.... But Not Quite A Masterpiece!
May Contain Spoilers;
Louise delivers another well written plot that's dialogue driven, with no wasted words or unnecessary details! It's an instant love story, that's both sweet and steamy, but the relationship between the characters was a battle of push / pull. I enjoyed both the H/h. Poor Grace, in the past she chose the wrong men, but I felt her character was strong, independent, and well rounded.
Sam's character was more interesting, and reminded me of a Phoenix. He rose above his past, worked hard to build his empire, but was never far from his roots. His character was down to earth, and not the typical billionaire, he wasn't concerned with materialistic things. Due to his past, he had a hard time connecting, and developing relationships with both friends and lovers. However, the more time he spent around Grace, the more he understood his deep seeded need to keep people at a distance.
The ending did feel rushed but overall, I enjoyed the story, and narration. The narration really made this audio, York and Arndt never disappoint. I used my credit, and didn't regret it.

I think Louise Bay just phoned this one in. This just felt like a book written following a formula. This was a nice enough romance with some heat but lacking the substance I've come to expect from Louise Bay. Fortunately, she enlisted two of the best narrators for romance audio. Andi and Sebastian make this story better than it really is.
Worth a reduced price but I don't think I would give a credit for it.

Not a lot I can say really, apart from........I loved this book so much. I've not yet come across a Louise Bay book that I didn't like, I love her characters, her writing and her book covers, 'Park Avenue Prince' is no exception. Both Grace and Max are beautiful people inside and out, they surround themselves with good people. There's no bitching, no lies and no cheating. This book is pretty much a modern day fairytale, a true feel good read that had me hooked from the first chapter. With lots of romance (even though Sam would deny it), a little bit of sadness and some angst, it's my perfect kind of 'go to' story, just what I was in need of. Loved it, loved the narration, as always, Sebastian and Andi are perfect.

I’ve read books by Louise Bay before and loved them. I thought I’d try a new medium and downloaded this to listen to rather than read. The male narrator sounded just like the comedian Rich Hall so I spent a while trying not to picture him as Sam. I don’t know whether I would have enjoyed this more if I’d read it. This is the first time I’ve listened this genre and maybe it just isn’t for me. I found myself rolling my eyes at times when the characters were endlessly procrastinating and maybe if I’d skim read those parts it wouldn’t have been as annoying.
Like with any tale of love there's ups and down but by the end they realise that what they each were looking for and just to afraid to admit to themselves and the World, was someone true and real to take the ultimate jump with.
They both needed saving without really knowing it and found firm but loving ground together and that's what real love is. Where one is weak the other is strong and were you're weak your other half is strong.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and especially the two person narration. They both added something very unique and rewarding to this great book.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great combination of naughty and nice. It's a story of love, belief, loyalty and perseverance. Never ever give up even when the World has seemingly forgotten you or turned it's back.
