Where does Taming Natasha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The audio version is better than most audio books and especially dealing with accents. The book came alive with the performance of the narrator. I was especially glad the same voice artist performed the other books in this series!

What other book might you compare Taming Natasha to and why?

I am a Nora Roberts fan (big time)... and have listened to many but the Stanislaski family comes alive and more authentic with this performer.

Which scene was your favorite?

Meeting the love interest in the toy store for the first time. The narrator brought more firey emotion to the character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Natasha told the story about her infant dying.

Any additional comments?

Lovely story as are all of the Stanislaski series!
