This book. Wow. I think upon reflection, this has been my favorite book in the series so far... which is honestly surprising to me because at first, I wasn't sure about having an 18-year-old lead in a Romance novel. Initially I didn't know if I'd be as interested, etc... but man, Dallie and Cole's story had a way of creeping into my heart. She seamlessly takes this young adult--with real, authentic emotions--and addresses coming-of-age freedoms/changing roles, sexual desires/hormones, self-worth ...more

It was strange at first to read that Dallas is now all grown up but it was another fantastic story from this wonderful author with a few surprising twists thrown in the mix. This is my first cowboy romance and i loved this serise so much and look forward to more ❤

Romance with a touch of reality is no understatement when it comes to Shanna Swenson’s novels! Once again, she’s crafted an intense, multilayered love story - with the perfect problem to keep the plot moving.

Cole Callahan is a man on the run after finding his best friend murdered in their auto body shop. With his criminal record, Cole fears being viewed as the murderer, so he runs and finds himself at the Kinsen ranch in Abundance. It was fun to watch Cole slowly fit into ranch life - at times b

A Heartrending, Dramatic Return to Abundance, Texas

I love reading legacy series, and I have to say, Swenson’s Abundance series combines meaningful romance and engrossing storylines that span generations and keep me coming back to Abundance to read all about her great characters. Escape starts off with our hero, Cole, on the run from the law, caught in an impossible situation with nowhere to turn. His character tugged at my heartstrings. He’s never known the love and support of a strong family or

I took a trip to my favorite vacation spot Abundance TX in the third installment of the Abundance saga (however there is a free prequel available on Shanna's website that is the perfect start to the series) following the Kinson/Cameron clans and some friends we've met along the way. This book is a little different in the fact that it is written 14 years after the second book takes place and follows Dallie who we fell in love with as an adorable four-year-old with a special gift when it comes to ...more

What an amazing story! I don’t give spoilers away in my reviews. What I have to say is that the progression of this series is amazing. The character development is well done. The story kept my attention throughout the whole time. The story made me think of relatability in life. Shawna did an amazing job with bringing back the best part about this story....the dynamic characters and an amazing story!!!!! If you’ve read the other books in the series, you’ll need to get this one! You won’t regret i ...more

I received an ARC of this book, and Shanna strikes gold again! I love the Abundance series, and this continuation gave me what I needed.

Cole and Dallie were adorable, good kids at heart who sweetly fall for each other despite facing serious obstacles. I loved seeing the Kinsen/Butlers grow more - Savannah is so grown and delightful! Nat and Jack dealt with relatable issues every parent must face, and some were more intense than most people could handle. I loved seeing more of Nate and Jordan, m

I cannot tell you how excited I was to read book 3 of this amazing series!! Finally getting grown up Dallie’s story!

Shanna does it again. I just love how she writes and have not only the different POV from the 2 main characters but also the secondary characters as well! It is so cool how you can feel the scenes from everyone’s POV!

Dallas isn’t the little baby Dallie anymore. She is a grown 18 year young lady trying to figure out the world before she goes off to college. Which she is having a har

If you've read the first 2 books in this series, Escape from Abundance is a Must Read! If you haven't, stop! Grab a copy of Abundance and enter a town where friends are family and family are friends.
In Escape, Dallie, our lovable little blondie is all grown-up. She's everything you'd expect and more, except, she's into boys and not Black Beauty or My little Pony.
I wasn't sure how I'd handle the maturity but Shanna navigated Dallie's coming-of-age with the appropriate amount of angst and wonder

Dallie grew up loved and sheltered. Cole was raised as a rebellious foster child. Upon finding his best friend dead at work, Cole flees so he’s not blamed for the murder. He seeks shelter at a ranch in Abundance where he meets Dallie—his new boss’ daughter. This innocent young woman has got a lot to learn about life and love, and who better than Cole to teach her? Together they spark a story of puppy love and the satisfaction that comes from many firsts. Their love swoons you in such a way that ...more

If you loved the main characters in the first 2 Abundance books then you're going to love this addition to the family. While Escape from Abundance centers around Dallas and newcomer Cole, we get to see a lot of old favorites as well. Natalie, Jack, Nate & Jordan all play prominent roles in this book and it was wonderful to see them all again. This book starts off 14 years after book 1 begins, so now little Dallas is all grown up and ready to head off to college. This book has a good combination ...more

An enjoyable read with horses and horse whisperers! I really enjoyed the family atmosphere portrayed in this story and the variety of characters present. Accepting Cole into their midst was a surprising step considering how much Natalie and Dallas has been through in their lives but fortunately Cole was a 'good' guy. Jack Kinsen made it clear what he would and wouldn't accept. Lots happening in this story to keep one reading and a HEA to make one smile/ Thanks Shanna Swenson. ...more

Escape From Abundance

A full and detailed experience that will live with me forever more. The characters seems so real and complete in themselves. With the story of a lifetime unfolding with it. I loved it!!!!! The first romance novel, I have ever read that was more than just the hyperbolic sex scenes. A true original!

Great read blending all characters from Abundance

I loved Cole and Dallie and I loved being able to be a part of the precious characters from book 1 & 2 in this novel. It took you on a great trip through everyone’s life and I can’t wait to see what Shanna writes next.

Oh be still my poor, little heart. I have said it before and I will say it again and EVERY DAMN TIME I read a novel by @shannaswen_author ...this woman can weave words together to wholeheartedly suck you in and make you never want to leave!
The world she creates, the characters she gives us are ALL so damn loveable!!!! I absolutely fell in love all over again with Nat and Jack and again with Jordan and Nate! Catching up with the couples, seeing how their lives still unfold after years and years

The third installment to Swenson's Abundance series is great! I still love #2, Nate and Jordan's story, a little more, but this one was still a sweet read with some mystery and suspense all around. I loved Cole: his flaws, the burden of the past that he's running from, and his vulnerable side. And Dallie is a pistol!

I found some of the dialogue a little forced, some conversations that didn't seem very natural. I felt like Cole should have been a little more somber and secretive at times when he
