Overall great listen!

I enjoyed listening to this book! I liked the chemistry between the main characters and found the secondary characters just as intersting and funny. The author had a way of bring out the emotions of the character that I found refreshing. The narration made it worth while. The plot itself was nothing new but it didnt drag on or get annoying. Overall. thisbwas a great book. was my first from the author but certainly wont be the last!

Too much bourbon, uneven performance

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This author obviously loves bourbon and drinking in general. It seemed a bit overemphasized in my opinion. Generally, the story went well but I found the uneven performances a bit jarring - one voice is low and sultry, and the other sound rather chirpy. I don't see these two voices getting together.

Would you be willing to try another book from S.W. Andersen? Why or why not?

Sure, I'd give this author another shot.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene when they get caught in the rain - sexy and funny.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, probably.

At first sight.

This was my first book by this author, but it may not be the one and only. I really enjoyed the dancing around of the emotions the characters shared, building up to the awesome sex. I just hope there’ll be more of Paton & Cassie, they deserve a series. Just sayin.

One good narrator, one awful narrator

Gabra Zackman is wonderful. In comparison, Alexandra Shawnee’s voice is like nails on a chalkboard. This audio would have been much better with just one narrator.

Yikes!

I couldn’t even finish it. I only got to chapter three. The voices were annoying & the story was over the top.

this was a great read. following your heart is always difficult with other situations stopping you from doing so.

Bad choice of narrator

The narrator of the Payton is the totally wrong choice. First you get a description from the other narrator (leggy blond) and than you hear a voice that doesn't fit the description at All.
I could not finish the audio book. I will read it instead.

Loved this story but

The story was great, the narrators were good, but the one who was "Payton " had a bit of an annoying voice... Better had one narrator
