Life for Charlie Sutton has never been better, or busier. With Travis now a permanent fixture of Sutton Station, a permanent fixture at Charlie’s side, Charlie’s convinced he couldn’t do anything on his ever-growing to-do list without him.

He can run a multimillion dollar cattle business, finish his degree, try and further the local beef industry, deal with staff issues, Ma’s failing health, and an attention-demanding wombat. He can even deal with an unexpected visitor and some shattering news.

He can deal with it all, as long as he has Travis.

But what happens when he doesn’t?

Red Dirt Heart 3 is the story of Charlie Sutton finally realising he can be the man Travis Craig deserves, even if he doesn’t have Travis. It’s a story of love, family, holding on, letting go and coming home.

Belens Audio Book Review

I love this series, and the audio just makes it all better.

This was sweet, fluffy, perfection.

Everything that happens to these characters are these everyday kind of bombshells that keep the angst level at a mid range…and how Walker manages to keep it from ever being too much, but rather always keeping it just enough drama, is rather brilliant. Kudos.

The narration by Joel Leslie is really the cherry on top. I love his character voices, timing, emotion, and obvious enjoyment telling the story.

Note for sticklers: there are a couple of word flubs (example: architecture instead of agriculture), but they do not diminish the enjoyment of the story.

This series is definitely in my auto-rotation!

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
