Publisher's Summary

Joss Sloan is a recently widowed young woman who has thrown herself into her hobby of offering advice to strangers via her online Dear Joss show. It is her escape, her therapy, while she mourns his untimely death. 

A random phone call, made in error by the caller, sets off an unexpected long-distance relationship between Joss and the sexy voice from area code 808. The connection between them is undeniable, which leads her to agree to meet her mystery caller in person.   

Amid her budding new romance with the voice from 808, Joss discovers that her deceased husband Michael has a secret that connects to a mysterious key she found in his belongings. Her curiosity drives her to seek answers, but it leads her down a dangerous path she has little control over.

While Joss attempts to keep her new love interest from getting involved in her dead husband's secrets, her struggle to protect him becomes increasingly tricky. Through a series of poor decisions, Joss's life becomes expendable by those leading the charge after her husband's passing.  

Now scrambling to ascertain whom she can trust and what she can control, Joss realizes her saving grace is the very person she has been trying hardest to protect.

Jacob and Ava are 🔥🔥🔥

First, let's start off by saying this audio is performed in duet, and as soon as I heard the sample I had to have it. Jacob Morgan exudes sexiness with his deep, flirty voice, and with the sultriness of Ava Lucas, you have aural heaven. The banter between these two during their first few phone interactions is fun and had me laughing out loud, esp. as Ava's character, Joss, continues to guess Jacob's (The Voice) name. As mentioned in another review, Ch. 7 was heartbreaking and speaks to Ava's ability to draw you into a story. Though his character is vital, Connor's role is small, so we don't get to hear from him as much. Joss and Soren, will take you on an adventure. You'll also be treated to Jacob's British and Irish accents and, HE SINGS!!! Sandra's words + Jacob's voice = beautiful.

LOVED IT!

I started this book and couldn’t put it down. Jacob Morgan is hands down my favorite male narrator and he didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t think of another male narrator that could fit this male character. He definitely has the sexy voice that this character was meant to have. The female narration was very well done, too. I loved this story line...a little bit of happy, a little bit of sad, a little bit of danger, and lots of sexy scenes! This is a definite “must read/listen”!! My lack of sleep last night was well worth it!

And he sings too!!

I absolutely loved this book. It was insta-love at its best. A very unique story with REAL LIFE reactions. The narrating was amazing. Connor has a small role but I loved his voice. I haven’t been a huge fan of Ava’s but I didn’t dislike her before this. But in this book- she was flippin amazing! And in a class by himself, Jacob Morgan was sex on wheels...well, sorta...he sounds fantastic and he sangggg OMG, I totally almost died. He’s absolutely delicious. I can go on and on but you’ll have to get the book to really appreciate it. This is my first book by Sandra and I love her writing style. Can’t wait to listen to more. 💕

The narration was wonderful

When you have a good interesting, engaging read and you mix it with Narration heaven, you have a winner.
Jacob Morgan's voice was nothing short of delicious through this entire listen. He lowered that voice and mmmm it worked. On the plus side HE SINGS a song towards the end, and it's beautiful. Tack on some secondary characters with British and Irish accents and he does it all here in this duet style program.
Ava Lucas -the story is told from her POV except for one chapter, she does an excellent job. Chapter 7, *no spoilers* will just break your heart, it's actually a little difficult to listen to this flashback chapter.
Connor Crais shows up as 2-3 other characters littered throughout the story, It would have been nice to have a little more of him.

This story touched me, the loss and grief of Joss. However there was so much more to this audio, there was a lot of humor, especially in the phone calls between Soren and Joss, danger, intrigue, a bit of mystery! This book had everything.

Voice from 808

Jacob Morgan is the only bright spot in this story, though I wish he had better material to work with.

The relationship between Joss and Soren moved too quickly to be believable which is why it couldn’t sustain itself when the first true test of its strength arose. Soren’s reaction to the danger Joss has unwittingly found herself in made me lose respect for him as a man and question whether his “love” for Joss was anything more than lust. If he’d truly loved her, he would have stuck around to protect her and find a way to get her out trouble, not abandon her to deal with it on her own and blame her for dragging him into it. Then as soon as he gets to his home in California he has regrets about leaving, starts pining for Joss, finds out that she may have come to harm and suddenly wants to be helpful but doesn’t bother physically going back to find out if she’s alright? He just barks instructions to her then tells her to meet him in California when she’s done? Sorry, Jacob, that you had such a poor character to narrate; such a waste of your talents. Although, the singing toward the end was very nice.

We start off with the impression that Joss is a strong, self-sufficient woman who has been dealt a heavy loss at a young age. As the story progresses, she seems more reckless than self-sufficient. Is it wise to overtly flirt with a stranger who calls a misdialed number? Is it a good idea to Facetime with that person after only a couple conversations? She rushed into meeting Soren and “falling” for him only to find that he wasn’t strong enough to stay by her side when she needed him the most. The way blamed herself for how Soren reacted to her situation made me want to shake her. She should have been angry at him for his cowardly abandonment. Then again she’s not very smart given that she willfully ignores signs the reader can see coming a mile away about the bad people around her.

