Publisher's Summary

It seemed more than a little odd that he might meet someone exactly like his ex and on the first night he'd been out since being dumped for bad behavior. If he could get to show her his other side, things might be a little different this time around. But was that likely after what he said in the first two minutes of meeting her?

Jon loved Sally unconditionally, and them keeping him from her was tearing him apart. But they seemed to have complete control over him. How could he possibly turn things around?

Three sisters arrive in a new country. The last thing they expected was to end up on the wrong side of an interrogation table, but does it turn out to be what they'd always hoped for? 

Widowed several years earlier, Annie's mom cajoled her into starting again, but the world seemed so different now, and there were those who were out to separate her from her money. She wanted to crawl back to the comfort of her self-imposed life of a hermit but that wouldn't be fair on those worse off than her. The detective she hires to get to the bottom of the problem is really quite a dish, but she had to remember, he was only working for her. 

Melanie has a schoolgirl crush on Joe Romano, and when he asks her out, she is more than excited. But he lets her down, and she cries all the way home, swearing never to speak to him again. Six years later, their working lives cross paths. Joe has always carried a torch for Melanie and does everything he can to make up for his boyhood stupidity. Is it too late?

Great Short Stories!

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories by Rik Stone. I found each one to be original and satisfying. I so like it how the author was able to write totally different characters and how they were of different ages and walks in life. Bob Story is a new to me narrator. I enjoyed his English voice, but the recording needed some clean up. I will definitely listen to more books by this author.

An Enchanting Walk Down Many Lane!

This a collection of romantic interludes based in different decades, countries and situations with love as the same theme running through them. The one thing in I enjoyed with the Interludes was the ability to listen or read your favourites over and over. In each story we always a beginning and a happy end. I loved the various ages of the each couple, so we know life is not over at thirty. The last one which has Joe Romano in it was a great surprise for me as I was born and grew up in Southend, Essex, England so listening to the story was a great walk down memory lane.
Bob Sterry is the narrator and with his clear English voice he managed to keep my mind in the  stories Rik Stone has woven for our enjoyment. Especially as we popped through different decades and locations.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Rik Stone. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Truly a Romantic Interlude

The Way We Were: Romantic Interludes by Rik Stone is a collection of five different romantic stories.

Sterry the narrator was a fantastic, his voice gave light and vision to the scenes and characters throughout the book.

The short romantic stores where heartfelt and sentimental romantic stories. I so wanted to be a character in this book, the love was simply a reminder that attraction can be subtle and develop into a deep relationship. Each story is short and sweet The romantic interludes are all completely different covering all ages of love, it’s romantic, humorous and an enjoyable listen.

Rik stone’s writing style and the narrator’s tone let us feel the characters emotions, I highly recommend this book

I Need To Get The Book

Rating: 3.5 Stars

This is actually a series of stories which I didn't realize especially after I heard the words "The End" shortly after I started to listen to the book - just a warning so you don't end up with the puzzled face like I did. On a positive note, I did enjoy listening to Mr. Sterry's voice. He helped me imagine some of the scenes as they were going by. On a not so positive note; I heard every swallow and every breath which after a while become very off-putting. I will say, in his defense, I'm not very tech savvy so I don't know if there is anything I could have done to my iPod to get rid of all the unnecessary background noise. At times it got so bad that I stopped listening to the story which I didn't realize until I had that "what did I miss" moment.

I was surprised to find out that our author is a male. Mr. Stone created some very nice vignettes. The ones I could listen to left me wanting more. It made me think of times gone by when romance meant something slightly different. To do this book justice, I think that I need to get an actual copy of the book so my mind can do justice to the work that he has created. And again it could just be my lack of experience with technology that hindered my enjoyment of this audio version. I see he has other books available and will have to check them out - I'm not willing to give up, yet.

I voluntarily reviewed an Audiobook copy of this book
