I don't think of myself as a romance reader, but I sure enjoy them when I do pick them up. This one didn't let me down. And I'll be picking up the next two as well, so I can read the love stories of the rest of the gang.
Ryder-A bit cranky and rough around the edges.
The narration was uneven. The men's voices were fine, but the women tended to be a little squeaky. His very high pitched, whiney voice he used for the children was barely tolerable, worse than nails on a chalkboard.
Addicted to Audible! I'm always listening to something.
I didn't read the printed version, I only listened to the audio. So... no opinion to this question.
My favorite female character is Avery from book 2 and Ryder from book 3. Avery because she is always so positive. Ryder because he doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is.
See the previous question. In regards to MacLeod's performance. I really liked how he portrayed both female and male characters.
Boonsboro Inn where anything can happen.
I was skeptical about listening to this trilogy. I haven't cared much for Nora Roberts more recent books. But these are worth listening to. For me it had it all, drama, romance, real life family issues. You can't help but fall in love with the family and the town.
I'm a 38 year old Army Wife. My favorite authors are N. Roberts, Feehan, L. K. Hamilton, J. Garwood, S. Kenyon and D. Koontz.
The personalities of each character.
The 3 men making coffins for the little boy's action figures lol
One word...monotonous! By chapter 3 I was ready to scream, shut off the audio and read it myself. The whole point of the purchase was to keep my hands free but couldn't take it anymore. This narrator needs to find a different line of work.
Buy the book not the audible!!
Great story, the narrator was excellent. I can listen to this book over and over. I love how it includes all the other character for the second book.
Some actual conflict and tension between the characters. I guess I like my romance where there are some bumps in the road before the HEA. This one was really bland. I've heard there's a bad guy towards the end but I saw that coming from a mile away. I probably won't finish the audio version but will probably just skim a written copy. The supporting characters which predictably will be the focus of the next two novels in the series don't really capture me either except for Hope. I might read her and Ryder's story because there might actually be some spark there but it is way down on my list.
How phoned in it is. She's done trilogy's way better. Blood Brothers and the one time travel story where they end up in Ireland is way better. Plus, I guess this book is nothing more than elaborate advertising for business she actually owns. Books as advertising material is likely to be uninspired.
Sexy for the men, annoying for the kids, neutral with women's voices.
I would have sent the whole thing back and told her to come back when she's feeling inspired again.
I enjoy Nora Roberts in a guilty pleasure kind of way but I definitely want some pleasure with the guilt.
