I usually like Brenda Jackson books especially the Westmorelands. I got through the book, but it was not easy. The story was decent, but it was hard listening to this guy. I had already pre-ordered another book before I listened to this one. Not sure I want to listen to this guy again.
The book was okay, I enjoyed the development of the characters and how the story evolved when I ignored the narrator which was not an easy thing to do. This is a pretty typical Brenda Jackson book. Family, love story, professionals and same love story ending. I am truly happy Ms. Jackson is putting more of her books on audible.
I will listen to my new book and hope for the best. If you like Brenda Jackson's style you will probably like this book. Hopefully most of you won't find the narrator as bad I did.
I am still not happy with Pete Ohms' narration of this book - he was better than the last one I listened to, Together Forever. I am sure the book ver..Show More »sion is much in better cases. The content was not the problem. This book was engaging and it kept my interest. If you didn't know who the author was you would know by the content, Brenda Jackson. I know some people don't like predictable stories but they don't bother me because I read to get away, and for pure enjoyment. This book did both.
This was a short book and it has me looking for more of Ms. Jackson's books of other families. This book is her usual formula with the two characters finding their way to each other, but she did it in an interesting way. It has sex, and drama woven together. Unbelievable in the real world, but this is fiction.
I had been waiting for Ms. Jackson to come out with more books on audible and she has and I am very happy. I hope she finds a better narrator and keep them coming.
This is a good book but the audio version is bordering on bad. It is so-so. What happened to Shari Peele, she did a great job on your audio books. T..Show More »his guy Pete is ruining your audio versions. He is getting better, but don't let him practice on your books. I am so excited you have done the Madaris family on audible, but he ruined the experience for me. He does some of the voices OK, but overall it is just not good.
The book is typical Brenda Jackson, which I enjoy most of her books. Dex finally learns the truth about his an ex-wife, well the wife he thought was his ex-wife: the divorce, and that he has a daughter. Dex had pretty much given up on love and marriage. The betrayal, he thought had turned him into another person. One that would not allow him to fall in love again. After the death of Caitlin's father and the truth is revealed, his love is restored, and he is once again able to be the man he was before. It's a good book to get you away for a few hours. It is not intense, just a calm book. I admit it I am easy to please if I can walk away with a smile. I don't read a straight up romance if I want suspense and a lot of drama. If you are looking for just a romance book then you should enjoy this one. It has some twist and turns and a hit of drama, BUT Pete is not high on the narrator scale. I truly hope he gets better I would hate to stop buying Ms. Jackson's book because of him.

I am trying to digest it and get through it because it really is a great story Clayton and Syneda are super hot. Good luck getting through the story that is only reason I gave it a 3 overall. Happy Listening.
I read this book some time ago and was excited it finally made audio. The book version is better. Although Pete Ohms is getting better he is still n..Show More »ot there yet. He ruined the book for me. If I had not already known the story I would have been totally disappointed. The books that were narrated by others are much better. I have continued to buy the books hoping they will get better. I have been so excited the Madaris series is on audible. I might try again, but at some point I will have to let it go. I can't continue to buy the series and dislike the narrator.
The story is fairly cute started out as a business venture and the two people ended up actually falling in love. The story is well develop and you do fall in love with the characters. This book has been around for a while but still a good one. Short and sweet.
The storyline alone was great. The passion bewteen the main charactors was intense. However Brenda passed over opportunities to make the story more ex..Show More »citing in at least two cases..maybe more. The father daughter angle, Diamond and her ex-husband, the search for the camera man, Dex's ex-wife. Dont want to give too much away but Imagine a crime show where they caught the suspect without a chase all the time. I'd sit back ready for the ride and then sat up straight like what the what? lol Pete is a great narrator over all but his voice needs more fluctuation at times; not just a breathy falsetto.

I'm a easy sale on the fantasy story stuff but even that one gave me whiplash. I does contain some pretty intense sexual chemistry. For some reason though this one seems to lack something. This one is just ok for me and I don't think it's one I'd advise someone to use a credit on. It's a good "on-sale" book. On the plus side the narrator sure has a sexy voice.
