Disappointed

The storyline is good, as a read, but the narration was left to be desired. Hunter and Abigail both had less than stellar relationships, the connection between the two was not the best in the connecting of the couple. Hunter with his quirkiness was cute when he was trying, and would be considered a good book boyfriend. Since I have read this series and I enjoyed them I'm curious as to how the other Narrator will do.

Good story, narration took some getting used to

I enjoyed the book overall, but I had to cringe whenever the narrator tried to do a male voice. I eventually got over it, but it took a few chapters.

Sweet Small Town Romance

This is the first book in the Oak Creek Series, a next door and opposites attract romance. I love small town romance! Hunter and Abigail's story is sweet, fun, sexy and romantic. They are both great and sweet characters. Liz Lovegood has a voice easy to understand, and she did a good job with the narration. #audiofreebies

Quirky fun story!

I received this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Let my first start out by saying I thought that the narrator was going to ruin this book for me. But when I adjusted the speed up one notch, it really improved my listening pleasure. This was such a heartwarming and funny story to listen to. Hunter is a scientific nerd that really lack social skills. Abigail is an out going, patient young woman. I love how the author develops these characters on their quest for love. There is also a supportive group of family and friends and also a couple of chickens. There will be a few twists and turns in the relationship. The narrator did a good job of portraying the emotions and personalities of these characters. I highly recommend this Audible book. It will have you laughing, shaking your head, and cheering these two on. The author gives such enlightening insight into the characters.

Endearing, sweet, steamy story!!!

Confluence, an Audiobook by Lainey Davis was an just the BEST, BEST story ever!!! It follows the budding romance of Hunter and Abigail. He’s the sexy, hot, oblivious, science nerd. She’s running from a bad relationship and to find her own way. They meet up in Oak Creek and a romance slowly blossoms!!! This touching, intense story was such an emotional, loving journey that I nearly cried!!!! He’s so oddly sweet and awkward, she could be just what he needs??

Incredibly entertaining story with believable, likable, genuine characters!!! Very well written.

The narrator, Liz Lovegood did a great job of allowing you to ‘feel’ the characters and ‘voiced’ them appropriately. A few mispronunciations…but, overall very good!!!

I voluntarily received an Advance Copy of this Audiobook for an honest review.

The story was nice

This was definitely a mix of the usual scientific standpoint and the everyday usual situations. Nerd meets extrovert. It was a most amusing. I got a little bit disappointed with the narrator though.

Good story

The story was really good but you need to listen to the narrator before you buy it. She needs to work on her male voice a bit more for my taste.

Confluence

Such a fun listen. Being a genius it is hard to understand emotions and meanings behind a person’s actions. That could lead to very difficult times, but when you meet the right person everything works out perfectly. I enjoyed listening to this book and finding a new author to look for.

Nice storyline

I enjoyed the story. A main character with Autistic tendencies was refreshing and unusual. The narrator, however, had a grating and monotone quality to her voice which, in the first chapter, nearly caused me to stop listening. I'm pleased that I finished the book but will not listen to another audio book narrated by Liz Lovegood or Liz Lacey (both names were given for this narrator). There was nothing mellifluous or expressive about this presentation.

Great story but the narrator.....

The narrator was a little bit annoying, however, the story was good. I won’t buy the rest in the series as I can not listen to this women’s voice.

3.5 Lunar Stars

A sweet small town romance. Hunter Crawford, astronaut and soon to be divorcee struggles with showing his emotions, basically he struggles with communicating with human beings in general. He’s way too intelligent for his own good. Abigail Baker is running from an abuse be relationship and an unsupportive family. Brought together by circumstance and orgasms. A fun audio, with Liz Lovegood narrating both Abigail and Hunter.
