Publisher's Summary

The last thing Sid remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, he was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, he was saved - pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. Soon they will be bound by tantalizing secrets, which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of passion and danger.

    Story
    "Story was great, narrator not so much"
    Would you listen to Water Bound again? Why?

    Yes because I love the series and listening is my only option but I really don't like the narrator or the sound quality.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Disregarding the main characters (they are always chosen but I do love Rikki) I have to say I have always loved Inez.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Brazil’s performances?

    No, not only does she sound as though she is readibg a child's storybook half the time, but worse she completely screws up character names. Its Stavros, not Stravos among others.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really like the fact that the author took a chance on writing a main character who is on the Autism spectrum.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio gets really weird when there is telepathic communication. I guess they were going for atmosphere but it really messed with me and I wish I had been warned.

    "Awesome!"
    What did you love best about Water Bound?

    I liked the mystery. The people and conversations are interesting. I will read the next book.


    What other book might you compare Water Bound to and why?

    This book is pretty unique. I am not sure what to compare it to.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Brazil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was really caught up in the mystery.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "oh, puleeze!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The overall plot was actually intriguing and the first hour or so of the book was an enjoyable set-up of an interesting and flawed (but likeable) female character. However, after the entrance of the male lead in the story, it quickly began to veer in an unbelievable and improbable direction. After repeatedly thinking "oh, puleeze!" and "no she didn't!", I knew that this story was not for me. Judging from the first couple of hours of reading, this book is better suited for those who enjoy the Harlequin romance genre.

    Any additional comments?

    The characters grabbed a hold of my heart and didn't let go. I already owned the paperback so I knew I loved this book. There are some stories worth re-reading and this is one of them. True love concurring what would seem to be insurmountable obstacles and making the two individuals whole in a natural progession of events and feelings. Since I work on a computer all day, my eyes get blurry long before I want to put some books down. With Audible, I can "read" as long as I want!

    Story
    "MAGICAL ROMANCE"

    Christine Feehan is new author for me as well as Angela Brazil as narrator...and this first book was pretty good for a first. I was surprised that it had a magical element behind it...but I felt it made it even better!

    The characters I thought were great! Riki isn't your average girl in so many ways, and she never ceases to surprise you. Despite her condition, she is very strong willed, brave, and courageous when she needs to be. Sid (aka Lev or Levi) on the other hand, I admit made me nervous, but he proves himself in here time and time again despite who he was before Riki.

    There are moments when you aren't sure where things are headed...but the love and sparks (literally) keep you going in the story. The magic that Riki and Lev share is great, and the many intimate moments are very well done.

    The only thing that I didn't care for was the amount of repetition. I found Christine Feehan said a lot of things over and over...granted to get the message across...but it got to the point where it was annoying.

    Overall though...good story...good narration...good romance! Not a great...but definitely good and worth a listen! Would give it 3 1/2 if I could. :)

    "Great Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Water Bound the most enjoyable?

    It was clear and easy to listen to


    What other book might you compare Water Bound to and why?

    All Christine Feehan books are great and unique so i cant really compare it to anything


    What about Angela Brazil’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was consistent and the accents she used did not become annoying like most over the duration of the book


    If you could take any character from Water Bound out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I don't think i'd want to go to dinner with these characters maybe diving because its such a part of their lives


    Any additional comments?

    Great book is defiantly part of a series but can still be enjoyed as a stand alone

    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Angela Brazil?

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    Story
    "A Great Start to a New Series"

    Let me start by saying the posted synopsis for this book is incorrect. Rikki is the one who rescues Lev. ( no Sid in this book) Rikki is an undiagnosed highly functional autistic with a magical ability. The interaction between Lev and Rikki is one of the most interesting I have read about in quite some time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, my interest never wavered and I would recommend it.
