I have found myself really enjoying romantic stories recently. This one was great. I listen on my commute (1 hour each way) and found myself looking forward to getting back in the car and back into the story. I cared about the characters and thought about them even after I'd finished the whole audio book. The acting/reading was excellent. (That's really important to me.) I would recommend this book highly to anyone who enjoys this genre.
Light, Fun, Frivolous
This book is by no way a masterpiece, but for a fun listen it hits the spot.
The narration was wonderful, and believable, and not all the characters sounded the same.
Joe, he was stable, successful and madly in love without being a pushover.
Pretty typical. No surprised. Nice easy read.
No. It already felt a bit drawn out at times.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
The Kowalski family was a typical big family group. Loved the way they resolved their issues. Shows that marriage can be forever if you work at it, and talk to each other, be tolerant of others views. Kari got a big dose of it, after some soul searching and listening to her heart she admitted she still loved Joe and let him in.
Happily ever after :)
New Narrator for me, she did a very good job. No real complaints.
To relax I listen to my books. It's like yoga but better, you don't have to bend your body!!
Humor, Drama and Love
When Joe cried when she had left him for the second time.
Yes this rates up there with all the others.
I love this family. They make me laugh alot. The couple were definitely the center of attention but the family makes the story. I recommend this book. Thank you Shannon Stacey for this family of books I have thoroughly enjoyed.
Second listen to this author. She carries a similar conceptual theme to the first book but buries it deep within a completely different storyline. Love her ability to wind family into her storys so that you can see yourself playing a part also. Narrator does a great job of keeping to the emotions which make for a great listening experience.
I actually really enjoyed this book. My impression is that female audiences will get the most out of it. However, from the male perspective, I think it is insightful, especially in terms of penetrating the deeper levels of the female psychosis. At the same time, it is inspirational - in the romantic sense. It elevates your sensibilities to a new level. And in regard to sensual, sexual and family matters, this book provides an intriguing perspective. (I almost wanted to give this book five stars. But, I think it is not quite there. Perhaps, the next one.)
