Lana can't remember a time when she wasn't hopelessly in love with Akira. Even knowing that he viewed her as a kid sister had never helped to dampen her feelings. One night together only made it worse. After seducing Akira, it became apparent that their love affair was hopelessly one-sided, and heartbroken, Lana fled her beloved island paradise. Eight years later, Lana finally returns home, planning to stay briefly, and only for business, but her plans go quickly awry when she runs into the man she could never get over.

Robotic Narration, Thin Storyline.
I really enjoyed reading the Mile High series by the same author. Lilley can write a decent story, peppered with the right amount of provocative erotic scenes.
This novella is not Lilley's best work. The story feels rushed, and yet has aspects that feel skimmed over.
It doesn't help that the narrator appears to be reading the story for the first time. Her inflection is completely off, and she reads the entire story in a very monotonous tone of voice. I don't believe that audio book narrators have to be proficient with accents or voices, but I do enjoy hearing emotion and life in a story...this was like listening to someone reading a school textbook for the first time.
The characters could have been fleshed out more - though then I imagine it couldn't have been called a novella.
A different narrator could make this a more enjoyable listen.
When I listen to a book through Audible, I expect a certain level of professionalism. I don't think the narrator has to "ham it up", but they need to sound as though they at least enjoy their job, and like reading books.
Snoozeable and Unlikeable
