Probably the characters. They are very well written and easy to imagine.
Kaden was my favorite character. Someone so sweet and innocent yet so badly damaged just tugs at my heart.
needs. some. improvement.
I would say that would be a tie between the two main characters, Kaden and Logan. They were both very well written and each had their own story to tell.
If your a fan of gay romance novels, you can't go wrong with this one.
This book started out well, if you took it with a grain of salt at some areas and allowed the author to use his/her artistic license, then you can listen to it happily. you'll find yourself saying 'awww', more than just once.
The story itself wasn't bad. The characters, that is. BUT, the least interesting was the mention of 'the past, the past', and then the flashbacks. The absolute, ABSOLUTE least interesting was the last hour of it. If I had turned that off after that chapter, this book would have been great.
This book is very pleasant to listen to. I did hate the fact that the character was referred to as 'the teen', 'the boy', 'little one', etc. etc. and then he'd act like an infant at times, although he was 19. that part kinda creeped me out. but the main characters coming closer was nice. although, some parts, some character reactions, were a bit unrealistic and over the top. if it was toned down a bit, maybe it'd be a bit better. otherwise, I did like the story after it picked up. I DO recommend it, it was a good listen, but skip the last hour! :-p and allow yourself to let a few things slide...
I am an avid audio book listener. I have over 340 in my library and re-listen to them until I know my favorites by heart.
The narrator was very good. From the volume of his voice to the enunciation of the dialog he was wonderful.
The theme of perseverance was very nice.
The moment the little girl died was heartbreaking.
Slow to build, as a good love story should be. The story skirts the boundaries of the believable, but that's alright. Who reads romance for realism? It's less focused on physical intimacy than many other audible titles of this genre, and much more focused on the emotional quality of a building love story, which I appreciated. All in all a gentle and articulate romance which is worth the download. Would purchase more titles by this author if they were available, and would reccommend.
It was a good book! I found it hard to listen for me, it had depressing moments. The ending was good. It was worth listening to.
The main character, Kaden, remains fearful and distrustful of Logan for too long.
The most interesting part was Kaden's background story.
Awkward, long pauses when reading character's quotes followed by "...he said." A few mispronunciations of words. Announces title of book before every chapter, which was annoying, but there's no announcement of any kind for chapter 11, not even the chapter number.
No, the story ends well enough.
ONe of the worst books i've ever read (or listened to. Over simplistic and juvenile depiction of a shattered, abused soul. Feels as though the author has no insight into people at all, except what she may have deduced from watching daytime television. No insight into the male psyche at all. Or the gay male as well. It's actually insulting. She trivializes the people she attempted to created. It was painful to listen to, predictable beyond belief, and a complete waste of time.
Anger, disappointment, sheer disbelief
