When danger stalks their new home, it’s only their strength as a couple that keeps them safe.  

Ryker misses Jacob every day he’s away. At the start of a new Raptors season with everything to play for, Jacob, the desert ranch, and their small menagerie of animals have become an oasis of peace in a turbulent world. He’s never ridden a horse, he’s never considered how much this place would mean to him, but suddenly he’s forming a connection with a mare called Tops and loving every moment of this new life. Balancing hockey with his love for Jacob, he feels that nothing can ever go wrong.

With his life finally on track, Jacob is pouring all of himself into the dream he shares with Ryker. Putting the final touches on Mountain Vista Ranch, a halfway home for troubled LGBTQ youth and their families, fills his heart with pride. When their first clients arrive, he finds himself drawn to the small family and their plight. Little does he or Ryker know that the darkness the newcomers have fled from is following them.


4 Stars

This novella had me hooked. I couldn't put this one down. It's an emotional read with all the feels. We get to see Ryker and Jacob in their element on Mountain Vista Ranch. Such great work they are doing, My heart bled for the first family to come to the ranch. It also shows how important the work Jacob and Ryker are doing. Oh my gosh is Maksim makes for comedic relief, but also a sense of security for the ranch. This was a quick read for me, but man did it pack a punch. It pulled all the emotions out of me. I must say the epilogue was perfect because it gave a big smile, but it gives the little family a sense of hope. It's such a beautiful thing! If you're a fan of Locey and Scott's hockey romances you do not want to miss out on this novella. Trust me you will nit be disappointed, Just be prepared to want to read this in one sitting.
