This is 7 months book 7 in the Time For Love Series. I wasn’t completely excited about the narrator but the overall story was great. The friends and family found in this story are wonderful. Ming and Brady are perfect for each other. I really would have loved to see more of Ming’s parents. But Brady’s brothers are amazing and I love their family.

They’re not quite enemies, and not really friends. More like frustrated balls of sexual tension, Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, and takes cupcakes from the corner of her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a coincidence. Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin, too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and, seeing the librarian in skirts, drives him wild. She won’t give in.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to a friend who likes romance, heartbreak and drama.

What other book might you compare Carry Me Home to and why?

Can't think of any at this time.

Which character – as performed by Maria Marquis – was your favorite?

I didn't really have a favorite, I liked Lucy, Ruth and Mom, even Mendoza and Gabe. My heart broke for them all.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

When I started this book, it took me a bit to get into, not because of the narrator or the story but my own personal feelings. However when I did get into it, I wanted to finish it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

there are issues in this book that may be harder for some to handle such as rape, drugs and violence, But there is also a wonderful part of family and growth.

School psychologists aren't supposed to write books about sex. Doing so would be considered "unethical" and "a fireable offense." Lucky for you, ethics was never my strong suit. After spending years trying to spice up my sex life, I gave up and took to my journal. Perhaps my gorgeous, cold, number-crunching husband simply wasn't capable of the kind of passion I'd come to expect.

I think this audio book ranks on the better/best side out of the ones I've listened to. The narrator really brought out the story and characters in this book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character by far of course would be BB. But if I had to choose 1 of the 4 men I would choose Ken.

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh my gosh there are so many favorite scenes, and I don't want to give away any spoilers, So I'll just say you need to listen to this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, this is definitely a book I wanted to finish in one sitting. Especially to listen to it with the hubby sitting with me.

Any additional comments?

This story was hilarious and the characters were amazing. The narrator did an amazing job.

Any additional comments?

I listened to this story in audio form. Narrators Brenna Larsen and Andrew Russell bring these characters to life in this Short story with a second chance at love. Reunited high school sweethearts Tracy and Stephen have lived their own lives and have become successful in their own right. She’s at the top of her career and married and he’s leveled out and looking for his muse. My favorite character is Stephen, I would love to see these characters get a full story, either what happen in they’re time apart or of what happens after this story.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he's sowed his last wild oat. Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London's sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other's throats.
