✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Pining for You by Lydia Michaels


Pining for You
Jasper Falls, Book 4
By: Lydia Michaels
Narrated by: Lucinda Gainey

An unexpected job offer to work as a nanny for the most eligible bachelor in Jasper Falls, leads to an unforgettable Christmas full of drama, mistletoe, wannabe mob bosses, and mayhem!

Rhett Buchanan has single-handedly revitalized Jasper Falls since taking office as mayor. This handsome, single dad appears to be the picture-perfect man, but beneath all that small-town charm, he’s hiding a dark past.

Skylar Marcelli is relieved to move out of her overcrowded, childhood home and into the mayor’s mansion as a live-in-nanny, but her boss is sexy to the point of distraction, and his high expectations leave her eager to please...

The holiday rush slides into a holiday crush, when cold winter nights heat up with sexual tension, an explosion of passion, and an unforgettable Christmas punch that lands Skylar on the Naughty List and at the center of a Jasper Falls scandal.

If you love big family chaos, warm holiday traditions, and age-gap romance, you will love Pining for You!

Also includes: An original holiday recipe for Holiday Irish Cream - the perfect gift for a chaotic, big family Christmas!

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Four books into the Jasper Falls series, a series full of terrific characters and great couples. That said, Skylar and Rhett are my absolute favorite couple so far. They have great chemistry, and they do get steamy, but my favorite thing about them is that they just make me smile. From the beginning, even before they become a thing, I was smiling and rooting for them. Rhett has some major self-worth and trust issues, and Skylar is perfect for bringing some perspective into his world and showing him what's most important. We do get an antagonist that I really enjoyed hating, but that character's antagonism is wonderfully tempered by an adorable little girl who is a total scene-stealer. The story leads up to Christmas and includes some hilarious moments with Skylar's larger-than-life family. And of course, we get a bit of angst before the happily ever after. Lucinda Gainey gives voice to Pining for You, and as expected, she captures the feel of the story perfectly. From the emotion to the silliness, it's all right there in her performance. This is a holiday romance, but no matter what time of year you listen, you can't help but feel some of that holiday spirit.
