Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy - until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.

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

Unfortunately since the narration sounded like a middle school girl for all the characters, I did not enjoy spending the time listening.

Would you recommend Ride Steady to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend the book in non-audio format. KA went with younger characters who were fairly interesting.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

See above. I am absolutely furious a KA book was handled so poorly by a lousy narrator (there were no male voices, just screeching little girl voices). Especially since there are excellent narrators out there (as for her Colorado Mountain Men series).

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Maybe.

Any additional comments?

Is KA forced to accept whoever the publisher hires for narration? Truly sad if the whole series will continue with this narrator.
