The dialogue and the narrators. I've had the book on my kindle for weeks and have been reading it in my spare time. I finally got the audio book and couldn't stop listening. The way Kate would put a slight southern accent in her voice and by it you knew Brooke was upset is so impressive.
The other Tammara Webber books (Between the Line Series, Easy), K.A. Tucker books (Ten Tiny Breaths, One Tiny Lie), or Jessica Park's, Flat Out Love.
They were awesome. I like Kate's male characters more then Todd's female characters but they are wonderful at what they do. Todd even handled the voice of a child well. Both narrators gave good distinction between the character's voices and I knew who was talking even if it wasn't clearly delineated. As I stated before, the way Kate would put a slight southern accent in her voice; and, by it, you knew Brooke was upset was so impressive.
Tammara Webber's descriptive phrasing. She is so good at what she does and helps me to really empathize with the characters.
I am going to preface this review with the fact that I read Let Love Live prior to reading this story. I am a HUGE fan of MM books and enjoyed the friendship between Reid and Dylan immensely. In Let Love Live, we get to see how life was in the Connelly household growing up. I was very interested in seeing how Reid dealt with the situation and how he grew from it as he got older. 90 % of the information we received about Reid's past in Let Love In conflicts with Let Love Live. It really turned me off from the story.
Also, Maddy's obsession with Reid's purported cheating I just did not get. I understand he was a player prior to Maddy, but a player does not equate cheater in my book. Just because he liked no strings sex, doesn't mean he lies about it. Actually, everyone makes it clear in the book that he never lies about being a "ladies man".
I, also, understand that losing a lot of people in her life makes Maddy wary of relationships and loving another, but I do not understand the leap to the person I will love will hurt/cheat on me. Or, why she would insist that Reid forgive his mother when he (from Let Love In's storyline) has great reason to never speak to her again. Her reasoning that she lost her mother (who was a kind, loving, person) means that Reid has to forgive his mother (who was a selfish, uncaring b*tch) doesn't make sense.
And, finally, I know that I am way more liberal than the majority but to have a Dr. tell a single, 18 year old girl that she has to love and keep her "baby" when she is a few weeks along made me so angry. I would hope that, heaven forbid, my daughter was ever in that situation, educated people that are in a position to advise her would let her know that she has her whole life in front of her and that having a child at 18 may not be the best choice for her future. Even if they don't mention/bring up the right to choose with her, they could at least mention adoption. To say that a "baby" will be with you forever now and that Maddy should be happy reeks of judgmental attitudes that earlier in the book Reid's character stated was the reason his brother took the actions he did.
Better writing, better narrator
I love a sweet love story but this was over the top. Within the 6 hours and 45 minutes of listening, all of the suffering hero's problems were solved. The writing did not appeal to me. I don't know if the narrator was bad or if I just hated the writing so much, I couldn't handle John Solo's narration.
disappointment, bile rising.
definitely not worth a credit.
Yes. The dialogue is laugh out loud funny.
Carter. He is just so sweet. I loved Drew too. We all need a friend like that. :D
She is HORRIBLE. The characters all have the same voice. It would be like me reading a book out loud. The male and female characters sound the same, so you have to figure out who is talking by the context. So frustrating for an audio book.
Seriously funny. Great way to escape and put yourself in a good mood.
Some parts were over the top, but the overall book was very sweet and funny.
