Publisher's Summary

What happens when Mr. Slow and Steady finds himself on a collision course with Ms. Full-Speed-Ahead?

The forecast is smooth sailing for Oliver Chancellor, one of Galveston’s premier financier. Destined to take his place in his family’s bank, Chance is content with the future that’s been mapped out for him, right down to his upcoming engagement to a prim debutante.

But when beautiful Aurora St. Claire crosses his path, Chance recklessly plunges into uncharted territory with nothing but his heart to guide him-and a beautiful woman to tempt him.

Propelled by a lifelong dream to buy the island home reportedly haunted by her colorful ancestors, Aurora desperately needs Chance’s help in securing a business loan and she won’t take no for an answer. In the midst of convincing the hesitant blue blood to take a chance on her dream, Aurora awakes his hidden streak of red-hot passion. Before they know it, the mismatched pair are all tangled up in a reckless desire and headed for trouble-trouble in the name of love.

    "Great Texas Love Story"

    Being from Texas, it was great to visualize the places referenced. Loved that it was all centered around a B&B.

    Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.

    Story
    "FIX CHAPTER 20!!!!!"

    Decent story. Light and fluffy summer reading. Somewhat improbable, but light romantic fantasy reading. This is my second time through, so decent enough for a re-listen.

    Great narration. Top-notch narrator. Good inflection. Nice grasp of emotions and voices.

    CRAP editing. Since the last time I listened was about a year ago, I forgot but sincerely hope this will be fixed by the next time I download it. Thank goodness for Whispersynch.

    Chapter 20: (Story is at a critical part where h confronts H. AKA WORST POSSIBLE TIME FOR A SCREW UP)

    "I don't understand." Her eyes searched his for answers. He took a breath and let it out in an------

    "Pleased to meet you," she said in a low, husky voice. "So, this is Pearl Island.........one of the possible resting places of Jean Le Feat's treasure"-----

    "As we grew older, we started doing things on our own because we enjoyed...... Somewhere along the way, it quit being a question and----------

    "My father raised me on tales of the pirates.........which is why he named me Jackie"-------

    "No, of course not. There's more to it than that," isn't there? The thought stopped him cold. A realization.......which was why kissing her felt so wrong------------

    "So, which one of you wants to fill me in on this shindig tomorrow night?....................they'll need a hotel and rental car while we're here"--------

    (unintelligible) felt like they were back up on a precipice, but this time, he knew nothing would hold him back. He was ready to take the final step over the edge. "Aurora, (spoiler not going to type)." "What," she whispered as her expression filled with-------------

    "That's alright, I'll stay on my ship," Jackie stated....................."Where you live," Adrian frowned, "As in full-time?" Jackie gave him a challenging look. "Do you have a problem with that,"----------------

    he smiled gently and cupped her cheek with his palm..................

    NOT GOOD.

    This isn't on the author or the narrator. This is production. Someone needs to take care of business like a professional. The author and her series should not have to suffer because of production laziness.

    "Excellent"
    What did you love best about Falling for You?

    The emotions and feelings of the characters. Julie does an excellent job of making the characters real. People are complicated and it is so true how we see and feel differently about things that happen. This books was so real life to me - maybe because Chance and my hubby are very much alike. They have to think and then rethink about everything. I also liked how what we think is expected is not always what is best. Very good book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chance - he reminds me so much of my husband. The way he processes thoughts and his actions.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many - I think the boat scene when Chance visited the boat with friends.


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

    I really liked the book - I love listening to stories. Being read to is one of my favorite activities.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a great book for me - I love how Julie writes...I am on a mission to read/listen to all of her books. I have listened to the Perfect Trilogy and read the Texas Heat Series. This is the 1st in the Pearl Island series....not off to listen to Book 2 in the series Lead Me On. I really like buying the books with the Whispersync - letting me listen and read.Eva did an excellent job narrating the book. Her voice is very easy to listen too.

    "Storyline never went where I thght it would. Nice"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I really liked the storyline of this book. It weaved in and out with frustrating moments and heartwarming moments. A fun read


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

    I have listed to Ms Kaminsky before. She does a nice job with all the inflections and different characters
