Audiobook review: Every Beat of My Heart by Bella Andre

audiobook cover of Every Beat of My Heart by Bella AndreZach and Heather and Ryan and Vicki found love in previous Sullivan series novels. Every Beat of My Heart brings listeners a pair of HEAs for the couples as they both decide to wed on the same day. The story is marketed as the happy ever after for one series and an introduction to the next series, which comes towards the end of the novella. 

The story is cute and sweet. There are plenty of sexy times, too. It reminded me a lot of the Kowalski family series by Shannon Stacey. I think I would have enjoyed the story more had I read the original series, or at least the stories that bring these two couples together. I never felt lost, but I wasn’t overly connected to the couples.

One thing that annoyed me after a while is that every member of the vast Sullivan clan is super successful. Super gorgeous. Super famous. Super happy. It’s a little much.

Narration: The story is shared via the third person POVs of multiple characters, shifting with chapter breaks. Ms. Kaminsky is best when portraying female characters, with her male voices appropriately but not overly masculine. She adds a touch of emotion into her reading, which adds value to the overall enjoyment. 

I picked Every Beat of My Heart to fit into my Romance Reading Challenge. It was a quick listen, and I enjoyed it more after I finished the initial introduction chapters.
