    Story

    I really enjoyed this story. It was a super Hot book with a lot more than just sex but had a lot of that too! In the beginning I thought it was going to be an insta-love story but it really wasn't as they both knew so much about each other before either of them actually met and they had some very important life changing things that connected them. Doctor Vincent was a damaged character and that helps to make the story believable. I love the friendships in this book, Doctor Vincent has true friends that would do anything for him and that just makes him even more likable for me. There was no long drawn out drama because of a misunderstanding, another HUGE plus for me. It had an "I never saw that coming" story line which is always great. The ending left things ready for book 2 but it wasn't a cliffhanger. Oh and did I say THIS BOOK IS HOT!!!

    The narration was also awesome! At first I didn't know if I liked this back and forth style of dual narration but once I got into the book I really did like it. No annoying men trying to sound like women or visa versa. These narrators have a great chemistry that comes through incredibly well in this recording. Oh and they both do the sexy scenes amazingly well!

    Can't wait for the next book in this series to come out. Even if the eBook releases 1st I will be waiting for the Audiobook just to hear these two narrators together again! If you love a good romance, super HOT sexy scenes and an unexpected twist then I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS BOOK!!!

    Oh I missed Charles and Anna! I really hope this series continues on and on! I think I love how different these two are from each other and how well that works for them. Their relationship along with all the suspense and mystery make this series a favorite of mine. I missed Bran in this one but the way this ended made my heart happy that we will be getting more from him in the next one.

    The narration is perfect as always! Holter Graham is one of those narrators with a very distinct voice and I don't think he is the voice for every book but he is a PERFECT choice for this series. He is Bran & Charles to me no matter what i'm listening too.

    We were childhood friends, me and the boy who would grow up to become Hollywood's hottest star. When I was six, I fell for him at the bus stop. When I was 15, he moved away, taking my heart with him. When I was 24, he came back for me, even though I didn't want him. The nine years we spent apart, I tried like hell to fill the void. Apparently, so did he. Instead of being addicted to me, he became addicted to women, drugs, and money.

    I am loving this series! Book 1 was my first by this author and I knew that I had to listen to book 2 as soon as it came out. I absolutely love a friends to lovers story and this one was years in the making which made it even better for me. Mallory & Chad really were a perfect complement to each other. The famous & rich actor with the normal school teacher, I knew then that this would be exactly what I wanted in this book. I really enjoy this authors writing and her characters are all great. I can't wait to see who's book is next!

    The narration was perfect!! Jason Clarke is always great, especially when he is narrating a good guy! Erin Mallon is a narrator Goddess in my book! She can narrate anything and I'd listen. Putting these two together in one audiobook is explosive!!!

    I miss the Sea Breeze & Rosemary Beach kids so this was a fun book to jar my memory. This was a pretty sad and dark book, especially for Abbi Glines but I enjoyed that. It didn't feel like her normal story's but that wasn't a bad thing. I'm not usually a fan of the "innocent" adult female and the bad boy type story lines but this one worked for me because of past circumstances. I loved seeing some of the original Rosemary Beach & Sea Breeze characters as great parents to their adult children. It kinds brings their stories full circle for me.

    The narration was good.

    I couldn't have scripted a more perfect night. For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I'm not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine - multimillionaire. But who's counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met. And that's why I'm eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge...bank account. Everything's coming up aces. Until the next day, when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash - a lot complicated.)

    Story

    I love a "Cinderella" type of story. This book didn't have all the Cinderella plots but it did have a masked ball and true love between two people who didn't even know who each other were in the beginning so it reminded me of my favorite parts of Cinderella! I love how down to earth these characters are, does't matter that he is rich or that she is not, neither of them act the part, they are just who they are. I also love how this book has NO drama... I mean NONE!!!! In the scene that most authors would have added the misunderstanding that causes drama Lauren leads these characters in the mature direction where they TRUST each other!!! That alone made this book great for me! I also really liked the story and relationship between Sabrina and her brother. It was sweet and I really liked that she went to him for advice instead of treating him like a kid because he was younger than her.
    Lauren always adds so many fun "tidbits" to her story's and I always find myself waiting for one and this book did not disappoint (Pineapple Math)! I love the quirkiness of her characters, no matter how normal they are, they always have a quirky side. In the end I'd say another great book by Lauren Blakely!

    The narration was great as always with Sebastian York and Andi Arndt but this one had a little something extra! The last epilogue was duet narrated! These two are great separate and together but listening to them do a duet was fun and now I want a full duet audiobook with them narrating.


    Most Irresistible Guy: This novella was added at the end of the Come As You Are Audiobook. It was a prequel for Most Valuable Playboy. Just a little quick background on Violet & Cooper. It was sweet and made me want to listened to Most Valuable Playboy over again!

But when she runs into Elliot Petropoulos - the first and only love of her life - the careful bubble she’s constructed begins to dissolve.

