Publisher's Summary

Brooke Markham needs a man. A real good man. 

But she's not looking for a keeper. She's too busy kicking ass, running an empire, and caring for her ailing father to spend time with men who want annoying things like relationships and commitment and...conversation. 

Brooke knows what she wants, and it's not a future with the growly barkeep.

JJ Harniczek needs money. A whole lot of money. 

He's determined to launch his distillery, expand his tavern, and put Talbott's Cove on the foodie tourism map. But there's no way he's asking Brooke for a dime. Not before he takes her to bed and definitely not after.

JJ knows where he's headed, and the blonde bombshell isn't about to change that. Not until she changes his entire world.

Return to Talbott's Cove with this steamy rom-com stand-alone!

Produced by BlunderWoman Productions.

Small town romance that sizzles

The story that I have been waiting for since Fresh Catch and what a story it was. Brooke is feisty and snarky but is hiding a huge secret from everyone in Talbot Cove and JJ the barkeep is a grump who just want to enrich the sleepy town with fresh ideas. This enemies to lovers has the hottest hate sex I have ever read. Virginia Rose is truly a voice artist and her Brooke is everything I could ask for and more. I was chuckling so hard during those text stream between the soul sisters because seriously Kate writes the best dialogue in texts. Jeffrey definitely has the grumpy Maine thingy down pat. When the book is cast well the narrators can transcend the words and emotions and they certainly did.

Far Cry

Another great installment in the Talbot's Cove series. Brook & JJ's angsty love-to-hate/hate-to-love you relationship comes across as hard and aggressive but they both need to hold on to their protective armor until the moment they realize it's too heavy to maintain without being able to lean on each other.

Jeffrey Kafer's narration at times seemed like a Walter Cronkite news delivery, but most of the time it fit JJ's crotchety bar-keep character. Virginia Rose's narration of Brooke was great.

Enemies to Lovers

This is the epitome of an Enemies to Lovers trope, only taken to a whole new extreme with the level of brattiness the main female character Brooke exudes just to seemingly save face. JJ's surliness does not take a back seat in this either. Both are so made for each other it's a wonder they didn't get there again sooner.
The story brought smiles to my face albeit watery at times. the banter and snark between best friends Annette and Brooke balance out the steam and headbutting done in out out of the sheets with Brooke and JJ.
Jeffrey Kafer was a great fit as he has a style of narration that works best with no nonsense characters. Virginia Rose brought out the essence of Brooke's character, giving the perfect imbalance of hard and soft at the right times for the story.

couldn't get engaged

I struggled to listen to the narration. I couldn't get past first chapter.
Might be great book, she wasn't able to engage my attention. Might be just me.

Male narrator is totally miscast

I had to stop listening to this book because the male narrator is narrating a Humphrey Bogart type murder mystery and the female narrator is narrating a romance novel (which is what I wanted to listen to). It was like trying to listen to two different books at the same time. Whoever decided to cast the male narrator in this role should get out of the business.

Great Story

Kate Canterbary is my new favorite author. I have enjoyed all of her books, many in both Print and audio form. What strikes me about this audio book is that the male performer’s approach seemed very much like a war news correspondent. His cadence and timbre were consistently harsh and repetitive. The only time he changed his delivery was when he was voicing characters other than Jed. The female voice actor was good, though I had some trouble differentiating the female characters. Still, it was overall quite enjoyable.

Thoroughly enjoyed this

I struggled early on as the two main characters didn’t appear to have any redeeming qualities but that was the point. As the book goes on both slowly reveal multiple facets to personalities that draw you in. The slow build of the romantic relationship was a delight. Supporting characters were very well drawn too. So all in all a refreshing take on a romance with fully fleshed out characters that pulled me through the story, I smiled, laughed chuckled groaned almost wept with sympathy. And chapter 23 was just so funny. As to the narrators oh WOW! Perfect match to each other and to the characters. This has been the best listen I have had for some time and believe me I have been trying hard to find a good one. I searched for Jeffrey Kafer as he is a favourite narrator of mine, that led me to this new author. This is a book I I’ll listen to again and again. Thank you all.

lots of fun banter between the *sister-wives*

Far Cry was light hearted and fun at times, but it also had moments that were more emotional peppered throughout the story. It was great seeing other couples from the previous books in the series - I love Annette even more in this book than her own. She is such an awesome and fun bestie to Brooke. These 2 had such a great *sister-wife* friendship, and the emotional support they provided each other with their witty banter made for great reading, and they injected a lot of humour throughout.

Brooke is a strong minded, independent woman who finds it very hard to ask for help. She is a force to be reckoned with, and she can be just a little snarky at times, especially towards JJ. JJ was such a great character - he has no issue with Brooke's attitude, instead seeming to enjoy their verbal sparring matches.

I did enjoy the performance of both narrators - first time I've listened to Jeffrey Kafer, and his performance grew on me throughout the story.
