I love this book! I've never read Kristen's books before and I'm hooked. love the story line. There are many memorable moments, one that stuck was Lauren's birthday surprise. I especially love the "chick" and "dick" house rules. very entertaining storyline. Emma did a decent job narrating.. In my opinion, when you have a awesome storyline with a biker dude as the leading man, get a real sexy voice like Sebastian York to read the male scenes. (I have a vivid imagination :-) )

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

i struggle with the beginning of this book. However, by chapter 10 the storyline morphed into enlightenment and i could't stop listening. i love the small town vibe. everyone looking out for each other. i love the kids and their lives being part of the story. i could have done with all the explicives.

Overall a very good read. ill definately read more of Kristen's book. iM not a fan of the narrator's voice.

love the characters.
Some the best moments were, when she shot him, then sued him for defamation of character. I was driving while listening to this chapter. I was laughing so loudly, i'm sure the person in the car next to me though I was nuts.
This is a historic romance book for the library.

Narrator was able to give voice to each character.

It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. Some of the scene were to gruesome for my taste. They were also drawn out too much for impact.

What other book might you compare Smash Cut to and why?

James Patterson's Swimsuit novel about a swimsuit model who was kidnapped. Listened one chapter of that book and returned it to the library.

What about Victor Slezak’s performance did you like?

Mr Slezak has a very expressive voice.

Could you see Smash Cut being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

A TV movie. A Brad Pitt look may portray the main character
