Publisher's Summary

National best-selling author Rochelle Alers gets listeners’ hearts fluttering with this warm contemporary romance. Xavier Eaton is in Charleston, South Carolina, to start a new phase in his life, teaching at a military prep school. The last thing on this ex-Marine’s mind is settling down. But when he walks through the doors of the Sweet Persuasions pastry shop and sees owner Selena Yates, love, it seems, is all he can think about.

Nice Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Sweet Persuasions to be better than the print version?

I've only listened to the audio book.

What other book might you compare Sweet Persuasions to and why?

Not quite sure.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I really wished it would have been a male voice for the leading male and a female for the leading female character.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was emotionally tied. I loved the story.

Any additional comments?

I wished the story was longer for Xavier and Selena and I wasn't so keen on what seems like to me an abrupt ending,however, I have the feeling that this will lead into another book featuring Kenyon and Mia.

Pretty good

The story and descriptions of the love scenes were really good, however the ending is less to be desired.

Another family to get into.

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

Yes, the "X" man is a wonderful person

What did you like best about this story?

The way that the two of them interacted with each other. You could tell right away they were into each other from the start

Have you listened to any of Corey Allen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

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

When he gave her his car and then went to sleep. That's what I call true TRUST.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen to more of the Eaton Family tree.

The Other Side of the Family

Would you recommend Sweet Persuasions to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book to my friends only after they have read

Don't remember too well

What character would you cut from Sweet Persuasions?

All the characters in this book have a specific purpose. I would not cut any character from this story
