    Lady Emma Wells-Finch comes to Texas on a mission: she has two weeks to ruin her reputation. The only thing that will save her from losing everything is complete and utter disgrace. World famous playboy-athlete Kenny Traveler has been blackmailed into chauffeuring Lady Emma around. He needs to prove himself completely respectable to get back into his game. And when a gorgeous man who can't afford another scandal meets a hardheaded woman who's determined to cause one, anything can happen...even love.

    Overall

    I love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She's one of my favorite and I especially love the witty and fun characters she produces! I only wish I had read this book instead of listening to it. The low, southern accented voice of the hero just made me wince so much I had a hard time even liking him. And being read by a female voice, I think I'd rather she 'played it straight' and just read in a normal voice. My imagination could have taken over. Our heroine's British accent was nice enough, but it seemed that all I could do when listening was try to block out the voice and try to 'hear' the story. Does that make sense? Anyway - next time I'll look for the STAR reviews for the audible version, which can be quite different from the paper version. And unless the reader is REALLY good at voices (like the wonderful ones in THE HELP), I would suggest they just read, not try to act.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "As Good as Air Conditioning"
    Overall

    Reading "The Help" is rather laborious and makes you begin to sweat. It's so difficult to get into a natural ebb and flow with the conversations and the dialects. LISTENING to it is like sitting under that new air conditioner in Skeeter's home......ahhhh....it's cool and sublime! The best book audible book ever!
