Publisher's Summary

Can Tom and Rose navigate their friendship to find a new brand of happily ever after?

The only thing Tom Lovell knows is ranching, having been raised by a single dad on a Montana cattle ranch before moving to Three Rivers Ranch. He's watched other men on the ranch get hitched one by one, but he's not sure he's the marrying type. His mother's abandonment when he was a child colors how he sees women, and besides, he's a fifth generation cowboy, and that's enough for him.

Rose Reyes has been raising her autistic child, Mari, by herself for seven years. She's frustrated she doesn't have an adult to talk to after a long day at work, that her ex-husband seems to have moved on without a care about Mari while Rose is determined to wait until she's older before dating again. Though Mari's been improving due to her equine therapy, she's moody and sometimes explosive, and Rose just wants a break from it all.

She confesses to Tom that she feels completely out of control of her life. He doesn't judge her for her feelings or shortcomings, and instead offers to help fix her leaking kitchen sink and mow her overgrown lawn. As Tom and Rose spend more time together, Tom realizes his friendship with Rose could grow into something more - if he'd let it. Tom and Rose will need faith and love to navigate the road from friendship to something more, without risking Mari in the process.

Great story

Fifth Generation Cowboy is a wonderful sweet and clean romance. The storyline has a nice pace and I was engaged throughout. The characters are relatable and realistic and made me really want a happily ever after for them. The narrator gave a wonderful performance.

Listen to your heart

Fifth Generation Cowboy is an exciting book. Liz Isaacson has written another amazing western romance. The audio book is narrated by Becky Doughty. Her performance is outstanding. Tom and Rose’s romance is a little different because Rose’s daughter, Mary, has autism. The book looks at the problems that a single mother has when dealing with her special needs child. Ms Isaacson handles the story expertly. Fifth Generation Cowboy is wonderful. I received an arc code for my honest review.

Single mom of autistic child and an honest Cowboy

I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review. I This was a great reading. I love this series and the narration makes it even better. This is a story of two people overcoming their own struggles and learning to trust one another. This is a heartwarming story about a single mother with an autistic daughter going through preteen years finding someone who can be there to lean on.

Lovely clean romance, realistic characters

*I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. Story: 5 stars Here was a mom I could finally emotionally connect with and relate to: Rose Reyes. She is a single mom, has an autistic daughter and is struggling with daily life, including her patience. Tom is just what she and her daughter need. He's naturally calm, not afraid of hard work and has a heart big enough for them both. I really appreciated the author's portrayal of the fact that not all mom's are perfect, that kids (autistic or not) can really try our patience, and that we can't always do everything alone and yet we are still good moms. Tom does rescue them in more ways than one, but they also rescue him and give him the love and family he has been craving. Narration: 4.5 stars Ms. Doughty does a very good job with a Texas accent and her men sound like men. I truly enjoy listening to her. Her cadence, expression and tone are soothing to listen to. I look forward to listening to her again. *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

Great read

Fantastic read for friemds to lovers trope. A single mom & a ranch hand are fast friends who try to deny their feelings for each other for some time. AN unexpected family emergnecy and a sudden move causes a few hiccups in their lives. Becky Doughty does a great job narrating the book & bringing the characters to life.

Beautiful

I've listened to Second Chance Ranch, Third Time's the Charm, and Fourth and Long for several years - over and over again. What a delight to now have FIFTH GENERATION COWBOY, The Seventh Sergeant and the Eight Second Ride. So enjoyed the narrator's performance! A delightful way to "read" on the go, for my walks, bike rides, car rides, cooking, cleaning, resting. With 17 books (including a collection of 3) in my library, I do admit she's my favorite narrator. Really loving the southern drawl in these sweet Cowboy love stories, expertly performed by Becky Doughty. What a pleasure to listen to them.

Book 4

This was a great story. It's funny how the male and female lead dance around each other before coming together.The story shows how life can throw wrenches in any plans you might have had for yourself. Thankfully, faith and love make it workout in the end.

Great emotional story

I really enjoyed listening to Tom and Rose's story. Tom is a strong, shy, kind, and caring man. Rose is a single, divorces mother of an autistic daughter. This is a well written and very emotion story with a sensitive story line. Highly recommend. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
