Summary

When hardened gunslinger Tucker Prescott is tasked with bringing law and order back to a town overrun by a gang of criminals, he quickly realizes that his biggest challenge won't be the villainous McGill brothers. The one who will truly put him to the test is Dolly Baker, the beautiful, feisty 22-year-old daughter of the man who hired him.

From the moment she barges into his cabin uninvited, Tucker knows Dolly is going to be trouble, and it isn't long before she tests his patience one time too many and earns herself a sound spanking. The embarrassing chastisement gets her attention, but it will take quite a bit more than a few smacks on the bottom to teach her obedience, and the more he sees of Dolly, the more Tucker is forced to admit that he would love to be the man to properly tame her.

Tucker didn't come to Spring Junction to keep a woman in line, however, he came to deal with the McGill brothers and their gang. He has a plan to do just that, but it will depend on his quick wits as much as his quick draw, and despite his best efforts Tucker can't get Dolly off his mind. Can he bring the outlaws to justice and make her his bride before she drives him to distraction?

Tucker's Justice is an erotic romance novel that includes sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Wow the Narrator choice was GARBAGE

Common sense is not having a Narrator that sounds like a 60+ year old cowboy, 2 packs a day smoker perform voices of male and female characters in their early 20's. If the story was an age gap western romance, then this narrator would be great.

Then the author is just terrible in the way she has an interesting premise and novel portrayal of a smart almost spy-like gunslinger. But entirely ruins any enjoyment of the character with him being instantly and unrealistically obsessed with the bratty female character the literal moment he meets her.

This lack of story telling continues with the MC's weak ability to discipline her. The reader suffers chapters and chapters of the "Strong no nonsense" MC stating how he delivers the "Justice" to ill behaved spoiled young ladies. But he really just tries to bore them into behaving with idle spanking threats and lectures.

As a whole the audio book was an epic failure. Piss poor narrator choice. Wasted potential great story with a novel character premise and plot line, due to her inability to craft a good story even with such golden material. And finally a horrible and ill conceived dumpster fire of a romance poorly shoehorned into a first draft of a western.

Justice would be giving an honest review...

...after the waste of time spent listening to this publication. However, I stopped during the first chapter because that was all I could stomach. It is so rare for me not to finish a book since I feel that writers work hard and I always give it as far as possible to be sure of my response. But I was certain I didn't like the tone of this story in the first chapter.

While the narrator has a fine voice it does sound middle aged to me. There is nothing wrong with that but I am visualising my grandfather as he narrates Tucker which is not appealing never mind sexy. And I am 63 yrs o.d myself so I don't feel I am being ageist. Furthermore, his rendition of Dolly's voice is horrible. He makes her sound like a 10 year old child instead of a 22 year old woman. Part of this problem may be the writing.

If the writer is trying to get us see that Dolly is a spoiled brat she has gone OTT. Dolly acts so immature for a 22 year old woman and it just isn't believable or redeemable to me. Then there is Tucker, another character I am finding unlikable, irredeemable and unbelievable. I despise it when a writer sets a story up where the male is patriarchal, dictatorial and authoritarian. It is again OTT. Tucker is one up and Dolly is one down. It doesn't work for me.

At last I come to the issue of spanking. I don't have any issue with spanking if it is CONSENSUAL, done in play and is egalitarian. When it is done as a punishment it becomes abuse in my eyes, makes me angry and I am done. Tucker's physical handling of Dolly especially so early in the story was unbelievable. He is threatening to spank her in the 1st 5 min and throws her over his shoulder promising further abuse in approx first hour. He was hired to stop the crime in town not interfere in family dynamics about which he knows nothing. While I am not a stickler for historical accuracy, men did not touch women they did not know in those days even in the more lenient West as it was considered an egregious affront. If the author wanted us to think of Tucker as a big, bad, "take no prisoners" type of Alpha guy, this scene might have been more realistically employed later in the book. This smacks of an attempt of the writer to imbue this tale with modern day sensibilities rather than reality. FSOG meets the Old West doesn't work for me but even Grey does not physically handle Anna in the 1st 30 minutes of the tale.

I can already predict how this juvenile tale is going to go. There is some sorrowful reason for Dolly's behaviour and she is suddenly going to become more mature. Tucker is going to soften his attitude towards her, he will kill the bad guys, maybe after becoming injured, they realize their love each other after some enemies to lover dance and of course, they have their HEA. Even though I love a good western even with this trope, it is usually done with more finesse. I do not enjoy giving negative reviews and it is done without malicious intent. I hope the writer can use the feedback to hone their craft. However, either way, I am entitled to my opinion and I read the reviews before selecting. While these reviewers have the right to their opinion as I do mine, I just wish I had given more attention to the more critical reviews in this case.

couldn't finish

I'm never one to turn off an audiobook but I just couldn't finish. The narrator was ok but I just couldn't attach his voice with a 20 or 30 something year old. sounded more like my dad. Sorry.

3.5 stars... it had it's moments....

