Summary

To love again, he’ll either sink or swim.

There’s only one person Gabriel Castillo has always aspired to be - his father, an expert sea lion trainer at New York Aquarium. Then tragedy strikes. Now he must step into his father’s shoes, take care of his mother, and cut ties in a dead-end relationship.

He’s resigned to being single and 100 percent work-focused, until Harper Wheeler arrives. The new tour guide from Kentucky draws him in like a fish on a hook, but he has to concentrate on his job if he wants to continue his father’s legacy. Getting swept up in Harper’s southern charms will just complicate things. So why can’t he stay away?

Harper had dreamed of spreading her wings to get out of Kentucky and away from her dead-end life there. She jumps at the chance to work at New York Aquarium, and she has no desire to get weighed down with a boyfriend anytime soon.

The sexy Cuban sea lion trainer is making that really difficult, but he can’t see what a great guy he really is. Should she risk her heart trying to convince him otherwise?

Sweet and young

This is a story about a young woman from Kentucky moving to New York for a job and meeting the man of her dreams. Harper and Gabriel both work at the same place, along with Gabriel's possessive ex-girlfriend. Gabriel has certain issues he needs to work through before he can genuinely commit to Harper. To be fair, the characters are young and this is definitely reflected in the story. I think that is why I didn't enjoy the story as much as I might have if I had been younger.

Overall the audiobook is easy and quick to listen to with a guaranteed HEA.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Romantic and sweet

All his life, Gabriel wanted to be like his father, a sea lion trainer, and good provider. When his father unexpectedly dies, he is thrown into the position before he is ready, and has to rise to the occasion. Love is the last thing on his mind. When Harper comes to New York and gets a position at he aquarium though, all bets are off. She is everything he wants. He tries to distance himself, but it's next to impossible. Rachel, Gabriel's ex is not ready to let go of her childhood sweetheart and things get pretty sticky. I love these stories, Harper being from Kentucky and moving to NYC is a huge adjustment, and we get to live that experience with her. We get to visit with other friends we have made through this series. It's always fun to see characters we know adding a layer of cohesiveness as we listen. Harper is a great character, trying to find her way in the big city. Her clumsiness both physically and her ability to learn her new job skills is funny and endearing. Gabriel is a strong character,focused and once he knows what he wants, is determined to achieve it. I loved his way with the kids during sea lion demonstrations finding he is very calming. It's a fun, romantic listen and great addition to the series.

Narrated by Riley Raye, she expertly inserts the Hispanic accent into the story. I loved her voices for the different characters. She made it a very pleasant listen and the story came to life.

Sea Lions, Not Seals!

Things I learned (and I love to learn!): sea lions have earflaps and can flip their flippers to stand and walk while seals slither along on their bellies on land; Cubans eat really well (craving some tostones y ropas viejas!); training animals can build strong bodies twelve ways (points if you "got" that reference).

This is the third in a series of romances which share characters but focus on a different couple in each book and can each stand alone. A bit of very steamy sex but limited to one scene--the rest of the story is PG and fun!

UPDATE~~Just listened to the audio version and enjoyed the story even more the second time! You'll enjoy the various accents which help identify the various characters.

In the minority and DNF

I didn’t care for this book. I believe this is more of a case of not liking the narrator. However, I did give up on this book at about the half way point. There was just no imagining the hero of this story being any older than 12 with the voice of the narrator.

Worth a credit? No!

Great Read

Sealed With a Kiss was a great read by Mysti Parker and MJ Post. This is book three in the City Meets Country series. Gabriel has always wanted to be just like his father. After his recent death, Gabriel finds himself making many changes in his life. He doesn't expect to get swept up in a new love, Harper a new employee at his job. I loved Harper and Gabriel's story and can't wait to read more by the authors.

Such a sweet yet steamy love story..........

Sealed with A Kiss is the third book in the series, but the author made this a complete standalone. In this book, Gabriel is a Cuban American recently beginning his career at the Bronx Aquarium as a sea lion trainer. Unfortunately, Gabriel must take his father's place as the head of the aquatic training when his father dies unexpectedly and leaves his position open. Not only must Gabriel fill his father's place at work, but he feels that he must take care of his widowed mother and be a perfect man like he believes his father always was. At the same time, he breaks up with his high school sweetheart and fiance, Rachel, who happens to work in the marketing department at the Aquarium.

Into this volatile situation walks Harper, a recent college graduate from Lexington, Kentucky, leaving her country life for a job in the big city at, you guessed it, the Bronx Aquarium. Harper gets to know Gabriel, and their connection quickly deepens into something neither planned on having at this point in their lives. They both want to focus on their careers, and Gabriel constantly struggles with living up to his father's standards. Despite some tangles with Rachel, some hilarity from uncooperative mammal costumes and frisky sea lions, and a little angst over family drama, Harper and Gabriel still manage to fall in love. Although at times tender and sweet, this story also had plenty of passion and fire, and I was truly invested in these two getting their HEA.

Riley Raye's narration is excellent. She has a very pleasant voice, and she handles with equal ease both Harper's slight Southern drawl and Gabriel's Cuban accent. She made an already wonderful story an even better listening experience.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Sweet story with some bumps along the way

A nice love story that had some bumps from the ex-girlfriend (of course) along the way. Another good book in the series; I enjoy how the characters progress and love that you get to hear about all the characters from the previous books.

Sweet Story, Great Narration!

Sealed with a Kiss by Mysti Parker and MJ Post lived up to my expectations for this book. The story is a standalone listen and part of the City Meets Country series. I so enjoy how the characters are original and endearing. The narration by Riley Raye was perfect. She added authentic sounding accents to the various characters. I could easily hear exactly whom was speaking. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
