Two men destroyed by the past learn to live—and love—again.
Kyle Braden has nowhere else to go. With no money, no prospects, and no drive to be something else, he turns to the only man who promises him help. Jack Campbell-Hayes wants to show Kyle that he can be more than he ever thought.
Kyle gets to realize just how far he’s come from being the scarred man who shut everyone out, when the first person through the doors of Legacy Ranch carries a gun and threatens to kill anyone who comes near him. Kyle wants to be the man that someone turns to for help and it scares him.
Thrown out of his house and with three years on the streets marking every inch of his body, Jason Smith is scared. His life is an evil mess of hate and despair, and even the offer of a fresh start and a clean bed isn’t enough for him to hand over his gun. He’s cheated death twice, and he’s not letting there be a third time—he might not be so lucky.
For these broken men, Legacy Ranch offers more than a place to live and work.
It offers hope.
A new story set in the world of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes and the Double D Ranch, Texas.
Kyle is a powerful story about some very broken men! It’s a story more about healing and learning what love is more than it’s a romance. This is a touching book that made me feel so much for these characters.
Kyle and Jason have led very abused and painful lives, they exist in a world where love doesn’t exist and no one is kind just to be kind, there is always a price. But, now they are Legacy Ranch, where Jack and Riley hope to show these damaged men that there is more to life, that people can be good.
Kyle has been at the ranch for a bit, building the buildings and taking care of his horse, and more importantly trying to rebuild himself. He still looks at every man as someone he may have to take on, but he’s trying. Jason has lived on the streets, sold himself to survive and has seen death up close. He’s given an opportunity to be at the ranch and he believes it’s short lived, like everything else.
Kyle and Jason have a slow build to friends at first, learning to trust each other, to not expect the absolute worst from each other. It builds beautifully though, each man coming to terms with their experiences and healing little by little together. The pain of their pasts still exists but together they seem to be able to learn there can be more for their future.
This was not the easiest read, these two have been through so much and it shows and it broke my heart at times, but it was definitely worth it! I loved Kyle and Jason and was rooting for them the whole time – if two people deserve love it is these two. I loved seeing how, as their relationship grew, they were able to depend on each other and draw strength from each other.
Overall, this was a very touching story focused more on the healing and finding that love. While there is pain and darkness in this story there are many more heartwarming moments as Kyle and Jason rebuild. There are also many other great characters that support Kyle and Jason on this journey as well. I really enjoyed this book, it definitely has a spot in my heart and cannot wait for more of this series!