The “twists” in the mystery of Joss’s husband’s death and the events that occur in the book were predictable, even the solution to Joss’s problem with the money. There were too many secondary characters in this book that got just enough time to make the reader wonder if they were involved, only to find out they were nothing more than throw-away extras in the story that didn’t serve much purpose in furthering the plot. The ending, once the conflict putting Joss in danger and keeping her and Soren apart had been resolved, seemed to drag on, too. Almost as if the author felt she needed to make sure she got in the obligatory engagement and pregnancy announcements before she closed out the story.

I wanted to like this book but almost gave up on it after Soren walked out on Joss. I think the book could have used tighter editing and more creative twists, certainly better character development.

Great Listen!

Mystery, heartbreak, & learning to love again all wrapped up into one wonderfully written story.
Joss and Soren's story is captivating from start to finish, from the banter they share, to the This is my very first story by this author and it won't be my last. I listened to the narration of this story which i though was exceptional! Jacob Morgan hit this narration out of the park! Soren, Mr. Morgan put every feeling, every emotion into playing that character! Then, the singing! EPIC.
Ava Lucas as Joss was sheer perfection! Especially during a highly emotional part of the book, her performance bought me to tears! Just awesomeness! Connor Crais, although didn't have a huge part, did excellent as well! This story was all around amazing. Kudos to Ms. Sigfusson for her spectacular writing.

Beautiful duet narration, great story!

I love a good "wrong number" story that catches you right from the beginning and isn't cheesy. This story is sweet, sexy, fun & has the unexpected mystery w/stellar performances! Joss has experienced a significant loss in her life and tends to be a people pleaser. Even thought she is a people pleaser she is finding her own and moving on in a healthy way. Soren is everything I like in main male character. He's self sufficient, sex positive, outgoing, fun/funny, and just plain refreshing. Narration is done in duet, which is excellent!

Narrations are incredibly swoon worthy

The story had me not wanting to stop my car. AirPods in until I was done. Jason Morgan is the sole reason for me buying this book, and I fell in love with the book. Now I want to go to Utah and Hawaii. Thank you for taking me away from all the chaos of 2020 helping me find my muse to get back in my writing cave and write a book just so I can have Jacob Morgan And Ava Lucas be my narrators.

Didn't live up to the hype

From the buzz about this book that I've seen online I was expecting to be blown away by it and instead I was mostly confused and rather let down. The writing was fine but the story-telling felt disjointed and incomplete.

I didn't at all feel the insta-love connection between the two main characters and honestly ended the story feeling like he could potentially walk away from her some time in the future. He says he loves her but you know what they say about actions versus words.

As for the suspense aspect of the book - it was done in such broad strokes and so sporadically that it just felt highly unrealistic. I've read more unrealistic plot lines that FELT more real than this one just by virtue of being more thought-out and detailed. Add to that the fact that we never get any true answers about what was going on. There's no explanation, no justice for the bad guys, etc. and it left me feeling unsatisfied.

The best part of this book was the narration which was stellar. This wasn't surprising given their talent, experience and professionalism.

Good story. 👍

Let's just say the narrators brought this story to life. The concept of getting a call by mistake is excellent. Theres good banter and sass from the main heroine. storyline seems to falter towards the end but nevertheless it does have a HEA ending so not bad. If you just need to pass the time then this book is ok because the narrators are excellently sexy to listen to.

amazing narration and story

This is a new author to me and I am so glad I gave her a chance. Of course, I was drawn in by the narrators but this book was just made better by the narrators, the narrators weren't the only good thing happening. Suspense, love, new beginnings. perfection. I may have lost some sleep tonight but it was well worth it

3⭐️

The absolute best thing about this book was the narration, hands down!
Ava Lucas was brilliant and gave it her all and really let you feel all of the emotions with her. Especially chapter 7, which was such a sad chapter but so beautifully read by Ava. Jacob Morgan, I’m pretty sure can do no wrong, at least for me. Him singing is everything 💛
The story itself was ok. A little drawn out with a too naive and feminine writing style for my taste

🎧 Joss and Soren 🎧

A mis-dial leads to a long distance romance, with an element of suspense. An enjoyable enough story but the mystery/suspense element was wrapped up rather too easily, and I kept expecting more to happen. I found the author overly fond of the passive voice, sometimes resulting in strange imagery of disembodied limbs or other body parts.
I loved the trip to my hometown in the north of Ireland, even if the accents sounded like they were from the other end of the country.
Ava Lucas was great as Joss. Would have loved to hear more from Connor Crais. Jacob Morgan was marvellous, as always, and the musical performance from him was an aural treat!
