    "Pretty good."

    The story was pretty good and I thought the narrator did a good job. My only issue is that the voice used for Ryan didn't really match the guy on the cover. He sounded a little dorky. Sorry.

    Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.

    "Decent"

    I am new to books by Marie Force I got this one on a whim. The content was good, the narration was lacking. The voice of Ryan, in my opinion was terrible. He was a football celebrity, hunky, smart, and good looking a (jock), the voice made him sound like a jerk. His character was much more than what the narrator gave him. He did some of the other characters fairly well, that is what saved the book. Ryan was all wrong.

    The story held its own, otherwise the narration would have been hard to deal with. The story made you want to know how it would end up therefore, you will get through the weird voice of Ryan. This was a nicely develop romance with a few twist and turns to make it interesting. It was a nice listen. Of course it was not a book that you simply could not figure it out, but it was a nice calm listen. A little sex, humor, and drama.

    "Ummm Horrible Narration"

    I think I might have actually like the story if the ultra thick country accent of the hubby wasn't so bad. Texans don't talk like that!

    Story
    "Great Book. Couldn't get through it on Audio"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not the audible, but yes to the book. I feel that the narrator over-exagerated the hero's twang and it came out more comical than anything else.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryan, the hero. He's level-headed and knows exactly what he wants.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe a different narrator. Not sure.


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

    Made me laugh a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book itself, but I had to read it on my Kindle because the narration of the hero's voice was going to ruin it for me. Not only am I not a big fan of the southern accent, but I think the narrator overdid it.
    The book itself was funny, light, romantic and steamy. The characters are all in their 30's and act like it so it isn't YA (which I hate for romance) or NA (which is a hit or miss). It's exactly what I was looking for in a romance novel. I'm leaving my favorite part of the book for the end of this review since it's a bit of a spoiler, so if you don't want to know if there's an HEA then stop reading now. I loved that the characters spend the whole book being together. Yes there are obstacles and the book keeps you guessing, but the characters are always together and having steamy scenes. I can't stand romance novels where practically the entire book is spent getting them together (without so much as a kiss) until the very end and all you get is the epilogue of them being together.


    Happy Reading!

    "another excellent book by Marie Force"

    I like Narrator Tanya Eby but some of the voices I just couldn't take seriously.
    the story itself was awesome

    "Infuriating Female"



    Although this was a good book, I was so annoyed with the Female lead. If there was an award for easily manipulated, she would win it. Everyone butted into her marriage and she let them. She listened and talked to everyone but her husband. Can you say TSTL!

    I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!
