There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Former beauty queen Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction.
However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous - local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions - or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands - to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

Heartbreakingly sad and beautiful
Wow! That was amazing. As ever there is a full on Penny Reid clever, deep, sexy and entertaining story with wonderful characters and an unexpected setting. As ever you go on an eye opening journey. This time it was beautiful and loving yet so poignant and overwhelming sad. Beyond crying, at times I sobbed. Thank you for the occasional light relief and for the HEA. I needed it.
The narrator was outstanding! Such a variety of voices, tones, moods and intonation. Every word was sheer perfection, so now I’m going to add all work by Joy Nash to my TBR. (TBHeard?)
PS The poetry was mind blowing too.

Laughed, Snorted and Cried
I made the mistake of listening to this while I analyzed spreadsheets at work...in a cubicle...with short walls! I have laughed, snorted, cried...it's a wonder I haven't been Baker Acted!!!
Being Southern, I appreciate the genuine respect the narrator gave to the Southern drawl. It can be offensive when one tries to emulate a dialect that has many different strains from which to choose. She was phenomenal!!! And the brothers...dear mercies in heaven...I love those boys!!!
I lost my Daddy 7 months ago, so there were parts that were still raw to my heart; however, the author used deflection of humor at just the right times to keep the story from going too dark. Thank you for this.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story, although a few times I blushed at some of the scenes; as they were unexpected and not my particular preference. But it didn't go overboard so I appreciated that.
Well written and well narrated!!!

A sweet southern romance
My kinda book. I wish the other in the series were on audible. I would listen right away. I loved the brothers and her friends in this story and of course the relationship with her mom. Her brothers and friends made me laugh and her mom made me cry. Nice blend. I am so tired of these books with so called alpha males. I have determined that alpha male equals abusive so no thank you. This was the kind of alpha male I like. Kind thoughtful caring and strong. Their relationship developed naturally and even though I am not much of a poetry person, I loved it in the book. More of knitting in the city please.
