Publisher's Summary

Now updated with duet narration from Aaron Shedlock and Stella Hunter.

"Giddy up! Kim Loraine nails this sexy cowboy romance and you'll want to take this book for a ride!" (Number one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely)

What happens when a gorgeous, curvy network exec from LA shows up on the doorstep of my ranch? A big, fat pay-off to replace what my thieving ex took and enough sexual chemistry to light the Montana Sky on fire. 

Her plan? Send a cast of city slickers to the ranch to learn how to saddle up like a real cowboy. 

I’ve got one condition. She has to come learn the ropes before I’ll agree to let strangers come work my ranch. 

She thinks it’ll be a piece of cake. I’m sure she’s not going to last. But it’s going to be fun watching her try. There’s just one problem. I want her to save a horse and ride...me. 

Saddle Up is a steamy, heartfelt, stand-alone romantic comedy in the Ryker Ranch series. This series includes Saddle Up, Bucked Off, Ridden Hard, and Roped Tight. Each book can stand alone and follows all four of the Ryker brothers. 

Save a horse, ride a Ryker.

Saddled Up

A Country boy with a City girl makes for a perfect romance story. Add in a reality show and it gets even better. I have to say that this book was so fun to listen to. Both the writing and the narration gripped my attention the whole time and the ending has me wanted the next book coming up.

Fun light hearted listen

This is a very fun listen. Turning a ranch into a survivor type show isn’t going to be easy. With a hot cowboy and an LA producer, it’s a great twist on the fish out of water story. Lots of laughs, and the characters have great chemistry. Aaron Shedlock makes a great cowboy.

A slow burn with a sweet payoff

I have read cowboy romance before but this was my first audiobook experience with it. I loved the writing, and the narration just made it even better. Stella did a great job as usual and Aaron made me swoon so many times my heart still hurts. I really enjoyed the story and this introduction to the Ryker family. I can't wait to try out more from Kim Loraine after I finish this series ❤️🎧❤️

I just loved Clint and Ever!

I loved this book. I mean, what's better than a sexy cowboy? Clint is doing his best to help keep the ranch running no matter what when along comes Ever with an offer he might not want to resist and boy does he resist. At first. He and Ever are like oil and water. He thinks he can scare her off, but doesn't have much luck.

Stella is still pretty new to me in the world of narrating. She was fantastic as Ever. All sass and I love it! Aaron was absolutely delicious as Clint. I mean hello cowboy!

Saddle Up

I loved this book so much that I bought the e-book too, which I seldom do. Kim Loraine does an awesome job with story progression and character development. If you have not heard Stella Hunter you are missing out! She is my new voice crush! Her comedic timing s excellent and she has great characters and her maile voice is awesome! Aaron Shedlock os the quintessential cowboy and brings so much talent to the narration. Stella and Aaron complement each other and nothing is lost between chapters. You will not be disappointed in this book and the series!

Cute!

This is my first ever Kim Loraine book and I can’t wait to read more by her. It’s been a long time since I read a cowboy romance and this baby didn't disappoint. From the very beginning I knew I was going to love this baby! Considering the length of this book I was expecting that our main characters, Clint and Ever, would jump right into things but this was a nice little slow burn which I very much loved and appreciated. You could really feel the tension building and building as the story moved along. I thought this was so cute and I can't wait to read more from the Ryker Ranch series.

Hottest cowboys alert!

Loving this first in Kim Loraine’s Ryker Ranch series and will definitely be getting into the rest of this series. Stella Hunter is fabulous and Aaron Shedlock has a voice that will curl your toes.

A great cowboy audio with laughs and feels.

Clint and Ever are an unlikely pairing. The grump and quiet ranch owner and the city slicking reality TV show producer. An unexpected weather event throws them together and her desperation to climb the production ladder has her agreeing to play “ranch hand” for a few weeks to get him to sign on the dotted line.

This is a fun opposites attract love story, where the feelings bowl both Clint and Ever over from the start. I loved the funny moments peppered throughout the heartfelt emotions that have Clint questioning what he wants from life and Ever whether the city is really for her.

This book has good pacing and we meet the rest of Clint’s family who I’m sure have books too. Looking forward to getting stuck into more of Kim’s books.


Aaron effortlessly gives us the grumpy Clint who is set to push Ever to her city born limits. Stella shows us just how sassy and independent Ever is. Great narration by this pair/ An audiobook that was just easy on the ears.

Short cowboy romance story

A short swoon cowboy insta love story.
Hot, heartwarming, enjoyable read. tv producer and a smooth-talking cowboy.

I do love a swoon-worthy cowboy and Clint Ryker ticks all the right box's

I thoroughly enjoyed this insta love story however I was left a little confused. This is book 1 in a new series but there's definitely a lot more that went on before this book begins.
This is in the blurb below but it isn't mentioned in the book, so what exactly went down? Saddle Up starts where Clint is picking up the pieces after his ex-fiance had pretty much left the family broke after doing away with all their money.

*********************
Blurb: His dad has all but promised him the ranch when he retires.

His mama loves the woman he plans to marry.

And his almost-fiancee? She's the perfect finishing touch to the life he's got planned out for himself.

Except all hell breaks loose when she takes off with one of the ranch hands and most of the Ryker Ranch money in her pocket.
Heartbroken and trust demolished, Clint doesn't know if he'll ever find love again. Until Ever Wilson walks onto his property
******************************************

I would have liked more depth and more insight as to what went on there before Ever turned up on the Ryker ranch to save the day with her tv series proposal. Is it in a previous book from another series?

Regardless of the above, I really enjoyed Clint and Ever's story. I listened to this book in audio and enjoyed the smooth male voice of the narrator who really did Clint justice, so much so I then downloaded the other books in the series which are available in a box set 1-3

Recommended quick swoon-worthy cowboy romance.

Darlin'

I love cowboys. Do I need to say more? This is such a fun and ruggedly provocative listen! Ever Wilson has approached the Ryker Ranch to do a reality show. With the beautiful ranch as the backdrop, and the good looking Ryker brothers, she is sure to have a hit on her hands. But she has hit a snag. Clint Ryker has a counter offer. He will allow the show if she comes to the ranch and does a test run. She agrees to 3 weeks, after all, how hard can it be? And we are off to learn just how easy it is to fall in love! Kim Loraine has once again stolen my heart. Clint is so protective of his family, his ranch and Ever that it's impossible not to fall for him! And Ever is so sweet and I love her journey to finding what truly is her path. Add in the other brothers and Clint's mom, witty banter, incredible chemistry and you know, Darlin' it has to be good!

Now the casting of cowboys can be difficult. They do have a particular sound in my mind. Aaron Shedlock pulls it off without a hitch! His slight twang, his protective inflections and saying of the word "Darlin'" had me melting. Stella Hunter is new to me, and she is fabulous! She easily became Ever and really enhanced the role with her nuances and voices. I love this team, and hope to hear them continue the series!
