Painful, Wonderful and Gripping
This story talked about a subject/ailment that I am completely unfamiliar with. The coping mechanism for the lead character for how she deals with stress and painful subjects is alien to me so I was intrigued.
Ms. Willingham was able to transition the characters from one point to another without losing me so I always knew what was going on.
Ms. Willingham did a great job.
I felt mostly sadness for Nikki but Damien does in fact turn the story around in to something more happy even with his own issues.
I did very much enjoy the series even with the alien subject for how Nikki copes with stress/painful subjects. I was intrigued through out the book and did not want to put it down. Dare I say I loved the series?? Yes
I absolutely love this book. Spoiler alert, it doesn't end with your typical love conquers all scenario.
Everything was memorable. I read some of the reviews first which some were brutal. Me being the cynic that I am caused me to want to listen to the story myself to draw my own conclusion. I was actually capable of relating to this story in more ways than I can count. I absolutely loved this story. Not certain on if I'll like the 3 sequels that follow but this story was great.
I have not listened to Mr. Abbey before but his voice was captivating. I'm not really certain on what it is (Lie) but I love the sound of a mans voice reading to me even if the lead character is a woman. Especially if the voice has a very masculine tone.
I laughed mostly plus I had a lot of OMG's, you go girl and shut the front door moments in the mix
If you're not always looking for the damsel in distress and gets rescued story then take a listen and draw your on conclusion.
Hilarious and Mouth Watering
The most note worthy moment to me is that Drew stepped out of his comfort zone to explore something new.
Mr. Sebastian York is Fantastic!!! He captured the comedy and sensuality of the story perfectly.
I love that Drew changed his comfort zone to show Kate how he truly felt (Tear Jerker)
This book was so unbelievably amazing I don't even know where to begin. I was laughing uncontrollably and melting at the intimate moments. In my opinion the story is very well written. I was immediately drawn in after the first chapter. Could not and did not want to put it down. I have over looked this book a few times and I completely regret that decision now but happy I finally gave it a chance.
Drew is completely swoon worthy and Kate is about as competitive and as strong as they get. Drew has finally met his match but not without some hilarious and mouth watering bumps in the road. I love that this book is from Drew's point of view. You don't see that very often with "romantic" stories. I don't even like defining this book as being romantic (even though it is) because I feel this story is so much more than that.
Now I'm Anxious For The Second Book To Be Released.
Did some homework to find that the second installment to this series "Twisted" will be released in March of 2014. The second book from my understanding will be from Kate's point of view. Not sure when it will be available for Audible but I will definitely keep my eyes and ears open for this one..
The book was un-memorable
If I absolutely had to choose I would say that my favorite character is Chloe
I had no problem taking breaks with this book.
The overall story for "Beautiful Bastard" is alright. I read other reviews where there was a plethora of people who loved the series so I decided to give it a shot. I've only listened to the first book from this series and decided that I wanted to change books immediately. Fortunately I found both "This Man" and "Gabriel's Inferno" which were definitely far more enchanting. At this time I'm not impressed at all by "Beautiful Bastard" but again I've only listened to the first book. I may change my mind once I finish the series but I don't have high expectations. At some point I'll listen to the rest of the series before I can give a more accurate review. I generally like to finish what I start no matter how painful. Right now I'm not anxious at all to see what will happen next with these characters.
I wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get in to it.
Excellent story in its entirety. Both of the lead characters are definitely tortured souls but eventually find peace within themselves as well as the supporting characters. The love scenes are not raunchy in any capacity but still gave me butterflies
Gabriel of course.. He is definitely the most tortured soul of them all but he changes into something wonderful especially once you get to the third book
I was uncertain at first about having a male read this kind of book but honestly due to the way the book is written the male voice was perfect and very soothing. Mr. Morgan was spectacular
I couldn't get enough of the story and Mr. Morgan's soothing voice so yes
So far I have completed multiple books that I have enjoyed. At this point my favorite books/stories have been the following sequels:
50 Shades - By: E. L. James
This Man - By: Jodi Ellen Malpas
The Stark Trilogy - By: J. Kenner
Gabriel's Inferno - By: Sylvain Reynard
Each time I try a new book I have been both disappointed and impressed. The disappointing books are not listed above only the ones I loved. At this time I am now completely in love with Gabriel's Inferno which is "NOW" my absolute favorite of the 4 books listed above. I may change my mind once the third book for "This Man" is released but right now my comment stands.I love John Morgan's voice. I think he more than anything is the one who brought this story to life for me.
Roller Coaster Ride
This book series is a bit similar to "50 Shades" in the rich, obsessive and possessive playboy chasing the woman. The most noticeable difference is the lead female character from this book compared to the lead female from "50 Shades". The differences between the two women is that the lead female character from this book is older and way more independent. Ava tries to escape from the rich playboy but eventually gives in as he is quite overbearing without completely relinquishing who she is. I love strong women. I also love it when the strong woman sometimes allows a man to be a man. There are definitely enough differences between the two books to keep me interested and anxious to see what will happen next.
The most note worthy scene for me is after Jesse gets lashed in his office and Ava in her own way tries to show Jesse how what he did made her feel by enduring the same punishment intentionally. Again - "Good Girl"
I was extremely disappointed to find that the third book to this series is currently unavailable for Audio. I did some homework to find out that the third book "This Man Confessed" is going to be released for Audio in the United States on January 21st 2014.
Be patient ladies "IT'S COMING"
Hot, Enchanting, Hypnotic
For me the most note worthy moment of this book is when Ava finds out what "The Manor" is actually all about and how she handles it. "Good Girl"
This is the first book I've heard Ms. Brychta perform and I was absolutely hypnotized by her
I loved the immediate spark between Ava and Jesse. In my opinion it was tastefully orchestrated which drew me in to the characters and kept me interested through out the story
I completed both Book 1 and Book 2 of this series within a week, I couldn't put it down. I am impatiently waiting for Book 3 to be released on Audible.... Book 2 ended with a shut the front door moment leaving me over anxious. I've been twiddling my thumbs and checking Audible daily to see if a release date has been set up yet but to my utter disappointment I am left with no signs for the release. Sigh... Still waiting
I have not read a book for fun in almost 10 years. This is in part to my work schedule and what my occupation Intel's. After years of being too busy to read anything not related to work I chose this book to get back on the wagon. I obviously chose wisely. This book was absolutely addictive. I finished this book within a few days and started the second book by the end of the week. By the end of the second week I finished the second book then started the third book. This trilogy was a breath of fresh air which made me feel emotions and curiosity that I never thought that I could experience from a book. I still did not have time to actually read this book so I listened to it in Audio format so that I am still able to continue to do other things while I enjoyed this book. For the first time I am truly in LOVE with a book... (Smiley Face)
My favorite character was definitely Christian Grey. I aspire to be more astute and driven like his character without the 50 shades of "Fu(expletive) Up"
Again this was the first book I listened to in Audio. Becca Battoe was magnificent
Absolutely.. The only reason I didn't was because I have a job to do
Love.. Love.. Love
