Not as good as usual
First off, I hope Siiri Scott as a narrator is a one off thing because I found her character’s voices to be quite grating. She put too much whine into the voices whenever the characters were angry or upset and it made them sound like young teenagers. I also thought her male voices in general just didn’t work.
Plot wise, it started out good. She laid the scene well and the characters interacted in a believable way. But the middle/end dragged on and I struggled to stay invested in the characters. It’s a good thing this wasn’t my first book by Jamie Beck- otherwise I doubt I would have listened to any of her other stories.

Cooking up a storm
A typical Jamie Beck romance . Good and slightly different story line that was always moving forward with no "filling in" from the side. Written with clever dialogue, which always puts her books on a higher level. For the true romantics this is a book not to be missed .

Good story/Bad narration
I love Jamie Beck books and the story was good. But the narrator was almost unbearable. Annoyingly dramatic narration.

NO to Narrator-lisp
Would you try another book from Jamie Beck and/or Siiri Scott?
not if you want audio-book - couldn't get past lisp and "sss" when reading, thought it would get better as she went on, but couldn't make it through 1st chapter in book and not worth it, cancelled the whole book series.
What could Jamie Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
different narrator...never got past 1st chapter,and no time to read it myself so cancelled whole series from kindle
What didn’t you like about Siiri Scott’s performance?
Might be a great person, but she has a lisp and any word with an "ss" and she doesn't sound good as a guys voice.
