Although it took a little while to adjust to the voices, I found this book to be well worth the credit. The story is funny (laugh out loud funny) and yet keeps you listening to see how the lead characters manage to end up together. I also enjoyed all the characters who played a major part in the overall experience.
Make Mine a Bad Boy is the second book in this series and was just as much fun as the first. Revisit the town and the people. By this point , you are used to the eccentricities of the people in town and can hardly wait to see what they dream up.
Obviously, Faith is the first choice, but Slate runs a close second
Lots of laughs. I enjoy romance novels with humor in them. This book had plenty of humor.
I hope that there will be more books by this author as she is on my favorite authors list. There are several authors that I will buy their books as soon as they come out and Katie Lane deserves a place on the list.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I actually liked the plot! And it was so funny! Faith finds out she has a twin sister at age 30 when her adoptive mother dies. She decides to go to Texas to look for her. Faith finds a small town full of crazy people and gorgeous cowboy who makes her knees weak. Its a funny, interesting, heart warming journey into love, family and new friends.
I've never read a book that I would compare this one to. But it did remind me a little about the movie Sweet Home Alabama. I really liked that movie and I really liked this book.
This is the first book I've listened to by this narrator. She's very good with the southern accents and great with male voices. I would definitely look for more books narrated by Ms. Poole.
Everything you never knew you wanted...
My first book by Katie Lane and narrated by Nicole Poole. I enjoyed both the story and the narration. I'm a girl from the Caribbean but this cowboy love story really did it for me. Highly recommend it if you like romantic funny stories.
the necking scene in the truck
the timing and pause of a real conversation
when she leaves and realized she made a mistake
The premise of this book is stupid. Let's just admit it. The thing that it has going for it is that the author seems to realize this as well. Although I nearly stopped listening after the first hour, when idle thought had revealed half a dozen ways that the central problem of this book could have been solved, I did like the characters, who were more complex than the formulaic premise might lead one to believe.
This story definitely requires the suspension of disbelief, but if you stick with it, I believe you'll find the results rewarding.
Say something about yourself!
Yes. Especially those who enjoy the humor of Jennifer Crusie and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
No, but I'll be sure to check out some of her other performances. She was terrific!
No crying, but a lot of laughing.
Her voices were very good, easy to tell the different voices. Just the right speed.
It started out rather slow but as I got into it, the humor came through and the story improved. The narration was great.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
A lighthearted, easy going, slow paced, romantic romp in a small town in Texas - easygoing, fun and an easy listen.
Worth a credit? I wasn't disappointed nor would I scream for my money back so, if you can take lots of sugar in your stories, then I guess it's a yes.
