Publisher's Summary

Professional hockey player Rob D'Amico is confused when he's chosen to take part in a reading program for inner-city students. While athletes are role models, he tends toward the gregarious and playful side, rather than a studious bent.

Despite the lack of funding plaguing her inner-city district, every day, kindergarten teacher Alaina Rossa ensures her students learn something to prepare them for life. At first, she's unsure how a hockey player will help her achieve that goal.

When Rob visits Alaina's class for the first time, the kids welcome him with open arms, despite the lack of even the basic supplies for their education. He takes it upon himself to get the students what they need, sweeping Alaina up in the excitement.

As time goes by and she learns more about Rob, Alaina finds her heart opening to him. Is it possible her soul mate could be found in a world so different from her own? As for Rob, the last person he thought he'd find love with was an elementary school teacher wearing clothes permanently stained with finger paint. But when you're playing for keeps, sometimes you have to get a little dirty.

Rob's Story

What made the experience of listening to Underneath It All the most enjoyable?

The narrators were awesome! I love dual narration, especially when the man does all the male voices and the woman plays all the female roles.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think it was Rob because I already liked him from the first book in the series, "Should've Known Better."

What does Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They don't just read the book aloud. They act out their parts and put emotion into the reading.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, the part when Rob got hurt.

Any additional comments?

This was a fun listen.

Love this hockey romance

Once again the author wrote another great hockey romance story and the two narrators did a terrific job depicting the story and the characters. I love how the cast of characters just come to life with their performances and everything just flow seamlessly. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book and found myself chuckling and smiling throughout the story. I would recommend this to sports romance lovers.

Great book

Would you consider the audio edition of Underneath It All to be better than the print version?

I believe audio is better because the voices bring life to the character.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything. I love the characters and the dynamic between Rob and Alaina

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I absolutely loved this book and wanted to listen to it all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Underneath It All by Cassandra Carr was another great book in the series. I fell in love with Rob's character in the first two books of the series. Rob was a character that you want the best for and you want him to be happy. I loved seeing Rob take part in a reading program for inner-city schools. Rob met Alaina, a kindergarten teacher, and you could see the sparks flying. I loved this story and seeing how generous of a man Rob is. I can't wait to read more by the author. This is a must read.

2nd Book in a great series

Where does Underneath It All rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would say in the middle.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Underneath It All?

I loved Rob's generous heart and how he got other hockey players involved in giving back.

What does Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Wen and Kai have a way of pulling the listener into the book. Love to listen to books narrated by them!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I wanted to know if Rob got past Alaina's defenses and her to realize he was much more than just a hockey player.

Absolutely Loved It!

I enjoyed this story from beginning to ending! I loved Rob! He is just an awesome character! I enjoyed having Sarah and Sebastian from book one in the story as they have fantastic camaraderie! Alaina was more reserved at first but her character bloomed in the story. Fantastic job done by both narrators!!! I love the effort they put into their characters!!

Heart warming story

I loved this store as much as the first. A lot of heart warming moments in this story that brought tears to my eyes. Rob is an amazing character with a huge heart. Lots of steamy moments that are scorching hot! I'm in love with the storm hockey team and hoping that we hear more from them!
