This is my first review on audible but I felt it necessary to warn anyone thinking of listening to this. The female protagonist is the most annoying, selfish, childish character ever written. She seems confused the ENTIRE book and her inability to communicate left me yelling at my car stereo as I listened. She seems to be throwing a prolonged tantrum the whole book. The male lead is not much better, though after the first couple chapters I began siding with the poor emotionally stunted and communicatively challenged sod. The performance is alright but I find that Kelk writes her female leads as mostly confused, self pitying and self involved for the majority of the book and then evolving into outright selfishness in the finale, all the while expecting the guy they've been stringing along to be there for them while they "figure themselves out". I'm all about being your own person but I've never understood the notion of a.) not being able to do that in a healthy relationship or b.) doing that at the expense of your significant other's feelings. You're perfectly capable of finding yourself without making someone wait for you to do so.
I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
I found this book OK. I got really annoyed with the characters because a lot of the issue was just a misunderstanding! If they had communicated properly t etc etc. I just get frustrated when this happens in stories.
Overall it did keep my interest and I did want to find out what happened.
I returned this because I couldn't get past the switching back and forth narration. They should had the Avita do all female roles and Ben do all male. Weird set up.
the set up of chapters
I really liked hearing the story from Adam's side. The male perspective was intriguing and made me step outside my normal heroine view. It was almost like a thriller waiting to see what would happen next. Enjoyable listen.
really enjoyed this and it was narrated well.
my favourite character was probably Daniel haha. he was full of sass.
