This is a hard book to review! I loved a lot about it but I didn't love a few things too.
I'll start by saying I loved the basic story line. The author did an amazing job telling this story. I loved Parker when she first met new people, she was snarky, honest and fun. The time line in this book is what I think made it hard for me. If this story took place over a few years I would have LOVED it but it was really only a few months and that made it very hard for me to get on board with the love story. I do not like insta-love and this book has it times 2!! About 4 hours into this book I was wondering if it was supposed to all about the shock value. Because yes, there is "I didn't see that coming" in a huge way but I couldn't see where the book was going from there with 5 hours left to go. I found this book to be pretty depressing most of the time. And don't get me started on the sex scenes lol I was getting whiplash, either you have closed door sex scenes or you have details, you do not have graphic details then SLAM the door closes, that was a little odd for me.

I think if I had known before starting it that this book was sad and it had a shocking moment I would have loved it and like I said above If it had a longer timeline I would be screaming from the rooftops about it but instead I was left feeling a little unemotional about the characters because I couldn't get on board with the love they had for each other and after a huge WOW moment in the middle, the rest of the book fell a little flat for me.

The narration was great, She was perfect for all the characters and spot on the entire time!

Totally Fabulous!

I loved this story and couldn't quit listening! I wish I could give it more stars. I think that Jewel E Ann is a great writer. Her stories have such heart and originality, while throwing in some really cute comic parts that make me smile and laugh.. Yes, this has a couple of sad parts but that is what makes the story tug at my heart and makes me LOVE it! In my library of over 200 audible books, UNDENIABLY YOURS is probably my favorite stand-a-lone book, also narrated by my favorite narrator, Tracy Marks.

I loved the characters in this book! Parker and Levi are wonderful. I really liked the narrator of this book too, Tia Sorensen. However, I don't see any other romance books in her library. This was so worth the credit and will definitely be listened to again and again! I wish more of Jewel E. Ann books were on audible!
