Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Perhaps in print but not in audio version.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Justine Eyre?
No, her over dramatization prevents me from actually getting into the story. The male voices are the worst. Usually I complete a book before moving on to another, but this book required breaks. Just couldn't listen for very long even though I've enjoyed Sarah MacLean's books in the past.

Oh, it kills me to not enjoy a Sarah MacLean book. And I hate to write a less than stellar review. But this book was not enjoyable. The writing was fantastic, as usual, and the dialogue was typical SM, witty and fun especially when the sisters were involved. I just didn't like the entire premise of the story. And the whole regency version of The Bachelor was a little much. The plot is available elsewhere so I'm not going into it but there was too much angst and annoyance for me to enjoy. Sure, a good book will tug at all emotions and I like that. This book just made me uncomfortable and finishing it was, frankly, a chore - something no other of Sarah's books has ever done. She's a fabulous author but this is not her best.
Justine Eyre does her fabulous good work with the narration of the audiobook. At times it was difficult to determine right away which dialogue was spoken and which was only thought. Not the narrator's fault but something authors may want to keep in mind.
I'm so disappointed by this book. I assume Sarah MacLean will give us more great books in the future.
