Overall, it was good. There was a lot of character development. I skipped a lot because I found the book and the main character frustrating at times. I had to force myself to listen again without stops to really review it. I loved how the relationship took time, not like 1 month and "we're so in love." It does have HEA, but the drama seem contrived to elongate the book at times. That may simply be me fed up with the "both of us are so damaged and helping each other heal" archetype, so I don't necessarily fault the book.
This was one of the best narrated books that I have listened to.
Paula was fabulous!! I had no idea she was going to be speaking in a Scottish accent and I was blown away! It truly felt as though there was more than one person narrating. She gave such life to each and ever character and she did it amazingly!
I cried through the last couple of chapters!! i couldn't help myself!
This book is one of my favorites. I read it a couple of years ago and loved it. To be honest, I may have enjoyed it more now! I only listen to books I've previously read. Not sure why, I just do.
Paula narrated this book beautifully. She brought these characters to life with her different accents. I fell in love all over again. I have stopped speaking to my family in a Scottish accent in days!!!
This story encompasses everything I want in a book. It was funny, unbelievably sexy, emotional and brilliant.
Life's too short to read shite books, so I admit I quit early on this one with no regrets. This book was so amateurish and predictable I said out loud at one point to no one in particular, "How does this kind of writing even get published?" I need to stop buying these bargain basement, fire sale priced "Deals and Steals" on Audible-- you get what you pay for. The narrator had a passable Scots accent, but its lilting quality--added to the "talking up" speech rhythms most 20-somethings affect, I just had to bail.
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
Ugh! What was all the hype with this book? She wants him but fights herself to enjoy loving him. I was getting bored with her stubbornness. I was tempted not to finish, but I did. It was a frustrating listen (story). Narrator did great, story not so much. I will not spend another credit on this series.
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
I'd heard this title referenced a few times and I put it on my Audible wish list, then bought it on sale. It was absolutely worth it at member prices, let alone a credit. Costello was absolutely the perfect narrator for this story. If you like "Modern Romance" this one is a must read.
The narrator did a great job with accents. I loved the sex scenes and characters. Definitely a romance that I enjoyed!!
This is a romance with a bunch of steamy sex scenes. The story is pretty obvious. Yet I couldn't stop listening. If you're a romantic at heart and you enjoy cheesy and bits that make you think you'd like to have sex now too, then this is for you!
This book offers funny thoughts, language, hot steamy love, forever friendship and most of all, you wanting more.
