    God has gone to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about - the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accurate, and easy-to-understand text of the NIV, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.

    Ryan says: "An easy to understand Bible translation."

    Any additional comments?

    I saw a few comments about The Story leaving out parts of the Bible..absolutely, it is not a translation or even a paraphrase. The purpose of this book was to allow all members of a family to study the same time in Bible history at church and then give them common themes and events to talk about. It does leave out lots of what I consider "important" things, but since we were doing it in "adult" church and my grandsons were doing the kids version we all were studying the same part of God's upper story together. Without taking part in the study that happens along with this book it may be difficult to understand the purpose of this format.

    #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh returns to the world of the Breeds where animal instincts can bring a feral pleasure to every man and his willing female mate.

    Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Briana Bronte?

    The reader has not let me down, but the author sure has with this one! I have always liked the Breeds story line, and will probably read the next book, just to make sure I get the overall story arc covered, but I don't think I can live through listening to the same conversation 25 times again!


    What could Lora Leigh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book could have been written in half the pages! Lawe and Diane have the same conversation... can I trust him, does he trust me, will he let me be the woman I need to be, can I trust her, if she loves me she will do things my way ..yada yada yada....at least 25 times in the book, and honestly, I understood the conversation the first time. Got it, move on...please!


    What aspect of Briana Bronte’s performance would you have changed?

    I like Brianna, she is a good reader. Jonas' voice got on my nerves simply because of where she pitched it, but no big deal.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    As I have already said...very disappointed. It is hard when you wait for a long time for a book in a series to come out and then when it does...it lets you down in a big way. Have had a couple of other writers do this to me many many books in....maybe it is time to tie up the loose ends and move on to another series, for both the reader and the writer.
