I purchased this book as part of the series and it works in that context, but just. This is the story of Tiffany and Blaine and it works because of their connection with other characters in the series. Otherwise it runs from one erotic session to another as they work their way through a variety of sex toys available from Tiffany's shop with little romance or story line. I don't regret spending the credit since I am enjoying the series but for me this listen was not on par with books 1 to 6. Character development is weak, the plot is predictable, there is more erotica than romance and the narration is still terrible. On the upside there are updates on Mack and Maddie, Joe and Jennie and Seamus and an introduction to characters and stories that are to follow.
I enjoyed this book and the story of Samantha as she bravely sets out to establish a new life for herself and her son in Montana. Wyatt is an equally strong character and as the story develops so too does the relationship between them bringing equal parts of emotion, humour and adventure.
A welcome addition to the series, albeit somewhat out of sequence and a little short to be considered 'Book 5". It was more like a novella that focused on developing a character from a previous book. Unfortunately the 'previous book' was Book 6. This had me perplexed since I had already listened to the first 4 books but things fit into place much better after I downloaded and listened to Book 6.
While there was nothing objectionable about this listen there wasn't anything engaging. I purchased it on sale based on the publisher's review and pretty much got what I paid for. The story line was so predictable I was sure I'd heard it before, but that turned out to be a different listen with a more engaging plot and much better narration. I did manage to listen to the end but not without a fair bit of 'fast forwarding'.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It has great character and story depth and a good balance of emotional engagement and sensuality. There are tears and joy as Hannah struggles to come to terms with the loss of her young husband in Iraq and move forward to find love again while still embracing his memory. As always, Christina Taister does a great job with narration.
I have enjoyed the books in this series and eagerly downloaded this listen. Even though I was aware that, with a '10.5' series designation, it wouldn't be a full book I was somewhat surprised by its brevity and linear focus. If you're a fan of this series and familiar with Jarred and his situation it's probably worth downloading, otherwise it's best to start somewhere else. One complaint I've had throughout the series is Holly Fielding's narration and unfortunately it's the same is still the case with this listen.
I enjoyed this book every bit as much as the first two in the series. Admittedly it follows the same format and has a degree of predictability but it is a historical romance and part of a series so that was expected. The story and characters were fresh and engaging and it provided a welcome continuation of the Yellowstone saga. Nick Sarando did a credible job with the narration although he's not my favourite narrator.
I enjoyed this book but not as much as others in the series. It just didn't have the same level of engagement, suspense or plot development that the first three did. Perhaps it is just me, since I'm now half way through the next book in the series and am finding it even bit as entertaining as the first three. Nick Sarando does an okay job of narrating but I prefer Alexandra Haag who narrated the first book.
A very enjoyable listen with a great story and strong characters, I think this book is one of Debbie Macomber's best and Emily Beresford did a great job with the narration. Definitely worth the credit.
I truly enjoyed this listen. I'm a fan of Robyn Carr and this book has everything I've come to expect from her books: great story and plot development, strong characters and an engaging balance of action, romance and sensuality. Susan Duerden was an excellent choice as narrator with good inflection and diction, albeit somewhat slow delivery in places.
I enjoyed this listen despite the fact I found Ceejay too insecure and needy to be enjoyable as the female lead. Fortunately Noah was everything Ceejay wasn't which helped move the story along. Kate Rudd did a good job with the narration which added significantly to the listening experience.
