Hot, identical twins pining for the same female?
You caught my attention.
Witty banter, likable/interesting characters, tension, and then release?
I'm still listening.
Twist at the end with a mild cliffhanger?
Alright, I'll buy the next book.
I was entertained the entire read. It is an easy CR with some funny dialogues and palpable chemistry between the characters. Bad boys? I guess that would be subjective, but the real reason we love dominant male characters in romance novels is that we truly want to tame them - well to a certain extent.
Narrators: Kate Rudd, Benjamin L. Darcie
There are two narrators for this audiobook as the POV changes from Olivia to Cash and to Nash. Both narrators do a great job with tone, pitch, and pace. The also are great with character distinction and consistency which makes for an enjoyable listen.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
The cliffhanger is a good news bad news type of thing. I only gave this book 4 stars because while I liked the characters, there wasn't much 'story' there. However, I can already tell that will change with the next book since this one ended with a cliffhanger, Which is the bad news. You have to listen to the next to find out what happens.
Loved the characters!
The big twist!
Yes, I listened every chance I could get!
This book had some twists that I didn't expect, which I love in a book! I couldn't wait to find out what came next. It caught me right from the start, I didn't have to spend hours trying to "get into" the book!
i love the story between cash, nash and olivia. This story is one on a kind that should be read by romance book lovers. GREAT BOOK!
Audiobooks help me de-stress, especially after a long 12-hour shift! I love AUDIBLE!
I couldn't stop listening! There were twists and turns and moments that leave you hanging...and I couldn't just stop...I had to know how it was going to play out!
I love Cash! I wish I had a Cash of my own!!!
This book is entertaining. If you are looking for a steamy, sexy story than this should work just fine for you. I didn't really like the male narrator - but I love Kate Rudd. She is the reason I bought the book. The story is predictable, and cheesy at times, but entertaining.
Down to You 2.5....not quite a 3 star read
While the book irritated me a bit in the beginning, I think it was mostly the narration, individually both narrators were good and I am of the opinion if you are going to have two narrators let the girl narrate all the girls and the boy narrate all the boys....not back and forth on the POV's because then each character has two different voices....other than that "pet peeve" of mine the narration of the story was good.The story itself....I ended up figuring out the "twist" about a chapter or two before Olivia...so as far as a book being written well enough that you don't figure it out right away that was well done. Olivia as a character while I did not hate her...I did not like her a whole lot either. Cash & Nash...while appealing and certainly sexy...that was about all they had going for them for most of the book.I was entertained by the story, I don't feel the need to move on to book two as I am not that invested in the characters, but am happy with the HFN ending....
Wow, what an excellent story, I thought the story moved at a nice pace. And the twist and turns were amazing! The only thing I'd would have like different would be them to stick to the male voices and female voices instead of every other chapter. This was my first M. Leighton book And I looking forward to the next book!! A well used credit!
Yes, but only as a purchase. I would not waste a credit on this book, however it was worth the purchase. The characters were not easy to relate to. It was not a very deep story but kept my attention. There is a twist in the story which made it interesting and some witty dialogue that kept me laughing and entertained. The sex was too few and far between but was overall a good book.
Down to You is a shorter novel and a totally unconventional contemporary romance.
Olivia is a curvy brunette with green eyes with a slightly low self esteem. She’s a bartender in college and living with her prissy rich cousin. Olivia thinks TOO much. She made me roll my eyes in annoyance many times. She seriously thinks like crazy in between dialogues, it’s not an inner goddess but it’s just about as annoying.
She ends up having a seriously embarrassing moment and meets Cash. The following morning, another embarrassing moment and meets Nash. Cash and Nash are identical twins. The brothers are BOTH attracted to Olivia and her in return to both of them. Cash is a bar owner bad boy while his brother Nash the clean cut intern, soon to be lawyer. Problem is, Nash is dating her cousin.
I hate the fact that Olivia keeps referring to Cash as a bad boy. She barely knows Cash and passes some SERIOUS judgments on him. Cash is a very successful business owner, can he be all THAT bad? Yes he has a motorcycle but…come on! Nash is the type that Olivia believes that she SHOULD be with. Never mind the fact that what Nash is doing with Olivia what I would assume a “Bad Boy” to be, cheating.
I don’t like the fact that she’s messing with two men, brothers NO LESS. The fact that there are times when she doesn’t know who is who is just ANNOYING!! I don’t like that she is betraying her cousin, granted she barely likes her, but still.
#TeamCash here if you couldn’t tell. Cash is smart, charming, sarcastic, funny and sweet! Just like I love them. :-)
ANDDDDDD then the bombshell and plot twist! I didn’t see that one coming AT ALL!! Which made the ending and novel just a wee bit better.
Down to You would have been more enjoyable to me if Olivia wasn’t so annoying, retarded and whiny through most of the book. The jury is still out on if I would read the next book or not.
(This book has 3 different point of views and they alternate with the chapters. It’s Olivia every other chapter and it switches between Cash and Nash. Cash and Nash’s chapters are usually much smaller than Olivia’s though.)
Narrator Note: There are 2 narrators for this one and they are both new to me. Kate Rudd’s voice IMO sounds more young to me. I imagine she would be great for YA audiobooks. Her male voices were pretty good though.
Benjamin L. Darcie would NOT be my first choice that’s for sure. He has a deep serious voice. I believe he would be great for a Discovery Channel or A&E TV show narrator. I just can’t picture him as a sexy bad boy! His female voices aren’t the greatest either.
