Enjoyed

I liked this book but I wasn't keen on the narrator she made the character sound really whiny. But the story was great I love the chemistry between Jasmine and Shane.

Enjoyed the book

This is the first book I've listened to by Bethany Lopez. I really enjoyed the storyline and characters. It was a good standalone, but I'm certain it'd have been better if I had followed the series.

Amy Soakes has not been my favorite narrator. She had a great 40's, 50's, 60's starlet voice or more cartoonish voice. I didn't care for her male voices. After I sped up the playback, it was much better. Her voice just didn't fit with this type of book.

Jasmine and Shane!

Jasmine is back in her hometown working for the family business and surrounded by her family. She is ready to set down roots but only when it comes to a house and not necessarily when it comes to a man.

Shane is a bartender who Jasmine believes has a way with woman but the only woman he wants is her. What was supposed to be a marriage of convenience to suite both their purposes has started to feel real on Shane’s part but will Jasmine feel the same?

These two are perfect for each other. Shane knew from the beginning that they were meant to be and although Jasmine didn’t realize until it was almost too late she redeemed herself in the end. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrator did a good job with Jasmine’s voice but would have liked some different tones for the other characters.

Charming and sweet story with all the best feels!

Audio review:

The audio for Too Dangerous by Bethany Lopez was charming, a bit angsty and had me wondering how it would all end kind of read! Jasmine Lewis guards her heart fiercely because in the past, she has been used for who she is and who she knows. But guarding it from Shane, a friend of her and her cousins, is getting harder and harder. When they find themselves wanting something they both truly want, but can’t seem to have, will a marriage of convenience solve all their problems or just complicate things more?

I absolutely loved Shane. He was charming, honest, caring and loyal. He wore his heart on his sleeve, especially when it came to Jasmine. Jasmine, because of past hurts, could not get out of her own head and see what was in front of her. Could they find their happily-after-ever together before it was too late?

Narrated by Amy Soakes, Too Dangerous was a quick listen that was sweet, charming and emotional. Though this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone and I am very excited to go back and listen to the entire series!

Happy listening!

Is a marriage of convenience too dangerous?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, Shane an Jazzy were electric from the beginning. I haven't read any of the other books in the series so I don't completely know their past but they had a chemistry that was undeniable.

A marriage of convenience.. dangerous? Maybe. Worth it? Hopefully.

Shane is so hot from the beginning and I just love all the Australian lingo he used throughout the book. It was sexy. Jazzy was very headstrong and hardheaded. I liked the fact that she was independent and had her own money, she wasn't a damsel in distress at all.

This was a good story and I am excited to go and start from the beginning of the series and read the rest of the books to see how the other couples all came to be about.

Now for the 1 star on the performance... so first off I didn't like the fact that Jazzy is suppose to be from America and the narrator had an English accent, that really threw me off. The other issue I had was the fact that her voice was almost whiny. I caught myself being annoyed by the high pitch tone and not paying attention to the story line because the narrators voice was really throwing a kink in it for me. The voices she tried to do for the characters was not very good, at some parts she was doing a male character with a higher pitch than normal. Also she used quite a few English pronunciation of words rather than an American pronunciation which just kept making me go back to the same question of "why does she have an accent if she's American?"

The final single Lewis cousin meets her match!

If you’ve read the previous books in the series, you know that Jazzy is a spitfire...and that there’s serious chemistry between her and Shane. Jazzy is finally ready to purchase a home and start settling down but the chosen house requires its purchaser to be married! Shane’s work visa is about to expire and he needs help in remaining in the USA. Jazzy proposes to Shane that they get married to solve their problems, he reluctantly agrees. Can they pull off the charade and fool the Lewis family? Will Jazzy admit that she loves Shane before it’s too late?
Great wrap to the series...sad to see the end.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Nope!

All the women in this series rub me the wrong way but this one most of all. Strong is one thing stupid is another. And while I hate to disparage anybody's work the narrator on this was awful.

Too Dangerous

Another really good addition to this series with a friends to lovers vibe. I really enjoyed the writing of the book, but wasn’t in love with the narration. I felt like the speech was through her nose and that sound bugs me a bit, but the emotions and reading was done well so I’m a bit on the fence with it. Still it is definitely worth a listen/read.

Worst narrator ever totally ruins this book

After listening to all 4 1/2 hours of this book, I honestly can't remember what the plot of the story was. What I do remember is how awful the female narrator was. Part of it was that I believe her native language has an Australian accent and her American voices were probably based on either a whiny Minnie Mouse or the over-the-top SNL sketches of the Kardashians. It was so awful that I had to play it for my husband and we had a good laugh about it. Do yourself a favor and either read the Kindle version of this book, or skip it altogether for a better audiobook.

Too dangerous

There is too much self doubt and soul searching! The book is good but it needs some action and exciting activities in it.

Good story, terrible narrator

Loved the whole series even with the predictable storylines.

This narrator was terrible - that whiny voice almost made me return it without finishing. Her performance of Dillon was especially annoying. I listened to it at 1.25x and can’t imagine how grating it would be at regular speed.
