Darcy Barrett found her dream man at age eight - ever since, she's had to learn to settle for good enough. Having conducted a global survey of men, she can categorically say that no one measures up to Tom Valeska, whose only flaw is that he's her twin brother's best friend - oh, and that 99 percent of the time, he hasn't seemed interested in her.

This book is extremely slow, it takes 6 chapters to get through one evening in the story. I am not sure if I can finish it, very boring.

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman sit across from each other every day...and they hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. Lucy can't understand Joshua's joyless, uptight approach to his job and refusal to smile. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy's overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and desire to be liked. Now they're up for the same promotion, and Lucy, usually a determined people pleaser, has had enough: it's time to take him down. But as the tension between Lucy and Joshua reaches its boiling point, it's clear that the real battle has only just begun....

Life was great. I loved my bachelor life and working my dream job with the Colorado Springs SWAT team. That all changed the day I stepped into her bakery. Her smile swept me off my feet, and her panna cotta was heaven. Cue my very traditional Greek family. Then all hell broke loose.

I enjoyed this book but not as much as her books of the Mercury and Phoenix Packs. It's a good listen but the narration is a bit off, much prefer Jill Redfield narrating this type of book.

But when this fiery heiress upped the ante on the cool Comanche gambler, steamy didn't begin to describe the results....

I am only half way through this book, I find the narrators voice, brash and a bit loud which makes listening to the story a bit hard. Unfortunately what may of been a good book is spoiled by the narrator.

Katie Malone and her twin boys’ trip along the mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tyre as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, and Katie doesn’t have the first clue about putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble - and in that instant, her future is transformed.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book which is part of the Virgin River series. The characters were believable as well as the story line. Therese Plummer is a fantastic narrator. I have enjoyed listening to this whole series and wish it could go on and on. I may start listening from the beginning again seeing as I enjoyed the books so much.
