Did either of you review this book before it was published? I refuse to believe that either of you wrote it and it was written by your ghost writers. The entire book dealt with the insecurities of this seemingly intelligent hermit, who did nothing to seek the help of experts. Every chapter dealt with the same on going issues of the female character. You could literally skip chapters and it’s the same whining issues from the previous chapters. There is nothing ingratiating or like able of any of the characters. Don’t waste your money. Penny Reid is better than this. I don’t know about Cosway. What happened? Don’t waste your money.

Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn't see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman...who wants to crush the most intimate - and prized - parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Louboutins. When Kennedy looks at Brent, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue-worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school in order to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell for her.

I liked the other stories in this series. This one lacked a good plot. Too much concentration on misunderstandings. For heavens sake they were supposed to be from these elite families at these elite schools and they can’t manage to use their words? I kept thinking the story was going to move past that, but it took until the end for it to pick up pace. The biggest travesty however was the reader. He sounded like a 80 year old man that is trying to ‘woo’ a 20 year old woman. It wasn’t appealing at all. You seriously better count on fast forwarding through the intimate sections because it was just too painful to listen to, so whomever wrote those sections, I apologize because I just couldn’t bare listening to them, it just sounded so wrong. Get a better reader please for your future books. The guy from the previous book in this series was outstanding!

She's set her sights on becoming a veterinarian, but there's one teeny tiny road bump. Her living arrangements are coming to an abrupt end, leaving Josey homeless and in need of a job.

It was hard to listen to the male voice if Josh, whoever did the reading was terrible. He sounded like an 80 year old man. When he tried to read the female voice of other characters it was cringe worthy!

A fabulously fun, romantic comedy from a dynamic new talent. Nothing fazes Taylor Donovan - not in the courtroom and not in her personal life. So when she’s assigned to coach People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” for his role in the next big legal drama, she refuses to fall for the Hollywood heartthrob’s charms. Even if he is the Jason Andrews.

This had to be written by your PG 13 ghost writer. So many things were wrong. Supposedly a tough hard as nails female attorney, with 3 brothers and a cheating ex-fiancé. Does not fall for the big time movie star’s BS, but instead falls for the second tier one. What happened to her moxy and intuitiveness? Additionally, the voice was killing me. I admittedly got so bored I skipped chapters. Don’t buy this. I wish I hadn’t. This shouldn’t be in the category of romance, but just a stupid story

The narrator’s voice sounded like a 90 year old man, making his declaration of love and any passionate scene sound very odd, unlikely and gross. His women’s voices sounded very masculine. Please take the time to find the right peron

Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming 19th-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix - fresh from a romantic breakup - but for reasons of her own, Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding.

I wonder if the authors actually listen to the person doing the reading, seriously. She reads the main characters voice as if she’s constantly whining. I tried so hard to listen to this. Made it to chapter 7. I did a pre-view and thought the portion they played was just the characters voice in that particular scene, it wasn’t. Please tell me she’s not reading the other 2 books. It was so irritating that I couldn’t even get into the book. I tried fast forwarding through her whining to just listen to the other characters voices which were fine. Unfortunately she’s the main character!
