I loved all 5 of the books is the series. They were all so good I hated for them to end. I can't help but wonder what ever happened to Holly. I really hope there is a 6th book. Pamela Clare writes amazing stories and Kaleo Griffith is an amazing narrator. I could not put the books down. Please write more!!!!
This is the next book after Ten Tiny Breaths. Takes place in a completely different setting so it changes things up a bit with a college setting. Livy goes to Princeton and struggles with relationships between two different guys, the one she should be with and the one she wants to be with. It keeps you hanging on to see what is going to happen next. I thought this one was really good. Had some humor and of course some drama as the YA stories do. Hard to put down for sure. Worth the credit.
I am a little too old for the YA books but this was still good. I was totally involved and loved the characters. Although not shown, there is a male narrator for the male character. Both narrators are great which always makes the story just that much better. The story was fun with some drama and I couldn't stop listening. Typical in some ways with the new YA craze but still worth it if you have liked them in the past.
I guess this was a reissue from books past and this is the first in the series according to its preface at the beginning of the audio. It was a cute fun story. Entertaining with some comical parts. Very sweet as well. The price is good for the length so I enjoyed it. Narration was okay as well. Worth the price.
Corny for lack of a better description. Could also say "sophomoric". I forced myself to finish it. It was a combination of everything that lacked for me. Sorry.
Well, maybe I'm missing something. It has all the ingredients to make a good listen but really fell short for me and I'm sorry for that. SPOILERS: The h/h relationship didn't seem to have much depth and development. I didn't experience the journey. The ex wife was a good twist but again no journey or depth. The mystery plot was a good idea but again, no depth or development. The crimes were pretty whack but Kenna was running around more worried about what she was wearing to the derby and giving interviews on tv when she is supposed to be hiding out. A couple months in and she still hasn't pressed charges and when she finally sees her ex boyfriend it's like no big deal. He walks away.
As for the narrator, he has a wonderful voice but heads so fast through everything that it tends to de-dramatize everything. That's not too say I like a narrator to talk so slow that I fall asleep but to read so fast that I can't even feel the moment may have been a big part of what I feel was lacking.
I gave it 3 stars for effort but 2 stars may have been enough. Sorry. I just had high hopes. It got a lot of good reviews on amazon.
I thought this was cute. A bit pricey for the length but I caved because I love Kaleo Griffith and he didn't disappoint. He is always great! Love his male characters!!!!
The story is cute and witty and has all the makings for a good light read. Could have been a little longer but still very enjoyable.
I think this was as good if not better than the first. Max is adorable. I guess Sarah can have him but she better apprecitate him! And his accent-Yumm. Both narrators did a great job with Max and Jonathan R. Cole's is swoon worthy! Sign him up for more books, please!!!
Great story! Great characters! Great depth! Loved every minute!
Elle Newlands narration fit this book where I felt that Paula Costello fit "On Dublin Street" and since I think the narration can make or break the audio version I was so pleased. Who couldn't listen to a Scottish accent all day, anyway?
Its bittersweet to not be able to put a book down because its so good but then Im so sad when its over and Im mad at myself for not rationing its time out. :)(. Can't wait for more!!!
First, I liked the first 3 books in this series but there has been so much time between them and book 4 I forgot so many of the characters from the past.
Second, I think this lacked ALOT of the depth the previous stories had.
Third, I had been a fan of Karen White but her male character sounded too much like a relative of Thurston Howl III from Giligans Island which tended to detract from the romance of it all.
That being said, it's an ok listen if you re so inclined. I might have liked it more if the male character's voice was a little better. Sorry....
This is a story that is about two college age kids who are from different sides of the track. The story doesn't get too deep that it ends up beating a dead horse but does touch on current issues that one might face. It's refreshing to see that they can weed through things to find out what really matters in life. Not too deep, not too light young adult story. I'm old enough to be their parents so consider the source. As a parent, it's nice to see characters that reflect maturity and depth that readers/listeners the same age as the characters involved can look at as examples. I can see how it could get 5 stars depending on the listener and their life experiences. It held my interest and the narrators did a good job which is always a deal breaker for me.
