So much of what Joss went thru in life, I remember from my losses and shutting down. So many tears I cried knowing that I know exactly what the Author was portraying. Scary, that she the (Author) knew how she felt inside and how to lock it away. But the fact they she (Jocelyn) had someone so strong (Braden) makes this a great story. So glad I have it now in my library. And even sadder I waited so long to listen to it. Great book.
I think because of her courage, and what she endured it would be Jocelyn. Excellent
OH listening to this was better for me. Reading this I may of put it down never to return to il. Listening to it, I let it flow thru me and was able to process so much. I could lay back and let the tears fall as she fell apart and knew what she was feeling. Listening to books make is so much easier to handle than reading when it's a touch pill to swallow. Sometimes I just need to let it wash over me and let either the tears and laughter take over. And Paula Costello is amazing with her Scotland portrayals of these people in her life, no doubt I could here it so much in her Scottish heritage in her English portrayal as well. She was most excellent. Well done And can I say there is nothing sexier than a deep Males Scotland accent, They make four letter words sound exotic, I can't explain it, but they just make them sound sexy and not forbidden as others do. Some Brits do as well at portraying them as well.
She lost at young age, only to learn to love again so far away from what was familiar to her.
I kept this book on hold until after my mother birthday the 9th of September. Knowing what I read and had heard there were going to be parts that would be so familiar to me as a reader. So I withheld this one. Purposely, I had to know it was going to be hard. And since I just lost my own loved ones, I had to wait until her birthday to listen to this. But once I have now, I am sorry that I waited. It shows how love, true unconditional love, can bring you thru anything,.and preceded wrongly it could destroy what has taken so long to build you up. One of the hardest of emotions, Grief. And one of those seven of deadly's that tag along with Grief is Pride that had this girl by the throat and was choking her and was not going to let her go, she was going to need that stronger person to help her. To snap out of it But while she was this hard core women she was a witty, strong willed, hard to deal with person, that most would not even cross. She was a soft human under all that ugliness she that held those sorrowful emotions that were killing her to have a happy life. And he saw it. He was determined to save her from no other than,,,, herself. Yep it was her doing so much harm by not letting the people around her in.. This is a story of strong true love, sadness, warmth, friendships, and let me say this now... humor was outstanding. The strength of not letting go when it get's tough was her greatest strengths within herself, but she had other issues at hand as well. It's a beautiful HOT story that ends so perfectly. I loved every thing about it. And..oh my the sex in the story was so wonderfully put into a places when needed. I loved the humor so much I cried also at that. It showed we are human and other issues we face as lovers are out there. As I listen to books or read, I wonder why some of these things are never mentioned or addressed. I loved how he Braden held on to her with every thing he had. Never failing to show her how much he wanted to be just beside her. Her rock. So happy they did that. At the beginning,it was hard, and I even had to stop and at times just to process what she was doing. and sometimes it even repeated itself. So that is why I only gave it 4 stars. Somethings didn't need to be drawn out and lean on over and over. Just my point of view. But, this is an outstanding book, and a great listen and I can't tell you how many times you should have this book. I am sure by this time you mostly do. It took me a while to put my demons away to get to it. But oh my what a great book. It will not disappoint. These are my type of books.. Right here.. Looking forward this winter into going into the minds of her friends as well.. Happy Listening.
Well it ranks in the top 10 for me.. but here is the sad part.. Audible don't carry the 3rd book.. What kind of Hot Mess is that?
FSOG with a great story line
just these two books so far
Yes, a lot of them..
This book Book 2 picked right up where Book one left off.. Love when that happens. So.. Bianca recovering and she finally see's James, and they pick up with some understandings. However, in this book, I found that they went back and forth about who trust who the most or who is doing what on who. A lot of history is brought up when they should let it go. I mean I know she was a virgin, and not going to have much of a past, not like him, but she knows this..he tells her everything..she is hard on Mr. Beautiful I think.. But anyway, they find out a shocker thru this book and they are more in love than ever and you get ready to listen to book 3 and GUESS WHAT.. AUDIBLE DON'T HAVE BOOK 3. OMGOSH.. WELL GUESS I AM GOING TO GO BUY A BOOK TOMORROW, AUDIBLE NEEDS TO STOP DOING THIS TO US.. MAKES ME WANT TO JUST STOP WITH LISTENING TO BOOKS AND GO BACK TO READING AGAIN.i DO BOTH, AND THAT'S OK,, BUT DON'T ADVERTISE THIS SERIES AND THEN DON'T CARRY IT.
