Publisher's Summary

Every woman knows an Adam. He's a "player", the type who professes true love, but with eyes that never stop wandering. He always has the perfect excuse when you find that long strand of blonde hair stuck to his collar, and fidgets whenever you get near his computer. Adam can't fool Bethany, who, despite her better judgment, falls head over heels for him. Bethany is far more intelligent and strong-willed than Adam bargains for, and he finds himself smitten, too. Hilarious at times and poignant at others, Secrets of the Elusive Lover explores the age-old challenge of obtaining the unattainable man, and the paradoxical issues surrounding monogamous relationships. As you listen to see if Adam and Bethany will ultimately get together, you will find this book another truly pause-resisting Mike Wells read.

    Story
    "New Age Playboy! Great Listen!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would..it is a good story, and even if you want to hate Adam, you will like him too!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets of the Elusive Lover: The Personal Journal of a Playboy (Books 1 & 2)?

    When Adam finds out Bethany has been on his computer and saw all his charts of other women...


    Which character – as performed by Mark Torres – was your favorite?

    Adam...he is likable and loath-able...at the same time..especially if you are a woman...


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

    I did laugh a few times and was a tad irritated with Adam a few times too, but you cant help but like him!


    Any additional comments?

    ** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

    I love Mikes writing, he can tell a great story and not just in one genre..his style is multifaceted...I enjoyed this story very much! This is about Adam, a 38yr old, early retired, playboy type...he sold a computer company young, and now spends his days picking up hippie chicks at a bookstore...he keeps 3 in rotation at all times..until he meets Bethany...Bethany is more than meets the eye, she is sweet, beautiful and intelligent...she is suspicious of Adam when he offers to do her chart..lol I cant help but laugh because I could see through Adams game immediately...but that is why Adam targets girls in there late teens/early twenties...as loath-able as Adam is, he is kinda lovable too...he finds himself falling for Bethany...and learning his long game is not going to work with her..and he ultimately ends up almost alone...Great Listen! Very much worth your time and a credit!

    Thank You, Audiobookblast(dot)com

    Story
    "The Life of a Die Hard Playboy"

    I have read a few of Mike Wells' books in the past. The Elusive Lover was quite a bit different from the other books of his I've read, and even though I didn't care much for the main character, it was still an interesting read. And I like Mike Wells' writing style, which always helps.

    Adam has being a player down to an art. He did surprise me at times because he genuinely didn't want to see his "girls" hurt and he definitely didn't want to cause them any pain. While I didn't care for Adam's lifestyle, I did feel sorry for him at times.

    Adam's and Bethany's characters were well developed. Poor, naive Bethany was in over her head from the beginning.

    I listened to the audiobook and the first thing I thought when the book started was that Mark Torres was a good choice. His voice is what I would imagine Adam's to sound like.

    I've decided that the ending of this book was perfect. It made the book stick with me for quite a while.

    Story
    "It's an okay read"
    What did you like best about Secrets of the Elusive Lover: The Personal Journal of a Playboy (Books 1 & 2)? What did you like least?

    Best: The narrating was great! Mark Torres did a really great job.Least: The plot was unoriginal. I predicted the story along the way.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The age difference. That one is such a turn off. The MCs have an almost 2 decades age difference. Also, I liked the story but I feel that it lacked emotion.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Torres – was your favorite?

    Definitely Cassandra.


    Was Secrets of the Elusive Lover: The Personal Journal of a Playboy (Books 1 & 2) worth the listening time?

    Yes. It was a short listening time.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending however, I did not predicted that. It really was a good read. It just wasn't great. This will be a good read/listen for someone with time to spare.
