Wendy reviews Kyle (Legacy Series Book 1) by RJ Scott. Published by Love Lane Books LTD August 29,2016, 203 pages.

Kyle Braden has nowhere else to go. With no money and no prospects, he turns to the only man who promises him help. Jack Campbell-Hayes wants to show Kyle that he can be more than he ever thought.

Kyle begins to see how far he’s come from being the scarred man who shut everyone out, when the first person through the doors of Legacy Ranch is Jason, a young man with nightmares that follow him when he’s awake.

Lost in the system and with three years on the streets marking every inch of his body, Jason Smith is scared. His life is an evil mess of hate and despair, and even the offer of a fresh start and a clean bed isn’t enough to make him feel safe. Until Kyle comes into his life and shows him that it’s okay not to be in control.

For these broken men, Legacy Ranch offers more than a place to live and work.

It offers hope.

Why I read this book: This book was recommended to me by my fellow Rainbow Gold reviewer Bethany. Thank you Bethany, you were exactly right, this was just the book I needed.

What can I say… I’m a complete goner for a the character that’s broken. The one who wants to be ok with himself, but just doesn’t feel like he will ever be worthy or worth someones time or trouble. Add the hotness of cowboys and a great story and you have this book. Kyle is all of the above things and on top of all that, he suffers from severe PTSD. He can’t for the life of him believe that the Campbell-Hayes’ would think that he was good enough to head this project, but he craves the solitude and responsibility that it gives him. It was a joy to watch him grow and start to believe in himself and it gave me serious feels when I watched this character suffer and struggle. And then there’s Jason. this poor young man… soooo much has happened to him that you can just feel the sadness that comes from deep inside of his soul. I wondered if the two of them would be able to work together on building Legacy Ranch much less become friends and maybe something more. They certainly had their work cut out for them, but these guy are made of tough and grit and didn’t give up. I was on the edge of my seat many times watching them find their way to each other and their way to becoming productive members of the ranch. It was such a great story and I love watching characters grow and fight their way to the HEA they deserve.

The story is well written, the characters make you care about them in a big way and the plot is heartwarming even when it’s breaking your heart at the same time. I can’t wait to read the next book of this series and I need to know the beginning, where it all started too so I’m off to read the original series that this came from, the Texas Series. I really enjoyed this authors writing and RJ Scott is going to be an auto buy for me from now on.
