I guess I was hoping for more. I really liked this series and thought that this would be a bit more. It was so short and I feel like I wanted more and did not get it. You did get a bit of background into Chloe’s and Bennett's relationship. But is was nothing exciting or wow about it. It was like chapters that she took out of the first book and thought "hey maybe I can make some more money publishing them " and then stuck them in a little book. I've read other novella's that had great little stories to them. I wish she would have written a entire book with more twists and turns for them. I like all the character's she has written about and so I was hoping that she would have written about all of them to catch us all up. Still love the series and would highly recommend it but if you did not get this book you don't lose any of the story.
Thread nothing exciting or new with this book. The narration was mediocre at best. You could sleep through hours worth and still understand the story. Save your credit. I should have listened to the other reviews.
This was such a long time coming and I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. The storyline was weak at best. I felt like the other books had more plot than this one. Nothing exciting really happened. You don't really learn anything more about anyone in this book. The only redeeming factor is that I like hearing about the characters. I was hoping to have some more plot twists but alas did not. By the end I was tired of the sex scenes as they were over done and repetitive. Ava and Gideon's relationship went no where since the end of the last book. No wedding, no baby update, no move just blah. The only creative thing in this book was the change up of Narrators. I still don't understand why they don't have a male narrate all of his parts and the female hers where the dialogue is back and forth. You are paying two people so why not. All I can say is it was an easy listen and not horrible but if you are looking for action, surprising events or a conclusion you will not get it here.
This is a fantastic book. Set in a futuristic time. There are so many things going on that it's sometimes confusing but that is just part of the story line. This book keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing as to who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. Emma has no memory but hears voices in her head. There is a creepy doctor who you are not sure you can trust. Her husband Declan is hiding something and seems like a jerk but he loves her and treats her so well that you don't know if he is good or bad. Emma remembers another man but does not know who he is but is drawn to him. She is not sure if her visions and memories are real or not. This book has suspense, love, deception and drama. It is an amazing story.
This is a continuation of Camryn and Andrew's romance. They have made the decision to change their destiny and life just keeps getting in the way. The events that happy are totally believable. You can see how it is so easy to get moving in the wrong direction. Andrew sees that Camryn is going down a bad path and if he is to save their relationship and Cam he needs to get them back to where they were on the road. This part of the story encompasses their journey and how they refuse to take the path 99% of couples take. This is a great romance novel that is sweet and just an easy listen. There is no over the top sex scenes or huge dramatic events but is not boring either. It is written a bit like S.C. Stephen books. I do like that that author chose to have a dual narration. She does change the female narrator but it works.
I know that some have reviewed this book as slow. I agree to a point. It is a love story told through many years of their lives. However, it was a beautiful love story. Cam and Andrew have ups and downs just like any couple. Their story makes you laugh and cry. There is just something about the two of them that keep you listening. You want to find out what will happen next. Cam is young and confused but knows that her current life is not what she wants. She does not know what she wants but then meets Andrew. He is running away from his troubles and feels an immediate connection to Cam. Together the set off to change their destiny. The thing I like about this book is that it is not so over the top with events that happen to Cam and Andrew, that you can still imagine yourself in their place. This is a romance story that will not disappoint. It reminds me a bit of S.C. Stephens books.
One thought that is not conflicting in my mind is that the narrator is absolutely horrible. She is all breathy and high pitched. She totally killed this book. So that is why I am on the fence. I think there was a lot of potential for this book but am not sure if I was just too critical due to the narrator or my expectations. I have never ready Lindsay Sands before but heard lots of positive talk about her books so thought I would give it a go. I think it was a really unique idea to have a fainting vampire. I do think that the humour in the story was lost in translation by the narrator. I also agree with other reviewers that the love at first site was a bit too fast and over the top. It is hard to fully buy in. However, I think that there is room for positive improvement so am willing to give the next book a try before I cast judgement on the series. Overall it was just ok for me. I have certainly read better.
There was very little depth to this story. The falling in love in two days was a bit hard to believe. There are no twists or turns to this book. It is plain old boring! Yes there are sex scenes that get steamy but after the first few you can just tune them out. The characters of Natalie and Luke are just dull. The narration is a bit to young and mousy for my taste. I was expecting more and must say I am disappointed. Sometimes it is good to listen to a book that is just a lighthearted romance but usually the characters are exciting or you just get sucked into the story. There is nothing like that in this book. I am trying to figure out how a series could possibly be made from this book. Save your credit and try something else.
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.
