Publisher's Summary

For artist and free spirit Naomi Logan, sexy radio call-in host Rufus Meade is the wrong man at the wrong time. His conservative views drive her crazy—especially his theories about working women. But after telling him what she thinks—on the air—the last thing she expects is to see him standing on her doorstep… handsome, outspoken and sexier than any man has a right to be.

It seems that opposites not only attract, they ignite! His kisses leave her breathless. And she's awakened feelings in him that he's never felt before. But a failed marriage and the responsibility of raising two young sons alone make Rufus wary of getting too close. Then Naomi uncovers a shocking secret from her own past… a secret that could drive Rufus even further away.

Will their romance lead to heartbreak or happiness for two very different people who are exactly the same… in their desire for love?

Brutally slow

What was most disappointing about Gwynne Forster’s story?

The story moved forward so slowly that it seemed like it wasn't going anywhere at times. <br/>I enjoyed Beyond Desire extremely, but it is hard to believe that the same author wrote this book. <br/>At times it seems like the story has potential, but it is just so horribly slow.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think there was too much time spent dealing with the inner turmoil of the main characters. The characters were so wrapped up in themselves that it made it impossible for the story to move forward efficiently.

Repetitions

The Author made telling a person about character Naomi's child seem top secret. I felt like the chapters just repeated themselves with slight changes. How many ways can Naomi deni herself love thinking Rufus would not understand. ... Just tell him already jeezzzz. Chapter after chapter Rufus gets mad at her, but then plants a kiss on her & parts her lips, just to walk away. This book feels like like a never ending Ferris wheel ride.

Sweet

This is an overall good story. I just wish the setting time frame was clearer. One minute I think it's present day then in seems as if its the 60's. But as I said overall is a good overall sweet and delicate love story.

This was a good listen. It was a time filler.

Would you try another book from Gwynne Forster and/or Carolyn Smith?

Yes I would. The story was good an the narrator read with good flow. I could picturet story unfold before me.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The growing relationship with her son, Aaron. And the least was Rufus tring to control over Naomi's feelings without putting his on the line.

Did Carolyn Smith do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes she did but she did have Rufus sounding like an old man where Jed the 90 something year old sounded much younger.

Do you think Sealed with a Kiss needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. Maybe a few years down the road. To show how Naomi handles her work, the twins and to show were things are with Aaron now and if he's more secure in her relatetionship with Naomi. Plus though in other baby or two and of course a little drama for good measure.

Worth the listen

Although there were parts that seemed to go on too long I really enjoyed this book. I loved the intereaction of the 2 main characters who were both very strong in their beliefs and willing to back up their values.
