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.

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.

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.

Opposite Attract

I enjoyed this so much. Opposite do attract. Spoiled rich girl with a down to earth guy. Who would have thought that they could find love. This was my first book by this author and narrator. I enjoyed it from start to finish. I loved how Brie noticed who her real friends were. Glad her dad finally put her foot down on her behavior. This is a must listen for me.

Sweet and clean novella!

This was my first Lorana Hoopes's book. This is a sweet and clean novella. Brie and Jesse are beautiful and opposites characters: Jess's a SWAT officer and Brie's a billionaire's daughter. Their story is well written, and I love their happy ending. The narration is well done. Sarah Sampino has a great voice, easy to understand. I enjoyed my listening. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.

Opposites Attract

A Christian romance that will surely capture the interest of the reader. The main characters Jesse and Brie are very different personalities that present with various challenges as the relationship develops but provides the “happy ever after ending that one would expect of a romantic story.” Narration by Sarah Sampino was very good as she successfully depicts each character through voice making it easy to discern the thoughts and dialogue of each. Her voice inflection brought feeling and personality to the story making it easy to hold the listener’s intent. A worthwhile read or listen. This book was provided for the purpose of review and opinions and thoughts were my own and not solicited.

Can opposites really attract?

Sweet Christian romance. SWAT officer, Jessie Calhoun, is serious about his faith, and doesn’t believe un dating unless he believes that it’ll lead somewhere. Brie Carter, daughter of a billionaire, accepts her bff dare to approach the quiet and unassuming Officer Calhoun. The dare is to date Jessie and get him to propose, only then will Brie’s friend put in a good word with her actor brother. The brother who doesn’t know that Brie exists.
But life takes an interesting turn when Brie is forced, by her father, to take a job at a coffee shop. Brie begins to learn the value of working for a living. She also enjoys her time with Jessie and us falling for him. What will happen if Jessie finds out about the dare? Can there be an HEA after that lie??
Good story of opposites attract, responsibility and forgiveness. Narration was on point.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

really nice story.

This story is so pretty. Reading {listening :) } about Jesse (I love JEsse) and Brie was quick and captivating. this was a short listen, but the story was richly told. Brie and Jesse coming together as they did was pretty neat. I am not sure that Brie would have given him a chance otherwise. Really good story.

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.
