Publisher's Summary

Kaitlin Reynolds is used to fearlessly flying off mountains. But nearly two years after a devastating injury has ended her ski jumping career, Kaitlin is still struggling to put one foot in front of the other and find her new life. A chance meeting with a handsome stranger begins to put life into perspective. Dashing figure skater, Declan McLoughlin has just returned from the Olympics amid a swirl of publicity and fanfare. Just as Kaitlin begins to have hope again, her charming savior turns out to represent everything she has lost. If Kaitlin can just let go of the past and take a leap of faith, will she find herself soaring into Declan's arms?

    "Jump For Joy ๐Ÿ™Œ"

    This quirky romance had me hooked from the beginning and kept my interest throughout.......I had to stay up late to finish it. ๐Ÿ˜

    Caitlin and Declan meet as strangers and begin a journey that's funny, romantic, emotional and challenging. As the story unfolds, we witness how much they have in common and how their differences influence them by the Authors use of Dual Points Of View.. With each point of view we see both perspectives of a situation, which really enhanced the character development. It's a sweet story of love through heartbreak and disappointment that will tug at your heart and leave you smiling.

    I enjoyed the narration of this book. She was easy to listen to and voiced each character quite well. ๐Ÿ‘

    Note: There is some swearing and one sex scene in this story........but nothing explicit. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    This book was a pleasure to listen to and I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

    "Great Listen!"
    What did you love best about Jump, Jive, and Wail?

    Interesting story line and great narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jump, Jive, and Wail?

    The airport scene when Kaitlyn falls into Declan.


    Which character โ€“ as performed by Lisa Beacom โ€“ was your favorite?

    Kaitlyn


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

    Yes, I definitely did not want to have to stop it.


    Any additional comments?

    I was left at the end feeling as if I wanted more, so I hope maybe this will turn into a series. I really enjoyed the performance, especially the Russian and Irish accents.

    Any additional comments?

    3.5 stars
    Very enjoyable listen. Really good story, that pulls you in from the start. Creative and unusual opening setting for the meeting of the main characters, as well as the interesting connection they have.

    This is a slow building romance story. Yes there's insta attraction but the timing is not right for more at the time. I like that the story takes place over time. It made the characters more real/believable. While I enjoyed the story it was almost on the verge of to much angst, I was almost to the point of "come on get it together already". Although this is an emotional roller-coaster of a story, it's also a very entertaining, fun and humorous listen.

    The story is told in dual POV's between Declan and Kaitlin. Great cast of characters

    Lisa Beacom does a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice, very easy on the ears. Clearly spoken. Smooth even pace. Great character voices. She was able to convey all the emotions and humor of the characters. All around very enjoyable.

    "Loved The Story"

    I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. Declan and Caitlin meet under unusual circumstances. They dance around each other from one situation to the next. They also help each other figure out what they not only want in life but what they need. I am glad that Caitlin let go of a man who not only cheated on her but belittled her because of her accident. Declan became the man that she relly needed but he also had issues that he needed clearing up. Through honest communication, they learned to see the lighter side of life. The narrator was too soothing for me. I believe that a little more something should have been infused into some of the scenes to really bring them out.

    "Great Listen"

    I really enjoyed this book. It had many elements that made this different from my usual reads with Declan's profession and Kaitlin's medical issues and previous profession. This was what I would call a slow burn romance but I liked that aspect because Declan and Kaitlin really got to know each other. This book kept me really engaged because I hardly ever listen to a book in one day. This is the first book I have listened to from this narrator and she did a really good job. Look forward to more from the narrator and this author.

    Made me laugh quite a bit. Love the banter back and forth between the main characters. I could listen to this narrator all day!
