My biggest hang ups on an audible book are 1) how a female narrates a male voice and 2) can I distinguish when they switch between characters. 3) accents. Lacy Laurel did a great job. I have no complaints to her Enzo voice and she did a wonderful job distinguishing between the switch in characters. If I had one critic, it's a small one. She did a wonderful Brazilian accent but I didn't really get a southern vibe to her JL character. Overall, it's not something that affected my enjoyment of the story.
90% of my love for this story rests all on Enzo. I loved him. He was such a sweetheart. He never gave up on JL, constantly asking her out when she kept turning him down. I love his tenacity for when he wanted something but he was not over the top with it. He truly was a sweetheart and he would have charmed me out of everything if I met this guy in real life.
I don't know what the heck is wrong with JL for turning Enzo down for almost a year. She's cray cray. You do learn about her past and the reason she put up walls. It is sad and does explain her hesitancy so I was glad when she finally let him in. For what she has been through, Enzo is the perfect man for her to end up with.
Do to the cover and title of this book, I really expected this to be heavy on the MMA, however it's not. He talks about it being something he loves and he trains at a club but we don't actually get a fight until the very end. It wasn't the main focus of the story if that is what you are expecting. I have not read the previous titles in the series and maybe they are more heavy on the sport.
Enzo and J.L. have quite a road, but what a journey. The writing is excellent and I loved getting to know the characters. The narration is solid, but sometimes the Texan J.L. felt a little more Southern, but she does a great job. This is a voluntary review of a gifted copy of the audiobook.
