I have enjoyed listening to this book. It was a good read. I would recommend this book
Two more realistic characters would have made the book better. The male character (Cooper) was over the top angry and chauvinistic and the female character (Rusty) was over the top perfect and unrealistically naive. Neither character was remotely believable.
Yes, because I liked other novels she has written.
She did the best she could with the terrible characters she had to portray.
My reaction was disappointed and bored.
I expected some cheese factor when I purchased this book, but it is so over the top that I couldn’t help but make fun of the lines aloud when I was reading it. I seriously had to force myself to get through this book. I’m relieved it is over! I have read many of Sandra Brown’s books before; all I can say is this one fell wildly short of the mark.
this was good in it was mindless fluff for a road trip. The girl in trouble then rescued by handsome man who is a jerk until he see's her for who she is. Trouble from to mencing mountain men and rescue the end
was brain fluff
all the same
a twist of the traditional plot
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Sandra opens with a description of this classic core romance. If you love her current works, this is not it. S.B. first wrote as a romance writer with her stories having a H.E.A.E.
Cooper our hero, makes you want to go camping in the great outdoors.
when Cooper protects Rusty from raunchy father and son.
this is a classic I have re read in hard copy. Joyce Bean voice is a bit deeper in this recording than her 2008 reads and she is JUST wonderful in this book.
Joyce reads S.B. Witness and is fantastic. Try her read of Linda Howards Cry No More both are not to be missed.
I truly disliked this book. Truly. I wanted to like it but the voice used for the female lead drove me crazy. The plot itself was good but I couldn't help twitching at some of the gender role stuff. That might be a problem with the date the book was originally written, though. I can swallow that difference, I just can't handle hours of Ms. Bubblegum in my ear.
Tell us about yourself!
It was a good listen. Story believable. Good characters. Would read another Sandra Brown book.
Not for a long time, at least until I forget how bad this one was.
The characters were just plain unlikeable and really unbelievable. The female is basically a blank slate, undeveloped, unremarkable except that she is good looking. Apparently her looks are her only desirable quality to the male character, who is an over-bearing jerk that basically is willing to give up years of heart ache and resentment because he likes her boobs.
She really didn't have much to work with, the story was that bad. The two villain's backwoods accents were overdone and annoying.
I would advise to go back and redevelop the characters that are there. Give Rusty a personality, make Cooper worthy of redemption, tone down the Dad(he would have had some real affection for his daughter).
This is another example of where the sex scenes were more thought out than the characters and story line.
