All Megan Harts books have deep emotion, often twisted from rough handling that she explores ruthlessly through sex, sensuality and love. Though some of her themes stem from the darker parts of the soul, this is the only one of her stories that is really sad, however. The fantasy aspect is believable, and almost more credible than the choices Bess eventually makes. Bess as an emotional doormat is too far fetched. Some of the mistakes are just not realistic. Andy is too awful and the other characters? Some of their actions are too shallow to keep the reader sympathetic. Maybe the fantasy is meant to be the real part.
Regardless, this book is quintessential Hart. She writes books so well that you cannot go wrong picking this up. I would not recommend this be your first novel to read. Strangers is my favorite. Dirty and Tempted are good too. Read them first.
I hope audible offers the Order of Solace books sometime, too.
But this book bored me. I skipped through a lot of the book. The intimate scenes were kinda hot, but after a while, they, too, got old. Nick, to me, had no redeeming qualities aside from the fact that he was, apparently, good in bed and Bess was weak for putting up with Andy for 20 years. Sadly disappointed that I wasted my monthly credit.
I don't know what I expected but it was not to my taste. The basic story was good, and the fantasy part was okay but the erotic was not to my tastes. All it all I would say just okay. Good narrator.
The story had so much potential but had a disappointing ending. The characters were ok and the story was so intriguing but the truth about Nick's life status was a sad truth. I would compare it to Charlie St Cloud. Ultimately, it is not a book I would recommend.
Yes!! Good story, and the narration is wonderful!! Savannah Richards is the best!!
You won't be disappointed!! Great story line, and narration!!
This book disappointed me. It involved ghosts which I don't like to read about. It also didn't have a lot of action, the main character mainly traveled from her home to the candy store and back. Very boring for me.
Now, Then, WOW
The flashbacks made a great impact on the story. The flow was natural and powerful. The look backs in the given sequence left me wanting more and expecting to hear the other side of things. Looking back gave greater depth to the characters and made me love them, or hate them. even more.
Deeper is the story of a mistake that changed the heart of one woman and the men who loved her.
Another great story of passion and self-realization by Megan Hart. She pulled me in from the start, kept me coming back and listening for hours at a time, an ending that makes it all come together seamlessly, making me want to seek out another story by her.
Believer in what you can't see
I only have the audiobook, but the narrator brings every character and scene to reality.
When the couple realizes that Nick (lover from the past that is a phantom) can't leave the boundaries of the house and at that moment they know they have to leave each other.
Nick was my favorite. He was very dynamic, even though he was limited to his action in the home and beach. When he reenters the ocean and return to the afterlife, it was heartbreaking that the couple had to part.
The past is never what you remember it was.
Megan Hart does erotica very well. The stories are smart and sexual but not to slutty.
I love books, but busy mom that doesnt have time to read them. So having audible has been a blessing to me. Shower or car listening is great
I started this book, never before listening to Megan Hart.........
I wasn't real excited about by the story and frustrated that the story was kinda moved slowly........
BUT THAN YOUR SUCKED IN AND UNABLE TO WALK AWAY!
And there's All this hope for some thing to be.....but just not possiable ( trying not to give anything away). And you ride the emotional ride right along with the main character and yet nothing is predictable and you are amazed till the last page of the book at what is hidden all along.
WOW!!! Very well surprised,
and the only reason I did not give an over all 5 was its not one of the books I love so much that I would read it over and over again.
But have no regrets in using my credit for.
Once again Megan Hart pulls me in and i can not stop listening. I was a little confused at first from jumping from now to then but it went smooth. As usuall it made me cry and laugh and cry again. Must read
