Publisher's Summary

Charity Thompson wants to save the world, one hospital at a time. Instead of finishing med school to become a doctor, she chooses a different path and raises money for hospitals - new wings, equipment, whatever they need. Except there is one hospital she would be happy to never set foot in again - her fathers. So of course he hires her to create a gala for his sixty-fifth birthday. Charity can’t say no. Now she is working in the one place she doesn’t want to be. Except she’s attracted to Dr. Elijah Bennet, the handsome playboy chief.

Will she ever prove to her father that’s she’s more than a med school dropout? Or will her attraction to Elijah keep her from repairing the one thing she desperately wants to fix?

Could've have been great!

I would have probably given this book 4-5 stars if it was a whole book. The story was good, the characters were very realistic. I liked where it was going and couldn't wait until they finally connected but the way this ended really felt like the whole book was written and then torn into a few pieces and I only got a small piece. I'm sure if you read this story as a whole book it would be a completely different experience. Buying this in pieces just makes it the most expensive audiobook I'd ever own :(

Narration was A.W.F.U.L.

Would you try another book from Lexy Timms and/or Elizabeth Meadows?

Absolutely not

Has Saving Forever - Part 1 turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not necessarily

Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Meadows’s performances?

Never again. I bought this book bases on reviews of the performer. I wonder if the glowing reviews were written by close friends and family. Her pacing was awful; an Australian accent was indicated but not to be found. She seemed to ignore natural punctuation and injected her own. Her enunciation was terrible. I'm sorry Elizabeth Meadows. I'm sure you're an awfully nice person but this is not a good fit for you.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I'm happy that I can return this book to audible for full credit.

Any additional comments?

The awful narration completely obliterated my ability to follow a cohesive story line.

Great Quick Listen

This is a story of Charity who is hired by her dad to throw up his birthday party. There is tension between them since her mother died. While planning she meets her father's apprentice Elijah and there is an instant attraction, but he is know for getting around. I enjoyed the story and the characters and can't wait to hear more.

Terrible narrator

I couldn’t even get through the first chapter. The narrator’s voice grated on me so much that I couldn’t keep listening. I didn’t want to rate the story because I haven’t read it. I’m giving it three stars for average because it won’t take my rating unless I rate the story too. I am reading the book now. Don’t waste your money on this audio book.

Narrator On Speed Talk

This has a good storyline. Nothing intense or dark just an easy listen with exception of the narrator. She has lots of potential but talks too fast. If she just slows it down a tad, the listener would enjoy the book much more. We’ll see how Part 2 goes.

Narrator

The narrator spoke too quickly and words ran together. It was so distracting that it took away from the storyline. I was overall very disappointed
