You get a lot of fill in information for questions developed in the first book but you don't get any real progression in the plot. Now that we know where they are going from here, I'm really interested in the conclusion. The narrator did a great job and the characters are endearing so the lack of progression doesn't detract from the book too much. It's simply the bridge between the first book and the conclusion and answers enough questions to keep you content.
This is not a series that you would enjoy piece-wise but is definitely a good continuation of the overall story.
While a narrator change makes sense due to the shift to a male perspective, it was annoying. I had grown to like the voices used in the past three books (including the male ones performed by the female narrator). Also, the story really doesn't compare to the first three. You get the happy ending that was missing but I just couldn't get into the story that much.
It seemed to progress incredibly slowly and I just couldn't get past the dated 80's feel.
The story really is fascinating. I put off reading this book despite recommendations because it looked and sounded a little cheesy. When I finally started reading it, I was completely sucked into the story. I liked it so much, I even bought the audiobook when it was on sale. I didn't like the performance of any of the male voices but I had no issues with the main character's voice so it wasn't too bad.
Honestly, I just loved this book. It wasn't fanciful drivel, there were high stakes, and there was genuine emotion and not the whole "We kissed once and now I'm going to marry him!" stuff that seems to be so prevalent in this genre. The only thing I felt was unbelievable was how long it took her to come clean. I'm definitely a new fan of the series.
Kiera. WTH! I could follow along with the story up through the first "indiscretion". I even could side with her at that point but after that, I just wanted to slap her and turn off the book. I struggled through more and more of the book and the frustration just kept dragging on. Sure there was passion in the book but it wasn't enough to compensate for the rest of the story.
None. Denny was oblivious in the beginning (but "perfect" the remaining time), Kellan was vindictive and, honestly, the one who let the whole "cuddling" thing start in the first place, and I've already voiced my issues with Kiera.
It didn't come off as young and fun so it didn't vibe well with the words in the story. The accent was a little annoying but Detroit has an accent so it could be dead on and I would probably still find it annoying. You could hear the "smile" in her voice pretty much throughout but since her voice felt incongruous with the story, it kind of felt like she was mentally unstable and just found every thought hilarious. I seriously struggled to get through the first 45 minutes without giving up on the audiobook.
I don't think she was a bad narrator, but she was not able to carry this story.
It was full of action and conspiracy but I found myself really frustrated with the whiny voice used for Janet Carter. It was driving me crazy! I also have to admit I was a little unhappy with that character as a whole. I was ok with naive but it seemed she was beyond that. She was dangerously stupid which didn't seem fair.
It was an emotional story that was emotionally narrated. The way it was broken up into
It really was a great book and I really enjoyed the main character. I definitely quickly became invested in the book but that
