*was gifted a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review*
I liked the story of Laney and Jax. The growing budding relationship of their high school selves. The moment they have to part ways, the hard choices made. Then to have them thrust back together in the oddest of circumstances. It was a great mix of laughs, intensity and love.
For me the story was rushed at times. Then sometimes it felt a little muted. Like something was missing.
As for the audiobook itself, it was good but the narrator went too fast. It's like he was on a time crunch or something. There was only a hesitation between chapters and POV changes, so a couple of times I had to stop and go back to figure out what I missed.
Jax is all jock turned into sexy detective. He lost his love before it could really take flight. He has struggled holding Laney on a pedestal for years.
Laney is the quiet little wallflower Who has been asked to help Jack's stay on the field. She hides who she is from everyone so that she isn't hurt anymore. She's forced to go even further into hiding due to circumstances beyond her control.
These two love birds are thrown back into each other's lives at a time when they need each other the most. Obstacle after obstacle They find their way through in order to see if the love they feel is everlasting.
This is a great HEA that is great for anyone who truly loves a mild romance story. There was a lot of predictability and for that I leave this one with three hearts. The narrator Did a great job on the characters and the reading.
Lainie and Jax dated briefly in high school. After a situation at home Laine had to leave and never came back. They reconnect 10 years later and Lainie's pay comes back to haunt her. Jax and Laine are on the run now as they try to outsmart the killer. The story was good but I felt it was a little too rushed. I
would have liked the author to slow it down so I could feel more of a connection. Jax and Lainie have been separated for 10 years and I wanted more one on one time of them getting reconnected. I felt they had a lot to discuss and we only scratched the surface when they finally have their sit down. The author goes from past to present which I liked as well. Gives you a good backstory. Overall the book was good and I was able to listen in one sitting. The narrator did a good job capturing the emotions.
I would. The story for the most part is enjoyable, even if there were times when it was repetitive. The narrator's voice held your attention and you wanted to keep listening.
Yes. While it did get repetitive, overall the story is good.
The deep timbre of his voice holds you captive and you want to keep listening to his melodic voice.
Not really. Although there were times when I felt anxious when she had been found.
Invisible by L.A. Remenicky is a story about Elaine, who is hiding from someone, and Jax, who has loved her for 10 years...even after she disappeared. Fate stepped back in and brought these two together, but something else lurks out there too. A killer has been set free and in hunting her. Can Jax save her? Will Elaine disappear out of his life again?
This is an audiobook review. So Let me break the book down into the two parts. First the story. 3.5 stars. There were parts of the story I think were slightly rushed. On top of that, the story was written from dual POV, but after getting one, you got the exact same scene from the other perspective. While at times that could be a good thing, too much of it becomes repetitive and it felt as if parts of the story were repeating again...not necessarily in a good way. That said, the story was enjoyable and I really liked how the characters interacted with each other. Jax wants to save the world, and Elaine definitely needs saving.
Next is narration. Can I just start out this part of the review by saying I love Trevor Thompson's voice? It's deep and sinfully sexy. 4.5 stars. I think his voice kept me pulled into the story and kept it interesting. I loved the way he read the book and his intonation was great. Trust me, you will love listening to his voice and will be looking for him elsewhere.
Overall: 4 Stars. Overall the story was enjoyable and the narrator was a perfect choice. I recommend that you pick up this audio book today.
