Publisher's Summary

The first time Travis North lays eyes on Liana McDermott, she's wearing the most hideous bridesmaid dress he's ever seen. He doesn't immediately recognize the world-famous super model who is attending her cousin Enid's wedding at the country club he owns. Thanks to Enid's shameless matchmaking, Travis and Liana become acquainted and later embark on a two-week fling intended to be free of emotion and entanglement. As Liana's return to work gets closer, however, Travis wonders how he'll ever let her go when the time comes while Liana considers whether he might be her true north. Two high-powered careers, two amazing weeks and a love that comes along just once in a lifetime. Is she ready to give up her career for a different kind of life? Does he want the same things she does? After insisting on an emotionless affair, she can't very well ask him. Or can she?

    "Wrong narrator?"

    The narrator, while she has a great voice, her delivery was so flat I don't think she did the book justice. She may be better not doing a romantic story. Her announcing the chapter was more lively than happy scenes.

    "My mistake"
    What would have made True North better?

    I bought this book based on a few reviews and the price was right. I need to remember to read more reviews and listen to the demo. I didn't love the performance and I probably skipped a third of the book so I wouldn't have to listen to book porn. I would've liked some substance- this book didn't have it.


    What was most disappointing about Marie Force’s story?

    It was a mindless read- and did the writer get a bonus for every "sweetheart" written into the story?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holly Fielding?

    Gah!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from True North?

    All the pet names and graphic sex

    "Typical romance novel"

    This was a typical romance. The female character was a model. The narrator gave her an, "I'm bored" voice. The story is based on two beautiful people; the man chasing the woman. I won't be re-reading it.

    "Not as good as the fatal series"

    This was just ok for me. Worth the credit but no rave review here. Narrator put me to sleep. She should not read romance. No emotion

    "I Did Not Like the Narrator"

    I just read reviews and agree with them on a couple of items.

    1. I would rather have had two books with the two romances. I too agree that the Jesse and Beck story was a better one.

    2. The narrator while has a nice voice isn't a good narrator. I had difficulties distinguishing who she was reading about, when she changed paragraphs. There was little or no inflection in her voice. I found myself pausing the story and restating out loud to myself what was said with the inflection it needed.

    3. I would give the author another chance but NOT the narrator.

    "A lovely story with so-so narration"

    This book popped up as an audible recommendation and wanting something new, I decided to try it. The story is sweet, though I agree with other reviewers that the real love story is with Beck and Jessie in the subplot. Still, the characters are believable and human (considering we're talking about millionaires and supermodels).

    What didn't work for me as well is the narration. Holly Fielding has a great voice; I just don't think it's the right voice for sweet romance. Her tone carried a note of tragedy to it that squashed a lot of the happier, lighter moments. It wasn't bad; it just could have been better.

    I enjoyed the book enough that I'd give Marie Force another try.

    "Ok story.. less than ok narration"

    I have mixed feelings about this story and the narrator.
    Story: while it was sweet and the happily ever after was very satisfying I must say that there were actually too many sex scenes that didn't add anything to the story. It felt like sex was a filler of about half of the story. Also, this story includes two romances and both females are high profile top models (celebrities) that leave everything behind for men. Meanwhile the men don't sacrifice anything at all for them. I don't like that message. Two weeks of romance and love and women just fall at the feet of their men.

    Narrator: While the Ms. Holly Fielding has a very nice voice and her male voices were excellent, she did a voice for the Heroine as groggy. It almost put me to sleep. I doubt any top model would have such a tired groggy voice. So every-time the heroine spoke it was flat and sleepy.

    This is not Ms. Force's best work so you should try the Gansett Island series first and only get this title if you get it on a very good sale.
