I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.
This is all I look for in a story set in the country-side: nature, horses, sheep (lots of sheep!), and hot men. Lots of nature. And really lots of sheep.
Absolutely marvelous storytelling, where the Australian landscape is brought to life in front of me.
Without ever falling into the trap of transcribing dialect, the Aussie sound shines through in word choices and actions. The Aussie drawl when Hank calls Doc “Quackle” simply resonates within me.
For once, I adore being in a first person setting, because Hank is adorable. Clueless, but adorable.
I gave you a lamb to name. What part of that doesn’t say I love you?
Now, add to this all the sensual loving, all the good feels and heeee-haaa sexing, there is brilliant wit in here. Crushing humor that had me bellowing out loud. God, I love a book that makes me laugh, and Hank? He’s just the best. Did I say clueless and adorable? Hot and totally unaware.
Shearing gun and fun guy éxtraordinaire.
My favorite combo.
Will look into this author to see what else is there.
I was given a free copy of this book from the publisher, Dreamspinner Press, and a positive review wasn’t promised in return.
