SECOND CHANCE SUMMER by Jill Shalvis plus GIVEAWAY

Cedar Ridge series, Book #1.8325048c7db527a390cf103661f0880a

Available now from Hachette Audio.

From the Publisher:
“Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it’s the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there’s an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . .

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .”

From the review in AudioFile Magazine:

“Narrator Karen White enlivens the Rocky Mountain town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. In the first of a new series, White portrays the heroine’s anxiety as she returns home to face a tragic past and the man she left years ago. The hero, Aidan Kincaid, is a search-and- rescue fireman, and the heroine is a disgraced hair stylist. White especially entertains the listener with the playful repartee between members of Aidan’s family. The listener can look forward to more adventures with the Kincaid family.”

From the review at BookFan:

“As always, Karen White’s narration is perfect for this genre and especially books by Jill Shalvis.”

My recording experience:

I was so excited and honored when Jill made the effort to ask for me as a narrator for this new series. I’ve loved recording her ANIMAL ATTRACTION series, but have also read her books for pleasure. Her brand of contemporary romance blends humor so well with real emotion, and I’ve been able to connect with every single heroine. Vulnerable but tough, quirky but shy, Lily was no exception in this book.  Then Aidan and his brothers, plus the adrenaline rushes of the rescue scenes, were a great balance to the romance.  I can’t wait for the next one!

  3. my idea of pushing my limits is staying up past my bed time lol.

    • Ha! Me, too!

  4. Not an adrenaline junkie, though I do teach preschool. 🙂 I do get a rush walking into a bookstore.

  5. Not an adrenaline junkie at all. I always think, “maybe someday I’ll try _____,” but someday hasn’t rolled around just yet!

  6. I can be an adrenaline junkie. I enjoy hiking and outdoor adventures. I am often willing to try new things (rock climbing, cliff jumping, exploring), but very ammeter stuff gets my blood pumping pretty fast. 🙂

  7. Roller coasters

  8. Not in real life but love it Jill’s books. That is enough to get my blood pumping.

  9. No, I’m long past being an adrenaline junkie, but not too old to enjoy reading about high energy protagonists.

    • This seems to be the consensus POV!

  10. I’m no longer an adrenaline junkie, I’ve realized my mortality! Still enjoy reading about them, though!

  11. No, I’m not. Although I do love to drive very fast!

  12. I’m not an adrenaline junkie, but both nieces are.

  13. Oh dang! I’m past the deadline!! 😦 Just finished listening to Still the One yesterday! 🙂

    • And I like to drive fast, but I wouldn’t really consider myself an adrenaline junkie…

    • You’re not past the deadline on this one!

  14. I am so not an adrenaline junkie, give me a spa day instead!

  15. I used to like roller coasters but that ship has sailed. I love a book on the beach under a big umbrella 🙂

  16. I was… I used to race cycles and do crazy stunts. Now that I’m in my 60s, not so much. Thanks for the chance!

  17. Unfortunately, NOPE! I am not an adrenaline junkie. I am a play it safe kind of girl. It makes me feel safer that way. LOL. Rollercoasters make my stomach hurt.

  18. No. I’m more of a lounge in a hammock on a tropical beach kind of girl!
