The story had a good "cold open" to start, but it took a bit for me to understand all the dynamics at play.
Lots of lovely scenes especially as they explored his color blindness. I felt like I didn't get to dive in deep to totally get wrapped up on these characters, but I did enjoy the story.
If you could sum up Wired in three words, what would they be?
Good Sports Romance
What other book might you compare Wired to and why?
I might go across the pond and compare this book to Amy Daws book titled "Challenge". I really haven't read too many sports romances but I have listened to Ms. Daws book and what better challenge than to pit US football against UK soccer.
Which character – as performed by Rebecca Roberts – was your favorite?
It would have to be Clare. She's trying to make a difference in a sport that's more about men than women. And there's her passion to try and help the military. Clare wants to use her expertise for helping others which came from the loss of a loved one.
Any additional comments?
This was an enjoyable book that made my commute more pleasurable. Clare found something out about Marcus and than set out to help him overcome something that most of us take for granted. He of course was fighting the change that came down from up above tooth and nail.
The story seems as if these characters could actually exist. I could picture the story actually happening with no problem. It sounds like such a great idea. Maybe the higher ups in the NFL need to read/listen to this book.
I had no issues with Ms. Roberts in her narration other than when it came to the male characters. It was hard to come up with a picture of what Marcus looked like because of that. But in no way did that stop my enjoyment of the book. And it wouldn't stop me from listening to more books narrated by Ms. Roberts. I had to listen to the ending twice because it seemed like I was left hanging. Have already put book two in my wish list.
If you're a fan of sports romance, whether you read or listen, you may want to check out this book. Or even see what else this author has to offer. Ms. North grabbed my attention with the idea of a woman trying to fit into a man's world and actually making a mark. Marcus was a man that felt like he was losing control of his world but Clare was just showing him an option to harness it. For me, the romance was nice but I really liked the technology versus the sport connection. What a great way to go about finding a series and falling in love with its author.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Audio Copy of this book.
I sincerely enjoyed this advance copy and will read much more by this author.
The Solomon Brothers is a new series by this author and I enjoyed getting to know a new hero. I liked Marcus’ character because he said exactly what he thought and was a man’s man. I felt he got a raw deal by the owner of the football team but of course it all works out in the end. A good start to a new series!
Upon reading the book synopsis for the other novellas in this series, I’ll be passing on them, as well, especially Celi-bet. It features a NBA sports hero who takes a bet he can stay celibate. Just doesn’t sound in-depth enough for my literary tastes.
Title: Wired, Author: Leslie North, Series: The Solomon Brothers (Book 1): Pages: 192, NFL football quarterback, attractive/wallflower/no sense of style/tech savvy heroine, hero had rough childhood, heroine wants to save soldiers, stop reading at 70%.
