Audiobook review

Let's start this off with a few words about the narration. The narrator, David Gilmore, was ok to listen to. He had a pleasant voice but I felt he had a limited set of voice differentiations for the different characters he was portraying. And at times I also felt that he was only narrating the book and not really trying to add that extra depth of feeling, truly being there with the characters you know. This is not a unique phenomenon as I feel that many narrators end up there, i

I first met Nash toward the end of book 1, ‘Til Death do us Part. However, given that story was more about his fiancé’s presumed dead husband, Sam, I never really got to know him, until now.

To Love and to Cherish is a great story of love lost and love found. I enjoyed the budding relationship between Nash and Emmitt. Emmitt’s grandfather is a gem. I would’ve liked him to have more page time, but he took a backseat when a freak accident saw Nash, the caregiver, become the person in need of care.

After reading the first book in this series, I was instantly drawn to this author. And after seeing how poor Nash's world was shattered around him in that book, I was so glad to see he'd have his own story here in To Love and To Cherish. With what he went through, he really deserves his own very happy ending! And while the way it happens here in this story is unconventional, in the end I had a huge smile on my face :-)

Nash was so sweet in the first book of this series, so after the way that end

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I did read the first book in this series ’Til Death Do Us Part, and really loved it! I was very excited to get the chance to read about Nash and see how his life continued on after Henry and Sam's reunion. I really felt sorry for Nash in book 1; he did nothing wrong (nobody did) and his whole world turned upside down.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first, but it was still good. Part of the problem is that I didn't really FEE

Oh, how I love this novel. It has shot to the top of my favourite Addison Albright books. I adored Okay, Then, ’Til Death Do Us Part and From This Day Forward But: To Love and To Cherish this novel, I will. Forever and ever, Amen. Or thereabouts.
I've always had a soft spot for marriage of convenience stories, so to be gifted one by a writer I love, featuring a character who so deserved his own happy ever after, was a treat in itself. Reading it was akin to scoffing a supersized choc nut sundae

Addison Albright’s To Love and to Cherish is not recommended to read as a standalone, and contains a number of spoilers for the first two books.

Nash hasn’t had an easy time of it. When his fiancé’s husband, who everyone thought died in a plane crash, is found on a deserted island in the South Pacific with three other survivors of the plane crash, it’s Nash who ends up the odd man out.

To Love and To Cherish by Addison Albright

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. To Love and To Cherish is an installation in the Vows series by Addison Albright. This book features Nash, a “minor character” from the book Till Death Do Us Part, giving him his own continuing saga. The introductory blurb gives the reader this information:
Will Nash find love again? Of course, he will. Will he go about it in the usual manner? Now that’s another

A Joyfully Jay review.

Okay, so my synopsis reads like a train wreck and I know I’ve called out other stories for being over ambitious in terms of plot devices…and yet, all this just seems to work here. I am sort of in awe with the way Albright is able, once again, to pull together so many different elements into a cohesive whole without making the reader feel overwhelmed.

First, although Nash does appear in small quantities in the prequel story (Til Death Do Us Part) and is the catalys

If you read 'Til Death Do Us Part than you remember Nash. Well all the YAY's because he got his own story!

Nash is heartbroken and with good cause. Nash's prior engagement shattered and he's unbelievably sad. He goes through the whole"No love is good love," mentality in this story.

The complexity the author brings to Nash's character is truly brilliant. I thought how Addison was able to weave the layers of him together to be amazing. He's sad, then gets amnesia, thinks he's not sad, then remembers

This sidebar sequel to the somewhat absurd first in this series focuses on Nash, a nurse in Seattle who got jilted when his fiancé's partner returned from the dead as an island castaway. Now he's couch-surfing and dissolute about love.

Through a senior patient, he gets more familiar with handsome Dr. Miles/Emmit, who's the patient's grandson, who then proposes that Nash be an in-home care for Emmit's "Grampy." For some reason, he then offers Nash a wedding proposal as if it's a matter of convenie

I was given a copy of this book free by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

When I requested this book I didn't realize it was book 3 in a series. To be honest it was fine, you can safely read this book without having read the previous ones. Yes, there is some reference back to things that had happened but it didn't stop me enjoying this story.

