Publisher's Summary

Lindsey Hilliard flees her charmed life in New York, searching for answers after her fiancé's betrayal fills her with self-doubt. Unfortunately, her rented Malibu home is next door to Levi Hardy, the sexy but insufferable man who humiliated her years ago.
Hardened by a grim past he keeps concealed, Levi prefers maintaining a comfortable distance from folks, especially a nosy princess like Lindsey. But then a motorcycle collision brings him to his knees, forcing him to accept her assistance with his recovery. Sparks begin to fly when the woman who doesn't believe in herself teaches the cynic how to have faith in others. Levi realizes his body will recover, but his heart won't if Lindsey returns to the ex who wants her back.
In the biggest gamble of his life, Levi teaches her to trust her own voice, and hopes she'll use it to say good-bye to her past and hello to a future with him.

Great Book ... narration, only average.

What made the experience of listening to In the Cards the most enjoyable?

The story is perfect! It's contemporary romance but with quite an interesting premise that sets it apart from others in the genre.


Any additional comments?

I don't really like male narrators and male narrators doing female voices make me gag. Amy Rubinate was great. Will Damron I struggled with. The book is told from alternate POVs with both narrators doing both male and female voices. Might have been better if they had Amy doing all the dialogue for Lindsey and Will doing all the dialogue for Levi. With the narration handled by both of them depending on whose POV it was at the time.

Good premise

I like Amy Rubinate and that was one reason I ordered this book, the trouble for me was the narration. When I read that there are two narrators (man and woman) I expect the man to read the man's narration and the woman to read the woman's narration, that is not what happened with this book. In this book, every other chapter was in the person of one of the characters and the narrator read the entire chapter. It took a lot away from the story, in my opinion.

Other than that, it was a pretty good story, with a unique premise. I think I would like it much better if I had read the book and if the story moved along a little more quickly.
