Lawfully Pursued by Lorana Hoopes

This story by Lorana Hoopes is surely one of the best Christian romance I have ever heard. I felt really emotional and I felt the characters' connection with God and their faith.. it did tug at my heartstrings and it has a very lovely lesson of forgiveness.

The narration by Sarah Sampino was also good. I think she did a very good job with portraying the voices of the characters.

Sweet Christian Romance

When this book began I was a bit turned off by the bet the girls made. It took me awhile to get into the story, however I really liked Jesse, the lead male character. Also once Brie, the lead female character, started to show her true personality she was much more likeable. The story turned out to be a sweet, Christian romance with a good message. Brie learned that life was much more than just living off her father’s billions and thinking about herself. Sarah Sampino did a really good job with the narration.

Refreshingly beautiful Christian story

I loved this book, refreshing and beautiful. At first I didn't like Brie at all. Overtime though her growth and figuring out there's more to life than shopping and partying endeared her to me. I love Jesse and his faith. The way he lives his life is just beautiful. He was just what Brie needed. This was a sweet romance that I enjoyed immensely, wish it was longer. This is my first book by this Author and she's now on my favorites list. Sarah Sampino's narration was wonderful. Looking for a excellently written story that will leave you feeling great then get this one. I was given this audiobook by the narrator at my request and voluntarily left this review.

Great book

This is the first book by this author, but not my first time with this narrator. While this is a clean Christian romance I must say that I would never had read this book, just not my typical genre, but with it being an audible with one of my favorite narrators I had to give it a go. The book was not very long in listening time and I did find it enjoyable and captivating.

This is a beautiful love story!



What did you like best about this story? I loved that this was a clean love story and original.

Have you listened to any of the narrators other performances before? I have not but she did a phenomenal job and I will be listening to more of her narrations.

Any additional comments? I received a free code for this book in exchange for a review. This does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own.

A really good Christian romance!

I listened to this book in the audio form. I had never read a book written by Lorana Hoopes nor narrated by Sarah Sampino before. I really, really enjoyed it.
This story was a Christian romance. The main male character, Jesse, is a devoted Christian and lives by his beliefs. Brie, the heroine, is basically a little rich girl that gets told to grow up and make something of herself--credit cards cut off, has to get a job. Although Brie and Jesse come together under dubious circumstances Jesse turns out to be the best thing for her, if only he will give her a chance.
I was given this audio book for my enjoyment. All thoughts are my own.

Refreshing story

Lawfully Pursued by Lorana Hoopes is a sweet, delightful romance. Jesse is a serious-minded member of a SWAT team. He’s religious and has no interest in superficial, frivolous women. Brie is a spoiled, rich young woman with no direction or ambition. When her father cuts her money supply off and insists she get a job, she thinks the world as she knows it has ended. And it has. Once she meets Jesse, she learns there is so much more to life than buying designer bags.
This was a refreshing story with important messages. I highly recommend it for the young adults of today who are lacking positive role models.
Sarah Sampino did a wonderful job with the narration. She handled both the male and female voices authentically.

Great Story

This is a short and sweet read. Jesse and Brie come from different backgrounds and the relationship starts out under false pretenses like a bet between friends. I really enjoyed listening to Brie figure out that there's more to life out there than just being the spoiled daughter of a billionaire. And Jesse had to learn there was more to Brie then what he thought. The narrator was great and made the story all the better.

Lawfully Pursued by Lorana Hoopes is a sweet listen. This book features Jesse and Brie, with their unconventional road to love. Brie is a spoiled rich girl who takes a bet to see if she can get Jesse to propose to her. When she calls off the bet with her jaded girlfriend, she has developed feelings for Jesse. Fast forward, he gets wind of the bet and is devastated. Brie knows that she needs to prove her feelings through actions, and with her new faith, she sets about that. The story is both sweet and clean, plus has many feel good moments. The narration by Sarah Sampino brings the characters to life. She has distinguishable voices for the characters, and adds the right emotions. I fully enjoyed this listen, and requested to review it. This review is my opinion. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Sweet romance!

A new to me author and narrator, I took a chance on this novella and fell in love! Brie is the daughter in a wealthy family and takes a bet with her best friend to try to get Jessie, a SWAT officer to propose to her. In the mean time, her father cuts her off from her funds and tells her to get a job and become more responsible. Now as part of the working class, she and Jessie take the time to get to know each other, and Brie learns there is more than being spoiled and selfish. I loved this story for a couple of reasons. Lorana Hoopes wove the thread of helping others into her romance. Seeing how Jessie took time to go spend time with kids who were sick, and how just being there made their lives better gives us that feeling of hope and love. I also liked how Brie was able to realize there is so much more to life than her little bubble. It is a fun, loving listen.

Sarah Sampino does a wonderful narration of this story. It's my first listen of hers, and I enjoyed her pace and voices. I am looking forward to more.

Beautiful Clean Romance

A nice clean Christian romance, it is a quick listen at just over 3 hours in length.
Brie’s friend Ariel offers a bet, if Brie gets someone to fall in love and propose to her, then she will get a date with Ariel’s famous movie star brother...the bet is on!
Now Brie is a billionaire’s daughter, she has lived off her father all of life, and her lifestyle is what you would expect, partying, shopping etc without a care in the world. Until her father cuts her off, tells her to get a job and be more responsible. Her world has changed a lot and when she sets her sights on Jesse a member of the SWAT team, to fulfil her bet she bits off more than she bargains for and starts falling for him. What is she going to do about the bet?
The love story is so sweet, I didn’t like Brie to start with but I did warm up to her. Jesse, on the other hand, was everything you could want in a man.
It was written so beautifully and was narrated perfectly, I felt like I was in the moment listening to this.

Sweet, clean romance

I listened to Lawfully Pursued on audiobook and enjoyed the story and very good narration. When I chose this story to read I hadn’t realized that it was a “clean, Christian” romance which is not exactly what I usually read so a little outside of my comfort zone. I was pleasantly surprised and entertained by this sweet, clean romance. An enjoyable listen. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer
