Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed New York Times best-selling author of If I Can’t Have You and Darius Jones comes a new novel as sexy and riveting as the best of Zane and Eric Jerome Dickey.

Nursing wealthy businessman Chicago DuBois back to health was the least Loretta Lovelace figured she could do. After all, it was her bet that set off Loretta’s stalker - and put Madison’s husband at death’s door. And with Madison out of the country, Loretta couldn’t resist looking after Chicago’s interests and reigniting his passion for life - in and out of bed. But now Madison wants to take back what’s no longer hers, and that’s a mistake Loretta plans to make her regret.

With a baby on the way and a family empire to save, Madison knows it’s past time to make some tough decisions. But for this spoiled beauty, treacherous habits die hard, and the sexy billionaire who just can’t get enough of her is the weapon she needs to escape scandal and settle old scores. Too bad her newest play will put her in way over her head, and making things right will mean gambling with everything she wants most.

    "cI am anxiously awaiting part Three"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I THINK I WANTED SOME PARTS OF THIS BOOK TO BE MORE REALISTIC, HOWEVER, I FELT IT WAS STILL A GREAT BOOK.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the entire book.


    What didn’t you like about Cary Hite’s performance?

    My feelings is, he didn't handle the change of character very well.


    Do you think I’d Rather Be with You needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Absolutely, I can't wait. The book ended making you want more. There has to be another part, perhaps the final and most exciting one.

    Story
    "Subpar and overly-dramatic"

    I was very disappointed with the writing versus part 1 of the novel. I think that most of the character's personalities completely changed to the point where half of the characters seemed mentally unstable.

    In the first installment, at least Granville had a reason for being crazy and over-the-top! But in this one there was entirely too much manufactured drama!

    The reader's performance was still excellent and he did his best to save this book to no avail! I would give the reader a 5 for his performance, but there is only so much his performance can do to save such a travesty.

    Whereas I loved Granville in the first story and he pretty much stayed the same - the writer did not remain true to most of her characters and made some of my favorites appear to be very shallow and indecisive sociopaths!

    I was really looking forward to finding out what became of everyone from the first book, but this was a definite let down!

    I would not waste a credit on a third installment.

    "A Bit Of A Letdown"
    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Cary Hite?

    Yes


    Has I’d Rather Be with You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It wasnt a good sequel. The new voices who took over the characters from the first book wasn't believable, The storyline didn't flow well either. I was eagerly waiting for the followup, but this wasn't as good as I thought it would be.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Cary Hite’s performances?

    I'd give it a shot.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Without giving too much away, I didn't understand the sentencing part. Did Granville go to jail or not? Some parts of book seemed as if he was sentenced while others say he was aquitted.

    Then, all of a sudden, towards the end of the book it seems like he and Loretta are friends...When did that happen? I just got confused a few times thru this book :(


    Any additional comments?

    Authors, take your time if you decide to write part three...I'd would buy it but I'd hope it would be as good as part one.

    "Wow."

    The characters in this story is a hot mess. Lorretta needs her butt whooped! She is so confused and call herself a Christian. Granville is CRAZY he should be in mental hospital. Great read though, wonder what's happen now..

    I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    "SAVE YOUR CREDIT"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I don't like this book. I couldn't finish it. I have tried and tried to listen, but when I noticed it had 53 Chapters, I couldn't do it. It took everything in me to get to Chapter 15. I also didn't like that the sequel didn't have the same people narrating the book. This man doesn't do the female voices justice. The Madison voice was better than the first book, even though it was a man.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It hasn't at all.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    nope!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    It was just bad. He didn't have enough of a difference between the characters to notice the difference between them.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I have read people give bad reviews and say, "I just couldn't finish it". I didn't think I would ever listen to a book and not want to finish. However, this book was the one. I couldn't finish it. I couldn't imagine after the first book, why it would take 46 or 47 chapters in the first book and over 50 chapters in this book. Save you credit for something else!

    "My excitement was killed, worse sequel"
    What disappointed you about I’d Rather Be with You?

    I did not like how my favorite character, Loretta turned out. She was a totally different character from the first book. She was the better woman and she turned out to be a lesbian and a low life. I thought that was too dramatic of a change.


    What could Mary B. Morrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    CONSISTENCY!!!!!


    What didn’t you like about Cary Hite’s performance?

    Cary is a wonderful narrator but I liked having two narrator's, a male and a woman. Having Cary be like a woman was awkward.


    What character would you cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    Chaz and Tisha


    Any additional comments?

    Mary I love you but please just rewrite the story, HATED IT!

    "This was not one of her better books!"
    What disappointed you about I’d Rather Be with You?

    1. The book was a rush job and the story lines was tacky. 2. The sad part is that Loretta gives Christians a really bad rap! 3. What kind of father would sell your property while you are sick and make his child kill her spouse for money and still lose his business to the man he wanted dead!
    4. Why is Chicago a wimp?


    What could Mary B. Morrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Waited a little longer before releasing this book and not trying to make it a sequel. The first book kept me on the edge of my seat. Mary Morrison is a great writer, but I felt this was not one of her better books


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was good that's one of the reasons I continue to listen


    What character would you cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    Madison Mother, who wouldn't tell their child about something that could affect her life!


    Any additional comments?

    If the gun was thrown in the pool at a hotel why did it take so long to find the gun and why wasn't the pool cleaned out after the shooting? anyway Ms Morrison I thank you for your story lines.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Cary Hite?

    Yes, I like Mary's stories for the most part. Cary Hite's voice has grown on me.


    What could Mary B. Morrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I envisioned a better ending to the cliff hanger from the 1st book. I couldn't wait to read the next one. Boy did I get disappointed. These characters seemed watered-down.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Loretta should have remained sane. She was as crazy as Granville in this book. Madison got off too easy. She should have really gotten what was coming to her. I liked the unfolding story line of Madison's "sorry" dad. GRANVILLE IS STILL MY FAVORITE. HE IS CRAZY AS HE##. He's so stupid he's hilarious. He kept me laughing out loud.


    Could you see I’d Rather Be with You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    Wife and mother of three, I've enjoyed reading since I was a child. I REALLY enjoy audible books because it allows me to multitask.

    "BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Cary Hite?

    I usually like most of Mary B Morrison's work & Cary Hite's but this was just sub par, point blank period, exclamation point. I'm sure I'm going to give her another try but shes gonna have to step up her game.


    Has I’d Rather Be with You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.....I love the genre, this just a bad read....


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He did the best with what he had to work with


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    I would cut all the all jail scenes, the hospital scenes of the baby being born, too many to name, I probably would have gone in a total different direction with this whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    HATED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Great sequel to "If I Can't Have You""
    What did you love best about I’d Rather Be with You?

    The twist of the new protagonist opposed to when we were first introduced to all the characters in the first book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Grandville character... I almost laughed ever time he said something!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing, he was great.


    If you could take any character from I’d Rather Be with You out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Chicago! Seems like a real gentle man that tries to do right by everyone.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the sequel!
