Publisher's Summary

In Tempting Fate by Jane Green, Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for 18 years. They have two teenaged daughters; they have built a life together. So why does 43-year-old Gabby feel like she has only three more minutes left of youth? Why do her friends so desperately try to hang on to their attractiveness? And why does she ever even look at the handsome guy - 10 years younger - at the other end of the bar one night?
Gabby is the last person to have an affair - a physical one, at least. But Matt makes her feel sparkling, fascinating - something she hasn't felt in years. Surely there's no harm in continuing a long-distance friendship? Surely there's no harm in an emotional affair?
As Gabby steps ever deeper into the allure of attraction and attention, things turn perilous. If she makes one wrong move, she could lose everything - and find out what really matters most.

Can't go wrong with Green

I almost always enjoy Jane Green's books. and this one is no exception. Good story, great characters, and overall well done. My only (slight) complaint is that Jane should leave the narration to someone else. She's not terrible, but I have heard better. Overall an enjoyable listen.

Self Narration is not always the best idea

What disappointed you about Tempting Fate?

I really really did not enjoy Jane Green's style of narration. All of the characters have the exact same voice, which by the way, is so boring and almost like listening to someone whispering. I guess I am spoiled by the narrators I usually enjoys such as Jilly Bond, Gabra Zackman, Amanda Ranconi, Orlagh Cassidy, Suzy Aitchison, Kim Hicks. All of these narrators I think do amazing jobs and I have started purchasing books based on their participation. I should have listened to the sample. I will take the other reviewers advice to speed up the pattern to 1.5 to see if that helps.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jane Green again?

Yes, if she does not narrate it

Would you be willing to try another one of Jane Green’s performances?
