    Story
    "A Donut of a Romance"

    Like having a donut instead of whole grain toast for breakfast, sometimes it's fun listening to a light hearted (but not mind-numbing) romantic drama. Yes, some things were obvious from the beginning and the end was not a huge surprise. However the island setting, humor, and a variety of supporting characters including a lovable dog made "Meant to Be" an enjoyable escape from reality.

    "Pretty good story line - but predictable"
    Where does Meant to Be rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I had just finished a very sad book....characters dying, prison sentences for an 18 year old etc....this book is a breath of fresh air. I needed something fun and lighthearted.

    Story
    "Narrator ruined this book"
    Would you try another book from Terri Osburn and/or Amy Rubinate?

    Terri Osburn - yes, if it was narrated by someone else.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I actually thought it was Siri from the iPhone at first... and then assumed it was a computer program. I don't even know how the narrator gets her voice to sound so monotone and computer-like! I couldn't get past it - the only reason I was able to finish the book is because I really liked the story. From now on, I'll ALWAYS play the audio sample before I purchase.

    Story
    "SKIP THIS ONE IF PROFANITY IS AN ISSUE FOR YOU"
    What did you like best about Meant to Be? What did you like least?

    This was really a fantastic story with a lot of depth. The characters were well developed, however, the language was excessive and unnecessary.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The range of characters. A lot of different personalities to identify with.


    Which character – as performed by Amy Rubinate – was your favorite?

    Joe and Sid. Joe was so quiet that he came off as kind of mysterious. Sid has the mouth of a truck driver but you can tell there's a good person underneath all the tough talk that's dying to get out. Can't wait to follow her story in the next book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    I almost didn't order the second book because of the excessive language. It reminded me of being on the playground and trying to impress your friends with who had the foulest mouth.

    For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.

    "Horrible narrator"

    The narrartor was so bad I couldn't even finished this book. I got 2 1/2 hours in and then wanted to shove an ice pick in my ears just so I didn't have to listen to her anymore. She was flat and her voice just got on my nerves.