    Story

    While I really enjoyed most of this book, I have to say this could have been a 5 star book except I felt like there were a few different things with these characters that were either passed by like it was inconsequential or that were just so out of character for them both. I love a friends to loves story and I love a second chance romance so this book started out perfect for me. I really enjoyed the past/present story line and I enjoyed how different Elliot and Macy were from the time they met and how it just worked for them both. Elliot was very quirky as a teen and Macy embraced his "strange" which was probably my favorite thing about this book. I was on board until almost the end. Up until then I felt like the only thing really missing was a little more connection between them as adults, 10 years is a long time to not need any time to get back where you were. Then finally we get the explanation as to why it had been 10 years and that really didn't work for me. It was a little unbelievable the explanation about New Years Eve and then Macy having to tell him about the following day was a little unbelievable too. I say this because after all the years and the connections, for him to go on clueless just didn't seem like him at all. With that being said, I think those are just issues for me and I think most people won't have the same issues. I would for definitely recommend this book but I would be sure that you didn't grab this looking for a "beautiful bastard" type of story. These authors have changed (not a bad thing, just different) since the beginning, their stories are a lot deeper now so expect that when you read this book.

    TEN STAR NARRATION
    The narration for the audiobook was AMAZING!!! Erin Mallon is an incredible narrator and I have to say I was kind of excited to see she actually narrated this one alone. I say this not because I don't love dual narration because I do but because Erin doesn't need a co-narrator. She has an awesome male voice and she switches so seamlessly between the roles that you forget it's only one person. She was a GREAT casting choice for this book. She was able to narrate a teenage boy, teenage girl, 29 year old man & 29 year old women and it worked perfectly. At no point did she sound too young or too old for the characters and to me that is a great skills that most narrators do not have. I think she portrays the emotions of the characters so well that she has you convinced the situations are actually happening to her and she isn't reading someone else's words.

    The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia. At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I'd always envisioned. I'd found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

    I really enjoyed this audiobook! I always like when a story takes place over years, It really helps me to immerse myself into the world the author has created. I'm not normally a fan of love triangles but this one was different for me, not so much a triangle but I can't explain that without spoilers. In the end, this story left my heart happy!

    Ava Erickson was great in this audiobook but I felt that there should have been accents. I forgot that Stella was Latina until it was mentioned because of the lack of accents.

    The only thing hotter than the weather south of the Mason Dixon line are the boys. Worn, faded blue jeans, slow Southern drawls, and those naughty moments in the back of pickup trucks a girl never forgets. Welcome to the world of the Sutton boys. Five brothers who fight, party, and drink a little too much, but, more importantly, they love their momma. Nothing can tear them apart...until the girl next door wins more than one of their hearts.

    ***Audiobook Review***

    I loved this story even though I will admit I did roll my eyes a few times but it's New Adult so that is pretty normal for me. I loved the family dynamic with the Sutton's. The brothers are all different but raised with the same values. Their mother was one of my favorite characters, a widow raising 5 boys and man she had complete control, It was awesome! I also really liked how even though Dixie & Asher were the main characters, we still had the side story of her BFF and the twins. That left me wanting book two.

    The narration was good but this is another one that I really thought needed more southern accents. I loved that each characters had their own voice. That really made it easy to follow.

    I am so sad it's over but I love that we got the entire story and a glimpse into the future too. This entire series is full of excitement, love & mystery! Even though this was a re-read it was just as great as it was the first time! This author does a fabulous job with these characters and making the readers love them all and giving them all qualities that make them unique but they also all have not so perfect sides which really helps you want the story to end exactly the way it did for everyone! I highly recommend this series!

    The narration was perfect! I am a huge Therese Plummer fan but I will admit I was a little worried she may be to mature for this series but I was wrong, she was awesome as always!

    Great book! This is a re-listen for me and I'm so glad I'm re-listening because I only remembered the main points which makes this feel like a first time! I love the direction this story is going and all the side characters who are becoming very important to the story. Book 2 really had a lot of story & world developments and that made this book very exciting for me. Besides some of the adults, there is not a character I don't like in this book. Wendy has really come a long way since the beginning of book 1 and she is going to be a kick butt queen!! I'm sad that I'm going into the last book because I don't want it to be over!

    The narration is awesome, Therese Plummer is a narrator god in my opinion ;)

    Story

    I listened to this book over 6 years ago and have been saying I was going to listen again because I remembered really liking it. My feelings have not changed! I love how original this world is and even if it has the same feel as a movie I've seen, the paranormal aspect makes it a completely different story.

    The characters are all great. You may love one and then hate the same one within the span of one book but that is what makes it great to me. You don't know who to trust, who is good and who is bad, besides Wendy of course! She has been thrown into a world she didn't even know existed but her life finally make sense once she knows about the Trylle. I am not a fan of magic in book but these are more abilities even if they call it magic so it works perfectly for me. Can't wait to start book 2.

    The narration is awesome! Therese Plummer is my #1 favorite narrator and I remember wondering if she could pull off YA and I have to say YES she can and she does it perfectly. Great narration choice!
