Publisher's Summary

To the talented vocalist Justin Jones, love is merely a game that he plays by his own rules. But to Bridget Dubois, love and heartache are one and the same. Broken too many times before, the delicate beauty keeps her emotions carefully concealed. Bridget has her own set of rigid rules when it comes to men. She prefers to avoid them altogether, especially dangerously seductive auburn haired emerald eyed players like Justin. But the new lead singer of the rising rock band Tempest doesn't like to be ignored.

Justin is used to getting what he wants, and now he’s set his sights on Bridget. Suddenly, it’s no longer a game. What do you do when the one you can’t have turns out to be the one you can’t live without? As the pressure builds, will it temper them or will it shatter them both like fragile crystal?

    Story
    "LOVE HEALS"
    What did you love best about Enticing Interlude?

    I am obsessed with this series...
    I live how when their are song lyrics their is background music.
    I love how even though only 2 narrators they adjust their voices to give each character their own voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the story line and how love heals. That sometimes when we are at our lowest all it takes is one person to change it all


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Wen brings his uniqueness the fact he can do Justin's sexy voice then Carters sweet child like voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing series that Kai and Wen bring to life can't wait to LISTEN to the next boom.

    "Overcoming Your Past"
    Where does Enticing Interlude rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5, without a doubt. It's an amazing book, and the narrators just make it that much more amazing


    What other book might you compare Enticing Interlude to and why?

    I don't know that I would compare it to any other book. Every book is different. The good, bad and ugly of a book is that way for a reason. What makes one book a good book will not necessarily make another book good. It all depends on the story and the quality of writing.


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

    Yes I have. I love Wen Ross's voice! Wen Ross has mad ninja skills in the voice department!! I've yet to listen to book narrated by Wen Ross that I didn't enjoy


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Can two people overcome their past mistakes to find true love and happiness with each other? Or, will their pasts drag them down and keep them apart forever?

    Too cheesy? Haha, I never claimed to be any good at tag lines. Does that even count as a tag line?


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great story. I'm really loving this series. I can't wait to listen to the next book. Also, Carter has to be one of the cutest kids ever written! I love him! Champ was the perfect nickname for him

    Story
    "Tempests new leading man is up...."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Enticing Interlude to be better than the print version?

    I can't honestly answer this question, as I have yet to read the print version of this book. But I will say that you pick up on different things when reading a book, than you do when listening to a book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how broken, Bridget is able to find herself again, although she still has some ups & downs, she sticks to her guns & fights on... slowly letting Justin in, getting to know him. Then Justin, wow... he had some massive patience & where some would have sneared at a young mother, he embraces the situation & helps.


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

    I have listened to 9 other audiobooks with Wen narrating & really they can't be compared. Wen makes you able to feel even more emotion coming from a character, than if I was reading the book out loud to myself.


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

    Hmmm this is actually an easy question to answer, although I have more than 1 scene, but this scene I think tops it...
    The scene when Bridget finally stands up for herself in the boardroom, knocking down her step-mother's threats & then also hitting her ex where it would have hurt him the worst.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this story, Justin, Bridget & Carter just bring a wholeness to the series, not being as dark as book 1 (Irresistable Refrain), but still with the drama, suspense, twists & turns needed for total enjoyment.

    "Stronger Than Ever"
    Where does Enticing Interlude rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's at the top of course! Kia and Wen bring it all to life!


    What other book might you compare Enticing Interlude to and why?

    Boy in the Band reminds me a of this this installment becase it's about a band member that goes through some tough changes just like Warren.


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

    Yes, I have, he is remarkably talented and does what ever he reads justice. He really makes you feel it!


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

    There are a lot of lol moments, but there is also moments where my heart just broke, and yes I teared up a few times.

    Story
    "Hot, Steamy, and Sweet Romance!!!!"
    Would you listen to Enticing Interlude again? Why?

    Absolutely! It was a beautiful story of heartache and finding love when least expecting it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Justin. He was so sweet and understanding and very dependable. Not to mention hot!


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

    Well, he certainly brings life into every character he portrays. His voice is so soothing, not to mention SUPER HOT! I couldn't imagine the book with him narrating it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love, Sex, and Rock & Roll.


    Any additional comments?

    The Tempest series is by far my favorite series I have read. It not only gives you a glimpse of the harsh realities of life, but it also gives you hope that there is always something better. The love the characters feel for each other is beautiful. Michelle Mankin's storytelling is rhythmic and simply amazing. The narrators both Kai Kennicot and Wen Ross did another phenomenal job bring the story to life.

    Story
    "Soft and Sweet"

    I was glad the author toned down this story from the first one in the seris. Looks like there was a previous series before this one that this hero and the hero from the first book both played a role in. However, the first series is not available on audible, so I did not catch it. I may try to ho back and read. Another reason I am glad this story was softer is I expect the next one to be as anghsty and depressing as the first, if not more so since it is about War, and he caused most of the chaos in book one. This was an easy listen. The narrators both did well. I had some trouble with the female narrator on the first book, but she was much better with this installment. No mumbling. Overall, good story. Not sure I agree with the last issue the couple had. Why would anyone believe what a perfect stranger says and then react without investigating? The "ex causing trouble" storyline has been done to death and should be eliminated; to be used only in life or death emergencies. The life or death of the author that is...

    "Overcoming your past"
    Would you listen to Enticing Interlude again? Why?

    I most definitely would listen to this one again. I really enjoyed this story. It's what I would consider a 'light' romance. Slow build up to sizzling. Love it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Enticing Interlude?

    I loved the one on one time that Justin spent with Carter. You can tell he loves Carter for himself not just because he is Bridget's son. He knows that Carter is looking to him as the male influence in his life.


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

    Their is just something about Wen's voice that just sucks you much more into the story.


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

    Yes and I did.

    If you could sum up Enticing Interlude in three words, what would they be?

    Struggle, hardship, love


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Enticing Interlude?

    When they quit lying to themselves and admitted that there was something between them, that they needed each other as much as they did.

    Story
    "Enticing Audiobook"

    This was another enjoyable book. What I like about this series is that it’s not predictable. After all the rockstar romances I’ve read, I’ve come to expect certain things. These books tend to go deeper than what I expect. There is more character development and a different plot than I often come across. While there are graphic sex scenes, they are not over-the-top or so numerous as to overwhelm the plot. They also work well when read aloud. Maybe part of that is the wonderful narration by Kai and Wen, but they don’t sound like bodice ripper scenes in the audiobooks.

    I really like the characters in this book as well. I usually don’t get into kids in romance novels, especially rocker books, but Carter worked well in this one. I really like Justin but regret not reading the Brutal Strength series first. Interlude can be read as a standalone, but it had spoilers to that earlier series, and now I want to go back and read it.

    I didn’t quite like this one as much as Irresistible Refrain, though. The band wasn’t in it quite as much, and I found Bridget’s character to be a little inconsistent near the end, which was a blessing and a curse. She was stronger than I expected in some scenes but then weak when I expected her to be strong. It was nice that she wasn’t predictable, but it took away from the believability factor for me.

    Overall, it was a fun read, and I’d give the story 4 ½ stars.

    Kai and Wen nailed their rendition of this, and it is a rendition, not a read aloud. They bring the characters alive and live the story. They are both good at varying their voices for different characters.

    Once you've had Kai and Wen, you can't go back to single narrators who simply read aloud.
