Free—from family, duty, and responsibility.
Cam Miller has spent most of his life bound by choices others made for him. He did what had to be done to provide for his little sister, and he doesn’t regret that. But now, with her off to college, he can finally put ranching behind him and pursue the life he’s always dreamed of… far from Granite Junction. But after one night of passion comes back to haunt him, he fears his hard-won freedom is only temporary . . .
Independent—from family, relationships, and matters of the heart.
Molly Brennan was living her best life as a rodeo trick rider until a failed marriage forced her from the arena. Now she’s perfectly fine running her own hair salon and raising her daughter solo. She doesn’t need a man, but what could it hurt to indulge in a little no-strings fun with a sexy cowboy?
When Molly realizes she’s pregnant, she pulls herself up by her bootstraps. She’s handled things this far on her own and she can do it again, although she’s finding it isn’t so easy to let Cam go. But Cam’s not the kind of man who shirks responsibility. Finding himself torn between a woman who feels like home and his need to break free, where will Cam’s heart lead him?

The Restless Cowboy by Megan Ryder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“4- It’s never easy doing the right thing – Stars!”
Publication Date: April 27, 2021
The Restless Cowboy is the first book that I’ve read by this author and the second book in the Granite Junction series.
I was quite surprised by this book.
Even though it started out slow, when it did pick up (and it did pick up) it turned out to be a good story.
The two main characters (Cam and Molly) are involved in a short-term, casual fling.
There is definitely chemistry and a strong attraction to one another, but both know that Cam is eventually leaving town to start a new life eight hours away.
His ranch is sold, and he’s bought a new business.
He’s finally FREE to do what he wants to do with his life.
But, when the last time Cam and Molly are intimate and a surprise pregnancy is a result, the characters both have to decide how to proceed and do what’s best for themselves and the arrival of a baby.
I liked the conflict the male protagonist was facing between duty and responsibility, and I liked the strength and confidence of the female protagonist.
Both were likable characters and the story was well written.
If you’re looking for a small-town, cozy western romance, then this book might be something you might like.