NO! Since I read and listen to books, either way, I understand them. Print or Listen, I like them both! I had never heard much about this one, and now I wished I had either bought it or listened earlier.
of course Bianca is the strong one here, but her best friend, has got to be the hero in this book. Always has her side.
Bianca. she has a good women's voice,,
It's a great Book.. sorry it took so long to get to it.. I think the second one is out, and can't wait to pick it. This is a lot like of course FSOG, just up in the air. And James is a little less tense than Christian Gray. But I really enjoyed the change with the airlines in this and BDSM is not as strong in this.. as some I have listened to.. But it was HOT..and that always has my vote..
I have enjoyed these books since they hit. I like the fact, I can lay back and listen to them anytime I want. No eye strain, just listen to them. And Grace and Sebastian, your amazing at this.. way to go.. Your the best.
this question is not even...fair.. When Ryan, Max and Will get together, you just know you going to laugh so hard, you can 't stop. I can't count the number of times I have laughed at the antics of those three together. If they are not pulling something on each other, it's talking to each other about what is about to happen with their women. It great. I the most memorial moment in this for men.. was these men playing a joke on Will in this book. They and his girl friend who went along with it, gave him a hard time.. I laughed so hard... So either way.. you can't help but enjoy it all..
When these two read, I want to listen, I know it's intense usually HOT and you can get lost in those two being into anything. And Sebastian York's voice is so flipping sexy, you wish you could listen to him all the time. Hell I just want the man to read me a bedtime story...lol He could read a road map, and I would be drooling. And Grace does a great man's voice in this listen ... she has really mastered others as well.. She has really come a long way since I first started listening to her. Now she is one of fav's
Enjoy, laughter, HOT SEX, Anger, Tenderness, all in one short listen.
Any time you put Christina Lauren, the two authors of this series, your going to have great books. Together they can take you all over the emotional roller coaster and you will still want more. And never forget it's always HOT... I love this series and these types of books.. It's getting harder to find, but I keep searching and once in a great while I find them. These are always a good one to turn to. Be a full book listen or read like this you can't go wrong. . But sadly I understand this is going to be the last one. With the Beautiful Series, you can't help but laugh, cry, cheer them on and wait for the next sentence. And never forget the sex is always Hot. Since I read and listen, I kind of know what is coming, but I try now to listen before I read. . These books are great. I don't know for sure, but I am understanding this was the last of the Beautiful Series, and I really hope not. To much was left undone. Max and lady are going to have a baby, and Will announces something in this books as well.. So I hope we hear more. And it would be hard on us that love this series.. After what these two Ryan and Chloe brought out for us to read, It would be a shame to stop this. So much to continue on. I see another book is coming out, a paranormal book, and I just don't read that type. So if this is the end, I have enjoyed the ride. I will find authors who do write similar to this. In this book, ., I can wait to buy the book to add to my collection of this series. And hope they reconsider bringing this to the big screen as well.. It's a great start that can move forward if they (the authors) wanted to. Great job ladies.
Funny, Good, and Sexy
I loved these books, and it had a great story, just had to remember to stick to the story line and remember narrators only read, some are better than others. And I adored the music that was mentioned along with this.
Going to have to say I love Bunny's interpenetration of of Laurelyn. She did a good job with Laurelyn and she even did good with Jack Henry. And I need to say again, I did love these two books.
I think the name was great.. it was a Surrender for both.
These are GOOD Books, first and you have to have the second to follow up. They are a great couple and it was cute, and I laughed at them, and also cried. If you can just keep in mind that the narrators are only reading this, you will enjoy this. It's good. You will fall for Jack Henry. For sure. you will...
yes, but got a problem with Robert Black's performance. He sounds mechanical or robotic. Now Bunny did a great job even with his voice. But yes, I could look past his voice. But the story is so good, I got past the narrators after while.
Through the entire book it has to be Laurelyn. She has the great southern accent. and she could come up with some great one liners. The best was this.."He was hotter than the devil's ass"," And oh Hell to the NO".. was also Good!
When he Jack Henry was so jealous, he was sure a hard core Alpha Male.. And there was a lot of that.
I loved when he took her to his parents home.
