New Audiobook Release Review: Good as Gold by Sarina Bowen


Good as GoldGood as Gold by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It was so good to be back in author Sarina Bowen's True North world. Good as Gold treats us to Mateo Rossi and Leila Giltmaker's love story, told through both chapters in the past as well as the present. Friends to lovers will always be a top trope for me, and this story was both sweet and heartbreaking and had me rooting for them from the start. I truly felt recently divorced Leila's anxiousness and eagerness to have a child and loved that Matteo was so eager to help. It was refreshing that there really wasn't any awkwardness once they decided on their arrangement and I loved that their attraction to each other slowly turned to lust and more. I got teary with happiness at the end of the story to see it all come together. I listened to the audiobook and Jason Clarke, one of my favorite narrators, did a great job bringing Matteo to life. Lessa Lamb, who performed as Leila, was new to me, but I loved her voice and will definitely be checking out more of her work. Although it was great to see both people and places from other True North books, Good as Gold stands alone and would be an excellent introduction for anyone not familiar with the universe.
