I loved this. The story wasn't the usual romance I listen to and enjoy, it was more like 007's love life, if he totally fell for one of the innocent women standing at the craps tables with him. The story was well crafted, intriguing and capturing. I stayed up 'til the wee hours and found myself hoping for breaks at work to continue listening to find out what would happen next. Sebastian is not your typical hero, but he is oh so hot.
This book was a little outside my norm but was recommended to me by friends.
Hounded, book 1 in the series, was funny, engaging, and well written. I liked the characters a lot. Everyone had enough depth and personality to leave me wanting to get to know them better in future books.
I will definitely listen to the next book in the series. The narrator, Luke Daniels has a great voice to listen to, kept a great rhythm, gave each character enough distinction I could easily follow, and delivered the lines with timing that kept me laughing.
This purchase was a leap for me. The audio version was entertaining and the sound effects were kind of cheesy but I dug it.
The male voices, by Mr. James, were good and bad. He clearly wanted everyone to have there own voice but a couple sounded cartoonish. Overall I liked the characters both narrators brought to life and I liked that most of the reactions and behaviors read as true.
The story itself had more complexity than I'd have thought and a new world with people and politics were brought to life for me.
Overall, totally worth it and I will purchase the next in the series.
I enjoyed this book and recommend it as a follow up to The Rosie Project.
I had a little harder time getting into the story of Don and Rosie than I did in the first book but I still ended up laughing and trying not to cry just as before.
Rosie wasn't as likable to me through most of the story, she wasn't as tolerant of Don's quirks, but this book is really more about Don's journey into fatherhood.
Read it, better yet, listen to it, you'll like it.
I stumbled across this series and gave it a shot. I am so glad I did. The story is action, mystery and relationship based, instead of just romance. It reminds me more of a Patricia Briggs than a Lynsay Sands. I like that each story wraps up but there is definitely a continuing story line.
I like the slow build of the possible romance between Ethan and Merit but that in the mean time she is working thru the evolution of her other relationships with friends, family, her new self, and others.
The narrator is great. I read the reviews before purchasing and they gave me pause but I think Cynthia does a fantastic job bringing a voice to each of the characters. I was never confused and I felt like the emotions were right on.
Funny, sassy, engaging
Gigi is a character I liked in the first of the series and I'm glad to get to get a little more of her story as an adult. I also really enjoyed touching base with the rest of the crew from Half-Moon Hollow.
The books in this series are exactly what you'd want them to be, smartly written, funny and engaging. All of the characters are a kick and Amanda Ronconi brings them to life in a way that's fun to listen to. These are light, feel good and so much fun!
The characters were likable, had driven purpose to do what they thought was right, and were intelligent. I enjoyed the banter they shared, and for as sex driven as this story was, definitely erotic, it took place in a surprisingly complex world. I do believe I will listen to the next one in the reading order, as soon as my cheeks quit burning.
This story just left me feeling cold. The characters and story were well written but I was looking for something a little more "feel good" and this wasn't it.
A romance based on cheating is a hard sell anyway and it's hard to stand up for the protagonist when she isn't taking responsibility for her actions and is constantly rationalizing them by pointing out what a jerk her friend is.
The friend is selfish, so it was disgruntling to find myself feeling bad for her. The boyfriend was weak and I couldn't get on board for someone so spineless, and Rachel, the lead, just seemed to be trying to show how much more she deserved the guy.
This stuff happens in real life. The story is a much more realistic version than what I wanted it to be but, in real life, I avoid these people.
