HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
Sure, but I'm not an editor/author so take this with a grain of salt. I was waiting, waiting, waiting for something to happen...there was no mystery, adventure, seduction. The publisher's summary calls it 'exciting' - I didn't hear it.
If you cut the intimate scenes it was a book about animals - a humane society, helicopter pilot and a cast of many characters. Perhaps the author was setting the table for future books in the series.
In this debut to an exciting new series, Lilah Young has lived in Sunshine, Idaho, all her life, while pilot-for-hire Brady Miller is just passing through. But he soon has Lilah abandoning her instincts and giving in to a primal desire. Contains mature themes.

Right now I'm listening to Mastered by Lorelei James. After that I'm going for a counter terrorism or some other sort of military thriller.
She was average, not bad not distinguished. The script required her to make animal sounds - not something that makes an adult book seriously.
NOTE: Mature themes
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
karen white makes all the men in this series so sexy

I had great hopes for a book about people who enjoy & help animals. However the characters, both animal and human, didn't have much personality to me. My mind kept wondering and I didn't care how it ended.
This may be your typical love story where the strong, damaged guy meets the sweet girl next door from some random small town, but you know what? I don't care. I loved it. The story was sweet and endearing and Brady might quite possibly be the sexiest man alive.He's the strong silent type.He's the kind of guy who can fix anything and make you feel safe and loved.This is the kind of story that makes you love a good love story.It might not have been the best love story ever written, but it was sweet and in the end you are left with a smile on your face. So is that really a bad thing?
Yes absolutely. Even though you knew what was coming and how it was all going to end, it was still well written enough that you wanted to stay with it until the very end.
Both forms of this book are great. I have both. I read at home and listen to books at work and on the drive to and from work
One of the very first scenes was one of my favorites. It was Lilah who ran into Brady's car and he thought she was trying to leave the scene with a load of animals she was transporting to her kennels, although there is a nice steamy scene later at the lake which was also excellent.
Jill Shalvis never disappoints. I truly enjoyed this book one of the series and I am already working on book two and book three.
This was a cute story, with likable characters and a nice romance. I loved the setting (an vet clinic and animal boarding facility) because the animals really added to the story. What I didn't like was hearing OVER AND OVER how hot the hero was. I got it the first time -- his arms/butt/chest were huge/hard/cut. Ugh. Over and over! I think it was something I would have skimmed over if I was just reading the book, but on audio it was hard to avoid. I still enjoyed the story enough to recommend it though!

The wasn't one part of this story that stood out as particularly interesting. It was a good well-rounded romance with all its parts being equal and necessary to the story.
This was my first Karen White narration but it won't be the last. She did a wonderful job with all the voices; they were clearly differentiated and understood in multiple conversations. She even made the animal sounds!
After listening to this title, I'm even more eager for the third story to be released in audio. Karen White returns and I'm confident it will be as professional and entertaining production as this one.

I downloaded this book with a bunch of other romances that cost $7.95 or less in preparation for a 700+ mile solo road trip, overnight after having worked a full day (family emergency). I tried 3 or 4 of the others before settling on this book for the bulk my trip. Why? The author starts developing the sexual tension between the hero and heroine in the very first scene (what can I say? There is nothing like a steamy romance to keep yourself awake!). Since it engaged me and was a fun listen, yes, I'd recommend this book to my friends who enjoy reading romances.
Every scene involving Brady and Twinkles.
There are many reasons why a narrator can pull a listener out of a story, but only one of them is good: a performance that's so exceptional, I can't help thinking about it (i.e. "Wow! This is a really good narrator" or "Wow! I really like how the narrator does that accent.")
Ms. White's performance didn't pull me out of the story because her narration was exceptional, but it did enable me to totally lose myself in the story, which, after all, is one of my main reasons for reading -- to escape from reality for just a little while. I'm sure her other performances would follow suit, so I'd have no misgivings about purchasing other books narrated by Ms. White.

Hey sometimes you feel like junk food!! This is one of those books, but it is also a very enjoyable listen. I'm certainly getting the next book in the series just to see what happens. Karen White did a fine job narrating so I have no trouble listening to her and the characters are very likable. I'd certainly love to work in the vet hospital in the story. Sounds like a lot of fun!