This book is good. No it was GREAT. It had so much in it and kept my attention and this couple was good together. And the ending, be prepared to get the second book. She leaves him. and he let Pride get in the way. And when she leaves, he loses her. They are great together, and I loved the story, but I would of loved to have more of a "BEDROOM" relationship. Oh it leaves you to think what you want. It was tender love. This is a good listen and don't forget to get the second one. Also, a third one is coming out. But Jack Henry, is one heck of man. He loves his Laurelyn. and they are really a great compliment to one another. So YES, I recommend this book, to all of us that love our great hot books.. minus the HOT, just a simmer.
I AM GOING WITH RIVER, HE HAD TO ENDURE A LOT.
Christian did a great job with Ben voice, even though I think he does a sexy River. Also Veronica, I would watch out for her.. She is going to be one of the up and coming voices you will love to listen to. They both were outstanding
yes, and I did, all day today..
I waited for this book to come out, and it was killing me. After reading the first one, I was out of my mind. I just knew that cliffhanger was going to destroy me and a group of others that were following Ms. Karr books. And we are very happy this book was written the way it was.. . But tonight I am proud to say we are Happy and tears were flowing over the love these two have for one another. I got to say this as well. Nothing was boring about this book. She wrote everything that was needed to keep them in the space they were at from book one. It was good to see emotions, fears, and pure anger come out in this, it was needed to make this book what it had to be. Second time I have said this.. These are books that made women read.. And they are hard to find. Pay attention authors.. this is what we love, adore and want.
Oh I already have, and the reason, cause I don't want to miss one word of it. It's that good.
It don't, it's the Will and Hannah story, and well done I might add.
yes, I have, and I think these two should do a lot of these book type of books together, they are great and who ever is writing books like these should beg these two to read them, They do amazing things to books of hot romance.
yes, and did so.. and then got up today and re-listened to it. It's that wonderful
This book and it's hard to say, may be my favorite.. and that is saying a lot. it's hard because I like the Max and Sara story as well.. but let me say, I waited for this to arrive knowing that once it got here, nothing was going to get done ANYWHERE as long as I got this book. This book had all of my attention and it was well worth it.. Amazing job to the Authors can't wait until you bring more of these two into our lives. Thank you Christina and Lauren. You are fabulous. This book was a home run..Take note: anyone that is writing, these ladies know how to write a Hot, funny, intelligent romance novel. It has it all. These are what we look for in books, Or I do. Outstanding job meeting Will and Hannah. I loved them.. First book I have listen to on Audible in a while, cause you just can't find this any more.. I love it. There are not enough stars to let people know it's that good and a wonderful book. And not enough books like these out there.. Not this good.. Only a handful of writers can write like this.. And I own all those books..
OUTSTANDING, BEAUTIFUL, AND REALISTIC
Every word is this book is beautifully written and all consuming. There are no word to say what this book will do to your mind, heart and sole. Every emotion you carry in your life,you will experience with this. Get ready.. this is Jasinda Wilder at her best. My best moments is always about Jason and his strength and never ending love for his Becca. And bringing Nell and Cole into this, helped me with the ending of both books, a tear jerking HEA.
That were outstanding. I knew with each change of voice who it was. They were not only good, but will capture you with each chapter of this book. You can't help but listen and be caught up into everything they were saying. I adored them in both books. I Fell Right into Them!
Yes, two! First Ben. that boy made me laugh and cry. And you have to listen or read this to understand why I choose him. And Second, Jason, with his father. He withstood so many obstacles, he became the better man when he was only a young boy.
