Red Dirt Heart 4 (Red Dirt, #4) by N.R. Walker

 Moving from a Texas ranch to an Australian Outback station was a life changing decision for Travis Craig. Though it wasn’t really a decision at all. Something in his bones told him to go, though he had no clue as to why.
Until he met Sutton Station’s owner, Charlie.
Loving Charlie shouldn’t have been easy. The man was stubborn, and riddled with crippling self-doubt. No, it shouldn’t have been easy at all. Yet somehow, falling in love with Charlie was the easiest thing in the world.
Loving him was easy. Living with him, teaching him how to love in return and, more importantly, how to love himself, was not.
But Travis knew all along it’d be worth it. He knew the man with the red dirt heart was destined to be his. Just like he knew the red dirt that surrounded him was where he was supposed to be.
In the final instalment of the Red Dirt Series, we see Charlie through Travis’ eyes. We see how much he’s grown and how much he loves. We go back to Texas with them, and we see Charlie get everything he truly thought he never deserved.
Red Dirt Heart 4 is Travis’ story.
And this is the story of not just one red dirt heart, but two.
Book four, opens up a year after the engagement, and once again Charlie and Travis are traveling. Sam Charlie ‘new’ brother is heading to the station to help out. And the engagement is out and wedding plans are being made.  Charlie and Travis fly home to Texas, and we meet Travis family.

This was a nice rounding out of the lives of the characters. We grew, developed, loved, fought, got married and had a child. It was well written and a unique story line, day and the life of a Station owner, told over a couple of year’s period.  But I still never found any deep connections I could latch onto. I never did feel a strong bond between Charlie and Travis. The end cuteness with the child, felt forced. I found I liked the interaction between Ma’ and Charlie the best. I’m glad I read them, but I’m also glad they are done.
