The plot of the story was really interesting. I love the way everything unfolded until the last few chapters. I wish the author would go back and re-think the resolution of the conflict. It was much too simplistic and rushed.
It almost felt like someone handed a high school student a well written story up until the arc where the resolution was to begin. The student just wanted to quickly end the story tying everything into a neat bow using the fewest words possible. What you end up with is a completely implausible ending. :(
Someone was obviously on a deadline! Too bad...it had real promise.
This is a awesome and amazing book, so much so I was up listening until 3am. Just had to know what else was going to happen. Simply love this book. .
I first read this on October 15, 2015 and recently got into a book-funk so I decided to read something I’d already read, and listen to it since I found it one audible. And I enjoyed it as much the second time as I did the first, ((except for the listening part.))
Everything about this book was wonderful, ((except the listening part.)) Without all the angst and misunderstandings you get in most love stories. It was about a love that was a long time coming. I just loved Cam and Sydney, but boy, what an a$$ and a nice person Cam’s mother was, both at the same time. I liked Sydney’s friend Luka, too. And Tommy and Boyd got just what they so richly deserved. I love to read about greedy-a$$ men getting what’s coming to them.
There was a little sexual tension in this book and some terrific sex scenes. There was swearing and the F-bomb was released 5 times.
I got this book through KU.
As to the narration: Pretty terrible. She couldn’t make up her mind whether she wanted to make the men sound a little manly or just said the heck with it and let them sound like girls, so 95% of the time Cam WASN’T manly sounding at all. And with Deputies Nick, Byron and Dean the narrator didn’t care at all, they all sounded like girls, all the time, as did Tommy and his father Boyd. With it being narrated in 2016 I thought it would be fine since enough readers complain about the narrators sounding to manly for females or too feminine for men and they would try harder. I guess I was wrong. One other reviewer said this, “Gwendolyn's voice is amazing and so "clean and crisp" as she changes her voice for each character. Her tones were so sexy during the steamy parts! Each character she portrays was totally believable.” Ummmm, NO! She never changed her voice for anyone and when Cam and Sydney made love it sounded just like 2 women.
I gave her 2 stars because she did read with a little emotion.
I am a working woman in a man's world but it's ok because I really love being around men !! I've been happily married for 48 years!
This story is filled with all of the qualifications of a romance and mystery story. A "hard luck" cowboy has lost almost everything he owns and is struggling to hang on to the family farm. Someone is out to get him off the ranch so that they can turn it into a golf resort. Cam is searching for a way to save his farm when he meets up with his old flame. He is not happy at first since he finds out she is going to marry the son of the man who wants to steal his farm from him. Soon things start to turn around and he not only finds the woman of his dreams is now available but also comes into enough money to save the farm.
I really enjoyed the way the two leading characters kept running into each other and how they finally managed to get together and find love and passion for each other.
Gwendolyn's voice is amazing and so "clean and crisp" as she changes her voice for each character. Her tones were so sexy during the steamy parts! Each character she portrays was totally believeable.

I hope to hear more from Gwendloyn. This is the 3rd book I have listened to and each one is fantastic.
I received this audio book in exchange for a review.
