Must love dogs... And sexy vets

Another fun easy going romance by Jill Shalvis. A great beach listen. I really liked Dell and Jade's story. Playful banter and hot romance with a perfect happily ever after. As for the narration Karen White did significantly better with this book than with the first of the series. Very distinct characters and the added emotions of a good narration. All in all it was time and money well spent so I recommend it.

This one surprised me!!!

If your looking for a good love story this is the one for you. This is a straight forward love story, no vamps, wolves, or changlings. Just a good honest love story with alot of fun and a strong cast of supporting characters. Its hard to find a good book while waiting for my favorite authors to put out something new, but this is a good book. If you don't like love stories, then this is not the book for you.

Crush on the Doc.

This book is similar to the first book, only not quite as quirky, more serious. I enjoyed the first book more, but this book was pretty good just not great. If the next couple of books in the series comes out on Audible, I would listen to them. Karen White was good, I thought she sounded like Meredith Grey off of Grey's Anatomy.

Even better than the first book in the series.

I like almost all of the Jill Shalvis books I've listened to. Love the "Lucky Harbor" series and this is right up there with that series.

MAGNETISM OF ANY KIND

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

Yes. Continues the lives introduced in the first book.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have added a little more drama, romance, sex. This installment in the series is a little flat. I like a story that produces a bit of anxiety and suspense/drama.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I like Karen White with the exception of the "hitches" in her sentences/words. Could have flowed better and male voices could have been more distinct. Not a deal breaker for me, however.

Do you think Animal Magnetism Series # 2, Animal Attraction needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. We were introduced to other characters, Adam being one. Let's hear more about him.

slow story, lethargic narrator

Another narrator may have kept the story going for me -this one had a 'sad and sorry' tone most of the time -no man other than a shrink would be interested in a young woman who carried that dispostion around most of the time - so I don't think it was appropriate for the story!

Fun and steamy

I’ve been looking forward to Jade and Dell's story since the first book teased it and Animal Attraction didn't disappoint. With Jade’s impending departure, they finally acted on their attraction and the result was some steamy sexy times.

I like most of the human and animal characters in this story although the cat stereotype was quite strong here. I also like all the self-defense instructions.

I don't like the negative portrayal of Native Americans and it took me a while to adjust to the narrator's breathy voice.

I just really, really like this story.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this story and a huge part of the credit goes to the wonderful narrator, Karen White.

Very enjoyable

Great story. Really great plot. You’re gonna fall in love with the characters. All of them. I just wish the ending would have extended back to them in Sunshine.

3.5 stars: Everything is just ok

Would you try another book from Jill Shalvis and/or Karen White?

I am listening to all the books in the series because they are fine, but I don't love them. They are very formulaic which is ok, but don't expect anything special.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would not have made the main character half Native American. The only purpose his ancestry seems to serve is to make him hot/exotic. It does nothing to really further the story line and it's not like the author shows any understanding of the culture in the writing.

Was Animal Magnetism Series # 2, Animal Attraction worth the listening time?

I would not carve time out of my day, but I don't mind putting it on when I am traveling or doing other things. Because the story is not especially compelling, I find myself loosing track of the plot and finding that I am not really missing out on much.
