When retired Special Op Brandon Reed comes back to Chelwood, he doesn't expect to find his high school buddy Wade Gardener still living in town with the woman Brandon used to date, Kimber Williams. It hurts him to see that they have taken back their love for him and given it to each other.
Kimber doesn't know why Brandon deserted her as a teenager, and although madly in love with Wade, she has never gotten over Brandon. But Wade has his own issues to deal with. He knows the real reason why Brandon left town so suddenly, but he's never confessed his true feelings for Brandon to the woman he adores, or even to himself.
Just as Brandon begins to fear there is no room in their hearts for him, the past comes back to haunt him, and he is thrown into a desperate struggle to save their lives.

I'm a sucker for the reuniting of old love, so it's no wonder I loved COWBOY LOVE ON HOLD so much. Add a great plot, some intense action, and plenty of sizzling sex to that rekindled love and we've definitely got a hit.
Brandon, and almost-retired Special Ops soldier comes home after his mom gets sick and sees the two people he loves most in the world, Kimber and Wade. What makes it worse is that Kimber and Wade now obviously love each other instead of him. Years away haven't faded his feelings for them, but he's not sure that they will accept him after leaving all those years ago, especially after the way things ended between him and Wade. However, he's willing to do what he has to do to get the people he loves back, even if that means rehashing old wounds.
They've finally got a change to be together once old truths come out, but when Brandon's dangerous job comes home to his loves, he has to fight to protect the life he never thought he'd have.
Wow, this book was fantastic. It had a lot of emotion in it, and that was the first thing that hooked me. I really felt for all three of them: Kimber, Brandon and Wade. I felt like this was a situation where the things that happened occurred because the three of them were young and unsure of themselves. I couldn't be mad at anyone for what happened. It just was. But it made hope for their relationship to work out that much harder.
The plot was also gripping. It had suspense and action that kept the fact that Brandon was a Special Ops soldier front and center in our minds, and also made the overall story more interesting.
COWBOY LOVE ON HOLD also had a ton of hot lovin'. There was m/f/m sex, m/f, m/m and m/m/f. I thought that although there was tons of sex, it was about the reconnection that the trio was trying to form. But nevertheless, it was steamy, erotic and extremely sexy.
So, a sweet love story surrounded by a good story and smokin' hot sex. And having a woman get two sexy cowboys, what could be better? I read this book in one sitting because it ensnared me from start to finish. This is the start of a new series by Ms. Ryder and I cannot wait see what is going to happen next!
