Colorado wedding planner Mason O’Reilly lands a major contract: a two-hundred-guest wedding at the Leanin’ N Ranch, where his friends Ford and Stoney are working to provide a safe space for GLBT events. The Wright/Preston ceremony is a destination wedding, and as the grooms are from Texas, everything is done over the phone and email. There’s no way that could lead to trouble, right?
Oil tycoon Noah Wright isn’t happy about the impending disaster, but he admires Mason’s quick thinking and grace under pressure. And that’s not all he likes about the out-and-proud wedding planner. Even though Mason’s interested in Noah, his Mr. Right can’t possibly be a rancher from Dallas.
I spent a very pleasant afternoon listening to this book. Headphones on letting the family fend for themselves. Just what I needed on a wet and windy English winters day, images of a Colorado summer. I like this gentle story it brought a smile to my face with the mix up over the wedding and the unyielding Noah Wright. As the story progresses Noah begins to admire Mason and his can do will do attitude making the events he organises run smoothly. There are parts that feel contrived for the sake of the story but it’s all in the spirit of the Dreamspun desires series, love wins against all odds. Such as family interference, being from different social classes, distance and work getting in the way. The story is full of fun characters, the bride, members of the Leanin’N Ranch (I liked them so much I’ve brought book one to listen to) and the wonderfully described dog.
Robbie Nelson is a new to me. I enjoyed his narration and the characterisation of Mason, Noah and the crew of the Leanin’N Ranch. I liked the accents he used, although I am from England so I have no idea how authentic they are, but I found them easy to listen to. Robbie has a lovely voice.
