Summary

Eastern Nights is part of the Compass Series but can also be listened to as a stand-alone. 

Felicia Perez, a carefree, hopeless flirt from Miami, is working a second job as a fitting model in Bangkok while saving up to expand her own clothing line. She loves women and her freedom and never shies away from going after what she wants.

Kate Simmons is a passionate interior designer who is married to her job. Her love for beauty is universal; she can’t imagine tying herself down to anything that might limit her enjoyment of it, and that includes the shackles of a relationship.

When they meet in a hotel bar in Bangkok, they are instantly drawn to each other, but with both being used to having the upper hand, the situation is confusing to say the least. When two hunters cross paths, will one end up being the prey?

Together, they embark on a journey of self-discovery in the beautiful surroundings of exotic and mystical Thailand. Is the irresistible attraction between them merely the excitement of finally meeting their match or is the universe trying to steer them in the right direction?

Great story, rubbish narration

I really enjoy reading Lise Gold's stories and as I drive for my profession I decided to invest in the audio books. The idea is great, with my kindle, kindle phone app and the audible app all syncing so I can bob between them. However the narration made Falicia sound like a preditor and Kate sounded pathetic. I much preferred reading rather than listening. I didn't relate to the characters whilst listening. Hannah also is from London. That English accent makes her sound like she is a part of the Royal family! No! I'm British and we don't sound like that., 😂

Another excellent book in this excellent series

Another excellent book in this excellent series. While Hannah and Kristine were sweet and easy-going, Kate and Felicia are both players. Both are happy with their life, neither wants or expects a relationship and both are taken by surprise when they realize their chemistry goes far beyond the sexual realm .

Born to an American father and a Jamaican mother, Kate is a successful interior designer in New Orleans. We’ve met her in book 2, Southern Roots, as she’s Kristine’s best friend, and Hannah’s boss. At the beginning of Eastern Nights, she’s in Bangkok, working on a new hotel. With women, she’s a hunter, used to being in charge. Then she meets Felicia, a fitting model working on her own clothing line. The attraction is undeniable, despite their tendency to both want to be the dominant one. Their one night stand turns into way more and the two women

Two small details, if I may: smoking is not sexy and while silk, on the other hand, is sexy, it might not be the best material to tie someone down for the first time as it tends to tighten unexpectedly.

Kristine and Hannah are one of my favorite couples ever, so my expectations were really high for this, and I wasn’t disappointed. Once again the narration by Addison Barnes is really good and enhances the characters in just the right way. And Lise Gold has this way of describing places, the sounds, the impressions, that makes you feel like you’re there. Her books really make me want to visit the places she sets them in, whether it’s Norway, Louisiana or, in this one, Thailand.

Ugh!

I like this series. In fact, I like it so much I gritted my teeth through the first two books even though the narrator grates my nerves. I was really, REALLY hoping the 3rd book had a different narrator. It does not. She’s...not good. Her accents have been painful since book one, she pauses in awkward places and her intonation is odd to say the least. It’s like she recorded the books as she was reading them for the very first time. Ugh!!! She really ruined some very enjoyable books for me. Save yourself and just read the books.

Love and sightseeing in Bangkok

I found it a really enjoyable read, but more for the discovery of Bangkok and other spots in Thailand than the romance. At least in the beginning. As the story and the characters developed I became more attached and felt more and more for them. I finished the listen with a satisfied sigh - It's been a pleasant travel company during some long and otherwise boring drives.

Great series! Perfect installment for Kate’s story

This could act as a stand alone perfectly as the setting was fabulous and the characters perfectly developed. I’ve loved this series and am happy that Kate got her own HEA!! Plus the narrator, Addison Barnes has done an amazing job of maintaining voices throughout all the stories and makes it incredibly easy to hear the dialogue exchanges.

A continental romance for confirmed players.

An epic kind of travel through Thailand that is so beautifully written I want to go visit. The love story is written in such a strong, sensually beautiful way that I just loved the characters. I am such a fan of this compass series and each one just keeps getting better. Addison Barnes gives such great voice to the characters. Kate and Felicia are inspiring on so many levels but their connection is magical. I enjoyed this book greatly.

Destiny is despite the lack of hope

In the world of Hannah and Christine, there is hope for their friend Kate. In all things of not locking, love finds you.
