Publisher's Summary

Gigi Bassano

Young. Beautiful. Idealistic. Proud. Gigi was raised outside the Andrade clan, but it has left her with an ache she cannot deny. When she's invited to her brothers' weddings, she refuses at first, then changes her mind and attends without telling anyone. She won't let herself love them, but she can't stay away. It's a recipe for disappointment and heartbreak...especially when she throws herself at her brother's best friend, Kane.

Kane Sander

Sexy, rich, loyal, protective. He shouldn't want her. But he will. He should stay away from her. But he won't. Love doesn't follow anyone's rules. Deny it. Run from it. Love always finds a way.

©2015 Ruth Cardello (P)2016 Ruth Cardello

    "Not a fan of this narrator 😕"

    If I buy any more of this series, it will be in book form. It is easier to skip ahead that way....the narrator was awful! All the women sounded like bubble headed bimbos, and while some of the men's voices were ok, The voice of Alessandro resembled a cartoon character. I would much rather have someone just straight up read from the book than be irritated by the voices.

    "poor narration"

    The book out shines the audio version. The narrator has eliminated all ethnic accents. British educated main Character sounds like she grew up in Cleveland. Italian uncles have changed their accents to sound S if they were born in Alabama!. Save your money.

    "the story was great but the reading was horrible"

    this is the final in an awesome series and story was ok, just ok. Gigi was way too winey and definitely not ready for a real man which she got.

    the story reading however is definitely the worst I have ever herd and I am an avid book reader. I see myself listening to the others for many years to come but not this one, it will only be read.

    "Good book with loving characters"

    Gigi was insecure with her place in the Andrade's family.
    After coming to her brothers wedding and being swept off her feet by the handsome Kane, she faces her life with the hope to be able to fit and be accepted by them. Lovely story!!

    "Disappointed in narrator"

    I feel books in a series should all be narrated by the same person. Four of the five in this series were; the last was terrible. It was like meeting the characters all over again. Instead of the characters being portrayed as wealthy Italians the narrator portrayed them as blue collar Americans....very disappointed.

    "Great Series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the fifth book in The Andrades series written by Ruth Cardello and narrated by Robin Rowan. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. Gigi was raised outside the Andrade clan, but it has left her with an ache she cannot deny. When she's invited to her brothers' weddings, she refuses at first, then changes her mind and attends without telling anyone. She won't let herself love them, but she can't stay away. It's a recipe for disappointment and heartbreak...especially when she throws herself at her brother's best friend, Kane. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.
    The narrator Robin Rowan did a great job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting. I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
    If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    "Another Ruth Cardello success"

    I just love the Andrades!! Ruth doesn't disappoint with Gigi's story. There is such chemistry between Kane and Gigi! And I liked how the family was all brought together! This book keeps you interested from the very first! The narration was good! Very easy to listen to and didn't want to stop until I finished!

    "Book was amazing, narrator no so much"

    After listening to the other books in this series being narrated by a different, amazing narrator, this other person just threw it all off. She changed the tone of the characters in the book. Some of the voices she gave to the characters we like she hadn't read the previous books before to get a feel of who they are and what they should sound like. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the book but the new narrator dos throw me off.

    "Thumbs down narration"

    I love this book it's a great store, (I read it first)but the narration sounds like some bad off broad way flop. The male voices sound so awful one could assume this was some joke to see who sound more corny than the other. The Italian voice seem from the hills of Virginia .If Annalise was from Scotland I most be from outer space. I have never heard such a terrible narration I could not finish the book. I listen to all of this series and the narration was great. This one needs a voice over .

    "Loving Gigi"

    This book was a fun escape. There was a lot of humor and good emotion from the characters. It included characters from other books in the series.
    Gigi's feeling from her childhood were a good example of what many of the readers have experienced. I enjoyed their courtship & not the jumping into sex and falling in love.
