I can't say I loved this book for a few reasons. It ended and I felt there were still some unanswered questions. It ended quickly and I was looking for a epilogue to give us a glimpse into the future. Overall the book was good but I can't put my finger on why it was not great. Maybe I am just over critical but since starting this series I have read other series and feel that this one is just lacking a bit. The narrators were ok. I agree with others that the Shane East has a great male sexy voice but his female voice is a bit irritating. Although I like Grace Grant I find she reads a bit fast and so whenever I start her books I need to get accustomed to her speed then I don’t notice as much. She does a good job of acting the story and not just reading it but still there is something. Sometimes she sounds like she has too much saliva when she talks. Ok maybe I am really being picky but that is what I thinking deep down. Would I recommend this book? Yes. It is enjoyable and the three books make for an enjoyable listen. I would read something else by this author in the future.
I love Sylvia Day but this book just does not measure up in my opinion. It is a bit boring and seems choppy. The characters Jack and Gia have a lot of chemistry between them but I did not get how he just walks back into her life and then they start having sex again. Gia seems to have a good head on her shoulders and is tough. You would think she would not forgive so easily. I felt like the story was a bit choppy and did not always flow well. I did not really get Gia's job and Chad's part seemed off in the story line. Overall I was not impressed. I noticed that others did not like the narrator. I don't think she did a bad job, I think it was the Jersey accent that started to wear on my nerves after a while but not due to the narrator herself. I think just listening to the accent played by anyone would be annoying after a while. In the end I don't think this was the best of Sylvia Day.
I got this book based on reviews and was not disappointed. It had me laughing and kept my interest all the way through. Although the premise of the book is unrealistic, you can't help but want it to work. Mia and Ansel are a great couple. I love the fact that she is embarrassed at all the right moments. The story line has enough going on that you do not need over the top drama constantly. I hope that the Christina Lauren brings back all the characters throughout the stories so we see what is happening to them. Overall a very enjoyable easy read.
I am not one to not finish listening to a book but this one is just killing me. The narrator is so boring that I realize I have tuned out while listening. I can't seem to get beyond chapter 3 as it has not caught my interest. Honestly, it is like listening to the narrator read a Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat book. (probably dating myself). So far the only good thing is that I got this book in a BOGO deal. I am not feeling the connection between the two main characters and the story seems to jump around and does not flow well. Maybe I will try again later.
I am so glad that she finished with each character and got them all married off, except for Trey Mills and his partners. I was confused at the beginning because I felt like the first half of the book really was a repeat of the first book. It did not really have any new scenes in it. I did like how all the characters were in this book and that you got the happily ever after you wanted. However, out of all of her books this was my least favourite. I guess I was expecting more excitement. In the end I still rate this book high for the simple fact that I love these characters and anytime I can have more of them is a good time for me.
This book takes your further into the story of Lilly and JS. The book has mystery and suspense. It will take you to the reaches of your comfort level as it deals with kidnapping and to some extent rape. This is not usually the content I enjoy but for some reason I cannot put this book down. The author does an amazing job of drawing you in and although the subject matter is not comfortable she makes you hang on every word. I think it is really well written and I cannot wait to see where she takes these characters. Again my only complaint would be that the book is so short and I don't want to waist a credit on it so I buy them.
This book is so dark and has lots of twists and turns. You listen to the book and your emotions go for a roller coaster ride. I still cannot pin down Jeremy Stonehart. He is evil, yet caring. It amazes me how the author captures the turmoil in this character so well. You hang on every word and I still don't know if I want to kill him or feel empathy for him. Lilly is starting to loose it a bit in this book. Too much over thinking things is making her crazy. She cannot understand JS either. She thinks she is getting him and then he shocks her. It is not always a good shock. Little by little more of the reason for her abductions is coming to light. Anne, the house keeper is also a mystery to be solved. What is her connection to all of this? I still cannot wait for the next book. Please Scarlett Edwards, but this in one long extremely captivating book.
I still cannot decide if I want to love or hate these books. The basis of the story sets off all your alarm buttons as you should be horrified by kidnapping and torture. Yet the author draws you in and makes it all seem OK in a dysfunctional way. Jeremy Stonehart is cruel, unpredictable and you cannot seem to get a firm hold on if he is the bad guy or the good guy. He does horrible things and then he is sweet and kind and it is hard to wrap your head around him. But that is the part I like best as you cannot predict what will happen next. Lilly is just scared and confused but still maintains her strong will. You have to admire her strength and ability to keep going. The part I hate the most is that this is broken down into 2 hr books and then you wait. I don't know why authors do this I wish it was all one novel or cheaper. I won't use a credit on this type of short book but I was willing to buy it.
Tristan and Danika have suffered for so long they don’t know which way is up. I feel like this was a long time coming and wish that their suffering had turned around earlier in the book but then I guess it would be a different story. I am totally hooked on anything R.K. Lilley writes. She has a way to taking tortured souls and finding their inner strength and proving that there is someone out there for everyone. I liked that Danika became more than a babysitter and really used her brains. This gave her a little more of an edge in this book and not so much of a follower. Tristan finally gets over himself and learns that he needs to grow up. It took him long enough to figure this out. This book ends their journey together and leaves you feeling satisfied with no missing pieces.
Jimmy and Lena’s characters are so funny. I love books where the dialogue is sarcastic, funny and sexy all at the same time. This series has been a delightful surprise and I cannot wait for more. Jimmy is all kinds of messed up and Lena is a no nonsense women. She doesn't put up with his crap and gives it right back to him. I laughed out loud at some of their antic between the two of them. You still get a bunch of Mal Erickson in this book and he is so over the top that you cannot help but laugh. Although the story is not complicated and you can see the ending coming, it just makes you want to keep listening. I found myself staying up at night just to hear more of their banter. This is a love story with some sass. I highly recommend this series. It is similar to Olivia Cunnings books and I love those too. Worth the credit.
I should know better than to start a series that is only 2 hours in length. Just when it is getting good you have “To Be Continued” stuck in your face. This book’s content is dark and suspenseful. You don’t know if you love it or hate it. In the end you love it but I wish there was more. J.S. is just a bit sick yet the author writes this story in a way that you cannot hate him. You are intrigues by him and why he kidnapped Lilly. She is just a confused victim in all of this and you think Stockholm syndrome. In the end this book keeps you wanting more. I don’t understand why authors write these little stories unless it is for a money grab. You end up paying more than usual for the entire story and this is why I don’t usually buy in. However, this one intrigued me enough to break my own advice. I am not disappointed. I am hooked and will need to continue on.
