"Karen Ziemba brings Jenny's character to life as she vacillates between guilt for her passion and acceptance of her love for Hal's brother." (AudioFile)
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
You can tell this is one of SB's earlier books, but it keeps you entertained. I enjoyed the book. This is an abridged version yet it is very well done. You don't miss too much. Jenny and Cage are very likeable characters and well developed. There is romance, mystery and a bit of drama in this story. It is a sweet story about a bad boy "Cage" who acted out his whole life trying to get his parents attention while they gave most of their attention to his brother the goody two shoe, Hal. Cage was always in love with Jenny but Hal was who she was engaged to until his death. That's when the story starts to unfold and twist and turns. It was good to see how both Cage and Jenny transform into the people they were meant to be. I found the story had some unbelievable parts yet you easily forgive them because they help develop the story. It you like a quick love story with some zest then you will find this and enjoyable listen/read. I read the book as well as listened to the audio version. I always choose the unabridged version over the abridged version, but this was a good abridged version and didn't not change the story. If you really like Jenny and Cage, you will see them again in SB's The Devil's Own.
This was painful to listen to. Maybe because the narrator made the 'heroine" as so completely clueless. It read like a bad soap opera.
