While this is part of the Swift series, each can be listened to as a stand-alone. Each is about a Swift sibling, but for the best listener experience, listen to them in order.
Heartfelt Friends to Lovers
This short quick audiobook was sweet and steamy, friends to lovers romance. This was my first time listening to a Leslie Pike audiobook. The Closer is the second book in the Swift Series, featuring Brick Swift and January Jordan, two sports agents in their 40s who find love again. I loved every minute of it. Brick and January had great chemistry from the start. I enjoyed the “When Harry Met Sally” references, as I recently watched the movie. Brick and January’s easy going friendship was so cute and the quick slow burn made it unforgettable. Brick has a tragic past and is afraid to love again and January is not looking for love. The two find their way to each other and give each other something they never thought would have again.
The narration by Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden is wonderful. They really captured the emotions for January & Brick. Joe Arden is so dreamy as Brick. He can be flirty and charming, but still have the broody sadness over the loss he carries. It was so captivating to listen. Maxine Mitchell as January was perfect. She brought out January’s sassy, funny side and also showed her strength and dedication to her family, friends and work. Joe and Maxine were brilliant. They just made you fall involve with not only Brick and January, but also the whole Swift & Jordan families. I am excited to listen to the next book in the Swift series. Definitely will be adding Leslie Pike to my TBR.

Brick & January!
Short and sweet, this book packs it all in and gives us all the feels. Brick has not considered getting back in the game since the death of his wife. He is fully devoted to his clients and just isn't going to make the time for a relationship. Then he meets January. Ambitious, beautiful and so much in common, he finds himself unable to fight off the attraction. She is only in town to pack up her parents' home, so nothing could come of this, right? But when friendship turns romantic, stealing the bases may be the next play! What happens next is just the perfect pitch. This couple is a little older, which makes this listen for me even better. They both have a good sense of who they are separate and it's so much fun to see the meld together! And the ending is just icing on the cake. It's a fantastic story at a second chance at happiness and a great addition to this series.
Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell continue their narration of this series. Their chemistry oozes straight into this couple, making it impossible for us not to feel it. Arden plays Brick with that wall around his heart and we can feel it melt! January is hesitant, but wiling and Mitchell uses her nuances to make it happen. Love this team when they narrate together. It truly is magic.
