Publisher's Summary

My name is Rose Madden, and I have spent my life being the perfect daughter. Thanks to my daddy, I'm an expert marksman who dresses like some modern-day freaking June Cleaver. My life has been perfectly scripted since the day I was born. I've never deviated from the plan - until I met attorney Max Decker. Now he has me doing insane things to get his attention, like grabbing him in his car and being arrested for stalking my ex-boyfriend just so he'll come bail me out of jail. He thinks I'm crazy - but he wants me anyway. Will he still feel the same when fate steps in, revealing my secret shame to him? Contains mature themes.

3.5 Stars...Fear of Loss...Overwhelming Pain of Loss and Inadequacy

This can be a stand alone or follows the first three books of Lucian and Lia (great stories as well, give them a shot)
Rose has grown up rich and every action is controlled by her parents...never any love, they criticize. Rose covers with jokes and her smart mouth.
Max is an attorney and friend to Rose’ best friend’s husband (Lucian and Lia).
There’s an attraction, but Max holds back..fearing love. Rose has been cheated on by her boyfriend and mistreated by her parents and Max and she come together and begin to build a relationship.
Likable characters..I love Jillian Macie, such a sweet voice and perfect emotion and delivery.
Love Sean Crisden, great voice and perfect, except for women! I hate his voice for women..please quit raising your voice, I’d much rather listen to a baritone female!
This series is worth the credits or money and time!
Going to have to buy the next book in the series Adian

Enjoyed

I read the reviews on this book and regardless of some bad ones i went ahead and pick this up. I am very glad i did because it talks about a very stonge topic on how some people deal with sttess. This was a very heart warming book with a lot of ups and downs. I so did not like Roses' parents when you pick this book up and you will know why.

Ok

The story is OK and the main character is pretty weak.
I didn't like the narrators voice.

Thankful for Audible!

What a great story! I loved the other books in this series. All of her books are so good. An instant purchase for me! Great narrators.
I've been waiting for it to come out in Audible.

Narration Runied It...Just AWFUL

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe someone that isn't familiar with the Series

Has Rose turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I will be more careful and read the reviews before I buy another Sydney Landon book. Her books are a hit or miss.

What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden and Jillian Macie ’s performance?

Absolutely NOTHING! it was just AWFUL

What character would you cut from Rose?

Rose, she was so pathetic & desperate. This is not the Rose from the other 3 books in the series. Yes, she had issues but that is all I heard throughout the entire book. She didn't have any backbone in this version, I mean NONE! Suddenly Rose is nice and sweet? Really, NO!

At least we kind of got the chance to catch-up with Lucian & Lia. But not so much! if you get the audiobook you will understand what I mean.

The story came off as stale and outdated. It read like the Author had to put something out there for the listeners. I don't believe true fans of Lucian & Lia's story will enjoy Rose's story, I'm sure they will be very disappointed.

And the Epilogue, Sydney you could've kept that nonsense.

Any additional comments?

This Audiobook is a Prime Example as to how BAD Narration can ruin it for the listener. Sean Crisden was ok, his female voice needs work though.

As for Jillian Macie, what can I say about how terrible she was for Rose. Her voice did nothing for the passionate Sexy scenes, it sounded like she was talking through her nose, while under water and her reading style sounded like she was reading a recipe book. It was just that awful.
As far as the male voice, what male voice? she didn't change her voice and I couldn't tell the characters apart male or female. The scenes that were suppose to be laugh out loud, fall flat because she did an awful job with delivering the lines.

Did I say how I forwarded most of the book and missed absolutely nothing.. Now some may say how can you say you hated if you forwarded a lot of the book. Well let me say if you can forward about 30% of the book and still come back to the same 'ole thing without missing anything because nothing has moved on or resolved that means the book is full of fillers (basically nothing was going in the book at all).

It's not Credit Worthy... but if you feel that you have to finish the Series wait for a sale.. Believe me... you aren't missing much!
