Publisher's Summary

“I’ll admit it. He makes my blood sing. But a man like me? I’m not supposed to be with other men.”
 

Oliver Suarez just wants the simple life. He’s finally free from prison, having been convicted for a crime he didn’t commit, and he could spend the rest of his life working hard in the sunshine for a little pay and the feeling of fresh air on his skin. When he’s given the chance to work on Dyer Ranch, he grabs the opportunity with both hands. And when he’s given the chance to be with Quinn Dyer, he’s forced to come to terms with a lifetime of holding himself back from love.
 

“I don’t make excuses for the ways that I enjoy myself. But maybe...with him...it can be more than a quick roll in the hay.”
 

Quinn might not have wanted to be a rancher, but he can’t deny that his family has poured blood, sweat, and tears into their land for six generations, and he’s not about to be the one to lose it. It feels like he’s fighting on all fronts - which is why Oliver is such a great distraction. But when real feelings grow out of a bit of fun, Quinn has to decide: he’s already taking a gamble with the ranch. Can he also take a gamble with his heart?
 

Welcome to Worthington, Texas, where the heat doesn't just rise in the summer - you'll feel it all year long in these stories of older men and their younger lovers. Every audiobook in the Worth It series can be listened to on its own, but with so many familiar characters to love, why stop with just one? This audiobook features a hardworking ranch family, the courage to be yourself, and one big idea that might just save the day.

A Relationship Worth Exploring

When Oliver Suarez is released from prison, after being wrongly accused of murder, he goes to work on the Dyer ranch. On the ranch, he is introduced to Quinn Dyer, co-owner of the ranch. Oliver has denied his sexual orientation for years. Quinn helps him to come to terms with it. As the two men get to know each other, as each gets past their own personal roadblocks, their feelings for each other grow. All of the stories in this series have been great. This is certainly one of my favorites. I highly recommend listening to this book and getting to know Oliver and Quinn. The narration by Nikola was great, as it always is. Thank you Peter, for this wonderful story.

A good listen

There are things I enjoyed about this book. I liked that Oliver was newly out of jail, exonerated, and free to move on with his life. What I really liked was that it wasn’t easy for him. Those who have been wrongly convicted face an uncertain future when released. And they aren’t the men they were went they went up for a crime they didn’t commit. (And there are women in the same position – not a great place to be.)

That Quinn is willing to give Oliver a chance speaks to the young man’s character. He’s carrying a heavy burden – the sixth-generation legacy of the ranch and a mother who is unwell but unwilling to admit something might be wrong. I think we all have a stubborn person in our lives, so I related to that as well. Oliver and Quinn coming together wasn’t inevitable – Oliver didn’t even see himself as gay. Or not that he’d been willing to admit. That the younger Quinn is so affable to persuasive speaks to his strong character.

Where things fell a little flat for me was that in the beginning it was introduced that Quinn was looking for a ‘daddy’. Now, I’m all for Daddy Kink. One of my favorite tropes. But this book never hit that mark. Quinn calls Oliver ‘Uncle Ollie’ but that’s pretty much as far as it goes. Near the end Oliver is able to solve Quinn’s problems, but it felt forced. Other than this minor quibble, it was a good book. Although it’s the eight in the series, it was the first one I’ve read. I wasn’t lost but I may go back to previous ones to meet all those characters

Nikola Muckajev is a new narrator to me and I enjoyed his narration. He has narrated other books in this series and I will definitely consider picking them up. This audio was enjoyable.

Love in the middle of a crisis!

Wow! This book is proof that love can bloom anywhere and that there is nothing more important than protecting who you love, even if it means losing your land. It also helps that love came up with the perfect solution just in time.

Redemption, Love, and doing what's right

This is a story of redemption, love, and doing what's right.

Quinn & Oliver met after Oliver was released from prison for a crime he didn't commit. Oliver went to work on Quinn's ranch. They started a relationship of sorts.

Quinn's mother needed heart surgery but refused putting Quinn in a position of either selling some of the ranch land or go bankrupt. Oliver had a plan!

Read the book and you will enjoy the journey.

I enjoyed the listen

The narration was spot on, distinct character voices, soothing and well paced.

The story was okay. Not my favorite, but entertaining enough to listen to through the end.

Loved Oliver

Oliver newly released from jail goes to work as a handyman at Dyer Ranch. He meets Quinn and they fall into a relationship. Quinn does casual, but to Ollie its more. I loved Ollie, he was honest with himself and what he wants and was a great character. Quinn pissed me off some, but you know he's going thru a lot, so it can be forgiven. I really enjoyed this book. I thought the narration was okay. It didn't really add to the story for me, but I didn't think it detracted either.

The Ranch

I found this audio very interesting. The story has a nice feel to it with the main characters playing well off of each other.
A young ranch owner burdened down with a lot of problems that have to be solved, and care for his mother with a serious heart problem is a story within itself. Yet he finds love with a person that was wrongfully accused of murder. How could a good story not happen.

Loved this book!

I've loved listening to this series. This book is another great installment. The characters are lovable and real. And as usual characters from the other books in the series pop in which I enjoy.

Good story, eh narration

The story was good and I was happy to see what happened with Oliver but I felt like it was a rushed ending and things didn't really get resolved. I don't know While I enjoyed it, it felt like something was missing. The narrator has a pleasant enough voice and did an ok job of it but I just couldn't reconcile the characters to the voice they didn't seem to match. It's a quick listen so that made it easier to get through.

Couldn’t put it down

This is the eighth book in the Worth It Series with well-developed characters. I was looking forward to Oliver and Quinn’s story and this did not disappoint. This story is about Oliver who just got out of prison for a wrongful convection and is just looking for a simple life; however, struggles with his sexuality. Quinn is a rancher who has never really given anyone the chance at a love in the past and is struggling to keep his ranch and family heritage alive. While these two men find solutions to their problems, they are there for each other. I love this series. Each book I have listen to I haven’t been able to put down until it finished. I love the dynamic the author brings to his story’s. The narration was well done.

Very enjoyable

I enjoyed this a lot, there's something really awesome about an m/m ranch romance!
There was a good, engaging plot, and I felt for the characters.
The narrator, Nikola Muckajev, was great, he had a really calming tone that did something special to me.
I did feel as though the story ended a little abruptly, and perhaps could have benefited from an epilogue. I also think that the last word of the story needs a pause before the "This has been..." chapter. It transitioned right into it and pulled me jarringly from the end of the narrative.
All in all, a good listen. Both the author and narrator were new to me, and I'll definitely be checking out more works by both! Great job!
