I really liked this story, and the interplay between the two main characters. Unlike a lot of romance books I've read, I felt like they were on equal footing, especially their intelligence and sense of humor.
The two narrators really captured the flirty banter very well - and juggled a LOT of character voices... the sex toy scene with all the women was especially tour de force. And that male voice was smart and sexy... I could listen to him anytime. ;-)

Would you listen to Save the Date again? Why?
Absolutely! It was a very enjoyable story. It covered all of my wants in a good romance novel/trilogy. It begins with friendship, charming whitty banter, it has drama, laughter and love. The story is full of everything, the couple, the friends, the family. If a story is well written its worth repeating.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Save the Date?
When Aiden gives her the ultimatum! I mean at that point in the book she already turned him down and you kind of sit back and think where will this go? So Aiden does this huge favor for her and she gets mad at him and he says "Either you accept what I did as a favor or as a kind gesture or you agree to marry me it's that simple". I mean you see the depths of his love starting to grow and he makes these gestures and she is just all about the business end of the deal and doesn't even give it a thought that he might want to try and make this a life commitment. I hated how Lilly didn't see the grand gestures he was making. I mean he gave her his mothers ring to wear and she says no I can't you should save it for the real thing. I guess from hers perspective she was being honorable but from his perspective he wanted to try to make it real.
Have you listened to any of Craig Jessen and April Grace Lowe ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, both of them are new to me. The style of narration to me is the best I have ever listened to. I always said to my husband, you know it would be nice if the males could do the male voices and the females do the female voices and if they could read it like a play. That is exactly how it sounds. It changes the whole dynamic of the story because it's being performed and it is like you are seeing a play in your mind. I guess it makes it more meaningful and true to life!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes absolutely because I couldn't wait to see how books 2 and 3 were going to progress.
Any additional comments?
It was a little aggravating that he did not immediately think of Lilly as the perfect candidate to be his wife. I mean you saw the moment he was taken with her, he saw immediately that she was in a financial jam but yet get continued to date right in front of her no less. That bothered me.
