Since this consists of two books and two different narrators, this isn't an easy review to write. These books are not big on action or angst, so they're great for someone who wants fluffy romance. It's well-written on a technical standpoint, but I felt let down by how easily the issues were resolved. Despite personal tastes in novels, I wish life could be that easy.
In the first book, I thought there should have been more conflict with the parents and Jacob's aunt. I enjoyed it up until they the aunt came into the picture, and then it was just too easy. On the other hand, some people really prefer that.
The production quality was good, but it took me a long time to adapt to Jason P. Hilton, because his voice is deep and husky. I know a lot of people will love that, but it doesn't fit the characters on the cover. There were times when I couldn't tell who was talking.
In the second book, I liked the opening. It held my attention right up until the big secret is revealed... and then it was too easy again. Just like in the first book, Aria Grace introduces characters in this one who can take the story to the next level (like Jessica) and then it just doesn't happen.
I really enjoyed Michael Ferraiuolo's performance. I felt like his voice fit the characters, I could tell the characters apart, and the pacing was good.
Overall, it wasn't bad at all. In fact, it is very different from most books, because there is very little conflict. I recommend this to people who want a short, angst-free romance. The chemistry was well-done and plenty believable.

This is my favorite of the series. I really think Shane and Alex work beautifully together, I love the way they meet and their relationship grows so perfectly - it's very well done. The story behind the baby is creative and unique, and the sex is Aria Grace hot as always! Bravo.
Also, I did the audio edition and this narrator (Jason P. Hilton) was new to me but I really liked him. He has a nice, deep voice and did a great job distinguishing the characters. I'll definitely look for more by him.
That is definitely one of the most attention grabbing opening scenes I've read in a long while. The whole way through the story I kept wondering how Jamie was going to overcome that!
As with all the stories in this series, the story is very creative. I like the connection Reed makes with Jamie and I was rooting for them the whole way through.
I did the audio version of this one and Michael Ferraiuolo's beautiful narration was perfect for this one.
What did you like most about Mile High Romance Box Set?
Aria Grace knows how to craft a story that keeps you wanting to know what happens next. I found myself rooting for the characters. I enjoyed the gentle style although I felt both stories reached their conclusion quite quickly, but that might be because I wanted more!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Out of the two books Jamie and Shane were my favourites they were the ones who had to grow during the story. Jamie more than Shane.Book1: Shane is inexperienced almost sheltered. He comes to Denver to live openly. Because of the way it's written Shane's in experience comes across as seeming younger than he is. Book 2: Jamie is young at the start of the book and naive. He makes a mistake that sets the course for his future. We meet him next in Denver getting by as best he can.Of the two Jamie has to overcome more to meet his mr right, so he is my overall favourite.There were some characters that
What about Michael Ferraiuolo and Jason P. Hilton ’s performance did you like?
I felt Jason P. Hilton has a lovely voice, it draws you in to the story but you have to work hard to differentiate between Alex and Shane speaking, the author helpfully has each chapter from a character's point of view but if you stop listening In between it can take a while to connect to which view point you are listening to. Also because I had the impression that Shane was a lot younger than Alex (I don't think he is ) the deep voice didn't seem to work for Shane. But I think I'm being unreasonable in that view. Michael Ferraiuolo is really good at characterisation. I thought he had Jamie spot on and it was easy to tell who was speaking.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I could I would, however I listen when I travel on the train to work. Wonderful escapism.
