Publisher's Summary

Simone Oliver prides herself on being a realist and a cynic. A brilliant set designer for a Manhattan theater company, she thrives in the background and is perfectly comfortable in jeans, Chuck Taylors, and a paint-smeared T-shirt. That is, until Zach Hammond, the award-winning (and sexy-as-hell) British director, turns the spotlight on her. He's clearly captivated by her and won't take no for an answer - but Simone is determined to maintain her position that love's not worth the risk.
A hopeless romantic who can quote Shakespeare on a whim, Zach has spent his life center stage, surrounded by world-famous actors and royalty. But nothing he's seen can compare to what Simone can create. Before long, he finds himself as mesmerized by her brash beauty as he is by her work, and he's determined to seduce her stubborn heart.
But while the two may have been successful at relegating romance to the wings in New York, when their production moves to a centuries-old Irish castle in County Clare, there may be just enough magic to give true love the curtain call it deserves.

Not my favorite

My least favorite book I've "read" in a while. Loved the first one. Hoping the 3rd one will be better.

Warning! Narrator is HORRIBLE.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I stopped listening a few times and read the Kindle version, then I steeled myself to finish listening so I could warn other readers about the bad job the narrator made of this book.

What other book might you compare Nothing Like Love to and why?

The story was fun, the people and places appealing and attractive. Author's other books are fun -- like this one -- a chick lit theme.

What didn’t you like about Emily Durante’s performance?

Not much. Her male voices were terrible. They sounded like they had colds and the hero's British accent was abysmal. Truly horrible.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A narrator who could handle the hero's masculine British accent. He didn't sound anything like the hero the author described.

Any additional comments?

I won't bother with any other books narrated by Emily Durante. I'll read them instead. I don't care if they only have American accents. She can't carry off a male voice. I think she needs long term professional coaching and training before she attempts another.
