Where does Joint Venture rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed this book as an audio book. This is the second book I have listened to in this format and found that I enjoyed being able to go about my day’s activities while listening to a wonderful story.


What does Teresa Gail bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I didn't really like the slow, overly sweetness of her voice, and there was not much variation in the tone and depth of the voices.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I enjoyed listening to it as I got ready for the day, ate meals, did house work etc, but was not able to sit and listen to it all at once.


Any additional comments?

The author, while writing a gentle love story, also explores some areas of conflict such as unfaithfulness, stereotyping, moral purity etc. Joint Venture is an easy read/listen and is bound to bring a smile to your face. I will look for other books in this series and books by this author. I gave this book a top rating for its heart warming story as well as its wholesome portrayal of young love.

Matt. I liked how he tried to be a good sportive friend and didn't want his friend to get hurt even though he had always loved her,


Which scene was your favorite?

Definitely the restaurant where she finds Ryan in a lip lock with her best friend, Lydia, I loved how she finally found her backbone and was able to stand up,for herself and start making decisions on her own,
