Publisher's Summary

Sheltered preacher's daughter Haley Foster ran away from her small town to do all the "bad" things she'd never done. She soon found herself in a hotel room with U.S. Marshal Kevin Harmon. But her knight in shining armor showed no interest in teaching a disappointed Haley Lovemaking 101....

Kevin had every interest in teaching the bold, beautiful virgin in front of him a few lessons in love. But his integrity - and a deep-rooted fear of commitmen - kept him in check. Then an unexpected road trip with eager Haley put his resolve to the test. And soon they were both on a wild journey of discovery and setting a new course - for love.

    Story
    "A waste of time. This book made me crazy."

    This story made me nuts, but I kept listening because the other reviewers said it ended up alright. Generally I do not run into audiobooks where I want to turn them off and never listen to them again. I will not listen to this one again as my teeth hurt from gritting them while listening to the seriously dumb but supposedly naive and sheltered heroine. I mean, I do not see how any female could have been so clueless. Truly I was a naive young woman after being sheltered too much, but this heroine was just... stupid. It was actually stressful to listen and to react so negatively to the story line.

    Generally I never write a negative review. I did give a 3 star rating for the narrator, but honestly ... as I won't ever listen to the book again, it's a 1 star rating for the story.

    This book was so bad, according to my tastes, that I'm not sure I am willing to trust another book by this author. I'm so glad that I did not waste a credit on this audiobook, but got it on sale for about $5. It doesn't hurt so bad.. but it was wasted money as far as I'm concerned.

    The narrator was also 'okay'. Her voice is nice, but I did not hear much difference between her male voices. They all pretty much sounded the same. But she did fine with the female lead; although she had little to work with as the book was so bad, and the heroine so incredibly dumb, naive and submissive.

    My recommendation is to not purchase this book, unless you like to read about women who have no mind of their own, who know nothing about life in any regard, who do what others want them to do without speaking up, and who go from wearing shapeless dresses to midriff baring tops. The book made me nuts in just about every way possible, and I've not had that experience before. And normally I'm a positive and upbeat person... but not after this book!

    Story
    "Easy to listen to, sweet story"
    Would you listen to Completely Smitten again? Why?

    No, but I don't usually listen or read books again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Completely Smitten?

    When she changed how she dressed and knocked his socks off.


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

    It was an easy book to listen to and she did great with the female leads voice but I didn't care for her voice for the male character.


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

    I smiled a lot at the reactions that Haley had to different things.

    Story
    "A Bit Too Sweet"

    I've read Susan Mallery books before, so I expected to enjoy this one also. However, while the storyline is interesting, it's really difficult to fall for. The heroine, Haley Foster, is impossibly naive. Seriously, I don't see any way that a person could be as naive/ignorant as Mallery made this character. It made Haley's words & actions eye-roll inducing. I also thought the story was a bit too simplistic and predictable. Of course, we all know (and want) the hero & heroine to come together in the end. But there didn't seem to be any twists and turns in Haley and Kevin's relationship. It's nice that they are complete opposites, or at least they initially believe they are. But there weren't really any bumps in the road during their relationship...nothing to test the mettle of their love. Additionally, Haley's ex-fiance--indeed her whole pre-road-trip life--seem one-dimensional.

    In all, I wouldn't necessarily advise against purchasing this book. But I would definitely consider waiting until it's on sale.

    P.S. Therese Plummer did a good job as narrator.

    A great combo - Susan Mallery and Therese Plummer. A very enjoyable, delightful story with one of the best narrators. Sit back and enjoy.

    "A Good Read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Completely Smitten to be better than the print version?

    Would have liked a little more detail - thought the story was a bit short - but a nice read.t

    There is seemingly no cure for voracious reading. Thank goodness for Kindle and audible listening.

    "Lighthearted listen."
    Where does Completely Smitten rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    New to audiobooks. I found this predictable but lighthearted and enjoyed the story. The male character was not always believable being performed by a female voice.

    Story
    "Too predictable for me"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It wasn't well spent for me, but I am not into gushy romance type stories. I think the characters and the plot were a little predictable. However, I know other listeners who like romance and predictability. It wasn't so bad that I didn't finish the book and it did keep my attention most of the time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Susan Mallery again?

    The narator did a good job at distiguishing the characters. She tends to act out the sequences of the book instead of just reading it. I like that in a narrator.


    Did Therese Plummer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did a good job differentiating the characters, but they weren't believable. As I've said before the characters and plot were predictable to me.


    Did Completely Smitten inspire you to do anything?

    This book is not inspiring to me.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been very critical in my reviews of books in the past. I tend not to be on this book because I expected the book to be romance mush and I expected it to be predictable. So it met my expectations. This book was not for me, but it may be for you. If you get into the Harlequin Romance type books then you will like this. I am more of a Suspense Thriller type listener, but it was purchased during a sale and I was looking for a few books to get me through some long work hours of boring data processing. It worked for what I wanted it to and that was to keep my mind off of the boring work I had to do.

    "Cute and Simple"
    If you could sum up Completely Smitten in three words, what would they be?

    Cute and simple


    Any additional comments?

    This book was okay. It was cute, simple, and a bit anti-climactic.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "Sweet, but more saccharine than sugar"

    I love Susan Mallery, but this is one book I could have missed and not missed at all. I didn't particularly care for Haley, though her growth in strength was interesting. But really, she's not someone I would ever find in my social circle unless she was a relative. A little too innocent. But maybe I'm just jaded. :)
