Publisher's Summary

Life for Charlie Sutton has never been better, or busier. With Travis now a permanent fixture of Sutton Station, a permanent fixture at Charlie's side, Charlie's convinced he couldn't do anything on his ever-growing to-do list without him.

He can run a multimillion dollar cattle business, finish his degree, try and further the local beef industry, deal with staff issues, Ma's failing health, and an attention-demanding wombat. He can even deal with an unexpected visitor and some shattering news.

He can deal with it all, as long as he has Travis.

But what happens when he doesn't?

Red Dirt Heart 3 is the story of Charlie Sutton finally realizing he can be the man Travis Craig deserves, even if he doesn't have Travis. It's a story of love, family, holding on, letting go, and coming home.

Any additional comments?

Sweet, fluffy, perfection.

Everything that happens to these characters are these everyday kind of bombshells that keep the angst level at a mid range...and how Walker manages to keep it from ever being too much, but rather always keeping it just enough drama, is rather brilliant. Kudos.

The narration by Joel Leslie is really the cherry on top. I love his character voices, timing, emotion, and obvious enjoyment telling the story.

Breathlessly Enthralling - Charlie and Trav!

The Audio is fabulous - Absolutely, I have read this series over and over again and am absolutely LOVING the audiobooks. The first one took me a bit to acclimate to Joel Leslie, but once I did, there is none better for CHARLIE & TRAV! It enhances already great books and makes them even better!

What did you like best about this story?

Charlie and Trav evolve as a couple and as people who really love each other with their whole hearts, there is so much thought that goes into it. Some of it I find almost lyrical. It's like NR knows these people, intimately... it's just a step above everything she's written (and I like all of her books but... Trav and Charlie just have soul and heart). The whole book is fantastic really, the writing is so insightful and personal - you really get into the characters, especially Charlie. NR knows how to get to the feelings and she doesn't carry on about them, but it's like you're inside their heads - the story is sexy but the overall theme is love, deserving love, being understood and being the best you can be together...I've read all of her books but this series is by far the best - and I had to buy them in book form JUST to have them!

I dare you not to be personally invested and amazed by her writing... One of the best M/M romances ever. I own the books, I own the E-books and now, eagerly awaiting and buying every new Red Dirt Heart installment NR puts out!! THANK YOU NR - I treasure these and listen to them OVER AND OVER AGAIN! They are KEEPERS!!! I never want this series to end!

Outstanding series

I read the first two and listening to the 3rd was just as good. Joel Leslie did almost as good a job bringing Charlie and Travis to life as my own imagination did in the first two.

NR Walker's continuation of their story was funny, interesting, dramatic and lead Charlie on a learning experience that was very real life and heart warming. Exquisite sequel.

Forever love.

This book 3 replicates the perfection of books 1 & 2. You need to read books 1 & 2 first because book 3 is the continuing M/M romance of the same main characters (even though book one is a standalone with a HEA and book 2 ends with a HEA). Both books 1 & 2 each end with NO CLIFF-HANGERS.

It is a pure joy to experience the ups and downs of the love between two beautiful souls embodied in Aussie Charlie and Texan Travis living and working together in the Australian Outback.

There is a story behind the romance, and it was the combination of story, romance and excellent narration that had me binge-listening to this series (three books on Audible so far). The character development of these two young men across 3 books is extraordinary particularly Charlie’s character. I fell in love with both men myself.

What an amazing narrator Joel Leslie is. He NAILED the Australian accent which is very hard to do well. The Texan accent sounds genuine too. Accents aside, he is skilled at bringing the multitude of characters to life with individual voices, the right inflection, and he creates the right mood, filling my ears with the warmth of the story – a story beautifully written by NR Walker.

All I can do is BEG Audible to (PLEASE, PLEASE!!!) make books 3.5 and 4 available. I know I can read them on Kindle, but I NEED to hear Joel Leslie’s voice reading me the stories. Luckily, the essence of the story is covered by books 1 – 3. (3.5 is a Christmas novella and book 4 is the love story told from Texan Travis’s point of view).

If you love M/M romance, I recommend all three novels in the Red Dirt Heart series available on Audible. I know I will be listening to them again.

Perfectly heartbreakingly wonderful

I put off reading this book for so long. Why? Because I had a feeling it would shatter my heart. I was convinced that something really bad was going to happen that would break Charlie's heart and I just couldn't bear that.

Obviously, I finally dove in. And now that I have, I can say that I may have overreacted just a little bit. But this book was more serious that its predecessors.

I actually did a mix of audio and straight kindle reading my first time through this book. When I finished, I couldn't help but listen to the audio again. I'm totally hooked on Joel Leslie. He's made me love Charlie and Travis even more than I thought possible. I don't think I'll ever stop hearing Travis in my head telling Charlie that he'll die if he doesn't get inside him in the next 5 minutes.

I honestly don't know how I can ever say goodbye to Charlie and Travis. I know that I have a few books left yet but they've wormed their way deep into my heart. They've become favorites and I guess you really never say goodbye to your favorites. And they'll always be right there waiting for me to visit them again.

Love this series

I love this series! Charlie has so many things thrown at him that I’m not sure at times that he could handle it. Things popped up that I didn’t see coming, and I can’t mention as it would spoil it. What really almost broke me was when Travis had to go back to the states because of his grandfather. Charlie was sure it was over. And here I thought Charlie had finally come to terms with the love from Travis. This was a great continuation of their love story. I have to run off to the next book in the series.

Wonderful

I have truly enjoyed all three books so far. I’m looking forward to book 4. Then, I’ll read the other compliment books. This has been such a wonderful story of learning, loving, accepting, growing, realizing, sadness and happiness. Friendships and family. Lost and reunited. A beautiful story.

Perfection!

NUGGET!

OK, so he totally steals every scene he is in, because he's just too adorable.

Love everything about this, how Charlie finds out he CAN do everything he wants to, it's just better with Travis at his side. The emotion in this was just so, so good. I love everything about Sutton Station. Highly recommended, start with book 1 and read in order!