This book wasn't something I'd normally read/listen to but the story sounded interesting so I gave it a try... the story it's self was easy going and enjoyable, the only real thing I had trouble with was the narration... Tucker's character is 26yrs old and Dolly's is 22yrs old but the narrator was a much, much older sounding gentleman so I found it distracting at times while trying to enjoy the story.... I think I'll get an ecopy of the book and reread it so I can focus on the story better

HOT HOT HOT!!!

I LOVED THIS AUDIO BOOK!!! From the beginning, I fell in love with the narrator's voice. Mr. Daniel Dorse sounded exactly like I had imagined Tucker Prescott's voice would sound like when I read this book the first time on my kindle. Yes, I said the first time. I admit that I loved it so much that I read it twice. Naturally, as I started listening to the audio version, I fell in love again with the no nonsense, take charge, handsome hired gunman Tucker Prescott. Tucker was hired by the mayor of Spring Junction to restore law and order to the once peaceful town, which can only happen if and when he can remove the McGill gang for good. The gang had been terrorizing the residents and business owners for so long that most were thinking of packing up and moving on. The Sheriff was apparently enforcing no law and maintaining no order as far as folks could tell. When Tucker arrived he was given a cabin to stay in and a few horses to use as needed, all conveniently located outside of town. It was on the mayor's property but well away from the large home occupied by the mayor, his daughter, and the woman who helped him raise her after his wife died. Tucker had insisted on complete isolation while doing his job. He clearly did not have time nor did he need the distraction of trying to protect any women who might be in or near his cabin. Getting rid of the McGill gang was going to be a challenge, but Tucker truly understood the term challenge when the beautiful, feisty, sassy mayor's daughter Dolly Baker burst uninvited into his cabin right after he first arrived. Not only was she disrespectful, she was argumentative and in dire need of good spanking. After the threat of being put over his knee and sent away, Dolly stumbled on an opportunity to get even with the bossy but handsome gunman. This leads to the first of many trips over Tucker's knee for Dolly. I've heard that curiosity killed the cat. Curiosity didn't kill Dolly but it certainly turned her bottom a pretty shade of crimson and Tucker enjoyed every smack. The characters in this book are amazing. I especially loved sweet, kind, wise old Father O'Brian, Tucker's friend and aide in gathering information, and if Mr. Dorse isn't a true Irishman with his authentic thick Irish brogue, I'll kiss your Barney stone! This is an extraordinary story and as you hear Tucker attempt to tame Dolly and the town of Spring Junction, I hope you'll be as impressed with Maggie Carpenter's talent and imagination as I am. Tucker Prescott's plan is ingenious and will blow your socks off! I'll be listening to this one again (with my husband) this weekend. Thanks Ms. Carpenter, for the hours of awesome entertainment!!!

Good story. Not so great narration.

I plan on purchasing this book. I think I will enjoy it more. I do feel like there was a good storyline. But, the narration took so much away from the story, I had to give it a some thought before I wrote my review. I reached the conclusion that I wanted and needed to read the book. I shouldn't have had to put that much effort into trying to determine whether or not the book was good.

Therefore, it pains me to say that I really, really did not like the narration. The narrator's voice made me think more of an old dusty man as opposed to a hot, sexy cowboy. Because his voice created this image in my head, by the time he got to the first spanking, I was honestly kind of creeped out.

When he switched over to Dolly's voice, it was just strange. It took me out of the story and made me think of some strange man trying to imitate a young girl. I didn't care for Dolly at all, but I'm not sure if it was because of her personality, or the way the narrator read her character.

I have listened to other audio books narrated by a man. He did a "cowboy" voice, and both the male and female voices. I never got the sense of an old man or a creepy man imitating a woman. It didn't taken me out of the story.

I would recommend you listen for yourself. You may find the narrator's rendition is to your liking. I just couldn't connect the cover photo to the voice.

I did receive this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review

Good western romance

Bad guys that take over a town, good guys that want their town back but need a leader, classic western plot, Tucker is the leader the town needs, great sexual chemistry between Tucker and Dolly, and a great love story.

Awesome!

This book was incredible. It drew me in at the beginning and never let me go. The characters were unique and well developed. The intelligent heroine was headstrong and made the romance very interesting relative to domestic discipline. I loved the hero, who was unlike any I've encountered before. The main plot was creative and kept me listening. The narrator took me by surprise with his remarkable voice. It took me a few minutes to get used to but I ended up loving all the voices and accents. He really brought the book to life. I didn't want it to end.

Exciting western!

I asked to receive this Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. If you like westerns or books full of adventure, you need to listen to this Audible book. It is full of bad guys that take over a town, good guys that want their town back but need a leader,  Tucker a man of honor and what the town needs, great sexual chemistry between Tucker and Dolly, and a great love story. This is one of those books that you just have to listen to one more chapter before stopping. When I listened to the narrator, it was like listening to an old time western. He brought the emotions, suspense, intrigue, and sexual chemistry to life. I highly recommend this Audible book.
