How steamy is it? Simmering

Publisher's Summary

When hunky rancher "Lucky Beau" Luckadeau accuses spitfire Milli Torres of stealing his prize bull, she promptly shoots at him, triggering a neighborly feud that only gets resolved when they discover they share a steamy hot memory from a night long ago.

It was a night of passion that has haunted Lucky. The mysterious beauty he seduced at a cousin's wedding has disappeared. He's always been lucky at cards, lucky with cattle, and lucky with land, but he's never been lucky in love.

Now Milli Torres has come to southern Oklahoma to help out on her grandfather's ranch. A cut fence and a big, mean Angus bull in the pasture are bad enough, but then she looks up and sees Beau Luckadeau on the other side of the fence. Great God Almighty, how did he get from Louisiana to Ardmore, Oklahoma, and what in the hell is she going to do if he recognizes her?

Don’t waste your time!

Very poor story line...character and voice doesn’t match. The main male character sounds like a idiot half the time. Seriously disappointed.

Narrating Review

I always enjoy Carolyn Brown’s books. I really like her sense of humor, and the stories about small-town living and Cowboys. Brian Hutchinson really didn’t do a good job narrating this book. Often times it was hard to tell the difference in the characters. The female narrators, like Brittany Presley, that she chooses really do a much better job, and make her books really come to life.

SO many country'isems!! LOL!

Best thing about the whole book were the country-isems. "Faster than a jackrabbit on a hot pan full of coffee" Hysterical! it was as if the author wrote the book then went back and translated as much as possible into country'isems. Story was really predictable but sounded natural. Narrator did his best to have emotional responses, but the story would have been much better if the narration was more entertaining. Narrator didn't annoy me with weird girl voices, so that worked out well. I think the whole thing could have sounded more natural if an actual Texan had read it. The neutral American speech and Texas dialogue made a good juxtaposition though, so that was nice. It wasn't a fake accent which is SO important!!! Overall, I enjoyed it, but I'm glad it's over and there isn't a sequel.... plus everyone was rich, which is annoying.

Jarring. Not in a good way.

This is not a stellar story by any measure. Having a man perform it is just odd. Hearing his impression of a woman's voice is just, well, like being at a drag show except that I'm not drunk on stage with a Queen singing Born this Way. Take a pass. His voice is nice but this is just a lousy match.
