Luring Levi (Tarnished Saints 2)

Elizabeth Rose
Narrator: Brian J. Gill

CONTEMPORARY: After spending seven years in jail for tax fraud, Levi Taylor wants to start fresh and put his past behind him. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. With no money and not many other options, he makes his way back to his hometown to live with his brother until he can get his life back together. In a strange twist of fate, he becomes the town’s new mayor. When food reviewer Candace Kane arrives to judge an event at the local fair, her path crosses Levi’s—again. Having met seven years ago before his arrest, Candace has never forgotten the night the two of them spent together. That’s a bit hard to do when their one-night-stand resulted in the conception of twins.

“Luring Levi” is a sizzling romance filled with “Will they, won’t they?” moments to keep readers engaged! Candace is a driven woman who readers will find easy to relate to as she tries to balance being a mother, having a career, and cutting out that slice of time for herself. Levi is a bad boy with a lot of heart and plenty of swoon-worthy attributes. Their interactions drive the story forward the most. Some of the circumstances that bring them together feel a bit too convenient and unrealistic. Nonetheless, with the heart of the town and the delightful characters, this is a very entertaining read!

Mr. Gill’s performance helps create a world that is easy to fall in love with. He captures the charm of the town and the true personalities of the characters. While his vocal tone doesn’t change drastically for each character, he still has a way of making each one unique and easy to recognize. The pacing is perfect and keeps the flow going, making it easy for readers to listen to large chunks in one sitting. In fact, they might have a hard time wanting to stop!

This novel is perfect for lovers of contemporary romances and second chances!
