In Tender Root Montgomery Long seemed singularly focused on fun. The middle child he only had one real duty, taking care of his younger sister Melody. But he’d failed and as the months tick on without her attacker behind bars he’s itching to exact revenge on the man who almost took his baby sister’s life.
Harper Maxwell’s year had gone from bad, to worse. With an ex husband looming around making her life miserable, the chance to get away to Mexico for a case made sense. As the attorney assigned to the Long case she was set to serve extradition paperwork and hopefully catch a few rays at the beach before heading back home.
If only that could have happened, with threats on Harper’s life can she find safety or even love in the arms of a man who never commits and worse yet may only be a rebound? Or will she become the next tragedy that could destroy the Long Ranch?

The Last Laugh, The Long Ranch book 3 by Michel Prince, narration by Mark Neely
I was given this audio book for an honest review by the author.
Mark’s voice was a great pick for Monty the main male character. I thought he did a great job bringing the character to life. I did think his was missing a bit when he voiced the female characters and at time he seemed rushed to deliver the dialogue. I was however happy with the narration of the story at the end,
The love story in this book is Monty and Harper. I have not read the other 2 books in the story. I didn’t seem lost or confused as the back story was told in away that gave me the information I needed for this story. I will say it seems the OVER ALL ARK of the story is in all 3 books. Like I said, I didn’t feel like /I missed anything but if you can’t stand to read out of ore you might want to start with #1.
Monty, Monty, Monty……he is the reformed town manwhore. He likes the ladies, and the ladies like him. LOL The husbands however, are not fans of his…I mean I get it right???
Monty is looking to find the man who beat up a family member when he sees a beautiful woman on the beach. A delicious one-night stand later and he sees her again, except this time he is in handcuffs annnnd not the fun kind.
Harper is a DA and she is DONE with her crooked boss and her POS ex-husband who doesn’t seem to understand he is an EX not current. She goes to Mexico to get the guy she is after and BOOM meets Monty.
The couple keep “crashing” into each other. Monty catches feelings and isn’t a fan of this. He also isn’t a fan of just being “Man Meat” for his woman. Harper is so confused by Monty, but she is not looking for love at all. Been there , done that and still has the ring to prove it.
A few explosions, death threats, run in with ex’s and a terrible mother has this couple really struggling to be together.
I liked the couple and did enjoy the journey they took. Chapter 12 had me laughing so hard annnnd then freaking out a bit!!
