 Gold by Imagine Dragons  --Well gold is at the root of all evil…isn't it???  It's also the root of this story.

♫First comes the blessing of all that you've dreamed

But then comes the curses of diamonds and rings

Only at first did it have its appeal

But now you can't tell the false from the real

Who can you trust?♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I needed something different and this fit; since I really don't read a lot of westerns.  The audio was well done by Amy Rubinate complete with a western twang. 

I would of liked a little more character development, especially with Jesse, he came off as a douche most of the time, and I didn't really like him at first, he was only marginally better by the end.  He is definitely a man of few words.  Kate is a gutsy, take-no-crap kind of girl and I liked her.   There's a twist near the end, I didn't see coming at all.  Overall, I wish the ending…let's just say…went a little differently than it did.

 

 ⇝Sex Factor⇜  The romance is very subtle, and completely clean.
