Publisher's Summary

Lauren had been raised to not be afraid of anything, and she lived by that code, that is until her dad died and left everything in her hands. Now she’s not only in charge of her two younger sisters, but she’s running a full-blown Texas ranch. Caring for a thousand-acre ranch has its ups and downs, physically, mentally, and financially. All she is looking for is a little break. What she doesn't have time for is someone who will only complicate her life further.

Chase is back in his hometown. Helping his dad with his veterinary practice is high on his list. So is being with the lovely Lauren West. Years ago, he found a unique way to bind them together. Now all he has to do is prove to her that he’s the right man to spend the rest of her life with.

    "audio-dont use for books unless the change"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    loved the story and book , it was the audio that was attached..not good at all,the guy made the characters sound awful. when you couldn't distinguish between guy and girl..kind of turn OFF


    What did you like best about this story?

    loved it already started the next one, need different voice for audio


    What three words best describe Roy Samuelson’s performance?

    yuck,not good for love story, great narration until needed individual voices and NO WAY, had to turn off to enjoy book..waste of money


    Any additional comments?

    "Sweet and Spicy!"

    A great introduction to the West series! Great character development leaves you with strong female characters and an intriguing plot keeps you listening for more! This particular book was narrated by a man and that was a welcome change. I'm looking forward to listening to more of this series!

    "Sappy, steamy and everything dreamy!"
    Where does Loving Lauren rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved listening to this book and I can't wait to hear the rest of the books from the series! It is among my top audio books so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lauren was my favorite character because she was so strong, independent and stubborn. She still had a sense of humor though.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The wool blanket (before and after).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes... I avoided getting out of the car. I also woke up at 6am on a SATURDAY just so I could go to the gym and have time to listen to my book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first book by Jill Sanders and I'm looking forward to many more. It is obvious that she truly has a gift for writing. I can't wait to listen to the second book of this series!

    "Slow"

    It was nice, but not especially exciting or even romantic. I thought of it as a first grade reader! I would have returned it but was driving and needed something to listen to!
    Wish it weren't so.......

Chase is determined to let her realize that there is love between them. Once she does open her heart to him, sparks fly and they begin to build a solid relationship that they know will last a lifetime!

    Story
    "Steady and sweet"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was an ok ending would have liked to have seen more of their future


    Did Roy Samuelson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I wasn't all the way happy with his female voices but it he did a good job


    Could you see Loving Lauren being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No it was an ok read/listen but I do not see this as a movie not enough mystery


    Any additional comments?

    This was a cute sweet read it isn't one that you will remember for long it will not stay with you. There is nothing to set it off and keep in your mind. The author gives you great characters that you will like. I had a hard time believing some of it but it does go well with the story. I do not see this as every happening in real life.

    Lauren loses her mother in a terrible way and years later as she turns 18 she loses her father. She must stand up and take over along with taking care of her sisters who are underage she must raise them, run the ranch and find away to keep it and her family together. Finding out her father owed money was a shock even more of a shock was the plan Chase put into play as he left town. Lauren is a very independent woman, as well as headstrong. With Chase returning she will have to decide a few things and their secrets must come out.

    Chase has come home to stay he now wants to take up with Lauren where they left off. He must get her on the same page as he is. He does his best to show her how much he cares taking the money she saved to pay him back into fixing her place up. Which sets her off and leaves him doing some toe stepping to get his way.

    Roy Samuelson did a good job of narration making you feel the emotions of the characters. I did not think his female voices were the greatest but you have no trouble knowing who was speaking and how they felt. There is no background noise and if he took a break you could not tell. I would listen to more audio's from this narrator, he isn't my favorite but worth your time to give a listen to.

    The author takes you though the steps of these two overcoming their issues, she puts a little mystery into it but not enough for me to want to read again. I would like to know how the sister lives works out but not enough to buy either the book or the audio. It was a cute read that I enjoyed. I did chuckle a time or two but there was nothing that reached out and grabbed me throughout this read. Give the book a listen or read it and decide for yourself. I wasn't sorry I had read it just expected more from this author.
