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.
Please, please, please, do not use Shayna Thibodeaux for any of the upcoming narrators for this REAL series (or any audio book for that matter). She ruined the story for me! If I hadn't already liked Melanie from the previous 3 books, I would have disliked her character because of her voice. Melanie's voice was grating, annoying and so unpleasant to listen to, I found myself checking to see how much time was remaining for Melanie's POV and hoping to hear Jason again.
I loved Greyson and his possessive and devoted behavior. I tried to get past Melanie's voice and actually enjoy Melanie's POV, but it was difficult. All the scenes where Greyson and Melanie interacted and the sex scenes were hot! I think my favorite part was when Melanie awoke from her coma.
Jason Carpenter was great. ANYONE other than Shayna Thibodeaux. Although my favorite male narrator is Sebastian York, when I see he's one of the narrators, I almost purchase the book without reading the reviews!
Anxiously await for the 4th book, "Ripped" which will be Pandora's story. I hope we get to see more of Brooke, Remy, Melanie and Greyson.
I absolutely love the REAL series! Remy and Brooke's story was so touching and wonderful. I fell in love with Remy...and of course with Sebastian York as the narrator, how could you keep from falling in love with Remy!
I came very close many times during the story to take other reviewers advice and stop listening and purchase "Rogue" on my Kindle, just to escape Shayna Thibodeaux, but I stuck it out to the end!
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.
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!
