I've read and listened to most of Sarina Bowen's books and I love them all, but I think this may be my favorite. I love the progression of the relationship between Willow and Dane, from when they meet - stranded together on the side of the road during a snowstorm - to the end of the book. I've seen that some people have issues with the characters - for example, the way that Dane acts and the way that Willow is down on herself - but this is a story where both characters have lots of baggage to overcome and some big decisions to make. The ending is great.I love both of these characters and I love what they bring to the story. I love the secondary cast too, including Willow's best friend Callie, who is featured in a later book in this series.
One thing that I especially love about this audiobook is that it is so easy to listen to. There are no instances where I feel like I needed to rewind in order to keep characters straight or re-listen to plot points. The cast is just the right size and the plot is perfectly paced and moves along nicely. I just turned the audiobook on and listened straight through, and that made for a wonderful listening experience for me.
Also: the narrators are great! I especially love Joe Arden as Dane. They both did a great job, but I think Dane's scenes with the bad behavior and bad attitude were voiced particularly well.

So far I have loved ever Sarina Brown book I’ve read, but this one was a disappointment. I just couldn’t become invested in the male character. He was flat, and unappealing.
Joe Arden did an excellent job on his performance but Maxine Mitchell’s performance made me cringe. The way she emphasized and drew out the end of every sentence was very distracting and irritating.
It’s worth a listen if you adore all of her other books, but If this is your first go at one of her books, I’d pass and choose another. It really doesn’t reflect the perfection of her other stories.

I’m a huge fan of Sarina so it’s no surprise that I really enjoyed this one, Sarina is able to write the most swoony guys and heroines that don’t annoy me !
I listened to the audio version of this and as usual it didn’t disappoint the narrators being this book to life making listening a really enjoyable experience !
My first story written by Sarina Bowen but it was well written and romantic. I will certainly look to read more books of hers.
Bowen also had the Best Male/Female Narraters (in my opinion) in Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell. They bring a story to life, making the reader feel as though they are in the story, not somebody looking in.
A definite 5 stars all round from me.
