Publisher's Summary

Fallon has had a long and rough couple of years. She's ready now to work on putting the past behind her and focus on putting her life back together. A trip to see her best friend to hang out and create some new happy memories seems just the way to start off her new life. However, the first person she meets is Reid Snow, who threatens her peace of mind. Fallon does everything to resist his bad boy charm. The last thing she needs is someone else bringing drama into her life. But, when tragedy strikes Reid is the one who she turns to.

Reid Snow has gone from an unknown to a well-known. He never had a problem in the female department until he's taken in by a gold digger who is after more than just his good looks. Before becoming a well-known actor, women always wanted him for himself. Determined not to be suckered again, he finds himself extremely attracted to his the best friend of his best friend's sister. The only problem is, he's not interested in anything more than casual hook-ups. But, even if Fallon would give him the time of day, which she doesn't seem inclined to do, starting something with her could jeopardize his friendship with his best friend.

    "Reluctant"

    This was a sweet and sad contemporary story. It's funny how Fallon pushes everyone away, but the ones closest to won't budge. But the over baring friends do get a bit annoying. I like that Reid was so determined to be by her side no matter what. I also loved the authors personal note at the end! Great narration!

    "Sweet story!"

    I love a story where I can laugh as well as cry and this story did it for me. The characters are real and Jaime Lamchick did a great job as narrator. Will look for other books written by Maria Josephs and also others that are narrated by Jaime Lamchick.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. I find the author's writing style to be very engaging. The depth of the characters personalities make them very relatable.


    What other book might you compare Reluctant to and why?

    I would compare the book Alexander Ranch, because it is written by the same author. Her writing style is very incomparable to another. She engages and connects you to the characters depicted in her novels.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In the introduction where the main character, Fallon is dealing with the emotional loss of her father is so well written. Her emotions are so raw and real, that you can feel how she is feeling. You can see yourself in her shoes, right in the beginning you connect with her.

    Story
    "Reluctant"

    this is a story about Fallon and Reid.

    Fallon goes to Alexa's house to get some work done. She interrupts a man, Reid, and a woman on the table at Alexa's house, where nobody was supposed to be.

    Reid is an actor that is best friends with Nick, Alexa's brother. He was supposed to greet Fallon at Alexa's house, but he didn't know she was going to be early.

    Fallon doesn't like Reid, but he keeps going over and bothering her that he grows on her. They start hanging out and reside to become "buddies" because he "didn't have time for a relationship".


    The story is pretty fantastic, and I enjoyed it immensely! Marla Josephs is an awesome author, and the narrator, Jamie Lamchick, is amazing! I hope to be able to both read and listen to their books in the future.

    I received a free copy for an honest review, which I have given, by either the author, narrator, or publisher via Audiobookblast·com

    Story
    "A beautiful romance"

    --I was given this audiobook in return for an honest review.

    I loved this book. A sweet romance, real life situations and good friends. The circumstance of Reid and Fallon's initial meeting just makes you laugh...and think of Reid as a total Playboy. But as the story unfolds and you find the depth of the man, the sadness Fallon carries, the way their relationship evolves, you can't help but love them both. I was extremely impressed with way Reid dealt with Fallon's scare, standing by her side through thick and thin. This book had some meat to it, making it not a fluffy romance, creating an enjoyable listen.

    The narrator, Jamie Lamchick, did an outstanding job. This was the first book I have heard her do and she made the characters real and believable.

    Story
    "Deep, Heart-felt Story!"
    Would you listen to Reluctant again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to Reluctant again because the Author had you right there living this story. It was as if I could feel and see everything! She made her characters really realistic and the story held very little "fluff". A good, solid read. I couldn't put it down!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reluctant?

    One of the most memorable moments of Reluctant for me was the moment Fallon realized she was in love with Reed. It was outrageously romantic.


    What does Jaime Lamchick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jaime Lamchick made every character come to life for me. She was able to change her voice to match each one. She is very talented.


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

    This book made me laugh and cry at times. It is such a sweet love story but at the same time it tells of heart-breaking crisis almost one after the other.


    Any additional comments?

    The fact that this author has actually gone through the sadness she portrayed in the story broke my heart but at the same time I was so very proud of her ability to climb out of misery and grab life with gusto and triumph! Now that is a wonderful story!

    Story
    "Sometimes Love Happens When You Least Expect It"

    I loved this sweet and heartbreaking story about Fallon who’s entire world is thrown into turmoil, when her father who has been the one unshakable foundation in her life, succumbs to cancer. Fallon is such a private person that she prefers to be left alone in her grief. Her private grieving comes to an abrupt end when playboy and rising star Reid Snow unceremoniously enters her life.

    It’s fascinating to see the very public Reid worm his way into becoming a crucial part of Fallon’s very private life and the sacrifices he’s willing to make when he truly falls in love for the first time in his life.

    The audio quality of this book was above average but not perfect, the narrator Jaime Lamchick, on the other hand, was the perfect fit for this 7+ hour production.

    The author's note at the end was touching.

    This audiobook was gifted to me exchange for an unbiased review!
