The Last Good Cowboy
Morgan Ranch #3
By: Kate Pearce
Releasing April 25th, 2017
In The Last Good Cowboy (Morgan Ranch #3) by Kate Pearce, Ry Morgan has had enough of following and supporting his brother on the rodeo circuit, so he's decided to return home and help out on the family ranch. Even though, nightmares plague him because of what happened years ago to make their mother leave. Still, he's determined to overcome his pain, even if he has to face the past for that to happen. Luckily, he has Avery Hayes -- the one hometown girl he's never been able to forget -- in his corner, otherwise he might find himself drowning in the past. Will they be able to help each other face the hurts of their pasts, so they can have a shot at happy ever after?
Ms. Pearce is a new-to-me author, but after finishing this story I'm determined to go back and read the previous books of this series. The Morgan brothers are an interesting bunch of sexy men that love their women dearly, but they're also dealing with a situation that has them at odds with how to proceed. Ry doesn't know whether he wants to pursue the course of action that the rest of his brothers do, because of the things his mother did to him. Yet, at the same time, he needs closure. Will he get the answers he's looking for?

As for the main characters, both were compelling and I loved their growing relationship, as the hero isn't afraid to push the heroine when it comes to closing herself off and not seeing the positive to her accident. Seriously, it could have been a lot worse for her. Moreover, I liked how the heroine blooms throughout this story with Ry's help. She proves how strong and brave she is by overcoming her fear of how she got hurt and I liked her determination to reach for something other than working at her parents hotel, as her parents are too over-protective and worry about her too much. Really, her parents concern felt a little stifling from the heroine's point of view.

While the hero, he goes through a lot in this story too. Being at odds with his twin is something that's never happened, and I could understand why he needed to escape his twin's world and the rodeo life. His twin seemed a bit self-absorbed, needy and I liked that Ry started standing up for what he wants instead of continuing to always be there for his twin. Furthermore, I felt sorry for him when he was torn between wanting answers about the past and not wanting to confront it. How could his mother treat Ry the way she did? He and his twin were equals.

Overall, I really enjoyed this third book of Ms. Pearce's Morgan Ranch series where the chemistry between this couple was delightful, intense and illustrated how much these two needed each other in their lives to help the other overcome the hurts of their pasts. The way this story ended had me cheering for this couple's happy ever after, because Ry and Avery deserved all the happiness in the world. However, it was right at the end of this book that has me looking forward to the next story of this series. Whose story will it be? I would recommend The Last Good Cowboy by Kate Pearce, if you enjoy the friends to lovers trope, or books by authors Donna Michaels, Kathleen Bell or Anne McAllister.

The Morgan ranch has seen its share of bad times. But as the four Morgan brothers are drawn back to their childhood home, the nightmares of their past give way to the promise of a new beginning…

Ry Morgan has always had a thing for Avery Hayes—one more hope his twin wrecked for him, pretending to be Ry to kiss her at the high school prom. Eight years later, Ry has had enough: he’s quitting the pro rodeo circuit, moving home to California to mend fences, and letting his brother clean up his own messes for a change. Reclaiming Avery’s stolen kiss is at the top of his agenda…

But Avery has changed. Her rodeo career ended with a fall that left her lucky to be alive, let alone walking. She hasn’t been on a horse since, and between surgeries and fighting off everybody’s pity she hasn’t done much else either. Ry is strong, confident, and sexy as hell—exactly what she thought she wanted at seventeen. Now, she’ll have to protect the safe space she’s made for herself—or risk it all for a dream she thought would never come again…
