It was a nice, okay read, nothing remarkable but still able to get me through the end. I liked the setting in Australia. It was good to read a different setting from the USA once in a while.
I liked that Caine's stutters to be constant, not suddenly disappear; I liked that it was part of him. I did think he felt a little younger than his said-32-years-old. I liked Macklin just fine, but he didn't really have anything that stood him out from the rest of the 'gruff', 'strong', 'hard-headed', cowboy/foreman characters I've read.
Not so sure about the progress of Caine and Macklin as a couple. I was actually surprised when the first kiss happened because I didn't feel like they had enough chemistry or sexual attraction to get to that point in the first place. However, it wasn't something I would hugely complain about. Oh, except for the nickname slash endearment (*groans*).
The ending felt abrupt though...
I think I might check out the next book in this series.
