My heart went out to Dakota when she learned about Cole’s secret. Having been in many relationships with a lot of secrets, it was easy for me to relate to how she was feeling. The Forever Texan series books are all linked, but can be read on their own. This was my favorite quote form the book: That something she’d seen in his eyes wasn’t a fluke. It was real and powerful and earth-shattering. And she dared him to say otherwise.

    Friends to lovers stories have become a staple in the romance genre. With Redeeming The Texas Rancher, Ms. Sands puts her spin on a commonplace theme and creates gold. Cole and Day are sweet together, clueless to each others feelings but magically light up the story with that instantaneous chemistry they exude. For the good of the heart and the happiness of the soul Charlene Sands creates something to be proud of with this lovelorn duo. Not to be missed.

    Texas rancher met his match At first I was like oh no not another unrequited love?! But what drew me to this story was after Dakota and Colby were hot and cold. She finally had enough and said I'm not going to be your doormat. And Colby although slow on the uptake he definitely made it up to Dakota. I love the supporting characters as well. Especially Brett Coiler ( Switzerland). Recommend giving it a read.

    Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf When two people have cared about, maybe even loved each other for years… each unknown about by the other, well sooner or later something’s got to give. And Dakota had decided that it was long past time to get over Cody. He certainly didn’t see her the way she needed him to, and if that hadn’t changed in years why was she holding out hope. So she set out to find another man who could lure her heart away from one stubborn cowboy. That didn’t exactly work as intended. Co Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf When two people have cared about, maybe even loved each other for years… each unknown about by the other, well sooner or later something’s got to give. And Dakota had decided that it was long past time to get over Cody. He certainly didn’t see her the way she needed him to, and if that hadn’t changed in years why was she holding out hope. So she set out to find another man who could lure her heart away from one stubborn cowboy. That didn’t exactly work as intended. Cody had loved Dakota for as long as he could remember – from afar. He’d never tell her because she deserved a man without secrets. It had sort of worked right up until Dakota started dating. Yeah. His heart wasn’t going to take that easily. He knew what he should do, but what his emotions told him to do was far more risky. It’s time to make a decision. Walk away for good or take a risk with both of their hearts. Redeeming The Texas Rancher will touch your heart, capture your attention on two really good people who happen to already love each other. Two very stubborn people who will have to trust that secrets only have a hold over you when they’re unspoken. I hurt for Dakota and Cody, they really did belong together and watching their journey to that mutual decision was both heartbreaking and heart warming. If you love the type of romance that seems destined to not happen because of secrets and stubbornness, then you’ll love Dakota and Cody’s story. I’d highly recommend this story to any Romance reader. *I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*

    It was an ok fun read, but the love interest was so annoying to presume that he knew better than the heroine what it could and couldn't hurt her and decide for her! Arghhh!!! He also lied to her, and that's a big no-no in my book! She was pretty good at bringing him down a few pegs and not let him get his ways... 2.5 stars.

    The storyline sounds as if it was written by a 15 yr. old. Yes, a woman loving a guy forever and he doesn’t notice her is a normal storyline, but usually there is something to catch one’s interest. Not in this one, for me, is that ingredient that caught me up in the story.

    They talk about horse sense a lot when referring to those who have been brought up on a ranch. Well, at least been around horses. Those with horse sense usually are smart and practical. One to be counted on to make good decisions. That is exactly what Dakota Jennings had thought most of her life about Colby Ryan her good friend and boss.

Those with horse sense usually are smart and practical. One to be counted on to make good decisions. That is exactly what Dakota Jennings had thought most of her life about Colby Ryan her good friend and boss. What he had never figured out in all these years is that she has been in love with him since she was ten. Being he was fifteen at the time she was always just a child he had to look out for. Their moms were BFF’s. But she’s all grown up now and one of the best horse wranglers around. So, she not only does that job for him but much more. She's never minding until lately. After two weeks away staying with the mom’s in Arizona she is done waiting for him to see her. She plans to start dating. When she mentions her mom’s getting back on the horse so to speak he is all for it. But when she mentions she’s going to take her mom’s lead he gets kind of defensive. He really gets bent when the sexy young stud her own age comes over to give her the house key and help her with her luggage after she told Cole she had them. When he asks Brett why he has a key to her house Brett says to water her plants of course and to be able to free up some of her space on her DVR, all those romantic movies she likes to take up too much space. Duh! Was the look he got. Let’s just say he had no club first of all that she liked romantic movies and two he had no clue she had any house plants. Not to mention Brett was not going to be having a pleasant time at poker by the look on Coles face Brett tease Dakota later. When Brett walks to the porch he tells Day, “You wouldn’t let me carry your luggage for you.” Sounding wounded she thought. She tells him he’s just trying to be neighborly. He storms off getting in his truck and driving off in a huff. Over the next several days Cole’s life becomes more complicated. Day isn't acting or responding to him in the same way she normally does. Not to mention her first day back Brett brings her to work. When he ask her why? She says, “Really? Cole, do you remember why you picked me up at the airport in the first place? My car is in the shop.” He felt really stupid. He also forgot he had hired Brett to work on the stables. So, every time he turned around he and Day were laughing and talking during their breaks. The final straw was when she was in the barn and he walked in to get his gear to take Ella on a horseback ride. She was hugging Brett. When he asks what is going she could tell he was mad. Well, then she got mad too because she said she was hugging him because it is his birthday. What really pissed her off was when he says you never hug anyone for their birthday. She says, “Yes, I do. Ask any one of the guys I just don’t hug you.” So, later that day at lunch that they eat together every day he asks her for a birthday hug and… You will have to read to see what this feisty young cowgirl does. She’s smart enough to know that God gave her curves but her boss at her second job, “Barely There” gives her the sexy under clothing to sweetin’ the pot. The under clothing, he never knew she liked to wear under her standard jeans and shirt for working with the horses. She needs to make her point that she is not just one of his work hands and just his best bud. She is all woman. I give this: 5 stars. Provided by netgalley.com.