This is Jasinda Wilder's best written book to date, I have no words to explain what you will feel with this. It felt real, life altering and it could be you or even your neighbors. But no matter who this may remind you of, it hits home, or down the street, it makes you appreciate what is. I listened, stopped, walked around wondering if what was coming was something they could handle. They always did, it was hard, but they would come back and face it head on. They were first loves, an first time lovers, and only knew each other, but they trusted one another so much in every thing. This is a book that is a must have in your collection. My favorite book was Falling into You, until this one. Both her books are now on my must have collection. I always hand these books to anyone that wants to read and hold on to something real. I thought Falling into YOU, was the best ever.. And now Jasinda Wilder took her second book and made me see we all are can with stand more than Nell and Colton did. Which was a lot. Like me, some of you will see part in here that have your life in it. I guess that is why I loved it so much.. This book felt so real, This is what goes on in a young person's life and follows them until they are young adults. It's not sappy, yes, I will say, there are sad times, but don't we all have those. You will laugh out loud, and cheer because of the happy times. And yes you may even cry out load, and finally you cheer them on to a better life. A deserving one. Please don't take this and wrap it up as a sad, sad, story, because it is a love story, and beautiful to behold. It's gentle, lovable, and so sweet to hear. The dark times they have, they hold tight and endure them. Again it is true love at it's best. Don't be afraid to get this book, listen to it, and take it all in. Let it wrap around you and make it your own special love story. Yes this is Jason's and Becca's story, and it fantastically told. It has some amazing love scenes that may even take you back a few years. . Short and to the point, It will be hard to ever replace this one and what it all centers around. Love, trust openness, and honor. The kind you have . It let's you see that opening up and letting someone in to help you thru some of life's harder times is the best thing sometimes. And having someone that is there beside you through life's most enjoyable times as well.. And they have some wonderful journeys. Jason and Becca took what was given to them, and made it work for them. They were adorable, making it work in college in small apartments never once thinking they had it hard, They just kept moving toward what they wanted. They set high goals in high school and made sure each other made it.. Helping each other. As only they could. They are strong, willing to show how much they love on another, and face anything....good and bad, And they did it right beside each other. always holding on to each other. These two had more heart and drive when the odds where so against them. They are driver to make a better life than what they have seen while growing up.. It's shows how parents can become over protective and what that can do to a young mind, You will think about this book if you are a parent or guardian of a life that you are molding. . This books feels like it should be read every so often to reminds us of what is dear and near to us all... For me it was, true love, family, and dear dear friends. Buy this, use your credit, inhale all it has to offer. I don't give a review like this not unless it moves me. And this book did. . Enjoy and Happy Listening. Be prepared to Cheer, Laugh, Wonder, and at cry with them both.endure so much. good and bad.. If nothing else, you will need tissues for the happy times, which you will love, and the sad times. that make you think.. Enjoy.
unconditional love, misunderstandings, and heartbreak
at the moment, still thinking about this read, I cannot think of anything I have read that brought my heart "OH No" tears and "Thank God" sighs as this did. It's all in this book for Woods, Della and friends.
They fit Woods and Della so well. It's as if they understood how they felt and portrayed it all on Audio for us. I could hear the joy, sadness, fear, and so much concern for everyone, Emotions run so deep this TRIP around. You stay focused and you WILL want to climb in this book and help them so much. It's a love story that could stand alone if you didn't read the first book. I loved this Abbi Glines!. It's so good. All in!!!!
Trip and Brayden. My hero's here..
Honestly, I read her first book and feel in love, And this the second was a compliment to that. Woods and Della needs understanding of the past and what they are both going through. What happened in this book needed to happen. I didn't think that when it come to be as I was reading, but afterwards it had to in order to understand the past and come to terms with the future.. I pray this series is not over, and want of this couple that have NOW have open eyes and a clear understanding of each other past's and hearts and what has keep them from being complete for one another in more than just being in love. They were badly hurt but unjustly so parents, but there is "snap to moments", ( actually several) that surprise you and they needed to be mended.. Great, great romance hot love scenes, totally raw honesty from so many directions that now you know more of each other's battle better and how they set out to conquer and pull together. With the help of dear, dear friends. Some new and from the past. These friendships that are on top of what each other needs are and help them bring them back from the brink of complete and utter sadness and for Della her darkness.. It also will want you to bring out the gloves for those who have always been trouble makers. Woods and Della are merely surviving, holding on, thinking they can make it like this. until she makes a major decision thinking it's best for Woods. She once again, didn't understand, only wanting what she thinks is best. She is such an unselfish person and the love being so deep