✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Dima by Kenya Wright
Filthy Rich Alphas
By: Kenya Wright
Narrated by: Lacy Laurel & Tim Paige
Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐
I've been stepping outside the box a lot lately, and Dima is one more on that list. I don't read much mafia romance - mostly because it too often leads to selling someone or kidnapping someone, which leads to Stockholm syndrome. Dima doesn't have either, at least where the romance is concerned. and I do love me some enemies-to-lovers romance as well as romantic suspense. I didn't really feel the enemies-to-lovers vibe between Dima and Rose. They do have some fun banter, but it's more that they should be enemies than that they actually were. There is good chemistry between them, and it's easy enough to root for them. The suspense part of this one is intense, which is just the way I like it. I would've preferred getting to guess about the killer a little longer, but one of the clues is just a bit too obvious. That said, it's not a dealbreaker for me by any means. What I enjoyed most about this one was Dima. Having one of my own that shares a particular trait with Dima, I probably laughed a little too hard at some things, but I couldn't help it. So many things were spot on, and Kenya Wright either researched thoroughly or has personal experience. I realize I'm being vague, but I'm trying to steer clear of spoilers. Narrator Tim Paige did a good job with Dima, and his timing and tone were spot on. I didn't feel as much connection with Rose, and I think that had a lot to do with the narration. I usually really like duet narration, but Lacy Laurel just isn't my cup of tea. It's not that she stresses the wrong words but that she stresses almost all the words, and it quickly becomes distracting. So, in the end, this one may not have been exactly my kind of read, but the author has a great eye for detail, and I would read other books by her.
