    WOW! I was blown away! I did not expect this. I love Maby narration, so I got this for a road trip. Boy, what great way to spend a credit. Totally worth it. Loved this story. Let me say this right now, THIS IS A LOVE STORY! The basic love story rules apply... i.e. girl meets guy, they get together, break up, get back together.

    Now with that said... the basic rules has nothing on this book. WOW... such a good story and sooo freakin real. Ryan is a movie star and Tarren is a regular bar owner that has never seen Ryan's movies. It starts there. U have to get this book. It is very very long, but very very good. Each character is sooooo well developed, you feel like you know them personally. I loved it. Even the side characters are well developed with thier own personalities. Great Great!

    Ryan and Tarren have issues ( I will not give it away) that try to tear them apart and it so freakin good, I almost wreaked my car listening to this book! I got soo into this book... I felt each characters pain... and let me tell you... they both had pain... SOOOO goood...

    Like I said, Maby is such a great narrator, u just get sucked in. Men sound like men and every female is comeplely different...u can totally tell them apart. Maby is right up there with the Sands sisters. I mean no one is good as Xe Sands but Maby is a very close second...and that is saying alot!!!

    This is a great buy/credit... Matter of fact... this is a must buy/credit!!!

  • "Best in the Dream Man Series!!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I love Kane "Tack" Allen!!!! Hands down the best Alpha Male from the Dream Man Series... with Hawk bring up a really close second....This book is the best of the series, I think... It was like Mystery Man but a bit better, and that was really hard to do, b/c Mystery Man was really high up there on my badassness meter!

    From the open chapter, when Tyra and Tack fought about her job on the steps to the end on the picnic table in the RIDE parking lot.. this book was AWESOME... capitalized!

    The way Ashely wrote this book, you can just feel the emotions and testosterone of Kane "Tack" Allen so clearly...

    I loved all the drama.... the fights and action and the smexness of Tack Allen.. See I can't stop saying his name!!!

    ** Sidebar: Since I actually listen to Own the Wind before I listen to this, to get the back-story of Tabby and Shy in full technicolor was awesome... When Tabby talks about when Ty-Ty almost got hit with the bat...well that chapter was sweet.. when Ty-Ty gets stabbed, that part was EMOTIONAL! I love the fact that I now have history on Tabby, Shy, Elliot and Lanie, and Hopper!!! I so can't wait for Fire Inside...** Sidebar over.

    I really can't find one bad thing to say about this book... Nothing... It was perfection... hence the 5 stars... So wish I could rate more than 5 stars, which I don't do too often...

    Narration was great... same narrator for books 1-3 in the Dream Man series... Actually I kinda wish the narrators would have changed with each book, because all the female characters sound the same from book to book... SO a bit of adjustment is required if you are listening to these book back to back... HOWEVER, I rather have the same narrator instead of 4 bad narrators...so I am satisfied...

    This is a must-have in your audiobook collection... Buy it, Credit it or Sale it... anyway you can get it...GET IT!

    Happy Listening!!

Riva's greatest hits:
  • Bulletproof: A Matter of Time, Book 5

    "Great book, poor narration"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you like best about Bulletproof? What did you like least?

    I love almost all of Mary Calmes' books. Jory and Sam are one of my favorite couples. I LOVE Jory and the way he looks at life, he is so much fun. But I hated the narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between Jory and Sam.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I don't understand why they switched from Paul Morey, he was great as the narrator for the first 4 books. Mr. Gelder has a very nice voice but there was no deviation in his tone for the different characters. Sam is suppose to have a deep, gravely voice and in this book he had anything but. It detracted from the story b/c I have read the all books and listened to the first 4 books with Paul Morey. It really ruined it for me and if Mr. Gelder does the final book, I will not purchase it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absoulutely!!


  • What Binds Us

    "Masterpiece!! Fabulous narration."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to What Binds Us the most enjoyable?

    Everything. The characters, the story and definitely the narrator. He made the characters come alive. This is one of those books that stays with you for years after and you smile about it.


    What other book might you compare What Binds Us to and why?

    The Great Gatsby. The author is a master of the English language.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Magnus – was your favorite?

    Dondi,but all are great.


    Who was the most memorable character of What Binds Us and why?

    Dondi. Although the story is not told from his POV, it is mostly his story as seen by his best friend Thomas Edward. Thomas' romance is also beautiful but it mostly a historical memoir about Dondi's experience.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best books I've ever listened to and one of the best books period.

  • Hot Head

    "Awesome Performance!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    No, but I really enjoyed it the first time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Griff and Dante are awesome characters. I really wanted their story to continue.


    Which character – as performed by Charlie David – was your favorite?

    He did the Brooklyn accent fabulously. He also did a great Russian accent. He really made all the characters come to life.


    If you could rename Hot Head, what would you call it?

    I would call it "Smoke and Fire" I actually didn't like Hot Head as a title.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great story. The only thing that annoyed me is that the angst goes on a little to long. At one point I just wanted to slap both MCs. But the payoff is worth it!

  • Ethan, Who Loved Carter

    "Inspiring story"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a lovely and super sweet story about the love between a man with brain damage and a debilitating shy man with Turrets Syndrome. Both young men have challenges and demons to face. They get together fairly early in the book so most of the book is about them learning to love and trust each other. There is no real conflict and it is a slow read and really sweet. Lots of "you're amazing" and "it doesn't matter what others say about you, I love you." It is well written but pretty predictable and a little boring in spots; no real surprises. Just a feel good listen about two inspiring young men. The narrator does a good job. I especially liked his voice of the two MCs. Worth a credit.

  • "Loved it!"

    25 of 25 helpful votes

    I couldn't put this listen down and am disappointed that there are no other books by this other offered by Audible. This book passed my litmus test with flying colors. My litmus test is whether I can skip/fast forward through the book & not miss anything & not care. If I fell asleep listening to this book, I had to rewind b/c I didn't want to miss an instance. She combines depth with an appropriate level of sexuality--some might call it eroticism/erotica--especially well. I ended the book with a great smile and really enjoyed the characters and their flaws. Her writing reminds me of Megan Hart, and for me, that's a huge compliment!
