I absolutely adored J.T.! Such a great guy--a dedicated athlete, loves his family, idolizes his dad and wants to be the same kind of man he is--what's not to love? Watching him agonize over Angie in the last book had me practically salivating to get to his story :)
Angie's a strong character, though hooo boy, did her parents do a number on her. Her mother's extreme bitterness over her father's infidelity was mind-boggling, and the way it warped Angie's view of male-female relationships is pretty much unforgivable. As a result, it took Angie waaay too long to figure out that J.T. was nothing like her dad, and I spent a good chunk of the book shaking my head at her in exasperation, but come around she did--thank goodness.
Once again here, though, we had a black moment that hinged on a slightly over-the-top reaction from one of the characters since the thing they were upset about wasn't something that had been kept from them at all. It was a brief moment of aggravation, though, and it all was resolved satisfactorily in the end. Plus, the epilogue was abso-freaking-lutely adorable!
And J.T.'s family? Let's just say I'm hoping every single one of those brothers is getting his own book :) (Even Justin...even though he's a total butthead for 95% of this book, I'm sure getting his own HEA would cure that ;))
But Angie's mother? If I never see her again it will be too soon... (shudder!)
The narrator wasn't quite as strong as the narrator of the last book ( The Winning Season )--a few of her pronunciations had me shaking my head, and there were some odd moments in the narration here and there--but overall she did a decent job.
Rating: 4 stars / B+
Would you consider the audio edition of Catching Heat to be better than the print version?
What was one of the most memorable moments of Catching Heat?
I wanted to kill Angie's mom, (maybe kill isn't a good to use) on Christmas Eve dinner. But, it was a good scene.
Have you listened to any of Maxine Mitchell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, Maxine did a good job as the narrator.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Angie confessed her love to JT and JT didn't accept it. It was so sad that I wanted to cry.
