I love to have a little angst obviously tormenting a character throughout, but when there's just an out right annoying bitchy character that keeps saying the same things over and over yet expecting different things to happen....well it was just frustrating. I'm sorry but as much as I loved the story and yes, CAN'T WAIT for the next-Beth was just irritating to the end. I won't give any spoilers but just be prepared to muddle through her stubborn character throughout the book while the rest of the family is built up around you preparing for the rest of the series!
Absolutely - her flow within each scene is wonderfully done, and there isn't the young writers bumpy ride from one place to the next because every sentence starts with...he says...she says....come on people!?! If you are carrying a conversation in stride, emotions, sighs, and simply a pause will carry the story between one person and the next. When a story always starts with...Peter looks out, Peter says...then Peter said....Peter picks up....etc. we get it - please stop wording it over and over. This is what Shannon Stacey doesn't do to annoy me. Everything plays out between people smoothly by their words, actions and thank you Shannon!
Kevin is dancing with Lily in the Kitchen-so sweet!
Wasn't sure how Silas's story was going to play out but soo happy how it did! Great listen on how a troubled guy can get past the hurdles that life tosses his way. Oh...and Dylan, love her! She has her own hiccups in life but definitely knows how to make it through!
I really enjoyed this soccer themed tricky romance. A little fun, flirting, evil jealous mean girl and of course, hot soccer players! This a good listen, typical athlete issues of dating, trials and tribulations but what I enjoyed the most is that the main character didn't turn into a complete dummy or push-over when things got dicey. She kept a good head in the game!
Another emotional ride worth going on!
The lead was a tad annoying at first showing her bitchy side but it was pretty reasonable with what she was getting so...a little love/hate relationship with a hot guy is a given fun ride. But there is some happy, some sad tears, some lust and fury, but as it all plays out-it will leave you downloading the next book soon after!
I can't wait for the sisters story next! This was such a nice listen, love, anguish, the evil parents only out for themselves and making their kids lives so much harder....oh, and a hot duke!
I have to say this has turned out to be a fav! BUT there's a catch...I can never listen ti it again. It had me laughing, smiling, crying, bawling, and all around emotional ride that I'm sooo happy I took. This series has a TON of stuff going on that grabed me, dragged me down deep into its depths and when I realized what was about to happen I couldn't turn back. There is a beautiful, sweet romance built from an innocent place of two pen pals.
At 15, they both go back home from camp to live their lives and all of the trials and tribulations their families entail. Luckily, with the turn of events they each go through, they both know that with a simple pencil & paper, or paintbrush and canvas, they have their friendhip to reach out to for support. Over time, they both realize how much that support has carried them through some of the hardest times their young lives could hand out.
Now living in an adult world of their own, they still keep in touch, still share their most innermost thoughts, and still provide eachother with a distant strength that they both need on soo many levels just to survive the next day.
So what happens if they were to see eachother now.....
Grab a tissue, its worth it
This was such a good listen! We've all got something in our past that we regret, some aren't that serious but for everyone...there's always a "what if I had done this instead" playing in the back of our heads and you can't deny that. Now I've listened to many angsty type romances and sooooo many of them have me irritated by the main female character and how stupid she seems by not saying anything until its too late. With this, although there are moments of a little frutration, the author made sure to acknowledge the idiocy, which in some strange reason helped smooth over the moments. In the past I've had the books where I was so irritated in the repitition of her angst that I put the book down for a bit and just walked away...I mean ok, something bad happened, I totally understand - or I would just skip over half a chapter to get past the annoyance. BUT - with this story, it kept moving along...it didn't have me banging my head on how the dark past was holding her back over and over and over like some authors. I felt the frustation with here and not at her....that was a nice change. She has a past, he has a past, but they both are trying to get through it to find a happy place again. Kuddos! Now onto the next in this series yay!
This was a cute read...err...listen! I always like the stories that have that "open your eyes" moments after highschool hell. We've all had that one person from school, old job or somewhere that you just wish you could find out what their problem was and what better than someone that you had a crush on! Very cute, of course there are a few moments that I was screaming...just say why!!!....and they don't which urked me, BUT I kept on listening and was pleased. Can't wait for the second one to come out in Feb!
Pretty intense, tragic lives and a hard road to peace. A little odd that the pieces didn't fall together sooner for the characters because it was pretty obvious in parts...but hey, I enjoyed it.
Goodness...I hate to compare, but it was really hard not to invision the tragic dance with death that Bella did in the ...umm....famous vampire series that I shall not admit to listening/reading...tee hee. But It was really similar, a persons heart was broken, moving through life as a zombie....just going through the motions and WHAM....the past comes up and forces its way into the reality you've been trying to ignore. Although I find her bitchy stubborn side annoying and frustrating at times.....its all worth it!
This one was really hard due to the additional turmoil the future holds. There's a bit of detachment that was weird, but SOOOOO many ups and down with kinks in a perfect plan that will definately keep you listening. Although..... the ending....oooohhhhh the ending......where's the third - NOW!
