Publisher's summary

What happens in Fiji stays in Fiji - except when it doesn't.

Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional, and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic's concerned.

They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all. Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.

Note: This romance, like New Zealand, contains a bit of steam. If that isn't your cuppa, maybe visit some other country.... er, audiobook.

The fun in New Zealand continues

Where does Just for Fun rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Having listened to probably 50+ audiobooks, I'd say top 10. I'd give the story a 4.5 if I could + the 5 on the narration. The story is good but just not a huge favorite of mine BUT I know I will listen to it again and again.

What did you like best about this story?

It centers around a potentially heavy topic--a fling that results in an unplanned pregnancy and for various reasons the mother is left to raise the child on her own. Even though Nic could have been an arrogant jerk about the whole situation, he "mans up" and steps in. At the same time, he is sensitive and not overly manly. I love how Emma and Nic's relationship grows, including those pesky bumps along the way. I also like how this is a very real story that people can relate to but it's not heavy or depressing.

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

Her accent, portrayal of different characters and the amount of emotion so reads with is spot on. Unlike a lot of other narrators, she doesn't over-emote or have weird or awkward pauses in her reading. She's very fluid in her transitions. The written story is great in itself. Ms. Bocking takes it to the next level with her narration. Even if I hadn't read the book prior to listening to the audiobook, I'd still highly recommend "Just for Fun" because it's the "whole package" as far as audiobooks go. The narration is phenomenal and the story is solid and moving.
