    This started out as a typical DP book, but parts of it frustrated me to no end. Cane is a war veteran who's lost his arm. Instead of dealing with it, he spends time wooing women and creating bar fights. And if things dont get his way...tantrums. The only person who can pacify and rescue him is his 12 year junior neighbor Bodie, who works, studies and takes care of her sick grandfather. Now I get that Cane has issues, but he was a dbag and mean/verbally abusive (idiotic) hero throughout most of the This started out as a typical DP book, but parts of it frustrated me to no end.

He called her names, refused to help her, almost pushed her to a bad situation, and even that kiss after marriage pissed me off. I know Bodie is supposed to be sweet and in love and having a million problems, but she let him use her like a doormat and easily forgave his every stupidity. Yes, I like parts of it but overall VERY frustrating. 2.5/5

Así es como he conocido a Diana Palmer y sus historias de vaqueros. La conocí con el primer libro de esta serie El camino más largo y como seguía sin llamarme lo sufciente ningún libro decidí seguir con el segundo de la serie al ser lecturas amenas y ágiles, sin grandes complicaciones. Parecen estar escritas en otra época, lo que me hace gracia, es como si el libro estuviera escrito por un viejecita que suspira y se queja de como va el mundo y suelta algunas críticas aleccionadoras en sus escritos. Y viendo la edad de la escritora, casi 70 años, me parece que eso es exactamente lo que es. Lo que llamó mi atención es que el protagonista hubiera perdido un brazo en la guerra, los hombres atormentados y con algún problema de ese tipo me conquistan porque cansa dar siempre con protagonistas que son el súmmun de la masculinidad, el atractivo y la capacidad, casi dioses del Olimpo. Me gustan personas más comunes y corrientes pero no por ello menos extraordinarias. Aún así ha habido varias cosas que no me han gustado mucho. Para empezar el comportamiento de él y la forma que tiene ella de perdonarlo taaaan rápido es increíble, junto con las excusas que da que a mi modo de ver no justifica nada. (view spoiler)[Vamos a ver, el día de tu boda te deja en la habitación, baja supuestamente a por unas aspirinas, tarda siglos en volver y cuando bajas a por él está en el bar sonriéndole a una rubia despampanante a la que besa y tú lo perdonas más tarde (al menos sí hizo las maletas y se largo en ese mismo momento que es lo que yo hubiera hecho) simplemente porque te dice que "lo hizo a próposito sabiendo que estabas ahí porque se sentía atrapado al verse casado" ¡¿Perdona?! Dónde exactamente está la parte por la que ese comportamiento sería excusable, porque yo no la veo por ningún lado. Y no sólo eso, sino que incluso antes de hablarlo vas y te tiras a él nada más verlo en tu apartamento haciéndo la comida ¿No habría sido más normal molestarse porque hubiera entrado como Pedro por su casa haciéndo valer un matrimonio que él no respetó el mismo día de la boda? (hide spoiler)] El final es bonito y me ha entrado curiosidad por conocer la historia del hermano de Moire, su vecina y el gallo. En resumen, es una lectura entretenida que es lo que esperaba de este tipo de libros. Nunca leeré uno de estos pensando que me voy a encontrar la octava maravilla pero cumple su función: me entretienen mientras estoy en esos raros momentos en los que no me apetece leer nada o no encuentro nada mejor que leer.

    Did not finish this book. After 10% of reading I decided that although I wanted to know the outcome of the story of Cane and Bodie I had to move on. The potential was there for a great story if only there was a little more depth to the characters and situations rather than flitting about with unrelated memories to the scene.

    This was another book that I wanted to like so much more than I did. I understand the usage of virgins in romance novels, but come on!

