Wyoming Fierce | [Diana Palmer]

Wyoming Fierce

Ranch owner Cane Kirk lost more than his arm in the war. He lost his way, battling his inner demons by challenging any cowboy unfortunate enough to get in his way. No one seems to be able to cool him down, except beautiful Bodie Mays. Bodie doesn’t mind saving Cane from himself, even if he is a little too tempting for her own peace of mind. But soon Bodie’s the one who finds herself in need of rescuing - only, she’s afraid to tell Cane what’s really going on. How can she trust someone as unpredictable as this fierce cowboy? When her silence only ends up getting her into even deeper hot water, it’s up to Cane to save the day.

    "What a Treat"

    Ok, this story really rocked me, and I don't know if it was the fantastic telling of the story, or the characters in the story or that sexy, mouth watering, heat in your pants Phil Gigante narrating, needless to say I listened to this story twice.
    Cane Kirk is a Veteran, who has lost part of his arm, and has been rejected by a couple of females because they "didn't want to get involved with a cripple." This has made him surly, rude, and angry. He frequently ties one and goes on a rampage and the only one who he responds to is Bodie. Well Bodie has issues of her own and when she asks Cane for monetary help he takes it wrong, and goes off on her, leading her to do the only thing she can to save her family.

    Don't miss out on this one it was really good, and especially with Phil narrating and Natalie Ross producing. This is one hot couple that can really tell a tale. This two did the last 3 books in the Fever series, by Karen Moning. They really bought the books alive.

    "Not good !!"
    Any additional comments?

    "Wyoming Fierce" is one of her few books I've listened to that i did not like the male character from beginning to end. I did not see him as redeemable. It's hard to believe that the female character could forgive him and why should she? I disliked them both, felt no real connection to her on his part and no woman should be that much of a victim to make it work. Very Preachy. :(

    I enjoy many types of books and am always looking for new authors to read and listen too. I enjoy reading the reviews and adding my own from time to time.

    Story
    "Tormented hero finds love despite angry attitude"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wyoming Fierce to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the book so I can not compare. Long book so easier than holding in hand for many hours.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the interaction of all the characters in this book. Explosive many times between Cane and Bodie's characters though there was tenderness of course. Lots and lots of misunderstanding. Cane is so hard headed and angry most of the time that he causes a lot of pain to those who care about him. Bodie really deserves better from him but in the end of course it does work out.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    I would say Cane as he does his anger and confusion so well. I also enjoy the performance of his brothers.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    More than one actually and would be hard to pick which one made the most impression on me. What happens when she does the only thing she thinks she can to save her home from her stepfather (real creep) is intense and moving. Cane of course manages to make a mess of this as well as other times he misreads what is going on around him. Stubborn, stubborn man.


    Any additional comments?

    Read or listen to the book. It is good and worth the time or credit.

    Story
    "Could not put this one down, It's a Hit with me."

    I have recently started to love Diana Palmer's books. I love her strong male characters with a few flaws to make them more realistic. I also enjoy her female characters who are intelligent, strong women who in turn get recused and do some emotional recusing of their own. Now just add in a great story line, villains that you absolutely love to hate and want to kill, kill, (that would be Bodie's slimy perverted step-father) and a sexy male lead (and that would be Cane Kirk). Caine is real hero because he has sacrificed to save others. As a result he lost part of his arm and is not coping very well. All this equals a great romance. Bodie is an adorable your woman who is coming into her own with the responsibilities of the world on her young shoulders. My heart aches for this character and cheered for her accomplishments. Wow, this was a great book and it totally took me for surprise. I was not expecting it to be this good. The icing on the cake is the narrator.

    Phil Gigante can discuss a rock for me and make it sexy. This man's voice is liquid sex. He has his own fan club, he that good. Phill really added to this book in my opinion. Not to mention that another favorite narrator is the director for this audio book (and that would be Natalie Ross). I am telling you Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross teamed together is the prescription for a great audio experience. Even better if these two actually are teamed as narrator and narrator vs. narrator and director. Having Natalie and Phil as narrators on this book would have been the only think that could make this one better in my opinion.

