Review: Taming the Outback by Ann B. Harrison

Title: Taming the Outback
By: Ann B. Harrison
My Copy: Ebook from Author
Book Whisperer's Rating: 2/5

Libby is set on taming the outback as she takes over Quincy Station, but can she tame her rough neighbor, Nathan's, hardened heart as well? Nathan Miller rattles Libby's nerves more than she cares to admit. He is the one person that stands between her and the family home that has been left to her. So why then does the man stir her up to such an extent, her body pulses with the need to have him? They do nothing but clash and snap at one another, and he makes no bones about the fact she shouldn't be Quincy's Station's new owner, but back in the city where he thinks she belongs. Having had an unpleasant clash with a "city girl" once before, Nathan does not think Libby has it in her to stick it out. He refuses to give in to his urges. But when Mother Nature brings chaos to Quincy Station and threatens Libby's children, he'll either be proved right in his assumptions or find his barriers taken down by a stubborn woman and her kids.

For some reason, I couldn’t completely immerse myself into this book.  I thought Libby was sweet and her kids were adorable, I thought Nathan was sexy, and Winston and the foreman were a great addition to the story.  However, to me, Nathan was too abrasive.  I understand that he was hurt in the past but he was just out and out rude to Libby and her family.  And although Libby didn’t stand for it, she kept letting him come back into her house for him to scream at her some more.  Nathan was never willing to help and at first, I thought it was because he was promised the land, however in the end he states he never wanted the land.  Unfortunately, his attitude rubbed me the wrong way.
