AS SWEET AS ICE TEA IN THE SUMMER

If you have not read the first book, "Broken," then I suggest you back up and start reading that book first as you will be lost since "Broken Dreams" follows, and starts where "Broken" ended. It has been a while since I read Broken and I really wish I would have listened to it again before venturing into this one. However, after a while I was right on board with the characters & where all the drama had left off.

First of all, be prepared for a fabulous audiobook. Shirl Rae is excellent. She is one of my favorite female narrators. I especially love the southern accent she provided for Reed. And, NELSON Hobbs….OMG…HOT-SOUTHERN-MAN-VOICE-ALERT. What a gorgeous voice Nelson has! I need to find more audiobooks he performs in! The combination of both Shirl and Nelson made this one sumptuous listen!

As far as the story is concerned, the love development between Reed and Courtney is low on the angst and high on the fun and romance. In fact, this is what I consider an indulgence for the helpless romantic. Reed and Courtney do face personal issues and conflicts brought on by outside sources, however, they are resolved or addressed either quickly or within their proper timing in the plot development. But, the romance between Reed and Courtney is fun, sexy, cute and continuous. The best part is that if you liked Layton and Whitely from "Broken," then you will adore this book because not only does it explore Reed & Courtney's love story, but simultaneously gives you more of Layton and Whitely which is awesome! What a perfect combination for two best friends from NYC, Whitely and Courtney, to fall in love with their gorgeous southern gentlemen, Layton and Reed. This is a sweet romance that takes readers into the beautiful landscape of the Texan countryside, to the range riding horses, to the vibe of dancing in hot night clubs, and two-stepping in town circles.

I recommend this listen/read when readers need a break from more ansty, drama-injected reads. It is all smooth sailing and as Reed & Courtney would put it….it passes the "swoon-worthy" test.

Sex, crying and Instalove to the extreme!

Well at least there was a bit less winking but the cheese factor is way off the charts. I hate you, I love you, you are my world,,, all in a few weeks. I fell in love with you the first second we met... Ugh! The H spent most of his time crying and more than half of the book was filler. You could skip entire chapters and not miss anything. I like good sex, oops, romantic scenes in books but there are so many, including after getting home from the hospital after delivering a baby, you will skip forward. My guesstimate is that 40-50% of the story are se... romantic scenes! After reading some reviews by a few of my favorite reviewers, I will skip this author in the future. Based on many of the 4 and 5 star reviews, she has a good following and my tastes are not in her target market.

Terrible!!!

Can not believe I actually finished this book. The narrators were fine, for the crap they had to read. The female lead characters are not like able. They are crass, inappropriate, trashy, and stupid. The men are sappy, overly emotional, and not believable. The rape is finally revealed to the family and they decide to go play laser tag! What??? Soooooo many stupid sex scenes. Every 5 min was a sex scene. Worst book ever!!!!

Broken Dreams

I never thought I’d say this but there was A LOT of sexy times in this story. I get that they were newlyweds but it was definitely something that was a little too much. Besides that, I enjoyed this story. Nelson Hobbs was spectacular, Shirl Rae was a good narrator, I didn’t like hearing her “moan”, I cringed each time she “cried out”. I’m sorry 😐. Overall this was enjoyable.

Too Corny and Unrealistic!

I suffered through first book in series thought Reid and Courtney's story would be better but it was more of the same corny crap.

Fell good love story broken dreams

Where does Broken Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

in my top 10 list for sure probably lol number 6 it was so good

What other book might you compare Broken Dreams to, and why?

this book is by Kelly Elliott and all her books are alike some people don't like authors who write same storylines but I like it because when I need a good love story to put me in a good mood I know Kelly Elliott's books will do the job x

They reminded me of Jeff and ari from Wanted #2 Saved because they hurt each at first fighting their felling for each other but once get got to together they kept making me smile like crazy

Have you listened to any of Shirl Rae and Nelson Hobbs ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

nelson was the voice for the male in the twist me which was a messed up sick man character he played the voice very well and he was in the previous Broken book of this series and so was shirl Rae and I think they did fabulous job on broken book #1 and this one #2

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes I fell asleep for a fees but had to finished it I did in less than 24 hours I was very lazy just listening but this book was so worth it to me

Any additional comments?

i loved this book so much I finished it less than a hour ago and I'm relistening to my favourite moments I think out of all Kelly Elliott's book Thai book is the one I'm most personally connected to you and emotionally because I am most like Courtney in real life loving my love Storting and unlike her doing editing I love writing and wish I could have a Prince Charming like in the books and TV and movies even knowing this is real life I would for a love and guy like Reid funny his name is Reid because it sound like read as books which she loves if you get it.

And her past is familiar to my mine I felt like her as reading love this book more than the first broken series book
