✱✱Book Review✱✱ Right Move: A Gay Cowboy Romance (Clean Slate Ranch Book 6) by A.M. Arthur

Opposites attract in this sexy, slow-burn romance, the next installment in A.M. Arthur’s fan-favorite Clean Slate Ranch series.

Levi Peletier is settled—for now. With his life on the rodeo circuit reined in, he’s content doing trick riding demos for tourists at Clean Slate Ranch and spending his off-hours with three finicky felines. It’s a life he’s grateful for, one that keeps his heart safe.

George Thompson couldn’t be less like the ruggedly sexy Levi. A onetime figure skating star, he’s hung up his skates to live in introverted anonymity in San Francisco. An effort to shake up his regular routine finds him at Thanksgiving dinner, dude ranch style, and he immediately falls in love with the gorgeous view—the wide-open spaces and big blue sky aren’t bad, either.

The country cowboy and the stay-put city boy strike up an unlikely friendship that blossoms into something more. But getting attached is a bad idea. Because the open road is calling to Levi, and it’s a call George can’t imagine answering. When the past catches up to them, this odd couple will have to decide if a future together is worth fighting for.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Clean Slate Ranch series has been iffy for me with most landing somewhere in the fair to middlin range. Until Right Move. A cowboy and a former figure skater - that's a combination I had to read, and I just loved Levi and George. Like the other books in the series, this one is a slow burn, a really slow burn, but it works for this couple. George is so introverted that Levi pretty much had to move slowly and take things at George's pace, and I loved that he was perfectly okay with that. Both of these guys have messy pasts - completely different kinds of messes, but things they've had to work through. Levi seems to have come out the other side of his own problems, at least for the most part, and while they may not have much in common in their lives, Levi is pretty darn perfect as a sounding board and gentle encourager for George. All things considered, I think it's safe to say this is my favorite Clean Slate Ranch couple. I will add that this book takes place during Thanksgiving - Christmas, so a lot of past couples from the series pop in and out. With that comes the occasional catch up paragraph, but even if you haven't read the earlier books, you'll be able to keep up with what's going on with this couple and their ready made family of spoiled felines.
