Love or Legacy - Only One Can Be Chosen.
Hey there Reading Ninja's, I'm so excited to bring you the second half of Mel Rowe's The Station duo...
THE STATION - OASIS IN THE OUTBACK (vol 2)
Let's start with the covers... I mean look at them - they're GORGEOUS! I've already hit my girl Mel up for physical copies of each; they're just too pretty not to have on my shelves, and likely I'll display them front-on because they are meant to be seen that way - half a hottie on each book, gotta get him together.
But it's what is within the covers that is even more special. The second half of Jake and Sienna's story is even better than the first. We find the secret to who Sienna 'really' is. We learn about Jake's personal life and why he tries so hard to keep Sienna at arm's length despite their attraction, while fighting the seemingly never-ending and non-winnable battle to keep the station and make it prosper... We see even more renovation design choices and Zombie hunting bright ideas that seem so totally unworkable and out of left field while simultaneously totally being something I'd not only want to take part in but would likely be an instigator.
If you want to know what the Ginger Reading Ninja is like in her life outside of the pages of a book - take a good look at Sienna; she's me (I like to think so but likely Mel has a differing opinion).
The first thing I said to Mel when I finished reading book 2 was -WHY??!!!! Why does it have to be a duo? Why is that the end? Why can't I have more? I love all these characters and their stories so much, and while I know we see some of them make cameos in her Dust series, I want more of them. On their station. Doing what they do.... OY MEL - MORE OK. I KNOW YOU HEAR ME. NO DON'T YOU TURN YOUR BACK AND SAY THAT THIS IS HOW THE STORY WENT! I WANT MORE I TELL YA! MORE!!!!
Anyway, rant over... Do yourself a favour. Lock the family out of the house for a few days, or better still, head into the outback (or beach, or bush, or whatever is in your area) yourself, roll out a swag and hunker down to read both books together. You'll be transported into my world, Mel's world - the Australian Outback, and you'll never regret spending time at Danbunnan Station.
Love or legacy—only one can be chosen. “It was going to kill him to say goodbye to one to keep the other when his family’s legacy already dictated which one he had to choose and which one to let go ..."
Jake is set to take the reins as the next cattle king on the largest cattle station in the Northern Territory. With the vultures circling for their piece of his family’s land, and with time running out on Sienna’s work contract, Jake takes on a risky venture.
But when a ghost from the past reveals a deep dark secret, it tears Jake’s family apart. And the only woman who can help them is leaving.
Will this dusty Cinderella keep her prince? Or will Jake let the love of his life go, breaking both their hearts, in the epic conclusion to this heart-warming outback romance.
For a better reading experience, it is recommended you read The Station, Volume One.
