I'm assigned to help superstar tight end, Duncan Hart, rehab his elbow. With a body that looks like a sculpted masterpiece, his chiseled features melt the hearts of women everywhere, including mine.
There's just one problem. Duncan's an asshole, with an ego the size of a football stadium. He lives for the roar of the crowd. He thrives on it. And he wants to let me experience the Hart attack - yes, he has a name for it. But that's not going to happen. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.
All's fair in love and war, and I have two choices - take him down, or let him score.
Over the Middle is a full-length romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger!

OVER THE MIDDLE has those satisfying twists and riddles we come to anticipate in Lauren Landish's books. Not as gritty but every bit as heart-warming in the romance department. I love when a real woman with a tangible body is the love interest. When most romances portray powerful, brawny men, why are they most often paired with flawless, DNA privileged women?
While the story completely absorbed me, I felt a bit cheated out of some gravy, when IMO, the story should have had more meat. Considering his arrogance portrayed at the opening, Duncan's hasty devotion didn't have a strong enough motive. Yes, she was curvy, a nice girl and said no, but so what? I was led to believe he was a real cocky bastard... And the few mentions of his father seemed like stolen instances from a different story. Neither of those two points however, weakened the main points of the story, which was well written and cohesive.
The narration was acceptable. I heard a slight lisp in her voice that I eventually phased out. The male voices sounded disdainful. But her interpretation was professional with good modulation and rhythm.
Worth TWO THUMBS.

Duncan is a talented football player who is arrogant, sluttish, obnoxious, and an a-hole. It is extremely hard to find anything redeeming about him in the beginning of the story. I'm amazed that I actually liked him at the end and here's him on.
Carrie is a student trainer that is matched with Duncan to help him learn to work...and she actually is the reason he becomes a
good guy. It does not happen immediately but he recognizes her as a person of value. I liked the way the story progressed. There is some angst but not to make me uncomfortable, which I hate...this was perfect. I liked hearing of a family from a previous book...that was fun.
The narrator....well Carrie voice fit her perfectly, young and sweet...really liked it. Hated Duncan's voice...disliked him just for his voice...if that is what the narrator was going for it worked...nasally, snotty, and just plain irritating. I got a little use to it...but really hated the voice she used for Duncan.
Definitely worth the listen.
I really didn't enjoy the audiobook very much I`m afraid, I found Duncan`s voice and even Carrie`s at times very annoying. I`m aware that Duncan was a total a** but for me it was just a little much, Carrie`s voice wasn't ideal for a college student in my opinion either. Story was OK but honestly, I would lose focus due to the narrative.I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
enjoyed the way Duncan changed from cocky to a romantic.
Loved how strong Carrie was, she made the book.
Emma bring the book to life, she make is very enjoyable to listen.
This was a really cute college romance book. I enjoyed Duncan and Carrie's journey that led to their HEA. Narrator did an ok job.

Perfect story for an afternoon of tasks that invole my hands. My family was wondering what I was laughing at!. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Blogger who just got into listening to books and now I'm addicted!! I love listening to someone bring a book to life!
I think one of the most memorable moments would be when Cassie walks away from Duncan, making him realize he has to chance his playboy ways or lose one of the most precious things he has ever had.
Casey is my favorite. She's so strong and goes for what she wants no matter what.
I loved loved loved this book. The characters are so relatable. Casey is the girl you want my your side and can be best friends with. Duncan, well, he is the one that will sneak in and steal your heart. The storyline is compelling and extremely catching. I greatly enjoyed this book and look forward to listening to more from this author and narrator!
I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.
it was a little hard to listen to because of the narrator's male voices. I know I've listened to her before but I just can't place it. I did like the story though. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Avid listener while doing everything from chasing after my toddler to running errands. Fan of all Romance, PRN & fantasy, mystery thrillers.
Cocky turns sweety
I think Duncan revealing his life, and seeing his vulnerable side.
The narrator was horrible at the male voices. If she never altered her voice for them I would have preferred it over the exaggerated and nasally overly done way they come off. Her normal voice narration when performing female characters was much better.
I felt for the characters in this story, but I fear my reactions may have been dulled because the narration wasn't as well performed for some parts and it too away from the story for me.
I really enjoyed the way Carrie takes Duncan to task all through the story. They have a great character chemistry and I enjoyed their volley back and forth. I liked seeing the softer side of things as well. I am a huge audiobook advocate so it pains me to say this but some might get a better experience for this book by simply reading it, because the narration can be off putting to some.

I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I received this audiobook for free for an honest review. I thought the college romance between Carrie and Duncan was cute. It's been many years since I was in school, but I'm sure there are people like these two running around. The arrogance of Duncan comes out as an insecurity when his life is revealed. Carrie gives him a run for his money. Emma Lysy is not one of my favorite narrators, but she is bearable. I may read more of Lauren Landish's books, but I didn't love this one, probably because of the narrator. The story was entertaining.
