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.
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.
