Another great book from Georgia

Georgia has penned 2 great strong independent women who both are loving and caring. Unfortunately they allow their pride and stubbornness to almost ruin a really great thing.
the supporting characters are fleshed out nicely and the mother/stepmother adds just enough loving attention that grest moyherd do.

Great book...GB is awesome!!

I am a die hard Georgia Beers fan, so I did not hesitate to get this when I saw it available. To that point, I was not disappointed by this book. I liked both main characters and even some of the secondary characters. The romance was sweet between the two, I could feel the strong connection that was conveyed in the book. It all was a bit faster than I thought but still good nonetheless. The narrator was equally helpful in conveying all the emotions throughout. she did a great job. one thing that bothered me was the narrator. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book and am looking forward to more!

Great story....BAD NARRATOR!

I loved the story. As usual with Georgia's stories I was enveloped in an emotional rollercoaster. It was very hard to get past the narrator. She is very annoying and made it very hard to pay attention. I found myself getting distracted by her valley girl drawn out annoying speach and had to rewind several times to listen to the words again.

Love the story, but...

I have loved everything I’ve heard from Georgia Beers so far. My only issue with this book was the narrator. I wasn’t a fan. It was like every word was drawn out at the end and it just bothered me, as I sometimes focused more on that than the book itself. I did love the story, though!

Worth the purchase, as always.

A very realistic, believable and (most importantly) enjoyable love story. Georgia Beers continues to captivate with in depth characters and raw emotions that not only leaves you satisfied, but wanting more.

A Scent of Romance

Kelsey Petersen moved to Chicago to start a new life. She owns her own shop and is making lots of new friends. She’s having a flirtatious time with a woman she sees at Starbucks and her life is moving forward. Then the complications begin and she has to learn to forgive and ask for forgiveness. Sweet erotic romance and story. Strong performance. Recommend.

a page turner

it was a good story but the reader who narrated the story was in my opinion dry in telling the story which made it difficult to follow the plot.

Decent Lesbian Fiction

This book was entertaining, but I wish they had selected a different narrator. The voice was not quite right. Overall, a great story.

Good story, voice hard to get use too

Didn't care for the voice (country club pompous) and sometimes sounded like talking in to a tin can.

Great Story, Horrible Narration

I really loved this story but from the moment the narration began it was like nails on a chalkboard. I literally had to start the book 3 times. I'm glad I did because first off I bought it and secondly I enjoyed the story.

The problem I had with the narration was that she sounded, pretentious in that almost every line read ended on a down note with a throaty gravelly sound throughout the whole book. Very offputting.

Ok story but ruined by performer

The narrator just ruins this book. The performance is so bad, she reads the intimate scenes as if reading the news. Poor quality and amateur performance which is such a shame as the story itself is quite sweet. I had difficulty listening to this. She does the book no favours!

Ok story, narrators accent is awful

The book is ok and enjoyable but please pleas choose narrators with a better accent. This one sounded like a leftover from legally blonde or some other Superficial Kardashianeque show .. it was grating to listen to
