I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I must say I judged this book by the cover. I actually thought that this was a dark erotica story. Well no, it's one of the best and sweetest love stories I've listened to. And what an amazing hero Braden is! It's going to be difficult to find another book with such a perfect man. He was totally smitten and I loved him for that. This story made me smile, laugh, cry and basically made me feel every emotion possible. And not only do you get an amazing main love story, you get a secondary one as well that was equally good and intense.
Narration: This is my first listen by Paula Costello and apparently it's her first narration. Well I could have never guessed that. She's good! Considering she was able to portray american, british and scotish accents so well and at the same time make the story come to life so vividly.. I'd say she's very very good.
I really liked this story and would definitely listen to another book by this author and/or narrator.
As soon as I read the blurb stating that the hero was blind I knew I had to get this book. It was different to any other contemporary romance book I've ever read or listened to. It's a sweet romantic story that was so well written. Both the hero and the heroine had gone through trauma and sadness and it includes enough details to make it bearable.
I loved loved loved this book so much!!! I spent seven hours of my day listening to the story from beginning to end. I just could not put it down. The way the romance slowly develops is amazing. The best first kiss scene by far. EVER! I just loved Cole! I don't want to give spoilers because every little surprise this story has is worth discovering on your own. I'm just amazed that this is the first and only book by Darcy Daniel. I sure hope she writes many many more.
Narration: Eva Kaminsky did a wonderful job with this story. It was set in Australia and I could tell that the accent was different. Each character had a different voice and she added the extra sweetness and intensity that a story about a first powerful love deserves. It's definitely worth a credit or even full price!!

I'm In No Mood For Love (Writer Friends 2)- not audiobook
Tangled Up In You (Writer Friends 3) Audiobook available
Not Another Bad Date (Writer Friends 4) Audiobook available
This book can be read as a stand alone but it's better to read in order so that you can enjoy catching up on the lives of the previous couples. This is just another great book by Rachel Gibson. Romantic, hot, funny! I just love a lost love story! Adele and Zach dated in college but Zach's ex-girlfriend tells him she's pregnant so he marries her and Adele is heartbroken. Fast forward 14 years and Zach's wife dies (there's a secondary story about the ghost of the ex-wife being on limbo, which happens to be Walmart and that's kind of weird). Adele and Zach find each other again and then the magic begins.
Narration: Nicole Poole did a very good job with this book. Great male voices and you could always tell the different characters apart. There was a bit of background noise but it didn't take away from the story. I enjoyed every minute of this listen :)
