I was so disappointed in this one. It was what I call...boring!!! I would not recommend it or listen to it a second time. Wish I had passed this one up.
Based on earlier reviews I was expecting more than a overly dramatic, and predictable, romance. Didn't meet my expectation, but reasonably entertaining.
It was just O.K. for me. I caught myself rolling my eyes a lot. I will not be listening to the 2nd book, it just wasn't for me.
I started out listening to books for work and now have become addicted. Every where I drive is a new adventure...
The first half of the book,the attraction between Julia and Gabriel kept me coming back to the book for more. The second half of the book was so very difficult to stop reading as I just wanted to know what came next. I love their story ... And I loved the references to Dante, the Italian, the artwork, the romance. It connect mind, body and soul. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.
Say something about yourself!
I can't get thru the first part. Yuck, Yuck, Yuck.
Over done, wrong narrator. This book is not for me at all.
I read this on Kindle prior to its' release on Audio. Now listening to it. Love the audio version and I was surprised by the male narrator but it so works.
Yes, I am addict... I love books, I read and listen and just can't get enough. I do not like non fiction because it is too much like learning and I would rather dive in and be transported to a new world or adventure!
I have listened to 100's of romance books and this has to be the sweetest. So worth the credit.
Tell us about yourself!
Oh yes and I can't wait for the next book!
There really is no other book that I have read that compares to this one. It does, however , make me curious about actually reading some of Dante's work to understand more of what the characters were talking about and the story behind it.
Hi voice is sexy and sensual and perfect for Gabriel. He did all of the characters voices very well and I always knew exactly who was talking. He's one of the few male narrators that doesn't make the female characters sound like simpering idots.
This was so wildly good that at one point I woke up at three in the morning and had to finish a chapter before I could go back to sleep.
This is the most delicious book I have ever read. It's a hopeless romantics dream, redemption, second chances and true love.
The characters and pretty much the storyline itself..
When he realized who she was.
The voice just did not work for this book. I listened to it twice but still could not get into that voice... good thing I loved the storeyline!
Given enough time..yes. It was hard to turn it off everynight!
I found myself completely engulfed with this love story. While it does play on the classic professor & grad student story line it is a beautiful story & done so tastefully. I am so excited to finish the series!
