Wonderful romance in an idealic scene.
I want to go to Paradise Cove. This is touching romance of a beautiful talented dancer with low self-esteem who meets a good man that wants to pursue his dream of becoming a playwright. I love the family dynamics. I voluntarily reviewed this audio book after receiving an advanced copy.

Here we are with my review for Book 3 from the „Paradise Cove” series. I would have wanted to be the book I most enjoyed, but I am still a big fan of Book 1.
„Play Right by Me” is the story of Brittany, the last of the three sisters owning Paradise Cove resort. After being deceived by her boyfriend and manager, she returns home pregnant, hoping to heal her heart next to her family. She meets Ashley Jordon Chase, who books a room for a month, hoping to find inspiration to write a play. Chase’s kind words help her go through losing her baby and so a beautiful friendship is born. Definitely this is different than the other two stories and I couldn’t wait to see if the rebellious sister would settle next to her sisters or if she will pursue her dreams elsewhere.
The relationship between our main characters starts off quite nice and normal, but when Brittany makes her intentions to sleep with him more than clear, Chase pushes her away. He is the maturity she does not yet hold. His intentions are more than honorable, while she is a wild spirit looking for a short time of fun. The image we have of her from the other two books is cleared in this last part. We are also offered an understanding of why she is or was acting like that.
To be honest, I did not like her that much. She seemed a little slutty. The guy wanted to maintain her dignity, yet she feels insulted the first time he refuses her advances. Also, I noticed the same tendency to appreciate designer clothes and good money. My entire appreciation for the way the author has built the relationship between the sisters and their mother. The constant support they always have for one another is something that should exist in any family.
The narration was quite ok, though there were moments where it felt a little overreacted. Rita Page did a great job anyway and it was nice to listen to her voice. The accent he used for Chase was also a job well done.
All in all, I think this is an ok book. As I was mentioning, the first book in the series is definitely my favorite one, but I cannot say I disliked the other two. I am going with a 3.5 (4) stars for “Play Right by Me” and I am looking forward for more stories by the same author and, why not, narrated by the same narrator.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Patrice Wilton. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