    "Don't Waste a Credit on this One!"
    Any additional comments?

    Right off the bat I knew I wasn't going to like this book. It started with a virginal girl, Bodie, having to retrieve a drunken Cane from a bar because his own brothers cant do it themselves. It seems Cane only responds to Bodie when he is off on a drunken tangent. Then it was further downhill from there. It seemed the nicer Bodie was to him, being she loves him the bigger an ass he was to her all the way up to the end. Geez! This is the second book of the Wyoming men series but it just was not at the level the first book Wyoming Tough was. Furthermore, the narrator did an ok job with the male characters but did a dreadful job with the female characters. They all sounded like Mrs. Doubtfire.

    "Wonderfull Read"

    I've always enjoyed Diana Palmer and this book really does prove what a great writer she is.
    I like the way her female characters are strong willed. Definetly worth a credit.

    "Disgusting"
    What disappointed you about Wyoming Fierce?

    I thought the premise was interesting, but about 10 minutes into the book I was cringing and soon I felt ill. Despite that, I listened for almost 3 hours, hoping it would get better. Initially it was the Republican politics in the book that was making me uncomfortable, so I decided to push through and try to be open minded. There is a lot of political beliefs that are stated. There were also a few things that made me think this was written in the 80s, not months ago.

    Spoilers to follow:

    This is the first Diana Palmer book I've read, so I don't know much about her writing, but soon I was thoroughly disgusted. Within the first hour, every woman in the book but Bodie, the main character is portrayed as a whore. Then, Bodie is accused of being a whore by the man she apparently loves (who is a violent alcoholic, over 10 years older than her, and deeply resents women). Then Bodie is extorted and sexually harassed by her step-father and his friend. Luckily, she's saved by the main love interest and his brothers before she can be raped for money on camera!

    All of this is sprinkled with an almost liberal sensibility ("even if I were gay, I wouldn't be ashamed of it", "why can't the government provide us with the help we need", etc) but they were put forth in such a clumsy, backwards way. Bodie is supposed to be a strong, independent character who dreams of getting a PhD in archeology, an admirable dream, but then she also states "why does every woman have to be a high powered executive, or a top politician? Isn't having a family enough?" Pretty much every belief in this book is hypocritical and maddening. Rape shouldn't be used willy-nilly as "character development", or a chance for the woman to be saved by her "hero". If Palmer is going to write about heavy subjects like abuse, maybe she shouldn't demean her characters quite so much by using it as a writing tool.


    What could Diana Palmer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have been a better feminist to her main character.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was okay. He has a nice voice, but his "voices" creeped me out.

    "Love the story hate the politics"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator and lose the politics. The book is full of messages on controversial topics. I read to escape reality not learn one side of a controversial topic. The author is fond of saying the books and movies these days are strong on intimacy and weak on relationships. I believe this series is strong on politics and weak weak on interactions between characters. Great base story, strong potential, ruined by an agenda.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

    Great male voices but I really did not like the female voices at all.

    Story
    "my first ever audio book..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    my favourite books of all time are horror and action BUT i love light hearted romance novels/chic lit too and because my reading is interfering with how many hours i put in at work (self employed home worker) I thought i would start listening to my books whilst i work and I loved it. This is a nice book though slightly repetitive at times. I do prefer my main leads to be less pure and godly but I really did enjoy it over all. I can honestly say I laughed so hard i snorted a few times, very inelegant I know lol I spent much of the time imagining what the guy who read this must have been thinking during some parts of the book. I can honestly say I prefer to read the book myself so i can set the ambiance and tone of voice myself but this is a niche that I am sure I will be spending a lot of money on - I have just purchased the next one in the series :D


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    its a romance novel so slightly predictable but thats not a bad thing - its the reason i read romance novels


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I think he is extremely good at his job a few times his tone of voice didnt reflect the emotion or tone suggested by the writing but thats just me being overly picky.
