The audio is definitely much preferred in this case cuz it got me through the book faster, not that I wanted it to end. But I just the opposite, I couldn't stop listening and the audio made it easier.
This is a toughy because both main characters, Nikki and Damien, are lovable to me. Both characters are strong and very independent but they need each other. I think being with and seeing the other makes the character see and understand him/herself more. And that's what I love about this book. Both characters are facing similar demons and realize their bond is stronger than these demons.
The entire book was just full of raw emotion and was very moving all around but I think the moment he confesses that he's been watching her and wanting her for years because he knew they were kindred spirits was really moving.
The part of this book I hated the most was when it was over. I wanted it to continue. I am so excited for the next book in the series (Claim Me), which will be out next month (April 27th) YAY. I hope the second book touches more on his personal life.
All the raw emotion on both sides and trying to break the barriers is what makes it such a powerful listen. It is a lot like 50 shades and Bared To You.
This story was like a modern romance on crack! There were too many major points to contribute to the story line but not enough build up. I felt like the story was like BAM point 1 then BAM point 2 then etc. The story was rushed! I guess modern romances now are trying to meet/ exceed the "50 shades" standards, but it took 3 books to tell that story. I don't want to read a book and think I'm getting the "cliff notes" version.
Also, the narrator was not that enjoyable to listen to. I think he gave a one note performance and even he rushed some of the dialogue. If a man narrates a romance, then he should narrate it in more of a sultry tone.
If you are looking for the typical hero saving the tortured woman romance, do not download this book. If you want a quick read, forget this book. It makes you think. It is so full of blemishes on all three of the main characters parts (morals I am so against). I wanted to slap them all and put the book away so many times, but because it was so dramatic I just could not put it down. I usually save my listen for work (so no listening outside of work). I began this book on a Friday afternoon. The book was like a bad car crash, I couldn't stop listening and I finished in a few days (over the weekend/ outside of work). I was so engulfed and wanted to know what happened next.
I do agree that the author could have shortened the book. I didn't need to hear description of every nook and cranny here and there. And the recording is of very poor quality. I'm not saying the narrator was bad, but I got a lot of background noise.
Overall it was a very interesting twist on modern romance. Even the bad need their good times.
I did like this book and listening to it added an interesting pull. The narrator made it sound like a mockumentary. I felt I was watching a story of his life on The History Channel. That definitely added a some intrigue.
It was an uplifting, positive story.
I would've changed the narrator. She was too nasally and whiny. Or I would've used 3 different narrators.
This story did seem a bit adolescent at times, and not just when Mosey was telling her story. It was a bit predictable.
