    Story
    "A pleasant romance with a little suspense!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    His Trophy Wife is a story on a marriage of convenience between Morganna Ashworth and Sloan Montgomery. Through trials and heartaches, Sloan and Morganna try to solve the mystery of who was framing Sloan for the fire at his business while keeping their distance from each other. Yet they both start to develop real feelings for each other. Despite the accusations and potential of jail time for Sloan, they come together to find the real culprit.<br/><br/>His Trophy Wife was a charming well-written story. This author really knows how to create a plot with suspense and romance keep me entertained and keep my interest piqued. The combination of drama, suspense and romance was captivating to where I didn’t want to put the book down. The characters were well developed and engaging. The author did a great job of creating scenes where I felt that I was right there in the story with them. I thought Leigh Michaels did a great job with the ending to the story. <br/>


    What does Paula Slade bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Paula Slade did a great job with the narration. She had a clear and crisp voice that was easy to follow. The narrator did a good job with the distinct differences for each of the characters. Ms. Slade did well with bringing the story to life.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book that I have read by Leigh Michaels and will certainly not be my last. I recommend His Trophy Wife to anyone that enjoys a light read that will keep you entertained and have you believing that everyone can have their happily ever after.

    Story
    "Can A Mismatched Pair Find Romance"
    What made the experience of listening to His Trophy Wife the most enjoyable?

    There were times that I wished I were more than a spectator watching the scenes go by. The author was great in creating them so that the reader can feel as if they are included in the world she has created.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Morganna has to be my favorite character. You think she is a compliant wife but then she surprises you. I loved when she gets frustrated with a gentleman that seems to expect (implied) them to do some of his work for him - especially when a mystery is afoot.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't know that it's one particular scene but my favorite part is when Morganna is creating her miniatures. We hear that people are enamored by what she has done and I find myself wanting to see what makes them so special.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There came a point when the mystery is solved that you have to get angry at the character that put our two main characters through a lot of pain. But then if it weren't for him, they probably wouldn't realize that they belong together.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Slade does a great job at narrating this story but I found it hard to picture her voice as Morganna. It felt more like my aunt was reading me the story than a beautiful sexy woman. She didn't try to change her voice too much in order to sound like Sloan which was a good thing. Her voice was great for Morganna's mother and would have actually loved to hear more of her. The only downside to the story was that I had a hard time picturing these two as a couple. I had no trouble seeing them as totally opposite from the other but to think of them as a couple was just not happening. This may be one of those stories where I need to use Whispersync. In the end, for me, the audio didn't live up to the blurb. I was expecting more.<br/><br/>I voluntarily reviewed an audio version of this book.

    "Quick easy chic lit"

    The reader was very good. She didn't over dramatize the voices which I really liked. I like to visualize the characters without the interference of the reader. The story was okay for chic lit. It made for a nice listen.

    Story
    "Trifecta: Drama, Mystery & Romance"

    At first I wondered if I was going to listen to a dark drama like Wuthering Heights. But soon I was invested in the best scenario of drama, mystery & a complicated romance. What I liked about the story was the lack of predictability.

    Paula Slade's narration of multiple voices were consistently true for each character. Her transitions were so smooth between narrator & voices that I felt I was listening to a full cast.

    The only thing that I'm not sure was needed in the story was the number of thought bubbles before dialogue. it sometimes seemed unnecessary.

    The ending was rewarding. All in all, bravo to author, Leigh Michaels and actress, Paula Slade.
