This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Harlequin Romance readers circa 1980.
Has Until There Was You turned you off from other books in this genre?
I know this is fiction, but how much crap can anyone take? I did not like the book because the storyline was ridiculous and the main character was a doormat. This book was really about Liam and his relationship with his daughter. The worst part is that he had to be coerced throughout the book to be interested in the main character.......Yuck. This was not a good book.
What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?
You can hear the humor in her voice. I really liked her performance. It was the only good thing about the book.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Until There Was You?
All the scenes with her cousin. I think they were added to help us feel more sorry for the main character, but they just annoyed me.
Any additional comments?
I want my credit back. I have all of her audiobooks. This was my least favorite.

I've been listening to this book while confined to my computer instead of listening to background music. I really enjoyed this book, though I wasn't sure I would. At first glance, Posey seems like a weak female character, which I don't particularly like. But, she really isn't exactly. She let too many people get away with treating her crappy. But, she had just enough something to make me keep listening. She deals with a lot of things anyone could relate to in a very realistic, even if not preferable IMO, way. Even when I was routing for her to tell Liam to take a flying leap off of a rolling doughnut over the highest cliff, her reactions were believable, if not irritating. You know people like this who aren't exactly doormats, but take way too much crap. When I thought she should tell her cousin, Dante, and a few others to join Liam on that doughnut, still her actions were relatable even if a little frustrating. She's like many people you know who happen to have a slow fuse. And, those people can be very frustrating to those of us with a short fuse. And, I couldn't even dislike Liam. He was just conflicted. This book was well done, with very likable characters even though you might want to smack them at times. Loved her brother in law, John. Xe Sands did a great job with all the characters. But, I really liked her characterization of him.
This was my first time listening to Xe Sands. She has a very different style that worked well with this book. And, she really pulls you in.
