I love books! Discovering Audible, I've fallen in love with characters even more that I once read aloud to myself!
But it's hard to. After book one, I had to get book two thinking if I read the second book, I'll have a better understanding of what was wrong with her (I know the basics, but my God, her character, to me, just didn't develop into a mature woman). Her attitude came off as indecisive, love/hate, whinny and childish.
I love Gideon, not because of everything he is, but because he's a bit more of an adult in the relationship than Eva, like the whole trust bit. If you love someone so much, trust the damn guy! He hasn't given you a solid reason not to for Christ sakes! Of course he doesn't want to tell you his past, some people don't just open up so fast and tell you everything, patience is a freaking virtue Eva, get off your high horse and just be there for your man, even if he doesn't feel like opening up! When he's ready he will, so lay off! Jeez, sorry for the ranting but it just kills when I read about a female character scratching to get into a man's core - some female leads need to back off and not be so needy. Anyways, it's a good read. The writing seemed non believable, like when he says her name during sex, just didn't sound right or maybe the narration wasn't believable but hey who am I to say, just an opinion. I wish there were more male narrators....that would be awesome. I don't think I'll continue this series, I wasn't drawn after the second book.
Happy listening all!
This book was a stressful read (listen)! (I found myself commenting out loud on more than one occasion). It was so much going on, so many ups and downs and I never knew for sure what was coming next. It was dark in some places and there were a few things that were simply disturbing. I know it’s “just a book”; but it can be seen as a reflection of some real life, unhealthy, struggles some people have. Maybe it bothered me more than other readers because I’ve experienced some of these struggles. If you’re good a staying in the mindset of realizing it’s just a book, I’d say go for it; otherwise, I’m not really sure. I enjoyed the book; some parts were just really hard for me to get through. Think Fifty Shades Darker... but much darker.
I read all of the Fifty Shades books and needed something to quench my thirst until the next book came out. This series is good. Just as dramatic, thrilling, and kinky as Fifty Shades. You will love the series!!!!
