Publisher's Summary

Good girls just can't win! High school principal Judy Anne Palmer was always a good girl who never did an impulsive, rebellious thing. Ever. And look where it got her!

One night in Dallas, she meets a man and decides to indulge in a liberating night of passion - liberating her from the stigma of being the oldest living virgin north of the Rio Grande. After all, she'll never see her one-night Romeo again.

Unfortunately, the night doesn't turn out exactly the way she planned, and her one-night Romeo isn't exactly one-night stand material.

When he turns up in her hometown as a new teacher on her faculty, Judy Anne knows that she's in big trouble. Can she resist the desire that burns between her and Romeo? Can a night of illicit love be enough?

With eccentric small town characters, a bratty niece, an overbearing school board president, and the temptation of a secret lover, Judy Anne has all she can do to keep her passion from turning into the biggest scandal little Clayton Bend, Texas, has ever seen.

Can't work out? This will amp your heart rate!

What made the experience of listening to Romeo and Judy Anne the most enjoyable?

This was a full, rich story. I went and bought the book as I wanted to savor it with more than my ears.<br/><br/>

Who was your favorite character and why?

Judy Anne of course. This woman deserved so much better with all she did for her family. And her 'Romeo' was a perfect match, even if it took her a while!

Which character – as performed by Christine Padovan – was your favorite?

As she was all the characters - that's a hard call. She did a nice narration.

Any additional comments?

The author does a fantastic job with her characters and the descriptions are wonderful. As I said it made me purchase the ebook - that's quite a compliment.

Entertaining love story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because it represents the conflict that a lot of women who take care of extended family feel - to want to be selfless, but to also want their own personal fulfillment, and wondering how to attain both. Plus it has quirky small town characters that make it very entertaining :-)

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The widowed mom and her realizing that once a new man enters her life, she needs to stop being needy and let her grown daughter have her own life too.

What does Christine Padovan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Bringing character voices to life and making the story interesting and entertaining, even when some of the accents aren't perfect. That is what I like about listening to audiobooks - different narrators bringing their own style and flavor to the story. <br/><br/>

Any additional comments?

I enjoy Ms. Reeves' writing style and will be buying her other stories too.

Cute story with hot sex scenes

If you could sum up Romeo and Judy Anne in three words, what would they be?

Can think of four - 'Hot Sex in Texas'

Which character – as performed by Christine Padovan – was your favorite?

Didn't have a favorite. Character voices are O.K. but the narrator is actually really great at voicing the sex scenes :-)

Any additional comments?

The virgin has left the building!

Good story

What did you love best about Romeo and Judy Anne?

The senario

What was one of the most memorable moments of Romeo and Judy Anne?

Dallas

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Narrator tried to hard, no acting ability, over innunciated to try to speak plainly.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I thought the virginal sex scene was funny.

Sweet Love Story

This was a weekender listen. Something for fun with no serious effort needed. Was not disappointed, in fact, it was better than expected. However, I do agree with other reviewers, the narrator was not very good with the delivery of the story. The poor narration stopped the book getting 4 stars.

Bad narrator!!!!

Really bad narrator! It sounded computerized most of the time. Story was okay. I wouldn't buy this book if I was you, it's not worth your time unfortunately:(

So-so

I have nothing really bad to say and nothing really good. Thus, this book was so-so to me. It had romance, which was great. That was really all there was. There was an attempt at having a serious backstory, but it held no significant degree of interest for me. But I appreciate the attempt. There were 2-3 sex scenes that were mildly descriptive with very milk language used. So most of the book was not composed of bed scenes. And the narration was also so-so. The narrator failed utterly at doing a British accent. I hate that she even tried. It sounded horrible and, thus, detracted from the experience of the story for me. When the story ended it was just one other item to mark as done. No residual smile or joy or disappointment--thank goodness--after listening. Just....so-so.

NOT erotic!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed listening to this book but it was not what I expected. It was listed in the erotica section but there was not much sex and nothing that could be considered erotic.

What did you like best about this story?

This was a very sweet, well written story about two people who really need what the other offers. Roman and Judy Anne are meant to be together, they just have to find a way to make it work.

What didn’t you like about Christine Padovan’s performance?

Christine Padovan came across as stiff. If there had been any erotica she probably would haved choked to death!

Do you think Romeo and Judy Anne needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

If there were a follow-up it would need to be about the neices and the choices they end up making.

Fire the Narrator and send the auth back to school

What disappointed you about Romeo and Judy Anne?

could not finish the book because the narrator is so bad. The paper back will probably do ok.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Get a different narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

use a competent narrator. A good narrator can make or break a booki

Any additional comments?

might have been entertaining, but to wooden. The author might make it in 5-10 yrs. jd
