Sweet story…hard to get through

The story was sweet, but felt that perhaps the narrator made it hard to commit to finishing the book…though I did. I struggled throughout trying to figure out if it was the narrator or the text. When I heard the narrator read the credits this was the voice I wish I had heard throughout. I believe the text may have been the issue…there were too many moments where the text felt bland offering data vs a personal story.

A sweet opposites attract 🤩💜

Win and Eliot's story was a sweet hurt/comfort romance.

They are both real and relatable characters. I liked the dynamics of their relationship and seeing them evolve from friends to lovers was simply transcendent.

The premise of the story caught my attention and the storyline was engaging and well executed.


The narrator is new to me and I quite liked his audio delivery and narration.

I definitely recommend this one if you are looking for a hurt/comfort, emotional romance.

LOVED

The List is the first in a new series by Felice Stevens. I can tell I am already a huge fan of the Second Chances series.
Win and Elliott have won my heart right from the start. Felice has the magic touch of creating characters that the reader immediately connects with. I ached for what Win has gone through in his past and loved seeing him open himself up to possibilities. Elliott is so used to being who he thinks the other person wants he forgets how wonderful his true self is. Watching his self discovery happen is amazing.
I love a book I can emotionally connect with and The List gives that and so much more.
Denis Lambert knocks it out of the park narrating this lovely story!
I can't wait for the next book in this series!!!

Sweet and Enjoyable

This was a really enjoyable listen. I liked watching Win and Eliot meet and then find themselves growing into an unexpected relationship. I found myself cheering on hopeful Eliot and grieving Win. If you're in the mood for a sweet love story where there is an actual relationship developing and not instalove, this is an audiobook you will enjoy. The narrator was new-to-me but did well and is someone I'll listen to again.

Looking Forward to More

So Denis Lambert is a new to me narrator and I googled him and found all his wonderful acting work. I hope he continues to do more audiobooks because I loved the voices he gave to this group of friends.

As far as the book itself Felice always writes characters that charm and gut you. Sometimes you want to smash them over the head in frustration too, but you are always rooting for the HEA she brings.
I will say that the side characters really grabbed my attention in this story so I can’t wait for more of Wolfey, Spencer, Chess and Andre.

Great story made mediocre by narrator.

Loved the story, but almost stopped listening because of the awful narration. I thought it lacked emotion where it should have been and his voice was somewhat monotonous in parts. Hoping that another narrator is found for the rest of the series.

Drawn together

One thing I hate doing is writing a list, but having my friends write one for me especially a list for my perfect man is kind of ridiculous, isn’t it?
But that’s what Elliott’s friend did, his pushy, nosy friends, but we all know they have his best interest at heart.
Elliott’s has been through to ringer when it comes to relationships and he doesn’t want to fo that route again.
Winston, Elliott’s neighbor has also gone through the ups and downs of life and he is not interested in a relationship either. He found the list and as time goes one he emulates each item on the list, which in turn bring these two MCs together.
Don’t want to give any more spoilers so I stop there.

Felicia Stevens knows how to give her characters substance and she knows how to draw readers in, like all the books I’ve either read or listened to by her she knows what she doing.

This is a very good read and I recommend you read it.

Sweet listen!

This is such a sweet listen. I love Win and Elliott's story! I just love seeing how their relationship grows. It was just so sweet and it such an amazing hurt/comfort read. I just love these two so much.

Now this is the first time I listen to Denis Lambert and I think he did a great job. He took a story I already loved and made me love it even more. Amazing listen!

Wonderfully written and narrated

Wow is all I can say about Denis Lambert’s narration. He is new to me and he did a fabulous job of bringing Elliott and Win to life expressing all the different emotions of each character even the side characters. Felice Stevens is one of the best at writing romance stories that are so real.

Absolutely Love It!

