This story is just intense, and sometimes stark, but with the help of Craden's narration characters come to life and there's a softness to the whole reading experience that charms the hell out of you. If I had read this book myself, I may not have finished in with all of Celeste's internal dialogue at the beginning but listening to it through Craden's performance just set everything for me. This author and narrator are a team made in heaven

Story was entertaining, characters were awesome. Politics and romance...who could ask for more?😁 Loved all the interactions between MCs. You could feel their connection always. Ofcourse Abby Craden can be credited for a lot of the feels here. side characters were also lovable and entertaining! Abby Craden, as always, did a great job voicing the characters that were beautifully created by Lynn Ames.

Took a bit to get into but then settled into some semblance of a Melissa Brayden book!! the witty banter I enjoy and connection I usually feel when reading an MB book came a little later in the book but was there none the less. Characters were fun and the main romance was awesome as always once the book got going. Narration took a little to get used to but then enjoyed it a lot. Characters started off a little wooden but slowly grew 3D.

Different concept

Interesting concept. interesting characters - especially CC! I want her story!! Story got a little bogged down in explanation at times...but seeing as the concept was a novel one, I understood the need. Quite different from other books I've read of EJN. Not sure why, but wasn't very invested in this world she's created but still enjoyed the story. Narration by AC was full of inflection...had to get used to her Pommy accent, which was a lot better than her Aussie one😁...juuuust didn't do it for me. Personal preference for story telling is her American accent so far. I felt CC's accent was pretty spot on as well. I need a love story for CC narrated by AC . One thing is for certain, AC's narration bring all the characters to life as unique people, with clear personalities and a realness to them that surprises and impresses me everytime I think about it.

Anything GH is a great quality read, so this book isn't any different. Second time reading but first time listening. It was just brilliant! AC does an awesome job narrating as per usual! Have tried listening to some of my favourite authors but cannot keep my interest like AC does! I actually left another story half way just to choose one narrated by AC because it just wasn't hitting the spot! AC has incredible inflection, like she's come up with the words and is speaking them with genuine and natural emotion! I forget that it's one person speaking for many (especially the two lead females) as each voice is different and is true to the written character!

Very enjoyable

Read this once before but first time listening. This author always writes entertaining stories with depth. From the few books I have read, it seems her stories tend to highlight certain real-life topics that she intertwines in an awesome romance that keeps you reading. Her characters are real and loveable. I love this narrator, her voice is just awesome and has definitely spoilt me for others. Admittedly, her Aussie accent needs A LOT of work...it was more Kiwi/Pommy at times and unrecognisable at others, but everything else about her reading makes up for this.

Good book all up

Can't go wrong with GB! Narration by Lori Prince was really good as well.