I appreciated the personality of Bodie, but felt that the strength of her feelings towards sex and propriety were at odds with her own nature. The story was good and I loved the incorporation of the war injury. Cane's flawed character is forced to face some harsh facts and take responsibility for his actions (I liked that part quite a bit!). HOWEVER, I found the dialogue to be quite lacking and even laughable in parts. It didn't make sense. While the majority of the book flowed okay, there were several awkward moments where stuff was written directly into the narrative or dialogue rather than addressed over the natural course of the story. I am slightly curious as to Cort's book, but I don't know if I can read about another absolutely faithful, devout virgin that is shown the ways of the world by an older, wiser, and debauched man. We aren't living in the 1800's. These books make me feel like the responsibility of remaining chaste and pure is solely rested on the woman's shoulders. What? Have sex or don't have sex. Remain pure or go totally wild child. I find it hard to believe that there are so many absolutely chaste 20-somethings available for corruption by hedonistic-by-nature men in such a small area. Whew! *Rant over*

Bodie was like a child/lost puppy, easily lead & stupidly forgiving, I felt that almost everyone used her tender-heart & naiveness against her, especially Cane, i really hated that. I would read more by this author, especially Tank's story.

    Easy to predict. Bodie was written as too naive character in my opinion. She was supposed enrolled in college classes where you will have emphasis in the science field. She was painted to have no knowledge of the human body and chemistry in my opinion. You can be a woman of faith and still date and kiss some before you are 22 years old. I would have enjoyed Cane's story more up against someone with backbone and more wordly experience, not someone who slept around but at least made out with someo Easy to predict.

I wanted to cheer on Cane as he faced getting back into the real world after losing his arm from an IED. I read book 4 in the series first by mistake. Glad I read it first or I don't know if I would have picked it up after this book. Seemed cookie cutter almost.

    A nice read. I like how the story still retains it's sweetness even with the nasty things that both characters go through. The author does a wonderful job creating wonderful interesting characters and continuing the storyline but still keeping Cane and Bodie's story unique.

Bodie is a 22 year old virgin who's in love with a 34 year old veteran who's lost an arm and is drowning himself in booze. Bodie also has an evil step-father and a dying grandfather. And she's poor as a church mouse. Here's where the weirdness comes in. Palmer has taken to task all kinds of hot button political issues in this book but mostly the obscene cost of health care. It's clear she has strong feelings on the issue and luckily her feelings jive with mine. I don't think I've ever read a romance novel with such a clear political message. I just had to check. The Affordable Healthcare Act was upheld by the Supreme Court in June 2012. So this was definitely a political statement. Go Diana Palmer! The flip side of her liberal views on health care is her conservative, sexually inexperienced heroine who is saving herself for a husband. There's a great deal of discussion on sexual mores with Cane unable to fathom how a woman can have such old-fashioned values. Honestly, there are a lot of serious issues at play here. And it's fascinating how she integrates many of them in the character of Bodie. In the silly zone is the computer genius ranch hand (who I believe eventually gets his own book) who's recruited by the FBI and CIA after hacking their systems. Um. Okay. Sure. Then there's a MASSIVE discussion of classical music and film scores with a hint of popular music thrown in because all the Kirk brothers are musical geniuses. Or something to that effect. It was a really strange interlude. And it just so happens Bodie and Cane both have/are getting degrees in anthropology. Which would be fine but there's a big discussion of her classes and they're not classes you'd take as a senior - more like a freshman or sophomore. And I was irked by the vacillating between working on a dinosaur dig (much more likely in the WY area) or Egyptology. While archaeological techniques may be the same, paleontologists are not Egyptologists. But I digress. Bottom line. It's different. I liked it. I'd probably only have gone 3 1/2 but darn GR won't let me do that and I thought it deserved the extra 1/2 just for being a bit out of the ordinary. There's definitely some sex talk but nothing too graphic IMO. It's not a clean book. I think I'll read brother Tank's story because he's another wounded warrior-type, I'm curious about him and my library has it available. I'll most likely skip the rest.

I'm sorry, but I have a hard time believing that any 22 year old woman this day and age-especially one who has been in college for 3 or so years could be so naive and innocent as our heroine. But she was, with her puppy dog loyalty for a man who was either making drunken physical passes at her or insulting everything she was. There were other things about the book I disliked. I'm kind of shocked that the editor at Harlequin missed a glaring error. In the beginning of the book, Bodie, who is an anthropology major in college, talks about finding the missing link. That's all good. Then a few chapters in, she's talking about digging up dinosaur bones. Hmm... soooo, that would make her a paleontologist. Later on she's talking about working with an archaeologist. I'm confused. I know, probably silly to pick that up, but, hey, it's just something that sticks. I don't think I'm going to be picking up any more Diana Palmer books for a while.

