Summary

Three-time world-champion bull-rider Rhett Allen has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. Hard work, sweat, and determination have gotten him where he is today - and that's holed up in a hospital room, wondering how he let that damn bull buck him off. He's also wondering why he thought it was a good idea to let his twin brother talk him into returning home to heal.  

Rhett has a million reasons to come home to Heaven, Texas, and only one reason to stay away. That reason comes in the form of a sweet and feisty girl who stole his heart long before he ever thought to give it away. The only problem...that girl has turned into a stunning woman.  

Monroe Gallagher is downright sexy, with more curves than he has notches in his bed post. It's been six years since he's seen her, six years since he's felt any form of peace, and six years since she gripped his heart in her delicate little hands and squeezed the life out of it. 

The longer he's in Heaven, the more he starts to realize the heart she took from him - the one she crushed into a million pieces - she also never gave back.

A Second Chance at First Love

Overall 3 stars
Performance 4.5 stars
Story 2.5-3 stars

I really love second chance romances (especially childhood friends to lovers), but this one just didn't quite hook me the way that I'd hoped. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross were fantastic however, and I loved all the emotion and feeling they put into these characters. The duet style was amazing, especially for the more heated scenes. Even though I had some issues with the decisions the characters made/were making, I couldn't wait to find out how Mo and Rhett's story was going to end. I also really loved Mo's relationship with her father and some of those scenes had me reaching for a tissue to dry my eyes.

I think the biggest issue for me, is that I found myself more frustrated and annoyed at Rhett and Mo for their lack of communication than in love with them. So much heartbreak could have been avoided with some honesty and a conversation. I understand that they were young and that young love is often all consuming and explosive, but I still found it hard to believe that they wouldn't have fought a little harder to at least have closure/tried to reach out to the other in the 6 years that they've been apart. I also had a hard time with Mo essentially groveling and begging for Rhett's forgiveness. Mistakes were made by both of them, but it was Rhett who got angry and acted like he was the only one who had been wronged. Add in the fact that Rhett enjoyed all the buckle bunnies he wanted while Mo abstained completely, and I just had a hard time believing in their love. I did like that as the story progressed, both characters grew and matured. Mo started thinking about her dreams and how to go after them, while Rhett stopped only thinking of himself/acting selfish. Overall, this was an enjoyable listen and I liked it enough to want to continue on with the series.

Great duet narration

This was such a great story about second chance romance. And you get to visit Heaven, Texas again. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott did an excellent job of portraying the many different characters in this book, each voice was different and the emotional roller coaster that this story had in it made me cry at times because when you listened to the way the characters were hurt you couldn’t help but cry along with them. After the feeling of being lied to Rhett was able to forgive Mo and they were able to rediscover their love for one another and in the end everyone got there dreams to come true and there happily ever after. I look forward to the next story and hope that if there is one that this narration duet gets to perform that one as well. I would recommend this audiobook to the fans of second chance Romances and fans of the Author and narrators.

A DELICIOUS SECOND CHANCE WITH WALL-TO-WALL FEELS

This is a really really reeeally great second chances romance between a hero and heroine who had forged a soul-mate connection through Kindergarten roots, become inseparable childhood friends, had first times and dreamed of forever times. But that was before.. before both their dreams were shattered in very different ways.. one was through a selfless act and one was through life throwing a devastatingly nasty curveball.

Rhett is one sexy as Hell sa..woooonworthy cowboy from Heaven Texas, he’s at the very top of his career living his dream as a world-class professional bull rider and he’s got fame, wealth, women and a carefree life dedicated to the PBR circuit.. but he’s also got a broken heart. Just as he was taking his first tentative steps towards his dreams his girlfriend Monroe (aka Mo) shattered his heart.. and, for six long years, they hurt in silence, they avoided one another and their lives went on.. without each other. Now an injury from a bull called Lucifer has forced him home for a while.. and that ride was a way for Fate and Destiny to step in.. it will give an opportunity for the truth to come out.. it will devastate all over again.. it will change lives and Lucifer will be ridden again.

Mo never left Heaven Texas, she’s always put everyone’s happiness before her own, she’s a loving supportive care-giving daughter, she works two jobs tirelessly and never complains.. but she longs for Rhett, her lost love, every single day, she longs to tell her secrets and she longs for a different life. Then she gets her chance to confess all, to set things straight and to finally move forward.. and the twists and turns on Mo’s ride to forgiveness isn’t on Lucifer.. but they’re just as painful, just as exhausting, just as exhilarating and just as life changing.

Worth a credit? Yes.. the Duet style dual POV narration by Wen and Kai was awesome and they brought these characters to life.. you feel the chemistry, the hurt and heartache, the regrets, the emotional dilemmas and the deep romantic feelings they share. This is K.L. Grayson’s riveting and emotional introduction to Dirty Dicks, Heaven Texas.. and it’s a painful, bitter-sweet, angsty, romantic, touching, sexy and beautiful one. It’s true love’s dreams turning to ashes.. and it’s second chances that are slowly forged from those ashes.

Great Second Chance Romance!

This first book in the Dirty Dicks Series is a great Second Chance Romance. I loved the story of Rhett and Monroe. They are both strong and they share a great chemistry. Unfortunately, misunderstandings, lies and a lack of communication separated them. Fortunately, they got their second chance to love. This story is well written, sweet, funny and sexy. The secondary characters are also very interesting, including the pets! I loved their happy ending! The narration was really well done, as always with Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. The team, author/narrators, is perfect! I enjoyed my listening. I have already listened to the second book in this Series and loved it! Now, I can't wait to listen to the third book in the Series. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Crazy Sexy Love

if you are in the mood for a second chance romance then you have come to the right place. Rhett and Monroe break up when they are younger because of a misunderstanding that leads to heartbreak for the both of them. When he is injured while bull riding he is forced to go to his home town with family and runs into Monroe again. The sparks and chemistry between them is off the charts and luckily they are willing to give each other another chance. Although there is a lot of semiconductors guessing each other they are able to find their way through together. A really good story with amazing narration to go with it. Now I just have to go listen to the next.
