Raw and inspired

This audio was more than I expected. It was a quick listen and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Tragedy turns into a love story. The process is well written and very well developed. I did tear up a few times but I also laughed out loud. It was definitely a roller coaster but one that made this listen that much more powerful. The duel narration was key. Charlie Ongel’s was spot on as LeAnn. The nuances and fluctuations of her voice as she relived the past had me completely immersed. Tor Thom was his usual hot sexy self however this audio also showed a softer side of his tone and range that was raw and intimate that I really enjoyed. Both narrators were perfect for this Audio and I would definitely recommend it.

Life after heartbreak

This book was a fun story about learning to live again after losing a spouse. Making the decision to move on is a hard one that the main character really battled with. HEA guaranteed.

Narration was great~

Living a second chance love story

This is my first Elaine Marie's book. Loving is a second chance love story, emotional, funny and steamy. The duet narration is as good as always with Charley Ongel and Tor Thom. Overall, this is a good reading/listening.

I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have volontarily left this review.

Great Listen

Leann has not been living since her husband was killed. She decides to get her life back. She takes a cruise and must now be open to taking a chance on love and forgiveness. This story has every level of emotions in it. The narrators make it seem so real. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Is it really better to have loved and lost?

LeAnn has loved and lost and can't get over the survivor's guilt. 3yrs ago, her husband was killed in a car accident because he unbuckled his seat belt to cover her with his body. LeAnn has been existing ever since, not really caring about anything. Finally, her MIL finds her at the cemetery and begs her to move on, telling her that Logan (hubby) would not want her to be just existing but living her life to the fullest. LeAnn sees a flyer for a cruise and decides to take the trip. Her bff, Josie, accompanies her...Josie is a bit of a wild child...can she get LeAnn to finally let go and live? Brandon is a performer on the cruise ship and literally bumps into LeAnn as they are boarding. There is instant chemistry between these two...will anything come of it? Meanwhile, the bartender, Dillon, has a huge secret that affects LeAnn...will he come clean. Will LeAnn get her groove back on this cruise? There is some drama and misunderstanding but eventually an HEA. Great job by the narrators...kept me interested in the story.

Overcoming A Shattering Loss

In general, the underlying story was pretty sad with how LeAnn lost her husband Logan and how devastating of a loss it was for her. However, this is not just a story of great grief, it is a story where this strong female character finally picked herself back up and learned to live again. One could argue that there were a few convenient coincidences, but I think they add to the story and make it that much more empowering. The magnetism between Brandon and LeAnn is apparent throughout the book and it was a pleasure watching how their instant lust relationship turns into something real. The author does a great job of wrapping up all lose ends and giving us a great story!

I loved the dual narration! These two narrators did a fabulous job and really brought out the chemistry between LeAnn and Brandon. Their voices mesh well together throughout the book and they made this audiobook extra captivating. Excellent performances!
