I'm sorry for harping on Ms. Craden, but she totally ruined this series for me. In this book particularly, she managed to turn KA's characters' quirks turned into incredibly annoying characteristics that made me what to skip sections. Yes, I believe this is the narrator's fault because I have no trouble reading the book. This series could have shined with a different narrator. Normally, I listen to KA's books on a regular basis, but I have a feeling that I'll pass on these books.

with a maybe there will be another book in the series and I am totally ok if it ended here. I don’t really feel the need for more I think we got all we could out of this series.
I really enjoyed the story between Belle and James/Jack it was emotional and sweet and I like the Alpha male side but the sweet side too. It really was a well-rounded story and I am glad I read it.
There HEA felt like it needed to be the last, because of how long they waited for each other.
Now for the narration I don’t know what it is about Abby’s voice I don’t like. Whether it is her tone or what but I find listening to books she has narrated so difficult. I love her male voice if that is any conciliation. She did a great accent too.
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Loved every single minute of this audio book, definitely earned 5stars from me , couldn't put it down .
Would you try another book written by Kristen Ashley or narrated by Abby Craden?
Yes by Kristen Ashley, I'm a huge fan, have read this book and loved it. Sadly I won't buy anything narrated by this performer as her attempt at various accents is truly awful. The upper class English male was laughable and very hard to understand at times (I'm English, and went to boarding school so I have plenty experience with this type of accent) and the upper class English female voice, while easier to understand than their male counterparts, were awful too. I bulk purchased 4 titles by this author and narrator, am only part way through this book and already tempted to see if Audible will accept a return of them all as the narration is totally spoiling the story for me. Gutted as I was really looking forward to listening to some old favourites.
How could the performance have been better?
Ms Craden has a perfectly lovely speaking voice but whoever allowed the attempts to replicate various British accents for is narration ought to be shot - dreadful. I would have enjoyed listening to the performer's own voice,with perhaps small variance to pitch and tone for the various characters as I have heard in other performances for this author for example Susannah Jones narrating the Rock Chick series. Ms Jones managed to produce recognisable voices for various characters without these almost comically bad impersonations. So disappointed.
Could you see Lucky Stars being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
I'd love to see this story as a movie. Not sue who I'd pick to star in it, but as long as they had authentic voices I'd be happy :)
