What the Critics Say

"This is a major 'feel good' book about two people rebounding from hard knocks without bitterness. It also comes with emotionally mature characters, palpable love and caring among family and friends, an adorable child and suspense." (Romantic Times)

    "A NICE SENSITIVE (AND HOT) LISTEN"

    Definitely not quite as spicy as the first book - this one was more character driven with no sub plots or unanswered questions - just a steadily paced hot romance spanning well over a year between two very likeable people, and their families and friends with just one little hiccup. There are some bad memories, sexy hot scenes, a b*tch and dislikable in-laws that must be overcome before the couple can finally move on.

    It also gives us a chance to catch up on the characters we grew to love from book 1 (if you've read it) and due to this there was a scene of m/m action then the pair were joined by their female partner.

    Worth a credit? Yes, and I'm also looking forward to the next sibling's story.

    "WOW....Love this book!!"

    A woman who chose an abusive man but saved herself and her child. Now she does not trust herself when she is attracted to a man who rides a Harley and has tattoos. Can not wait for Cooper's book.

    "Enjoyable"

    I loved Laid Bare and was really looking forward to the brother's story. While this book flowed well and kept me interested it wasn't as spicy as I was expecting. I'm not saying the writing was bad or the premise of the book sucked but I wasn't pulled into the story like I was with Erin's story. I definitely will be listening to the other sibling's book when available but I hope to have some spice in their stories.

    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.

    "Pretty Good"

    It's not in any way as good as the first book in this seires. If you like a regular love story then you'll enjoy this one. It has the characters from the first book but this one is Brody's story. It is nice and has issues for the characters to deal with and some mild sexual situations. All in all I'd rather get this one on sale. For those of you that like the regular love stories with modern day family problems (maybe extreme family problems) then you'll enjoy this one. I hope Adrian's story is more like the first book.This book is too tame for my taste, but it is a "nice" book.

    "Good Done"

    Brody Brown is a tattooed shop owner alpha male who raised his brother and sister when their parents died, who is use to taking care of everyone. Elise, a former ballerina, and now owner of dance studio, moves in across the street from Brody, hoping to establish a quiet life for her and her young daughter Rennie. She's rebuilding her life after a violent relationship with Rennie's father and hoping to escape her former in-laws who seem bent on making her life a living hell. When Brody is hit by a hit by a hit and run drunk driver Elise comes to his aid the two becomes friends and then lovers. This is book two of the Brown series and this maybe my favorite one Brody Brown is hot and very caring this book was well written "read" as I listened to it. Elise is an independent, dedicated single mother who is determined to leave her past behind and create a happy, safe home for herself and her young daughter. Although she has been through hell and back, Elise is strong and seeks no pity from her friends. Young and sexy she discovers that wounds from the past have not permanently scarred her spirit or her sensual nature. I loved Elise and her family her parents were loving and only wanted her to be happy. Raven who had an friends with benefits relationship with Brody needed to be slapped she didn't want him when she had him and now that he is serious with someone else she wants him. I also loved the fact the Browns are a close knit family and they have loving friends who are there for each other. This is a well written series and I can't wait to read about the rest of this crew. The also showed the progress of Erin, Todd and Ben and I am happy for them. I a can't wait to learn more about the Brown's.

    "Too racey for me!"
    What would have made Coming Undone better?

    I really enjoy romance stories, but this one was very illicit for me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Dane again?

    I don't know, if all her books are this level, probably not.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Romance can be very appealing especially if it is done with care not to make the characters filthy.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Coming Undone?

    The scenes may not be the problem, it was the language and wording in the tender moments that ruined it for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Not really, any author has the right to write at a level they want to, but a reader has a choice to not read the material too.

    "Brody's Book Rocks!"

    I love this story and feeling like Brody gets his due....I love the way Lauren Dane has grown as an author, these are not just silly love stories. They have substance and are also sexy. Those who love the Chase brothers more I beg to differ....these books are much more than they are. I love the character and story continuation, I love the dialogue, you want to know these people. They are what family is all about. Thanks Lauren Dane for ramping it up to the next level! Can't wait for all the books (for the ereader and audible! - love them both!

    "I LOVE This Hot & Sexy Series-PLEASE Offer More!"
    What made the experience of listening to Coming Undone the most enjoyable?

    The attraction and steamy evolution of Brody and Elise's relationship.It was also great in that it included the entire Brown family and I cannot wait for the next book. I just pre-ordered it!


    What other book might you compare Coming Undone to and why?

    Laid Bare (the 1st in the Series) - ANYTHING by Lauren Dane - She is fantastic!


    What about Lucy Rivers’s performance did you like?

    The narration was moderate. Rivers' portrayal of the men again is lacking and the women sounded similar.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    A great plot along with FANTASTIC sex scenes.

    NOTE: Strong Language and graphic sexual descriptions.

    "It was good enough!"

    The first book was about discovering who you are, and this book is much of the same, without the ménage.

    This is about a couple who have had hard lives in their own respects and overcome all obstacles in their paths....they are the givers to their family, not the takers, so what happens when two givers attempt to get together?

    The characters were great, the steamy scenes were great, and it was a nice listen without too much drama.

    Good book :-)
