Publisher's Summary

Tormented by self-imposed guilt, Dr. Lena O'Donnell has spent the last nine years in survival mode. Struggling through days that seem to blend together and battling her way through each horrifying night, she's determined that this is what she deserves.... Mason Langley's life is going exactly the way he planned it, until her. A confirmed bachelor and the successful owner of the hottest restaurant to hit Chicago, he never expected to be blindsided by an angry woman in a pair of scrubs. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to shake the doctor, and he finds himself liking the way she makes him feel.
Almost overnight Lena finds her world turned upside down by Mason and the sexual desire they discover together. Slowly she lowers her guard and invites him inside. But when tragedy strikes she begins to believe that sometimes it's better to be alone and safe than to love and lose....

Solid love story with a hint of realism

What made the experience of listening to Exquisite the most enjoyable?

The depth to Masons and Lena's characters. They both had enough going on individually to support spinoff stories but when they came together it was something you wanted to hear more about. Mason wasn't a wuss and didn't act in a predictable manner which was nice.


What other book might you compare Exquisite to and why?

The twisted series because it comes from both the male and female lead characters point of view. It would've been great to have a guy narrate the guys part but it was still pretty good.


Have you listened to any of Mackenzie Cartwright’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but she was good. Liked her adaptation of the characters.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reactions but I loved Mason. He made the story worth it.

Not light and fluffy, very life like!

Sometimes you listen to a story and you say....wow, this could really happen, this is one of those stories. No one fell in love in a moment, no one had it easy....if anything these people had to fight the world and each other for this relationship, and isn't that how love actually is?

Dr. Leena O'Donnel has lived through the death of her sister 9 years ago. The problem is she's not actually living. Sure she gets dressed, goes to work, sort of eats....but really she is just getting through the day so her nightmares can keep her up at night. Don't let people in and they can't leave you is her motto.

Leena's perfectly mundane world is rocked one day when she receives flowers at work from her parents, they do this often, still trying after 9 years to bring their other daughter some peace. The man delivering the flowers is georgeous...and irritating and pushy and called her a freaking princess for crying out loud, so why can't she stop thinking about his eyes?

Mason tries to be a good person, sure he has dated a few women but he's never cruel and tries to be a gentlemen to the fairer sex when at all possible....but with Dr. Leena all bets are off! He can't figure out if he wants to slug her or kiss her, gesh the NERVE of that woman! He was doing a favor for his mother by delivering some flowers while on the way to his REAL job, owner and head chef of a trendy Chicago restraunt, when poof crazy lady with attitude comes up to get the flowers. She's psychotic, good thing she's in the hospital already....so why can't he stop thinking about her?!?!?

This story is full of humor, friendship, love and the bonds that tie us together as human beings. I will be getting book 2 because this writer understands that 30 something's don't act like high schoolers, we may not be bright sometimes with our hearts, but we aren't kids.

Great narration, good voice switches and emotions.
