No, it does not have a strong plot. Heroin's problem just dragged on and on in the story. Supporting characters' story were much better.
I like Aly's relationship with Jared when they were growing up. How she always loves him, even when she was young.
The concept of this story is not something new but it was beautifully written. This story is about second chance. I could feel Jared's guilt and heartache. I was so sad for his lost but also how he blamed himself. I could feel the chemistry and love between Jared and Aly. I thought the relationship they had growing up was very special. Made me wish that I have someone like Jared growing up; someone who always be there for me and stood up for me.
I look forward to the next book. I hope that Jared learns to let go of the past and guilt.
I listened to Sebastian's works before. I thought he was great reading this book. He has a sexy voice.
This book is original, funny and sexy. It has been awhile I read a book that I enjoyed thoroughly. It cracked me up. Drew is a player who met his match, Kate. Kate is strong and independent. She does not let Drew pushes her around. She knows what she wants and she goes for it. I love that Kate made Drew works for the relationship. If you like Wallbanger, you'll love this book.
Lina and Evan
What's a great start of a new series. I enjoyed this book. I love a strong female lead and an awesome male lead to drool over. This book introduced us to The Knights - 3 powerful and enigmatic men, Evan, Tyler and Cole. This is about Evan and Lina. Two tortured souls that found each other. Lina loved Evan from the moment she saw him. Evan felt the same but he promised her uncle,John that he would not pursuit Lina. These two finally got together after John died. I love their story and how their love prevail.
This book has twists, sweet, unpredictable and fun to read. Most of all, it's hot, streamy and sexy. I can't wait read about Tyler and Cole.
I give this book a 3 star. I am disappointed with this book. Ms. Banks did not delivered this book. I have been waiting for Donovan's story and am disappointed. I thought Van and Eve fell in love too quickly. Their story is predictable. One thing that bothered me is that Cam and Travis are Eve's half siblings; as Van and Eve's relationship develops, Cam and Travis call Van 'dad' and his parents 'grandparents'. I understand why at the end of this book but I still think it's weird.
i enjoyed the reoccurrence of previous books' characters, KGI and the Kelly's clan.
Yes, b/c it was brilliantly written. I love the banter b/t Cam and Andrew.
Easy by Tammara Webber. The heroine struggles to find herself.
This is the first time I listen to this author. WOW, what's an incredible and original book. I love how Cam and Andrew met and fell in love. I thought the concept of the story was original and the journey they took was interesting. I wish I can be that carefree and did what they did. This book was well written with so much mix emotions. I laughed, cried, and exhilarated while reading this book. This book is well worth a credit I spent.
The male narrator. He did not sounds 'manly' enough for Nash or Cash.
Yes, the male narrator
This book is not as good as the first 2 books in the series. While it gave good conclusion to the whole series, the story of Nash and Marissa was not hot or steamy. In my opinion, this book fell short. It did explained a lot about Nash/Cash and their father's story.
I am glad that I did not listen bad reviews of this book. In this last installment of the series, Emma grew in to her own person. She learned to forgive herself and live/look forward to the future and not in the past. I love Evan. He has always been in love with Emma. I am glad that they worked things out. I like the fact that when I saw each other again, they took things slow and tried to work on what was wrong with their relationship instead of just dive in and get back to where they were. I agreed with other reviews that Emma's friends babied her too much. There's so much of eggshell one can walked on. All in all, this book gave me closure to this series.
WOW, what's a follow up for the Breathing series. It's so intense, heartache, turmoil, etc. I am amazed that Emma could take so much. This book explained some of the events toward the end of Reason to Breathe. Emma got away from her abusing aunt to head straight in to another abusing relationship with her mom, Rachel. Although, Rachel may not physically abused Emma, she did it mentally. Emma endured the abuse b/c she loved her mom. Again, she hid the abuse everyone including both Evan and Sara this time. I know that Emma is young and is still learning about life but for a smart girl, you would think that she learned from what happened with her aunt. I think this is where Barely Breathing drove me crazy.
Emma and Evan's relationship struggled in this book b/c Emma constantly pushing Evan away. She sought out comfort with Jonathan who was Rachel's boyfriend. This is where I felt it was a little twisted but maybe a little bit realistic? Granted Jonathan may be closer to Emma's age, he was dating her mom. He fell for Emma b/c he felt the connection because both were abused. Emma strung both Evan and Jonathan along. From someone who claimed that she loves Evan, she lied to her teeth to him. This is very hard for me to take. She constantly reached out to Jonathan. I felt that Emma turned in to a not very nice person. She took her guilt out of Jonathan. She was mean to him and was verbally abusive. It looks like the vicious cycle repeating itself. My heart broke for Evan when Emma left. Maybe it was the best decision she made by being honest.
This book was well written, full of turmoil and heartache. I look forward to Out of Breath for the conclusion of this series.
A great happy ending for Tru and Jack. I am surprise how immature Tru acted in the book. I found her unlikable and annoying at times. Her lack of trust and insecurity of Jack was distracting b/c I found myself getting very angry and annoy. Jack was great. He was the mature, loving, and responsible one in this book. I love the supporting characters and the band members were awesome. If you read The Mighty Storm, this sequel is a must read.
This book made me cried when I was reading about the abuse. It's sad to see how cruel Emma's aunt was.
This is a tear jerky and heartrending book. I couldn't believe how cruel one can be to another human being. Emma lost her father and was forced to live with her uncle and aunt b/c her mother was an alcoholic and was not able to take care of her. While she lived with her uncle, aunt and 2 little cousins, she was physically, mentally and emotionally abused by her aunt. Her uncle chose to turn a blind eye about the abused. Emma endured the abuse b/c she did not want her cousins to lose their mom. It showed that she was selfless. But by doing this, she enabled her aunt to keep doing it to her. As the book go on, I wondered how much more can Emma take. She was so strong. She did not let the abuse to get her down about life. Don't get me wrong, she felt down about life at times but she continued to get back up. In her own way to fight back, she did not let her uncle and aunt ruin her future. She did well in school and involved in many school sports and activities. I thought this was really smart of her. She realized that this was her way out.
Then came Evans. Evans was Emma's sunlight in her dark world. He slowly weed his way in to Emma's life whether she liked it or not. He gave her the reason to hope and be happy. Evans did not let Emma's securities or distrust b/c of her situation to deter him from falling in love with her. Because of her distrust and securities, Emma and Evans struggled in their relationship.
Everyone should have a Sara in her life. Sara is Emma bff. She would do anything for Emma including hiding the abuse. Sara is a spit fire who does not afraid to deal with things head on. She's the sounding board and confidant to Emma. Emma is lucky to have a friend like Sara.
This is a well written story and very sad. I hope Emma's journey will turn out well for her. I look forward to start the 2nd book.
