Signed and Sealed | [B. A. Stretke]

Signed and Sealed

William Drake’s living an ordinary life - he has a job, a dog, and a house near Lake Superior - when a frantic call for help from his ne'er-do-well sister, Katrina, throws a big rancher-shaped kink in the works. Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, Will’s arrival at the Montana ranch belonging to Katrina's fiancé, Martin, is marked by a flat tire and unexpected help from a tall, dark, and handsome Good Samaritan. The stranger turns out to be Elijah Hunter, Martin's brother - the most unsettling man Will has ever met.

Publisher's Summary

William Drake’s living an ordinary life - he has a job, a dog, and a house near Lake Superior - when a frantic call for help from his ne'er-do-well sister, Katrina, throws a big rancher-shaped kink in the works. Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, Will’s arrival at the Montana ranch belonging to Katrina's fiancé, Martin, is marked by a flat tire and unexpected help from a tall, dark, and handsome Good Samaritan. The stranger turns out to be Elijah Hunter, Martin's brother - the most unsettling man Will has ever met. Eli’s fury over Katrina’s misdeeds boils over onto Will, and he demands that Will remain on the ranch until the matter is resolved.

While Will can take Katrina's place, Eli doesn’t make it easy. He tests Will at every turn, but Will’s uncompromising morals exceed even Eli’s exacting standards. The attraction growing between them is further complicated by Eli’s ultimatum: he's still holding Katrina to the pre-nup she signed ... unless Will agrees to marry Eli instead.

    "A good listen"
    Where does Signed and Sealed rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This book will go into my easy listening rotation. It is a good listen that is easy to follow and draws the listener in.


    If you???ve listened to books by B. A. Stretke before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first book by this author I have listened to, but I look forward to more.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the narrator was great. The voices were easy to differentiate and the words were easy to understand.

    Story
    "Suspend realism and you'll enjoy this book"
    Would you try another book from B. A. Stretke and/or Jeff Gelder?

    Maybe


    Would you be willing to try another book from B. A. Stretke? Why or why not?

    Maybe, this was an OK read, you just had to suspend any expectation of a realistic story line. Also there were some pretty big plot holes. But it wasn't "painful" to listen to like some other books.


    Did Jeff Gelder do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He did OK, he is getting better. His narration is still a little "wooden" But again, it wasn't a bad listen.


    Could you see Signed and Sealed being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Absolutely not!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a Harlequinn Romance novel. The MCs could be a pirate and a damsel he "kidnapped" b/c her father owed him a debt. It is actually pretty funny (unintentionally). That said, it is still a nice romance. But be warned, I though Eli was an a**hole and my opinion didn't change even with the HEA.

    "Pie in the sky story ruined by a Narrator"

    The story, while far fetched was still engaging. I was ok with suspending disbelief about the contrived situation that brought the characters together, but the terrible narration, where several times it goes monotone for a noticeable length of time and a complete lack of any kind of character definition in tone or cadence, had me considering skipping chapters to get to the end.

    This story was never going to be a more than a light fantastical escape, unfortunately it wasn't an escape but an imprisonment at the hands of bad narration.

    Story
    "Don't bother"

    The story coulda/shoulda been good. The narration of this book was SO bad, I couldn't make it all the way through, I had to turn it off about 1/2 way. It was extremely difficult to tell which character was speaking at times. At other times, the stilted halting delivery was frustrating at best. There appears to be an issue with tense, in particular the word "ask". He ask, she ask....no, they did not... he ASKED, she ASKED. It started out as a minor annoyance, but by halfway through it was every instance and ended up being all I heard.
    Apparently the words "emphatic" and "empathetic" are now interchangable as well.
    I will not buy another book with this narrator. I would rather buy the book for my ereader and read it myself! Extremely disappointing, if this would allow me to give NO stars to performance I would have done that.

    "Entertaining but completely unbelievable plot"

    Entertaining but completely unbelievable plot! Not sure what planet this story-line would be plausible on but it sure ain't this one!
