This is a longtime fave that I’m grateful is finally available in audiobook format.

The narration is great. She’s quite capable and pleasant to listen to.

That said, it was recorded in a terrible environment. In some chapters the listener can hear what sounds like cicadas in the background. Did she narrate it in her patio?

The narrator also doesn’t edit out long pauses and unpleasant throat clearing and clicking, especially when changing between characters. It’s quite disgusting to have piped into your earbuds. The pauses slow down the scenes that are intended to be fast and breathless to something awkward. The writing deserves better.

Coach Love, second book in Liz Crowe's Love Brothers series, picks up where Love Garage leaves off. Kieran Love, back home after a Joe Theismann-level injury in the NBA, must come to terms with all of his past's frustrations before he can move forward with his life. An ex-girlfriend, career disappointments and discoveries, family strife, and the hope that it's all going to work itself out move this tale of redemption forward. Life in Lucasville, KY is never simple, but the ride is always worth the price of admission.

What made the experience of listening to Love Garage the most enjoyable?

As a longtime fan of Crowe's Stewart Realty saga and Black Jack Gentlemen series, I couldn't wait to jump into the Love Brothers series. The narration is flawless. The characters are compelling. The covers are gorgeous. It's the whole package and I think every note has been hit squarely for the series. Bravo!

What did you like best about this story?

Liz Crowe is the queen of Relationship Fiction. The messy lives of the Love family and their cast of supporting characters are the real deal. Often reminding you of characters from your past or your own family at times, identifying with and loving the Loves will leave you wanting more. Like a good Kentucky bourbon, it satisfies, burns, and makes you want to reach for more.

Have you listened to any of Daniel Dorse’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first experience with Mr. Dorse's narration. It won't be the last. He is divine.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just extreme joy at the chance to break in a new Liz Crowe series.

Any additional comments?

Give this series a chance to win you over. You won't be sorry.
