Publisher's Summary

Surveying the proposed site for a high-end golf course should have been a breeze for spunky landscape architect Sophie Smith. But when this born-and-bred city girl is suddenly - and quite literally - swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy on horseback, she realizes that the country life has some serious (and seriously steamy!) possibilities. That is, until she finds out exactly who her smokin'-hot wrangler really is.

Cowboy and tribal lawyer Jake Lodge is desperately trying to block the development. And if that means playing hardball - and being every inch the shark lawyer - so be it. But Sophie is a distraction he didn't expect. A distraction that makes his blood burn.

Two different worlds. Two opposing sides. And when they finally give in to the exquisite temptation, the consequences will shake the foundations of both of their lives.

I was loving it . . . Until they had sex!

The first time they had sex was a near rape:(((
She told him no THREE TIMES and he kept on going! What the hell?? The third time she said no he slapped her vagina!! At that point, I stopped. Could not go on:(((. I love a well written love scene but not this tripe! For well written erotica try Carly Phillips, Lisa kleypas, and Noelle Adams. This author is going on my do not read list

"Liked It"

If you could sum up Against the Wall in three words, what would they be?

I enjoyed this book. Rebecca Zanetti is becoming a favorite author. I like reading books that have other things going on in addition to the love story. My favorites are the books that have action, drama and romance. They also need to include a good amount of sex. Romance books that don't have good sex, to me, are boring so I usually try to avoid those that don't. This book did pretty well covering all my requirements.This book was missing a little of the drama/action that I like which is why I only gave it four stars instead of 5. It was never boring though. I don't want to give anything away so I won't go into why. It's really not important because this is a good book and definitely worth a credit to listen to. I will definitely be looking to hear the stories for the other brothers.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Jake. You could just feel the sex appeal coming from him. He has a strong personality. Dominant without being overbearing with a good amount of sexy and romantic thrown in too.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I think this is the first book I've listened to that's been narrated by Ann Marie Lee. She did a pretty good job. Some narrators can ruin a book and others can make a "so-so" book really good. I'd say she falls in the middle. Like a lot of female readers, she struggles some with the male voices. They all tend to be pretty much the same. The way she drug out the word "sunshine" all the time kind of bugged me but not so much that it took away from the book. I would definitely listen to other books read by her. Her acting is really pretty good.

Huge Mistake of a Purchase

What disappointed you about Against the Wall?

To be fair to the author, I only listened to 45 minutes before jumping ship. I didn't like the narrator in the least. I could hear every intake of breath and it got on my last nerve!

What was most disappointing about Rebecca Zanetti’s story?

The awful narration aside, after 45 minutes I could tell this was gonna be another story that didn't have anything to say that I wanted to hear. Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I've met a few real MEN that I've been attracted to, but never have I been blinded or obsessed by their muscles to the point I went completely stupid within 10 minutes of meeting them. Then again, I've never met George Strait....

How could the performance have been better?

The director should have caught the indrawn breaths ASAP and done whatever was necessary to fix the problem. I don't know if this is training issue that a narrator learns to overcome or an editiing issue. Overall, I feel this narrator's voice is best suited for children and young adult books. I can hear her captivating these audiences in a library setting.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If the listener is looking for weightless fluff and doesn't mind cheesy - go for it.

Any additional comments?

In the introduction to the book the narrator is listed as Heather Smith, not Ann Marie Lee.

Against The Wall

This ahs been very entertaining and enjoyable book. The lady background having suffered so much abandonment in her life was afried when she finally finds someone she loves and want to expend her life. But she is still touching with all the lost and issues of her past.

Not my cup of tea

The male character is obviously a controle freak, who uses sex and sexist attitudes to get what he wants, several times I felt that he was one of those men who would undoubtedly destroy her just to get what he wants.

Cute story but poor narration

This was a bit of a disappointment. The story is pretty good. This is a new series and there is plenty of potential with these characters but the narration was poor. Speeding up the speed hell.

Not my usual pick, but I enjoyed it!

I admit, that Cowboy stories aren’t usually my thing. However, Rebecca Zanetti is absolutely on my list of favorite authors. Therefore, since I already own every other series she has out on Audible, I thought I’d give this series a try.

I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It’s got a sexy alpha male who likes control in the courtroom, lol! Both the Hero and Heroine have emotional scars from experiences, prior to meeting each other. Therefore, there is a little bit of reluctance by both parties before fully committing to each other.

I really can’t wait to listen to Jake’s brothers’ stories. The icing on the cake, I’m getting to experience this series at no additional charge, since this series is included in the Escape Package.

Somewhere middle of the road

No, I do not mean the setting of this book as it is set somewhere in Montana, but my feelings for this are middle of the road. I feel like the story was fair. Things didn’t feel quite pulled together and neatly tied up as I prefer. As for the narration, more middle of the road. The intimate scenes are done well, but there’s at least three and I felt like blushing as I listened to this in my car on my way to and from work over the past week. As I’m not someone accustomed to blushing I think this had more to do with the fact that I typically READ romances, and don’t listen to them, but I have enjoyed less screen time, and I don’t need anymore books in my already three deep bookcases.

Usually love RZ but this one was not for me.

The story line had a lot of interesting and enjoyable characters but the plot was too slow and simple for me. It need a better bad guy. I fast forwarded expecting it to get more interesting but it never did.

Fun Series

This is a great series and very different from her other Paranormal Romance Series. This is a fun contemporary romance series with a Native American bent, centered around one family and their close friends. You will laugh and you will cry.
Stories are worth a credit, narration is excellent. For adults only.

A fully immersive story

I first came across this book in "Chapters", and was thrilled to find an audiobook. The Narrater immerses you in the story and you start feeling each of the character's emotions.

The male lead is so charming and infuriating, it is hard not to fall in love with him. This was such an enjoyable listen, I will definitely be listening to it again.

I'm looking forward to listening to book 2, hoping that Jake and Sophie make some appearance in the second book.
