I have only read one other Megan Hart book and that was Dirty and I loved it. I read the reviews for this book and couldn't wait to begin listening to it. I found it slow and willing to put it down and walk away. I even considered not finishing cause I didn't feel the stroy was going anywhere. It was about half way through the book that I finally got involved. Over all it was an okay listen.
I have listened to most of Megan Hart's books and have enjoyed most of them, but this may be my favorite. It was a slow beginning, and it took me a while to get used to the deep-voiced narration that seemed better suited for a character who has smoked for 30 years rather than a character who has barely LIVED for more than 30 years. But eventually I got very caught up in the details of Emmaline & Johnny's story. It wasn't as erotic as other Megan Hart books, but I found that I didn't care because there was a lot more than that to this book. The more I listened to, the more questions I had and the more I wanted to know! When there was only 20 minutes left, there was still so much going on that I couldn't imagine how in the world it was all going to wrap up with so little time left.
I've listened to Lily Bask before, and have enjoyed her. I think she best portrays an older and more mature character though. When her voice is light, she portrayed a 31-year-old Emmaline just fine! When her voice is low, she was well-suited for portraying Emmaline's mother. After I got used to the narration, I realized that she was also well-suited for Johnny, with his gruff attitude and New York accent! But my biggest problem was that there was plenty of time that her voice dipped down low when she was portraying Emmaline, which was most of the book since it was written from Emmaline's perspective. And that just wasn't a good fit.
While listening, I was eager to hear more because I still wondered so much about what was happening and how! But my
I didn't like the story. It was weird to me to have a girl who is 31 and a bit of a brat in a sexual relationship with a 57 year old man.. I love Megan Hart books, but this one lacked.. Sex scenes were ok.. But short and repetitive.. Read another Hart book. I had to stop about 4 hours in..
I'm always a sucker for a good love story.
Johnny was my favorite character because you could actually feel his need for EMM and there where things he knew, he maintained restraint.
I enjoyed her performance. The way she said Johnny or EMM, you could hear the desperation. I've already look for her other reads
A love that's worth waiting for
I did not want it to end. As usual, there are things about all of her characters you want to explore further
The story isn't a bad one, but it sort-of reminds me of "Ground Hog's Day" with it's repetition throughout the whole thing. It is a bit frustrating. The narration is so-so, not great, not bad. The sex scenes are delicious, but even those seem repetitious by the end.
I loved this book (I have two favorite Megan Hart books Collide and Naked). This book is full of everything: romance, humor (extremely funny), and a tear jerker. I loved almost everything about this book however; there are a few things….. hmmmm…………. that were never asked/clarified by Emm and confusing to me. 1. She never asked Johnny how he knew her name or her cell phone number. 2. Emm never told Johnny about her dreams in detail but in the end he knew what was wrong with her. I demand a part two.
This book kept me entertained throughout the reading, and it was interesting. My main beef is using Lily Bask as a narrator. I know nothing about her, except that she sounds like a woman in her fifties which was very disconcerting when the character is 31. It made it hard to get into the story, the primness of her voice made it slightly more boring than the writing actually would have been if I had read the book myself and less fresh than if they had gone with a more youthful voice.
This book is awsome. I have everyone of her audio books from Audible. She is one of my favorite writers.
I didn't care for the time travelling part of it, a little out there for me. The sex scenes were great, narration not so.
