Publisher's Summary

Jace Riley and Audrey Mills had a tender and irresistibly passionate romance…until Audrey shattered his heart. Years later, she still can't stop thinking about him. They shared kisses that she'll never forget, and one brief, explosive encounter that she wishes she could. But no boy could rescue Audrey from her nightmarish home life, so she rescued herself, got through college and got into graduate school…only to find herself at the same school as Jace and his identical twin brother, Jaxon, who has his own complicated history with her.

It takes only one glimpse of Audrey's long legs and brown eyes for Jace to ache for her once more. Yet he's determined not to fall for her again. She ripped apart his heart and betrayed his brother…or so he thought. But what if Jace made a terrible mistake about Audrey? And what if he has one last chance to fix it?

    "Narrator Ruined it."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who can stand bad narration. I think the story line was decent but narrator sounded like a whiney mess when doing female characters and an old man when doing males.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eva Kantor?

    Just about anyone, but Joyce Bean, Julia Whelan and Kate Russell are a few favorites. a strong, sexy male voice, like Sebastian York's


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Story line was decent, but not consistent. I would have listened to the whole of it if I could get past narration.

    "Liked the book, narrator not so much"
    Any additional comments?

    Eva Kantor couldn't pull a male voice very well, so I wouldn't have been able to finish this book if I wasn't that invested in the characters. Audrey was an unlikable character in the first book, Broken Rules, so I was intrigued on her character redemption in this book. Jace is the softer side of Jaxon - not so alpha-ish - so I wanted to see how his character developed as well. Putting a skittish heroine with a sweet and gentle Hero actually works. I don't get that Lane did not find Audrey attractive and/or liked her more than he would a sister, maybe he did in the beginning and I will get that back story in Book 3. It's worth the my time as to "worth the credit" it doesn't apply because I borrowed the book and audio through kindeunlimited. I will not buy it now, because I don't think I will read it again though. I would have given this book 4.5 stars if there was a different male narrator.

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

    No. The narrator was like nails on a chalkboard for me


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I couldn't make it past the first couple of chapters. The prose was decent, but a bad narrator can ruin a book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator has dry mouth. You can hear her constantly smacking her tongue to the roof of her mouth. It is the most aggravating sound in the world. I couldn't make it past an hour into the story before I had to call it quits. I gave up faster on my kindle, then tried my laptop where I could play with the sound settings, and that did help. More than that, the voices are a bit grating. Everyone sounds a little hungover when she tries to put a drawl into her voice.


    Did Beautiful Broken Mess inspire you to do anything?

    Delete the book and make sure never to select anything by this narrator


    Any additional comments?

    The story seemed okay; the ages were a bit young, which might be remedied by reading further into the story

    "narrator voice suck"

    the storyline was good, but the voice killed it for me. if you are planning on listening to it i suggest you to read the book instead.

    "Dragging all the Way"

    This started very interesting in the very beginning but it took so many dragged out turns that it dragged the whole thing. I finished it because I paid for it. The performance was a screeching voice.
