Summary

The first time Travis North lays eyes on Liana McDermott, she's wearing the most hideous bridesmaid dress he's ever seen. He doesn't immediately recognize the world-famous super model who is attending her cousin Enid's wedding at the country club he owns. Thanks to Enid's shameless matchmaking, Travis and Liana become acquainted and later embark on a two-week fling intended to be free of emotion and entanglement. As Liana's return to work gets closer, however, Travis wonders how he'll ever let her go when the time comes while Liana considers whether he might be her true north. Two high-powered careers, two amazing weeks and a love that comes along just once in a lifetime. Is she ready to give up her career for a different kind of life? Does he want the same things she does? After insisting on an emotionless affair, she can't very well ask him. Or can she?

Wrong narrator?

The narrator, while she has a great voice, her delivery was so flat I don't think she did the book justice. She may be better not doing a romantic story. Her announcing the chapter was more lively than happy scenes.

My mistake

What would have made True North better?

I bought this book based on a few reviews and the price was right. I need to remember to read more reviews and listen to the demo. I didn't love the performance and I probably skipped a third of the book so I wouldn't have to listen to book porn. I would've liked some substance- this book didn't have it.

What was most disappointing about Marie Force’s story?

It was a mindless read- and did the writer get a bonus for every "sweetheart" written into the story?

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holly Fielding?

Gah!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from True North?

All the pet names and graphic sex

Looking for a well written and gripping romance?

This is not it!

Apparently I need to write 20 words, so I'll add shallow, unrelatable, insulting and utterly uninspired.

Typical romance novel

This was a typical romance. The female character was a model. The narrator gave her an, "I'm bored" voice. The story is based on two beautiful people; the man chasing the woman. I won't be re-reading it.

Hang in there

I really struggled to get into this book, as the Alpha Male, pushed the woman a bit too much for me. she said no, he said you'll like it... it set my teeth on edge. Once I was able to get past those first few chapters, I was happy with the rest of the book. It ended the correct way.

Okay story but poor narrator.

The story of famous models and pulled them up by the bootstrap guys. It would be an average read, except that the narrator is too monotone and will put you to sleep. I forced myself to listen to the entire book. The storyline starts out weak but gets better. However, the narration never improveds. Recommend you read the book rather than listen to this version.

Not as good as the fatal series

This was just ok for me. Worth the credit but no rave review here. Narrator put me to sleep. She should not read romance. No emotion

I Did Not Like the Narrator

I just read reviews and agree with them on a couple of items.

1. I would rather have had two books with the two romances. I too agree that the Jesse and Beck story was a better one.

2. The narrator while has a nice voice isn't a good narrator. I had difficulties distinguishing who she was reading about, when she changed paragraphs. There was little or no inflection in her voice. I found myself pausing the story and restating out loud to myself what was said with the inflection it needed.

3. I would give the author another chance but NOT the narrator.

A lovely story with so-so narration

This book popped up as an audible recommendation and wanting something new, I decided to try it. The story is sweet, though I agree with other reviewers that the real love story is with Beck and Jessie in the subplot. Still, the characters are believable and human (considering we're talking about millionaires and supermodels).

What didn't work for me as well is the narration. Holly Fielding has a great voice; I just don't think it's the right voice for sweet romance. Her tone carried a note of tragedy to it that squashed a lot of the happier, lighter moments. It wasn't bad; it just could have been better.

I enjoyed the book enough that I'd give Marie Force another try.
