Audiobook: Maxie by Kimberly Dean, narrated by Josie Kurz (Triple X Book 2)


It’s just pretend…but nobody wants to stop.

Maxie’s quiet, predictable routine is shattered when she steps outside her flower shop and almost runs into two women. It’s not the near collision that’s startling. It’s the strangers’ faces. It’s like looking in a mirror times two, and it sends her into a dead faint.

Sheriff Zac Ford sees three identical copies of the woman who’s caused him more sleepless nights than he can count, and it stops him in his tracks. Maxie’s buckling knees snap him out of his trance, and he catches her before she hits the cement.

Two sisters she never knew she had? Maxie can’t deal with this turmoil, not on her own. She needs a shield, a rock. For the first time in her life, she takes a wild leap of faith.

When Maxie calls him her boyfriend, Zac has no trouble playing along. It’ll give him time to figure out what these “sisters” want. Soon, though, for-show kisses get hotter and playacting touches grow bold. And Maxie must choose to stay in her safe little world, or grab life by the horns.

This is a sweet small town romance with a delightfully silly and fun premise – a timid young woman discovers that not only is she adopted but she’s one of a set of identical triplets separated in their early childhood. It doesn’t stop there, oh no, Maxie and Zac then fake being in a relationship for… reasons… while both secretly pining for each other.

Maxie is a sweet woman who’s frustrated by her own shyness and reluctance to do anything new, even though she secretly craves a bit of adventure. Adventure like the Sherriff Zac…
When fate/the surprise appearance of two clones of herself intervenes, she finds herself being bold and getting closer to him.

Sherriff Zac is equally adorable, he’s too shy to approach her at first and finds it difficult to communicate with her because of the amount of things she leaves unsaid, resulting in some classic miscommunication.

The story is low on conflict and high on sweet, sweet romance which is just what I needed!

I also loved the narrator’s voice in this audiobook, it’s distinctive and held my attention, and between you and me… I’m hideously picky when it comes to romance narrators. Kurz read the POV of both Maxie and Zac, bringing them both to life with their own distinct voices – I’m definitely going to be adding her to the autobuy list.

I should note – this book is the second in a series, each of the sisters has her own book and it appears that the characters are developed along the way, with their own distinct personalities and very different back stories. I didn’t know this ahead of time but it works seamlessly as a standalone, though it leaves me wanting to read the rest of the series so I don’t miss anything.
