Outback Bridegroom (Koomera Crossing) Reviews
This is a middle book in a series, so I felt like I had parachuted into unknown territory at times. The central romance is a second chance between a supermodel heroine and an outback station owner hero. They were high school sweethearts, had an intense sexual relationship, and it all came to an end when the heroine left at 19 to get away from her toxic family. Hero wanted to marry, but the heroine knew she wasn't ready.Now, ten years later, the heroine is back for the funeral of her evil grandmother. Evil mom is still around, but beta dad is committing adultery and has asked for a divorce. (This was not handled well at all. Just because your wife is evil, it still doesn't justify adultery. Get a divorce first Beta Dad, who never stood up for your daughter).Hero is at the funeral, eating his heart out and vowing to never be involved with the heroine again. The hero's mother invites the heroine to his home as her guest. Heroine agrees because she is done being a supermodel and she wants the hero back.Hero sulks and agonizes and says hurtful things to the heroine, but heroine just stays calm and predicts they will be together again. This was such a strange dynamic, to be honest. The hero played the part of Penny Jordan heroine who will never love another. The heroine played the part of the Penny Jordan hero who had to leave to self-actualize. I really didn't like either one of them. The hero whined too much. The heroine was smugly complacent. They both had sexual partners in the ten years apart. *sigh*Besides the side story of the beta dad and evil mom, the heroine's brother's story was brought up again. (Secret baby was presumed dead due to the evil grandma's machinations, but was found after 15 years. He's finally marrying his baby mama.) There was also an unresolved thread about a buried treasure. There was an attempted rape of the heroine by one of the ranch hands, but after the hero saved her the heroine declared she had it all under control. *double sigh*Outback checklist:Party with all the prominent families in attendanceExpedition to trap wild horses for tamingRescue of stranded motorists by planeHero's skill with piloting, horses, managing a stationYe old history of the white settlersFlora and Fauna descriptions.
