I enjoyed it. And I enjoyed the narrator, as well. I read in the reviews she mispronounced Calbow. She must have re-recorded. The story was easy and sweet. A bit predictable but the ending was sweet.

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times - but Ellie Hammond's willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him? Sexy. As. Hell. And Ellie's perky enough for both of them. For years she's had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard - but she doesn't think he ever saw her, not really.

I love this story. The narrator is rely good with a gentle voice that fits the story. The characters are so 3D a well thought out. The story is sad but so wonderfully inspiring and really gives honest vantage points from all characters. It's hard to write more without giving anything away, but.... READ!!

The story was pretty good but it was Anna who slam dunked it. Since I've only begun reading Ms. Phillips's books the last few years, I have not gotten to the stories read by other narrators. I miss her already....

All in all it was a good story with likable characters. SEP's writing is always very vivid and although sometimes predictable, it's never disappointing.

My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton's playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.

The beautiful young widow of the president of the United States thought she was free of the White House, but circumstances have forced her back into the role of First Lady. She's made up her mind to escape, if only for a few days, so she can live the life of an ordinary person. An entire nation is searching for her, but the First Lady is in the last place anyone would think to look: in the company of a seductive stranger whose charm and good looks are awakening the forgotten woman within.

When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change. Or maybe not. Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: Anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

I love that Hoover's characters are flawed. Always a great start for a love story. It was a very sweet story and I loved how she sewed in Maybe Someday which was even more awesome. :)
