Publisher's Summary

For the first time, listen to all three books in the Cityscape Affair series in one collection. Performed by Andi Arndt.

Olivia Germaine has already found love. Devoted wife, loyal friend, determined career woman - she’s created the life she always envisioned...until she locks eyes with a handsome stranger across a crowded room. 

David Dylan, alleged playboy and Chicago’s most eligible bachelor, awakens a passion in Olivia she buried long ago. He’ll do anything to prove to her that despite his playboy ways, he’s worth leaving behind the stable future her husband can offer her. 

But in order to accept a love she never thought possible, with a man who could be her soulmate, Olivia will have to let go of deeply rooted fears that could ruin everything.

Everything is what David wants to give her, and it’s what he demands in return. But even as an alpha male who always gets what he wants...this time, David may be fighting for something unattainable. 

The Cityscape Affair box set includes three full-length novels: Come Undone, Come Alive, and Come Together.

Cityscape Affair Series

I absolutely loved the series. While I do not condone cheating I absolutely understand where Olivia was coming from. It just proves that you love who you love and you can't help it. I could go on but I will stop here, but Jessica Hawkins fantastic work. Ten thumbs up.

What a great series!

I just love it when I’m able to get a complete series in one shot. Even better when the series is as good as this. Binge worthy listen, in fact I stayed up all night because I couldn’t wait until morning to finish.

Perfect read for a great weekend

Thus storyline filled with many twists and turns. It puts a unique spin on infidelity where everyone is in the wrong and it is no one's fault. I had to listen to the entire trilogy without stopping. it was that good

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

These three books are part 1,2 and 3
👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Come Undone:
I so wanted to throw Olivia off the tallest building that David builds. She is such a flip flopping whore. Either leave your husband and go to David or stop leading him on. What makes her so sure she is worth David’s attention, or any man. Bill might be an ass but she married him, so she made her bed, now sleep in it.
Not finished the book yet, I’m trying to finish it. Liv is pissing me off.
The narrator Andi Arndt was awesome.
I’ll let you know..........
👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Come Alive:
If you don’t like the characters in book one you won’t like them anymore......
Just starting this book.....
Ok. No difference. This Olivia character is annoying. I hate everything to do with her. David needs someone better. He is I beautiful man,
I can’t finish this book. I might try the next and last book.

So far this series is totally a disappointment. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
Good thing I only spent $13.12 for it.

The dangerous myth to explore.

An interesting exploration of the emotions and dynamics after marriage. My only issues is that finding a David is a dangerous myth. Liv has some pretty realistic concerns in the first book. I don't condone adultery but this book is a good place to explore some concepts and consequences.

Hot, angst, but infidelity? And the ending,... um,

Warning Spoilery-
LOVED LOVED LOOOVED the hero in this book. The heroine drove me absolutely nuts though with her incessant habit of becoming a giant flake, and there were a few plot holes that I would love to see an extended epilogue to clear up eventually- I know, dreamer keep dreaming lol. I would TOTALLY give 5 stars for that though! Why was she passing out and bruising so easily and cold all the time even after eating better/being happy and she never really said why she didn't want kids,... and man Bill was too nice tbh until the end when he got all pissed. I can kinda see why he would be a jerk for a while lol, but man, I'd love to see the kid thing... or at least them considering it after the house

Cityscape Affair Series

Cityscape Affair Series: The Complete Box Set (A Forbidden Love Romance) is a excellently written contemporary romance. The writing is compelling and consistent. This trilogy progresses quickly and doesn't add unnecessary fluff. The story is realistic and fully blended into mini plots to the main story. This love story is intense with heartbreak, real, raw, and character chemistry is hot off the charts. The storyline comes full circle and ends happily.

Andi Arndt single narration performance was phenomenal. Every character emotion was brought out.

A solid listen

I love Andi arndt!

I love listening to Andi Arndt, the series though- I got really sick of the female main character insecurities and overthinking it. Every time there was a problem in the second book it was annoying. You’ll know what I mean once you listen to it.

