Where does Forever and a Day rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very high. Already a steady fan of Jill Shalvis, and I really enjoyed this story and the narrator's voice/interpretation. This is the sixth of six Lucky Harbor stories (rumors abound there'll be more) and is a satisfying conclusion the series as we know it. Of the "Chocoholic" trio, this ranks right after "Lucky in Love" (still my favorite story) and before "At Last."
What did you like best about this story?
Regardless of the love story, it reveals the struggles of a working dad with sole custody of a child, a demanding career field, the pains of dealing with an irascible sibling, and, thankfully, a man who didn't have mommy or daddy issues clouding his story line.
Have you listened to any of Erin Bennett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
She also read "At Last" by Jill Shalvis and reads well, pleasant on the ear, reads the male voices without unnecessary affectation.
I still think Suehla El Attar (Books 3 and 4 of Lucky Harbor series) manages to vocalize Jill Shalvis' writing best, but Ms. Bennett's work is great. Still am disappointed Books 1 and 2 haven't been re-recorded - cannot stand the narrator of those two. Might I recommend Audible coordinate Ms. Bennett revisit Books 1 and 2 of Lucky Harbor so they might be more palatable to the ear?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, it's a great distraction to laundry, lawn work, dishes, cooking, ad nauseum.
Any additional comments?
As with any romance novel and the inherent sexual nature of the genre, mightily recommend earbuds versus speakers on the laptop. :-)

I Debated for a long minute on whether to get this book or not because Erin Bennett is the narrator (same as the previous book) and I really disliked her performance on that previous book. But a Jill Shalvis book is as irresistible as a warm brownie. This story just melted my heart like hot fudge. It was sweet, sexy and believeable. I can't believe the chocaholics trilogy is over! I sure hope there are more Lucky Harbor stories to come.
I am happy to report that Ms. Bennett got significantly better as a narrator. I still think that there isn't much difference between female and male characters (voices) but she did add the intensity and emotion that the story required. I really enjoyed the whole story, fell in love with that little Jedi warrior, the annoying puppy and the fabulous ending!! I highly recommend it!
