When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D'Alessandro five long years ago, he broke her heart.

After one intense night of giving in to temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

    "Mixed Feelings"

    I love all the books in this series and I was really looking forward to this book. I don't know if this book fell a little short for me because I had a hard time with the narrator or that I felt the story had no momentum but I was left wanting and had to push myself through this book which is weird as I've listened to the others in this series multiple times because I loved them so much.

    I will still continue to get books by this author as I think this book was an anomaly for me and I love the authors work, just not sure I will get this narrator again as she didn't work well for me. I loved the narrator on the other 3 books, I felt they were excellent picks and I enjoyed the change in narrator. I thought it gave each person's story their own voice.

    "Underwhelmed by this 4th book"

    The narrator is HORRIBLE! I had an extremely difficult time getting through it. She is reading what is suppose to be a hot, sexy story like you would a nursery rhyme to children. The inflection is all wrong, the pace is painfully slow and the Scottish accent is weak. Big fail on the publisher's part on casting the narrator, especially considering how fantastic the other three books were preformed.

    The story is a bit predictable but still with some hot scenes. But I didn't just fall in love with the characters in this one the way I did with the previous three books. I found Marco's sudden reappearance and devotion to waiver on the "seriously?" side while Hannah's naivety could be slightly obnoxious. But there are a couple twists that kept me going. Overall, not nearly as good as her other three but because they were so hard to put down I did want to finish this one.

    "Horrible Narrator, Immature and Annoying H/Hr"

    Between 2 1/2 and 3 Stars

    I loved the previous books in this series. And I thought that I would love finally getting Hannah and Marco's story. I was wrong.

    The entire story felt too overly dramatic, too immature, and I didn't connect with either Hannah or Marco. I honestly didn't care about their story, and found myself easily zoning out while listening, wondering when it would end. Part of this was due to the narrator, and I'll explain that shortly, but even if I had read this, rather than listened on audio, I would still have felt the same about the lackluster story and characters.

    I was confused by all the children of the previous couples -- I couldn't keep them straight. And may I ask what is with two of the previous heroines naming their kids after family? Jos named her kids after her DECEASED mom, dad and sister. o.0 And Ellie named her boy after her half-brother (Jos's husband), shortening the new baby to Bra (I assume that's how it was spelled, based on the pronunciation from the narrator). That just bothered me. I mean, I get it, some people like to name children after grandparents or what not. But naming your kids after your dead parents and sister just seems . . . beyond odd, to me at least.

    As to Hannah and Marco . . . I honestly didn't care if they got back together. The ridiculous drama and reactions (from both, mainly Hannah though) regarding their secrets, was f---ing annoying and I was done with it before the 30% mark. And no, not even the sex was able to save the story; I actually zoned out completely during 99% of the sex scenes. I listen while walking my dogs, and for much of the book, but especially the sex scenes, I was walking and thinking of the list of items I needed to do when I got home. While the narrator was yammering on about orgasms and erections. Yeah . . . that's not a good sign, people.

    Now, the narrator was horrible. She couldn't give characters different voices for sh*t. I spent half the book trying to figure out who was supposed to be talking. Hell, some of Hannah's high school students had more distinct character voices than Hannah and Marco did and that's NOT a good thing in an audiobook. I also couldn't tell the difference in voices between when Hannah was thinking in her head and when she spoke out loud. Also a bad thing. The narrator's over all voice was just meh, kind of boring and forgettable.

    So between the story and the narrator, this was not a good read for me. I highly doubt I'll listen to this particular narrator again. As to Young . . . I'll probably still try another book of hers, hoping that I can find that spark that was in her other books.

    I am a full time student. I love to read but have no time to read for fun; audible is the perfect solution to that.

    "Horrible narration"

    I had to listen to this at 1.5x speed and the narration still felt slow.

    Not impressed by the story; I guessed her "secret" pretty quickly and the story ended very abruptly.

    My least favourite of the series

    "Tried to like this book."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Im sorry, but the narration was terrible. I found it to be very distracting from the story line.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable.


    What didn’t you like about Chloe Lynn’s performance?

    Her accent and the way she spoke.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the first 3 novels.

    "Loved all prior books. but this one... not so much"
    What aspect of Chloe Lynn’s performance would you have changed?

    She whispered the whole book out. It was unfortunate because it ruined most fun parts. Maybe the author decided to pick this narrator to offset the more intense sex scenes in the book compared to the prior ones, but I disagree with the approach.


    Any additional comments?

    My biggest issue with this book is that I don't believe that the couple could forgive what they did to each other in real life. Over-dramatized breakup has its consequences and if I wanted to related to Hanna, the easy forgiveness she gives Marco spoils it for me.
    Samantha is a great writer, I hope she keeps up the quality of her prior work (please!). Don't rush it!

    "Disapointed in this Dublin St. story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, terrible narration and story very predictable and boring.


    Would you recommend Fall from India Place to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, but I recommend the other Dublin St. books.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was difficult to tell which character was speaking.


    Did Fall from India Place inspire you to do anything?

    Return the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not use Chloe Lynn to narrate -- basically, all her voices sound the same.

    "Another wonderful Samantha Young story!"

    I truly enjoyed this book. As always, Samantha Young's characters are believable and she makes you understand what motivates them. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "Not her best, but good."

    I love Samantha young, but this was her weakest book. I just couldn't relate to Hannah and found myself cursing her more times than not. She just seemed spoiled and I don't think that's how she was meant to come across.
    But it was a good listen. I don't regret getting the book 😀

    "So disappointing!"
    What would have made Fall from India Place better?

    I'm so disappointed! I've really enjoyed Samantha Young's other books, but this one falls very short of the mark. This story line was a series of one identical scenario played over and over again, just with different dialogue and settings.


    What was most disappointing about Samantha Young’s story?

    In every serious relationship, you eventually get to the point where you ask yourself, "When does 'compromise' become 'settling'?" In Samantha Young's other books, this inner struggle is believable, and the story maintains momentum as the characters work through their inner conflicts. Not so in 'Fall From India Place'. It is stagnant and gets perpetually stuck in the exact same issue over and over again. What results is a completely dysfunctional relationship that takes about 5 hours too long to resolve its one issue; absent any real growth, all that is left is pointless drama. If I wanted to be mired in that kind of pre-pubescent, irrational, narcissistic drama I would watch Jerry Springer.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Ms. Lynn's performance was horrible! I was continually confused by the time jumps due to an absence of appropriately lengthy pauses. In addition, her Scottish accent was non-existent. She was unable to make any of the characters sound distinctive from her own voice, which made the dialogue very confusing. Her performance was so bad that it would prevent me from buying another book narrated by her, even if the book itself looked like a winner.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I'm really disappointed. I'm hoping the poor quality of this book is a one-off, but I will hesitate before reading another Samantha Young.


    Any additional comments?

    Note that the first part of the book spends most of its time flashing back to Hannah's high school years, so the protagonist is, in essence, about 15 years old. Had I known, I would have given this book a miss. I'm not really interested in reading about the awkwardness of the teen years or the pain of unrequited love.
