How much will she risk for love?

Fired from her prestigious job, journalist Allison Wakefield is now working for a tabloid newspaper, and she's desperate to find a way to get her career back on track. Her new assignment, an explosive story involving mysterious bestselling author Jacob Covington, could be the answer. When Allison first encounters the author while visiting her aunt's home on Idlewild Lake in Michigan, she realizes that Jacob is one subject she wouldn't mind getting to know more intimately.

But as they work side by side during Jacob's book tour, Allison finds herself falling in love - and in a dilemma about what to do. The exposé is her ticket to success, but revealing the truth about Jacob's past as an undercover State Department operative could jeopardize his career and destroy a summer romance that holds the promise of a lifetime of happiness.

This book makes me loose interest in the writer

What did you like best about Last Chance at Love? What did you like least?

It was just ok, Gwynne Forster stories are starting to seem so similar you can figure out the end after the first or second chapter. Boring...

Would you recommend Last Chance at Love to your friends? Why or why not?

I'm a sucker for a good love story with a happy ending, but no would not recommend.

What aspect of Cary Hite’s performance would you have changed?

Cary should work on his female voices a little more.

Was Last Chance at Love worth the listening time?

NO

What I liked from this read...


This was a wonderful beautiful read that once you start you will find it hard to put down until he very end. The two main characters Allison Wakefield and Jacob Covington were quite a interesting
pair and being put together whether it was wanted or not was really fascinating to read.
Allison had a job that meant that she had to do what she had to do to get the story and not let no one, not very Jacob Covington stop her from getting what she needed for this story about which was about 'him.' Jacob on the other hand was a very private person that was determined that there were some things in his life he wanted kept that way. With Allison having been fired earlier from a prestigious journalist job due to the fact she hadn't done her job well she was determine that that would not be the case in this job even if that meant that she had to become a under cover sleuth to find more out about Jacob. It was really intriguing when Allison had to make a decision that could cost her happiness. What will she decide to do? How will this dilemma play out? To find these answers pick up "Last Chance at Love" to see how this author will bring it all out to the reader. I found "Last Chance at Love" a wonderful entertaining love story that will give you some food for thought in this well written novel by a wonderful author. Would I recommend? YES!

Sweet and mild

The storyline was sweet, it had a few exciting points; I would have loved it to be more realistic of what African Americans lives. Black men font wear g-strings or bikini underwear, even if very poised and professional our men aren’t so square and withdrawn. You didn’t capitalize on the opportunity to show black love professionalized!

Horrible Love Scenes

OMG, black lovers, not even wealthy to do black folk say thing during sex like, " Get In Me" or "I'm Suspended Here, If I Don't Burst I will Die". And the writer writing things like "Into Her Lover Gate". For real! For the love scenes that that had, I got to where I just forwarded past them.
Just horrible.
This is gonna make me have nightmares.

What can I say? I just love me some Cary Hite...

What did you like about this audiobook?

I'm kind of a sap... So the love story aspect of the book good, but Cary Hite's voice and delivery of both male and female characters made it interesting and enjoyable.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

Though the ending was quite predictable, the author kept me interested in the development of her character Jacob.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

I mean the back stories helped a little, though is could've delved into more of Allison's relationship with her mother and the job with the babies, IMO it would have gave me more information evidence to her outlook on love.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Nothing, honestly he (Cary) brought this book to life even when the story kinda slowed a bit there were times when he made Jake seem so real.
