A MUST Listen!

Everything fans of Linda Lael Miller can expect and more! This work stands on its own but is a 'not to be missed' if you've enjoyed other books in the McKettrick series.

3 sisters for 3 brothers

This book followed the formula of the last two. 2 of the 3 brothers was a cheater trying to either get back with or let go of the girl he cheat on (The Love of His Life) while dealing with work drama. I would've rated higher but the author spent to much time describing things that didn't need describing (ex.-making tea) I've noticed the author loves to stay in her characters heads. Instead of them talking about it they think it & hopes (or not) the other person gets the message. This story like the others was basically pretty good it was just bogged down with to much internal dialog & unnecessary descriptions that made the book lag & longer than it needed to be. Sometimes descriptions make the book richer but some of this just felt like filler.

Austin

Juvenile but sweet. Graphic sex. Story was predictable but there were no distasteful surprises. Too much sex for pre-teens.

good love story

Found a great author who can write a good love story with adventure and not throw every other scene into a sex with all the wordy examples but a loving story. Going to stick to this author and go thru her series.

Paige and Austin together again

What made the experience of listening to Austin the most enjoyable?

The reestablishment of Paige and Austin's relationship after many years of regret and portrayal. It was sweet how the situations they found themselves in regain the trust they had lost before and made their love stronger.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Paige was my favorite. I like that she stay strong through all her struggles and was able to open up to new possibilities.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like the scene when Austin takes care of Paige's feet, by putting beniodine on them and then blowing on her feet to take the sting away.

Who was the most memorable character of Austin and why?

Austin was the most memorable. He learned a lot after being thrown by the bull and having Paige back in his life. I like that he was kind to the animals and to the children in the family. He never belittle anyone.

Any additional comments?

I like this series, but the original McKettrick's series is better.

Sappy, stupid & simple

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I like romance novels, but this one is just plain bad. I tried really hard to finish it, but just couldn't. I was listening to it on