    Cane Kirk returned from the war bitter and angry. He’d sacrificed an arm to save his fellow soldiers, but he certainly didn’t feel like a hero. Women called him a cripple! When his demons got the better of him, Cane drank to excess, demolishing the bar and fighting every man who tried to stop him.

She was in love with Cane, no matter what he said or did. However, Cane was very different from Bodie. He came from money. The meager amount that Bodie made could barely keep her Grandpa and her in groceries. When her stepfather raised the rent and her Grandpa’s heart began to fail him, the costs suddenly became too high. Despite her pride, Bodie had no choice but to ask Cane for a loan. Unfortunately, Cane thought she wanted money for favors. His angry accusations that Bodie was a loose woman cut her to the quick, leaving her no choice but to do something unthinkable. Desperate now, Bodie agreed to her stepfather’s indecent proposal. She’d pose for sexy photographs in exchange for a few dollars, if the money purchased her Grandpa’s medicine. When Cane learned the bitter truth, would he find the price she’d had to pay too high?

He's way to caught up with himself. A bit funny because in Wyoming Tough, he's tender with Morie. Bodie, on the other hand, is such a meek girl. I know you're in love, I know he's shaving and look very handsome. But seriously? Do you just jump to big whoo-ha without talking first? Good god. I'm annoyed, but still I enjoyed reading this book. Diana Palmer's typical storyline, Hero and heroine. ;)

    OK, I read the first book in the series, and didn't like it because the guy that the MC Fell for was a jerk.

    Sometimes a book gets a three star rating because it was poorly written or because it is not a good book. That is not the case with this book. I think the writing was decent, and I think the characters were likeable, but this PG-rated love story just did nothing special for me. I do not know what else to say about it, other than I liked it, it was good, but it wasn't overly exciting and nothing happened that will make me remember this book.

    Well written. Typical storyline, girl next door becomes infatuated with one of the neighbor's sons. Cane returned from the war maimed and bitter. She struggles to contain her attraction even though he treats her (Bodie) and everyone else around him with disdain. Through out the book he's depressed and difficult to deal with.

