Rex Braden is wealthy, hard-working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over 40 years, moves back into town.
After ditching a horrific relationship - and her veterinary practice in the process - Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.
Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny - and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.
Rex & Jade!
These Braden men are going to be the end of me. Each time I meet a new one, I swear he is my favorite, and this one is no exception! Rex is somewhat of broody cowboy. Always interested in Jade Johnson, the daughter of his father's nemesis has left him lonely. Not that he doesn't attract women, because all that Braden goodness absolutely does. Now that Jade is back in town though, his feelings are rekindled. When she ends up in a precarious situation, he comes to her aid, and our love story begins. It is a little of Romeo and Juliet, a little of second chances to find their love and a beautiful story. Jade is an amazing woman. I love her horse whispering and her ability to calm the animals. It shows just how compassionate and loving she is. Rex is all we want in a man. Slightly mysterious, loyal til the end, this man won my heart. Plus we get to see others we have met and loved as well. It's an easy listen and has left me wanting to have more of this incredibly interesting family. BJ Harrison continues his narration of the series and I really enjoy his voice. He has an effortless feel to his performance and just lets us lose ourselves in the story. Each voice easy to distinguish and his story telling is spot on. Another wonderful portrayal of the Bradens.
Love Can Overcome Anything
Even a family feud can’t keep these two destined love birds from being together. Rex and Jade have so many things stacked against them but because of their destined love each challenge they are faced with results in them coming closer together.
Give this audiobook a listen this holiday season and you’ll be destined to fall in love with their love story too!!
A nice romance!
This was a nice romance. I enjoyed meeting the Braden family earlier in the previous book in this series so I was looking forward to Rex's story. There are some familiar characters in this book for fans of the series but this book would work well as a stand-alone as well. I had a really good time watching Jade and Rex fall for each other in this novel.
Rex takes care of the family ranch and doesn't spend a lot of time on relationships. Jade is just getting out of a bad relationship and has moved back home with her parents. Rex and Jade's families have been feuding for the past 40 years and there is no way that anyone would accept them as a couple. Unfortunately, these two can't seem to stay away from each other. I liked Rex and Jade as a couple. They had incredible chemistry with each other and seemed to have a deeper connection early in their relationship. I liked the way that they worked together to address the obstacles to their relationship.
B.J. Harrison did a good job with the narration of this book. I did have a little hiccup with some of the voices that he used at the start of the book but that was only an issue for a short time. I think that his narration added a lot of emotion to the story and added to my overall enjoyment of the story.
I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. I found this to be a very nice romance with characters that I was invested in from the start. I cannot wait to read more of this wonderful series.
I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.
