I enjoy reading, listening and reviewing. I enjoy blogging. Doing what I enjoy giving feed back in hopes someone will try a new author.
I really liked this story from the sassy women to the hot cowboys who is over confident. Oh the attraction is there big time until he opens his mouth and sticks foot in it. I had to laugh at how over powering he came across and just how this cowboy was put in his place at least for a few minutes. Dallas knows what he knows and yes she will be his for as long as he wants her. Ginnifer said nice, hot, what a body that is until he makes moves on her in an ungentlemanly way and then she said take a hike. This was a very cute and fun read that has the reader shaking their head at the twist these two put on what they want and how they plan on working that out. It is one step forward with two steps back what a nice two step these two have going on.
I really liked Ms. Valliere narration that is after the first few pages she just doesn’t seem comfortable at first but then she really gets into it and brings the characters to life. I loved the emotion she brings to the characters I found myself giving Dallas the evil eye a time or two. For the most part I just said hum let’s see how that works out for you big boy. Yep that is the way I thought it would. I had to laugh shaking my head at him. I did not hear any background noise just a clear, clean and crisp audio that the reader really gets into. There were no places where the volume was higher or lower than any of the other places. If breaks were taken you could not tell. The narrator really pulled off some highly emotional scenes giving them such power and meaning. I really enjoyed her character voices you always knew who was talking and what they were feeling. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the near future.
The author really pulls her reader in with the baiting and head butting of these characters. I really fell in love with them all and can’t wait to listen/read more of this series. The author really has setup the stories for the next few books in this series. You will really be hook on their stories and can’t wait to read them as they come out. Dallas is a hot cocky cowboy who knows how to get to a woman and also how to make them back away. He sure isn’t letting that get in his way, the longer the hunt the sweet the prize. He is very much against this Yoga ranch but does his best to help and stay out of their way. With one sassy sister who knows how to get around her brother to get her way he finds his self knee deep in a mess of women. When things start looking up for this couple something else gets in their way leaving them torn and us guessing at the outcome.
Ginnifer may think he is hot but he has a thing or two to learn about his one liners they just do not work on her. She hates the cute nickname he gives her you are in for a treat to her come back. This is one author that had me laughing out loud as these two chase each other around the ranch either trying to find the other or trying to get away. My heart really went out to her and her need for coffee the author had me wanting to shake the silly cowboy. I loved how caring she was as well as how strong and sassy, she is willing to stand up for herself giving back as good as she gets.
I really enjoyed the supporting characters and the build up for the stories to come. Each one had me shaking my head and laughing out loud at the messes these couples get into. Out of all the characters Dallas’s sister and her ex really touched my heart the most. I can’t wait to read their story. This is a book full of misunderstandings, over cockiness, pain, hurt, needs, wants, demands, passion, lust, and good old down home fun. The author gives you action in more than one way that really is very entertaining. You will find yourself laughing you won’t be able to help yourself as well as giving the evil eye a time or two. I really got invested in the characters and the story which really made this a hard audio to put down. If you looking for a pick me up, need a laugh or just want to have a few minutes to yourself this would be a great story to listen to.
Dawn Brower does a great job of developing characters that you can relate to, and you can't help but want to book a cabin on the ranch in Novak Springs! I can't wait to revisit the cast of characters in Book 2. Her writing style is appealing to listen to, and the story has enough excitement and activity to hold your interest.
In the beginning of the story, Anne Valliere seems removed from the story and the characters. As the story progresses, she brings the female characters to life and makes their personalities heard in her tone and delivery.
Dallas is in for the ride of his life in this very entertaining book. I found myself laughing out loud going ohhhhhhh he gonna pay for that one. A very well rounded storyline yet it gives you hint there may be more books to come with this family. The narration was perfection just pulled you write in. If you want a book that is gonna pull you right in this is it. This is my first audio book written by Dawn Bower and it will not be my last
