Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
Loved the first book and the narrator. However, this book seemed to drag on and the narrator's anxiety ridden voice the entire book made for difficult listening. I don't know why she changed so much from the first????
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.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I am loving this series and adore the Mackenzie brothers, but this is not a strong book - check out the other reviewers for the full story. This story would have worked better, I think, if we'd been able to follow the story of Isabella and Mac from the beginning so we got a better feel for the terrible times they had. As it is, we join the story just as Isabella is starting to warm to Mac. I like the idea of Mac struggling to redeem himself. I also like the premise of Isabella coming to terms with her grief. Because we do not follow the story right from the beginning the build up to their eventual reconciliation lacks tension. The mad forger is a distraction and does not add to the development of the relationship between Mac and Isabella.
My verdict is this is a good story but not a great one. But I am really looking forward to hearing about Cam and Hart.
Angela Dawe was good with the narration of the story.
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.
Great storyline-she writes very well and love the details she displays with her words about emotions and their differences. Looking forward to the next book.
