Publisher's Summary

When Fergus Galloway takes on a research trip to a tiny mining town in the far Western Australian outback, he’s as far from Sydney as he can get.

Which is entirely the point.

He arrives in Pannalego totally unprepared for the baking heat, unprepared for the people who call it home, unprepared for the craziness and the laughs. And absolutely unprepared for the man he meets there who steals his heart.

Davo is a mining man, as rugged as he is gorgeous. Loves his found family, loves where he lives, and loves his life. He also loves the feel of soft fabric on his skin.

What was supposed to be a short field trip changes Fergus’s life. Going to a place many call uninhabitable might turn out to be the only place he wants to live.

The side character were fantastic, but
The bird was the best!! Really fun story!!

Truly delightful!

Loved being transported to Australia's hottest desert, Pannalego, along with Fergus Galloway, a researcher needing distance from his home town of Sydney. Loved meeting Davo, a mining supervisor with gorgeous looks, engineering/mechanical abilities, and a penchant for lovely skirts. It was fun to meet the iconoclasts populating the mining town. Found family indeed! I was super delighted that the angst level was low, low, low. N.R. Walker writes beautifully descriptive scenes of the land, the sky, the mutual pleasure of two men finding one another. There were points in the book that made me laugh out loud, and since I'm wearing bone conducting headphones, I'm sure any observers were confused to witness a woman grocery shopping and laughing to herself.
Glen Lloyd was a wonderful narrator. I will definitely look for more of his narrated books.
Thank you N.R. Walker, thank you Glen Lloyd, for making four and a half hours of my day truly delightful.

Loved it!

This was a relisten for me from my original read when the book came out and I still loved it just the same. So stinking cute. If you loved Red Dirt Heart, this and Imago will fit the bill for you!

entertaining

📖 Story comment: Good pace, likeable characters, nice flow, relatively low drama. I would have liked it to be longer though!
Great spin on what I would call very Australian, from the harsh but glorious conditions of the Australian desert to a Cockatoo who swears like a sailor and some local characters with nicknames as colourful as an outback sunset.
Was perfect for a lazy Sunday listen.

🎧 Narrator comment: Glen Lloyd has done a good job on the narration, I had no problem distinguishing characters and the rhythm, inflections and intonations all worked to bring the book to life.

Hooka for the win!

5 star performance! I was laughing out loud when I heard Hooka - those were the best moments!

I loved Davo and the small mining town, however the story itself seemed a bit hasty - a lot of sex between Fergus and Davo, but I couldn't feel the real connection.

So freaking sweet

I think I fell in love with Davo the first time he was described. I fell even harder the further I read.

This story was told only through Fergus' POV and can only be described as wholesome. Fergus never judges Davo but does not want to wear booty shorts for some odd reason. He also finds his found family in this collection of people who live and work in the remote mining town.

The ending of the epilogue got me, it was just so cute.

The narration was unbelievably well done, Glen Lloyd is now going to be one of my favorites.

More Hooka please

Loved this story even if it is a little contrived. Wish it had been longer and maybe have some angst filled situations involving a snake or two. Regardless, the best parts involved Hooka, the cocky. Listen to the story, you won’t be disappointed unless you dislike the use of crude language. The play date involving Fergus and Hooka was hilarious…….as were the reasons behind some of the nicknames….

Different and Heart Warming

I recently discovered N. R. Walker, and became an instant fan. This story had many great aspects that I enjoy in a book: low angst, quirky and lovable found family, an interesting pet, and many more. I love the sweetness, and how nobody batted an eyelash Davo's fondness of skirts. Beautiful story line. If I had to say one thing that I didn't care for it would have to be how quickly they fell in love. Also, it was a little rushed for my taste. Other than that, I truly enjoyed this book.

Awww, I adore short romance but this one...

I just get engaged with this one , always knowing something new from Australia, the characters were the best, each of them including the bird.I wish to this story get longer, Fargus and Davo are so cute.Im starting to love this narrator, everything in his emotions and words are super sticky to keep with you when you listen the book. Keeping this as one of my favorite books.

Quirky Romance

Simply put, a gorgeous and beautiful romance, where two people meet and discover they're perfect for each other. The writing is first class, as is the dialogue, and the secondary characters. I just loved it.

Ok

This was an easy book to listen to, there wasn't much to it except the growing relationship between the two main characters. The narrator was OK .

Outback boys …

N.R. Walker writes beautiful books and Davo is no exception .
Being an Australian I felt as if I was there , the heat , humidity the people…

Fergus see’s Davo then the story really begins.
Their connection is sweet and wonderful.
I honestly loved this book , it’s certainly a must read .
The audiobook is amazing, narrator Glen Lloyd is 100% perfect.

Sweet, fun and highly entertaining!

This is a super sweet and easy read, full of wonderful characters and a outstanding setting.
Lots of fun elements too with a swearing bird and small town traditions, this read will put a huge smile on your face from beginning to end.
Glen Lloyd delivers a masterful performance in the audio version - swearing bird and all!
