Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely
Part Time Lover - Grace Grant,Lauren Blakely

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was just a lot of fun! I really enjoyed just about everything about this audiobook. This book had a lot of things going for it with a sweet and sexy story read by two excellent narrators. I have only had the chance to listen to Lauren Blakely's books twice before starting this book but I have found all of the books I have read to be remarkably well done. I am so glad that I had the chance to listen to this fun and romantic story.

This is one of those books that doesn't have a whole lot of surprises but it doesn't matter because the journey is just delightful. I am finding that books with fake relationships are really working for me lately. Most fake relationships in books quickly turn into real relationships and this book is no exception. I had such a great time spending time with Christian and Elise and they fell for each other and their initial meeting really set the playful tone of the story.

Christian and Elise were both great characters. Elise's past was unexpected and really did a great job of giving the reader some insight into her hesitation to put her heart at risk. I usually fall for the Heroes in this kind of book and I had no problem falling for Christian. His personality was just magnetic and he really was a fantastic guy. I really enjoyed that this book is told in alternate points of view so that I got the chance to experience the thoughts and feelings of both Christian and Elise.

I loved the narration. This was the first time that I have had a chance to listen to both Shane East and Grace Grant and I thought that they both did a wonderful job with this story. They both were able to handle the story's dialogue really well and I thought that it was a great decision to have the narrators read the text messages written their characters. I thought that each narrator did a great job of adding emotion to the story and adding some heat at just the right time. I would not hesitate to listen to more of each of these narrators work in the future.

I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was a quick feel-good romantic read that often put a big smile on my face. It was so easy to fall for these characters as they were falling for each other. I look forward to reading more from Lauren Blakely soon.

I received a review copy of this audiobook from Lauren Blakely Books via Inkslinger PR.

Initial Thoughts
This was fun! I loved the chemistry between these two characters and thought that the narration was very well done.

Audiobook Review: Part Time Lover by Lauren Blakely, Grace Grant, Shane Eastwood
Part Time Lover - Grace Grant,Lauren Blakely

 

 

It began with a fantasy that ultimately changes the course of their destiny. Hot guy, intrigued girl and a hauntingly tempting visual began a bumpy road of twists and turns for two strangers. Part- Time Lover can make a believer out of even the most skeptic of romantics. From the beautiful backdrop to the witty dialogue and the heartwarming romance, Part-time Lover is a keeper.

Wanderlust - Lauren Blakely

Joy Danvers-Lively decided to take a new job overseeing the fragrance lab at L'Artisan in PARIS!!!!  She had had enough with her boyfriend, Richard and wanted a break from everything.  Joy has been trying to learn French, but she will still have an interpreter with her during the days at work.  Her first day in Paris Joy wanders into a bakery and hears the most delicious, British accent she has ever heard....coming from a tall, dark man with a sexy butt and he starts flirting with her.

Griffin Thomas has been living in Paris for a year.  It was an item on his brother Ethan's bucket list that they made while his brother was dying.  Just as he was finally able to leave Paris for his next journey, Griffin finds out that he has been reassigned to a different job, not the big cushy one that would have earned him all the money he needed to leave.  Now he has to be an interpreter for and American woman who is an organic chemist.

Griffin is enjoying flirting with Joy.  It's the first time in a long time that a female has excited him since his brother died.  After they part ways, they both keep thinking about the other.  Imagine their surprise when they are introduced later at her new job.  Oh, the fun banter between these two was superb!  Both very quick witted!

As these two spend more and more time together because of work, it quickly turns into more time together after work so Griffin can help her with her French even more.  The sexual tension between these two was explosive.  Once they finally crossed that line it was LOOK OUT!!!!

I really enjoyed both of these characters.  Griffin was chasing a dream and he ended up finding something completely different than he thought he was looking for.  Joy was running from life and ending up finding just what she really always wanted.  I really loved their happy ending.  It was just perfect!
