Definitely..it took a while to get used to the new narrator, but I got so absorbed in the story that he faded into the background.
PJ, definitely. She was an aboslute female in this book..strong, fragile, girly, manly..all wrapped into one. She brought what happened to her to the forefront, avoided it, dealt with it her way and on her terms. She was all over the map and it was wonderful.
Now, Cole would be next. He was so sensitive and manly all at the same time. He never stepped into her world without acknowldeging her for who and what she was..their courtship (what little there was) and handling of the event were the best parts of the book.
PJ, definitely. He didn't try too hard to be female and since this was PJ we're talking about, it seemed to fit.
The entire rape scene from beginning to when she was in the hospital was so emotional for me. There were times when I had to stop because my emotions were too wired. It was upsetting, disturbing, and troubling all at the same time. I didn't think I'd be able to finish it, but I had to step away for a minute and then come back. It was such an integral part of the story and PJ and cole's relationship that I could not stop continuing to read the book.
I am torn between this one and the Rio story as my favorite. I listened to it twice because I could not pull away from PJ and Cole. While the change in narrator was startling, he fell into the background and the story took over.
Unfortunately, I only have the audio version so I cannot give a reply to this question.
There are so many..I loved the time the spent talking when she started his tattoo, but I equally loved that she called him when she went off to find her mother and he dropped everything to go to her. While these two (2) may seem from different worlds, they are so right for each other.
I feel she brought Raven to life. I visualized her voice sounding just as Ms, Rivers delivered, sultry, sexy, but able to show the vulnerability.
I wouldn't say an extreme reaction, but I think I want a tattoo now. Reading this series is was definitely an eye opener, but Raven's story clinched it for me.
I loved how this story came together. I loved that we finally revealed Raven's past to explain some of her personality and past behavior. This was definitely worth the wait. I'm going to miss the Brown's and their friends.
I waited for months to read Swanny's story..I loved how open and honest Eden was about her attraction to Swanny. It seemed genuine and I was invested in them really exploring this attraction. Unfortunately, while I felt he attraction between the two (2) characters, I felt that the story moved too fast and didn't establish a true "I love you, happily ever after feel" that we got in the other Kelly books.
The story started off with a potential mystery that we could follow..finding out the threat to Eden. Unfortunately, this was not the basis if the book, so this "action" was solved relatively quickly which was a little disappointing.
I enjoyed the narrator and have gotten used to his voice and mannerisms.
I will always be a Maya Banks/ KGI fan, but I was not that thrilled with this particular story. I would have loved to have more "conflict or action" that would bring the characters together and allow their relationship to grow. While we know that Swanny is an "adoptee" of the Kelly family, it would have been nice to know more about Swanny's background, introducing Eden to the Kelly clan, especially Mrs. Kelly, the recovery of Eden after the sttack. It would have been nice to spend a little more time developing their relationship, revealing the villain, and watching it all come together.
The story of Hope and Ryder was beautiful..Watching them overcome their original "assumptions" about each other and their views on entering a relationship was classic. Hope proved to be exactly what Ryder needed even when he didn't know or understand exactly what he needed. I also loved how the narrator really got in to the voicing each character differently..tone, style..it was really engaging.
Ryder was my favorite. he was rough, raspy, but soft and engaging all at the same time. You couldn't help, but love him.
His voice and tone. I kept getting swept up in the story just by his voice and narration.
I loved when ryder awaoke from the dream he had about Billy. How it affected him ad how it connected him to Hope. You could see him falling for her, but during those moments, you saw him actually..fall.
I loved this trilogy of books. I enjoyed it so much that I read them all twice back to back. I loved Mr. Andrews. I will be sure to check out some books that he narrates just because of him.
