I've never believed in love at first sight. Insta-lust? Definitely. But it's impossible to fall in love in a day. So when I meet a sexy-as-hell Frenchman at a music festival the summer before my senior year of college, I'm determined to keep him from stealing my heart. I didn't plan on Luc. He's got the stars on his side and won't let me go without a fight.
Lola has me bewitched from the moment I see her. I know we're destined for more than a weekend in my bed. But I have to return to France in a few short weeks, and she's afraid to let fate take control. I've only got a few nights under the stars with her to prove we've got more than desire between us. I'll make her mine and show her love can strike without warning, just like the storm that brought us together.
Luv believe s in love at first site but Lola does not. Can the unexpected meeting of these two get past their differences? This is a music festival weekend whirlwind romance. Great story and narration was on point.
OMG, this book! Amazing storyline + Will Watt + French Accent = Exploding Ovaries. I loved how short, sweet and steamy this book was
Kim Lorraine killed it! Also, if I thought Will Watt's voice was uber sexy in all the other narrations I've heard before and couldn't be any sexier, I apparently was wrong because I had never heard him with a French accent! This is to die for! My only wish was that it was longer, I want more, more, MORE!!!! I hope the other De Luca boys get their stories too, like Jamie!
If you are looking for some inmediate gratification in the way of a short story in the way of great sexy times & narration this is a great fix. The insta-love connection is the basis of the story. You either have chemistry or not and these characters have that in spades for each other.
If I ever read a novella that could make me swoon and anxious at the same time, Until the Stars Fade shoved it's way at the top of my list. Will Watt and Em Eldridge have done it again, as this duo makes the perfect team for audio. Mr Watt has definitely proven hes the master of accents as his French voice just makes you melt.
Kim definitely packed a punch with this short read. She will definitely make you believe in love at first sight, even if you're sceptical about it. Lola and Luc's story kept me turning page after page from beginning to end. Until the Stars Fade is one heartwarming swoony novella you don't want to miss.
This book was my first audiobook. It is Short, sweet, and perfect. It’s a dual POV and Since Luc is French I got to listen to ever word he thinks and says in a French accent.
The hot weekend Lola expects to have is not what she gets. Although it is hot, Luc is French after all, and a lover. But they go hand in hand especially if he believe in love at first sight. Only issue is Lola doesn’t think that’s a thing. I really enjoyed listening to a woman not falling for that. Even if her heart might fall for him regardless. I can’t blame her, he uses his French to heat her body and warm her heart. Great weekend HEA story.
"Sometimes letting go of the plan is the best way to get where you're supposed to end up."
This story is so beautiful and very heart warming, I couldn't stop grinning through the whole book. But there was also a moment when I couldn't contain the angst that I was feeling over what was going to happen that I had to pause the audio and calm myself down.
The narration is truly amazing and makes the book even more enjoyable.
I mean you cannot go wrong with Will M Watt he is totally great and his French accent was totally dreamy.
It was my first time listening to Em Eldridge and she was so great bringing Lola to life her voice was perfect.
Overall this was such an amazing stort and one that I'll probably be listening over and over again.
What a way to start the weekend! Kim Loraine has written a beautiful, love at first sight novella! This story of Lola and Luc will give you the feels and warmth that a good love story should. Lola meets Luc at a concert that is stopped due to a lightning storm and the attraction is immediate! These two have chemistry that sparks from the first, but their time is limited. Luc will be going back to France and Lola has her own life mapped out. Faced with the decision of being with Luc or following her life's chosen path, what will Lola do, and will she be able to go on? I really loved this story, Luc is such a warm man, it would be hard to deny him anything. And Lola is much like me, very straight and narrow, no room for a change. The turns that Loraine takes these two is heart wrenching and hard to take in as they each search to find their happily ever after.
Kim Loraine has a knack for choosing very good narrators, and her choice of duet narration by Will Watt and Em Eldridge is spot on. Will Watt is especially talented and his french accent will warm your heart and suck you in. Em Eldridge has a wonderful voice for the new adult age character and she gives Lola that hesitancy and vulnerability as well as strength that I love.
Was it a thunderbolt of love or Love at first sight? I so enjoyed this novella by Kim Loraine. The duet narration was perfection! I loved Will M Watt’s French accent. Em Elderidge was the perfect voice of Lola. The imagery in this story was so well done with the night sky and the stars shine down. Instant love stories have intrigued me because sometimes you just know! I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this talented author and narrators.
I read this novella when it was first released & I knew once the audiobook was available I needed to listen to it. As a fan of Kim’s books she has brought a fresh and new story to life. Will Watt is spectacular as always ( he’s attention to the details of different accents he portrays makes this story believable) Em Eldridge is a new narrator to me, I felt like Em was just reading a script (there was no significant change in her pitch or expression in her voice) to make me believe what she was reading was real. I will always love the story first and foremost and as the option is only mine, I hope that you do give this audiobook a chance.
