I adored this book. The main female character, Ísa, is kind and gentle-hearted which is a great amount of love to give, despite never being shown love and attention by her two estranged parents. Instead, she grew up to be the rock for her younger siblings but at the cost of never feeling like the priority to anyone. The main male character, Sailor, is a charming and determined man who saw Ísa when they were younger and it was love at first sight. Both characters are romantics who fall deeply for each other. Add in some quirky supporting characters, such as a best friend who is trying to please her Indian parents by entering into an arranged marriage, or a little sister full of fire who does not let the loss of her legs the defining moment in your life; you have a sweet story full of characters that you care about and want all of them to succeed, be happy, and find their own Happily Ever After.
Listen to a sample of this book before purchasing to see if you like the narrator's voice. It took some getting used to; being that the heroine of the book has an Icelandic accent and the remainder of the characters are New Zealand accents. The narrator flawlessly could move from one accent to the other and deliver both the dialogue and inner thoughts of the character without any confusion. I will certainly listen to more books narrated by Justine O. Keef.

Let me start by saying what a huge fan I am of Nalini Singh. However, this one is nothing like her others. I’ve read & listened twice to each of her Psy/Changeling & Guild Hunter series, loved them. This one was honestly a little boring, no intrigue or excitement. No description of the country except the camping trip. I enjoyed the international characters & I even somewhat enjoyed the narration. The chapter titles threw me each time, I’m sure it would have been funny if I was reading it. I almost stopped twice but didn’t have another book downloaded so I continued. Can’t recommend except that you must try the sample first to get a little idea of where she went here.

I love just about anything Ms Singh produces and this was no exception. However the performance had me in stitches. Ms O’Keefe’s attempt to do a Kiwi accent often came out sounding South African instead! Still loved it overall and the accent wasn’t too distracting a
I cannot get past the butchered kiwi accent. It’s like the Simpsons version of the Australian accent. And definitely not consistent. The character’s inner monologue is a different accent to their speaking one - pick one and stick to it (but do it well!). This is from an Australian.
Might read this instead.
I love these stories but oh! I wish the narrators actually used a Kiwi accent instead of a mix of cockney/Australian.
