What a wonderful addition to this series

Any additional comments?

I loved the away the author filled in the blanks with this short and sweet read. The author goes into how the contract of marriage came about for Gemma and Liam. I do have to say I did wonder. The author fills it in nicely. It was nice to get to know Liam family and just how much love his parents have for each other. I did however think the love scene with them wasn’t really needed since it was more of a book about the contract and how Liam felt about this. His sister is something else so full of herself but when it comes down to it really loves her brother. It was nice to see some of the characters from the other stories. With this background it was very easy to fall in love with Liam and Will. This adds so much more to the story of Gemma and Liam.

Ms. Pendergast narration was very good I really had a hard time liking Pia she came across as spoiled but she really wasn’t. I did come to like her when the narrator brought out her true nature. I thought her male voices were great and most of her female one was very good as well. I didn’t really care for Pia voice but as I said she grew on me. I felt the narrator did a wonderful job on the tones putting real emotion into the audio. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. There were no place where the volume changes it stays the same throughout. Her delivery was great and her performance was good. You always knew who was talking and just what they were feeling. It was an enjoyable audio.

I felt the author really added a lot to this series with this short story that really pulled you in giving a very entertaining read that kept you invest and wanting to read the next book in the series.

I enjoyed this short story; the narration was perfect for it.

It’s kind of a story about think before you act weather your 14 or in your 30’s and it doesn't matter the era either.

Thor made a bad choice while out with the Earl and betrothed his son to the Earls daughter.
Pia, Thor’s wife was not having this at all. I love the dynamic between these two.
And in a home with teens you’re going to have eavesdroppers and who don’t always make the best of choices either.

Lily and Liam are brother sister, Noah is Liam’s best friend and lost his parents. Thor has taken him under his wing and Pia wants to mother him. Lily is a little jealous of this relationship because she doesn't really have friends.
All in all like I said a good short story I enjoyed the adult’s perspective and the children’s.
