I really recommend reading this book, it's a good story, but I really think it would have been better with a better Narrator. Read the book...pass on the audio version.

Ambitious Daily Sentinel journalist Lauren King is chaffing on LA’s vapid social circuit, reporting on glamorous A-list parties while sparring with her rival - the formidable, icy Catherine Ayers. Ayers is an ex-Washington political correspondent who suffered a humiliating fall from grace, and her acerbic, vicious tongue keeps everyone at bay. Everyone, that is, except knockabout Iowa girl King, who is undaunted and unimpressed and gives as good as she gets.

This is a very good story...a little drama a little romance and the absolute best Narrator I have listened to. I will definitely read more by this Author...and the Narrator could read anything and make it sound sexy!

Trauma victims are not new to medical examiner Faith McIntyre, but this one is different. The unconscious woman clinging to life after a hit and run is FBI agent Macy Crow. What the woman from Quantico was doing in a dark alley after midnight is just one mystery. The other is more unsettling: Macy is Faith’s mirror image - the twin sister she never knew she had.

After being entrusted with her brother's Los Angeles apartment for the summer as a graduation gift, Emi Price isn't sure how to fulfill his one condition: that something great take place there while he's gone. Emi may be a talented young production designer, already beginning to thrive in the competitive film industry, but she still feels like an average teen, floundering when it comes to romance.

This is a very well written and narrated book. I was drawn in from the start, all the characters are so real and full of hope. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a book full of emotion and love...no sex in story...just sweet and heartfelt. Also, this Narrator is one of the best I have heard...she was perfect for this story.

Pop star Leontyne Blake might sing about love, but she stopped believing in it a long time ago. What women want is her image, not the real her. When her father has a stroke, she flees the spotlight and returns to her tiny Missouri hometown. In her childhood home, she meets small-town nurse Holly Drummond, who isn't impressed by Leo's fame at all. That isn't the only thing that makes Holly different from other women. She's also asexual. For her, dating is a minefield of expectations that she has decided to avoid.

I don't know how she does it but, I hope Ann Mcman never stops writing. I have read all her books or listened to them on Audible and have never been disappointed. I actually read this one first and found out it was on Audible and couldn't resist getting it , especially having a wonderful Narrator in Michelle Williams....it was wonderful and I am impatiently waiting for her next book. Just get it....it's a no brainer!

A prominent figure amongst New York City's fashion elite, Elena Vega is a successful businesswoman and single mother to an adorable three-year-old son, Lucas. Her love life, however, is lacking, as those closest to her keep pointing out. At the persistent urging of her closest friend, Elena reluctantly agrees to a string of blind dates if she can find a suitable babysitter for Lucas. Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University. Elena is intrigued by Allison's ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman's instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job. After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.

I just listened to this book a second time, it's a sweet story that is worth the listen/read. The Narrator does a fantastic job with the little boys voice and not bad with Elanas but Allison's voice is just to childish sounding and takes some of the enjoyment from the story.

I have read this book a couple of times on my Kindle and loved it....listened to audio sample and thought it sounded great...why not listen for my 3rd time around with this book. I find it hard to believe that anyone will find the voice of Catherine appealing...it's just awful , sounds like she's in a panic and hurried. Unfortunately...they really ruined this story by using two narrators, the Narrator for Alex is very good and should have been the only one. I don't like being so critical but it's upsetting when a good book is too painful to listen to....definitely returning it.