Nash is a nurse and currently living on his best friends couch. One day a surgeon at the hospital asks him if he would like to talk about lookin

2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: To Love and To Cherish Addison Albright
1) The perfect light read, with the plot taking enough unexpected twists and turns that the story got never boring. Very nice. :-)
2) This book was nearly a perfect romance in my opinion. Good plot development with trope twists that somehow managed to be surprising and fresh. Setting was generaly well developed, but accent was on character development and wow, author did a great job of it too! It had funny parts, alert

*Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by the author/publisher for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.*

To Love and To Cherish is the third book in the Vows series and can be perfectly read as a standalone, which for lack of more time was what I did. However, even if the characters from books 1 and 2 are mentioned and we get enough of their backstory, considering the quality of this book, I truly think you'll be missing out if you don't read the first

***Audiobook Review***

This is the same vocal performer as in the first 2 books…not one of my favorites, but I’m picky. He did show some good emotion but there wasn’t much change between characters voices and there was a couple of times I was confused about who was speaking until it was called out.

Again I’m torn on this story…I think maybe the author’s writing style and I just don’t agree. I apologize if this is a bit spoilery but I don’t know how else to share my thoughts. I would have liked to

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted the AUDIO file of this book.

Nash needs a new job, and Emmett (apologies if I've spelt it wrong, I listened! ) needs a live nurse for his grandfather. But Emmett also heard Nash say he wants love, a partner in life. Nash agrees to Emmett suggestion, and then is involved in a accident that causes him to lose the last four months. Nash falls in love with Emmett, and then his memories return.

I listened to this, David Gilmore narrates. He is a n

This was such a heartwarming story, I couldn’t help but fall in love with almost all the characters. Nash Marino has given up on ever finding true love. He’s become a little pessimistic and believes love doesn’t really exist, he’s happy to settle for some hot sex and someone to cuddle up with.
It’s sad that his outlook on life and love has changed but you can’t really blame him. He went through a bad breakup, if having his heart torn into pieces wasn’t bad enough he was also humiliated in the wo

Nash Marino is feeling jaded about life and particularly love. Left by his fiancé two weeks ago, Nash no longer wants love in a relationship. He will settle for monogamy, companionship, and of course regular sex. When he discovers a man, who believes in the same thing and also needs a live-in nurse for his grandfather, Nash figures he has it made. When a freak accident leaves him with amnesia, Nash’s outlook changes and he thinks love is his.

I read this one before I read the preceding story. I h

Nash who is a nurse was dumped two weeks before his wedding by his partner of two years, Sam, after it was revealed that Sam's husband who was presumed dead four years before was alive. Nash crashes on his best friends couch Harley.

My review of the audiobook:
Story: 5 stars
Performance: 4 stars
Overall: 4 stars

Poor Nash was so screwed over when Henry came back from the dead and resumed married life with Sam. The first two stories in the series were good, but they hurt my heart when it came to Nash. I was so glad for him to be the focus of this story, so he too could find love and happiness.
The majority of this book is nowhere near true to life, and that's okay. I'm not always a fan of the amnesia trope, but I liked how it was

I really enjoyed this character driven romance between Emmett(Myles) and Nash.

I have not read the first book in the series where Nash gets jilted after his fiancee's husband come back from the dead and I was happy to avoid that angst.

However, the exploration for what that dramatic event meant to Nash's life after was well done.
This books has two really kind heros, a marriage of con or practicality really, and amnesia.

I don't tend to love amnesia plots but this one is really well don

When I left Nash in 'Til Death Do Us Part, there was a feeling of pity and frustration. He was so angry and bitter, justifiably so. I'm so glad the author gave us his own book. We get to see that jaded man turn into someone who loves and is loved very deeply. Myles (aka. Emmitt) shows us a cynical man about love, but it instantly proves to be an easily crumbled wall when Nash is hurt. Everyone can see that Myles is in love with Nash. His Grampy is a hoot! I liked that Nash's medical issue gives ...more

Overall enjoyable but super contrived plot and several unbelievable plot points. I'm always amenable to suspending belief to enable a story to "work", but TLTC pushed my boundaries. The big one was Miles and Nash's decision to get married in the first place. When Miles proposed out of thin air, it was a total WTF moment. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. Nope. I rallied though and turned a blind eye to other inconsistencies and head-shaking moments (sadly none of which, having finished ...more

I love Addison Albright’s books. Simple as that. Ever since I read Cultivating Love the first time, I’ve connected with her books and her characters on a deep level. There’s something about the realness she manages to convey that speaks to me. She writes about real people, people I would love to be friends and hang out with. Don’t get me wrong: there are a time and a place for the stereotypical romantic heroes. Who hasn’t swooned by the imaginary fee

For those not associated with the first book, like me, Nate's world collapsed when two weeks away from his wedding, his fiance's husband reappears after being pronounced dead. Four months later Nate is sleeping on a friend's couch pondering what to do with himself. He decides that love is a waste and strives for a husband that can give him companionship, monogamy, fun, and share
