I really loved this book, but I couldn't give five stars in the "OVERALL", and "STORY category , because of the weird format that the past was Written in I didn't like it, and it had me saying get on with the present. I'm all for finding ones self, correcting past mistakes, and family reunions. Please click the thumbs up if this little review has helped you any.

There’s a thin line between hate and tolerance, and it seems to sit squarely between us. Lola Bell could easily bring an army of men to their knees, as long as she never opened her mouth. She’s soft in too many ways. A people-pleaser who goes the extra mile. Some might call her an easy target. In short, she has all of the qualities that I despise. But when it comes to me, she doesn’t hesitate to fling her poison arrows my way. She has every right to her feelings. Over the years, I’ve given her plenty of ammo. Yeah, I hate Lola. But it doesn’t stop me from wanting her too. When she makes me a proposition I can’t refuse, there’s just one problem.

This is one of the most frustrating books ever. I had to force myself to finish it , but the narrators did a fantastic job. I just don’t like when the characters act so stupid, and the stupidity goes on for years.

I don't think his parents expected him to live up to his name - Racer Tate - but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted. He's the fastest, fiercest driver around. Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...but his smile sends me to my knees. The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....

When I met him, he was just a gray-eyed stranger behind a mask. He turned my head when no one else did, and he upped the ante by showing me what I'd been missing when our tongues met for the first time. When I got to know him, he was still a stranger on the other end of the phone. He made my toes curl and my knees weak with his dirty words and dirtier suggestions. I was his wild ace, and he knew how to play me just right so that we both won.

The narrators did an excellent job on this book, but I didn't like how the heroine would get upset with the hero, and wouldn't let him explain/defend himself. She was a little too mean to him for me. WARNING! The beginning of the book was hard for me to listen/deal with abuse isn't easy for anyone to deal with, but I think that it's hardest for children who are in that situation.

Haven MacKay has no idea that time is fleeting. Dressed in Scottish period costume, she volunteers at a historical village at the present day New England Highland Games. She gets more than she bargains for when her love spell goes awry. After searching for true love, someone honest and open, she meets a mysterious, sword-wielding warrior who fades into the mist. Not a woman destined to give up easily, she tries her spell again and is accidently cast back in time.

Loved the accents, and LOVED LOVED LOVED THE NARRATOR, but didn't like the back, and forth of the heroines time traveling from her time to his time. It took too long for them to get together in his time for me. This isn't my first rodeo with time traveling highlander romance books, but this one had too to many now she's here, than she's not here for me. I just didn't have the patience for it. I like books that gets straight to the point, and fast.

Who gets paid to walk a dog and recline by the pool all day? Sydney Montgomery, aspiring museum curator and professional house-sitter, that's who. When her aunt and uncle need a house and dog sitter for 30 days in Palo Alto, Sydney can't turn down the chance to be closer to her sister in L.A. Within 24 hours of her arrival, Sydney's cleaning up runny dog poo, taking an uncooperative pooch to a handsome yet awkward vet, and being rescued from the bottom of the pool by a naked "pool guy."

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

Yes and no, because the heroine in the beginning came across as a good person, but wasn't at all.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would've stayed lite, and funny which worked in the beginning *****SPOILER ALERT****** I wouldn't have had the hero, and the heroine CHEATING on their FINANCES with each other or CHEATING period, and the excuses she came up with for not telling him about his child was DISGUSTING. The way she hurt both men who weren't innocent themselves, but she hurt them more, and everything in between was so very DISGUSTING. By the end I wanted both men to be with someone else anyone else hell even Claire being the B*tch that she was would've been better for Lautner then Sydney I don't know who would've been right for Dane maybe Sydney's sister? Idk maybe or maybe not on his assistant at the vet clinic, BUT NOT SYDNEY idk why these men wanted her. We always seem want what's not good for us. This sweet, but not so innocent man ( Lautner ) told dumb ASS Sydney that he loved her so many times that I found myself screaming at the top of my lungs "STOP TELLING THIS STUPID ASS B*TCH that you love her she's TOO f**king dumb to say it back. She acted like she'd never said the words I love you before in her life. I'm so over this book. But out of all that happened she still got her HEA (Happily Ever After) after all which she shouldn't have, because I feel as if Sydney still had a lot of growing up to do.

What does Tracy Marks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings everything to the books that she narrates. Tracey also does a fantastic job also on A. Zavarelli books with the different accents. She is one of my favorites.

Did Undeniably You inspire you to do anything?

Yeah to do more in depth research on Goodreads for future books, because I wouldn't have gotten this book no matter favorite narrator or not.

Any additional comments?

The book started out fun, lite, and easy to listen to, but later in the book it goes in a different direction with a lot of drama, Lying, Deceit and Cheating. I thought that I got a romantic book, but the heroine in this book is so F***ing STUPID that so many times I found my hands in closed fist, or pulling at my hair. Sydney acted like she didn't have any type of sense. So if you like dumb ass females, or being frustrated, angry , and oh yeah CHEATERS than this is the book for you have at it. I wish someone would've written a review like this letting people know about this book then I could've saved my credit. The only reason why I purchased this book was , because of the narrator Tracey Marks is so Amazing she brought this book to life, but the drama, and stupidity was way too much for me.

Ford Aston is not too picky about what he wants out of Christmas. He's not into this holiday - like at all. He doesn't do presents or family dinners or parties or church. He does pets. And he's got one lined up for Christmas Eve. In fact it's the highlight of his day. And if he can get through drop-in visits, nosy 12-year-olds, an inappropriate conversation with his best friend's girlfriend, dinner with a family that's not his, and a party at his mother's house - well, he might just get home in time to enjoy himself with a stranger and make it all okay.

This book in my opinion is the best in the series. Ford completely surprised me with his kindness, and understanding. A complete turn around from the person we have come to know him to be which warmed my heart. (SPOILER ALERT) I Think the best books are the ones with a single mother with an infant or small children who without looking finds help, and love.

Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man; I never claimed to be anything else. I've done things I'm not proud of, seen things that can't be unseen. I've caused pain that I can't undo. It was all my choice. Every decision. Every order. Right and wrong never mattered. Until her. She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.

This book had me angry at times, and sad the rest. IF you are emotionally weak than this isn't for you. I struggled to finish this book with hope that it would get better for Lexy, but it didn't. I kept wishing that she'd get her happy ending. Some relationships are not good for you.When you suffer heart break after heart break, and you're treated like sh*t, but I'm glad I stuck with it, because life for some people gets better.

When going to war, there are three very simple rules one must abide by: know thy enemy, be prepared to sacrifice, and always wear good shoes. After all, revenge is a dish best served in stilettos. I've got an eye for it, and nothing's going to stand in my way. Not even Rory "The Saint" Brodrick.

I love this Author which is one of my favorites. The first 3 books in this series I totally loved, but this one didn't hold up to the first 3. Scarlett played too many games with Rory for me. Speaking of Rory I loved his character, and the accent is to die for.

I purchased this book back in 2013, and have listened, and enjoyed it many times. I don't know why there's so many bad reviews about the narrator, to me she's perfect for this book bringing the characters to life. There are so many horrific narrators out there killing the hell out of books, but Mary Kowal isn't one of them.
