    "Cute Story"

    Pretty basic western romance. Good characters, a splash of humor - not a whole lot of steam in the romance department, but a good story nonetheless.

    "All I Need Is You"

    This is a western romance the way it should be, and the narration couldn't have been more enjoyable.

    "Enjoyable Western"

    A western with a splash of romance. For the most part, I like this story. There were just a few things here and there that could have been done differently.

    Story
    "Narrator hurt the story."

    Parts were fun, but I was annoyed with the no-one-says-how-they-feel-big-misunderstanding.

    The first half was fun watching Casey, age 17, as a bounty hunter. Men think she’s a boy because she’s tall and wears men’s clothes. They call her Kid. She’s a fast draw. We don’t watch her hunt and catch outlaws, but we are told that she caught several. Most of the danger is when bad guys come to rob or kill her and she has to deal with them. And then the main part of the story is she and Damian travel together to find Henry who killed Damian’s father. During this journey they fall in love. But it lacked passion and chemistry.

    I feel like the author was following a recipe. Put in a bunch of things that sounded good and called it done. There was no depth. Nothing special. But I enjoyed a lot of it. It was an ok way to pass time - until the separation. They both love each other, but each one thinks the other does not. No one says how they feel. They have sex twice, yet they each thinks the other doesn’t want them. There’s a lot of internal pondering and anguish about he/she doesn’t love me. They separate and are miserable.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR - Sandra Burr.
    She reads like she’s in a hurry. She doesn’t pause when she should. The worst thing was her voice for Damian. She lowered her voice in a way that made him sound weird, wooden, and constipated – and the emotional interpretations were off. It did not feel like Damian had interest or desire for Casey. His voice was monotone. This was not a sexy sound. Some female narrators can do a sexy man, but not Ms. Burr.

    Narrative mode: 3rd person.
    Genre: western historical romance.

    "Entertaining"

    Johanna Lindsey is one of my favourite romance authors, and this book did not disappoint. Her writing is as good as always, with well-rounded characters, an interesting plot and plenty of funny and witty dialogs. Casey and Damien are perfect for each other and it’s refreshing to see that, for once, the male hero is the one in need of help. Of course, there are some small issues as well. One cannot help but wonder at the length of time it took for him to realise that Casey is, in fact, a woman. Also, the language is not necessarily in keeping with the times. But as I do not think this is meant to be historically accurate in the first place, I do not mind it. All in all, it’s a very enjoyable listen and I cannot wait for my new credits to arrive so I can purchase another of her books :)
