    Story
    "PHEW WHAT A GREAT BOOK - I'M EMOTIONALLY EXHAUSTED"

    Firstly, be warned you could lose friends (and sleep) over this listen - it's the sort of book that just absolutely sucks you in and you find yourself growling and snarling at anybody who even attempts to talk to you which would make you have to press the 'pause' button.

    This well written passionate love story played on my emotions like no other book I've listened to has - there was hope, happiness, sadness, anger, tension, rage, frustration and ..... finally utter speechless disbelief. It flips backwards and forwards from present day back through a 6 year emotional roller-coaster relationship between two people who become friends and then lovers but both sadly fail to find themselves in the right place at the right time for a lasting relationship. There are lots of strong secondary characters who become involved in some way through this story and they either add or hinder the lovers.

    Although you may be fooled into thinking this is YA - that is not the case - there is passion and sex scenes - but they are entwined amongst the backdrop of their emotions for one another.

    Worth a credit? I don't know know good this has been for my blood pressure but it's a definite YES if your a romance lover please don't miss this listen - but be warned - have some tissues ready.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    Story
    "Whew!!!"

    Talk about an emotional whirlwind. This one had my emotions in an uproar. At times I just wanted to knock Lexi in the head with a bat. Lexi has a relationship with Jack for years that is not a healthy one. We are taken from the present to the past and back to the present. Jack has never chosen Lexi but he won’t let her go. Lexi destroys every relationship she has because she can’t let go of Jack. Jack wants Lexi to meet the woman he intends to propose to and convince her that he is ready to commit. Of course Jack starts his same old pattern again and he wants both women. Will Lexi finally let him go or will Jack finally be the man he should be and give Lexi the love she deserves?

    Is this one worth a credit? Yes, because I love not knowing which way the story is going. There’s allot of things going on and the story isn’t predictable. I will say I do hope there is another book.

    "WOW!"
    Would you listen to Avoiding Commitment again? Why?

    yes, it brought me back to when I was a teenager and first feel in love.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The true honesty of the situation she kept finding herself in.


    Any additional comments?

    The was a truly emotional makes you think kind of book. Lets you understand better what love at first sight can make you think, feel, and even sometimes do. Deals with feelings I am sure a lot of ppl have or will face in their lifetime.

    This book could be true. Some men really think that they can treat women like this. A smile a kiss a little love making and women will be in wrapped around there little finger.

    "couldn't finish it"

    I hated the characters and after listening to over 150 audible romance books some I've struggled to finish but this was so frustrating I stopped. I read the reviews for the following books but didn't feel compelled to go on.

    Story
    "Intense!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character in this story was Chyna. Love her loyalty to her best friend Lexi. Despite all the idiotic, stupid things that Lexi does with Jack, Chyna is right there with her to pick up the broken pieces.


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

    This book totally pissed me off, in a good way. Wow, talk about an intense relationship. Geez, I was exhausted by the time I was done with this book. Let's just say that I overused plenty of expletives while reading this book. My god...I really hate Jack! Stupid moron! But Lexi, well she lets him walk all over her! Poor thing, the things people do for love. Overall, this was a very enjoyable book even though it did send my blood pressure thru the roof!

    Story
    "Reality Check And Loving It"
    What did you love best about Avoiding Commitment?

    I absolutely love this book. Spoiler alert, it doesn't end with your typical love conquers all scenario.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Avoiding Commitment?

    Everything was memorable. I read some of the reviews first which some were brutal. Me being the cynic that I am caused me to want to listen to the story myself to draw my own conclusion. I was actually capable of relating to this story in more ways than I can count. I absolutely loved this story. Not certain on if I'll like the 3 sequels that follow but this story was great.


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

    I have not listened to Mr. Abbey before but his voice was captivating. I'm not really certain on what it is (Lie) but I love the sound of a mans voice reading to me even if the lead character is a woman. Especially if the voice has a very masculine tone.


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

    I laughed mostly plus I had a lot of OMG's, you go girl and shut the front door moments in the mix


    Any additional comments?

    If you're not always looking for the damsel in distress and gets rescued story then take a listen and draw your on conclusion.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Maybe it was going back in time every other chapter. I am not 100% sure excatly what it was but I could not get into this story or care for the characters.

    Would you listen to Avoiding Commitment again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to this series again, and again. It's really is a crazy story.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is truly an addictive book. Sometimes you want to just shake Lexi hard, but really it is the truth, lust can make you think your in love and it can blind you. The characters are great, and a friend like Chyna everyone needs!

    "What can I say?"

    It surely is impossible for one woman to be that stupid. I think this is an insult to any woman - let alone an intelligent woman to believe this dragged out tale of misery.
