Passion Builds in an Easy to Love Romance

I absolutely fell in love with Vanessa and Dan. Vanessa definitely proved that she is a woman to be respected from the very start of this book, and her personality just won me over. (I can only hope to have the grace she shows with that beginning incident!) Dan is a super hottie with a bit of a rep, but he's such a good guy. the interactions between the two characters are just so great. I really like to that for the most part no one's trying to get away with anything. The author does let each characters mystery get unveiled slowly and honestly. the pacing in this story is excellent, the characters are incredibly well-written and likeable. Passion is present, but not overpowering. (The secondary characters are great too) The narrator did an excellent job as well. Many times the narration can suffer when voicing men and women, but I found the entire performance to be quite strong. The writing and the voice work paired perfectly. this is a voluntary review of an audiobook gifted by the author and narrator. I will certainly be picking up the next audiobook in this series. This one is a total recommendation, and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Loved This Story

Would you listen to A Building Passion again? Why?

No. Therenarebtoo many others to listen to. But I will listen to the next one in the series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Toss up between Bruce and Nate. Although they were secondary characters the story would have been very empty without them.

What about Kelley Hazen’s performance did you like?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when Daniel confronted Joe and his wife gave him some hard truths.

Any additional comments?

I got this ARC via audiobook boom.

Modern and Trendy with Southern American Charm.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I particularly like how the story reflects the ups and downs of life. It is a romance that is in touch with reality. The characters are flawed and therefore more believable and likeable. There are suggestions of Daniel's history throughout the plot that make you question his choices (and leave the reader slightly on edge) though it is really hard not to like him. Vanessa is the perfect balance of strong/independent and vulnerable as she rebuilds her life post breakup.

To be honest, the story started a little slow and I wasn't sure I would enjoy it. Initially I wasn't convinved by Kelley Hazen's narration either. However as the story progressed, I realised that her style matched the setting and characters. She brought Daniel and Vanessa to life and gave the supporting characters and descriptions texture. Like I said, I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Sandra Kyle delivers a HEA and very neatly ties all the issues in perfect bows. She has written a story that is true to the Savannah setting while being modern and saavy as well. I am looking forward to the other books in this series. I just hope we get to revisit with these characters again.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
