Sweet Small Town Romance

I am a huge fan of small town romances because the characters usually seem more realistic and relatable and Captain of My Heart is no exception. Love rarely follows a linear path and Cass and Ray will have some bumps along the way. Can their love survive Ray's secrets or will they be torn apart?

This was a very pleasant listen and the May/December romance was an interesting dynamic. I suspected that there would be some plot twists but they still managed to surprise me. The narration sounded a bit stiff but was pretty good overall. I enjoyed Captain of My Heart and would recommend it.

My Favorite Giselle Lumas Book Yet


Captain Of My Heart is a sweet romance that anyone from a small town can certainly imagine. When Cass and her 2 young children moved to a small town, she calls the fire department to rid her yard of a huge rattlesnake. When they answer the call, the dreamy and considerably older Captain Ray make quick work of their task. Ray invites her on a date and Cass enjoys comradely and is hopeful for this budding fondness for the man.

However, rumors abound of Ray's womanizing and the estranged relationship between Ray and his son. Is there more? Should she care? Will she be able to guard her heart against any pain he may cause her?

Captain Of My Heart is a sweet and realistic romance with unexpected twists and turns. I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is the 2nd book that I have listened to written and performed by Giselle Lumas, I look forward to hearing more.

*I received this book in exchange for my unbiased review. If you look at my page of reviews on Audible, you will see that they run the gamut from 'Meh' to 'I loved it!' This book falls in the later category, it receives 4 stars all around from this listener.

Please take a moment and select 'Helpful' if you found my review helpful. (It is underneath my review.) I also invite you to follow me on Audible. Thank you!

Great Beginning

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I actually listened to the second book before this one. Both books were well written and the stories told were nice. The narrator was good and broth emotions alive. This book shows how the captain and Cass meet and the things that happened in their past and how it made them different people. I love Cass's kids especially the preteen.

Easy listen

This was an enjoyable short, sweet romance. It's filled with endearing characters and even a few twists I didn't expect. Giselle Lumas did an excellent job writing and reading it! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Nice small town romance

This is a good small town romance filled with lovable characters. Like most small town romances the secondary characters help fill the story and help bring the story to life as much as the main characters do. While this is a short novella it does a good job getting the story told without missing the story and skipping the drama. There were a few unexpected twists which were a nice surprise since I have listened to a lot of romance novels and usually can expect most of them. Overall I enjoyed the audio, however I do think the performance was a little stiff at times. Words were over pronounced at times and it sounded like the narrator was just reading the book without emotions at other times.

Enjoyable Small Town Romance

This was a good 3 star story. I liked the small town setting. The characters were fairly well-drawn, especially Cass. Ray took me a bit to warm up to... maybe I was just waiting for the "other shoe to drop" since the blurb mentioned secrets. But I did find myself being charmed by him. There were some good plot twists and overall an enjoyable story.

The narration was fine, especially as an author-read audiobook. The pacing sometimes drifted and the characters were sometimes hard to distinguish. I needed more strength in Ray's voice . Overall, I won't re-listen to this but it was an enjoyable few hours and worth a listen.

A twist that tugged at my heartstrings

Captain of My Heart is a short, easy listen that i finished in one sitting. Coming from a family of firefighters, this story definitely struck a chord with me. I could easily relate to some of the situations that popped up. I would love to see where Giselle Lumas takes the story.

Good Listen

This short book is a standalone listen, yet only part of the story. It does not end in a cliffhanger, but is open for continuation. The book has some very unexpected twists that I did not see coming along with some endearing characters. I thought the author/narrator did a very good job conveying the emotions in this book and had some very realistic scenes. I would continue to listen to more books by the author/narrator.

Sweet, quick listen with a surprise ending

Giselle Lumas wrote and narrated this audiobook. The listening time comes in at a little over two hours. Oftentimes, I find that these shorter novellas are missing huge chunks of the story, but Ms. Lumas did a good job creating a complete novella that didn't feel incomplete, though Cass and Ray did fall in love super quickly, but hey-it's a two hour audiobook, so some leeway needs to be given!

As far as the narration goes, it was easy to listen to, though I found that it didn't sound super natural, more like she was reading the words. There were little bits of over pronunciation, but nothing that couldn't be overlooked. It definitely didn't keep me from listening.

Overall, if you're in the mood for a nice little listen, this audiobook will do nicely. There isn't anything that would keep me from recommending it. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
