I am reviewing
J-Bar ranch foreman Malloy pretty much keeps to himself—slinking around the edges of everybody else like an old coyote, doing his job and staying private. That is until Crispin Carrasco shows up.
Lean, muscular, and with a motor mouth that won’t quit, Crispin sparks something in Malloy—something the foreman didn’t know was there. But how does a lone coyote approach the warmth of a fire? And more important, what would happen if that fire burned?
Malloy's surprised to learn the ranch has a new hire, Crispin, who's openly gay and considered an oddball. And what a lovely breath of fresh air Crispin is! Within minutes of meeting, Crispin claims that they're soulmates, and it doesn't take long for Crispin to charm Malloy.
What follows is a heart-warming romance of two men who desperately need one another. Malloy's cut himself off from people, afraid of being left behind. With the help of Crispin, he can learn to love again.
You will cry for Crispin, and then you'll cry some more for Malloy. I don't want to give away a lot, but this story is an emotional journey. The healing of Malloy is as touching as it gets.
My Cowboy Heart is such a beautiful story. Well developed, great pace and an excellent storyline. I can't wait to dig into the next book in this ZA Maxfield series.
