I enjoyed the Forever Series, particularly the trilogy, and this one was my favorite! I believe it was the novelty of the story from the man's perspective. The narrator was good too.
This is Blacks story, how he feels, and reacts to el's illness, how he cares for her, and his fears. It is the same story as "Forever Black" but told from his views, plus it has more about the wedding and the pregnancy.
Close to the bottom
It was a repet of the first book, but from HIS point of view.
I enjoyed listening to the first book rather than the a rerun the second time.
While I did enjoy the book, it was basically a not so 50 Shades of Grey. The narrator wasn't bad but when he spoke like Ellorie he sounded more like a gay guy trying to be a female so that was a little weird.
The female narrator should've always narrated for the females instead of the guy doing it.
When he narrates for the men in the story he is GREAT... that voice is quite sexy. But, I cannot get over the way he sounded when he spoke for the females lol
No but it was good.
Say something about yourself!
This will be the same review for all three books.
This series had some powerful stuff going on. There was concealment on both sides leading to misunderstanding and drama galore, but it was a nice growing relationship story. Sometimes I just stared at my phone thinking the leading lady was on crack, but she had her reasons for doing what she did, and he had his reasons for being the way he was.
This isn't up there with the Crossfire series because those are just exhausting to read with all the ups and downs, but this also wasn't memorable like some of the other trilogies I have read...maybe I'm being a poor sport about this but I think too much of their story was told. The old saying of first theirs love, then theirs marriage, then there is blank in the baby carriage...it was just told so clearly that it didn't leave much to the imagination.
The series is cheap enough so go ahead and purchase it, just save your credits for more powerful listens...I wouldn't call this series fluff but it wasn't gripping either.
Tell us about yourself!
I love it when the author really get's into the male character's mind! Obviously I want to know what the beautiful heroine is thinking too but when both are balanced out the way Sandi does it you get SO MUCH MORE. In this 2nd book I knew what was going to happen (read book 1 and you'll know what I mean) and even so I was pleasantly surprised and found I got a better understanding of why things were unravelling the way they were. IT MADE ME STOP and think "woah, it may look like that but that's not it at all!" Are you confused? Then I guess you need to read this series from the beginning. It will not disappoint!
A marriage counselor who can stand to listen to people fight back and forth.
The excessive childish fighting scenes started by Ellery. She was so sweet and caring to everyone else but she was constantly antagonizing Connor. Hearing Connor's POV made the story a little more tolerable since it wasn't always Ellery's antagonizing voice.
Hearing Connor's POV made the story a little more tolerable since it is the same story as Forever Black so my review is pretty much the same.
I think the falling in love and fighting through the cancer was unique story line but Ellery was extremely frustrating, immature and had double standards. She would hide information from Connor but go bat shit crazy on him. She was excessively stubborn and constantly goading Connor to fight then would run away and expect him to always chase after her. She always need her "space" and at some point, Connor should have dumped her it was getting so ridiculous. There were times I just wanted to rip out my ear plugs.
very disappointed. It was a complete repeat of book only from his side.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Same story told from Connor's POV then with the additional Chapters on the Wedding, pregnancy and new house etc., which were all lovely and very romantic.
But I still found little bits of info missing like there was a real build up that Connor was to choose the song for their first dance at the wedding and she cried when the first notes played.... but it would have been nice to actually have given a song title for the listener to romanticise over the scene better.
Great male narration.
Worth a credit? Although you knew what was going to happen it was still very informative to listen to Connor's side of the story which has made him an even greater Hero in my eyes and YES a lovely, annoying, frustrating, beautiful and creditworthy addition to my ever growing library.
