Julia London branches out into the Contemporary genre from her usual Historical romances and the result is a light refreshing feel-good listen. ..Show More »r/>It was a fun listen too as Eli tries to make a success of her new wedding planning business whilst being employed and drawn to the handsome and all too capable hunk Marnie who is a member of an extreme sports junky group called Thrillseekers Anonymous but he's been burned by love before and tries to keep away. However, she is funny, sassy, sexy and lovely and, as disaster strikes, he has a hard time resisting her, and of course, in the end he gives in to temptation (not too graphic).
Worth a credit? It's an easy going, light romance with nice characters and for $7.95 for nearly 12 hours it's a bargain. I wouldn't use a credit I'd just buy it and save my credit for a pricier listen.
I'm enjoying Julia London's venture into the Contemporary Romance scene and this series is a nice change.
Michael (much more than just a hand..Show More »some playboy) gets cold feet after his long. happy and loving relationship with Leah when it gets too serious so he unceremoniously dumps her but there's secrets in his life that she doesn't know about. Leah is quite devastated and it ruins her life for quite a while. Zoom ahead 5 years, he's now part of the Thrill Seekers Anonymous Group and they meet again, have to work together and he tells her everything including the fact that he's never gotten over her. But she's in a different place in her life now so can she emotionally afford to let him in or let him go.
A nice up and down love story with a few twists, a kidnapping, romantic, sad, funny, sexy, great characters but, above all, it was an entertaining and very enjoyable story.
Worth a credit? Definitely..... and I'm happily about to download Book 3 now.
A 'WHO CARES' LISTEN IT FAILED TO KEEP MY INTEREST
I can't believe it - I really liked the previous 2 books in this series, and usually love JL's books, but this one seemed to go on and on and on about..Show More » irrelevant insignificant things that I found myself skipping over bits and even when I did it was just the same thing under different circumstances.
The main female character - Audrey - was a superstar but was just so wimpy and weak letting everyone tell her what to do and she couldn't decide the who, what, when and how's of her life that I couldn't imagine any of today's superstars being that way - so strike 1 -dislikable unbelievable heroine.
The storyline was ok but it just lasted way too long (it should have been a 6 hr book) but it was filled with uninteresting details and had quite a depressing storyline - so strike 2 -length.
One of the subplots was that she was getting death threats accompanied by gifts from a mystery villain but the identity was given to the listener early on and their was no big build up in finding out who it was and the eventual capture of the person was dull - so strike 3 - no excitement.
Had this of been a 6 hr book then I probably may have enjoyed it more as there were fun, romance and enjoyable parts but unfortunately most of the characters were dislikable, apart from Jack of course, but a book cannot stand on a handsome fit hunk's shoulders alone (no matter how broad) as even he needs some help.
Worth a credit? It falls under my $10 rule so I bought it - but not worth a credit or $10 however if it was in one of Audible's sales then perhaps.
