And since I’m loving the hell out of it, I thought I would start reviewing the podcast. This will be a bit about the podcast and a bit about the books.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

The night before her million-dollar wedding to steel magnate Dorian Hawthorne III, Olivia Peretti meets a handsome stranger in her hotel bar who quells her cold feet and assures her all will be fine. And all is fine … until the following day—when that same stranger shows up at the ceremony with the sole intention of objecting. And his reason? It’s one that Olivia never could have anticipated.

My top thoughts:

The Objection was my first read by Winter Renshaw, but I’ll definitely keep an eye out for her in the future. The characters were fun and complex, for a novella, and I would LOVE to see where their story goes from here. I don’t think I’ve read a story where the bride jilts the groom… I know, how have I not read that yet? But I liked it and I liked the handling of it. My main complaint – I wanted more! The ending felt kind of rushed.

Who I think would like it:

There’s some humor and if you like strong female characters, I think you’ll enjoy this. If you’re looking for steaminess, this one doesn’t really deliver on that front. There is a sex scene, but it’s forgetable and not at all important to the story. Personally, we could have skipped that and gotten more conversation and time with the characters moving forward and I would have been happy.

Narrator thoughts:

Amy McFadden & Brian Pallino both did a good job and brought the characters off the page well. I think their voices worked well together too, which is always important for me.

Podcast thoughts:

I continue to enjoy the direction the podcast has gone, introducing listener emails and writing advice, suggestions, etc. I kind of rushed through this week and don’t remember exactly what they talked about or who the main podcaster (?) was for the week, but I know I enjoyed it.

4 stars Pretty Great

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 17 year old on the planet. I also have the privilege of teaching Kindergarten. I love what I do and you can expect it to bleed into my posts. Teaching is a big a part of me as my family and reading. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!
