He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually tense nights in hotels, and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

Generally I LOVE all the books these 2 authors write, however I feel this particular book missed the mark. I wasn't very impressed by the narration, especially the male narrator. Something just seemed a miss. I'm sure the story was great but unfortunately the narration kind of killed it for me.

They say Paris is always a good idea.... You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can't even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let's not even mention how I'll ever make it through a day at my new office. Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he's charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me.

After having listened to this book, I want to plan a trip to Paris and look for all the little landmarks from the book!
This was a sweet, romantic love story that is perfect for the hopeless romantic. The narration, especially Griffon' S narrator was phenomenal!

Tanner's acting career had just begun. He was hotter than the stage lights and twice as captivating. The gorgeous Australian A-lister was everyone's teenage dream. And he'd picked me. Or so I thought, until he proved to be as false as everything else about Hollywood. Now I've finally scored the perfect opportunity to star in a major film. The kicker? Tanner will be my costar. I don't know if I can do this one more time....

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. If I'd known then what I do now, would I have kept on walking? Manning was older, darker, experienced--and I'd trusted him when he said the story would only ever be about us. I'd held those words close and challenged fate, but I had lost. A part of me is still that sixteen-year-old girl squinting up at Manning, but no matter how far I fall or high I soar, I'll always be a bird without her bear and nothing without him.

I may or may not have cried during this 3rd book...in my office....at work. Sad tears, happy tears, anguished tears, you name it. Such a great "end" to the series. All I can say is THANK YOU Jessica Hawkins for writing a 4th Book to this amazing series! I'm not ready to be done with their story yet either! Bravo Ms Hawkins!

If I closed my eyes, I could still see them - all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake's gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany's tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly. A better man would've walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I'd keep enough distance. If I'd learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York do an excellent job bringing these characters and their story to life, however the quality of the audio was low. Perhaps it was the download on my end, but there was a good hour or 2 where SebYo narration would go from normal volume to extremely loud and then back again.

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. I was too young, he said. I would wait. But I'd learn that no matter what you achieve in life, it means nothing if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn't matter. My older sister saw him next.

I had no expectations when I bought this book on the daily deal. The story concept was interesting enough and having played games like Warcraft I decided to give it a listen. I felt the story failed to deliver, the dialog was cheesy and lame. It's too bad, I felt it had potential but not a series I will continue.
