Any additional comments?

Sam Crowley was great otherwise, but did the story a disservice with the bad pronunciation. Each mispronunciation of a Hawaiian word/name detracted from the story.

There are a few unbreakable rules in the game. Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics. The heart is impulsive. The heart makes bad decisions. The heart doesn't see the long game. The heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart's going to be the one to break.

This duet should have been one book.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. So much of Diana's internal thoughts could have been eliminated as they were repeated in her dialog with Adam or in her actions. During Diana's portion of the book, I really felt like I wasted a credit.

If I heard of a friend that really wanted to start this series, I would recommend that she start in the middle of the book. The first half was a waste of time.

What could CD Reiss have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make this duet one book. It really felt like the author milked the story to make it into two books, therefore getting more $$ from the customer.

Did Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Both Elena and Sebastian did an outstanding job. Sebastian's performance saved the series for me.

Was Separation Games worth the listening time?

No. This is the problem with series going over one book. I'm thankful I started Marriage Games, shortly before Separation Games was available. I didn't have to wait long for the 2nd part of the series.

When Maddy Thorne agreed to marry her billionaire boss in order to keep him in the country, she never would have guessed they'd actually stay together. But over a year later, she's still happily married to the slightly eccentric, maddeningly attractive Daniel. As he begins to come out of his shell and turn into the figurehead that his growing technology company needs, Maddy finds herself dealing with a whole new set of problems.

What did you like best about I Married a Billionaire: Lost and Found? What did you like least?

I was looking forward to listening to the next installment of Maddie's and Daniel's story. The sound quality of this recording was bad. It sounded like this was recorded in someone's bathroom or under a tin can. To make matters worse, the narrator's interpretation of Daniel's voice was wooden and seemed to lack any depth.
