Christina C. Jones did an amazing job with this enemies-to-lovers storyline. Kyle and Ben were truly representative of the term “opposites attract”. I love how there is strong family dynamics as well as a supportive group of friends who aren’t afraid of telling it like it really is! This story showcases how grief affects everyone differently and the coping mechanisms used to overcome tragedy is individual to each person’s perspective. Sean Crisden and Wesleigh Siobhan were excellent narrators who brought all the “Feels” to this emotionally charged
relationship. An added bonus was that this story wasn’t about only young love but pertained to love of a certain age too.

This Book Was Everything!!!

The Culmination of Everything was everything! I absolutely loved this book! Kyle and Ben’s love story started off unconventionally. These two bumped heads from the jump. Primarily because, Ben was an azzhole. This dude was so dislikeable. Kyle has come to Sugar Valley to heal her heart after losing her husband and daughter to gun violence two years earlier. While reflecting on the mountaintop, she has a run in with a bear and Ben has to save her. Fast forward 48 hours later when they run into each other at the bar in the inn and Ben is outrageously rude for absolutely no reason at all. I mean, this dude was all kinds of out of line. From that moment on, Ben and Kyle embark on a rollercoaster ride of dislike for one another. But, as we delve deeper in the book, we find out that Ben is dealing with his own trauma which, is the cause for his atrocious behavior. Kyle and Ben were two broken hearted souls who were perfect for one another. They may not have known it at the time but, they were what each other needed to start their healing process. Then we have a little senior drama brewing on the side with Regina and Doris and their deceased and ex-husbands. As much as I loved this book, I had a few issues with it. Why was there no closure with Morgan? The last we saw of him was when he was having dinner with Kyle and some other people. After she and Ben had their fight, we didn’t hear from Morgan again. I feel like we should’ve had some kind of closure with him because, Kyle definitely led him on. Did he ever find out about Kyle and Ben? Why was the fact that Kyle was older than Ben never bought up? I feel like that’s something that should’ve addressed. They never discussed their ages with one another so, I don’t think Kyle even knew she was older than Ben. And, the whole baby issue is something that should’ve been resolved. She kept telling Ben she couldn’t have kids but, they never discussed other alternatives. It’s almost like she kept bringing it up because, she didn’t want to have anymore kids. And, I know good and well that can’t be considering how Regina kept going on and on about wanting grandbabies. Other than those issues, The Culmination of Everything was a great book. It was definitely a love story for the grown and sexy.

Ben is such an a**hole, and I love him!

This is a true example of how some men have a hard time expressing their feeling in words. However, Kyle is time enough for him. She reminds me of myself(smile). This is a good read and you will not be disappointed. Also, the narrators did an awesome job. I’ll be listening to this one again!

Ive listened to this so many times

I loved this book. Wesleigh Siobhan is my favorite female author and Sean Crisden is my second favorite male author.... I enjoyed these two narrators together and I enjoyed the story. I liked Sean as a smart mouthed ranger... great story and narration from both narrators

Decent read

This was a good read. A good use of the 6 plus hours. I enjoyed listening to how Kyle and Ben fell in love. The plot was not unpredictable but it was definitely sweet. I loved the way Kyle’s character was strong and vulnerable at the same time. As a feminist it brought me delight to watch the development of Kyle’s character. Ben was also fun to listen too. He is an ASS but the type you just can’t get enough of. As a née reader of Christina Jones I was delighted.
