J.R. Ward has done it again...this is an excellent book. It could have been better, but it was good. This series has always been exciting, edgy and had alot of beauty in it. You're alternately breathless and anxious and rooting for the characters...I've wanted to see these two resolved for a long time...however we don't get to enjoy it...not really...alot of agony through this book...and you don't get any insights, thoughts...etc. from alot of the other characters. I've always liked when JRW mixes it up...and I guess that she had that in mind introducing new characters. I like that...it's good...but we need more thoughts/insights from the old characters she mixes in...we didn't get much of that at all...or maybe I'm just spoiled. Regardless JRW remains a cut above the rest in writing in this series (and the the Fallen Angels) and I'lll continue to wait with bated breath for all of them....What's next JR?
I have loved all of these books and am so glad to have them finally in Audible. From the beginning the Colters capture your heart. It was the first time I consideed reading about a menage - and the only other I found that compares is Lauren Dane's Laid Bare. Colters have dug into my psyche and I love the continuity of the story and I love reading about this family, it never seems tacky or dirty to me - I think because the love and commitment is there from the beginning. For the Colters, this is not experimentation. Each is a distinct personality and their love for each other is without question - but primarily for one woman, Holly. These brothers, Adam, Ethan and Ryan are equally appealing with distinct personalities. If you like Romance and Love, don't miss Any of the Colters!
I mean it, Falling Into You was simple but Brilliant - Nell, Kyle and Colton, all compelling, with much heartbreak and much love - to me with an ending that couldn't be improved, except to give us more - and Jasinda did that with this book - and made Becca and Jason as compelling as Nell, Kyle and Colton - are they too good to be true ?in some ways yes..but I also thought Jasinda captured real emotions, real impacts and didn't use the old "misunderstandings" separating people for weeks and time on end - without getting to the bottom of what was going on....most of what I loved about these books was the hopefulness - and the fact that these characters didn't let tragedy, conventional notions and guilt stop them from the love we all deserve and allowed them to reach for (and achieve) something more.
Don't miss this incredible series, from beginning to end. It is often compared to Outlander, but that is hard to do. It stands alone as an excellent historical romance/life journey of Nathaniel and Elizabeth and their family I loved every minute of it!
I gave this book a chance because of Jane's Melody - that book was amazing and will always stick with me. This book sat in my library for 4 months. It is serious and not a romance but a story of a very tough, very real life and experience of a man. This is narrated by the author and it works - works well. I couldn't stop listening, but was afraid at the same time what was going to happen to Trevor next. I know a couple of alcoholics and for anyone who thinks they can "just stop" think again. There are many things at play and this book is a brilliant, insightful look at that. It is gut wrenching and emotional, but I don't think you'll forget this any time soon. Well worth it! I look forward to Ryan's next books. (Pretty please think about putting Jane's Melody on Audible!!!)
I love romance, believable romance...so many have fallen short. While Gavin is so perfect that it makes you question the possibility that such a man exists..you can't help but fall madly in love with him. Sometimes Emily upsets me with her assumptions, but then you can't help but feel you would react that way yourself... and it's easier to see bad situations from the outside, than when you're in it. I have read both books and they are majorly addictive! Be ready to lose sleep when you start these books! You can't stop listening! In fact, I started listening to them again!
You thought you knew what was coming, especially from the flavor of the reviews....but Gail puts a huge twist in here that had my heart breaking, literally! Gavin and Emily seem to have it all but their world crashes! I have to have a HEA and you gave it to me! Thank you Thank you Gail for your masterful storytelling! I like both Gavin and Emily's POV's, I love your style. I won't forget Collide and Pulse and they'll remain on my Favorite's list forever!
This book and it's sequel, are "Must Reads!!!!" Where is book two in audible? Light in the Shadows! The narrator is so, so...mostly on Maggie's Dad! This book is so worth reading and listening too...I can't believe anyone, anyone is saying don't listen! This book covers the very real and sensitive issues of mental and emotional illness - and love that begins and gives hope to living with this disease. I couldn't quit listening! Maggie and Clay are are lovely couple with painful issues, Clay's bipolar and borderline personality disorders. These are not weaknesses but real issues. Maggie shows the extremely mature and selfless character to keep loving him and to try to understand Clay and help him (not as a fixer) but to realize that Clay, despite his illness Deserves to be loved. I hated the cliffhanger ending - and went to find Lost in the Shadows on Audible (But it's not there!!!!!). I read Lost in the Shadows and believe me, both are very well worth reading and listening to! You won't regret it!
I thought this was going to be another trendy book...but this story gave me the smackdown...hard! I never saw it coming. I couldn't put it down. I haven't cried this hard in a long time. But the beauty of the story is also extremely uplifting. I urge you to listen to this book. I know I'm going to check out everything Jasinda has done. I thought this was just the way it should go...and I thought events were realistic. The narrators had it perfect, I am listening to it again. I look forward to the next book that is coming out soon....and I hope that Jasinda provides us some continuity in the next story... I like it when the characters are involved throughout the series...it makes it more believable and enjoyable. My only complaint (and it is a small one) is that the ending was rather abrupt and I hope that Jasinda will continue Nell and Colt's story in books to come. I WANT MORE!!!!
Narrated and written beautifully, you'll have to listen to it to appreciate it!
I have to say that this story is original, and I'm usually not for multiple partners, but these are people who are committed and amazingly make it work. Lauren Dane has amped it up with this series and I love, love all the Brown books. You can't go wrong with these books if you want Sweet, Smart, Scorching characters and stories....you can't put them down, and her continuity through the series is to be commended...I've listened to all of them twice! Waiting for Raven's book! I've listened to her Chase Series and it's fine, but this is writing and characterization on a whole different level. Thanks Lauren! Keep the Browns going!
I love this story and feeling like Brody gets his due....I love the way Lauren Dane has grown as an author, these are not just silly love stories. They have substance and are also sexy. Those who love the Chase brothers more I beg to differ....these books are much more than they are. I love the character and story continuation, I love the dialogue, you want to know these people. They are what family is all about. Thanks Lauren Dane for ramping it up to the next level! Can't wait for all the books (for the ereader and audible! - love them both!
