Publisher's Summary

Rescue Me

Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it's the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there's an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid - firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile....

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life 10 years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge - and this bad boy - a second chance....

Returning home

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I like Jill Shalvis books and this is no exception.The story has good flow and a nice plot. The connection between the family members makes you want to hear all of their stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think Lily , since she has human flaws (junk food addiction) and a really big heart.

What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a really good job of making you feel like different people are involved instead of just one person. Some narrator read the story and others put you in the story. She's one of the latter.

" Twig and Berries Swinging in the Wind"

What did you love best about Second Chance Summer?

Jill does it again! Good humor, but you have to be in the mood for it. This is an easy listen of family loyalty and taking care of one another.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the characters i.e. Mitch, gads his scenes were funny. Jonathan, "Lily Pad". All the brothers interaction when surrounded by humor were good. Author has a great way with simple words that paint a funny picture. I hope books #2 and #3 are just as funny.

What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

You can never get enough of Ms White as she is a great professional! Her males voices are as sexy as all the author's she reads intended them to be. She gets the nuances of a sexy male hunk. I did not buy the flood of books audible got from this author with a number of new readers. The reader samples were dull and seemed boring. Gads, audible and/ or author got smart and had Ms White read this series.See author Julie James for another great fun series. Ms White brings all the characters and fun to life. It was the Julie James series that got me hooked on this reader. Then on to this author

Good Listen...

If you could sum up Second Chance Summer in three words, what would they be?

Good Summer Listen

What did you like best about this story?

The love story plot was a little different than most romance.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

yes

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

yes, I couldn't wait to hear the whole thing, now I have to wait for the next. =(

Any additional comments?

I couldn't get over the fact that the narrator kept pronouncing Aiden as Hayden. It drove me crazy..

I want to move to Cedar Ridge!

After absolutely devouring the Wildstone series, I was super excited to read more from Jill Shalvis and her Cedar Ridge series seemed a perfect next step - it's features another small town setting and is also connected by the Kincaid siblings that each book features. While I didn't enjoy Second Chance Summer as much as any of the Wildstone books, I did still really like it. Not only do we get to meet the Kincaids and experience their fantastic familial relationships, we get low angst, great steam, and realistically complicated second-chance romance. I'll admit, the relationship did seem sort of low stakes, but it was still a fun ride and the Kincaids' antics are well worth the price of admission. I'm looking forward to getting Hudson's HEA next! 3.5 out of 5 wine glasses.
