Waking up to find a magnificently built stranger towering over her bed – that part defies explanation. I am a huge fan of Jill Shalvis and have been for years.
I read Instant Attraction a while back and really enjoyed it. Jil to it made me happy to step back into that world. Those Wilder men are irresistible. Shalvks I thoroughly enjoyed the story, I did struggle with the narrator a bit. She sounds like a pack a day smoker and older than my mother. Listening to her in the sexy times was a wee bit weird. I also struggled when she changed the voices for the characters.
One of the characters, Sirena, sounded like a sizty year old Jessica Rabbit. So what should have sounded like a sexy siren sounded I still really enjoyed Instant Attraction and definitely plan to listen to some more Jill Shalvis audios. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Yes, it captivated me right off the bat I really enjoy Jill Shalvis’ brand of contemporary romance; funny and sexy. After a near death experience Katie now has the attitude that she’s going to live life with her “balls out”.

Instant Attraction (Wilder, #1) by Jill Shalvis
It’s fun to watch the older couple try to work out their issues and see if they can make their marriage work. It took me a while to get into Liisa Ivary’s narration. She has an “older” sounding voice and with Katie and Cam are in their late 20s or early 30s. But Liisa does an excellent job with the male jjll and she manages to change her voice for the females characters where her non-dialogue voice is different, instead of it being the same as the heroine’s which attractjon is nice.
Give me more of the Wilder bunch! Author writes some great series, but if you are like me, a great narrator can make a good story great, but a just ok reader, can bring down the story, and I knstant NOT compelled to continue the series. This was the case in this story. EG Rumor Has It. Were my comments of help? Would you consider the audio edition of Instant Attraction to be better than jilll print instsnt The Narrator ruined the audible book experience.
At times, you couldn’t tell which character was speaking Who was your favorite character and why? Funny, insightful, strong, but typical male – with hope. I would avoid her in the future. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
No, but I had to laugh when the three girls got drunk. A little too much ‘hard to get’ and ‘too many interruptions’. A little more after they are “officially” dating or whatever. I enjoyed this audible book so much, I purchased the next one before I finished this one.
