Touching, passionate and gripping
Finn is my favorite Character. He is strong and the hero of course but he is also flawed and has to over come his need to be alone so that he avoids becoming vulnerable. Peyton wonderfully shows him the way through that. She also is a wonderful Character. Her determination to do the right thing in the face of evil as well as stand up to her family with her cousin all make her a great character in the story.
Amy McFadden is clear and easy to understand
I have actually listened to it three times now, never in one sitting but I always wish I could have.
This is one of my favorite audio books. I really enjoy the story and the characters. I do some times feel like Amy McFadden reads in a slightly perfunctory cadence which is not always preferable.
I truly enjoyed tis book from beginning to end. The narrator did good job with each character and as always Barbara Freethy did not dissappoint. She leaves the listener wanting to know what happens next. So thumbs up on this one!
Sorry, I had to stop listening half way through this one and strike the others from the series that I had in my wish list. Where is the story??
There is no plot at all.
This book might as well have been porn. it was pure sex. The Characters never had a chance to develop personalities even.
It was a decent performance.
90 percent of the sex scenes! I would have put in a plot and given the story a reason to exist.
Because the story line is so good I'd say this audiobook would rank in my top 10.
When Aiden finds Sarah at her house after she finds the box of pictures and sweeps her off to Redding for an escape.
Well, I have to say I was not very happy with Ms. Redding's performance. The women often sounded pouty or too your for their ages. Many of the men were dramatically too snappish or angry. In fact she made everyone too drama filled much of the time. I have listened to many books now and there is just no reason to have the characters sound so poised for dramatics so much of the time. It would do Barbara Freethy's books a boon to find a new narrator As her stories are very good and her characters are very likeable.
There are many but I suppose to pick one it might be when Aiden and Sarah go to visit Kyles Wife.
This book has a story that moves right along. it kept me listening and wanting more. It ended leaving some dangling ended that makes me want to move quickly on to the next book in the series. Barbara Freethy is a skilled writer.
I enjoyed listening to this story and following Cory's story as she made her way through her recovery. It was great to see how she and Ted grew together too. Very touching!
I did not read the print version
When Ryan visits the sight of Theresa's accident and says his goodbye to her.
He is does a great job with the male voices and tells the story well. Keeps the listener interested. He has a tendency however to make the women sound like they are talking in baby talk a little bit. I have noticed this in other books as well.
This book is far and away much better than book 1 in this series. I very much liked both lead characters. I still find Ted to be a pain and that would be fine if it helped the story line in any way but it does not. I also feel at times that some of the characters are over reacting to things. If they were on stage they would be over acting. I don't think this is the fault of the narrator either it is how it's written. Never the less. This book 2 is a huge improvement. I look forward to book 3.
I will try one more from this series but I am hoping it will have more likable characters in it.
I would have had the characters in it be so much less irritating. Noah and the Aunt were the only likable adults in the entire story.
I really liked CeeJays Aunt.
The feeling of actual chemistry between Ceejay and Noah. It would have helped too if she was a more likable person.
This story had potential. I stuck it out to the end but I found the endless nonsense with Noah's father and the budinski sherriff so very irritating. It seemed to go too far. They were both behaving too stupidly to even be the antagonists of the story.
I am sure I will listen to Fatal Burn again. It has such great twists and turns!
I am not sure there is any one book it can be compared to, at least not that I have read or listened to.
When Shannon forces her brothers to come clean about the truth of what they and their father had been doing.
No laughing or crying but it certainly had me feeling like I was on the edge of my seat. The suspense was great.
I like the twist that some of the characters who are normally good guys in books like these turned out to be shady. While this was sad for Shannon it was an unexpected change which was refreshing.
Reagan. She stood up to the overly Macho men.
Ed. He did Ed really well. I kind of wish there had been more scenes with her.
no extreme reactions.
Maybe In the middle. Nora Roberts is my favorite Author. This is clearly one of her early books. She improved a lot over the years.
When Dillon shows up at her classroom in France.
Most of the time. At times to was a bit slow.
When he thought she was selling her body not her locket and was so angry with her.
I am from Hawaii. The Narrator should have done a better job finding out how to pronounce the Hawaiian place names on Kauai. She really botched that. She also tried to give the local people some kind of an accent which came out sounding like some sort faint European accent. This could not be more wrong.