I love everything about this book: the writing style, character development, realistic storyline, and depth of characters. A truly interesting book I could not tear myself away from. I'm always leery of new narrators, but Denis did a lovely job of telling this story. Ready to dive right into Footsteps of the Past! Highly recommend!

8 hours of my life that I'll never get back.

I'm not jaded, I promise.

And I'm not going to bash this book completely - if you're looking for something really sweet and don't care about a plot or getting hooked cliffhangers or dramatic revelations, this might be for you.

But if you're looking for an actual story, save your money/credit. Sure it isn't always great when the conflict can be cleared up with one little conversation, but this is completely opposite to that - "conflict" is miraculously solved immediately, without any suspense whatsoever, resulting in the story dragging on for hours.

*SPOILER* I really held out hope for the mc's family drama to give this book a little spice but no. It's cleared up in less than a minute, with everyone basically crying and monologueing without any emotion, filling pages with the same information they've been monologueing about the rest of the book.
*SPOILER OVER*

Narrator was fine, albeit a bit slow and monotonous - read another review saying his narration of the credits should have been the type of narration throughout the book and I agree.

if you're looking for recs in the same genre, I enjoyed Roommate (Sarina Bowen), Virgin Flyer (Lucy Lennox) and No Good Mitchell (don't remember the author) Have a great day!

Love it!

The List is the first book is this new series Second Chances, Felice did a great job writing this book! This kind of stories is why she is one of my favorites authors! Their characters always will find their HEA but first we have to watching them become friends and then lovers, you will definitely cry, laugh and find happiness...this book will make you feel so many emotions!

The List is Elliot and Winston story, Elliot is the guy who wants to find someone to love and be loved, he is the instant fall in love and then taken advantage of him, he has his heart broken to many times! So their friends suggested that he need to make a list of Elliot’s perfect man.

Winston is a detective who is still mourning the death of his husband, he doesn’t want to love again but an inusual arrest brings Winston into is neighbor bedroom! Even into his grief he knows that Elliot is special and makes him feel something he thought he lost years ago. I love that they connected immediately but for different reasons they decided to start a friends with benefits relationship, just enjoy each other with no strings attached... sorry but that would never works! Lol...they try to stay just friends but soon that is a lost battle, they were perfect together. They bring each other’s happiness and the support that both need, I love watching them together. their story was hilarious, entertaining and super steamy! Denis Lambert did a great job narrating this book, I love his voice and he really bring to life this amazing characters! I highly recommended this audiobook!

Enjoyable story and solid narration

Elliot Hansen has an unfortunate habit of falling in love with pretty much every man he dates while his next-door neighbour, Detective Win Rogers isn't interested in love and hasn't been since his husband died five years earlier. Bonus points for the unusual meet-cute - Win arrests a burglar in Elliot's bedroom! - and after the grumpy cop insists on taking Elliot to buy a new window-lock (and then on fitting it) the next day, they start to spend time together and get to know each other.

When, after a while, Elliot tells Win about his disastrous history with relationships, Win sees a way they can help each other. Win isn’t looking for love, but he does want companionship – and (hopefully) sex with someone he likes – something with no strings to help him adjust to life as a single man, while Elliot needs to learn how to have fun and be with someone without instantly thinking they’re ‘the one’.

The romance that ensues is lovely, full of genuine affection and tenderness as these two men find themselves falling in love, no matter how much they’ve told themselves they don’t want it (Win) or shouldn’t be looking for it (Elliot). They're well-written, engaging characters although I did find Elliot's naivéte somewhat irritating to begin with, and I was annoyed that Win kept a very important piece of information from Elliot.

There's a strong scondary cast and the narration from newcomer (to audiobooks at least) Denis Lambert is pretty decent. His portrayal of the two leads fits their characters well and his performance is nicely emotionally nuanced - although his female voices need work. His phrasing is a bit of in some places and sometimes some of the characters are difficult to tell apart by ear. But on the whole, it's a good performance, and I'm looking forward to the next in the series
