One thing I have problem with a lot of MM novels are that you really get to know one character really well while the other characters motives and thoughts are somewhat vague. I am not saying that it is not described, it's just not really expressed. For example, we get to know about Jory really well in (:A Matter of Time,by Mary Calmes)] on the other hand Sam not really. Well I suppose this could be said about a lot of romance novels. You get to know the heroines extremely well like a good girl friend, but the heroes not really.
BUT in this story we are invited to join both of the main characters' mind and hearts. It makes the story a bit longer and maybe dragging in some parts, but I loved it. I am looking forward to continue reading the series.
This is a sweet story and Amy Lane isnt bad. I liked the characters she created, flawed and at the same time kind and compassionate. The narrator really need to stop screeching in that annoying tone when speaking for some of the characters!
I liked the writing style. The story was also very real. It felt real and I think the author did justice to the content. Well done. The story was a bit long. It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the fact that most things towards the end had been mentioned constantly in the beginning of the book. if felt a bit redundant at times because of this. But I'd still give this book a thumbs up. The characters were well done.
Yes. I would, the voice range has gotten better with time and it will continue to improve, no doubt.
This book was great but long. I was emotionally invested in it until the last 3 hours. I felt like that part could have been done faster and not rehash things that the reader already knows. also, the second guessing became a bit redundant. The book was beautiful and the story was great but not perfect. If there is ever an abridged version, I would be interested in listening again. Well done though, overall, and I am a fan of Amy now.
Honestly I doubt it because I don't have any friends that read gay romance as I am a straight woman and only recently took a chance on something new and different.
Deacon and his devotion and love to everyone in his circle.
yes and he was great as always, at least with the ones I have listened to so far.
Yes, but more than one. When Deacon broke down and cried in the hotel after Crick left. When Deacon lost it when Crick mentioned he wanted to leave to visit his friend's family that died in the Army.
If only everyone could have a Deacon in their life!
The book was good, A bit long. A bit emotionall may want listen in a private place.
I enjoyed the ride along with their emotional and relational growth. The story arch is perfect, I felt like a part of their family by the end looking toward the future with Crick and Deacon. Oh, yes, sexual encounters were hot and realistic at the same time. Love it, highly recommend it.
Good story, but a little too much background, it could have been a shorter listen with the same impact. The characters were good and the storyline very believable.
Amy Lane has out done herself with this dramatic romance. I loved the development of the characters, the storyline and the vivid descriptions throughout. I found myself crying so many times that I had to confine listening to the evenings. I never give five stars but I think this story deserves it. Bravo Amy. And of course, I love Sean Crisden's narration. Beautiful love story that should be captured on film...
