Design Intervention starts the second season with its own surprise makeover. Interior designer Victoria Bryce must break in her temporary co-host, Aussie Russ Rowland. Victoria, former socialite wild child hopes the reality show will give her the clout to launch her own design line without her family connections. Russ, former bad boy Australian TV star is using the show to launch his acting career in the States. Sparks fly on camera as they argue over paint colors and measurement mishaps leading to passions igniting behind the scenes. But when their pasts collide with the present will the foundation they built withstand the final reveal?
I tried this book but could not get into it as the narration voices killed it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It was OK, not a total waste of time, but not something I want to repeat. Not necessarily going to look for more by this author.
Has Love by Design turned you off from other books in this genre?
Nope. There's always a clinker in the bunch.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Awful accent for male lead--sometimes Italian, sometimes Irish, sometimes British, occasionally approximates Australian (but not often). Every time Russ speaks, I cringe. She did an OK job with the other characters, although it was a bit difficult to distinguish between female characters.
Could you see Love by Design being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
Where is the quality control for narrators? Some are excellent at accents, but some, like this one, are an embarrassment. I almost felt like I was listening to Robin Williams, with how often the accent changed.
