Publisher's Summary

Andrea Bartell is an international model whose jet-set lifestyle has kept her from her Texas home for five years. Noah Courtland is the man she left behind after a bitter breakup. He's in charge of her beloved Bridleton, and it's at the root of their emotional warfare.

Neither wants to rekindle the flames of their relationship, yet the desire hasn't diminished. It burns hotly, forcing them to deal with their pain and heartache. The unveiling of old promises and secrets might save their relationship, or it could destroy any chance of a future.

another great book

Becky Barker did a fantastic job of story telling in this book. I enjoyed the banter back and forth between the characters Andrea and Noah.
Johnny Peppers was a good one to do the narrating of this book.
This was the second book I listened to by Becky, I was gifted the second book then went out and bought this book and the third in this series, keep up the great work you two. I will be buying more of these audio books in the future and suggest you do as well.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the first book in the Bridleton series by Becky Barker. Andrea Bartell in an international model which has kept her away from her Texas home, Bridleton for the past five years. She left the love of her life Noah Courtland, after her sister’s death. She has received a message from her aunt telling her she needs to get home. She gets home to find out there is some financial troubles and they may have to sell the family ranch to Noah. She is determined to save the ranch even if she has to deal with her feelings and past issues with Noah.

The narrator Johnny Peppers did a great job with this book, and was very easy to listen to. He did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting.

If you are looking for a book with a great story, and characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Got better and better.

Would you consider the audio edition of Bridleton to be better than the print version?

I hadn't read the print version, but hearing the book keeps the story and characters more prominent in my mind.

What does Johnny Peppers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voice of Johnny Peppers added to the "cowboy feel" of the book. His voice makes you think tight jeans, hairy chests and dusty cowboy hats.

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

There is a strong family theme in this book. At times it's very sweet, but it also has the anticipation of a sexual relationship that keeps you wanting more.

Any additional comments?

I really wasn't too sure I was going to like the book when I first started listening, but I found myself very anxious to get back to it every time I put it down. I really felt like it just got better and better. This was my first Becky Barker book, but I'm definitely going to go back for more!

at odds over a truth but a lie

Noah and Andrea had something meaningful at one point in time. Something changed all that and now things are tenuous at best. Fir Andrea coming back home may have been the best thing for her, but the memories may chase her away. Noah held on to his desire for the land and the woman, but he would not just give in. I found a few holes in information. Left me wanting more.

Narration was okay but a bit confusing at time. Not always a clear gender ringing through. Hope for more on follow up.

A love story that binds you

This is a great great love listen. My first from from the author and the narrator . The author knows how to make you pull your hair out , shaking your head . The story also has you rallying for the couple and love how the family member that wants to see a happy ending to the couple .

Hero is Noah. Heroine is Andrea .
Both Noah and Andrea have had feelings, have loved , each other since they were knee high. They both lived in a small town in Texas . Andrea wanted more from her life then living on her great aunt ranch and seeing her life going nowhere. She decides to get up and more away for school and to make something of herself. Usually it’s the male that does that but in this story it’s the heroine. Yers later she gets a call to go back to the ranch , not only her but her family home . Her great aunt needs help with the ranch .
Once she gets back to the ranch sees Noah living on the ranch , Andrea can’t believe his Gull , Noah is living on the ranch and practaclly running it . Andrea thinks that Noah want the ranch for himself and trying to trick her great aunt into giving it to him . Her great aunt tells Andrea that she needs to step up money wide and handle the responsibilities or she is selling her shares of the ranch to Noah
After a while Andrea sees that Noah goes beyond what is needed and called for to run the ranch

Meanwhile Noah wants what he used to have with Andrea . Noah wants Andrea I. His arms , his life and bed. . He hopes she sees that he is a reliable man and he will never let her down and will make Andrea happy .

How does Noah convince Andrea to go back to him for good Grab it and see

The narrator is good , it was my first listen to him , the voice was strong , clear and steady .

saving the ranch & rediscovering love...

Model Andrea Bartell has returned home, after a 5yr hiatus, at the request of her aunt. Their family ranch is failing and Andrea and all of her siblings must pitch in if they don't want their aunt to sell controlling interest to the ranch manager, Noah Courtland. There is no way in he!! Andrea is going to let that happen! After all, Noah is the same man who broke her heart and the reason that she has stayed away all of these years. Noah isn't all that happy to see Andrea either...she refused to believe his side of the story after a terrible accident that killed her sister...she left HIM broken hearted and alone. That said, everyone wants the ranch to succeed so they will have to work together to make it happen. Will the sparks between Noah and Andrea become a stumbling block to saving the ranch? What about their respective 'love interests'? Is there an HEA for the pair? Great story and I look forward to the other siblings' stories.
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Unlikable Hero ..and Marginally Likable Heroine

Andrea (Drea) is a fashion model who left her Texas home and her ‘love’ Noah on a misunderstanding. She didn’t return for 5 yrs until called back.
I can’t say that I cared for any of the characters..and really found nothing romantic or appealing in the hero Noah. Andrea was an idiot in many ways and Noah, in my mind, wanted everything his own way and was unwilling to give..he was hurt so basically he didn’t care for anything but his attraction for Andrea, although he had relations with other women..but in my mind she deprived herself for him. I don’t care for stories where it’s expected men will have relations but the women love the man do much she won’t.
Narrator was good..he helped me dislike the hero with his appropriate characterization of the hero.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review
