Waiting on a Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan is the first book in her McGrath series. First off, when I read the blurb for this book I never expected the story to be as suspenseful as it is. This story is definitely fingernail-biting, edge-of-your-set reading. I could not put this book down. I NEEDED to know what was going to happen next.
The plot is complex yet allows the reader to follow along easily. Ms. Ryan’s characters are very realistic and their personalities just about explode off the pages. I loved this story! I’m sure anyone who picks up this book will enjoy it.
The next book in the series is Tate’s brother Declan’s story in Love of a Cowboy due to release on March 30. 2021.

When he finally tracks her down, he finds her with a man he knows nothing about and she’s been dating for weeks. Suddenly, he can’t make himself ignore her tempting curves and deep green eyes, and all he wants to do is keep her all to himself. What was going on? Could he possibly be…jealous?
Liz had made the decision: stop carrying a torch for Tate and find a guy who wants to be her everything. Tate had always seen her as honest, dependable, smart, kind…Best friend, not girlfriend! And she needed to give up the dream of marrying the man she’d loved since preschool and move on.
But when Liz’s boyfriend turns dangerous, Tate steps up to help and soon realizes he’s the cowboy hero she’s been waiting for him to be all along.
