narration does not match the story

This was an African American romance that sounded nothing like the words on the pages. I highly value the read over audio here. The men sounded like high pitch teen boys awaiting for the change to happen. I was saddened. The story itself was classic Benda Jackson. The Westmorelands find love and happiness again. No the path was not easy but what is that's worth fighting for. Derrenger and Lucia had to get past each other and others to see that love that was lying within reach.

Love the story, but the narrator does not match the characters

I truly enjoy Brenda Jackson's anthologies. So much so that I have looked forward to hearing the books that I've already read come to life through Audible. I don't believe that this narrator was the best selection for this book. I enjoyed the story thoroughly, in fact it's a story that I love and have read multiple times. I hope that with future books from African American authors, an African American narrator is considered AND used. This story is well known to me, but the characters' voices and intonation presented was off putting.

Just okay

I’m a big fan of Brenda Jackson and have read and listened to many of her books. This one was not my favorite, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it. The narration was painful to listen to. She sounded like a “valley girl” and her male voices sounded like country bumpkins. Nothing like the usual Westmoreland sexiness.

Narrator inappropriate

These characters are African American. The narrator is clearly NOT. Hard to listen to. Disappointing.

OK read

This one seemed to be a bit more predictable than the other Westmoreland story lines.
Although I enjoyed it for the most part.....the middle of the story became a bit boring and the end was a bit too simple and again... predictable.
Nevertheless..... I still like reading about those Westmoreland men, especially the Denver and MONTANA ones. Now..... REALLY looking forward to knowing more about those OUTLAW men!

Voice could be better

The book was great but I didn't like the voice over actor. The voice in my opinion did not go with any of the characters.

It’s okay

Brenda Jackson uses a formula for writing, so this is no different. This review is for the narration. I don’t understand why a white woman is narrating when this is about black cowboys so to speak. It throws me off and that made it hard to get into for me.

The store was good but not the performance

i love the series but feel that the performance of the character accents were awful. You have the men with horrible welcome to Mayberry accent along with a high pitched Barbie valley girl squeal, It took a lot away from the story.
