As the author/narrator states the notion of the ghost bride is nothing new in Eastern traditions but for the rest of us it is a unique concept. Adding to this unique ghost bride story is a blossoming romance between the would be bride and someone whom one wouldn't think of. Yangsze Choo not only writes a wonderful fantasy romance she truly brings it to life with her wonderful narrations. I hope she writes & narrates a lot more in the near future.
After looking forward to the finale it was very disappointing once I finally got to hear it. The book is incredibly long and just drags the story out way too much. I was even able to doze off for a half hour and didn't miss a thing or lose my place since the story still had not moved on. Sadly the few highlights are ruined because the narrators are just some of the worse I've ever heard. If you're a fan as I was you probably won't be able to help but get this book to know how it end but trust me you're better off reading some Spoiler Alerts someone is sure to have out there. Save your money.
BEWARE THE FOLLOWING HAS A BIT OF A SPOILER ALERT.
I couldn't wait to get started on this book and it truly had me hooked. A broken-hearted girl has her first one night stand with, of course, a handsome rich stranger who happens to look a lot like her ex. By using his money & connections he finds Jessica again & gives her a much needed job. With a new town, new job and a great new friend who is also her co-worker and roommate things are really looking up for Jessica. She even starts a relation ship with her new boss. The sex scenes are pretty intense. So since things are coming together for Jessica of course her ex Storm, would come back into her life. Now an interesting triangle starts up. Jessica is truly torn between the 2 and you feel for her since both men are amazing in there own way and who have much more in common than you know.I could even give it to Jess when she spent the night with one & then the very next night with the other. When the three of them are forced to face the true while one guy walks in on Jess and the other guy you finally get some good dialogue there. But when on chapter 13 Jess goes to her boss's place for a talk, she ends up putting on some kind of harness getup with leather straps. And if that weren't enough the second guy walks in in order for them to have a threesome. Totally didn't see that coming. But what made it worse was the second time the threesome takes place which was after Jessica accepts engagement ring from one of the guys. I truly believe that whole threesome was unnecessary. The story didn't need it. It had me hooked at least until that tasteless craziness took place. If they were having fun maybe. But the two men where in love with Jessica and were waiting for her to choose. While Jessica went from a broken-hearted girl to sleeping with a man whom she can't get enough of and who orders her to be a total submissive to his wants & needs. And the harder he hit her the more she likes it? Really since when? And then has a threesome with dominate and the one that got away. Not just once but twice and neither guy looks at her differently? Really? And when you've just gotten engaged? Really? Opal you were going to get a new fan with me til good o'l chapter 13. It truly went to the dark side with that one. So if you don't mind the threesome situation then You'll truly like maybe even love this book.
One of the many reason's I adore Kresely is that she doesn't really do cliffhangers…..until now. Waiting a year for poison princess series is bad enough and now this? 4 hours is no way near long enough once you dive into a world of money and the mob that is lead by your newly found father. And then start a hot and heavy relationship with the untouchable body guard?……..Well all I can say is Please Hurry With the Next Book!
I was jumping up and down when I found Jamie wrote about the wedding. However from time to time Abby titers from wanting to marry Travis for love to marring him just to keep him out of possibly going to jail. This was something that I hadn't thought of with in the 50 times I've listened to both Beautiful & Walking Disaster. That fact kind of ruined the romance side. Luckily Jamie pulls it out of the bag with the romance leading to our favorite couple to be adorably mushy and loving. I would have loved to hear about the details that lead Travis to work for the government. It was briefly spoken about in Walking D.
While I love Wanted book 1 because I love Eli and Gunner there was too much drama.Same went for book 2. Drama on top of craziness. Yet I just couldn't stay away from this book even though I wasn't sure if I would be in the mood for more craziness. So I was beyond pleasantly surprised at some of the cute & loving moments with the group of friends and how they stand by one another. Equally adorable moments with all of your favorite couples. I'm glad I took a chance on this one.
This is such an interesting supernatural story involving Lorelei and the angel of death looking after her and yes he falls in love with her but it's not a world wind romance. The title suggests their love for each other is the major issue along with saving the world. When it's all about saving the world and just a touch of romance. But the writing as always is funny and clever just what you would expect from D Jones. And Lorelei King is once again amazing. A true gem.
If you've read the book's summary than you know the whole story and can easily predict how it ends. But it was cute and worth reading for those who want a light romance with some steamy love scenes.
I was all set to listen to a triangle love story. Wonder who Stacy would end up with after a back an forth time. The beginning starts out with that feeling. Then they get to Houston and Stacy starts acting a bit slutty. Even going so far as getting a lap dance from a girl. One would think that would lead into an interesting moment of conflict with one of the 3 but nothing. Making that whole long scene unnecessary. Stacy spends more than half of the book with Jeremy & for the most part happy, flirty with Billy in a way that makes her seem like just a two timing tramp and then after Stacy jumps to the wrong conclusion about Jeremy….That's when she realizes she loves Billy. Not a well thought out story in my opinion.
Great love at first sight story. From the moment River & Dahlia meet you're cheering for them even though she's with her childhood sweetheart Ben. But when something happens to Ben she has a hard time dealing with everything until River comes back into Dahlia's live. What makes this book so amazing is that it's not just a love story but also a mystery. One that you don't see coming til the end of the book making it truly one of the best books I've ever read.
Great conclusion to a great 2 part book. It didn't drag on letting the pieces fall into place so that River & Dahlia get their happily ever after. Their love story was romantic without being overly mushy which is not always easily found. I'm hoping the author continues with maybe Ben's story and maybe the others. But if not, at least River & Dahlia are finally together & happy.
