I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
I think that there is no real comparison between 50 Shades and Gabriel. I loved 50 Shades and I really like Gabriel and Julian's Story as well. These books are not as intense as I thought they would be but still a really great story.
The separation and re-connection of Gabriel and Julia!!
When Gabriel took Julia to the apple orchard and proposed!!
I loved this book! It was so good, i listened to it all in one sitting. Some twists were unpredictable, others you knew were coming. it was worth the credit.
We need stronger female protagonists.
It is difficult for me to get immersed in a story when a man is voicing a female character. Everything she says comes across as whiney. If I were reading the book, I don't think that's how Julia would be portrayed.
I'd cut a whole lot of characters out. The contrived conflict feels forced. Reynard tried to add an air of mystery by keeping characters in the shadows. Instead of mystery, it was just really confusing.
I liked the first book. I couldn't put it down. Even after reading it, I downloaded the audiobook. But the second in the series feels rushed. Why must we listen to a half hour of Julia wallowing? I wish Julia had been more secure. The entire first chapter is spent with Gabriel reassuring her that he didn't have a miserable time sleeping with her. What gives?
Also, I don't know what's up with everything being a trilogy lately. There's tons of fillers in the books (for word count, I suspect). They could have easily been condensed and made into one book.
1st book was great, this book was not a good read at all... Ugh... don't buy
loved book two! We learn more about each character and the narration was perfect. I can't wait to listen to the final book to see how Gabriel and Julianne's story ends!
John Morgan makes it believably enthralling and hard to stop listening. Keep writing more novels!
Say something about yourself!
This is the best book. The have told all my friends. This is my favorite book. I can't wait to forget this book , so I can reread it.,, I loved all three books
Them falling in love
The entire book
In my review of Gabriel's Inferno I mentioned that this book was eloquently written and so smart. The author did not fail in carrying that to the second book. Gabriel and Julia are wonderful characters and though Gabriel can come off so sweet that my teeth hurt he also can be brooding and pompous but it does it so well you cant help but love him.
