are more than just the who-ends-up-with-who spoiler (which I don't really consider a spoiler as the book jacket gives that away every time).It was a complex plot with complex (but certainly not perfect) characters. [...]

    13. Great bookI loved this book. COWBOYS, Military guys, horses, a ranch what more can a reader ask for in a romance book. I liked that Sidney was strong character. She stood her ground . Bryan was a typical military guy. Strong in charge kind of guy. It was a good story mixing in the real life of our military men and women that are hurt in combat. I would definitely recommend this book and will be looking for others written by this author.

    14. This is the second book of the Lazy S seriesI loved Cowgirl Unexpected so much I immediately bought this bookd I wasn't disappointed. This is Boomer's story, what happened to him in Afghanistan and the issues he must deal with day to day now that he is homed how love can help a man heal is after all a love story! Sidney is the perfect woman for Boomer.h, no nonsense and honest. Perfect chemistry between them. I've already preordered the next book in the series.

    15. I got this book as a giveaway on . Sidney Teller came to the Lazy S Ranch to audition for the job of horse trainer. She meets Boomer who will be her boss if she passes the test. This book is a love story that almost doesn't happen because of Boomer's addiction to alcohol and pain pills. Much of the characters will be tested before the end of the story. Will their love flourish ?

    16. I was really into this storyline until the last third/quarter of the book. It got so unbelievable and outlandish, I had a hard time sticking with it. Sydney and Bryan were interesting characters and had good backstories and chemistry.

    17. I won this ebook in a Giveaway in exchange for an honest review. it was a good romantic thriller with a good plot about the problems of addiction. I enjoyed it. Recommended.

    18. Part 2 of a series but stands alone nicely. Well written with complicated characters. Great book if your a romance thriller fan!

    19. A very damaged cowboy with a heart of gold, a girl with an undeserved reputation and a ranch in peril. Add in a young girl in turmoil. This book will keep you rivited to the very end.

    20. "Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review"3.5 stars.Definitely, “Must Love Horses” presents a powerful take on the wounded warrior, with no self-pity and a self-deprecating humor!I liked the realistic, sometimes poignant, portrayal of the stoic wounded veteran fighting so many issues and winning some battles in the end, with the help and love of the heroine, of course. Vicki Tharp doesn’t sugarcoat reality and the story shows what it’s like to suffer from phantom pai [...]

    21. Review by Amanda for Love Romance Books BlogI was asked by the author for an honest review. This is the first book I've read by Vicki Tharpe. While Must Love Horses can be read as a stand alone novel, if you think you might read more of the series I would recommend reading Cowgirl, Unexpectedly first since I suspect that there are more than just the who-ends-up-with-who spoiler (which I don't really consider a spoiler as the book jacket gives that away every time).It was a complex plot with comp [...]
