Great listen! Had just enough mystery to a murder that was witnessed...sort of....
What exactly did Cameron see and not see, does the killer know, can the FBI protect her while they search? But of all the questions.....why oh why did the FBI have to assign Jack to this case...of all cases...why does the man who told the world I had my head up my *bleep* have to be the one to keep my safety, and truly...will he even try?
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!
This was just the begining of a rollercoaster ride of emotions! Powerful topics in this series and it was a crazy trip. I wanted to strangle some people for being so cruel, some stupid decisions made me cringe, but some wonderful moments of bliss kept me listening. Loved it! Now on to the next!
The passion was off the charts!
This one kept me listening non stop! It was a roller coaster of emotions.....nervous butterflies....crushing heatache, lustfilled antisipation and PASSION PASSION PASSION!!! Loved it!
Yes please, may I have another!!!
I loved this series and I loved Marco HOWEVER...I had a hard time with this one. I won't go into great details but Hanna was painted in my mind a particular way from the first three books, and I understand things that happen in life can and will change a person....however, sadly knowing exactly what she went through....I truly feel that a persons true being behind the hurt will still be there and shine through. Evven being guarded, and keeping to yourself, your entire being wont be witchy 24/7. Now, there were moments in the classroom that felt right, but anywhere else was hard to grasp. I really could not find the Hanna before anywhere. Even Joss, or Joe who had troubled pasts, had moment of kindness or had moment of clarity and the voice in their head to correct their bitchyness.....but not Hanna, well a few times that she would say it was unreasonable but was quick to say what ever, I'm bithcy anyways...it was weird......She stayed in a funk, was outwordly unkind, and extremly selfish with no remorse which I found very hard to grasp. I really wanted to hear Hanna & Marco's story but I think Samantha Young might have been in a rut or something. She kept repeating her selfish thoughts, just rewording it over and over...Hanna was simply witchy and unrealistic to the point I was really cursing her selfishness. Now, don't get me wrong I WILL CONTINUE TO THE NEXT BOOK ABSOLUTELY....but I really hope the characters dont continually "think" the same thing over and over and over and repeatedly react before asking for an explanation. I understand a few times to build angst, but geesh....things happened over and over and the reactions to them without clarification was causing me to turn it off for a bit simply out of irritation with the obvious. My biggest issue was the fact that at no point did anyone say "you never told"...that person.....and you continually are punishing them! Argh!I still love the series and the all the men! They do stupid things and the women are pretty idiotic at times but - thats all in a great series to keep you listening! Now on o the next!!!!
Although this one didn't have as much action from bad guys as the others-it was by no means a downer in the series! Great chapter for a character that was possibly frowned upon in the last book - a simply must to continue!
