I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Seventy five percent of this book annoyed the hell out of me. It was a lot of filler material to stretch the story to three books when two books would have been enough. All the passion and love I felt between Eva and Gideon in the first book turned into obsession and darker than I would have liked. These are two people with what sounds like borderline personality disorder in a very disfunctional relationship were both used sex instead of talking. Sex to show love, sex to punish...
The last two hours of the audiobook is when things pick up in a very unexpected way. I never expected what happened and although some questions are answered I was left with a million more questions. I found it funny how insane several characters are. Eva, Gideon, Cari, Eva's mother and Gideon's brother all need to be medicated. So basically if you start getting annoyed by their constant fighting, jealousy and immature tantrums, please keep listening because the end is well worth it.
Narration: Jill Redfield did a very good job again. I give her five stars but four to the producers because there was some background noise and she sounded too low sometimes. She's so good as a narrator that she made Eva extra annoying with how needy and immature she sounded and Gideon so so so criptic.
The last book of the series should come out in December and I can't wait to see how Eva and Gideon can make their relationship work on the long run with less drama, if Cari will be able to be monogamous and what's up with Gideon's strange brother...
3.5 stars. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one just had way too much agnst for me.
ranks in about top 25 % , great listen
you learn more about Gideons past and what happened to him when he was younger.
i think she is a great narrator!!
My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except
Love a good romance
Up with my favorites
Great would listen to her again
Both books are an emotional roller coaster ride
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Really strong voices. Each one has their own story and voice. I love that they didn't blend together.
So this probably defeats the purpose of the book, but I found myself wanting more talk and less sex. Weird hey? I know. In this book we delved more into of Gideon's problems, as well as more of Eva's past. I was rooting for them, and was bothered by sex being the answer to everything for them. However, I am really looking forward to the third book. And by the way...did anyone else see that ending coming? Not me!
Another great book that follows Bared to You. I can not wait to read the rest of the sequels.
i live in the kentucky bluegrass and enjoy coffee in the morning while listening to a great book.
i listened to this book several times and i couldn't get enough. if you loved the first one in the series (Bared to You), then this won't disappoint. Gideon's story takes shape in this book and the ending about sent me over the edge, making me so excited for the third book. i loved this! couldn't get enough!
I used to be an avid reader of Romance novels. I usually preferred the Harlequin & Silhouette series''. I would read several books a day over the summer and several a week during school months. I took a long break as an adult but have gotten back to it this year and am very much enjoying my Audible experience. So far I still really like general Romance but have found a real unexpected joy in Supernatural & Paranormal Romances.
Both of the books in this series so far have been really difficult for me. The emotions that are being dealt with are very raw and real. Jill Redfield brings them to life so thoroughly that I can't help but feel them, even when I try and distance myself and remind myself that it's just a book.
I still feel like the two main characters use sex too much to keep each other in check and work through things that they should have talked through. But, I'm very happy to say that the latter half of this book started to resolve some of that.
This one has a twist near the end that is surprising and I can see some potential resolution on Eva's side of the story. Gideon's is still a bit of a mystery but at least he's talking about it and she's power through the hard stuff.
I feel better about the potential for a 'happy ending' after this book.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I did enjoy the book by the end but like the other listener I found the angst a bit much. Having said that I could not put the book down and enjoyed the ending. Jill Redfield did and excellent job narrating.
I don't have time to sit and read, but I have plenty of time to sit and listen! :)
...well not really, but by the end of this book you will think he is.
I have read other reviews and people were let down. I was not. Yes the plot can be frustrating but that's because you are suffering along with the characters and that's never fun but that's part of the story. Suffering, longing, lingering.... yearning. If you wanted these two to grow up and get off the roller coaster ride than this next step had to be taken. Well not exactly LIKE this but that's what makes for a good read and a good book.
I have to say, I am enjoying this way more than... 50 who? :)
And I still believe Jill Redfield makes this audio soooo worth it. I can't imagine someone else reading this story to me. She is still perfect and delivers exactly what I needed.
I am completely satisfied after reading these two books and now.... just waiting on the third. Tick Tock, hurry UP! :)
