I actually loved this book along with the first book "Weekends Required" Couldn't put either down. I also thought that Allyson Ryan did a great job. Her female characters sounded a little giddy at times but she clearly made up for it with her male characters. There are some really really bad narrators out there so I was pleasantly surprised. I can't wait for the third book in the series and I hope the same narrator is used (but I do hope Beth's voice is tweaked a bit but still looking forward to it)
It starts out slow but picks up in the second half. Filled with some fluff which gets a little boring. Still it was okay, especially the second half.
As for the narrators, they were ok. Shirl Rae is someone I have heard before but has changed her name. I would know that giggle anywhere.
Maybe I'm just over the whole broken soul dragging his heart around for hours of listening torture to be miraculously healed by some chick hopping into bed with him. It's just so dumb. The story line is weak and is mainly filled with fluff of the same agonizing dilema over and over and over and over and all they do is have sex that just gets monotonous. The dialogue is mainly in their heads so very little interaction...aside from the sex....which wasn't that good.
As for the narrators...Grace Grant was really choppy at times in her reading and Deacon Lee isnt always the strongest narrator but in his defense his character was pretty weak so what are you going to do?
The story was heavy but could be healing for someone interested in PTSD or abusive parents. You get a HEA but its a lot of serious going on.
I stopped when the female character disclosed her damaged soul and then the male character said "well, I might as well tell you I'm damaged, too and I don't think I'll be undamaged anytime soon but we can still have sex." Just ridiculous. I couldn't continue.
I have listened to all of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and those were awesome. Everyone of them! But this series is just plain old boring. I'm not looking for a bunch of torchered souls but it would be nice to have some twists and turns. Maybe even a little chuckle. Just something. I kept hoping but nothing really exciting happens. Need to rename it "Pleasant Valley" because everyone is pleasant. I think I am done with this group. Sorry Ms. Carr. Still love ya, tho.
Therese Plummer is awesome, however.
Other than the narrators, there wasnt much to this book. Pretty predictable and uneventful. Just dragged on and on.
I loved the first book in The Wild Ones Series and just kept hoping any of the rest would turn out good. Other than the first, these are pretty shallow. I'm giving up on any more to come. Just not that great.
Just a silly little light read There is a couple of funny parts but not much depth at all.
Book 4 and still really good. It jumps ahead a few years which is good so Hannah is a little older now. It's also fun to see where all the previous characters ended up ( but I miss them) Chloe Lynn did a good job as narrator because who doesn't like the accent, right? I would have liked her better if she had been able to differentiate her male and female voice because 1. it's hard to get into a dude when he sounds like a girl and 2. I had to stop and rewind several times to clue into who was talking at times. But still, worth the credit for sure.
I really liked this one. It takes up right where book 2 left off so I had to jog my memory a bit to understand what was going on. I liked book 1, book 2 was just ok for me but book 3 was really good.
As always, for me, it's success has a great deal to do with the narration, more specifically, the male character and Todd Haberkorn did the best job with Liam/Hunter. I'm still laughing at some of the stuff he says and does. He had me laughing with some of his sarcasm.
I thought some parts were a little disconnected in the evolution of the relationship between Em and Liam but it didn't ruin the story for me.
I gave it five stars because it held my interest the whole way through and I thought the dialogue was pretty realistic (not that I have a clue about what goes on in a motorcycle club) and, of course, Todd's narration. Also, because lately, some of the books out now are so dramatic and so corny that I have a hard time finishing them. I was thrilled to actually enjoy one to the end.
