Wild & Crazy couple

I was wondering how this story would go with us already knowing that Trace and Brindle were together before she jetted off to Paris. But this story was great! We already knew that Trace and Brindle had a very fire-y relationship. They both are wild are heart and don't like being told what to do, plus they were hiding their true feelings from one another. Both Brindle and Trace thought they were protecting their hearts by not completely giving them to each other, when they were actually driving a wedge between them. This one came through with lot's of hot and crazy times. This story's steam level was definitely on the high side. Regardless of the state Brindle was in and the uncertainty of their relationship, these two could not keep their hands off each other. But I loved that their feelings for each other remained so "like new" since they had been together for so many years. It was good to see them solidify their relationship. The narration was good as well. It brought the story to life and provided the effective feel of the scenes happening throughout.

Loved Trace and Brindle together

Wow! I could not put this book down once I started it. I absolutely loved Trace and Brindle's story. They are perfect together and I loved watching them grow as a couple. It was so nice seeing Trace expressing his thoughts and feelings towards Brindle. I love every character in this series and can't wait for the next book. Savannah Peachwood and Brian Pallino did a wonderful job in the audio version of Wild, Crazy Hearts. They brought the story and characters to life.

Made me laugh and made me cry.

If you have been waiting for Brindle and Trace’s story you will NOT be disappointed. The storyline was not what I expected for the two of them so I thoroughly enjoyed the twists, turns, and revelations regarding their on again, off again relationship. It really was a true romance. Who would of guessed that the tough cowboy would have such a beautiful heart. Melissa Foster’s characters are always exceptional and she has outdone herself with this emotional book both in print and audio. The narration by Savannah Peachwood and Brian Pallino provided a variety of characters voices that truly brought this audiobook to life.

My favorite of the series!

I listened to the audio version of this book. I would say that this is probably my favorite of the Braden/Montgomery books because it started out with a real conflict--and nobody was super rich! I liked this as much as I liked the Whiskey series.
Brindle pretty much ran away from Trace and a bump (one of many) in their relationship. She returns to France with quite the surprise for everyone in the small town. It's already stressful, but then she lies. And lies again. Trace is a good guy, but he can't deal with what he thinks has happened. Brindle finally realizes she has to come clean with everyone, but is it too late for her and Trace?
This one kept me coming back again and again to listen some more. The narration by Savannah Peachwood and Brian Pallino was very good.
I was given a complimentary copy of this audio book. All thoughts are my own.

Great story

** spoiler alert ** Brindle and I are a lot alike. Stubborn, hard headed and do not like to be told you can't do something.
Trace and Brindle are perfect for each other. They have been together off and on for years but always find their way back to each other. Brindle goes to Paris to get away and think about her life and where it is going. While there she finds out that she is pregnant and decides to stay longer to think things through.

While she is gone, Trace goes crazy with worry about her. He wonders why she needs to go all the way to Paris to figure her shit out. When she finally returns they meet up at a Halloween party his family always has in their barn. Brindle lets the cat out of the bag that she is pregnant and Trace immediately thinks she slept with someone else who got her pregnant. She had planned to tell him that he is the father but after his accusation she decides to let him believe he is not.

In true Trace and Brindle fashion they talk and work things out. They have been together for years and know that they are meant to be. The community really rallies around them when they learn the truth about Trace being the father of Brindle's baby.
This audio book has both a female and male narrator which sometimes can be hit or miss. This was definitely a hit. Savanna Peachwood and Brian Polino are the narrators and they totally had me wanting more. I listen to my audio books in the car and I didn't want to get out of the car. I was kept engrossed the whole time. You will love the Montgomery and Jerhico families.

A Wild Right!

Melissa has given us a fantastic story! Brindle and Trace had been lovers at a very young age. Brindle had become a teacher and Trace worked his father’s ranch. Brindle left Trace behind and went to Paris to try to figure out where life was taking her. While there, she discovered she was expecting Trace’s child. When she got back they had fights and lies between them. I loved the touch of humor in it! Savanna Peachwood and Brian Pallino were the perfect narrators for this one. They made me think I was watching a movie.

I've been waiting for this story

Audiobook Review… Wild and Crazy Trace and Brindle are two characters that I heard in my head from the first time they were introduced to me. Their voices are sexy, sweet, and sassy. I wasn’t sure a narrator would be able to capture all the spunky they have but Savannah Peachwood and Brian Pallino managed to capture the spunky, the love, and the fun of these two. They let all the emotions Trace and Brindle felt while figuring out how to be a couple and how to be parents come flowing out perfectly with the tone of their voices. I have become a huge fan of the dual narrator audiobooks and Melissa Foster choice the correct two to tell this wonderful story.

eBook Review…I have waited and waited for Brindle and Trace’s story. They have loved, fought, and made up so many times that I just knew that when they finally accepted their love for each other it would be so perfect, so marvelous, and so steamy. Melissa Foster wrote the perfect story for these two. I cried, I laughed, I shook my head, and I couldn’t stop reading.

Brindle never lies, until she tells the biggest lie to Trace. As she backtracks through the lie, works to tell the truth to Trace and her family, she learns so much about herself and what she wants out of life. It was wonderful to see her come around, find herself and see how it leads to her happiness. Trace also has to change his ways, come around to loving Brindle forever, and not let her push him away when the going gets a little tough.

I loved how Melissa Foster showed how it truly takes two to make a relationship work. She didn’t place blame on any one character when things didn’t go smoothly. She shows how compromise is important to a happy relationship and that relationships are not easy but they are so worth putting the work into.
