Description

Rough, raw, and rugged.

As the man in charge at Ravenswood Ranch, Shane Nelson has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. His sculpted physique isn't the product of a gym, but of years of hard labor under a relentless sun. His straightforward, alpha tendencies come from a man who knows what he wants and goes after it - and what he wants is Rachel Waters. He's never stopped wanting her.

They were childhood best friends, then teenage lovers who evolved into soulmates. But on one fateful night, Shane made a grave mistake, breaking both their hearts in the process. Now, after six years, Rachel is back in the small, wild mountain town of North Ridge, British Columbia.

Ready to face her past. Ready to face Shane. Ready to face his dark secret. But is a second-chance at a one true love in the cards? Or will their wild hearts be broken once again?

Canadian Cowboy love

I read this book before I listened to it. Wild Card is a great second chance romance between two childhood friends. I really felt the love between the two characters. Shane was a serious rancher working at the family farm. He lived a rugged, country lifestyle with his family. Rachel was a young career woman living in Toronto with a checkered past. Admittedly, she created a new life for herself far away in a big city that wasn't exactly making her happy. Shane and Rachel were childhood sweethearts. They were forced to breakup because of unfortunate circumstances. The reunite because of other unfortunate circumstance and Shane admits that he never stopped loving Rachel. He then goes on to mend what was broken between them.

I think that the audiobook fell short because of the narrators. I felt as though they didn't fit the characters in the book. Shane seemed so serious and quiet and Alexander Cendese had more of a playful tone. Where as Alexandra Shawnee was more serious She seemed older than the mid twenty-something Rachel. I also thought their imitation of male/ female characeters were a bit odd. It seemed like a disconnect between the story I read and the story I heard (based on the delivery)

Ultimately I liked Wild Card but I'd skip the audiobook and just read this one.

Great story but....

I loved the story. Well the part I listened to. The only saving graces in this audio book was the story and the male narrator. The female narrator ruined it for me. She may have been better for another book, but she ruined this one for me. I think I'll skip anything she is narrating. Sorry:(.

Shane is a good book boyfriend

This is a second chance story with an honest-to-goodness hero. Cute and a little angsty; the heroine needed to get a clue sometimes.

It could have been better.

I don't understand why the women in these second chance love stories always have to be the ones to forgive and forget.
The man hurts them in such deep ways. And yet it's the women who have to suck it up and play nice.

Here is Rachel coming back to help her sick mother, to a town who all knows how the man she loved dumped her and broke her heart. They all seem to think that she should be over it and basically force her to endure the company of the man she wants nothing to do with. And of course she doesn't stand up for herself because she should be the bigger person.

No. Just no. Have some self preservation and don't let people walk all over you. This story was weak, and disappointing.

Save your points!

The plot and storyline were very good, and up to a point, I reallly enjoyed this book. However, after Shane & Rachel start talking again, the quality goes straight downhill. VERY graphic sexual descriptions, and the last several chapters contain innumerable dropping of the "f" bomb - by both characters. The narration by Alexander Cendese was decent, but I didn't care for Alexandra Shawnee's performance at all.

Too bad!!

I had a very difficult time getting involved in this book. The performers were awful this story needs to have a female voice that has feelings in the reading and different intonations when using it on different characters ....

Ugh!

I really wanted to listen to this book but the female narration was just unbearable! Huge heaving breaths after every sentence just disgusted and distracted me too much. This narrator is definitely going on my do not listen to list!

Fantastic!

I loved this so much. It's such a sensitive and real life story and the narrators were top notch! I found myself really drawn in and listened to it in two days. Bring on the next!
