Close to You: A Laurel Heights Novel, Book 2

When Treat Byrnes walks into her bookstore cafe, Eve Alexander wants to eat him up. Bad boy isn't her usual flavor, but for the sexy contractor, she's willing to take a walk on the wild side. Treat meets Eve on a reconnaissance mission for his mother, who owns a neighboring teashop, but he keeps going back to Eve for her sweet smile and sassy shoes. He has a history of falling for the damsels-in-distress, but Eve doesn't need rescuing. Not even when her cafe is sabotaged.

    "Sweet Romance"

    This was the perfect book for a weekend 'audible rendezvous'. Short, sweet, and just a bit sassy. I wanted to listen to something somewhat lightweight and romantic, and this totally hit the spot. #1 Xe Sands' smoky-smooth-sultry voice is a little intoxicating so that was really enough to put me into a trance which is just what I need after a long week. The storyline is a little predictable, but, it was interesting and funny enough to keep me listening and willing to buy the next one in the series. Looking forward to the next!

    "Sweet Romance"
    What did you love best about Close to You?

    I loved the secondary romance in the book. An older woman, who is a widow and really lost in life, lost in fear of being alone and unable to support herself, finds a wonderful man of her age who pursues her dispite her objections. It is very sweet.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have read all the Laurel Heights stories. When I saw it was in Audible, I was so excited to hear the narrators take on the characters. I love to listen while I work and this book didn't disappoint me.


    Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not


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

    There wasn't a reason to cry. It is a fun chic lit that makes you feel good and giggle here and there.

    Where does Close to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First


    What did you like best about this story?

    The persistence of old man pursuing Treat's mother.


    What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

    I have nothing to compare it to but at least she made the story come alive for me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The sexual interaction between Eve and Treat.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first time with an audiobook and even though it took me a while to wrap my imagination around having a female voice in my head, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even posted a recommendation on Facebook. Loved all the characters, even Treat's mother. At least it all worked out in the end. Loved Eve's friend (gonna have to get me some sexy shoes :-) ) This book is a must read, or should I say a must listen. Good job Xe.
