Review ~ RESISTING THE RANCHER by Roxanne Snopek

She's his best friend's sister, but he's ready to break all the rules…
Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.
Jonah is happy to help Little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with his best friend Zach’s wedding on the horizon, and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan. And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off. Jonah must resist or lose the only true family he’s ever known.

Roxanne Snopek is an author who never fails to tug at my heartstrings. She always manages to put just the right words and emotions into her writing to bring tears to my eyes.
In Resisting the Rancher, you get the real life emotions of an older brother trying to protect his baby sister, while realizing that she isn't a baby any longer.  Celia Gamble is living life as best she can after a tragic accident destroyed her family.  Celia is trying to be brave and face the world on her own, only to make a horrible mistake.
Jonah Clarke has always felt that he was a burden and had to be a certain way because his parents gave up what they loved to send him to college.  As a young lawyer who was overwhelmed, he made a mistake that cost someone their life.  Since then, he doesn’t have a desire to work with kids.
Celia and Jonah are two people who have been dancing around the way they feel about each other since childhood.  Jonah is the best friend of Celia’s brother and has been treated like the third son forever.  Jonah knows that he can’t risk destroying the relationship he has with the Gamble family.  However, with Celia making passes at him after her makeover, she’s making it very hard to resist.
When Celia’s past mistake comes back with a vengeance, Jonah is the only person she can turn to.  In the process of getting her past worked out, the two make discoveries about themselves and each other.

    1. You will totally enjoy the book Fedora. I even told Roxanne, that in the past I rated her books wrong. I believe I gave them 4 stars, but they should have gotten 5 stars. I just LOVE the whole series.
