What's more dangerous? The Oregon wilderness? Hit men? Or the heat in Grayson's arms?
Robin is flying back into the misty Pacific Northwest for Christmas, which is a bit fitting after her last so-so relationship ended. Alex just wasn't the right man for her. Things look up when Grayson sits next to her on the plane - he's hot, charming, witty and very into her. Unfortunately their chance meeting puts her in danger, and suddenly Robin is trapped into spending the holiday with this charming, mysterious man at a secluded mountain cabin. He vows to protect her with his own life if needed, but the danger isn't just from the men tracking them down. Robin isn't sure she can trust Grayson, and yet she's pulled to his magnetism. Safety is quickly losing the battle to desire....
A romantic novella from the author of A Cowboy for Christmas, Embers of Hope and More Than Memories.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The premise of the story was o.k. but the author attempted to put too much story into a too small package. The result was, unfortunately, a very cheesy story. Unfortunately, out of my over 400 audiobooks, this one is right near the bottom.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kristen James again?
I doubt it.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator read what was written but in a manner that was too melodramatic for me. She alternated between throes of passion (barely holding back tears) to fear for one's life (barely holding back tears) to the hope-felt conclusion (barely holding back hears).
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Author should use the same story line and make it into an audiobook of at least 8 hrs. to do justice to the story.
This is a well-written short story. Ms. James successfully wove a tale that kept my full attention from start to finish. Being familiar with the physical location in which the story took place was an added pleasure. The narration was excellent! For me, the narrator can make or break a book, and Ms. Johnstonbrown gets five stars for her performance. Thank you both for a very enjoyable listen!
