Publisher's Summary

Second chances aren’t always easy. Sometimes, it takes some rough love.

Bruce Tannen is better known by his nickname Brutal, because once upon a time, he was a monster on the football field. Now, he’s a farmhand on what used to be his family’s land, and change is all around him.

A new family, new expectations, and even new friends. It’s all just fine by him until he runs into the one woman to ever hold his heart. The past comes back with a wallop of a tackle that even he can’t take.

Allyson left him a lifetime ago, but she’s the only thing that’s ever felt right...in his arms, in his heart, in his life. Something’s different, though. She’s a shadow of her former self, and he wonders what could’ve dulled her shine. He can help fight her demons to bring back that sunny smile he used to bask in, but should he?  

Allyson Meyers knew who she was and where she was going, but a wrong turn years ago took her on a journey she never imagined. Not even in her worst nightmares. It was ugly, but she’s stronger now for the one person who matters: her son, Cooper.  

Being a single mother is a burden she’s grateful to bear alone until she sees a pair of all-too-familiar broad shoulders and dark, knowing eyes that remind her of who she once was.   

Bruce was the one she'd left behind, the path she should’ve taken. It’s too bad you can’t rewrite history. But if she’s brave enough, maybe they could create a new future?

Fabulous 2nd Chance at life and love!!!

This is definitely a fantastic story about starting over. This story has intrigue, and is a heartwarming romance. I absolutely loved listening to these two phenomenal narrators. The narrator's do a fabulous job with the characters and the voices of each of the characters. They definitely put a lot of emotions and enthusiasm into the characters. As always Tor Thom has a way of sounding like a rough and sexy cowboy. I always love listen to him. Carly Robins has a sweet voice. this is the first time I have listen to her and I have to say I will be looking for more stories that she narrates.

Loved, loved, loved!

I absolutely loved this eagerly awaited book! I was definitely not disappointed. If you loved the Bennett boys series, you will love this one too! Bruce was my favorite Tannen, and it was awesome to get a better look at him and his past. Tor Tom was the perfect narrator for Bruce too, especially his accent. He sounded exactly as I imagined Bruce would. Carly Robins was new to me, and she did a fantastic job also - lots of emotion. Loved seeing more of the Bennett’s, including Mama Louise and the girls, and I can’t wait for Brody and Bobby’s stories! It was very nice to see how it worked out with the “combined ranch/farm” (and family) too!

This book and audiobook is amazing!!

Nothing better than the Tannen brothers, Bennett brothers, their women and Mama Louise!! Lauren Landish delivers another great book! Bruce and Allyson.... second chance love... just perfect!! Bruce is just a working man. Allyson is back home and when they reconnect.... wow!! She’s a mom now. Her sweet son is her priority. As Bruce goes to help with his football team, he tries to not want Allyson but their history draws them both in. Allyson has walls up and Bruce wants to tear them down. This is an amazing story of family and love and fighting for what you want!! It brings incredible characters, amazing chemistry and real family!!! The narration for this books is so well done. Tor Thom was perfect as Bruce!! Incredible!! And Carly Robins gave all the feels as Allyson!! Reading this book was fabulous and listening added so much more!!

Second chances

Rough Love gives us Bruce "Brutal" Tannen. The large hunk of a man known for his temper on and off the football field. With everything the Tannen's have gone through lately Bruce keeps to himself and is a quiet man. When he is driving through town and sees a scuffle between some young boys playing football he is drawn to stop and intervene. Little did he know that little act would change his life forever. Allyson has been back in town for a while trying to raise her son the best way she knows how. She finally escaped his father so she is trying to be both parents for him. When he wanted to play football she thought that would be a great idea but little did she know it would also be a good idea for her and their future. Allyson and Bruce have a past and a young boy and football will bring them back together and mend old wounds. This is an amazing story. We get to take a closer look at the Tannen's, we still have the Bennett family interwoven with the Tannen's but everyone is finally settling in to their respective roles in the mixed family. Bruce had a hurtful past and it caused him great pain that he has dealt with for years but when Allyson and her son show back up in his life he finally has the chance for his HEA. Tor Thom and Carly Robins give the perfect western drawl for these two. They brought this story to life. I loved the story and enjoyed the narration from beginning to end. Highly recommend it.

Loved it

Allyson and Bruce had young love, they were each others everything until  Allyson broke Bruce's heart and their future dreams of being together forever. Now 10 years later Allyson is a single mom to Cooper having moved back to her him town. Bruce is still working on the farms like the rest of the tannen boys. Allyson and Bruce meet again when Bruce starts to coach her son's football team. Bruce is still mad at her for breaking his heart, and Allyson is mad at him as well. Will Bruce find out why she broke him? Will they get a second chance at love? Will they get a HEA?

A Powerfully Emotional Romance

I don't think there is anything more enjoyable than an intensely emotional read and this book sure was one. Prepare to have your own heart to be put through the wringer as Bruce and Allyson's story unfolds. You can expect tension that is heavy and thick, chemistry that is hot and steamy and a strong underlying level of sweetness in this angst filled tale. My heart ached for both of the characters in this incredibly moving second chance romance. This audio book features dual narration which is something I always appreciate. I really enjoyed the narrator's voices and I felt that they did a terrific job in bringing the book to life and making it easy to connect with the characters.

Love a great heart warming audio

Lauren Landish wrote another heart warming audio story . All of Lauren stories always deliver a lesson of what people go through. This story has all the emotion , heartbreak, doubt , abuse, , love, family sticking together. It also has building togetherness and confidence, especially to the 3 mail characters. Hero is Bruce . Heroine is Allison and her son Cooper . Alison and Bruce were teenage sweat hearts. A few wrong words tore them apart. Alison had to move on but it tore her apart in more ways then one . Once she moved back home and seeing Bruce it was a double whammy . Bruce needed answers also , he felt betrayed. Tor Thom and Carly Robbins were fantastic. Their performance was spot on . Tor as big sweetheart Bruce made it perfect . Carly as sweet tough as nails Allison made the part realistic. Thank you Lauren for writing another great story

Rough love

Lauren Landish leap frogged from the Bennett boys to Tannen boys flawlessly. Rough love was everything I'd imagine Bruce Tannen to be and more, once his layers were peeled back and exposed his true self I fell a little harder for him. Allison is also a loveable female lead, with her momma bear protectiveness and her good ole southern charm she's a keeper. This was the first audiobook of Tor Thoms I had listened to that he was the leading character, he delivered Bruce perfectly. I've listened to Carly Robin's before and she has such a great range of voices and accents in her arsenal. overall great listen great job Lauren Landish!!!
