I do love anything written by Aurora Rose Reynolds, but oh my the female narrator was just plain AWFUL!!! Her voice is annoying and too high pitched. Normally, I listen to a sample, but in a rush I grabbed this one and I have suffered through this audible story. I will remember to stay away from this narrator in the future!
Loved this sweet very low angst story. I may re-read the kindle version soon, since I felt as though this narrator really took away from what would have been a 5 star read for me!

The loud, shriek in the female voice brings it down. Ok story, ok male narrator.

I usually like when they have male and female narrators, but the male narrator made the female characters sound ditzy and his voice for the female lead was almost the same as the voice he used for a 10 year old girl, which says a lot.

For some this story may be tooooooooooo sweet. It was the perfect story for the beyond crap day it was. It was a sweet slice of much needed distraction. I started the book shortly after hearing of the tragedy in LV and only unplug my headphones to talk to my family & do homework before plugging right back in.
The mix of sweet innocence, crazy & the little bit of suspense was adorably loveable. Carly Robins played Fawn to perfection. Now Alexander Cendese wasn't on my radar as a strong yummy male lead prior to this performance BUT he sure is now!!!
Aurora Rose Reynolds told a fine story. However, I would have enjoyed a bit more of the love birds in their HEA. or more on the sisters or just more.
The last part of the ending was a nice addition to all the warm & fuzzy. I hope you enjoy this book if only a fraction of what I did. I'm thankful it was there when I needed a little happy.

Levi ran into Fawn...literally...on the day that he moved to NYC for his new job. After the strange encounter with the hawt guy, Fawn is aghast that he's moving into the apartment across the hall. Sparks fly...will these two different ppl be able to be more than friends? OMGEEE! I so floved this book...listened to it all afternoon to the end! We got it all...scared of relationship h and a really nice H...throw in crazy families, a murder and some ex drama and we have an 'un-put-downable' book. Aurora Rose Reynolds is a very talented author! Have enjoyed every single book that she's written and look forward to more...need to get MacKenzie and Wesley's story!!!

loved it! Thus book had me up in stitches laughing so hard. Levi and Fawn really were destined to be together.
Very cute storie. With two very likable characters. Fawn and Levi a perfect match and you just have to love fawns dog.
It’s funny an heartwarming.
Narration is good although male narration (Alexander Cendese) is NOT good at female voices. 😳
It’s been a long time since I read an Aurora Rose Reynolds book. When I saw the $1.99 audible upgrade, I jumped on this baby! Running Into Love is lighter and fluffier than the Until Series, but I truly enjoyed listening to every second. My 3 hour drive took 4 and I didn’t care, in fact, I didn’t want to get out of the car because I didn’t want to stop listening.
I thought it was because my navigation kept interrupting me, so I listened to the first chapter like 5 times thinking I missed something. Fawn, the heroine, was jogging through central park…
“I see a woman running toward me with her eyes closed and her hands in the air, waving from side to side. Jesus, what the f is she doing? I don’t even have a chance to get out of her way, and before I can prepare, she’s running into me at full speed and we’re both tumbling toward the ground.”
So since Levi, the guy, is a NYC cop, I figured she’s running away from a bad guy maybe? Uummm, no. They NEVER SAID why she would run in New York City with eyes closed and arms in the air. I guess it kind of illustrated that Fawn is quirky and fun and klutzy, but honestly, that was the only thing that really bugged me in the book. I still listened to the entire thing with a smile on my face.
Turns out Levi is Fawn’s new neighbor! He is a homicide cop in New York. Coincidentally, Fawn’s dad is the same on Long Island, so she has grown up in the life, and she gets it, and I really liked that she knew how to help and be there for him when he needed it.
At first it’s just friends, she seems completely oblivious that her neighbor has a thing for her. And he is an awesome neighbor, especially walking her dog in NY at night (which would include picking up poop!). Speaking of the dog, Muffin was the third MC in this story, and I totally loved the rescue. Another thing I loved is that they both had great families! She has two sisters and very close parents, and his meddling family was awesome as well.
“I don’t want to let you go.” he says, and I know in that moment I could get lost in him.
Levi is a cop, with some major alpha tendencies, but he isn’t the caveman type alpha Aurora usually writes, and I admit, I missed it a little. Still, he was a definite alpha.
“No one has ever kissed me the way he does. No one has ever made me feel the way he does–like he’s marking me, claiming me as his.”
There was some good sexy times, but not too much, and for me there was nothing memorable about it. The first time was actually really disappointing. He put her on top and told her he wanted her to control how she wanted it. For me, I like my alpha to lose control and not hold back. That would have been a turn-off for me with a guy.
Still, all-in-all, this was a fun, sexy, sweet and cute romance with lots of great family moments.
•I listened to the whole thing with a smile on my face.
•OMG, I freaking LOVED the dog.
•She was one of 3 sisters from Long Island! MEEE TOOOO!
•It was a light, fun listen with very little angst.
•I loved all the family and holiday scenes.
•He thought she was “adorable” or “cute” a LOT, but it made the story both adorable and cute.
•A little mystery was thrown in that made the story more exciting.
•WHY was she running with her eyes closed and her hands in the air?
•He made her be on top and control the sex the first time.
Carly Robins can be a bit nasal and can grate on some people’s nerves. I like her for comedy though, so she worked. I really enjoyed Alexander Cendese, but wasn’t thrilled with how he did her voice. It wasn’t awful though and I got used to it.
The Down & Dirty:
Running Into Love by Aurora Rose Reynolds was a fun, light, cute listen that I didn’t want to end. I smiled the entire way through. I admit, it was kinda cheesy at times, she was too “cute”, but I still loved the listen. Their first meet still puzzles me, but the adorable dog in the story makes up for most anything. We also have lots of close family which is a lovely treat, especially when so many of the characters in books nowadays come from horrible backgrounds. It’s nice to see characters with close, supportive, meddling families. This actually felt more realistic than many books I read. I will absolutely be grabbing the next listen in the in the Fluke of My Life Series, Stumbling into Love, when it releases in January.
Rating: 4.25 Stars, 4 heat, 4 Narration
Well this was a very enjoyable story to listen to it was totally ruined by renumeration. The characters were easy to interact with to get to know and enjoy. The story line was consistent and easily followed. There is humor as our couple get to know each other, as well as showing the love of family allowing us to relate to the story. BUT...the narration was terrible. I stopped listening twice not intending to go back but wanted to see how it ended.
I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I always enjoy Alexander Cendese's narration. This book is fun, hilarious and one of my favorite books from Aurora Rose Reynolds.
