The Leftover, should not be left over

This is the first book I have read form Miss Williams. I highly enjoyed it. I found it to be well-written suspenseful and funny in some parts. I love the characters and I found them to be very well-written. I've never been one to watch reality TV decide wasn't quite sure if I would like this or not I've never seen an episode of survivor. Though from my understanding this is not exactly like survivor but I liked this book and enough that I may just check out the series well done.

I also thought that April did a fantastic job near reading this to me.

Loved it

This was a fun story- It was a local version of survivor with all the drama it entails. It was fun, quirky and sweet with a little romance thrown in. Not a steamy read but a fun rainy day read! I enjoyed it.

Narration was great- no complaints!

Lovely

A fascinating romance to keep you listening. Before I realized it, the story was ended. The narrator as well had a great voice.

When love was not expected

This book is everything.

Its based on an average girl that is shy and awkward that goes on a Survivor type show when her sister can not.

The show is everything that Megan is not, Social, Athletic, Adventurous and devious.

But Megan goes in with an open mind and not only finds herself and her confidence but manages to find love as well.

The plot twists are perfectly timed the store paced just right.

I love this book because it is something I can relate to and a character I can see myself as.

Quirky funny read....

Quirky, Funny, Reality Show..... This was my 1st book by B Williams and my 1st narration by A. Richwine.... This was a good match up. AR did a good job on voices and character distinction. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

I LOVED IT!!!

I found this to be a sweet and humorous listen. I loved the banter between characters and thought the narrator performed distinguishable voices for the various characters. The story was original and flowed well. I would listen to more books by both the author and narrator. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. The steam level in this book is low while the chemistry was well done which I found refreshing and a change.

Absolutely Adorable!

Megan is the exact opposite of her beautiful outgoing sister Molly, so when Molly asks Megan to compete in the Nebraska version of Survivor, Megan is sure she'll fail. Overwhelmingly shy around strangers, Megan is happiest working alone at home for her voice over and recording business. Building a shelter, competing in challenges, and playing the social game are completely out of her comfort zone.

When Megan arrives, she meets the show's medic, Cane. She instantly forms a crush on him, which deepens as they get to know each other over the duration of the show. But Cane is nursing a broken heart, and Megan has no experience with relationships. Can these two underdogs survive the show and find love?

This book hit all the right notes for me! I'm a Survivor fan who works from home, is anxious around people, blind without glasses, and have a gorgeous outgoing sister, and I found Megan so relatable. She's incredibly likable. She's a real person with real limitations, and she's hard on herself because of them. I loved watching her grow in confidence and her transformation felt real. Her romance with Cane was so sweet. I prefer books with multiple points of view and getting to read Cane's thoughts on Megan's performance was great. There were so many laugh out loud moments in this book, and I spent most of it with a smile on my face.

The actual reality show side of the book was perfect. The author pegged the game of Survivor perfectly, the cliques, the challenges, the starvation, the scrambling, and the villain. Ohhhh... the villain. She created a nasty one here. I loved the descriptions of the challenges, and got butterflies in my stomach along with Megan as she had to compete in each one. The whole read was a blast!

I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Review

This is a great story , I have watched a few of these competitions on tv and that helped to bring my imagination to life. It added to my enjoyment of the story. There was so much that was good and kind in the interaction between most of the competitors. There are always some that are mean and will do anything to win. The presenters rely on that to make a popular show. I think the author did well and described exactly the scene on one of these shows. Love often does develop due to close proximity and length of time together.
The presenter did a very good job reading the story and really enhanced my enjoyment. I spent a very pleasant day with this book it is really good.

A fabulously funny romance to relish!

One problem I faced which might not be an issue for you is that I listen to audiobooks while walking from place to place. I bet you don't get what I am on about. This book had me laughing. Out loud. Without warning. (I am pretty sure fellow pedestrians thought I was off my rocker.)

You cannot help but love Megan. She literally personifies the insecurities most women face in some form. She is a glasses-wearing, shy, insecure, slightly clumsy, highly intelligent, painfully honest, socially awkward introvert. Through no desire or effort of her own she finds herself a contestant on a Survivor like TV show, the Leftover. She does not have the skills to deal with most of the physical tests but she more than makes up for it with the mental stamina to strategically work through the challenges. The remaining contestants are very interesting and she quickly forms her own posse with three others as they fight to reach the end line.

And Cane.... ooo lala! He is the sensitive, hot, seemingly confident but actually not, paramedic on the show. He comes with medical knowledge and experiential wisdom of being on a TV show himself as well as a little baggage in the romance department. His past promises to present an obstacle.

There is an instant connect of the unusual kind between the two protagonists. Considering the book only features a few kisses, the reader can still feel the palpable chemistry igniting between the two as the plot thickens. The humour, action, conversation and description takes care of the rest.

I hadn't ever read Brooke Williams books before but I am already looking forward to the next. This was pure entertainment and romantic comedy escapism!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
