I'd be hard pressed to actually recommend this title. I really wanted to like it, I think the author has some talent but the character development was..Show More » pretty weak and the "conflict" that faced the H/H was lame at best. At one point I was so over the Heroine I didn't care if she got her HEA. I like the narrator a lot, which is why I decided to get the title even though I hadn't heard of the author. Xe does a great job with the various characters, and I may try another title to see if the author does a better job with the next storyline.
This was the perfect book for a weekend 'audible rendezvous'. Short, sweet, and just a bit sassy. I wanted to listen to something somewhat lightweig..Show More »ht and romantic, and this totally hit the spot. #1 Xe Sands' smoky-smooth-sultry voice is a little intoxicating so that was really enough to put me into a trance which is just what I need after a long week. The storyline is a little predictable, but, it was interesting and funny enough to keep me listening and willing to buy the next one in the series. Looking forward to the next!
If you're in love with love, this is a great series to check out. Return to You is about Olivia & Michael, two former sweethearts reunited under inte..Show More »resting circumstances orchestrated by Olivia's dad. Overall, I continue to enjoy this series, and would recommend it for lightweight listening. Although short, this story, like the others, was packed with heartwarming sappy romance and a textbook Happily Ever After. I loved it.
This series has staying power! It's your classic romance with an array of eclectic characters that will keep you coming back for more. The narration ..Show More »is exceptional, and if you don't feel all warm and fuzzy at the end of the Laurel Heights books there's no hope!
This series continues to pleasantly surprise me. Dream of You was hot, romantic and really funny. Lola and Sam are my favorite characters so far, th..Show More »eir love story was made even better with the addition of Sam's daughter Madison. The stories in this series are short and sweet, so things move along pretty quickly, plus the price is right--definitely a bargain! It's the perfect mini-escape where an HEA is pretty much guaranteed. I love it!
I love the world that Kate Perry has created in Laurel Heights, with great characters that are funny and intriguing. Sweet on You had a lot of sass--t..Show More »he main characters are 'tough cookies' - pun intended (Daniela's a BAKER!) Get it? :-) And of course the secondary story within the primary storyline was equally as good! That's what's so great about this series, you're kind of getting a two for one almost and neither leaves you lacking. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is in love with love...the path to these characters' HEA is a great journey.
My one criticism is not so much about the story content but about the fact that after books 6 & 7, there's book 10! If it's even remotely possible to get books 8 & 9 on Audible it would be awesome!
First of all, anyone named Valentine totally belongs in a story like these Kate Perry books. Tamed By You is a story of the matchmaker meeting her ma..Show More »tch. Ethan and Valentine on the surface are total opposites but are drawn together through a series of random moments that began back in book 6. I liked everything about Ethan--strong, brooding and sexy--Yum! The only negative was Valentine's mom; such a buzzkill. Also, I wouldn't have minded if the story was a little longer. Things felt rushed for the first time in the series. Despite this, I will certainly buy the next one, and the next one after that. Fingers crossed book 8 comes to Audible soon!
If you're in the mood for sweet romance, Kate Perry has that genre on lock down! I've enjoyed this series so far, and surprisingly each story has been..Show More » relatively unique. The Laurel Heights series is a great 'weekender' series; they are short one listen stories and will just whisk you away for a time. I absolutely melt for a love story that actually began years prior based on a solid friendship--this is that love story. Highly recommended for the true romantics out there!
The love story is lukewarm. Although the hero is a good guy, the heroine just rolls over and gives up then runs away because that's just the way she i..Show More »s. Yes she does overcome her shortcoming - a one time deal then will revert back to her old self - but just not enough to salvage the story. At least the back story with the sister and the sister was more interesting than the heroine.
Xe sands did a good job I think, I still think she delivers the male voices very well. I think she's the only reason I finished the book. Glad the book was free and audio was only 1.99. Unfortunately I can't get my time and effort back.
