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?

Decadent!

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.

This is a great book; this is the third book in the Misfit Brides series written by Jamie Farrell and narrated by Karen White. Dahlia Mallard runs 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. She plans on 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.

This book has a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.

The narrator Karen White did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
