Publisher's Summary

Alida Dubois has spent her entire life doing what is expected of her. When a $2 million mistake happens under her watch at Global Alliance Benefits Distribution, she is expected to provide the information on how the mistake happened as well as the name of who caused it. Alida explains what happened but refuses to provide the name of who caused it. She impulsively quits instead, thus causing her universe to shift and things to suddenly happen in her favor. She remembers what truly makes her happy and decides she is going to live her life her way.
Jack "The Hammer" Williams is the vice president in charge of figuring out how the $2 million mistake happened. He is used to asking the tough questions and getting the answers immediately. Alida is the first person to refuse to answer him. When she quits he is charged with bringing her back to the company. As he gets to know her, though, he decides he wants her all to himself. Will Jack be included in Alida's new life?

To Thine Own Self Be True.

The title of my review is the essence of this story.So many listeners especially women will relate to the compromises of
a woman on the Corporate ladder to success.Very few are willing to give it up to basically fulfill their emotional needs.

The story is realistic with good character development.

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

Be True to Yourself

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

As I listened to this story, I kept nodding my head as I listened to Alida's experiences working at a large corporation. Falling into a job...getting promoted repeatedly but feeling like a fake on the job...stress, anxiety and sleepless nights... Yeah, been there, done that! Either Ms. Lumas was channeling my life, or she's done her research about what it's like to be an artist in a non-artistic environment. Happily, Alida has the courage to make the break with corporate life, and she finds she can be herself and be valued for who she truly is.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Alida's Way?

The conversation with her mother when Alida announces she's going to make a living as an artist is almost IDENTICAL to the conversation I had with MY mother under similar circumstances.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This is read by the author, and her delivery is just not as smooth as a professional narrator.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Trying to avoid spoilers here... Alida's reaction after the scene on the rock took me by surprise. Was it added to fulfill the "boy loses girl" stage of the classic romance plot?

Any additional comments?

Despite a few flaws, I enjoyed this book, perhaps because it rang so true to (my) life. I was rooting for the lovers and rejoiced in their HEA. It's worth listening again.
