Publisher's Summary

Marion MacAlister wants to nail her audition, not get nailed. Truly. Honestly. All right...maybe she does want to get nailed, but that's just because her hottie landlord and local diner owner Mack Ryan is confusing her. Can friends become lovers? Especially friends who might not even be friends in the first place?

Going Down is the sexy and hilarious first novella in the Five Wishes series.

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    Story
    "Wonderful Light Funny Romance"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    I absolutely adored this story! Occasionally I began to get a little annoyed with Marion and then she would do something sweet to change my mind. And Mack, when he opened up to Marion was so incredible...a guy any woman would want.

    So funny, sweet, endearing and I defiantly will look for this author and hope for the rest of the series.

    The narrator was so incredibly perfect! exactly as I would expect Marion to sound and perfect on Mack. Loved her in this story.
    Listen, buy it...enjoy it

    Story
    "Well done"

    As a consumer of mystery, suspense and Noir novels, it is nice to occasionally veer off of the path to see what is going in romance country. Elise Sax spun the tale at the perfect length with just enough romantic tension to make it interesting. Angie Hickman's narration was music with a nice variation between characters. This was a very pleasant audio book that the author, publisher or narrator provided to me in exchange for my review.

    "Funny Short Story"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. This was one of those quick books that make you laugh out loud. The narration was good and the story was well written. There was just enough tension to keep you listening.

    I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!

    Any additional comments?

    This was a nice little romance with a really good narrator. The story never got too bogged down with the crazy that propels some romances but it gave just enough to care about the HEA.

    The only problem I had with this listen was when Channing Tatum, in describing Mack, was referred to as Tatum Channing. (You just can't make that stuff up.) Other than that, this was a great listen! Well, even with that, this was a pretty good listen.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    Story
    "Cute but brief"
    Where does Going Down rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to a lot of audio books so it's hard to answer this question as far as ranking it. How do you rank 1 book out of 800+ audiobooks? I can say that it was cute and enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Going Down to and why?

    It sorta reminded me of Tara sivecs holiday novella series in some moments.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Elevator scene... and I laughed at the just three of us comment.


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

    Yes it is a very brief book, and easy to listen in one go.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this was quirky and cute start to a novella series. The first book is really brief so I was surprised that the last 2 chapters were preview for book 2. The narrator did a great job and I really felt like the voice matched the personality. I received this audiobook from audiobook boom for free for my unbiased review.

    Where does Going Down rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 20, really enjoyed this audiobook so much that I was sad when it ended.
    Excellent writing and Angie Hickman was fantastic, had me laughing from the start.
    Highly recommend this book if you want a laugh and are short on time.

    "Very Cute and Enjoyable Short Story"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest opinion. I thought Elise Sax did a great job with this romantic comedy. There were some funny spots with some cute analogies and puns. Very light reading. Elise gave us a complete story in short amount of time. However, the ending required me to finish it in my head. Not too hard to do. The narrator, Angie Hickman, did a great job of distinguishing each of the characters. She did not detract from the story as some narrators do. Love this short story. Also, great idea to give the reader an introduction of the next book at the end. I'm gonna download it now, just to hear the rest of the next story. Nice teaser.