It just had that same feeling that I had been missing over her newer releases or at least the hardcover books that she puts out every year. This one more had the relationship building, character building, and just more what happens to the couple and how it effects their relationship along the way not a story where all this drug war/lord stuff is going on and the romance is the secondary plot with barely any development of the relationship where it seems almost unbelievable that the couple has fallen in love in the first place. So that was a good thing. I almost started to give up on Diana Palmer's new releases all together thinking that she was just going into a totally new direction that I just wasn't enjoy or excited about. But this book restored my faith in her as an author, getting me back to the Diana Palmer I love and adore. This book is her typical old formula, but one that totally works for me with the young, poor, innocent heroine, who has been in love with the hero forever and would do anything for him while the hero is this older, well off (financially) man, rounder, who wants nothing to do with love or marriage and just wants to meet his needs and that's it. He doesn't even consider the heroine a possible love interest, or if does he thinks she too young for him and basically writes her off and at times is very mean to her to keep her at arm's length so she doesn't go getting any ideas about him. And that's the basic setup in this story as well as her older ones, which even though are predictable and may not be such a modern notion in this day with the innocent hero and the older man that will teach her the ways of love, I still thoroughly enjoy that and just enjoying seeing that storyline played out with the push and pull/tension between the characters showing this kind of love-hate relationship. I love, love-hate relationship stories filled with all this angst and sexual tension along the way with some passionate scenes thrown in here and there to keep me interesting in the couple as well as to them grow as a couple. Of coarse they get their happily ever after, but not after some misunderstanding and conflicts along the way one the hero usually is the one that has to make up to the heroine especially if he's been extremely mean and cruel to the heroine. I just love watching it play out before my eyes, and just something about those stories just really suck me in. Wyoming Fierce is book number two in the Wyoming Men series featuring the love story of Cane Kirk and Bodie Mayes. His brothers each have their own stories in the trilogy with his brother Mallory being the subject of book number one and his other brother Tank being book number three. I read this one first even though there's a book number one featuring Mallory, and I knew that going in and even had that one, but I heard or saw someone talking about this book so I decided to pick up this book and read it before the others. And really I didn't need to read book number one in order to read this one though it does tell us that Mallory and Morie are married in this one, they're love story is part of book number one, Wyoming Tough, though it's not really any big surprise, since I figured they would get together in the end since it's their love story, but it didn't effect the plot of this one or really giving anything away too much or there's something in book number one I had to understand to get book 2, but that wasn't the case. I'm sure when I go back to read number one, there will be little things that I recognize or figure out and say to myself okay that's where that comes from, but not a huge deal or anything and I will go back and read book one sometime. Anyway basically the story begins with Bodie, who was trying to study for her exams for college gets a call from a local bar asking to pick up Cane, who is sticking drunk and destroying the place and no one can stop him. In fact it's only Bodie that can stop him. Cane only allows her to take him out and even talks to her even though he's blitzed at the time and says some outrageous things of an intimate nature to the innocent Bodie, which kills her because she's in love with him. The reason Cane goes on these benders is because is mad and frustrated and just looks at himself down because he had lost an arm in war time, making him feel low and seeing himself as nothing more than a cripple and no woman would want him now except for his money. So, Bodie picks up and tells him he shouldn't be doing this and blah blah blah that he wasn't half a man like he thought because of his injury and just he needed to stop. She gets home and the two share passionate interlude. So Cane was definitely this down character and just felt sorry for himself a good portion through the book and just doing stupid things along the way because he doesn't see himself as a man anymore despite his brothers and Bodie telling him otherwise. Though Bodie does make him feel better at times and he is happy around her. But lots of misunderstanding and circumstances ensue that cause them to have this friction all the way throughout the book, and definitely had this push pull aspect to it. And Cane was very hard on poor Bodie when she didn't deserve it, and was just doing what she could for her grandfather, who was sick and dying and her sleezeball stepfather was threatening to take away the house from the grandfather and leave him homeless unless he paid double his rent. Well, they didn't have a lot of money and it was running out and she was loosing hope that she would be able to afford rent, medication, food, gas, etc. so she had go the extremes, even if those extremes are wrong even for a moral person like she was. At first she tries to ask Cane for the money by asking for loan, but he cuts her off then accuses her of being a prostitute and only his money, which is the reason she allows him to kiss her. And he would not hear otherwise never giving her the fair chance she deserve and is more willing to believe that she's after money to spend on frivolous things than she's interested in him. So there's a blow up there, and she just feeling low of the lows and decides to take the last resort option to get the money and that is to pose in some posed, compromising photos for her stepfather who vows to give her the money after she's done. And it does happen, but before it could go into the more explicit type of pictures and Cane and his brother stop it. Cane comes to the realization of what he did and knows that he is totally wrong about Bodie and her motivations for asking him for money. He just feels terrible and totally guilty that he didn't listen to her and that she feels that she had no other options, but this one. And to compound the guilt in him, Bodie's grandfather dies that same night, leaving her world in shambles and her no place to go because her stepfather takes possession of the house now. So she's really down and depressed, and he feels guilty and just all the emotion surrounding that situation, oozing off the pages. Though it does proceed to bring them closer together with him comforting her and apologizing for his actions. And just when they seem to be on the right path they get into this huge fight where he insists he doesn't want to get married and he could sleep with women without the benefit of it while she believes the complete opposite. Sot that's another big blow up there, causing him to get drunk and nearly killed in an accident. Then she is all woe is me, and fears that he will die and begs him to stay, telling this to him while unconscious and even reveals her love for him and just sorry she is for causing him any pain. Of coarse he wakes up and they get closer again, but not without one final hiccup that gets in the way before they can truly be together