A Cinderella story for grownups
I don't expect too much out of these short stories but because it was on sale I thought I would give it a go. I'm so pleased I did - it was a nice little romance story well worth a listen.
This is supposed to be part of a trilogy so I hope Audible will get the other 2.

Wonderful story of love against adversity.
What can you say about a book where the hero loves and believes in his true love almost from the first moment? Olivia Gates takes her lovers, Shaheen and Johara, and places their romance in a situation where things like a sense of duty and external influences threaten to tear them apart. In a genre where misunderstanding and angst between the protagonists is the usual way to drive the conflict this book came as a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of tension and anxiety but the relationship between Hero and Heroine remained a shining light throughout. Olivia writes great prose and brings out emotions that engage and sex scenes that sizzle. I listened to this book on audio on my kindle while driving and became so involved I continued to listen once I arrived home against my usual practice.

Cute, but I got bored half way through
This was a really cute story but I got so bored half way through and fast foward to the end. Didn't really miss much. Could have been better and a bit more excititing. There was HEA at the end though.
Narration was ok. Nothing to rave about...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
It was okay. I like short and to the point books.
Any additional comments?
In between the good love making there was actually a little mystery to solve to make the book interesting. I recommend based on the love scenes.
