I did not read the print version of this book. I did, however, thoroughly enjoyed the audio version.
Both of the main characters stood out each in their own way. Their interactions with each other were great...funny, caring, romantic. Each character was strong, but , then again, each needed someone to count on and someone to care for them. they found that in each other.
It would have to depend on how bad I wanted to listen to the book. If there was one draw back in the listening of this book it was the narration. Underwood did not do a good job in distinguishing betwwen the male and female voices. In many dialogues I had a hard time telling just who was doing the talking because they sounded just like each other...not good when one was female and one was male.
Yes...most definitely. I had a hard time putting my Kindle down and doing other things...
Brighton id a great job in writing this novel. I look forward to reading more of her books and just hope that Audible will put more of them out there for all to enjoy.
Most definitely. I found this book to be intense, funny, sad, thought provoking...just an all around good start to another Brighton series.
You know, I really cannot think of another similar book. This book had lots of different aspects that led to it being a very good listen. One could feel the pain that Leo had endured for years. You could feel the total isolation and intense emotions he felt. Ella brought out the best in Leo and made/helped him realize that loving someone does not necessarily lead to losing them.
I have always liked Ashford MacNab's performances. She adds just the right amount of emotions for each character. While listening to her I can totally picture the character and circumstances surrounding the events taking place. Great job!
Life can bring people together in strange ways
Keep them coming Lori Brighton...Your books keep getting better and better!
Yes, if someone else was doing the narration. The story was just a straight forward romance. No mysteries to solve, no evil characters hanging around--just a "let's listen to this and enjoy" kind of story. Sometimes it is just nice to listen to an "easy" listen.
The relationship between all the characters--not just Simon and Toni. These four individuals has made a true family for themselves and it was fun to listen to the interplay between them all.
Get a different narrator. When I listen to my audiobooks, I like to be able to distinguish between the different people in the story. This narrator used almost the same voices for all the characters...male, female, young or old. AND when the story calls for someone to yell or get angry or upset, it would be nice for the narrator to at least change the tone of the narration....It was all the same drab thing...Happy, angry, crying, scared...never a change in the tone . Unbelievably bad!
Some of the scenes were funny. Some of the reactions to how Toni would act or look...that was pretty funny
I have already recommended this book. The storyline and characters were absolutely wonderful. A great overall book!
Abigail and Brooks were each strong characters. Abigail's direct, to the point personality caused for some intense as well as gumorous dialogue. Brooks was the perfect character for Abigail. He was not put off by her different personality. In fact, he thrived on it. Just two wonderfully deverloped characters
The narration causes the story to come to life. It provides a definite mental image of each person. Wonderful job
Shile the whole story was intense and fascinating, the ending was just over the top. It made me believe in happily ever after.
