Publisher's Summary

A bad boy, a good girl, and ice cream collide in the best little wedding town in America!
Dahlia Mallard has finally found her destiny - running an ice cream shop in Bliss, the happiest bridal town in the Midwest. Problem is, her heart is bigger than her bank account, and she needs a serious influx of cash to get through the winter. Her last-ditch effort? Convincing country music superstar Billy Brenton to commit to attending her risqué flavor-tasting event to boost ticket sales. But the closest she can get to Billy is his drummer, the womanizing Mikey Diamond.
Mikey loves the ladies, and he makes no secret of it. But he's not such a fan of this town devoted to weddings, love, and marriage. And he's even less of a fan of people using him to get to Billy. When circumstances land Mikey in Dahlia's house, though, all his caution - and all his interest in any other single ladies - flies out the window. Dahlia is quirky and funny and, unlike his usual women, she doesn't tolerate any of his baloney. But when Mikey discovers that Dahlia, too, is using him to get close to Billy, will he take the chance to be her hero instead, or will he revert to his man-whore ways?

Would you consider the audio edition of Smittened to be better than the print version?

Yes! I love listening to an audiobook, especially if I have read the book in the recent past because I concentrate on every single word in a way that I don't when I read. I tend to skim while reading so listening to the story adds a new and very enjoyable experience.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was the hero of the book, Mikey. Every time Karen White portrayed Mikey's southern accent I got a tingling up and down my spine. Mikey is a shameless flirt at first glance but he's got a lot more going on under that devil-may-care attitude that I was very drawn to, just as Dahlia is.

What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration of Karen White is awesome! She's got Mikey's southern accent down pat and every time I heard her vocal version of his endearment, Sweetpea, it gave me goosebumps and made me laugh out loud. I think Karen's narration is the perfect accompaniment to Jamie Farrell's style of romantic comedy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The regret in Mikey's voice as he's recalling the fire that destroyed the house he and Billy were staying in made me ache with compassion for both of them.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook combination of Jamie Farrell's writing and Karen White's narration is as decadent as the sexy flavors of Dahlia's ice cream.

Smittened by Jamie Farrell

Would you listen to Smittened again? Why?

Probably not. Once I've read / listened to the rest of the series I will be moving on to the rest of my TBR list

What other book might you compare Smittened to and why?

Matched. Also by Jamie Farrell. Similar characters in each. The stories are told concurrently.

Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This performance was very similar to that of hers in Matched.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I nearly did. :)

Any additional comments?

SMITTENED is another cute story in Jamie Farrell's Misfit Brides series. This novella features Mikey Diamond, the drummer and best friend of Will Truitt from MATCHED, and a self-proclaimed man-whore who never expected to find the woman of his dreams is the town of Bliss. Falling in Love, anywhere, was not on his agenda.

Dahlia inherited The Milk Duct, an ice cream shop just off the aisle in Bliss from her Aunt Agnes and she loves running it and creating new ice cream flavors. She's a little ditzy, but has the kindest heart. She takes in strays, including Mikey after his house burns down from a space heater accident. She's sweet, but she speaks her mind and that fascinates Mikey. She captures his attention completely, even when he's supposed to be keeping an eye on Will.

Fun story. Interesting characters. Happy to see more of Mikey's story filled out after reading so much about him in Matched. 4 stars
