Author's notes: This was previously published as Cards of Love: The World and has no new content.
While this is part of the Swift series, each can be listened to as a stand-alone. Each is about a Swift sibling, but for the best listener experience, listen to them in order.
I enjoyed this romance! This is a fairly short listen which is perfect for those times when you want a nice complete story without committing to a longer book. I ended up listening to this book straight through and had a great time with it. I really liked that the couple in the book were both in their 40s and knew what they wanted out of life. This novella is part of the Swift series but would work perfectly well as a stand-alone as well.
This book features Brick and January. They both work as sports agents and have had their own success. January’s parents have recently died and she is working to get things packed up with her pregnant sister’s help. When Brick comes to help out, he seems to fit in perfectly. Brick and January have a lot of great chemistry together and I liked that there wasn’t a lot of unnecessary drama. I just loved watching them find their happily ever after together.
Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are both excellent narrators and I thought that they did a fantastic job with this story. Their voices seem to compliment each other very well and I thought that they both did an amazing job in bringing the story’s characters to life. I loved the emotion that came through in their reading. I do believe that their narration added to my overall enjoyment of this story.
I would recommend this story to others. I thought that this was a really well-done novella with fantastic characters. The narration was top-notch and added a lot to the story. I cannot wait to read more of this author’s work.