and bask in their love for one another. And as all that's going on some of the outside issues are resolved with the stepfather, her house, and that fact that she was destitute. It wraps up quiet nicely, giving Bodie what she deserves in the end. The relationship definitely goes from one extreme to the other, but the pacing was nice in the beginning in the middle as the development of their relationship happen with passionate moments thrown in here and there. The had issues to work through especially on his end, where he had to wake up and realize that this disability doesn't have to define him as less of a men unless he does himself and he has to deal with those feelings and the drinking and all that good stuff. I like seeing that, and seeing that it is a struggle for him and not some quickly fix that happens over night. So that's good. Though I hated some of the stuff he said and did to Bodie during that time because he was self-loathing, but it also shows how much he grows throughout the coarse of this book. And I just like the whole buildup of the entire relationship, showing how his issues are effecting their relationship and just how he deals with her as well. What I didn't like though is near the end when there is a lot of summary going on here and there from the times she leaves him until he shows again. Granted weeks and possible even months have past between those events, spacing them out and Diana needs to tell the reader what is going on, but it's mostly through Bodie's point of view and never Cane's. So we have no idea what he is going through emotionally or what he is doing, though Morie does fill in Bodie through Skype messages and telephone calls, but I think it would have been better if I was shown this instead of just told. Just so we know where Cane is at emotional. Is he missing Bodie? Is it killing him for her to be away from him? Does he realize that she's more important than he originally thought? Are his feeling changing for Bodie? Because at the point we last see him from his point of view he is a reluctant groom who does something to ensure that Bodie runs away from him and leaves. So, what changes for him? I wanted to see this and get his view on this just to give me the scope of what's going on in his head. Because when he does show up and claim to love her, it's almost too unrealistic because I never get to witness the change in him because I never see his side of things, and just seems a little rushed his feeling changing for her just like that, even though it wasn't, but I need that be shown to me otherwise it just doesn't feel right and the shift in him seems too quick. And I am not even sure if he's in love with her even though he does because I see no real evidence to the contrary. So I didn't like that so much. Just the ending felt too rushed after this big buildup of the entire book, slow building and building to a simmer before getting to a boil. So it would have been nice if his growth and realization happened that way too, showing me how miserable he truly was without Bodie in his life and how she made it better for him. Also thing I am not a fan of, is the fact that the only reason he asks her to marry him is because he fears his brother will take Bodie away and he wants and knows that's the only way to get her. Then he goes and gets all reluctant that he's married and does something stupid so she leaves. I just didn't like that not only because it is crappy thing to do to Bodie, but also because his motive are not sincere at all and does it for completely selfish reasons without the benefit of love either. Why Bodie even agrees to marry him knowing this (I know, I know, she loves him) in the first place when she pretty much knows that is the reason he asks her in the first place? Is just beyond me especially when she's preaching for most of the books she wants to marry for love and nothing else while he states emphatically that he will never marry because he doesn't want to. A guy isn't going to do a 360, I'm sorry so why agree when she knows that it'll probably lead to heartbreak down the road? And just his motives for asking are totally unfair and selfish like I said, so he gets what he wants and needs and doesn't even think about her feelings in the process. Actually he only thinks about her feelings in the respect that her love would get him what he wants, and that's it. It is just beyond a cruel thing to do especially after everything she has done for him in life by being there for him. How dare he? Then I have to believe that his attitude changes on marriage and love just like that when we don't get to see what's in his head. No way. I just think she is crazy for agreeing in the first place and just his reasoning for marriage wasn't a good one, though I guess that's the point and show how wrong he is and that he realizes that he didn't do right by her. But still. That didn't give me favorable impression towards him, which is probably why I wanted to see his point of view during their separation just so I could see the change in him myself, but since I didn't then I still question his feelings for her and how he made this huge jump from not wanting to be married to being happy about it and loving her. I guess I am just not a hundred percent sold on his feelings for her. But overall I did enjoyed this book and was glad that Diana Palmer is going back to her glory days, which I missed. But she put her familiar themes in this one that I come to expect from Diana and what I liked from her old classic ones. Hopefully the other two in the series are like this as well, though more believability with the heroes feelings for the heroines and not rushed and seen as a little far fetched like was in this one. I just want to see the growth for myself so I can believe it, that's all, or the heroes at least make it up to the heroines in the end. Because I'm not sure if, at least in my view, that Cane totally made it up to Bodie in this one, I think he could have done more and wooed her a tad more to make up all he done, though that's just me. Though to be fair Bodie does forgive him, but she could have not forgiven so easily until he earned it. I like though that the romance is the main plot and not the outside stuff that takes over the novel like some of her more recent books have done, making them a little bit too much and too involved. With her books I expect the romance first the action and suspense secondary. The couple should be the focus and their growth along the way just like in this one. I really enjoyed seeing their growth and development and the pacing was good for most of the book until near the end which feels kind of rushed and unrealistic, I would have liked to see that more development and shown then it was, instead it feels like its a bunch of summaries grouped together. The romance in the book is good, sweet, and passionate at times, and I like how it progress throughout most of the book. I like the drawn out this as well as the high emotions and tension surrounding the pair as they try to have this relationship and get their happily ever after. The little interludes between them are nice see and shows that they do in fact have chemistry together and have this passion for one another that are compounded by deep emotions for one another. So that is nice to see. It just feels like a good old fashion Diana Palmer romance that she does pretty well especially in her earlier books. I loved the love/hate and tension like I always do and just all the heightened emotions, which makes this an enjoyable an enjoyable Diana Palmer book. I hope her formula sticks in future books, because it's what I want to see out of her, and continues to write books just like this one. And I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

