Publisher's Summary

She follows all the rules. He’s going to teach her how to break them. After a heartbreaking tragedy, successful attorney Amelia Crowley has numbed herself to the pleasures of life, clinging to a specific set of rules, finding strength in order and organization. When she meets easy going surfer Ryan Fielding, that organized life is turned upside down by a sea of washboard abs and sun-kissed hair. Sexy and charismatic, Ryan looks for pleasure however he can find it in an effort to silence his own inner demons. Until Amelia crashed into his life the only thing he chased was the next wave. Refusing to break their connection and determined to break through her carefully crafted walls, Ryan sets out to throw out every rule in her book and show Amelia that pleasure can't be planned. Can Amelia let Ryan take the lead or will she cling to her rules and wipe out their chance at love?

Books like this need to be listened to.

Each book in this series that I listen to continues to bring me a warm feeling. Leslie McAdam has this way of creating a bond between characters that is so incredibly strong that it's hard not to route for them from the beginning. Ryan, a coffee shop manager and Amelia, a lawyer are attracted to each other. When Amelia finally gets up the nerve to talk to Ryan, their explosive attraction comes out front and center. Amelia has had some tragic heartbreak in her life and is having a difficult time coming out of her depression. Ryan, who Amelia remembers from high school may be the perfect remedy. But will Amelia be able to trust in his love? The way that this story is woven, Amelia and Ryan are faced with stereotypes, dealing with the past, low self esteem, breaking the rules and following their dreams. McAdam is able to intertwine their incredible chemistry and some very sensitive subjects into a story that will captivate you and keep you listening. (And there are some really hot scenes). Take the journey with Ryan and Amelia, you will love it.

Charley Ongel and Tor Thom take you into Ryan and Amelia's world with such emotion, you are drawn completely into the story. The two immediately create their characters in way that is familiar, making the story feel like you are living it with this couple. The passion, pain and happiness is felt right to the core making it a wonderful listen.

Two thumbs up!

Amelia has such a long list of don'ts. She believes her life can only works if she sticks to her list until... a sexy surfer shows up in her life.

Another amazing story by Leslie McAdam. I love the twist in her stories and her style. She has a way with words I haven't seen with other authors.

The narrators have done an excellent job with the characters. Great performances and the perfect emotions in the tone of their voices. I love their work! Excellent!

Two thumbs up

This is a wonderful story! Tor Thom and Charley Ongel needs to give themselves a pat on the back for this narration. They did an excellent job!

Fantastic narration, but I couldn't connect

I really enjoyed the narration of The Sun and the Moon by Leslie McAdam, but the story itself didn't quite hit the mark for me. I did not feel an emotional connection to either the hero or heroine, though I did like Ryan more than Amelia. I also applaud the author for tackling depression in an honest and realistic way.

Amelia felt too immature at times and was too quick to jump to conclusions without actually taking the time to speak with Ryan. This didn't seem to gel with her age or profession. I understand that given her history, her confidence and worth were critically damaged, but I just wanted to see her stand more on her own, rather than be propped up by Ryan. I don't think I would have liked Amelia at all had it not been for Charley Ongel's performance. She made me sympathetic to a character I would otherwise dislike.

Ryan seemed too good to be true and probably my biggest complaint about him was his "I'm a sensualist" shtick. I understand his desire to live in the now and fully experience life, but it just felt sleazy. I was impressed though by his infinite amounts of patience when it came to Amelia and his desire to help her get rid of all of her rules. His long time crush on her, was equal parts cute as it was bizarre, given that she never knew he existed back when they were in high school. All together, as much as I wanted them together, it just felt disjointed. The highlight of the audiobook was Tor Thom's performance as Ryan. His voice was both playful and sexy and I enjoyed his parts the most. The addition of his point of view in earlier scenes at the end of the book was a fun treat.

I loved this story and loved the narration! This story was a relatable one for me in a few ways. Woman struggling with depression meeting a man that helps her through it and helps her feel alive in so many ways. Great story!
