Review – Ty Hard by Laura Harner

Book Title - Ty Hard
Author - Laura Harner
Publisher - Hot Corner Press
Tyler has used Don't Ask, Don't Tell as a shield against the truth since he was seventeen. Now, Ty finds himself cut loose from his Navy career after months of rehab from a debilitating head injury. At a loss as to what to do with his life, he travels to Willow Springs Ranch in Arizona to visit his surrogate father, only to arrive minutes after his oldest friend's death. Ty must come to terms with the loss while he fights to keep the PTSD from pulling him under. The last thing he's ready to think about is his growing attraction for another man.
Rancher Cass Cartwright's relationships never last more than a few hours, and that's just the way he likes it. Now he's in danger of doing the one thing he swore never to do: fall in love. Can Cass convince Ty to let go of his past or will sabotage at the ranch kill their love before it has a chance to grow?

Raised in California, Laura likes it hot, which explains why she ended up in Arizona via such diverse places as Japan, Maine, and Florida, and many more places in between. After retiring from the US Navy, she found a niche working for land management agencies, including the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Though she has held many jobs around the world, her favorite was working and living in Grand Canyon National Park. Working (and eating) in New Orleans was a close second. You will find many of her books are set against the rich backdrops provided by coastal Louisiana and northern Arizona.
When asked how she started writing, Laura tells of waking on Boxing Day a few years ago, with a woman named Elena MacFarland yammering in her dreams, demanding her story be told. Despite never attempting to write fiction before that morning, Laura ignored all of the holiday visitors and the Highland Destiny series was born. She doesn’t believe it was a coincidence that the great grandmother who died when Laura was just a baby was named Elena MacFarland. Destiny does play a hand.
Laura became a full-time writer in 2012, and now she spends her time writing, watching her Arizona Diamondbacks, and working on her very own version of the Willow Springs Ranch in northwestern Arizona. She is a multi-published author of erotic romance, mystery, and urban fantasy and her books can be found at all major online retailers.

I really liked this book! It is raw, sexy, heart breaking, beautiful, all the things I love in a good book. It is a pretty quick read, but I was hooked from the beginning.
Tyler had been released from the military, and was headed to the only person he really trusted and cared about. Gibby had told him he was welcome on the ranch and would have a job. He could continue to recover from his injuries. But when Tyler arrived on the ranch, Gibby was being transported out by helicopter. His friend was dead. He had no where to go. Cass Cartwright is the owner of Willow Springs ranch. He has made it a point of only having cowboys who are not homophobic on his ranch. He never messes with any of his workers or anyone he has dealings with, but Tyler is just what he wants. But Tyler is damaged. He has PTSD and Cass isn't sure if he is qualified to help Ty. The two of them learn a lot about each other while facing some scary trials at the ranch. Tyler has so many demons in his closet he has a very difficult time accepting who he is. The walls Cass will have to scale to reach Ty may be too much.
This is a great read filled with twists and turns, I loved everything about it. It is a very sexy read, the only thing I would have loved more is if it would have been longer. I wasn't read for it to end.
