I bought this based on the blurb and thought the premise was a good one. I was a bit disappointed on all fronts. My first impression was of the production value. Not being produced by one of the major houses may have had something to do with that. The background had a tinny, echoing quality that is apparent in the very beginning. I guess the monotonous narrative and inconsistent story line helped me forget about it though. The characters Wade and Jared could have had so much more depth. The backstories of both
needed to be fleshed out more for any type of understanding. The narrator sounded as though he was just doing this for a paycheck - and not a substantial one at that. The ending was much too abrupt and left me with more questions than answers. I won't be seeking more from this author or this narrator. The plus side is that I paid less for the audio version than the ebook.
Sweet, touching, comfortable.
I love how Kelly's family rallied around Walter when his own family let him down.
He has a soothing voice that's very easy to listen to.
Anyone, if you're paying attention to these reviews, please make Heidi's entire catalog available through Audible. Her books are wonderful and in my opinion, way overdue for a good listen.
It ranks way up there.
Bailey is my fav. He's intelligent with a dry wit who doesn't suffer fools gladly. I could be friends with him.
This book surprised me. I came for the narrator but stayed for the story.
As per usual, Gomez Pugh brings his 'A' game to this audio. I love the characterization of each voice. I can't imagine anyone other than him narrating this series.
I like the fact that Victor would protect Lisa from everyone, including Jacob and herself.
I love his version of Ms. Mattie. She's awesome.
Secrets and lies, much to despise....
Every book gets better and I anticipate the next one even before I finish the current one. They can't be released quickly enough for me. Great job Jordan and Gomez. Next please.
I love this series. I like the way the characters from previous stories make appearances and Tyler Stevens is a good fit. Hope to hear more from both Ms. Hayes and Mr. Stevens.
George Somerset is a wonderful narrator who is great with distinctive voices and he emotes very well.
Offhand, I can't think of one.
Fen. He was quite funny but also very sensitive and such a good friend. I'd love a story about him.
Whoever is reading these reviews, more Somerset please. M. J. (Hint, hint).
Tommy O'Brien brings something extra to the audio version. I really like his narrative style.
Just the other books in this series. Familiar characters and all.
Yes. Shy, by John Inman. I love that book and it's the reason why I bought the audio version of this one. Sometimes no matter how enjoyable the printed version is, a bad narrator can put you off. I've passed on many audiobooks because of terrible narration.
It made me laugh, but some parts of the story made me angry and sad.
I pray that the rest of the series will be available through Audible and that they keep this narrator. Theyd be crazy to mess up a good thing.
Wonderfully written story
I love how Leo stood up for Alex in front of his family. Great show of solidarity.
I'm going to say that I really like Nick Russo's narrative style in most books, but I feel as if he was phoning this one in. First off, the story took place in England if I'm not mistaken, so it kind of threw me that there was no British narrator. This being said, I could have overlooked that if he had sounded like the content was interesting or read with a bit more feeling. Unfortunately, his performance weighs down the great story that made me want to listen to it.
An Unlocked Heart - Throw Away the Key
I'd love to listen to more of Ms. Well's books, with the proper narrator. If you want to hear Nick at his best, listen to Chasing the Sun. He does an amazing job with that.
I love the Psy Cop series and impatiently await the release of the next one on Audible. Gomez Pugh IS Victor Bayne and Jordan was brilliant to pair them like fine wine and cheese. Oh, wait; like Body and Soul 📕📗🌈
I wish that I'd purchased this before Xmas. Such a heartwarming and charming story. Tim is such a sweetie with a big heart. Glad that Noel came around and ended up being someone worth loving. David Gillies is fast becoming one of my favorite narrators. His voices for Rudy and Jack are quite sexy. I hope we hear more from him.
I was hesitant to purchase this installment of the series until I listened to the sample. I liked the first book, but the narrator wasn't right for it. Mr. Gillies is perfect. I'm not sure if he's an Aussie, but he did a wonderful job with the accent. The only issue I had (and it's a personal thing) is that Greg never got comeuppance - at least on the page. Perhaps there will be a third book in the series?
