🏕️ Dallas Novak learned responsibility early on. When his parents were killed in a car accident, as the eldest son, Dallas takes on the very real life of taking care of the family ranch and his younger siblings. When the listener is introduced to this family, Emma (22) – Dallas' only sister – is proposing a business plan including a cowboy style dude ranch with yoga!!!
Emma arranges for a high end travel writer, Ginnifer Zeiss, to visit 2 weeks in hopes of great publicity with Ginnifer's glowing review.
G. arrives and is greeted by Dallas. They instantly clash as Dallas makes suggestive comments -feminists would call it sexual harassment – the rest of us see it at sexy talk. G. IS attracted but is there to write a review.
That is just a taste of all that is going on, while Ginnifer and Dallas are the main characters to follow, there are 3 or more other situations/circumstances of others couples. I presume they will be the focus of the rest of the Novak series.
I found the beginning a bit 'off putting' but once I began to understand Dallas' character I focused on the story. There was love, anger, humor, etc. intertwined with the story, I enjoyed it… EXCEPT for the talk of snakes – NOT NECESSARY! *Not a snake lover*
Anne Valliere's performance… [This is tough] I think that it was a bit better-than-average. Her cadence seem to be off and I thought most of the male characters sounded the same. Hopefully, the author will find a better fit for the remainder of the series or the narrator will become more comfortable/understanding of the material.
Overall 4 stars
performance 3.25 stars
story 4 stars
Credit worthy? I think so. The story is clever, entertaining and passionate. While I didn't find the narrator fantastic in my opinion, others may disagree. 🏕️

This a super fun modern cowboy story. Dallas is determined to swear off women after being burned by his x. Ginnifer is a Journalist brought to the ranch to write an article on the new program introduced to the ranch. She is immediately drawn to Dallas, but he keeps fighting it. To Dallas's surprise his x has found a way in to the new Cowgirl yoga program. And is upsetting everything. This is a nice start to the series and great introduction to the characters.
