What a awesome story of two people so different but yet so much alike when they come together sparks fly and love happens with some trying times in between. There is so much fun and laughter in this book but at the same time so much sadness, lose and confusion. Joss has lost so much from the home away from home she misses so much but what she misses more is her mother and the love her whole family shared. Now it is just her, her sister and father who are trying to find peace in a world where they have lost so much. Ben is handsome, use to women falling for him but he is very caring. What both he and Joss have in common is shyness, a feeling over life being too much and trying to work out things in their lives.
Ms. Wynne does and outstanding narration with her character voice that give deep sexy tones to her males and lovely sweet sexy ones to her females. Her emotions are wonderful she has such a caring tone but can still reach those angry and lost ones very well. She brings true emotions to the listen that pull you in giving you a story you can buy into making it real. I loved how she brought out the fathers off the wall humor really making it a fun listen. She showed how truly caring each family member was and how so how painful it was to lose those you love. There are no background noises, no repeating of words, and no volumes changes just a truly enjoyable clean and clear listen. Her performance was outstanding which made this a win, win listen for me.
The author gives a compelling story of passion from different points on many different things. The love and lost of a dear mother, as well as the country they all adored. Each feel the loss in a different way but each are trying their best to support the other. I loved the father his off the wall humor matches my own so it was very easy to relate to him. Joss’s sister was fun but you sure could feel her pain. I have to say my heart went out to Joss the most because she is torn from the loss of her mother, supporting her family and still wanting to go back and support her adopted family. She sure does love it in the small village in New Guinea. She isn’t ready for love and thinks Ben is a play boy being able to pick any women he wants. Ben isn’t really into the one and only love but finds her very attractive and wants to get to know her better. He isn’t ready for her to turn him down and he isn’t giving up. He falls fast and hard, I really like how he deals with it all and do love his pigeon and how that came to be. I had many laughs over their time together. His origami takes my breath away and what he uses it for really is great. I really loved the buildup of this romance it was steady but easy. The two families help work it out with a few surprises along the way. I loved their day trip and how that plays out. Ben does have a few tricks up his sleeve. I loved the humor all throughout the book, the plot was outstanding, the characters even better.
Bottom line this was an outstanding read that really holds your attention pulling you in from the first page, keeps you smiling and laughing as well as giving you some sorrow and pain. This is the only audio the author has at this time I sure hope there will be more. I enjoyed this so much I bought the other two in the series. Now to just find the time to read them, they do sound as awesome as this one. I believe most people will truly enjoy the read. If you love humor it is a must. I do hope you will pick it up and you enjoy it as much as I did.

Paper Love, Book 2 in the Chicago Christmas series by Aubrey Wynne is standalone, wholesome romance. It's sweet and innocent, though Ms. Wynne does add a twist what with some of the things that Joss and Her family are dealing with. Ben is Joss' best friends brother and he completely falls for Joss. Joss is super sweet and dealing with family loss and also has her heart closed off due to an unworthy ex. Without giving away any spoilers, Ben does everything almost perfectly to win Joss' heart. You'll obviously get your HEA at the end of the book. I took at star off because everything felt a little too perfect and I felt that the story was fairly predictable, at least to me.
Sara Sheckells did a good job voicing the various male and female characters. She even had unique voices for Joss, Becky and Laura, as well as Ben and Dan, which made listening and differentiating the characters even easier. If you're looking for a vanilla short and sweet romance, I think you'll enjoy this one. Also worth noting, the series is A Chicago Christmas, though the story doesn't focus or really revolve around Christmas, so it's a good listen anytime of the year! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
