Hello and welcome!
The audiobook I want to share about today is a not-to-be-missed story
La Vie en Rose: Life in Pink
By: Lydia Michaels
Narrated by: Brian Callanan
Emma Sanders has always dreamt of being a bride, wearing fancy gowns, pretty pearls, and – of course – falling madly in love. Then life happened. Finding herself one fiancé short of her happily ever after, she leaves the fairytales behind. Some days are simply too perilous for pink gowns and pearls.
Riley Lockhart is the sort of man who can make a woman lower her gaze with only a smile. That he doesn’t realize his charm makes him all the more enchanting. Determined to save Emma the pain of her breakup, he steps in as a friend, but soon finds himself wanting more.
She was just a girl, but she somehow winds up being the strongest woman he’s ever known. Losing her is not an option and when life can’t be tied neatly in a pretty little bow, he holds tight to all that he loves most in this world – his Emma. His hero.
Sometimes the greatest scars are worn on the inside.
Isn’t the cover beautiful? I love it!
The story and the voice telling make it …
a must listen
I picked up this book because I love Mr. Callanan’s voice and I am glad I did.
It starts out like any other story, character intros, showing the dynamics between the main characters. I was zoning out a bit in the beginning at the very detailed scenes, BUT… am I glad the author did that because the twist in the story is major, I mean life-altering major, I did not expect and what happens after is very detailed and eye-opening for somebody who has not gone thru that. It is about love, loyalty, friendship, family, what it means to have those when you need them the most. The book has crazy LOL moments, steamy dirty-talk scenes, and tear jerker ones too.
It ends well, but have tissues ready. Emma and Riley’s wows are just beautiful, the nicknames for each other cracked me up. It put me thru the emotional wringer, but OH SO WORTH IT !!!
I think this is the best I heard so far from Mr. Callanan. He outdid himself in every way, the various voices, the emotions, the passionate delivery made this an enjoyable experience.
Overall – 5 stars • Performance – 5 stars • Story – 5 stars
It has been almost 3 years, December 18, 2017 to be exact WOW time flies since I listened to it, but I still remember the feeling of contentment when finished.
There is a sale on right now, so hurry and get it HERE.
Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
