I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Dual narrative, interesting twist but definitely had a dark vibe to it.
Dozer the dog!
Both equal however not my favorites. Their voices seem a bit old for these characters in this book.
Unfortunately, this book has a similar theme to many other books out right now. sudden reformed womanizer meets tortured abused broken heroine...
Will do anything for books!
How do those all work together? Don't know but they do! This is a great one, a stand alone which I don't always like simply because I really like to delve into the characters and know them but I feel like we did that in this book. We get an intimate look into the lives of both and really begin to love them. I really don't have anything negative to say, the narration was good, but not great. Did not distract from the story at all. Very good. The story moves pretty fast. I cried several times throughout and finished in one go. This would be a difficult one to put down so I'd say don't start right before bed :) Nice sexy scenes, nothing kinky in this one, the story line is what is dark and sad not the romance.
I don't understand how you can get a book published when the so-called "hero" is a complete douche - especially a romance. The character of Jordan completely ruined this book for me. I don't expect the characters of any novel to be perfect. In fact, the less perfect the better. But there has to be some kind of redeeming qualities to them. I couldn't find that in Jordan. Granted, I didn't complete the book either, but every time the point of view turned to Jordan I found myself hating everything about him. Even his inner monologue was horrible. He was constantly talking about his cock and how wet he could get it. He was disgusting. Usually when there is a womanizer involved, the inner monologue shows something redeemable about the character. This inner monologue only made me hate his more. Just because he loves his dog and his father doesn't mean he's a good person.
Seriously, I hated this book and plan to return it...the first time I've ever done that with Audible.
Don't waste your credit. Stay away.
This book is predictable and too much angst. It's an OK listen but nothing special. I am not sure if it's worth a credit.
