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.
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.
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.
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!
