Yes. It's a good story. I enjoyed the story of lust for an older woman. Being 40 myself, there's always hope... It's nice to hear a story told with hope for love with a hot, young man.
She read extremely fast and with no change in her voice tone to differentiate between the different characters. I could not tell, most of the time, if it was a thought or someone talking. Terrible, terrible reader!!!
No. As it was catchy, there were enough places to pause and come back to later.
To the reader, SLOW DOWN and ENJOY the characters!
Yes! If I were "reading" it, I probably would have given up after the first few chapters. But having these phenomenal narrators allowed me to continue "listening." And good thing I did. I liked him, then I hated him. I liked her, felt sorry for her, then hated her. Fantastic play on your emotions.
Unfortunately, it was her. I kept finding myself wanting to hear what she was thinking, what she was doing, how she was going to find her way out of sticky situations.
They did a fabulous job narrating! And I was able to distinguish between each character, due to their fabulous inflections.
The moment she came back. His expression and the whispering in her ear. He wanted her to know he knew. Awesome!
It does start off kind of slow; but stay with it. It gets better and better. The ending did leave me wanting more.
Nothing I expected. It felt dirty and wrong!
First of all, it was very unrealistic. Secondly, I loved 50 shades and Sylvia Day's novels, and I love a good naughty porn story; however, this was not. I kept hoping she would find a way out of the extremely horrifying event that was her life. Disappointed and disturbed by the whole thing. I couldn't even listen to it that intently. Instead of feeling sensual, it just felt so wrong. And there was no break from it. It was constant abuse. Terrible, terrible, just terrible. I felt awful for the main character. I would not recommend this book.
The emotions I felt--as a reader--following both characters roller coaster of a relationship. You really pull for this couple, despite everything they've gone through.
There were many, but one memorable moment was when Gideon's jealousy over Ava's ex caused him to force the answer out of her. As deep and dark as it was, he had a point to make, and knew only one way to get it out of her; and by-God he did. I think it was the climax of their relationship. The realization of what kind of hold they had on each other.
Just in Bared to You
ABSOLUTELY! I found myself attached to my computer, waiting to hear the reasoning behind Gideon's darkness. I must admit, I was very enticed by the build-up and foreshadowing, only to be disappointed with the ten-minute reasoning, which ended up lacking emotion and feeling.
I felt the first book built up Gideon's past to the point that the reader NEEDED to know why. I thought the second book was going to explain his past in full detail and show how the two of them would get through it. That never happened.
It felt as though the author rushed through the ending, throwing in the suspicious murder, etc. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed in the end, and want a re-write! Or, a third novel delving deeper... I fell in love with Gideon and Ava and WANT MORE! The foreshadowing of many subjects never came to fruition; i.e., them getting married, her ex coming after her, the story behind his brother's weird behavior at the garden party, her roommate (Cary's) future...
Emotional, touching, hopeful
One of the most memorable moments for me was the night, shortly after they were married, when Adrian had Violet take the lead in their lovemaking. Such a romantic and feeling husband is what all us wives hope for in our husband.
No I have not, but she is FABULOUS! You can really tell the characters apart. You forget it is one person doing the voices because her inflections and tones are spot-on. I love listening to Bianca act/speak/tell the story.
The most touching moment for me was when Adrian found the letter in the fireplace. From that moment until he found Violet again--at their honeymoon location--had me near tears with the betrayal and inner struggle Adrian was feeling. It was written so suspensefully, I couldn't stop listening.
I can't wait to read Tracy's other three novels! The end of this one had me wanting to hear more about Violet's friend, Adrian's brother, and of course the infamous Jeannette!
Yes, it is written very well and has you pulling for this couple. The emotions and feelings one feels when reading this book is wonderful.
My favorite moment is how well written the intimate moment between Eva and Gideon--when they are struggling with their own inner torment, trying to explain to each other how much they mean to each other--at the Garden Party at Gideon's family's home. The chance that they might get caught is such a turn-on.
There's more to Gideon than the story allows. By reading this story, you know that Gideon had some sort of troubled past. The foreshadowing is there, but leaves you wanting more answers by the end.
I do believe the voice/actress made it a little difficult to separate the characters' voices. Sometimes, I wasn't sure if it was Eva or Cary talking, etc.
There were a few moments that really moved me. One that stands out is when Gideon finally tells Eva he loves her, but it's more than that. The way it is explained is touching and heartfelt. It's so lovely that Eva felt that too.
More,....it would be great if the author made a second book from Gideon's perspective, delving into his past and how the two of them can get past it, together. It's such a great story, but I want more!!!
