Publisher's Summary

When JD Reed shows up at the Circle R horse ranch, Avery Dalton is fully prepared to hate his guts. Tapped by his aunt to help out at the horse ranch, the greenhorn thinks he can just step in and run the show, but Avery's not having any of it. However, JD's got a line on Avery's secret, though barely acknowledged, need to be sexually dominated. A loner used to making his own way, Avery will be damned before he submits to the arrogant Yankee.

JD Reed can never resist a challenge, and Avery Dalton is no exception. Determined to seduce and claim the tattooed, tough cowboy, JD teases and taunts his prey until he goes too far. In a battle of wills that turns physical, the sexual tension seething just below the surface explodes like a Texas tornado that sweeps them both off their feet. (M/M romance)

I've heard this story and romance before

The erotica and relationship made this worth finishing. Everything else is incredibly cliche and sometimes cringe.
Its definitely a generic wealthier and more educated swoops up and captures some lowly bumpkin kinda story.

It came as a freebie listen with Audible + otherwise I probably wouldn't have picked this up.

I'm glad I did give it a shot though, I liked it. The Erotic moments were sexy. Can't say it was anything fresh and new for me though. I've heard this story before and I've heard this sorta romance before. The one thing that maybe was a little fresh was the BDSM.

I didnt like the BDSM approach though. It felt sorta forced against someone's will, like sexual harassment and slightly predatory. It was very one sided and it made me uncomfortable

Speeding up the narration to 2x made the narrator tolerable. I loved the narrators country accent.

Hard to understand

I really wanted to like this book because I love cowboys falling in love with each other but the narrator's voice gave me a migraine! no hyperbole here! It just did not bring the story to life. Sounded like nails on a chalking board. The story didn't do it for me, not because of the content, but because of the dry narration.

Don't waste your money

DNF Not my Cup of Tea

Had no idea what to expect with this one. In the back of my head I was thinking it was going to be a perfectly pleasant romance of tense personalities clashing but then merging together. I was part right... BDSM cowboys... did not see that coming. The main guys were not great. One was borderline bullying the other into submission just off the possibility that he was into it. And the other was a dismissive know-it-all. — I am not into BDSM so that aspect was not compelling/interesting for me and with one guy doing nothing but belittling and aggressively agitating the other... it began to feel a little uncomfortable. I might continue it later on just to hear the ending but I am not sure I am ever going to like the characters. —— All that being said, I can understand why someone would enjoy this book and this approach to romance; I respect the stories validity. And while the lust through aggression and the arrogance in the face of dismissal could be your thing, it’s not mine.

Enjoyable!

I enjoyed this audiobook! The story is sweet, low angst, and steamy. The main characters appear to be polar opposites, but in fact fit each other perfectly. The narrator did a great job bringing the story and the characters to life.

DNF @ 25%, glad it was free

This might have been a decent story if the narration wasn’t delivered in such a dispassionate, emotionless, old, and frankly, John Wayne-y voice. Avery is supposed to be 26. The narrator sounds twice that, ffs.
Maybe if I had read the book instead of listening it would have been ok.

Texas Surrender

I don’t know if it was the narrator or the story. But it just was not there for me. The sex was not Love, nor was it a hard on stories nor stormy. It was slow all around but not on a way I have to go on because it’s soo hot

Pretty Good

I enjoyed this romance and will be seeking out more books from this author. First time I've heard this narrator and he did a good job. Highly recommend.
