Publisher's Summary

Hollywood star Ashe Hunter has done many things to get ahead...some of them best kept hidden from the public eye.
 

But when someone from his past threatens to reveal his darkest secrets, how far will he go to keep them from the woman he loves?
 

To his fans, Ashe Hunter is the perfect man, the classically trained British actor taking Hollywood and Broadway by storm. To his American girlfriend, Riley Eames, he is a man in love who'll do anything to keep her safe from the prying eyes of paparazzi suddenly digging into her life.
 

But to someone from his past, Ashe is her ticket to Hollywood fame, and she'll do anything to get it even if it means tearing down the perfect image he built for himself long after he left her.
 

Loving Riley is the second novel in a series readers have called “beautiful”, heartbreaking”, and “full of shocking twists and turns”.

still loving Ashe

I am in love with this series and these characters. while this is book 2, it can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend reading book 1 for the full effect of the characters background. I loved the narration (his voice melts me like butter). Loved the twists in the story line, the sweet romance and of course the HEA...

Great voice brings the story to life

I really enjoyed "Loving Riley" by Liz Durano. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. This series is the first I've read of this author and I'm glad I picked up her work. The books so far have been well written with thoughtful plots and engaging characters. I love the sneak peeks into the celebrity romance genre and this author did a great job capturing the essence. This book was the second in the series and the story takes up just where we left off in the first and didn't disappoint. plus the narrator's voice captured my mental image of Ashe perfectly and I can't wait for the next in line in the series.
Happy Reading... enjoy!

Riley and Ashe

Liz Durano is an extremely talented author! I love this celebrity series. Ashe and Riley have overcome so much. The secrets revealed in this book were so worth waiting for. I loved the characters determination. The storyline has heartbreak, perseverance, love, humor, and vengeful ex-lover. Martin John Hopkins is the perfect voice for this book told from Ashe's point of view. I really enjoyed his sexy accent. I cannot say enough good about this book, series, or author.The book is a standalone listen. I absolutely loved it!

Love this series

Liz Durano is an excellent author, one of my favorites. I have already read and listened to book one, read this book, and was looking forward to the audio of this book. I was not disappointed. Already being invested in the characters from LOVING ASH, the continuation of the story was perfectly entertaining. My heart ached and soared throughout. I cannot wait to get Gareth's book/audio!

Martin John Hopkins has a deep, gorgeous, sexy voice!!! He is easy to listen to for long periods. I almost give him 5 stars but need to take half a star because it took some time to get use to his reading. I'm use to different "voices" for the different characters. A couple times I had to concentrate to figure out who was saying what because it all kinda ran together. But I enjoyed his performance more than book one's narrator. I'll be looking to see if he's narrated any other books.

Great

I loved this story the way it was told. The narrator's voice was perfect. Ash and Riley had some pretty high hurdles to jump. I loved her breezy personality. She is stronger than others believe, she wants to prove to herself and others she is strong and can take care of herself. Ash is a take charge kinda guy, he wants to fix everything wrong in Riley's life, to protect her, make her happy. This is about family, secrets, betrayal, trust and mending fenced. It has ups downs and a few surprises. This was well written, and unfolds wonderfully. I recommend this series to all.

Loved the accent!

Loved the accent! I didn't want to stop listening. A great addition to the series, with a sexy male accent. Couldn't ask for more. I loved listening to Ashe and Riley work through keeping their relationship together with all of the drama surrounding them. Love prevails!

What matters most

Ashe and Riley have conquered many things early in their relationship. Including a demanding job and a ex boyfriend who is best friend to your current one. Many would love to see Ashe fail and the respect of his peers and the love of Riley. Doubts have begin to form and Riley doesn’t know if the relationship is worth it. As they learn what is most important in their relationship there will be nothing that can keep them a part. No secrets from an ex who is trying to destroy your career and personal life and no family members who lives to see you hurt and fail.