Olivia is such a B****

Oh God I'm finally finish with this book. Disappointing ending. I was HOPING olivia would accidentally got knocked up, that would have changed poor David situation and possibly made him a happy guy. I felt for that guy. Be strong David in the years to come with that women. You deserve a gold metal for your efforts.

Incredible story that keeps you enthralled

This storyline kept me enthralled for the entire 30+ hours. Olivia is a married young associate editor who is struggling with the image of a successful business woman that she has for her life and the suburban family and kids future that her husband, Bill sees. Olivia is stumbling through life trying to reconcile the two different visions when she meets David who really sees her. Should Olivia stay in the comfortable life she has where something is missing, or should she take a chance on disappointing everyone around her to follow her heart?

My personal thoughts

Book 1:
It took me awhile to get into the story because to me, marriage is for life, a commitment of love. Therefore, this storyline was something I stray away from but decided to try. If Olivia couldn’t commit, she shouldn’t have married. I know people change and love change, I don’t have that experience but it hurts everyone involved. I only continue to listen to it because it was a different type of storyline except for the tall, handsome, sexy and rich guy protagonist.

Book 2:
I found that Olivia’s character is so selfish and stubborn that I couldn’t stand it and wanted to strangle her. She is so selfish in how she makes her decisions for everyone and unable to make up her mind. She knows she wants David, yet she keeps Bill in the dark instead of divorcing him. Then even when she told Bill the truth, she knows she’s in denial but won’t let go of Bill because she doesn’t want to be a divorcee. It took her so annoyingly towards the end of the novel to accept her feelings. Her character in book 2 was so frustrating that I wanted to stop listening but couldn’t because I already spent my credit on this trilogy and I can’t return it.

Book 3:
Someone as persistent and bossy and domineering like David is actually quite creepy and too pushy. Anyways, listening to how they had spark in each other and fell hard so fast is quite unrealistic. I found myself rolling my eyes so much throughout the entire novels, especially the last 2 novels. The author made Bill’s character to where we should understand why Olivia did what she did. Yet she also made Olivia’s character push everyone away so I can’t sympathize with her either for her actions. I was wondering when the author will make Bill’s character despicable and make me hate him so I can start rooting for David and Olivia. However, I still couldn’t hate Bill. Even with all those lovey dovey between the protagonists, I still couldn’t find myself to like their characters. Nothing is worst than betrayal by someone you thought love you.

Overall, the author brought a lot of emotions out of me so that’s a plus for the author. The author made David’s family too good to be true so it was hard to swallow because reality isn’t like that. The storyline is not my cup of tea. This will be my last book on husband and/or wife cheating on each other. I cannot relate to cheaters, so it was really hard to finish.

Loved!

I loved this series! I’m not usually a fan of single narration audiobooks but Andi did such an amazing job that I didn’t even notice. This series was just amazing and I definitely recommend it to everyone! The storyline, which isn’t something I typically like to read or listen to was well developed and it draws you in. Plus, the characters were great. Definitely a must listen audiobook.

One of my new favorites!!

Audiobook Review

This is the second book with cheating that I’ve read, and I’m surprised how much I actually loved this story and the main characters so much. I was a little wary going into it but I’d say a few chapters in and I knew I was going to love Olivia and David Dylan. I mean these two are soulmates and from the second they meet one another you can feel that. Everything about this story and the characters has me smitten and completely blown away. It's a beautiful, emotional, sensual, heartbreaking, angsty read that will not want to let you stop until you’re done.

I think Olivia and David Dylan are two of my favorite characters. This book really sucked me in and had me on an emotional roller coaster of my life. However, this book is 100% not for everybody. If you are against cheating then this is definitely not a book for you and I do not suggest reading it. Just keep that in mind before picking it up.

Andi Arndt did an amazing job narrating this story. Her voice is soothing and very pleasant to listen to. Great job!!

Overall I really loved this series. This is definitely one of those series that I would definitely re-read. I can’t say enough good things about it.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review!
