This is about Maddy and Luke, who also was in the first book, Winning the Player. Maddy was Aubree's best friend and Hunter's cousin.
Maddy McIntyre is a city girl but leaves Adelaide to take a new teaching job out in the country. She needs and wants a new start because just 6 months prior she had her heart stomped on by her first and only love of her life, Luke. This job just happens to be located in Broken Hill, where Luke's living. She is secretly wishing that Luke will give her another chance to show him that she knows they belong together. She settles in quickly, makes friends and starts partying and living her life.
Luke White has issues and problems that he keeps to himself. In fact, in the 10 months he was with Maddy, he never told her any of his issues. The reason he breaks up with her was because issues at home had finally come to blows so he has to move back home. He breaks off their relationship with reasons such as Maddy being immature and she is high maintenance. He works hard at his station(US it means Ranch) and focuses on his work and getting things back on track. He keeps his mind off Maddy because he is miserable without her but knows its for the best. So to his surprise, he sees Maddy in town and cant believe she is there. He actually is pissed over it. But he cant avoid her forever.
Can Maddy prove to Luke that she is mature and they deserve one another? Will Luke let go of his past and let Maddy in? Can Maddy leave the city life and settle down to be a county girl while truly being happy?
Overall this was a good read. It is full of angst.
My issue is that its a "romance" but the whole book is them going back and forth and it got tiresome.

In Charming the Outback, the reader gets to read about Maddy’s story and her second-chance love story. Maddy packs up and leaves to a new town and it may have to do with the fact that the guy who broke her heart lives there. I love second-chance romance stories a lot so I dived into this story so happy! Maddy has spunk! What Aubree wouldn’t do with Hunter is what Maddy does with Luke—she keeps him at bay after the first temptation and doesn’t forgive him easily. You go, Maddy! The chemistry was sizzling. You could just feel it while reading it.
I thought this story was more on the sweet side and a little slower than the first but it is still quite enjoyable. I read Winning the Player and Charming the Outback without any intentions of reviewing it—maybe that’s why I enjoyed both so much—but I changed my mind and decided to review both books! The secondary characters are also a great addition to the story, even Aubree and Hunter make appearances in this story. I am highly anticipating the third book in the story! I can’t wait for more fun to come my way.
Maddy moves to a new town to start teaching. She meets Luke at a bar, and he's pissed that she's there. They finally decide to give it another try, but Luke is only available on some weekends due to his job at an outback station. Maddy decides to try training at an outback station to show Luke that she's not materialistic and can hang with it. Little does she know that the same station she volunteers at ends up being the same station that Luke owns.
Once again the arguing starts, because they kept secrets from one another. Within every argument either Maddy or Luke assumes why the other does what he/she does, and the internal monologues get a bit tiresome.
True love wins at the end.
I am reviewing for Kylie's Fiction Addiction.
The writing was good, it flowed well. I really wanted to love this book, because I really enjoyed the first book and Maddy was my favorite. She was whiny and immature in this book, in my opinion.
Like I said, it is written well and flows nicely. It just didn't do it for me. It pains me to rate this at a 3.5 but the ending felt rushed and the whiny attitude just didn't do Maddy justice.

Love this dynamic of taking a city girl and putting her in a country setting, all for love. I also loved Maddy's mental conflict in trying to figure out if this designer dress wearing, Jimmy Choo shoe loving city girl could survive and thrive in the country, for her man.
I only have one request from the author, can we find someone for Zane, please (Loved him).
