The Wrangler and The Orphan by Jackie North

I've followed the Farthingdale Ranch Series from the beginning and I was waiting to see who Jackie North matched with Brody and I can't think of a better match than Kit in The Wrangler and The Orphan

From the Blurb:

"Some scars run soul-deep. Some scars only love can heal."
Brody is the wrangler at Farthingdale Ranch. He knows a lot about horses, but not a whole lot about people.

He is so broken, he cannot imagine anyone would want to love him. Then along comes Kit, a young man in need of shelter, searching for a forever home.

In Kit, Brody sees the scared young man he used to be. In caring for Kit, Brody is in over his head.

But as Brody makes room in his heart for Kit, both their lives begin to change.

A gay m/m cowboy romance with hurt/comfort, rescue, age gap, fish out of water, opposites attract, midnight rendezvous. A little sweet, a little steamy, with a guaranteed HEA.

Heather's Review:

You know it's an interesting read when the steamiest scenes don't involve either MC, but that's kind of what I love about Jackie North - she doesn't make her characters do more than they're ready for and in the case of Brody, the Wrangler and Kit, the Orphan, they are destined to be friends and colleagues before becoming more... Both of their backstories offer parallels to each other, but differ enough that they have to spend time learning each other.   

Once again, Jackie is able to spin magic into The Wrangler and The Orphan both creating a safe place for Kit to land and to nurture both souls...  This book can be read standalone, but I do recommend checking out the rest of the Farthingdale Ranch series.
