Stumbling into Love by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Narrated by Alexander Cendese and Carly Robins
Standalone in an interrelated series. Contemporary Romance.
This is going to be a mini review because quite honestly, I listened to it before Christmas and my brain has turned to mush since then. It had been over a year since I read the first in the Fluke of My Love series, Running Into Love, but I really enjoyed it, and Stumbling Into Love by Aurora Rose Reynolds has been on the top of my to-listen-to list for a long time now.
“I love you because you love me just the way I am. I love you because you make me feel special, because you make me laugh, you make my soul happy…and because you give me really great orgasms.”
Mackenzie was a tomboy who got stood up on a blind date. Luckily, she met Wesley that night and there was an instant and real connection and she went home with him. But the problem was, he saw the glammed-up version of her that was just for the blind date. She panicked and assumed Wes would want nothing to do with her when he saw the real girl under the makeup, so she snuck out.
“I’ve never felt the need to possess someone the way I feel the need to own you.”
The problem was, she forgot her phone and had to go back.
This was a quick, sweet and light book with a little bit of action due to his job as a cop. She was skittish and he does most of the chasing. I admit, a few times I yelled at her in my head because she was fighting off a great guy. I mean, if she didn’t want him, I’d take him in a heartbeat!
Being one of three sisters who grew up on Long Island just like the heroines of all three of the books in this series makes them have a special place in my heart.
“Love is just a word unless there is action behind it.”
I love how Alexander Cendese does the guys, but his female voices are not my favorite. Carly Robins isn’t my favorite female narrator, but she is OK for light comedies. I just find her voice a little over-the-top.
