I enjoyed the continued storyline from the first book in the series. I liked how it picked up from where the other one left off, giving a new reader just enough of the background so you didn't necessarily have to read the first book.
Every women should experiences such great friendships. Jack and Emma's romance and hot, hot passion; every man and woman should give themselves this gift.
There are various parts of each of the quartet stories that I like but as a whole-an entire project if you will-Emma and Jack's story is my favorite. Which is kind of weird because Parker is my favorite character of the lot. Anyway, the whole quartet as a story idea is pretty neat and makes for nice fun reading. It's good if you just want to relax and laugh and have an all around good read without expecting it to be terribly deep. If you're looking for more deep or mystery related Nora Roberts these aren't the ones to read. If however, you want something enjoyable, different, and arguably with a bit of fluff then give the quartet a shot.
Also, I have listened to other books narrated by Angela Dawe. That lady is talented and has a knack for changing character voices without flaw. I find myself now looking for books narrated by Dawe. She's that good...in my opinion. Too bad she didn't narrate the entire quartet series but 3 out of 4 is still pretty good.
This is my first audible romance-- It took a little getting used to "hearing" and not reading, but I liked the fact that I could listen while I drive or do housework, so it made it an even better escape. I read the other reviews about a lisp and could honestly not hear one. The only thing that was a little weird was hearing the male character narrated by a woman. Even with her voice lowered, it was kind of odd, but I guess that's part of the audiobook package. Nice story, just downloaded another in the series.
I wanted my wife to check if she likes audiobooks and bought this book for her with absolutely no intention to read it. I suspected that it would be "cheesy" love story. At some point, I decided to be brave and try something new. I listened the whole book, believe it or not!!! It was not as boring as I predicted and in fact, I enjoyed narration a lot. I must admit that something in this book make you feel relaxed and happy. But true fans of Nora Roberts would probably tear me to pieces if they would see my nose wrinkle in sarcastic smile while listening this cheesy phoney story. Male's behaviour is so outrageously phoney that it make me suspect that the author intentionally created grotesque out of them. I am probably the only male in this universe who managed to listen Nora Robert's book till the end:). I believe if I would have two X chromosomes, I would probably give 5 stars to this story:).
