cute stories

these were stories that blended well with the ones before, by bringing the previous characters back as well as adding some new ones to the mix.

the narrators did a good job. I still prefer 2 narrators though for the two POV

Double the Laughs

I enjoyed these romcom books. Ma. Stewart delivered some laugh out loud one liners. I found myself chuckling out loud when listening to both these books. The characters are down to earth, loveable and bat- s*#t crazy. The characters are well developed with froth, substance, having life long friendships.

The narrators Kelseyville and Meg brought the characters to life, making themendearing to the listener. I highly recommend these books be listened to instead of reading if possible.

second book was not a romantic comedy

This should just be under romance and not romantic comedy. I used a credit on this hoping for a nice light romantic comedy. Definitely not that.

Two great books!

Two firecrackers! Bailey is so awesome - I relate to her and I love Gavin! I’ve been waiting for his book. These audiobooks were great - they put me in the moment :) I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this audiobook.

another great story!

I adored Bailey and Jake’s story! I want to say they're my favorite but it's so hard to choose. I liked the narrator on their book as well, she did a good job differentiating the voices without it sounding weird or forced

Great Duo of Audiobooks

The stories are great. They are romantic with a bit of hilarity thrown in. Sylvie Stewart’s cast of characters from the Carolina Connection continue to weave themselves to each other’s lives and they are quite entertaining!

The readers were good, but I prefer that the dual POV be done by a woman AND a man. It would have made it better, but the readers did a decent job with each book.

Fun but headphones recommended

These stories were fun to listen to and easy stories to follow. There were enough characters to keep it interesting without getting too confusing. I did have to buy a pair of headphones to protect my son from hearing the swearing and sex.

A great couple of laugh out loud books! Worth the Credit!

This is a wonderful couple of book! Full of laughs, smirks and fun! Below are my individual reviews on each book! I did listen to these on audio. Meg Price (The Lucky One) and Kelsey Navarro (The Game) are the narrators and they both did a great job.

This story has a lot of laugh out loud moments and smile-to-myself moments. Bailey and Jake seem to be on the same page but yet different pages at the same time. Jake mentions frequently how Bailey runs hot and cold with him and he is unsure where to go from here. Bailey keeps her heart closed down tight and doesn't trust herself to be with a man she has feelings for. When Jake is near her all he wants to do is kiss her….well not all, but the struggle to keep his lips off her is real. After reading about Jake in the previous book I wasn't sure if I would like him. Now I think he is awesome. All the great things he did for Bailey, don't get me wrong he did have a few demons of his own but he does have priorities.

I still love all these characters. It's nice to touch base with all of them again. The girls still seem tight and the relationships with their men add to this fun. I really, really liked reading about the relationship that Jake and Mark have. They have that fun brotherly love but yet savor the smackdown on each other and always have each other's back. Very enjoyable to read when they have their one on ones!


The game
There are so many things I absolutely love about this book! First of all I was so excited that Gavin finally gets his own book! I thought he was great in the first book the way he helped out his sister, Laney with her child, Rocco. This book is no different. Gavin has come a long way and he definitely gets better with age!

Emerson is a great add to this group. I really think she is going to fit in perfectly! I like how she was so worried at first and the stuff Gavin did to try change her mind. Gavin's text with reasons Emerson should date him. So cute! I love how persistent he was to get her to go out with him. I laughed out loud when Jay brought Gavin home after a baseball game unannounced and surprised Emerson! Ha ha! Loved it!

I know this is Gavin and Emerson story but I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE any time Mark, Fiona, Laney, Nate, Jake or Bailey are in a scene. They are all hilariously funny and it is a good time when they make appearances. That Fiona and Mark crack me up! A couple favorites were Karaoke night with the crew and the craft fair. Oh and when Nate asked Gavin's opinion about babies. Super funny! See there are too many to choose from!

An enjoyable set of romcom audios

= The Lucky One
I am currently listening my way through Sylvie Stewart’s Carolina Connections series and having a damn good time doing so. This is the 3rd book in the series and while each book is a standalone, we did meet both Bailey and Jake in the previous books in the series.

I really liked Jake as a hero. He was all-in for Bailey and was pretty much a smitten kitten from the very first but still retained his strong, man’s man-ness! I liked Bailey, too, but I didn’t identify with her all that much. She was a bit of a tomboy who was only just starting to find her girl card. I mean, she hadn’t even seen Dirty Dancing if you can imagine!!

This book is read by only one narrator - Meg Price. She does a good job of playing all the roles and while I could easily follow different voices speaking to each other within scenes, I admit to that because the book is written from both Bailey and Jake’s viewpoints, I sometimes forgot whose head I was in during certain chapters. I would definitely have preferred a male voice for Jake’s parts.

I would definitely recommend this book or any of the Carolina Connections series. Sylvie Stewart is a gem of a romcom writer and I’m so happy I came across her as she really brightens my days with her funny and romantic stories. 4 stars.


= The Game
Older woman / younger man is not a trope I’m particularly fond of so I was already going into this story with some trepidation. But I *had* to read Gavin’s story. I normally get over my dislike of a trope once I’m into the story - but the main conflict in this story was the difference in the ages of Emerson and Gavin, so there was no way I could forget about it as it was brought up relentlessly!

Gavin and Emerson were a sweet couple and I did feel a connection between them. Due to Emerson’s reluctance to make something more of their relationship, it’s something of a slow burn - but it works for them and for the story. It still sizzles, more towards the end.

I listened to this book in audio and it was performed in its entirety by Kelsey Navarro. It’s written in dual viewpoint so the narrator reads from both Emerson and Gavin’s points of view. It works just fine, and I never found myself confused, but I do tend to prefer two different performers for the main couple. Kelsey Navarro has a nice voice that’s easy to listen to and she told the story well.

I was really torn between 3 and 4 stars when I finished this story. I went with 3 stars in the end but I ultimately enjoyed my time spent listening. The trope wasn’t my favourite but if it doesn’t bother you, give this book a go.

Double delight.

A fantastic duet of books.
I really enjoyed both stories,both very different but equally as satisfying to read.
And so addictive.
The Narration for both books bring on the Girl power as both are Narrated by women, Meh Price and Kelsey Navarro,who are both incredible storytellers,and who I Love listening to.
Sylvie Stewart is becoming one of my favourite authors and this duet featuring The Lucky One and The Game just proves to me how Amazing she is.
Loved it and Highly recommend it.
5 Stars.

Two times the cuteness

The Lucky One

This was such a cute love story with some big surprises and of course lots of laughs.
Sometimes even the Tom boy gets the guy.

The Game

This was a home run!
I loved getting to see Gavin in his element.
Emerson & her bestie were amazing!

Fun characters

These are books 3 & 4 of the Carolina Connections series. I haven’t read or listened to books 1 & 2, so I went in blind & managed to keep up with this group of friends. The Lucky One features Jake & Bailey. These characters were fun! Tomboy Bailey can't seem to keep away from Jake Beckett, even though she's a bit off men after the raw deal she got from her ex. Loved the story & Meg's narration. The Game features Emerson & Gavin-Emerson, who was introduced in The Lucky One. Gavin has a past that he's well grown past. I love the way he pursues & supports Emerson, and I loved her Grand Gesture to him. Kelsey Navarro did a great job with the voices and I found her male narration quite good.

I received a copy of this audiobook. My honest opinion is voluntarily provided.

So much fun

This one was so much fun to listen to and I can see it being a favourite when I’m feeling a little down. The characters are funny and entertaining and the storyline had me laughing so many times.

The narrators did a fantastic job absolutely loved these books
