Laramie Bowman is a true American cowgirl who helps to run her parents’ ranch in Wyoming. Her brother is a rodeo star who has sustained major injuries while competing. His hospital bills are outrageous, and his family is being financially stretched to cover the expenses. As a result, Laramie accepts a three-year contract in Russia to help a multi-millionaire start up a cattle ranch and train the cowhands.
Laramie does not speak Russian so Anastasia Petrova, an interpreter, is hired to assist Laramie in communicating with her staff. Anastasia is single and does not have any family. They are attracted to each other but realize that there would be major problems if they acted on their impulses.
The plot is not very complex. Readers will find no surprises. I also feel there could have been a deeper development of the chemistry between Anastasia and Laramie. I did find it interesting to learn about the legal and societal difficulties that gays face in Russia.
I rate it 3-1/2 out of 5 stars.
I was given this ARC in return for a fair and honest review.
The plot was a bit different then what I am usually reading, in that the story is set in Russia of all places. It is around an American woman that needs to help support her family ranch due to an issue from her brother, so she takes a job in Russia to help run a cattle ranch and train Russian 'cowboys'.
The book is full of robust characters, and the two main female characters are very believable. The story goes at a nice pace, and even though I have no clue what living in the Russia country side would be like, the writing by this author gave me a very believable idea what it might be like.
The book also touches on how homosexuality can be still very dangerous in a foreign country that bans it, so that added a bit of understanding to the Russian characters.
All in all, I enjoyed this book, I came away with a nice feeling for the characters, and was cheering them on in the end that they made the ranch a success.
I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but would have written the same opinion if I had come across this author on my own.
To see my Amazon review, it is under CC-Enjoyable
Anastasia is a lesbian activities in Russia, where homosexuality is baned, she has no money so she takes on the job as an interpreter. However she hates the idea of being away from other lesbians to go to a remote part of Russia, but when you need money you go where the money is.
When the two women meet there is an instant attraction both know nothing can happen with this attraction since both women would lose their jobs and Anastasia could be sent to prison.
Laramie quickly realizes that there’s a lot of work to be done to get a group of men trained to be cow ranchers. The men are somewhat hesitant to take orders from a woman but when they realize that she knows what she’s doing they are quick to fall on step with her. The ranch begins to take shape an the attraction between the two women develops.
This story has so many twists and turns, mysteries, and mostly fun especially once all the people living on the ranch get to know one another, but always with the language barrier. Yolanda Wallace writes a very interesting story with unexpected happenings. I highly recommend this book.
For rancher Laramie family always comes first so when her brother is injured she decide to take the job offer from a wealthy man name Sergei who a fan of John Wayne in Godoroye, Russia to help pay his medical bills. I like that even though she doing this for family but she also wanted a adventure and that her friend Shorty came along to watch out for her well her mother persuade him to go with her daughter.
Anastasia is out and proud lesbian but it causes her few jobs because in Russia being lgbtq is a crime so when her friend Misha tells her about a job that his Uncle Sergei needs a a full-time translator as a go between she at first think about it but then decide to take the job.
This was ok read but it sad that by laws in Russia can't be yourself. The romance was ok even through it started later in the story and we didn't really see Laramie and Anastasia get to know each other well it focus more on the farming which I like learning about but I wish we learn more about Laramie and Anastasia past more.
