Publisher's Summary

Three best-selling steamy and sweet New Zealand rugby romances.
Just for Fun
What happens in Fiji stays in Fiji. Except when it doesn't.
Emma Martens and Nic Wilkinson have no history together except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore except the most important thing of all. Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.
Just My Luck
When roommates Kristen Montgomery and Ally Villiers head to New Zealand for a year's working holiday, Kristen hopes she can reboot her life after a disastrous marriage. Ally's just along for the adventure. They both get more than they bargained for after an outing to a climbing gym introduces them to the new captain of the All Blacks and his teammate. One man's perfect. The other isn't. Sometimes the course of true love runs smooth. Other times it's a very bumpy ride indeed.
Just Not Mine
Destiny can sneak up on you. Or it can smack you in the face.
Hugh Latimer's coping with a few problems just now. A broken hand, missing the All Blacks' European rugby tour, and a half brother and sister who are playing havoc with his love life. Instead of packing down in the scrum, he's driving the carpool to ballet - or forgetting it's his turn. When he hears his neighbor wailing out bad pop in the wee hours, it's the last straw. Or maybe not, because his new neighbor is a Maori soap star with issues of her own.

Any additional comments?

I am a huge fan of Rosalind James and her Escape to New Zealand series. I have read all of the book in the series. This was my first time listening to any of them on Audible. How amazing that it was three books in a set, not just one! Claire Bocking brings to life books 4-6 in this series. The country of New Zealand comes to life, along with the voices of each character. Each book had its own unique sound and could stand alone on its own, but together as a set they are even better. There are children that are central characters in two of these books and Claire is able to narrate their voices without sounding like a condescending adult. I did wonder how the steam factor of some of the scenes would translate to narration, but I wasn't disappointed. I think you need to listen for yourself and come to your own judgement.

I am so impressed with the narration of these books. I am going to have to go and listen to more in the series, even though I have already read the books in print!

Truly Impressed with the Narration

My favorite of the 3 books is Just For Fun, but the other books are also very good. You start reading or listening to the books and you are immediately drawn into the story. Fully entrenched, whisked away to another place, another life.

The Escape to NZ books are unique in that the romantic characters really seem to like each other. There is not a great deal of angst between the characters. They have conversations, which are often humorous. Their dialogue is engaging. They have a strong chemistry, and the sex scenes are not only sexy, but romantic.

Claire Bocking does an amazing job with the narration. Listening to her, you manage to forget that only one person is telling the tale. She manages to give each character their own voice, personality, identity. It is definitely not boring. I have listened to other audio books and find my mind wandering. This didn't happen when reading the same book, so it is more than just a well written book that makes the narration work.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

I can say in all honesty that I truly enjoyed both the print and audio books. Between the great stories and the wonderful narration, you cannot go wrong with this set of books.
