I don't know why I just could not get into this book; most likely it's due to the story being centered around kids and I have a hard time getting into a story that feels like something my teenagers would read instead of me.
On a positive note, I liked the narrator and am not saying this is a poorly written book just not something for a 30+ year old reader who needs more depth in my books.
This is my first book by this author, if I'd know it was about teens I wouldn't have purchased the book. I just couldn't get into the book at all.
For some reason I just can't get into this book. I've tried three different occasions and it just doesn't work for me. I think the premise is part of my issue but I also am not connecting with the characters. The narrator is decent in this book.
The author has yet to let me down with this series. I was very excited to hear Pic's story and the story held up to my expectations. The epilog was awesome and I can't wait to see if my guess is right.
This story was sweet and not really graphic but there was something missing for me and I don't know if it was the story or the narrator. The narrator didn't bring life to the story at all. There was no change in inflection or emotion to the reading. While it was a slow easy listen I am not in love with this one.
I feel like I've heard this story before. There was nothing that engaged me in this story and I found myself skipping forward waiting for something to happen.
As much as I enjoyed the 1st book in the Redemption series I loved this book. I laughed so often and Lucy Rivers brought this story to life just as she did in the 1st book. This was worth the wait and purchase.
I love all the books in this series and I was really looking forward to this book. I don't know if this book fell a little short for me because I had a hard time with the narrator or that I felt the story had no momentum but I was left wanting and had to push myself through this book which is weird as I've listened to the others in this series multiple times because I loved them so much.
I will still continue to get books by this author as I think this book was an anomaly for me and I love the authors work, just not sure I will get this narrator again as she didn't work well for me. I loved the narrator on the other 3 books, I felt they were excellent picks and I enjoyed the change in narrator. I thought it gave each person's story their own voice.
I've loved every book in this series and this did not disappoint. It was the most anticipated novel for me and I was not disappointed at all. All the questions I had from book 2 were answered and I am a definite fan. I am not going to give any spoilers and I can't wait or Picnic's story.
I am a huge Kristen Ashley fan so I pre-ordered this book as soon as I saw it. I was expecting a different book entirely. I'm used to her Rock Chick, Motorcycle Man, Fire Inside books and her writing style that was prevalent throughout the books. In this book I didn't find the normal writing style I'm used to and I was bored with the story line.
I will continue to support KA because she is amazing even though this series is not for me.
I awaited Nash's book with much anticipation and Nash did not let me down. We start Nash's story with drama and get to see quickly how he handles the curve balls thrown at him. Nash is a man easy to love and someone I wanted to get his HEA. There are so many lines from Nash that gave me butterflies and you couldn't help wishing you were on the receiving end of his love.
The only thing about this book that was not as expected was Saint. Being picked on as a kid, let down in the worst way by your first love, her college experience, I can understand why she is such an awkward young woman. Even her family situation makes her reactions more understandable. I just couldn't connect with her the way I was able to connect with Cora and Shaw. If I had been able to feel a connection to Saint it would have made this my favorite in the series because everything else in the book was outstanding. I am on pins and needles for Rowdy and Asa's story I just hope their story includes a female with more than Saint.
It's definitely worth the purchase and I will listen to this book again and while I LOVE Nash I'm not a big fan of Saints.
