Publisher's Summary

Nova Kingsley had a severe case of writer's block. When her friend suggested a trip to the Midwest, the Las Vegas native thought it would be exactly the change of pace she needed. Just a couple of weeks of peaceful, uninterrupted work would get her out of the rut she had found herself in. But that was before she met Colt.

Colt McCormick had retreated to the woods of rural Missouri to start a new life with his dog, Bo. His cabin retreat is all he has, but he does his best to make it his. When he gets a visitor from Las Vegas, he thinks his lucks about to turn around.

The chemistry is palpable, but one woman is determined to have Colt to herself. Will she be able to succeed in driving Colt and Nova apart, or will they do anything for love?

A Man and his dog!

Colt lives in a log cabin in Missouri and rents out parts of his wilderness retreat. When Nova comes to stay with him for a couple of weeks from Las Vegas, life for them both is about to turn around! Kelli Walker has written this story with a little of everything. We have opposites attract, as Colt and Nova come from completely different backgrounds. There is a stalkerish vibe creating some suspense and action as well as passion and self realization. I really enjoyed the story and getting to know Colt and Nova, and Colt's dog Bo! He is a sweetie! With beautiful visual writing, Walker takes us through the cabin and surrounding area and makes the story come alive. Daniel James Lewis does a good job narrating. I found him to be animated and have a lot of expression as he performed. The dual point of view let us know who was speaking, though at times, I found his female voice not as easy to distinguish. His pacing is perfect and he made the story a lot of fun with his style.

Great Storyline. Colt and Nova seemed to be drawn to each other right away. Kelli made the book flow magically.

It's Less than What I Expected.....

I listened to the Audiobook, and this book was just ok. The narration was kind of bland. It seemed to me more like the narrator was only reading the straight copy of the book. I didn't sense any emotion at all. I can only judge from the audio version. There seemed to be too much going on in too short a period of time to do justice to the story. Nova and Colt had a serious case of instalove. Not a big fan of that, especially when Nova experienced major doubts TWICE in the story. I didn't like Nova's reaction to seeing Colt and Angel? Angie? But, I don't appreciate that reaction in any book. I'm being generous because I honestly had no sense of time regarding the timeline, but these people made MAJOR life decisions within a period of 2, count 'em, 2 weeks. If the narration was not going to be on point, then the story needed to be. I thought more would be done with the stalker theme, like Nova would have more than one run in with the woman, maybe meet the friends more than once, or even meet the mom. I wondered what had happened to Angie to make her fall apart and be so desperate and needy. Especially since her lack of attractiveness and unkempt appearance was emphasized each time she appeared in the book. Seemed like there was a possible subplot there just figuring out her situation. Anyhoo, I give this a 2.5 stars. It wasn't sweet, or romantic, suspenseful, or steamy. There were sex scenes, but they didn't make an impression. Maybe if I had read the book instead of listening to it. I don't know. I would recommend you read this book (or listen to it) and judge for yourself. I voluntarily listened to and reviewed the Audiobook.

I had a hard time with this book

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I tried, I really tried to like this book. Unfortunately, the narrator killed it for me; although his voice is pleasant there is no variation between characters who are male and female. I really tried to like it but alas the narration made it hard for me.

This was a nice boy meets girl story. Although it was very predictable, the chemistry and optimism throughout the storyline was just okay. Daniel James Lewis did well with the narration. Nova and Colt’s insta-love, opposite attracts relationship needed more character development. Also, this story would benefit more from dual narration.

DON’T LET THE PAST RUIN YOUR PRESENT OR FUTURE

I rated this story 3.5 stars. Nova Kingsley, an author, and Colt McCormick, a Midwest cabin resort owner, find their lives intertwined and learn that their pasts don’t dictate their futures. There are many decisions to be made as to how a relationship would work. I was amazed at how quickly their relationship advanced. I don’t think enough was mentioned about Nova’s past to help the book progress the way it did. The narration was better than some of the others I’ve listened to. There were some inflections for the women, but they were lost or forgotten as the story went on. I loved the fact that he did do justice to the men’s voices. I received this audio book for free and am giving my honest and voluntary review

A good mountain man romance

Overall I liked this book, the audio performance okay. If one is reading the book and the audio simultaneously there were several deviations (6 major and just over 90 minor) from the printed book, many of them did not detract from the overall story and would not be noticed otherwise; however, all of the major deviations were noticeable and drew me out of the narrative. Story content review: Nova, a romance writer, meets Colt, a small town retreat owner, when she arrives for her working vacation in one of his cabins. As the story progresses inspiration strikes, fantasy and reality blur, and failing to distinguish between the two could derail their burgeoning relationship. Kelli Walker did a good job telling this story. The only thing that I thought that could have taken place and made the story better was a more realistic antagonist interaction. That is my opinion and not a reflection of her overall writing style, more supporting character development related than anything else. I will definitely be reading more from her in the future I received a free audio copy of the book from the author for a book I previously purchased. I had the opportunity to review or not.

Fun story line

I really enjoyed the story line. Big city girl meets county boy and how will they work. Personal preference but I have a hard time with a single gender doing both male and female voices. But a fun listen;)

Insta-Love

Kelli Walker wrote great characters in Nova and Colt in His Big Log Cabin. I found the imagery in this story to be well done. Having visited Lake of the Ozark's, I could envision so much. Daniel James Lewis is a new narrator to me. His voice is smooth and wonderful. He doesn't have as much character distinction as I prefer, and at times I had to really concentrate to hear who was speaking. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
