Publisher's Summary

Can broken hearts risk love again? India's life has always gone according to plan. But when she decides to call off her high-profile wedding and take time off from her network television job, everything turns upside down. A tranquil resort in the moody Smoky Mountains of Tennessee was supposed to be a place she could hide out and lick her wounds. Instead she finds herself questioning everything she ever thought she wanted.
Wyatt is a man with scars that run deep. He's built a careful life for himself, and he has no intention of letting anyone get close to him...again. But what happens when two people who are running away from love run right into one another? Will the intense chemistry they feel be enough to overpower their fears? Or will their time together in the Smoky Mountains end with broken hearts?

I wanted more story line

Where does Walland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This story falls in to the 'one listen' category. No reason to listen to this one again. It was okay. I'm not sure why this is Book 1. It felt like all the characters various story lines were summed up in the Epilogue.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Ms. Young is articulate and has a nice voice. Overall, I felt the narration was rushed. She didn't seem to emotionally connect with the story. Sexy parts, narration parts, dialog parts...it was mostly the same. I think a slower pace and some pauses would have really added to the listening experience.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, I was never transported into the story by either the narration or the actual writing. I wanted more character development and storyline development by Ms. Thorne. It just felt like they (the main characters) spent more time in bed than getting to know one another. There was a lot of potential with India and her situation once she returned back to her job. Like I said, I wanted more.

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author. As a courtesy, I provided an unbiased review. Thank you for the listening experience.

Great Romance About Second Chances

I really enjoyed this author writing style. The characters were well developed and strong. The story did not have too much drama and the main characters were honest and intelligent.

The narration was excellent and brought the story to life. Her intonation was really good and I felt immersed into this audiobook.

This Contemporary Romance is about second chances. India just broke off with her fiancé on the day of their planned wedding. She is well known on TV because of her job and her courtship had been too public for her taste.

Wyatt is a great guy with deep scars from his past. He has been alone for too long and it was past time for him to move on from his painful past.

The secondary characters were also interesting and the story kept me listening all the way to the conclusion. There is a HEA conclusion and no cliffhangers. I'm looking forward to reading/listening to more books by Andrea Thome.
