I am only half way through this book and I don't want it to end! Amazing series, way better than her vampire series.
The synopsis of this book is deceiving. Here's what it's really about: sexual abuse, mental abuse, really poor personal choices, poor communication skill. Pretty much being the biggest doormat EVER! I hated the first 5 chapters, but I continued to listen, waiting for the story line promised. Huge disappointment! And then you are gonna just end the book hoping I'll buy the next one. Keep hoping, I can't believe this rubbish was published. White Trash Beautiful was better than this book and that one was seriously depressing. Don't waste you time or money on this one.
save your hard earned credits, stay away!! this book is nothing like the Sinner's series. I had high hopes that crashed so hard. in the Sinner's series, the guys start out as douchey manwhores, then one by one they fall in love and calm down. Soul Regret start as douchey manwhores and stay that way. only one of them follows the sinners storyline, the rest of the book is dirty sex scenes and them being jerks in general. seriously dissapointing.
i would say that this book was a time killer. It was not a binge read. I had to force myself to keep going. If you have lots of time, on an airplane or in traffic, then it's ok, still not great.
I was really excited for this book, it was not what i expected. i kept an open mind, but it was just so meh. There wasn't enough information given early in the book to draw me in. You get little bread crumbs all the way up to the second half and they aren't intriguing crumbs. narrators switch every other chapter, it doesn't give the reader time to make a connection to either character. i had to force myself to finish the book and i still don't know what happened. I wouldn't say this book was good or bad, just middle of the road.
I really enjoyed this book. It was so detailed that i thought the ending was going to reveal the author as the main character. As the story unravels, you see the plot twists coming. thankfully, the main character isn't oblivious and makes all the assumptions I did as i was reading. I will say that the ending is abrupt and leaves me wanting more, but content with the stopping point.
This story had so much potential. I was really drawn to the story line, but after the first few chapters, I knew this book was not for me. For one, I can't get in the mind set of the alcohol/drug abuse family. I also, can not understand these guilt ridden children, who have taken responsibility for their abusive parents. This was quite possibly the biggest train wreck of a book that I have ever listened to. The end is not all prince on a white horse, but it made up for the first 7 hours.
It was so unbelievably bad, I was left wishing I'd read the original. The point of retelling a well known story is to make it more interesting. This author failed. I found this version so boring, that I had force myself to finish the book. It was bad, a total waste of a credit.
The narrator was boring. He had little to no inflection and his voice was SO wrong for the character Noel. I felt slightly dirty listening to him reading sex scenes. I got half way through the audiobook and realized I had no idea what was going on. I had tuned him out for over an hour. I was very disappointed that he was reading books 2 and 3.
Let me introduce you to a thesaurus, see its a book the has many options for expressing words. Synonyms for "giggle" would be titter, laugh, chuckle...
Other than my upset that the author wrote about a 30 year old woman who can only express joy by giggling. This was a good story.
I have to say that this was a great book, but for some reason I thought it was the end of the series. I listened for the sweet wrap up to all the lose ends, but no, cliff hanger. More books to come later? when!?! How many more O minerals are there? This Series is interesting and could make a great movie some day. I do suggest it as a credit worthy read.
I really enjoyed this story. The characters are well developed and introduced slowly. I have noticed a theme with this author's book, all of her main characters come from a tragic accident that happens in the teen years. This gets obnoxious while reading, I can only listen to "poor pitiful me" for so long. I am torn on purchasing the next book in the series.
