Audio-book Version :
Here is an audio-book pairing of Elaine Raco Chase’s work with the voice of Janina Edwards providing the narration. And I have to say – this is another winner! Edwards’ voice is perfectly modulated, with variation in tone and tenor to illustrate the various character voices and points of view throughout the book. This smooth narration enhances the well-written story, and provides a great listening experience.
The story is clever, and it is interesting to remember the changes from the early computer days with punch cards, and ATM’s as a relative new innovation. Aside from those little pieces of technology that date the piece to an era that is not entirely 21st century, humans haven’t changed that much and the author’s character development and portrayal of their emotions reinforces that fact.
Written with a deft hand and a clear ear for conversational style and nuanced emotional impact from well-defined facial impressions and word choice, the characters of Nick and Abby are as real as any two people you may meet in the grocery store. In addition, their romance is sensual and feels very natural, with all of the misunderstandings that naturally appear between two people who often act as if they are reacting to their past rather than their present. The heat level in this book comes not from erotically detailed scenes, but is more depicted in sensual phrasing that is not explicit, and provides the reader with an “oh that is so romantic” sort of momentary warmth.
This is an audio book that will keep a smile on your face, with an ease and familiarity with the characters and their families that feels like coming home.
I received a copy of the audiobook from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

After reading this book, all I can say is: every woman needs a Nick in her life! I love this book. Nick's and Abby's
story brings romance, friendship, love, understanding, acceptance and passion to the forefront of their relationship
and it definitely paid off. Well worth the wait of them finding their one true love.
