My first book from this author and I have really enjoyed it. I know for certain I will listen to it again and again. Now I'm off to look for other books by her!

This is a beautiful love story with characters you fall in love with. There are twists and turns, and plenty of intimate moments. What I liked is that we got to see their lives in the following years where so often we don't get that and are left guessing.

Another thrilling installment of The Steele Saga! There's always twists and turns in this story that spans the entire series & this one left us with the ultimate cliffhanger. As always these performers were excellent.

Brilliant!

This was a great listen. The story had twists and turns and my heart was right along for the ride too, I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters. The actors were fantastic as always. I'd really recommend this.

Loved everything!

First of all, the actors did a great job! I've not been a fan of some that have gone before in this series but this was great. It is a great story and refreshingly different, this was the book I never wanted to finish and I want to know more of their lives to come. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I very nearly sent it back!

This is the first Layla Hagen book I've listened to/read. I very much enjoyed the storyline with great characters and a lot of promise for books to come that I can't wait to get stuck into. I very much enjoyed Aiden Snow's narration throughout the entire book. However the narration done by Kasha Kensington was poor at best. I'm really struggling to find a gentle way of describing my thoughts, I really don't like to hurt others feelings, but it greatly diminished my enjoyment of the book. Right from the off when listening to Kasha I was struck by how awkward it sounded, it didn't flow and was read one sentence at a time with a noticeable pause each time. My immediate reaction was I can't listen to hours of this and I seriously considered returning it, which is very rare for me. The only reason I didn't was the story started with Sebastian, competently read by Aiden, so that together with the book summary already had me hooked by the time Kasha started. I can't say it ruined the story because the story I loved but it is something others should be made aware of. Kasha hasn't narrated the rest of the series which I am pleased about because despite really wanting to hear the family's story I wouldn't have bought any more.

I came close to quitting this book

I'll start by saying I have 17 audiobooks by Laurelin Paige and have genuinely loved all of them but with 2 hours left to go on this book I very nearly gave up and at times it had me shouting out in sheer frustration. I'm all for the 'will they won't they' storyline that comes with romance fiction but in this book Laurelin over played her hand. The period that was set in London was far too long with Dylan and his never ending procrastination, it was so incredibly frustrating bordering on annoyance. *SPOILER ALERT* I listen to erotic romance books, I'm a hopeless romantic, which is the only reason I stuck with it whenq at the 8 hour mark I came close to quitting it. I want the characters to get together and see what comes of them as couple. You have to wait exactly 10 hours before that happens, theres plenty of sex before that point but it is 10 hours before they become a couple and then the books over with a hastily set prologue less around 45 mins later which left me feeling unsatisfied. I listened to the last 5 hours all in one go, whether I'd felt so frustrated in smaller chunks I don't know but frustrating is what sums up this book and I'm really sorry about that as I do love this author.

❤️ Kristen Proby books!

As with every Kristen Proby book I've listened to I loved this, it is very heartwarming. It is set in Cunningham Falls so I loved catching up on the other characters, both in this series and the Love Under the Big Sky series. The performance was mostly great but the English men sounded like ladies a lot of the time!

Fabulous!

I have absolutely loved this series. I'm a royalist so the storyline is perfect for me, it had me gripped and I fell in the love with the main characters. These are by no means short audiobooks but they could have gone on for another 20 hours and it wouldn't have been long enough!

I love this book!

Jodi Ellen Malpas does it again! I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, its an amazing story. I've just listened to it for the second time, in preparation to listen to the second book in this duo, and it was just as enthralling as the first time. I cannot wait to start the second book. I also have to that the narration is one of the best I have heard in a long time! There are many characters in this book yet each one has its own voice and character which is quite amazing. I'd highly recommend. This is one series I hope that Passionflix picks up!!
