    "Narrator ruined it for me"

    I read this book some time ago and was excited it finally made audio. The book version is better. Although Pete Ohms is getting better he is still not there yet. He ruined the book for me. If I had not already known the story I would have been totally disappointed. The books that were narrated by others are much better. I have continued to buy the books hoping they will get better. I have been so excited the Madaris series is on audible. I might try again, but at some point I will have to let it go. I can't continue to buy the series and dislike the narrator.

    The story is fairly cute started out as a business venture and the two people ended up actually falling in love. The story is well develop and you do fall in love with the characters. This book has been around for a while but still a good one. Short and sweet.

    "Awful Narration"

    I think this story was good. However, the narrator totally ruined it for me. At some points in the story, if he soke SO slow I felt like just discontinuing altogether. I like the author but I will not listen to anymore of her books narrated by Peter Ohms.

    Story
    "One of my favorites!! Until NOW!!!"

    This is one of my favorite Brenda Jackson stories! I love the Madaris Family, especially Clayton! I would tell anyone to read this book and fall in love with the story and the characters.

    However, I would not recommend the audio book! The narrator was not a good choice. He is not good at performing the female voices and it got creepy at times.

    Definitely READ the book (in fact, read ALL of her books)! It was hard to listen to the audio book.
