Publisher's Summary

Lindsey Hilliard flees her charmed life in New York, searching for answers after her fiancé's betrayal fills her with self-doubt. Unfortunately, her rented Malibu home is next door to Levi Hardy, the sexy but insufferable man who humiliated her years ago.

Hardened by a grim past he keeps concealed, Levi prefers maintaining a comfortable distance from folks, especially a nosy princess like Lindsey. But then a motorcycle collision brings him to his knees, forcing him to accept her assistance with his recovery. Sparks begin to fly when the woman who doesn't believe in herself teaches the cynic how to have faith in others. Levi realizes his body will recover, but his heart won't if Lindsey returns to the ex who wants her back.

In the biggest gamble of his life, Levi teaches her to trust her own voice, and hopes she'll use it to say good-bye to her past and hello to a future with him.

    "Okay, but nothing special"

    I've enjoyed a number of Jamie Beck's other books, but I thought this story was a bit cliche and I never really got invested in the characters. It passed the time, but wasn't anything special. I'm unlikely to listen to it a second time.

    Story
    "Good premise"

    I like Amy Rubinate and that was one reason I ordered this book, the trouble for me was the narration. When I read that there are two narrators (man and woman) I expect the man to read the man's narration and the woman to read the woman's narration, that is not what happened with this book. In this book, every other chapter was in the person of one of the characters and the narrator read the entire chapter. It took a lot away from the story, in my opinion.

    Other than that, it was a pretty good story, with a unique premise. I think I would like it much better if I had read the book and if the story moved along a little more quickly.

    "Horrible Female Narration"

    Jamie is a fabulous writer. Please give her other books a listen you will not be disappointed.

    The female narrator ruined this experience for me. Buy the paperback.

    "Wonderful Story but unrealistic female narrator."
    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Cards to be better than the print version?

    I heard of the audio version after reading the book. The male narrator for Levi was southern and enjoyable enough to really embrace his character. The narrator for Lindsey was more nasal and sounded midwestern rather than from Connecticut. I didn't enjoy her whiny tone as I didn't view Lindsey quite as whiny while reading the book first. Embracing the opportunity to hear a version of


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Levi was my favorite with the narration. He was a sweet, struggling character who made amazing transformation throughout the book. I love how he really was clear with his actions and intentions. Levi could be trusted.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Amy Rubinate and Will Damron ?

    I would pick Will over Amy, although I would be willing to give her a chance as another character from the midwest. She needed to work on her "yankee" dialect.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The journey of discovering who you are in the fullest potential can be challenging, but absolutely worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author after discovering this book. I have since signed up to follow her on facebook and have pre-ordered her next book.

    "Great Book ... narration, only average."
    What made the experience of listening to In the Cards the most enjoyable?

    The story is perfect! It's contemporary romance but with quite an interesting premise that sets it apart from others in the genre.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't really like male narrators and male narrators doing female voices make me gag. Amy Rubinate was great. Will Damron I struggled with. The book is told from alternate POVs with both narrators doing both male and female voices. Might have been better if they had Amy doing all the dialogue for Lindsey and Will doing all the dialogue for Levi. With the narration handled by both of them depending on whose POV it was at the time.

    Interesting and complex characters make a good story tantalizing. It keeps one
    on edge wondering what drama will unfold next. Loved the ending.

    "Melodrama at it's best"
    If you could sum up In the Cards in three words, what would they be?

    sincere, deep, strongly felt


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very thought provoking story. And, for me it’s one of those stories where as I’m reading I’m not sure if I’m loving it or hating it. The story was heartfelt, but the melodrama was over the top for me. <br/><br/>Dysfunctional characters coming from two different lifestyles. Our Heroine, a life of a privileged child with an overbearing mother. Our Hero, a child raised by a con man, and a mother who deserted him. Both characters holding the honorary title of TSTL…. <br/><br/>The writing was excellent, the characters well developed, and simply put the entire story was well developed with nothing missing. When I had to put the story down for some reason I found myself anxious to be back to the story. The epilogue was perfect, so of course I ended up loving the book. Therefore, by the end I couldn’t bring myself to not give it 5 stars. <br/><br/>I read and listened to the audio. I feel the narrators did a pretty good job. Excellent Read.<br/>

    "Female Narrator is the worst"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Her voice is terrible...nasily ...I can't bear to finish the book it's so bad...and her trying to be a male voice is just as bad

    "Not satisfied"

    This is one of Jamie Beck's weaker books. The narration is way too animated for my taste. It's not bad but it's not great either.

    Story
    "Good book. Annoying female voice."

    This was a well written book. The story was great about trust and breaking down barriers. I originally didn't think I could finish bc of the female voice but eventually I got used to it. It was also weird the male voice doing some female voicing but I don't see any other way they could have done it. Anyways. I loved the story. Another good book with a happy ending and I appreciate that.
