Slow Ride Home (The Grady Legacy #1) by Leah Braemel(*)

Release date; November 11th

Losing his father was hard enough, but now Ben Grady must face the fact that he and his brother may not be sole owners of their beloved ranch. To protect his family's legacy, he's forced to rely on the legal prowess of the woman who stars in his erotic fantasies: Allie O'Keefe. Ben's never forgotten the illicit encounter they shared fifteen years ago—or forgiven himself for letting her go.

Allie thought she'd moved beyond the scandal that cost her Ben in the past. But working so closely with the seductive rancher arouses the wild child within the cautious woman she's become. Though she tries to keep business and pleasure separate, Allie soon gives in to temptation, and discovers Ben's sensual skills surpass even her X-rated memories…

Allie has every intention of leaving Bull's Hollow forever after her investigation is complete. But there are a few complications. Not the least of which is that while saving the ranch, Allie's lost her heart
I am not big on Cowboy romance , its not a genre I've ever got into but something about the synopsis ticked the right boxes, maybe it was Bens apparent sensual skills, or the strong character of Allie, either way i'm glad this book made its way into my life. So we start of meeting Allie, a strong lawyer with a past we don't learn much about. We know something has happened but we dont learn straight away which leaves the reader guessing. We swiftly meet Ben, ill admit it, i wasnt keen - but that soon changed. 
Ben tipped his hat up with one finger and shot her a lazy grin that melted her a little inside. His gaze swept down her body blazing a path even hotter than the sun
What follows develops into a complicated but delicious battle of emotions, past feelings and twists and turns. The whole reason Allie returns is to solve a dispute to do with Bulls Hollow and that is the whole point of the story, i found it captivating and found myself guessing what the heck had actually happened. I found myself in fields with the characters, drinking water whilst horseback riding. I loved the Grady men, well the living ones. However, what i loved was Bens nature, how he wasnt afraid to go both barrels head first into love. Allie, is more cautious and realistic and the two fit so perfectly together. This was a nice intro to Cowboy romance and well, im after more now!
The warm fuzzy feelings fed the long-slumbering love she'd once had for him

Rating; 8/10
