If asked, 30-year-old Seth Carter could not have recounted a single moment since he'd met her that he had not loved the stubborn, self-centered, and admittedly spoiled Jenna Ranger. Even with all her faults, Jenna thinks no woman in her right mind would willing choose to spend all her free time with a man who so obviously loves his cell phone and work more than he does her.

As with the previous stories in this series the narration has been true to the book and this one features a new narrator.
My only complaint is this narrator tries to give the characters different voices-and fails. The voices change from sentence to sentence and mostly sound bored-especially the male voices.
I feel she would have been better just reading the story rather than taking this route.
The drama between Jenna and Seth got old really quickly. There was enough drama between them in the earlier books where I thought they would grow and learn to deal with their feeling and emotions in a more adult fashion. Jenna needs to grow up.
The introduction of the relationship between Talia and Allen saved the story for me. I loved getting to know Mason and seeing the interactions of the kids and Allen. More of this would have been appreciated, less of the drama between Jenna and Seth.
The narration match the pace and would have been great except I did not like the "country accent" the narrator adopted for Regina and other characters throughout the book
Not in its current version; however, any of the previous 3 books I would go see as a movie and/or a TV series. Not a big TV watchers so don't know the current stars.
This was my least favorite of the series; however, it was still an okay read. As a disclaimer, maybe I enjoyed reading about people in my age group better and just not so interested in the drama of the "metro" set.
I think Ms. McDonald spoiled me with the first three books in this series. I really enjoyed those characters, and the look at romance from a different point view (compared to all of the NA romances, I typically read). This may just be a result of having enjoyed the previous three books with the "more mature" characters so much, but Jenna and Seth were somewhat annoying... in particular Jenna, unfortunately. I began to grow tired of her whining and back and forth emotions when it came to Seth. While I understand that Jenna is much younger than the previous characters, I would think that she would be more mature for her age because she hangs out with more mature individuals. Because of this, I would have loved it if the book had spent more time on the Talia and Allen storyline, and less on Jenna and Seth. I LOVED that story line. I think Talia and Allen deserved their own book.
Only if they have read the other books in the series already. I don't feel this book was representative of the rest of this great series and not sure that it would entice someone to go back and read the first three books. By reading the other books previously, I feel my love for the characters from the previous books kept me interested in this book... Well, that and the Talia and Allen storyline. :)
Unfortunately, I was not a fan of this narrator. The narrator of the previous books in the series, was great and really set the tone for the series. This narrator had an interesting accent/ drawl and cadence to her voice, that I really did not care for. It was too slow and did not seem to fit the characters. Although she did better with Talia's (and her parents) British accent(s), in my opinion. Also there were several editing issues - throughout the book the narrator repeats lines, that were probably meant to be edited out.
More Talia, Allen, Mason, and Kendra of course! Not to beat a dead horse, but I LOVED this family, could not get enough. I could "assolutely" read an entire book just on Mason!
In addition to the Talia/ Allen story line, I really enjoyed checking in with the characters from previous books, as well as the book's ending. I really enjoyed this series and look forward to reading more from this author. I hope the previous narrator, Anne Johnstonbrown, is brought back for future books.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for my review.
She's a very strong-willed young professional woman and the he's trying to grow his business. They have chemistry and huge conflicts. Also get to catch up with characters from previous books in the series.
The narrator's voice easy on the ears and almost let the story tell itself.
I've previously read this book, but the audio version feels like it's almost a new story. Hearing the story has a totally different flow than reading it does. And I love that it can seemingly shorten the 7 hour drive between CA & AZ!
