Publisher's Summary

A booty call. A stuck elevator. A chance to move on.

Three years after her ex-boyfriend left her to pursue his Hollywood dream, Riley Eames' life is still on hold, hindered by questions only he can answer.

So when he asks to meet her for a booty call while he's in town, she reluctantly agrees, only to get stuck in the hotel elevator with charming British actor, Ashe Hunter, who's in town to promote his latest movie.

But even as sparks fly between them, a celebrity romance may not be enough to get Riley's life moving again, not when the answers to the questions she's been seeking are finally revealed - and letting go just might be the last thing she can ever do.

The pull....

This was a great book. The emotional pull in the book was draining yet captivating. The character depth was fabulous. I felt for each of them, I loved them, i hated them, and then loved them again. It was a back and forth pull of my heartstrings. The painful love triangle - of the old love versus the new. It was great~

Narration and production was awesome! Great quality Audio.

Fantastic narration!

This is my first book, albeit an audio book, by Liz Durano and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it! The writing flowed so perfectly! Riley is fantastic! She’s a perfect heroine! She meets up with an ex who left her to become famous when she gets stuck in an elevator with another actor… she just can’t get away from these men! Here we have Ashe… oh so sweet and swoony Ashe! He just oozes this British charm that American men cannot replicate! I loved the various subplots and was totally on Riley’s side! She needs some self confidence. She needs to believe in herself!

Tracy Marks was the narrator and she did a superb job of coming off shy, yet lacking a bit of confidence. I was laughing at some of the antics and the fun banter between characters. I’m always so intrigued when one narrator can pull off a variation of characters and voices. Mark’s voices worked in all the characters! I loved the narration!

Amazing!

LOVED this book! Amazing and emotional story. I love Ashe, he’s such a great guy, and Riley grows so much through the book. I laughed and I cried. The narrator had an amazing performance and brought the characters to life. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

What a Rollercoaster!

Warning this is not a light read. Best way to describe the plot is serpentine.

Not your typical girl meets celebrity...

Loving Ashe: The Celebrity Series, Book 1 by Liz Durano is a great start to The Celebrity Series. This isn't your typical girl meets celebrity boy and they fall into each other story. There's a lot more involved, including an overdose, an ex, betrayal, preconceived notions, and so on. Riley meets Ashe when they're both stuck in an elevator together. She doesn't know who he is, but they go on to grab a bite to eat together and end up getting along really well. As their relationship starts to grow, Riley realizes that her ex-boyfriend may make things a bit tougher to deal with, as she still has a lot of unanswered questions from the time that they split up.

Riley and Ashe were really likable characters and the others, well, were bearable. Her sister Paige was pretty annoying, but is also a pretty integral part of the story, and there are explanations for her actions as the story goes on. Gareth, her ex, is kind of a twit, but ends up being fairly decent in the end. The story was a bit slow moving, as others have mentioned, but still very entertaining.

Tracy Marks did a fabulous job with the narration on this story. Like, for real. Her character voices and accents were well done and all unique, and she added the perfect amount of emotion when needed. This is my first listen to any performance by Ms. Marks, but I'd definitely listen to more of her performances, without any hesitation. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this book if the summary sounds like something that you'd like. It's a good, solid listen and a promising start to the series.

Great start of a series

Reading the blurb of this book I thought it was going to be the "normal" girl falls for the celebrity story but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was so much more. This book has so many twists and turns it leaves you wanting to know whats going to happen next. The secondary characters in this book make up a big part of this story and help bring this story life. This book will pull at your emotions and you will love and hate many of the characters in the book. It's a great book that has a HEA but has some good twists and turns to get there.


Tracy Marks hits this out of the park with her narration. Her narration of Ashe was amazing and she pulls off the kids voices in the next breath. Not many narrators can pull off the work she does!

Worth your time and credit!

Great start to a series. Very entertaining, enjoyable and engaging story. It pulled me in immediately and held my complete attention from start to finish. It's definitley an emotional rollercoaster. This is one of those books I couldn't wait to get back to anytime I had to pause it.

Talk about a tangled web of lies and betrayal. There are different levels of betrayal and this is an ultimate betrayal.

A sweet romance, a huge betrayal, a little steamy romance, a bit of drama and plenty of angst with some interesting twists and surprises you won't see coming. Fortunately they do get a great HEA which they both deserve.

Great cast of characters. Of coarse Ashe and Riley were great and both likable from the start. Which made them easy to relate to and you couldn't help but root for them. Paige was an annoying control freak disguising it as sisterly advice/guidance.

This is the first book by Liz Durano that I have read but it definitley won't be my last. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Hopefully it will be available on Audible soon.

Tracy Marks does a fantastic job with the narration as usual. I love listening to anything she narrates. She has one of those voices that just pull you right into a story and makes it come to life. Clearly spoken with a nice smooth pace. Great character voices and accents. All of them both male and female. She has a way of bringing the characters to life and conveying every single emotion they are going through. Very enjoyable.

Unexpected Love..Deceit, Secrets, Addiction and Resolution

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Riley’s long time friend/boyfriend left her unexpected and disavowed her when he began his acting career Riley spiraled out of control, overriding and losing all sense of self confidence. The story begins with her having finally wong contacted by him and her sneaking into a hotel to meet him. An elevator stalls with a man with a British accent (Ashe) and Riley where she suffers a panic attack. So begins a story of past secrets and betrayals and Riley’s discovery of love, understanding and forgiveness.
There are some i excepted twists, that I began to figure out before they were exposed, but not by much...some very painful realizations that those closest to you can cause you more pain than you can ever anticipate. Riley and Ashe come out with a HEA, and others have a painful future which resulted by selfishness. Great story!
I love Tracy Marks as narrator...she’s incredible with accents and different voices.
Worth a credit or the money!

Riley I am!

My first book by this author and I really enjoyed it.
The narrative was excellent and made these characters and storyline come to life.
Could have very easily slapped her sister and brother-in-law silly if I had the chance, and lets not forget your childhood BF...

Review

This is much more than the romance I thought it was when I started listening to it early in the morning when I could not sleep. It is a very complex and riveting story that has a really complex plot. I ended up listening to it in its entirety and was not disappointed. It revolves a lot around family and those are the parts I found most intense and soul searching. I had my own very strong views and I felt myself screaming them out in my head when I did not like what I was hearing. I think the author is brilliant, she starts off pulling us into thinking this is a straight forward romance with a heartbroken girl. Gradually we are drip fed a story of manipulation and lies and heartbreak. This is a cracker of a story, absolutely marvellous.
