I just could not finish this book. I found the narrator's voice intensely annoying and though it seemed as if the story was going to eventually get interesting, I kept avoiding going any further and never finished.
The title would never give away the fact that this novel surrounds the Titanic disaster, and the effect it has on numerous people, including the protagonist. There is a bit of romance thrown in, and the heroine has to choose between two suitors... one with money and one without, and she makes the right choice in the end. A good story but not great. It was not memorable particularly, but was an enjoyable read. Can't say I'd be running to recommend it though.
This installment in the trilogy brings mystery, whodunnit factors, and a lot of hot sex.
I didn't think I could find a series as "stimulating" as the Crossfire series but wow... this outdid it in my opinion. The ending is satisfying though there is some heartbreak thrown in for good measure. Not spoiling it.
This book fleshed out the relationship between Damien and Nikky, and there was a lot of suspense intertwined with the sex. As in the Crossfire series, Nikky doubts herself a lot during the books, and struggles with her urge to return to cutting herself, a practice she began after having grown up with an overly controlling and emotionally abusive mother. This is disturbing, but kept in check through the book. As Nikky becomes more sure of Damien's love for her, she is able to overcome this, except during the most stressful situations. Damien is able to understand her need for pain and provides her with outlets for it that are much healthier. I really like this couple.
Jeez... I thought the Crossfire series was hot. This certainly gave them a run for the money.
The combination of the hot dialogue, fabulous narration by Sofia Willingham and numerous sexual fantasies and slightly kinky sex made for a very hot but enjoyable book. Other characters were also developed, and I was left wanting to listen to the other two books. Which I did. Wow.
This series was addictive. Really ramped up the juices! Eva and Gideon work out the kinks in their relationship as this second instalment in the Crossfire series continues. Eva and Gideon really are very well suited to one another...Eva just seems to miss that point on numerous occasions, letting her insecurities and fear of abandonment from her childhood influence her faith in Gideon's love and devotion to her. A great series.
This book is a perfect segway into a fourth Crossfire novel. Eva and Gideon appear to be happy, finally. But who knows? Things keep getting in the way of their happiness, and both of them have skeletons in their closets that rear their ugly heads on a regular basis. Anxious to see what happens in Captivated by you.
Well, this was my first foray into erotic fiction. It certainly was hot. I felt Ms. Redfield really nailed the voices of both Eva and Gideon which is not an easy task. This book set the scene for the remainder of the trilogy which followed this pair through numerous ups and downs, and showcased the damage that can be done to a soul from sexual abuse. Both the characters were developed in that light and this was interesting to see. Overall, very enjoyable.
Normally, I love JoJo Moyes' books and I have read several. This one just could not grab me. I kept reading the same passages over again, as my attention seemed to easily wander during listening. That is not typical of most of Ms. Moyes' books. In the end, I did not finish the book. Perhaps I shortchanged myself. I guess I will never know.
I found this book riveting. Ms. Lindhout did an excellent job of narrating her own work.
As a Canadian, I was able to relate to the geography referenced in the earlier part of the book. Her story was terrifying. I was baffled at why she would put herself in harm's way deliberately by going to such dangerous places, but I guess her wanderlust was too powerful to ignore. Her strength and determination while in captivity was awe inspiring. What a fabulous book.
I don't know why, but I kept listening over and over to various passages as my attention kept wandering. The subject matter was disturbing, but that aside, I felt I just couldn't stay glued to this book. Too bad.. it sounded great from the description.
