First, I liked the first 3 books in this series but there has been so much time between them and book 4 I forgot so many of the characters from the past.
Second, I think this lacked ALOT of the depth the previous stories had.
Third, I had been a fan of Karen White but her male character sounded too much like a relative of Thurston Howl III from Giligans Island which tended to detract from the romance of it all.
That being said, it's an ok listen if you re so inclined. I might have liked it more if the male character's voice was a little better. Sorry....
SPOILERS: This is a beautiful story and was very well written. The characters were interesting and the narrators did a great job. The story seemed true to life and very believable. Only problem was that it was the saddest story I think I have read in a long time, if ever. I don't think I have ever cried this much over a book and felt this empty after I finished. Totally worth it if you don't mind the heartbreak. I prefer HEAs so I wish I knew what I was getting into because it will be awhile before I get past the sad. Just too sad for my taste. I gave it five stars because everything was great as far as the story and narration goes. It just wasn't what I like to read. Totally depressed with red puffy eyes now.
I thought this book dragged on and on and on. In fact, I was not really that good. The best part about it was Miller's sarcasm. Loved that side of him. That was actually pretty funny. The rest was boring. Sorry.
I have read this series and it is one of my all time favorites. Love, love, love! I loved it so much I thought I would listen as well but I could hardly get past the first chapter. Over time of listening to Ms. Craden she has become so overly dramatic and angsty and just way too much. I just can't listen anymore. Sorry. I recommend reading it. But I loved Mr. Crisden. I really am sorry, Abby. Just to whiny.
This was really good. May be better than the first book. Lots of humor. Very clever. Romance, suspense, humor! Loved it.
The narrator was unbelievable! So good.
This does not sound like Samantha Young's writing. I could not even finish it. There was no intrigue. Could predict everything that was happening and was overly dramatic. Is it just me or does anyone else cringe when the writing is so corny? People don't converse like this.
Unfortunately, the narrator was not good either. My ears hurt from the whole thing and I had to turn it off. Sorry.
I loved "Sweet Thing" so I am wondering who wrote this book. It is so corny that I am having trouble connecting this author with the one who wrote "Sweet Thing". Maybe it actually gets better toward the end but I am about half way through and I just can't finish it. Uncomfortable cringing.
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.