I could’ve gotten a ride home.” Dakota Jennings wasn’t a quitter. That’s what Cole told her he liked best about her a dozen times, but this time she was done. Over. Finished. She’d quit him as a way of self-preservation although she wasn’t quite ready to quit her job on the ranch. Will Dakota be the woman to redeem his broken soul? read this book to find out.

They’ve been best friends forever but Day wants more while Cole is reluctant to potentially ruin that friendship despite the fact that he’s suddenly discovered his attraction to Day. The story is well paced and both Day and Cole were likeable characters. I found myself cheering her on while wanting to knock some sense into him for his inability to commit. I also liked the plot, which to some extent revolved around a secret from Cole’s past. Being relatively short and fairly straightforward, this story makes for great weekend reading. I enjoyed it.

    I have enjoyed this Texas Series by Charlene Sands with each book having a different trope. Redeeming the Texas Rancher has childhood friends nor boss and employee theme going on between Colby and Dakota. To top it off their mothers have been best friends forever and day. I especially liked Dakota with her tomboy and girly sides creating her into the perfect woman for stubborn Colby. Of course, Colby had many good qualities but these were overshadowed by his dense as a turnip mentality.

However, if he hadn’t have been there wouldn’t have been much of a story because he would have caught Dakota years ago. It is always good to see glimpses of the couples from the previous books but no worries if this is the first book to be read in the series. I especially liked to the subplot with Dakota’s neighbor. Hope his story is next. The publisher provided an ARC of the book through NetGalley

Up until then, I was loving it. I just hate it when the guy doesn’t have to do much of anything to get the girl. He screws up and then boom! It doesn’t matter.

    3.5 stars. I enjoyed this book! I love Texas and I love cowboys, so this was right up my alley. While the book was slightly more tame than I tend to read, I thought it was well-written and enjoyable. Dakota wasn't my favorite heroine in the world (a bit of a doormat for a while there), and Cole was a bit of a stubborn ass. While there were a couple of moments/plot twists I didn't appreciate, the BEST part of the book by far was that the h made the H grovel. GROVEL! Can you believe it? It's somet 3.5 stars.

I think that's honestly why I'm rating the book so high. It's like finding a needle in a haystack in the romance world.

    Redeeming the Texas Rancher is the third book in the Forever Texan series. Two hearts, one soul connecting. But Colby isn't willing to risk hurting Dakota. Dakota has been pining after Colby for years while Colby has remained a gentleman to her. But once Colby sees more than the tomboy, he realizes there could be something between them. Do they have a chance? I really enjoyed this story. A definite must-read!

    Very romantic mystery with twists and turns and a big surprise out of the blue....will these two ever get together? Cole works hard on his ranch and Day is his best employee. Cole and Day have known each other since childhood. Day has secretly been in love with Cole but he is her best friend and Cole thinks of Day as his best friend. Cole has a secret from his past, and he is afraid to become romantically involved, but why? I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down..

    Not exciting at all I am afraid. The characters weren't up to lead parts, and were both rather dull. The only bright moment was when Faith was born.... a darling baby horse. Sorry folks. I am normally a 4-5 Star girls, so 3* is something I rarely give, but this story really wasn't up to more.

    Bored to tears I even put it down halfway through to read another book. I felt sorry for Day and her lack of backbone. He truly didn't deserve any effort at all. The characters were sketches and stupid sketches at that. It reminded me of the overblown drama of Wuthering Heights. It was just bad.

    Book 3 in the Forever Texan series, I really enjoyed this story. Dakota and Colby were fabulous characters and with the engaging storyline made for a great read. I look forward to reading more by this author and if you love a good cowboy story I suggest you add this to your list.

    5+ Star's I was so entangled in the story that I could not stop reading until the very end, well done. The characters are strong both male and female, the story was funny, suspenseful, steamy, and romantic.