for him, she will give up her happiness for a brief moment in time to show him that her love is so great for him But Wood's is no idiot. He will sit back and watch everything concerning his Della. Letting her be he own person and making herself whole. But after listening to this book, I understand why she had to do what she did. Woods also had chapter's in his life to end and start. He needed Della to continue with her searching but as she did, he did the same with his past, remembering his grandfather's visions for the family dynasty. Wood will come to terms with all that has been a thorn in his side. His closure from a few things in his life as well set's him free to be a MAN of his word to all that know him and love him. Things he did out of respect for his father and mother are no longer a duty, He makes them understand it's an honor for them as his son. His time has come. His father had just died, And Mother, well, Mother is another story as you will hear in this.. Becoming that strong Man, business or otherwise changes him toward those who control him once.. a new Woods is about to unleash.... A strong man that don't withhold anything emotionally and verbally. He don't take advice from anyone that has been in his way before, NOW, he give the advice. I as a reader and listener was so proud of him. Nothing, I mean nothing would stand in his way. In this book he completely understands what his father never told everything,. Yes Woods will change, but looking through his beloved grandfather's eyes.. Someone Woods admired and is a lot like. While wheels are in motions Changes start coming from every direction. They were upsetting to me. From the readers aspect, I thought why Woods' and Della do this.. but looking back, it had to come full circle in order to move forward. It had to. His father almost destroyed his life in book one..Hence that marriage Woods never wanted. Clarity for Wood is ":All in" that will make total seance during the listen. And Della is his. Make no mistake. Change is good here.. But FATE changes things again and has a have a way of taking control and becoming out of control. In this you will need tissues. It does become so emotional and what is looming, is the start of what I see in a future book. Your last hour of this listen is hard, but important. TRIP time is on the way... It's what I hope the beginning and a means to and end. This is a great book. I am totally into strong Alpha men, Hot love scenes, Women that knows what they want an these men fall so deeply for them cause of how strong they are. But it's getting harder to find a good book I like. I think I have read over 75 of them now since I changed my reading genre' from what I used to read. I enjoy this new path and wish Audible would follow some other book clubs that have such a larger selection. And I do wish some of us could email each other to help guide us into that book we love. I wish you all happy listening and I do think you will enjoy this.. Off to find another HOT book... Abbi's books, most are young love to me. I like mature reading, I love dual narrations, it adds so much to the listen. like this one did. And for the record, there are two male voices, that make me melt, This man Sebastian York, is one of them.. WOW oh Wow... And if your are like me... Yes the sex is amazing due to his deep voice it's intoxicating. Very HOT, it's not for young teenagers and I would say it's even mature reading in some parts, which I love. , it's got adult language....that was yummy.. Happy Listening.
EVERYTHING... WELL MAYBE A LITTLE SLOW IN THE BEGINNING, BUT GET READY TO OPEN YOUR HEART FOR THIS ONE..
Seeing River for the second time, it was cute
I don't like to give away spoilers.. but I love this book so, I listened to it twice as not to miss a thing..Veronica Meunch while reading kinda mess up, but you can get past that for this one..
yes, when he said he had met her before.. Bingo... we are on roll now..
This book moved me in more ways than I can write about.. I was scared, mad, in love, and turned on.. And I am not into bikers or rock bands.. but this book had music I knew of and loved it. and the way it ends... let me say, I will be looking into that. I loved this couple together, this book was so rightly named. It's good, you can't really talk about it much without spoiling,, but this is a hit.. Goodness gracious, make a movie from this one.. what a winner... He (River) loves her (Dahlia) so much, and what she went through, OMG, what a strong women.. I listened and then ran it back to hear it again, cause it gripped me in a way not many books do. For me this was a slow roll book. Sit and gather and enjoy but, then wait something is on the way... This book me on several emotions all of which I embraced. I wanted to, I had to I was with them. For me the writing was outstanding. Here is why the love that is genuine. Anyway.. there is no reason, what so ever why I should say don't listen to this. I mean it has it all. Yes, even the Hot love scenes that I look for they were cleanly written. but Hot nonetheless.. This writer is so good, you feel like you are in the room with these people.. I adored it. And it takes a lot for me to say that.. I wanted to pick up Dahlia and just hold her.. and River,, good thing he is not real.. I would be looking to see him play...And I don't do that.. Let me say this... when you listen pay close attention at first, player even closer attention midway, cause l caught a lot the second time around.. You have give away's in here. But we shall see if I am right with the second book...She has someone that shows her what and who she really is.. But listen to the entire book.. I for one..Can't wait until it comes around with the second one.. Needless to say, I loved this. I hope I don't have a long wait, but here recently, I have to really search to find a good book. So glad I went to someone who I knew would be straight forward and listened to her.. She told me.. that this is one that some will either hate or love..and she loved it so I knew I would.. Happy Listening..
