Amelia's attraction to the masked Count and the intimate details of their affair was intense, but it lacked the quality of the other books in this series. I think that there needed to be less about the other love affairs and more focus on Amelia and the Count.
As for the performance, Justine Eyre is amazing and captures each character perfectly. I really enjoy her skills as a narrator.
This has to be one of the best Romantic Comedies I have ever listened to. It is told completely from Drew's point of view... It was like you were just hanging out with him on the couch as he tells you his story. I laughed so hard ... one of those not so cute laughs with snorts and tears kind of funny. And Sebastian York was FABULOUS... totally believable. I just loved it! I just wish I had 5 more stars to add and give this book a perfect 10!
So I want to start on something positive, I absolutely loved Emma Galvin's Narration. She is one of the best out there.
As for the storyline, I was very disappointed in the fast then slow pace of the book. It seemed patched together and didn't flow well. I felt all their plans happened so quickly and some very important characters lost who they were in the other two books. Allegiant lacks the intensity and building of anticipation. As for the main characters, I expected more from Tobias who seemed to be wimpy the entire time. And Tris seemed too willing to except everything. And the ending was horrible ... I get some of it but way too drawn out ... The last 5 chapters could have been shortened. I was expecting so much more from this book. Now I left heartbroken and wishing I would have stopped after Insurgent.
I really enjoyed this book... It completed the series perfectly. Reed, Dori and Brooke's story lines are so incredibly well written and the ending made me cry happy tears! I will miss these characters. So, if you are a fan of the Between the Lines series, this book is a must!
Seriously... Don't! The sex wasn't even that hot ... Not worth a penny and I am a huge Sylvia Day fan. Narrator was AWESOME! Just bad material to work with.
The story is completely romantic... Liam is the absolute perfect boy friend that Amanda needs. Some of the writing was hard to believe and predictable. All the characters were great, just the story lines need to be developed more.
I am so happy I downloaded the audio version rather than buy the ebook as Leah Mallach and Sean Crisden brought the characters to life and made you completely invested in what happened to each of them. Without that the book would not have been so entertaining.
I was super excited about this last book. It was such a huge let down. The first two books were full of romance and smoking hot sex scenes that had something to do with the overall plot.
This one just seemed like there was some plot thrown in around sex scenes that all started off with Nikki being angry or emotional about something, and her talking about how his touch changes her mind. I think the book would have been better split in two. That way the sex scenes would have made more sense and the plot would have had more time to develop. Who would have ever thought I would be saying less hot smokey sex scenes ...
If you started the trilogy, you will need to listen to this book ... Just try to focus on the plot and not the misplaced sex.
With that all being said, I would love a novella on Jamie ... Maybe hooking her up with Damion's former tennis friend.
I found the information that was provided was incredibly insightful. I find my self trying to not to let any obstacles stand in my way of becoming the best. This book also helped me identify some of my short comings and I was able to make slight changes to be more successful at work. I really enjoyed the stories and it makes a huge difference when you can recognize some of the situations that you have experienced. LOVED THIS BOOK ...I listened to it 5 x and bought books for all the women I work with.... It can make a difference.
I loved all the characters in the book. Diaz and Mac as partners completely balanced each other out. Diaz was intense and focused. Mac was a smart ass and worked in controlled chaos. Their leader Bach was always the embodiment of control and even temperament. All changes when one little girl needs rescued and they discover their new strengths which comes from ...
I really enjoyed the interaction of the team with the addition or Anna and Shane along with Bennett. The book is so descriptive and makes it easy for you to have a complete vision of what is occurring. You can feel all the emotions that Mac goes through and how each character has so much to gain from their new alliances. I don't think I would ever had enough of Shane and would be using every form of persuasion that Mac has at her disposal in the pursuit of MORE!
I hope that the next book focuses on Bach. I love his character and I think I understand what happened in the end ... So excited for more! Great book and excellent narration! Melanie brought Mac to life and made you feel every emotion with such intensity. Patrick was the perfect navy seal and then was able to switch the compassionate Bach making both characters completely believe able. highly recommend!
Avery has a plan ... she is well organized. Zac is her complete opposite and dating her rival Hannah Cohen. Hannah offer Avery a deal that she just can't refuse... Steal Hannah's boyfriend. Avery is the caught off guard by Zac's ability to allow her to feel free. This is a great story with lots of drama and surprises. I really enjoyed the characters and the roller coaster of emotions as Avery finds herself. Bailey Carr did a wonderful job of bring all the characters to life and could make you feel the highs and lows throughout the book. Fabulous work!
The first couple chapters were rough ... but if you can make it through, the rest of the book is completely worth it. So incredibly funny ... I laughed so hard through out. Seriously, there is something great about a modern day fairy tale that is full of Witt and sarcasm. I truly enjoyed Becky's relationship with her best friend Rocher... Gosh everyone needs a friendship like that... Best comedic timing! I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a fun read.
