Publisher's Summary

Happy Ending. Nude romance. Steamy Scenes.

Olivia Watts has a degree in journalism but is always trying to build her reputation with hard-edged stories. Brie is her boss, and she is always trying to challenge Olivia to go outside of her comfort zone. Olivia’s latest assignment is to go within the walls of a nudist resort and write an article that would give people a better understanding of the lifestyle. She’s understandably hesitant, but she decides to take the plunge and force herself to see things through different eyes. 

She meets Gus, an old hippie that owns a place called Eden, and finds his free spirit intoxicating. She meets Forest and Dale, and they are as different as night and day even though they are brothers. She finds the lifestyle fascinating and begins to delve deeper learning that she has feelings for Forest, but expressing those feelings has never been easy for her. Can she learn to be objective and still find that happily ever after that she has been searching for in all the wrong places?

Desperately in need of a female editor

Honest review provided in return for a free audible code.
The premise is enjoyable, the characters are reasonably put together but...the dialogue and narration is so awkward. It's read by a male narrator in spite of the main character and 1st person narration being from a female perspective. The recording itself is one of the worst I've listened to. I didn't mind the voice, but different chapters had different 'background echo,' as though each chapter was recorded in a different room, a different distance from the microphone; very poor sound editing.
Ignoring the recording issues, the story itself develops into a combination of something from the r/menwritingwomen subreddit and what I'd imagine someone who's never read any erotica might think to write if they had to write a sex scene. It's impossible to maintain any suspension of disbelief listening to it. The author uses the narration/dialogue to say things that should be implied, telling instead of showing. Lots of telling is fine in scifi or fantasy, but I think this kind of romance/erotica really suffers for the lack of feeling in the writing.
Finally...contractions. Use them. Please, I'm begging you!
Overall, this has potential, but that's all it has right now. There's gems of good writing, good feeling, and enjoyable development, but it needs rewritten a few times, and thoroughly edited by several people who aren't the author.

Cringefest

I’ll start by mentioning I got this book for free in exchange for review and to be honest I’m glad I didn’t pay money for this. There were some funny moments here and there but this whole book embodies the idea of “men writing women”, and the fact that it was narrated by a man made it feel even worse. This felt like a personal fantasy of nudist camps when the owner said time and time again that nakedness and sex aren’t one in the same, that nudists aren’t swingers and that basically what our main characters were doing. I can’t count the amount of times I cringed reading this. On a more technical note, the audio quality shifted throughout the whole book and some of the voices for characters bled into one another.

female nudist story narrated by a man... nooooo

this has ruined the story for me. I stopped after 5 chapters. it made no sense that a guy in a very hunky voice tells a female story from her perspective in an erotic nudist colony.

so much no.

Wanted to love it but...

The narrator was the worst! It sounded like he recorded in a big empty room. He was also an odd choice because this is supposed to be from a woman's perspective.