    menos de un día me ha durado. pero no por nada, si no porque me he obligado a terminarlo cuanto antes. empezó bastante interesante, me gustaban los personajes y la trama y los problemas que presentaban los protagonistas me resultaron muy interesante, pero eso no duró mucho. La trama fue perdiendo fuerza a medida que abanzaba la historia, hasta el punto de que llegó un momento en el que me daba la sensación de que la autora ya no sabia que más contar e iba metiendo escenas que se iba sacando de la menos de un día me ha durado. pero no por nada, si no porque me he obligado a terminarlo cuanto antes. empezó bastante interesante, me gustaban los personajes y la trama y los problemas que presentaban los protagonistas me resultaron muy interesante, pero eso no duró mucho. La trama fue perdiendo fuerza a medida que abanzaba la historia, hasta el punto de que llegó un momento en el que me daba la sensación de que la autora ya no sabia que más contar e iba metiendo escenas que se iba sacando de la manga y que no aportaban nada en el trascurso de la trama. En definitiva, no había hilo conductor y lo peor es que se le podía haber sacado mucho más partido a los personajes pero la autora no profundiza para nada en ellos: Cane, un himbre ya hrcjo y derecho, suouestamente muy inteligente que se pasa la vida en bares, embirrachandose, metiendose en peleas y lamentandose de que es un tullido. Bondi es una chica que en un principio se la presentaban con grandes aspiraciones y con unos principios muy firmes, pero que se queda en eso... es una simple ilusión, porque finalmente la autora se centra en que se pase todo el tiempo como un perrito faldero del protagonista. ayudando lo, sacándolo de las peleas y suspirando por él.... Mi impresión general es que en ambos se queda en lo superficial y toda la historia gira entorno a los mismos problemas que, finalmente, se solucionan en unas pocas páginas en un final muy precipitado que me ha decepcionado bastante. En definitiva, no lo recomiendo para nada.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I loved this story about Cane Kirk and Bodie Mays. This is a story as old as time of someone who loves fierce but the age difference is a problem. Society has always been ok with it but someone's conscience makes it harder. I like how Diana brings this issue out in this story. She also brings out the issue of losing a limb with Cane Kirk. With a man it can be one of the hardest issues to deal with no matter the age. The fact that someone tears a bar apart I've seen it done in the past over some I loved this story about Cane Kirk and Bodie Mays.

The fact that someone tears a bar apart I've seen it done in the past over some interesting issues. Also gang wars over certain issues. As for Bodie being able to calm Cane that I've seen done many a time. Some people need to go back into history to see that its been done before. Boy what rock have some people been living under. I love the way Diana weaves each of her books with issues that are real and hard to deal with. So Cane swears. That is to be expected with the issues he is dealing with. That is life. I like that she brings back characters from past stories so that you can say hi to them again. Life isn't a bowl of cherries and Diana doesn't show that in a book. Her books are honest and real if you want sweet that isn't here. I like her books and look forward to the next book.
