    "Save yourself some time"

    Don't buy this. By the end of the book I was just wanting it to be over. Long and drawn out with no real purpose to it after a while. She does, but she doesn't. She does, but she can't. It got old real quick. Not to mention I found myself resigned to the fact the kid was going to die and nothing could be done. Which just makes the miracle at the end all that more unbelievable. I mean it is a romance it's supposed to have a happy ending, but please make me believe it. And the narration was just bad. The men's voices were just plain awful and the women's were laughable at best. Save your time and money. It's best used for something else.

    Story
    "This story makes you cry, laugh and sigh..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh absolutely. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. A single mom with a very sick child looking for someone who can fund research for a cure of her son's disease. Any mother can relate to the story because when you have a sick child you will do anything to save him. Even the cheese parts like her


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Accidentally Yours?

    The ending, although I can't explain why because I would ruin the story to anyone who has not listened to it... But the ending is good, very very good. ;)


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Therese Plummer is the best narrator ever. Her voice is pleasant and you can always differentiate each character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it's nice, sweet, romantic, sexy... One of my favorite Susan Mallery books.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to all moms and to people who like Harlequin type romantic stories.

    "It grew on me"

    This was not a stay-up-late-because-I-can't-turn-it-off book. In fact, a few times I took a break and listened to something else. But, I did come back, and the story gets better and better as it goes along. Stick with it!

    Story
    "Author is New To Me & I Probably Won't Buy Another"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Someone who wants to hear a story based completely in 'Fantasy Land'. The premise is silly and becomes more unbelievable [not in a good way] as the story continues.

    Maybe I'm being a bit harsh but I wouldn't even recommend it as a 'beach or chick' read and is one of the 2 or 3 books I feel was a waste of my time.

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

    The story becomes more unrealistic as it goes along. The author seemed to try to include every horrible thing that could happen to her characters (both) characters and the ending....Ah, I HATE SPOILERS so I'll say the ending was unrealistic as well.


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

    She was good and did help me stay engaged to the story.


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

    Not a thing - she did well for the material.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Other reviews say they were moved to tears and thrown into fits of laughter-none of that from me. Average to less than average fluff.

    Story
    "This just missed the mark"

    Wanted: to be relieved from dying child book when looking for a simple fun romance. I am not sure how the idea of mixing in one dead child and a dying one became a great foundation for a romance book. It just seems to me... kinda, i don't know, depressing, sad, and all around- not fun. This is why I usually stray away from Non-Fiction. If i really wanted my pleasure reading to be real life... then sure, but this is supposed to be for FUN! This book, not fun. I mean, I see the fantasy in it.

    Single mother, on the brink of poverty, sick child, cue the billionaire.

    But this book focuses too much on the process of "finding a cure" (which, cough, is totally and completely bogus... plus i work in scientific research, and i just had to continuously roll my eyes... which brings me back to why i don't read "real life" books). So, had she just ditched the "cure" story plot line, i'm sure i would have enjoyed it more. Since she didn't... i don't like this book. not credit worthy. Drags on. NOT a normal susan mallery book. Usually her reads are laugh out loud funny, with romance whipped in!

    This one just left me wanting to get put out of my misery.

    "very heart warming story"
    What did you love best about Accidentally Yours?

    Nathans love and care he showed for Cody and Carrie


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Accidentally Yours?

    whe Nathan told Cody that he loved his mom


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Love Therese Plummer. I find that I don't search out authors, but instead I look for books that she narrates


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when Cody asked his mom to let him die


    Any additional comments?

    a couple of pretty interesting twists and turns. I would have liked to had a book 2, that took me from Cody's healing to their marriage. It jumped too fast at the end.

    Story
    "A Bit Simplistic, But Still a Good Listen"

    There's a lot to like about this moving novel. It features a hard-working single mom, a witty but sick little boy, a billionaire fighting personal demons, and even an older woman who serves as a substitute mother figure. More than likely, the first time you listen to this book you will both smile and cry. Unfortunately, there were some problems with the storyline. It's hard to explain them without giving away too much of the story. But basically, the story just seemed a little too oversimplified. The author seems to overemphasize, or overly repeat, the issues the two main characters are facing. I'm not sure how the author could have fixed this...perhaps throwing in a few more curve balls so the storyline didn't seem so flat.

    If you are familiar with Therese Plummer's narration, you'll find she performs up to her normal standards. Sometimes her narration can be a bit awkward. But overall, I thought she did a good job.

    All in all, I would say this is an emotional, but feel good novel with a sweet love story.
