In Gold Valley, Oregon, forbidden love just might be the sweetest....

 

Dane Parker traded in his trailer-park roots for glory as a bull rider. But when a serious injury sidelines him for months, it's the first time he can't just pull himself up by his bootstraps. The last thing he wants to deal with is sweet family friend Bea treating him like one of her wounded animals - or the unexpected attraction that suddenly flares between them.

 

Beatrix Leighton has loved Dane for years, while he's always seen her as another sister. When she enlists his help to start her animal sanctuary, she thinks it will give him purpose. Instead, it brings all the desire she feels for him to the boiling point. 

 

Bea's father taught her early on that love means loss. But could her forbidden crush turn into a love that will last a lifetime?

Unbroken Cowboy is book five in the Gold Valley by Maisey Yates and Narrated by Suzanne Elise Freeman.

 

Bea is sweet, kind hearted, and loves animals and all creatures. She is taking a look at her life and making changes. She’s also had a crush on her sister-in-laws’s brother, Dane for a long time, but she knows that he and everyone sees her as a child. I couldn’t connect to our heroine Bea. Her sweet and innocent thing is well and good, but it got on my nerves and eventually felt to child like. I never felt like she grew up. Never felt like she was taking life by the hands and living it. She stayed safe in her bubble, her little cabin.

 

Dane is a rodeo bull rider who finds himself injured and his future in question. His injures put him in a dependent position and he hates it. He’s a very grumpy man. As for Bea he’s always seen her as the sweet innocent little sister. The time he spends with her during his recovers has him seeing her in a new light. I liked Dane well enough. Yes, he’s grumpy for a lot of the book, but I get it and understand he’s got to come to terms with his injuries and that the rodeo life is over and thing figure out what to do.

 

As for Dane and Bea’s relationship it felt more like a high school relationship with all the occurred moments and realizing that the girl is a women etc… *A little rant/side not: The author calls Bea a girl a lot instead of a women. That one word, girl, frustrates me. A grown women, is a women, not a girl. If you understand what I’m trying to say. The girl word only works for kids in my opinion. Now, moving on the relationship was just too teen like. It was slow moving and then at the end it felt rushed and unsatisfying.

 

I’ve enjoyed the previous four books and I was looking forward to Dane finally seeing Bea as a women, but unfortunately this one was not what I wanted. It just lacked the adult vibe for me.

 

Narration: Suzanne Elise Freeman continues to narrate for the Golden Valley series and she did a fabulous job again. I really enjoy her narration and voices for the characters.

 

Rated: 2 Stars
Narration: 4 Stars

Last night I registered myself and the kids for our local public library's Summer Reading Program, which starts June 1st. I already received my first "badge" which was "Coffee and Books" - very fitting Beanstack, even if I drink tea not coffee. The program for the kids will be done via two ways: FB Live for story time, and then parents go the library and pick up materials for the hands on part of the program to do at home. Honestly, this works for me and the kids - who knew the social distancing methods would work so well with mine and the kids temperaments?

 

Today the kids and I participated in the "reverse parade" where parents drive their kids to school to caravan along the sidewalk and say goodbye to the teachers and staff (the last two social distances parades had the teachers caravan through the different neighborhoods that feed into our school). I received a succulent from Sophia's teacher as a thank you gift for helping out in the classroom this year.  After, we went to Starbucks for apple juice and cake pops to celebrate - Joshua is now a 4th grader and Sophia is now a 2nd grader! 

 

Looking towards this holiday weekend, I am working my way through 1666, which will be my prime reading choice so I can officially finish Snakes and Ladders 2020. Then on Monday, I start my summer reading project with daily reading in the anthology Because He's Perfect. The novellas Random Number Generator picked for me this upcoming week are Dance All Night, Love By the Letter, Proper English, Mail Order Cowboy, and The Cost of Hope. So that is what I'm reading this weekend/week. 

 

Happy Reading and if you are in the US, Happy Memorial Day!

Great Story and Characters
Wicked Cowboy WOlf - Ballenger, Kait Years ago, Grey Wolf Jared Black was cast from the pack for a crime he didn't commit. Now, he's the mysterious criminal wolf known only as the Rogue, a name his former packmates won't soon forget. But when a vampire threat endangers the lives of their entire species, Jared must confront his former packmates again, even if that means betraying the only woman he's ever loved…Ever since Maeve Gray escaped the pack's bloodsucking enemies, she's been determined to save her species—and fast. Each passing day risks the lives of her friends and family. But when a wicked cowboy wolf shows up on the Grey Wolf ranch, offering everything Maeve's heart desires, her eyes are opened to a whole new world beyond the packlands. For this cowgirl, sleeping with the enemy could prove as desirable as it is deadly… This was a great story by a great author. I’ve read the other books in this series and loved them, I was excited to read this one. I really liked both main characters as well as the plot. Having read the other books, I was already introduced to Maeve and slightly to the reputation of the Rogue. My only issue was Maeve being a little late on the identity. I highly recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Yet, these two broken people take courageous steps to rise above the tragedy that life has forced them to endure. Beautiful, broken and bold find a way to inspire the human spirit.

Cowboy for Hire (Wishing River, #2) by: Victoria James
Cowboy for Hire (Wishing River, #2) - Victoria James

 

 

 

Under the skin and into the heart. Victoria James connects deeply with readers because the emotion that her stories convey is real. Cowboy for Hire should be a walking heartache, but instead turns out to be a tale of empowerment. Sarah Turner is finally learning to spread her wings after years of self-doubt. Cade Walker is at a crossroads. Trust does not come easy for this loner cowboy. When life veers off track, fate has a few tricks up it's sleeve. Cowboy for Hire is a story of hope that enlightens the heart and brightens the soul.
