"Shalvis delivers another winner with this passionate and uplifting yarn." (Publishers Weekly)
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Another fun easy going romance by Jill Shalvis. A great beach listen. I really liked Dell and Jade's story. Playful banter and hot romance with a perfect happily ever after. As for the narration Karen White did significantly better with this book than with the first of the series. Very distinct characters and the added emotions of a good narration. All in all it was time and money well spent so I recommend it.
If your looking for a good love story this is the one for you. This is a straight forward love story, no vamps, wolves, or changlings. Just a good honest love story with alot of fun and a strong cast of supporting characters. Its hard to find a good book while waiting for my favorite authors to put out something new, but this is a good book. If you don't like love stories, then this is not the book for you.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book is similar to the first book, only not quite as quirky, more serious. I enjoyed the first book more, but this book was pretty good just not great. If the next couple of books in the series comes out on Audible, I would listen to them. Karen White was good, I thought she sounded like Meredith Grey off of Grey's Anatomy.
Yes. Continues the lives introduced in the first book.
I would have added a little more drama, romance, sex. This installment in the series is a little flat. I like a story that produces a bit of anxiety and suspense/drama.
I like Karen White with the exception of the "hitches" in her sentences/words. Could have flowed better and male voices could have been more distinct. Not a deal breaker for me, however.
Yes. We were introduced to other characters, Adam being one. Let's hear more about him.
I like almost all of the Jill Shalvis books I've listened to. Love the "Lucky Harbor" series and this is right up there with that series.
Another narrator may have kept the story going for me -this one had a 'sad and sorry' tone most of the time -no man other than a shrink would be interested in a young woman who carried that dispostion around most of the time - so I don't think it was appropriate for the story!
If you like books about post traumatic stress syndrome. Also if you are an animal lover.
It was kind of sad. Lighten up the story.
Performance was excellent.
When you first get to know the character of Jade from the previous book in the series, you get the feeling that she's a strong, take no shit kind of girl. Her character draws you in and makes you want to get to know more about her. It makes you root for her love with Dale and then when you get to finally finding out about her big secret it's a big time let down. It's like ... wait what? Nobody died. Nobody got raped. Nobody got really anything. It was a very big let down and it made me really re-evaluate Jade all the way from the very beginning and it really made me lose so much respect for her. She didn't face anything major like you first thought.
So when I lost respect for the main character of the story, and you seen she was just this spoiled brat, it just made it really hard to keep rooting for her and it ruined the story for me.
I like Jill Shalvis as an author, so yes I will probably read a few more of her books.
At first I would have said yes. The story of Jade and her big 'secret' draws you in. She was strong and self preserved and then you get the big fat let down and find out she isn't strong. She is just a spoiled little rich girl and well the story was ruined from there, at least for me.
She had no big trauma ... not a real one at least. Sucks was happened but trust me when I said, there are much much much worse things that happen every single day and people don't run off and hide for 18 months unable to get over it. I so seriously had to roll my eyes at this one.
