I think the MacKenzie series is one of the very best! You are with them each step of the story - amazing!
The other 3 MacKenzie Books - the Madness of Ian MacKenzie is the best of all!
The book is so moving and so well read! Angela Dawe is awesome!
Read them - The best Keeper to come along in a long time - what a fab discovery!
I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
I gave this book 4 stars because it was good but not as great as the first in the series. It was fun listening to it but not as sit on the edge of your chair, can't put the book down good as I felt with the fist book. The narrator did a good job also though I would have preferred another narrator for this series but well done overall. I look forward to reading other books by Jennifer Ashley.
I found the first book in this series very clever, with good love scenes and interesting story, but sadly the second book was tedious and I couldn't wait for it to end.
The reader got by in the first book because her robotic style of reading fit with an autistic style of speech, but sadly not in the second. I don't think I will continue with the series.
After reading the first book in this series I was eager to hear the next book and it didn't disappoint. Lady Isabella married Mac MacKenzie after knowing him one night. She was young and he was impetuous but now she is older and wiser and knows exactly what she wants and won't settle for less. Mac must go through a journey of discovering who he is and how to win his wife's affections back. This story is touching and human. It shows the flaws we all have deep within us. I love lady Isabella's tough but loving character, she holds her ground and demands that Mac realize how selfish he has been. Ashley's ability to flesh out these two characters and make them interesting is spot on. From beginning to end the listener is drawn in to this story. The complex characters and their relationship to each other and the storyline are enjoyable and I couldn't stop listening. The narrator is good but I wish she could read with more emotion, sometimes she comes off flat and cold. Other than that this is a great listen.
Many things: The narration was awesome, the story was engaging and exciting. I don't believe there is a woman that would not want to be loved the way Mac loved Isabella, and I am sure most men wish they had it going on like Mac. He is magnificent (after he got over his traumatic childhood issues).
The Love story. The strength that Isabella exhibited is the kind of strength women claim to have, but very few actually do.
She has the voices down extremely well. The sexy scottish accent, the British accent, the confident/sexy tone she gives Isabella and the no nonsense masculine twist of all the males, gave me goose bumps.
No. I wanted it to go on... So I tried but failed to strech it out.
The love scenes were HOT HOT HOT.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Listen for humor.
Mac, in this one, as he has all the best traits. Humor, macho, and devotion. When Mac sings with cymbals shows off the author's talent.
I love Ms Dawe talents. Note: if you want to be a devoted fan, then try the new 1.25x speed as it brings the action the author intended. I have over 100 of her reads and her male and children voices are good. All her Scots/Irish accent read stories are NOT to be missed.
Actually I read this series out of order. They are stand alone stories linked by the brothers. All the heroines are great and strong so which ever order you read, you will not be disappointed in the story. This story was last in my order, and it was a mistake to leave it to last. Many of the reviewers wanted the same action as in book #1, but the author chose to give you a different spin so she wouldn't have to compete with book #1. This book is less darker than all the rest, and it is not to be missed.
I thought the fist book was ok, but I liked the characters and their backgrounds, and this was a good second. Will most likely keep listening to the series. Good author and narrator!
While Ian & Beth may always be my favorites. Max & Isabella run a close second. Loved the story. The narrator did a great job of bringing it to life also
The mystery story line was pretty clever but the romantic story line was annoying, but still sexy. The couple wasn't as likable as the couple in the first book. I am moving on to the third book so I wasn't put off the series.
