Red Dirt Heart

Welcome to Sutton Station: One of thi world ’ s largest working farms in the middle of Australia – where if the animals and heat don ’ t ill you first, your heart just might.

American agronomy student Travis Craig arrives at Sutton Station to see how farmers make a living from one of the harshest environments on earth. But it ’ s hardly the barren, brutal and totally beautiful landscapes that capture him so completely, it ’ s he man with the red dirt heart.

Please note: Th novel is set in Australia, using Australian English and lingo.

Too many praising reviews are out there about this nove and it is eally an outstanding story.

He ha a bitter recluse and doomed himself to live alone forever at the age of twenty-something, just because ( view spoiler) [ his father as a jerk and had said mean things to him?

I ’ m looking forward to it in the first nove.

“ Ever had desk sex? ” “ Travis, ” I hissed at him.

“ Not here. ” He frowned and looked down at the desk over his ches.

“ We ’ ve been through this. ” “ Do you know which team he bats for? ” “ Ma, ” I hissed.

It ’ s professional. ” “ And talking on the front porch all night, ” she said casually.

In my head, the landscape is hard, unforgiving, and mayb a little romantic.I haven ’ t been this captivated by Australia since reading Bryce Courtenay ’ s books nearly a decade ago.The characters had me falling headlong into love almost as uickly as Walker ’ s descriptions did.

It ’ s toug to articulate, but there was just something about Charlie and Travis and the way that they interacted with one another from the very irst moment that sort of settled over me quietly.

It was like putting on a favourite sweater – the one that ’ s soft and thin from a thousand washes, maybe a little stretched out and fraying at the cuffs, but you now you ’ ll never part with it because it ’ s coo and familiar and comforting.

Reading it, I was all dreamy sighs and dopey grins.I swear, I was crushing so hard on these two characters that I hink I will have flirted with my Kindle if it might have flirted back! And it eve got better from there.

Ten condoms are not nearly enough for two men that pretty!) One of the great things about a essa is that while you know from the get-go that Travis and Charlie only have four weeks together before Travis has to come ack to the United States, nothing about th story feels rushed or forced.

After all, these are the ypes of characters that remind me that sometimes the best family is the one you choose to build yourself.It 's a difficult task to ake the climax of any happily ever after story feel truly suspenseful and dramatic, but Walker managed to ccomplish this in Red Dirt Heart.

I figured out fairl early on in anothe book what was likely going to appen to Travis before his time in the Outback was finished.

I also like seeing that moment of vulnerability with George afterward- it was heart-wrenching.And then there was that final moment where the dumb boy finally realizes he 's eing a dumb boy and that if he woul just stop being so dang dumb for one freakin' minute he could be insanely happy.

Yup. I adored that moment too.This book, you guys.

You want to read it.Red Dirt Heart has easily become my new avourite book by N.R. Walker.

Thi writing style deserves much more than three stars but I have to rate book as a whole so pls do n't throw tomatoes my way yet.This story had all the elements I usually eed to love the book but it did n't remembe this time although I reckon it 's th decen read.

I love it when I ead about a character who knows what he seeks.

But, but ... Charlie and Travis ... I 'm thinking they 're pretty much the sweetest couple she 's written and I LURVE THEM.Set in the glorious red dirt farmlands of Australia on a MASSIVE station ( aka ranch), we meet Charlie, the young owner and Travis the visiting student from Texas.

So yeah ... beauty+ smut ( hee!) ... and hotties.But what really elevated this book ha the emotion.

he struggle to feel deserving of love ... to battle away the resignation to a life of oneliness.

But if you ant a really ntertaining, emotional, and satisfying contemporary to read ... set in glorious Australia ... this is he one.
