Kerry
After David's betrayal, the last thing I wanted to do was stay in Kansas. So I traded in my cheating husband for a one-way ticket to the land of gondolas, cobbled streets and...sexy daring Italian men kissing me in doorways? Just one...one in particular....
Luca
I'm used to it. Fast cars, glitzy galas, and a few knockout supermodels on each arm. What I'm not used to is the bronze beauty I caught reveling in the sunlight. There's something about the way she clings to me when I save her that makes me never want to let her go....

Good Writing - Listen Needs Work

The story itself is good. Luca and Kerry are likable, the backstory is interesting, and the dialogue is believable. It was a well-written, fun romp in Italy with an HEA and a cute epilogue. Unfortunately, the listen does not do the writing justice, as it was in desperate need of editing.

Editing: I do not know whether these were mistakes published in the written work, narrator error or production. The use of "woman" instead of "women:" "I knew a hundred WOMAN," "..things that other WOMAN use to make THEMSELVES look good," "Most, if not all, of the WOMAN I was used to dating," "These WOMAN, these parties…" Also: "His QUESTION didn't make me uncomfortable. Instead, THEY did the opposite," "Passer bys" instead of passers by. Also: The narrator repeats words and phrases occasionally, but but no one edited out the repetitions. These are simple corrections that should've been made prior to release.

Narration: Eli Walker has a pleasant voice and does a good job with female voices and an OK job with male voices. Sadly, poor pacing made it impossible for any subtle inflection of words read to be "felt" how they were written, and she sometimes amped up the speed to where there didn't seem to be any punctuation. (It reminded me of that movie where the dad is racing the stroller through the zoo so he can say he took the kid to see everything so he can get to his business meeting.) Mispronunciations: Adonis. gondola, vestiges, mischievous.

Bottom line: I really liked the book and would listen again to work by this talented author. I would also give the narrator another try, even though this wasn't perfect. She has great potential IF she will just S L O W D O W N. Breathe. Read with precision and enunciate each word. If unsure how to pronounce something, Google it.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review. The rating is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.

- Erin "Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not."

Just in Time

The narrating for the audiobook was not very good. It was unclear and rushed. The storyline was okay. After I hear it I wanted my money back.
