This was my first time listening to these narrators and hearing anything by this author. I really liked the characters. The story sort of grabs you from the start. Both Beverly and Dane were very interesting characters, as were all of the side characters. The writing was engaging. At times, Beverly only slightly annoyed me blaming herself for everything, and her very reasonable reactions on being insecure. I mean, seriously. If the guy can't be bothered to call or send a text to just say "Hi" while being gone for weeks at a time, moving on and not waiting around shouldn't have been a second thought. It's not insecure to not be willing to wait around to see if he can be bothered to check in. Checking in is common courtesy and the actions of a guy that's into you. And, when she called him, he acted like he couldn't be bothered. No one is that busy. But, I still really liked her character otherwise. Dane is just clueless and not used to communicating and being considerate where women are concerned. They were both still likeable characters despite their flaws.
Once, they'd resolved their differences, the story did seem to drag a little for me, added events feeling a tiny bit contrived. However, the narration in those scenes went from fantastic to superb.
Aiden Snow and Megan Tusing did a really great job right from the beginning. And, I'm always wary of these dual narrations. When they're good, they're good. When they aren't...well they just aren't. But, luckily this duo worked out nicely. But, Aiden Snow out did himself when it got to some pretty intense and emotional scenes. Just wow! Was already impressed and then was further impressed with the depth of the performance. Overall a very satisfying listen.

Maybe it was the gripping story....maybe it was my hormones.....or maybe.....just maybe it was the male narrator's voice that gave me butterflies and turned my emotions into a big pile of mush!! 😘 Yep, I love great voices.
I listened to the first book (Incumbent) so I was interested to know more about this story. This series focuses on the Prescott family and this story (Gripped) features Dane and his love interest Beverly. It is an emotional, heartwarming, witty, sexy and smart story that had me hooked from the start.
Both narrators did a fabulous job with this book. Quite often, when there is a dual POV story, the woman's voice doesn't measure up to the man's. Not in this case! Both Aiden Snow and Megan Tusing were outstanding!
Note: This book does have detailed sex scenes and some swearing so I recommend only to Adults. 😉
