story was well written, and characters were believable staying in character through entire book. reasons for not falling in love believable and held for a believable amount of the book. Narrator was wonderful as well!
waiting for word from boating accident as well as giving Luke back to his mother.
loved her voice, inflections, character changes, all of it. Put several books she's narrated into my wish list
laughed, cried, held my breath. Couldn't get enough
Listening for the second time right now!!!
The book started out a little strange and did not have much hope, but as it progressed it was entertaining.
Ella Varner is an advice columnist, lives in Austin, Texas with her vegan boyfriend Dane and seems very happy with her life and relationship as is. All changes will change with a call from Mommy Dearest beckoning her to Huston to deal with Ella's younger sister, Tara and her new baby, Luke. Mommy Dearest wants nothing to do with a baby Luke and forces Ella take the baby. Now Ella’s life is filled with bottles, diapers, little sleep and a boyfriend that does not want a baby to interrupt his life. Trying to locate the father of the baby, Jack Travis name comes up as a potential possibility. Willing to take a paternity suit we find out from Tara he is not the dad leaving the door wide open for Ella and Jack.
Emily Durante did a decent job narrating the books – I thought her accent was appropriate for a Texas base book.
I love science fiction. I love the reluctant hero. Characters that try to do the right thing no matter what.
It was so predictable and smooth....
Didn't really like her voice or her characters.
Not Lisa's best effort...her historicals are better.
I have enjoyed every book by Lisa Kleypas but this story was completely ruined by the narrator.
I loved this storyline and the other two books in the series were great too. I give the story 5 stars .... the narrator gets 1 stars. Her accent was fake and forced compared to the other two narrated books. I wouldn't waste your money on the audible book. Buy the book and read it... I did and enjoyed it much more than the audible version..
Pretty standard romance story. Kind of predictable, but the likable factor of the main characters makes up for that. Good narration.
Normally I rate Kleypas novels very high. This one disappointed me some. For one thing, I was not happy with the narration. It just wasn't as good as I think someone else might have been with the accents
The story disappointed because the characters weren't all very realistic. Ella supposedly had overcome a really destructive childhood, but struck me as being a pathetic and willing victim of her mother and sister and boyfriend. When she turns from that particular boyfriend to one who is a major Alpha male, the switch isn't realistic. .
The plot itself could have been better played out in my opinion. Of course it is only my opinion.
