I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
OVER THE MIDDLE has those satisfying twists and riddles we come to anticipate in Lauren Landish's books. Not as gritty but every bit as heart-warming in the romance department. I love when a real woman with a tangible body is the love interest. When most romances portray powerful, brawny men, why are they most often paired with flawless, DNA privileged women?
While the story completely absorbed me, I felt a bit cheated out of some gravy, when IMO, the story should have had more meat. Considering his arrogance portrayed at the opening, Duncan's hasty devotion didn't have a strong enough motive. Yes, she was curvy, a nice girl and said no, but so what? I was led to believe he was a real cocky bastard... And the few mentions of his father seemed like stolen instances from a different story. Neither of those two points however, weakened the main points of the story, which was well written and cohesive.
The narration was acceptable. I heard a slight lisp in her voice that I eventually phased out. The male voices sounded disdainful. But her interpretation was professional with good modulation and rhythm.
Worth TWO THUMBS.

Duncan is a talented football player who is arrogant, sluttish, obnoxious, and an a-hole. It is extremely hard to find anything redeeming about him in the beginning of the story. I'm amazed that I actually liked him at the end and here's him on.
Carrie is a student trainer that is matched with Duncan to help him learn to work...and she actually is the reason he becomes a
good guy. It does not happen immediately but he recognizes her as a person of value. I liked the way the story progressed. There is some angst but not to make me uncomfortable, which I hate...this was perfect. I liked hearing of a family from a previous book...that was fun.
The narrator....well Carrie voice fit her perfectly, young and sweet...really liked it. Hated Duncan's voice...disliked him just for his voice...if that is what the narrator was going for it worked...nasally, snotty, and just plain irritating. I got a little use to it...but really hated the voice she used for Duncan.
Definitely worth the listen.
