I'm Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I'm anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men. After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I'd learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways. But, let's be real here, love is never that easy. Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved.

I'm sorry to write this review. I really really wanted to like this book, and I kept listening to it hoping that I was wrong, but I wasn't.
How excited was I to buy a book about an Aussie surfer, being that I'm an Aussie who lives in a surfing based State? How exciting that the guy wasn't some 20 something idiot, but an 30ish dude that had lots of potential. How awesome that the main girl was a sarcastic, funny, willing try anything heroine. All big ticks in my opinion. I was on holidays, and awaiting a great feel good book.
First of all, two of the characters were Australian. We had an American narrator, and whilst she tried really hard to master our obnoxious twang, she failed, miserably. I tried really hard to ignore her butchering our accent, but I just couldn't get past it. I'm really sorry. And it was because I was interested in the story so much that I kept on keeping on to hear the story out. Unfortunately, it was another one of those "if these people just spoke to each other, none of this would have fallen apart" type scenarios. One huge over-reaction and bam, book ended, please buy next one. I'm really sorry to say this, but maybe if it had been dual narrated, maybe even had three narrators, I could have handled the predictable storyline better. I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get past those issues. Won't stop me from trying the author again though.

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

This was a really sweet, slow burning love story. I bought this book based on the blurb provided, and because I love Andi’s narration. Imagine my delight, and horror, to slowly find out that the story was set in my home town and the surrounding towns that I now live in. So excited to listen to this, reliving my summer night out in Palmwoods, the smells, the stars, the heat. My horror was listening to an American narrator of an Australian story. It kind of spoiled the story for me. I know not every listener will be an Aussie, but it just left me a little sad, and that’s why I wasn’t fully committed to a 5 star review for performance. Andi was awesome & voiced Adele’s wit & sarcasm so well, she just didn’t have the right heritage.
I look forward to more of Kylie’s books, but I might read them instead of listening.

I didn't mean to sneak a peek at my older brother's best friend. But when I catch him showering by mistake, I can't help but look. The guy is massive - and I do mean everywhere. We're all home to celebrate Dad's retirement as one big happy family, except my newlywed brother's already getting divorced, my mom keeps asking why I'm still single, and most frustrating of all, Barrett Wilson is staying with us at my parents' home for the weekend. I've known Barrett for years, so why am I suddenly noticing so many new things about him - like how big he is? It's maddening.

I really enjoyed Bro Code. Some of the story lines were a bit far sketchy (what did they actually make in the factory?) but the romance was good, and believable. The dual narration was the best part though, and great choice in voice actors, they were perfect as Barrett & Ava. I quite enjoyed this one 😊

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn't been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.
