I saw that all three stories were now available as a set, and finally have listened to books 2 and 3 in this trilogy.
Overall, it's very entertaining but again - in a superficial way. There are some fun characters - just don't look for too much depth in anyone's backgrounds. As a reviewer commented, the dialogue does remind me of a Hallmark Movie, albeit with a bdsm slant (and if Hallmark ever wanted to make a more erotic romance movie, these stories would make great screenplays :-))
But the sex scenes are definitely HOT though and it's my main 'why' for getting these audiobooks.
I love the tongue in cheek way the author has with describing the characters' thoughts, especially Billy when he meets Angel again in her late father's old bar/poolhall. Having a big brawny football guy be more concerned with the wiles of his old flame than the burly bartender/family friend was quite amusing.
Angel - I loved her toughness and her love for her daughter. Being a single mom raising her child alone for 5 years plus dealing with an alcoholic father was so hard for her, but she never forgot Billy and still was in love with him, despite all the misunderstandings.
Her acting ability in bringing the individual characters to life. She continues to improve with her narration style which is a big plus because I love the writing of Liz Matis so much, I'd hate to not buy these audiobooks if the narrating was not enjoyable to listen to.
Yes, but more anger that these two missed out on being a family together for the first 5 years of their child's life, but if I say why, that will spoil the surprise twist in the story.
Hope the author continues the series - very fun shorts with great characters mixed with the right amount of conflict and hot sex :-)
Really enjoy the author's football story lines. I hope the author continues putting her stories into audio form. The narration was enjoyable to listen to :-)
I don't get why the writer wants to put so much history on her characters into as few words as possible, leaving one entertained by the overall story, but lacking feeling for the characters. This story could easily have been longer and been even better. A decent narrator gets the hard task of taking mile-a-minute events and getting you to follow the action without falling off the tracks.
But have to say, when it came to the sex scenes, that's where the narration shined most - and that's mainly why I buy these books :-) 3.5 stars for having fun secondary characters, great sense of humor and hot sex scenes.
