lost love one chance to make it right

Jillian walked away for their secret affair after a misunderstanding. Aidan does not understand why Jillian walked away. No conversation about he breakup. No slow departure. Just its over and that't that. They had one last chance to make this right. Aidan finds a way to get to see the one woman he loved more than anyone else in the world. Jillian walked away from the one man she loved and for a year now she has just been getting by. Her once break from all going on in her world turns in to the best decision she did not make on her own. With help from family, Jillian and Aidan find themselves on a cruise for 14 days and that second chance needed to give them both happiness.

Shari Peele does a good job with the narration but I was wanting a more masculine Aidan Westmoreland.

Really good first experience with audible.

The story was hallmark Brenda Jackson style. The reader used different tones to capture the group of characters. I'm enjoying this service. So nice to have my hands free.

Way Too Predictable-Pointless Read

What would have made The Secret Affair better?

There were no twists. There were really only three scenes in the entire book. I could've determined the middle & ending from the beginning of the book had I known in advance that it had no real substance.

What do you think your next listen will be?

My next listen will probably never be another Brenda Jackson novel. I'm so sorry to say that, because she mentioned FAMU in the book. I wanted to give her a good review just because, but the I just can't. The book was not boring. She's good at creating a scene, but the storyline is just awful.

Which character – as performed by Shari Peele – was your favorite?

None of them.

What character would you cut from The Secret Affair?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

The book was just all wrong. It could be summarized in three sentences.

I didn't stop until the book was finished...

The narrator kept me interested. I'm a sucker for a good romance book whether it's audible or old fashioned read from a book.
