    Slater Carson might be a businessman by trade, but he's a cowboy at heart - and he knows the value of a hard day's work under the hot Wyoming sun. So when he sees troubled teen Ryder heading down a dangerous path, he offers the boy a job on the ranch he shares with his two younger brothers. And since Ryder's temporary guardian is the gorgeous new resort manager, Grace Emery, Slater figures it can't hurt to keep a closer eye on her as well.

    I couldn't believe how monotonous this story was, the voice made it impossible to go any further than the third chapter. The storyline was weak, and over complicated. I really wanted to like it, but couldn't make it past the fourth chapter without continuing to roll my eyes every few seconds.

    There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit. Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous

    Story

    The knitting in the city series has been entertaining, but until I came across Ashley's and Drew's story I was slowly starting to be less interested, wondering if Quinn and Janie were going to top off the series.

    This story not only ignited my desire to continue the series, but sparked my desire to go back and read some of the old classics that I haven't touched in a while. E. E. Cummings, Lord Byron and even Nietzsche in small doses.

    The feeling and emotion tied in with the story line of a family losing their mother mixed with multiple subplots and of course, our heroines slow burning romance was brilliant. Penny Reid out did herself with this 1st person narrative. The story had me smiling, laughing, crying and swooning along the way. And unlike the past few books, Ashley was written as a character who wasn't constantly in the kind of self doubt that makes you roll your eyes in disbelief. Instead, it kept me fully engaged and was well paced. I especially enjoyed when Ashley would step out of the book and let us, the reader, know just how ridiculous she had acted as if she were here telling us the story herself.

    I've been renewed to go on the the next book in the series. Here's to finally getting to know Fiona and Greg!

    Story

    Wow.... I'm stunned the editor didn't negate all the repetitive phrasing and overall cheesy descriptive narrative. I ended up listening to it in 1.25 speed because I couldn't imagine going through a whole 12 hours. Usually I like Antony Ferguson, but he needs a new female impression. I fell asleep at chapter 31, woke up at chapter 50, and didn't even need to go back to know what had happened. Slightly entertaining, mostly I listen to it because I subscribe to the Romance package and didn't have much to lose besides time.

    Story

    I hate to be cruel to our sex, but this female geared novela took every single twist in the book, and put it together with some of the most absurd language I've ever imagine being published. I'm so sorry to say it, because I really wanted to like it, the beginning of the story opened well which is why I gave it 2 stars. Every character in the book was super stereotypical. And if I heard him say she was "a woman who needed to be kept" one more time, I was going to vomit. The fact that he actually called her dumb to her face multiple times was maddening enough. he was a teacher fascinated by physics physics for God's sake!
    I don't really understand why it was under sizzling in the romance Factor, there was only one real sex scene, and it wasn't that great. I think my favorite part of the story, was the dogs.
    The author herself read it in a style that would have been meant for a children's fairy tale which made it 10x worse to listen too. Possibly if she had a less rushed, less motherly like voice, and practiced her male voices, she might better win me over. But overall the production was rushed and her inflections were all wrong. It made me feel like Opie and Papa Smurf were battling it out for her "love".
    the end, was also nothing to brag about. If you are listening to it for free, go ahead it's vaguely entertaining. However if you're considering paying even a dollar for it, I'd recommend looking somewhere else! This is something I would expect to pay a quarter for at a garage sale. Nothing more.

    I thought it was a pretty typical suspense novel, however I'll give the writer props for keeping us on our toes and the narrator for doing a decent job at Women's voices. I've listened to it twice now and it's definitely an enjoyable time.

    Story

    To start off with, if you are a woman go somewhere else. This book is 100% geared towards men. There is no mention of woman besides the ability to attract them, maybe this is due to Spartans being a males dominated society. Still, I think the author could have made it unisex oriented.
    The narration is also very comical. The narrator is pumped about the message, but at times I couldn't help but laugh while listening.
    If you are a man looking for self discipline training, there are definitely some good tips that can help. But as a lady, there's not much we can use unless you want to pick and choose.
