Handsome rancher's new ranch hand hides a surprise

What did you love best about Wyoming Tough?

I enjoyed the ins and outs of everyday ranch work as described in the book as I grew up around cowboys and ranch hands myself. There is a good storyline here and Mallory Kirk is a very strong character. Surprised however that he was so easily fooled by the rag girlfriend who could not leave quick enough for me. Morie Brannt is a very strong heroine in this story. Gives as good as she gets though she is still vulnerable to her feelings for him. She of course, is hiding things from him as all heroines seem to do. Lots of good support characters who I am sure will get books or make appearances in later books.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wyoming Tough?

The scene at her father's ranch when Mallory is finally presented with the truth. Hard for a strong man like him to face all his mistakes in front of all those people. He is a good man after all.

Which scene was your favorite?

I had many that I enjoyed and can't decide on any one over the other that I would listen to over and over. There are many funny and sad moments in the story that bear hearing again.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Not good at tag lines so will not try here.

Any additional comments?

I like the way Phil does all the male characters. He does suttle accents very well and does a very good drawl. I like to be able to tell a character is older and he does that well too. I do wish that his women's voices were better. They are more times than not too high pitched and more annoying than sensual. Love scenes can be tough indeed when the woman sounds like that. Hopefully that will improve one day because he is really a very good narrator.

Great Start

This book is the start of a great trilogy. Very well written and beautifully romantic. Can't wait till the whole series gets out.

HO hum~ Another Heroine with a SECRET~ 3 STARS

PLOT: rich Mallory Kane notices the new hired hand lovely Morie~

Standard wealthy Palmer heroine who gets her first JOB on Mallory Kanes Cattle Ranch. Morrie is lovely and innocent and is very attracted to sexy boss Mallory but at his side is Gaeli his nasty lady friend who lets NO one stand in her way. Typical Palmer fare but she has lost the abusive HERO thank God~ this one drags a bit going over and over characters from her previous books. Morie finally is fired after Gaeli plants evidance she stole. and the Hero finally has his eyes opened ~ WE need more passion here Diana and less going endlessly how inept Morie is. I have to give this one 1 star for performer~ Phil is a wonderful reader but when he tries to imitate a FEMALE voice it makes me cringe ~ romance audio is better with female readers~ hint hint hint~ BETTER than some of Diana's later novels~ I give this one 3 stars for over all story, 1 star for MALE voice trying be female and 3 stars for over all ~ and where is the Passion Diana?? you seemed to have forgottent that. and how about RELEASING SOME OF HER EARLIER TITLES??? HINT HINT HINT~ THOSE ARE HER VERY BEST STORIES ANY WAY~

a little disappointed, but oh that cowboy drawl!

Not too crazy for the love story. I need a little more fireworks and deeper connection between the lovers. It just seemed too fast and blah. But Phil Gigante's voice kept me listening. God that drawl is hot! Other reviews critique his female voice, but I have yet to hear anything better from a man. No squeaky falsetto here.

GREAT STORY GREAT COWBOY NARRATION TERRIBLE WOMANS

What did you like best about Wyoming Tough? What did you like least?

Really enjoyed this story, somewhat ruined however by the narrators womens voice!! was the most wimpy annoying voice ever, completely ruined the mood. Did an amazing manly cowboy narration though so cannot say the narrator was completely terrible just wish they had done something else for the womans.

Mislabeled- it's Christian/religious/conservative

ugh this should have been under inspirational/religious. the beginning was ok but toward the middle, the Christian stuff and the whole "virginity is important" was too much.

Normally I don't like romance stories

This one held my interest and that romance was when I could actually visualize and agree with spiritually.
At first I thought I couldn't tolerate the narrators attempt at a female voice but in time it was endearing because he did such a great job on the male voices.
Great job Diana

At first I was afraid I wouldn't be able to hear the deep voice of the performer but I turned it up and it was so wort it. Exciting and irritating. ha
So much fun.

female voice was BAD

I struggled to finish the audio as the female voice was hokey and grating. I will avoid this narrator in future audibles if he performs the female role.

Boring and Predicable

This book held so many promises of a great little western but ultimately fell flat in the first five minutes. Although well narrated, the characters are bland, two-dimentional and have very similar names which is confusing to listen to. Gave it a good hour before I had to return it.
