Emily, what took you so long to figure things out! OK, I don't usually have such strong feelings about characters in a story. That's the point, this book was so good I have the second one now. So, this review will be short as I can't wait to find out what happens. Great job Mary Kowal. This is the first time listening to your narration and you are good girl! If you haven't already you need to get this one.
I would recommend the book for those who liked Fifty Shades of Grey. The stories follow the same type of storyline. The narrator was bad at voices and I wanted to cringe when she did some of them.
The story was engaging and the twist was that the main character had a boyfriend. Getting out of that predicament was the twist or the interesting part of the plot.
This was not the best performance but, I love the book. I actually purchased the book a couple years ago. I was curious if the book would translate the same through audiobook.
I really love the conflict of the story. I don't love that the Emily was still so indecisive. I think there is a great deal of truth in the emotional conflict we experience.
Little voice inflections here and there, but I think it reads much better through an actual book. I have listened to audiobooks that put you right in the thick of the moment. This narrator didnt do it for me.
The Ulitmate Emotional Tug of War
Very freaking awesome
The want of love that was shown the the many ways.
Great voice usage.
Lust or love...make a choice. One may became both.
Wish there was more about the relationship between Gavin and Emily. Another book please lol,
This story was romantic and it took Emily long enough to see the light, gosh we all need a Gavin. Narration of the guys was poor. Looking forward to the next instalment in Pulse.
I only finished the book because i already bought it nearly 1 year ago together with the 2nd book.
The story started interesting but continued predictable und the weak heroine made me suffer all the way long.
Emily either throws up or has tears in the eyes.
Too many not hot but clinical sex scenes, i would have prefered e deeper developement of the story.
Could have been a good story - pity.
This was her first for me.
I love you------I'm in love with you
This was a surprise , this was a great story. I was wonderful to see M open her eyes and her heart to the right person. If you listen to this one you have to listen to her second one to see how it all ends.
I had to force myself to stick to this book because at times the narrator had just some horrible voices for the characters. Truly Bad. Then I was able to overlook the horrible accents & voices because the story was really good. It was a bit slow moving at first but then I just couldn't get enough. The author does a great job of keeping you on your toes with the love triangle. Right til the very end your heart will race wondering who will Emily chose, Gavin or Dillon.
The synopsis of this book is deceiving. Here's what it's really about: sexual abuse, mental abuse, really poor personal choices, poor communication skill. Pretty much being the biggest doormat EVER! I hated the first 5 chapters, but I continued to listen, waiting for the story line promised. Huge disappointment! And then you are gonna just end the book hoping I'll buy the next one. Keep hoping, I can't believe this rubbish was published. White Trash Beautiful was better than this book and that one was seriously depressing. Don't waste you time or money on this one.
Troubled. Lustful. Intriguing.
Gavin showing what a true gentleman is all about and not being afraid to go out on a limb for the girl he wanted.
I haven't heard Mary previously but she did well playing believable female and male characters. I wouldn't mind hearing her read again.
When Gavin stood up to his long time for the sake of his love? There were other moments that made me angry that Emily lacked self confidence and self worth.
