I read the reviews on this book and thought it sounded good but I just didn't like it. For me it was soooo drawn out. I like sex scenes but OMG 2 chapters long for one? I kept thinking "get on with it" geez! I think this is one in a series but I won't be listening to the others it just isn't worth it. For me, the story just wasn't that interesting to give it that much of my time. Another one where I was glad it was over.
You know I thought this was going to be a really good book but for me it was WAY to drawn out. They talked about having sex for about 96% of the book at the end, the last 4% I wished they would stop. I didn't find it as funny as others and I'm sorry I wasted my credit on something that I am now so glad is over. The narrator was great so at least it had one positive.
I loved this story although the author really, really, really drew out the love scenes. You pretty much guess why from the onset (although it is not confirmed until near the end). They talked about almost having sex for 80% of the book so when they finally get together you know something bad is about to happen to change it. When Cam gets the news you really hurt for her since she has had such crappy luck with guys in her short life. This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster and the characters will stick in your mind for days. I can't wait until this author's next book. Well done!!
Sad, Sweet, Inspirational
Hunter. He seems like a lost soul with no really family or connections. Through the story you watch him grow up and turn into a real man. The things he sees and experiences through war are rough and he has a very forgiving heart. It gives you hope that some of these guys coming back from overseas have a different side to them - that anyone can love or be loved.
I don't know if I can say I had a favorite because this was a difficult book. I was so sad at so many points and through the characters witnessed a lot of heartbreak. Sometimes I had to put it down because it was hard to listen to the things they both went through.
No, you will need to put it down, it is difficult to listen sometimes. It is a great book and in the end you will be glad you finished it but there is a lot of sadness and death.
This is not a book that I would listen to again but I'm really glad I made myself experience it.
I don't know. I normally love Sophie Kinsella and have read many of her books. I remember laughing so much my eyes watered but this book I couldn't even finish. This book was not funny it was silly and predictable. In my 10 year history of Audible this is only the 3rd book I was unable to continue until the end.
I would get something from Sophie Kinsella again but I would really read the reviews much closer and make sure I don't waste another credit.
The narrator wasn't bad, I don't know if it was her accent but I never really felt the emotions or humor of the story (maybe that is why the book seemed so bad.)
Silly. Just not worth listening because it was too predictable.
A story that didn't act like the reader was stupid. This was the most ridiculous story I have listened to and I almost didn't make it to the end.
That it dragged on, and on, and on, and on. I got to the point where I didn't care about the characters anymore. There was so much "chatter" it seemed like she was just trying to fill pages (with nonsense!)
She has a fantastic voice and makes all the characters different. If it hadn't been for her I don't think I would have finished the book.
I kept saying over and over in my head "you've got to be kidding me!" It was bad. Don't waste you credits like I did.
I liked Beautiful Disaster but Travis always seemed kind of sick in his over crazy attraction for Abby. When hearing the story from his side (what is in his head) it made sense. I know several reviews have complained about the ending, the "where they are now" but, I thought it was sweet and I was happy to see they were still together.
I look forward to Jamie McGuire's next book (whatever it will be). Great author and both narrators for both books were excellent choices. Fantastic job!!
I hate this was listed as book 4 when it was really book 5 (Audible doesn't have book 4 - Eric's story) but I was glad to hear he was happy in this book. I didn't have a problem with the story line (probably because I have listened to all of the other books and I knew what to expect) but it didn't flow. The relationships seemed forced. At one point Trey confesses to Brian that he loved him (a big step) then within 2 minutes he is with Ethan and realizes he is over Brian (a 15 year relationship) and now is in love with Ethan. The 3-way love also didn't work. Narrator was still excellent but the story not so much.
As much as this story is too "out there" for me (not into bondage) the author/narrator pulled it off. Parts of the story I did have to skip forward because I'm a little too squeamish for that kind of stuff but the actual love story was good. Jac seems very sweet but I think in the real world they would both need therapy. Keeping this as a fantasy it was a great ride.
I loved the first Sinner's book so I was looking forward to this one too. Sed and Jessica's story was excellent. In the first book you saw Sed as a broken hearted guy that used women as toys to forget his true love. This book is the love story. As much as you sometimes hated Sed in the first book you will fall in love with him in this book. The narrator, Justine, is excellent (yet again!)
Story is sweet and well written but too young (16-17 year olds). If this was set with even college age it wouldn't seem so off. I think for the depth of the feelings for these characters it didn't match their age.
Not a surprise. Slow, sweet ending just like the start.
I really enjoyed the differences in the voices. However, again they sounded way to old for the age of the characters.
No laughs or cries just as "awe isn't that sweet" feeling.
