I loved Elle's and Gabe's story. At times, Elle's personality was a little irritating, but I think that's probably what the author intended. I loved Gabe as the hero, big tough guy that turns to mush when he meets his right match. The narrator took some getting used to, a large majority of her sentences seems to end with a question. At first, I found that annoying, but soon got caught up in the story so began to overlook. Anxiously awaiting Nathan and Ian's story, since we got some teasers in this story and because it's "book 1".
Yes, did complete it in one day though. I did laundry and cooked dinner with my ear buds on! My husband was beginning to get very annoyed because I was totally ignoring him!
Yes, I would definitely recommend this book, with a caveat attached. As warned in the book description and by other reviewers, this is not a warm sappy love story. Duece and Eva's story is gritty, cruel and ugly at times. Thier story is also so emotionally moving at times that I'm am still reeling from the impact of their story. I find myself listening over and over again to the final chapters of the book. I have gone to the Madeline Sheehan website and watched the three trailers over and over. I just can't let this book go!
I don't think there is a book that is comparable. I have read a couple of MC books on my Kindle, but none have had the impact of this story.
It is difficult to narrow down a favorite scene. I loved the early encounters (when Eva was still a child) and Duece's reaction to her. It was obvious, even then that there was a very special chemistry and connection that was only going to grow.
Yes, I did more crying than laughing, although there were a few interactions between Duece and Eva where I found myself chuckling. I sobbed during the final part of the epilogue!
This book is definitely worth a listening credit. I highly recommend! Now I'm anxiously awaiting the audible Unbeautifully. I so want to continue with this story that I'm tempted to go ahead and download to my Kindle and get my fix there and then listen to the story again on my iPOD.
The story between Sophie and Jake was so moving and heartwarming. I've listened to all 7 Sullivan stories now and Sophie and Jake's story is my favorite. I loved all the stories, but this one really got to me. I'm anxiously awaiting Lori's story! I noticed it's already in Kindle format, so hopefully it won't be long coming to Audible.
