This book from the start was so good, I couldn't stop listening. Amelia Smarts can take a naive girl and a dominant man can create the hottest stories while keeping the storyline enjoyable and believable. Callie, an 18 year old orphan has been corresponding with her soon to be husband and has to get to Sacremento to marry him. Jude, a coach driver, is convinced to take her on his wagon while he is making the trip. Through her naïveté, spunk and bravery, she creates all kinds of havoc during this trip while trying to keep his paying customers happy. Her misbehaving results in blistering spankings and Jude's feelings developing to love. The slow burn between these two is hot it has to end once Callie reaches her fiancé. Or does it?
Gideon Welles has an incredibly low voice, that rasps perfectly for an old west character. His portrayal of this book is nothing less than perfection.

Where does Corralling Callie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is very high up there because of the pure entertainment value and the authenticity of the narrator's depiction.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jude the hero was my favorite character because he was such a strong and stalwart, ruggedly sexy man of the west .He was tough yet tender and had am exquisitely gentle touch!
What does Gideon Welles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Narrator Gideon Welles breathed so much flesh and blood life into the beloved characters of Jude Johnson and Callie Broderick that I truly felt like I was transported to the Wild West and was a passenger on the long, dusty journey from St. Louis, MO to Sacramento, CA! His rough-hewn, rumbly baritone and raspy western drawl was perfectly suited for the role of gruffly sexy former soldier-turned-expert-coachman Jude Johnson, and Mr. Welles did a very admirable job of portraying sweet, native Callie as well!I found myself so immersed in the story and the vivid emotions of the characters that my heart was palpitating, my girly parts were tingling and my belly had flutters throughout. I literally could not stop swooning, squirming and giggling in girlish delight and kept smiling from ear to ear.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! This was most a definitely binge listen for me and left me positively giddy!
Any additional comments?
CORRALLING CALLIE gave me WARM FUZZIES and SWOONY feels throughout!!! So if you have a hankering for a high-spirited and homespun western romance chock full of love, drama, heartache and yummy bottom warmings, then I highly recommend this AMAZING audiobook!!
