She’s his best friend’s sister, but he’s ready to break all the rules…
Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother Zach’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being wrongfully blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.
Jonah is happy to help little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with Zach’s wedding on the horizon and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan. And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off.
Jonah must resist Celia or lose the only true family he’s ever known.
Loved it because I wrote it. Then hated it. Because I wrote it. :) ...more
So when I was offered the chance to read Resisting the Rancher, this was pretty much what went down…
…because I have to confess that Three River Ranch is my favourite series in Entangled’s Bliss line. I am a complete sucker for a man in a Stetson and as Lutherton is home to many, it is one of my f... ...more

Another great book in the series "The Three River Ranch". This was just as good as the first 3 books and I hope that she writes more. Even though these are on the tame side, the author does a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life and making you feel what they are feeling. There is passi... ...more
4 1/2 stars! This was the one in the series I was most looking forward to because when we met Cee Cee Gamble for the first time in His Reluctant Rancher she was the spunky but difficult "little sister." Now in Resisting the Rancher we get to see Celia Gamble as an adult, still spunky but having h... ...more

Resisting the Rancher Roxanne Snopek's fourth book in the Three River Ranch Series is the story of Celi Gamble the new country veterinarian who has a misunderstanding from her past coming back to cause her problems. Celia turns to her brother's friend and long time crush Jonah Clarke for help.
I found Resisting the Rancher to be a fun, cute story. Celia has always had a crush on her brother's best friend, Jonah, but she thinks he views her as just a kid. Of course, the way she dresses doesn't exactly help him view her as a grown woman, but Jonah is attracted to her no matter what she's... ...more
In Resisting the Rancher by Roxanne Snopek, Celia Gamble is in real big trouble. She has just opened her practice as a country veterinarian and is having a bit of a hard time getting people to bring in their animals to her.

Resisting The Rancher by Roxanne Snopek was such a laugh out loud, emotional read that had my attention from the start. Strong character dialogue and many laughable, likeable characters that keep your attention to the story. Celia and Jonah's characters had so much emotional baggage to work throu... ...more
Celia Gamble is all grown up, and opening a vet practice in her home town. Most remember her as the skinny little girl, always trying to catch up with her brothers and their friends. But she's a woman now, with a mistake she made in her past haunting her, and her newly found independence. She has... ...more
I really enjoyed Celia and Jonah's story. Always love an older brother's best friend trope. So much fun! I've read a couple of books by Roxanne Snopek, so I'm not at all surprised that I have fallen in love with yet another one of her stories. The author consistently provides the reader with grea... ...more
I really enjoyed this book! I loved watching Celia become more than a childhood friend to Jonah. A fun and flirty read that I loved!! Roxanne Snopek has delivered yet again! An awesome addition to her Three River Ranch series! ...more
Oh, this one was so much fun! I love older-brother's-best-friend stories (why my parents only gave me a younger brother I will never understand), as well as childhood crushes all grown up and back with a vengeance, so this story was like catnip for me. Or would Beckynip be a better description? E... ...more

Don’t you just hate it when men mess with your life? They lie and are deceitful. Sometimes they only think of themselves and not of the consequences? Well that’s the definition of Celia’s life so far. She was at a point in her life where depression took hold of her soul and wouldn’t let up, beca... ...more
It has been quite some time since I have read a romance novel set in the country. So I guess it was pretty well a no-brainer when this beauty popped up that I agree to read and review it.
The whole romance side of things in this book was quite fulfilling in its story. Two people, Celia and Jonah,... ...more
