When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
This story was not at all what I thought it would be from reading the expert. I thought it would be a normal romance but instead it was so much more, It's such a magical story with romance and full of twists. Lauren Davis is a 21 year old college senior, a typical girl but not so much. Lauren has a gift about people, especially bad people, an intuition of sorts. She knows when she gets certain feelings, it lets her know if she can be around them or not. When Lauren meets Max Meyer she feels as if she has to be close to him at all times. She feels the electricity between them. I'm sorry but that's about as much detail as I want to give away. This is a story that you really must purchase for yourself to discover where this story takes you. I really must say that it takes you on some bumpy rollercoaster rides. I also want to mention the cover, its absolutely beautiful and it caught my attention and helped draw me in to want to listen to this story.
Author Nancy Straight blew me away with Blood Debt, another story she wrote and I absolutely loved the series and Blood Debt is the first story in the Touched series. I really don't understand why a publisher hasn't grabbed her up yet because she creates such wonderful, realistic stories. I don't know, I guess there's perks to being self published because you don't have someone standing over you telling you that your on a deadline. Anyway, it's their loss because her writing is brilliant. Nancy's stories, especially Meeting Destiny is so realistic. The characters are very real, likeable, and heart wrenching at times. There's so many twists and turns. I'm impressed with her story and I loved the rest of the Destiny series.
Narrator Laurel Schroeder did a fabulous job narrating the story. She kept me glued to the story and her performance is great. She did an excellent job distinguishing each characters accents, letting you know the character who was speaking. She is a very talented woman with her talent of performing with voices and such. I highly recommend this audio and others written by Nancy Straight and other audios narrated by Laurel Schroeder. A definite 5 star rating for this story but if you think this story was good, wait because they get even better.
I would listen to Meeting Destiny again. The story is a magical romance that I had actually read previously. Listing to it brought the story into a whole new light.
I absolutely love Lauren. She's a strong female character who doesn't let people walk all over her. Her relationship with Max is great.
I love the scene when Lauren protects the young boy in the restaurant. She isn't aware of what all has happened, but puts his safety above her own.
eBooks / audiobooks
YES! Audio versions are always better than reading version. Audio breaths life into a book!
Honestly, When Phil was shot in the car, I cried with Lauren.
I enjoy listening to different voices in books. Narrators add excitement, accents & proper pronunciations for us.
Not extreme reaction. I did enjoy the book very much!
The author caught my interest & had me glued to my seat through out the book. There were parts when I laughed. There were pars that made me cry. Mostly I would say, Lauren is having a really bad life! I liked the voice that Lauren could speak to in her mind, Something out there surely is trying to end her demise! All in all... 5 stars!
