I am easily amused!
I enjoyed the characters in this book and the beach setting but the story was predictable and dragged quite a bit!
I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
A better narrator for one that guy put me to sleep I couldn't even finish the voice was annoying and dull
No and I love Nora this book and narrator just were not up to par
slow dull and boring could not even get past the first few chapters
A new narrator would be best because this one stinks
Addicted to books, especially audiobooks. Read lots and prosper!
It is Nora Roberts. The story line is pretty much from formula. I did enjoy the protagonists - they were atypical. Our hero was not macho alpha and our heroine was more running the show. But it was written with nice balance and I loved Barbie (the dog). Was it a fantastic best ever? No. Did it absolutely stink? No. It was not my absolute favorite NR, but far from my least fav. I like male narrators and so I did enjoy the reading of this book. The main story line is from the male point of view. It was a good read/listen to be entertained but not rocking ones whole world. Select with care but no fear.
Books are my escape. Some books are even more inventive with someone else to make the right decisions on tones and inflection.
I love Nora Roberts for a reason. This book is wonderful and keeps you on your toes.
He is one of my all time favorite readers. I always know when it's him that im in for a good listen.
Yes. I had to stop to get some sleep but first thing the next day it was back on till the finish.
Christal - Plano,
I don't have a clue.
I could not even get into the story. The Narrator was terrible. The worst I have listened to and I have 527entries from Audible. I don't think I even made it to the first hour. Very distracting. I love Nora and have read and listened to almost every one of her books. Please find another narrator for the Nora Roberts books.
Absolutely - I just really enjoyed the storyline and the characters.
It was a series of moments really - watching this interesting man regain his balance and re-engage in life. Just a sweet transformation.
Not necessarily - but it was one I enjoyed going back to. I definitely wanted to see what would happen next with this fun and interesting couple. Great story.
Just a really good feel good book! NR rocks again....
I disliked the character "Abra". I think Mr Daniels made her sound unbelievable as a female and Nora Roberts wrote her character sound pushy, know it all , and was into everybody,s business weather she was asked or not. Her take charge attitude would never make any man attractive to her as she treated him like a child. Do to that. I usually enjoy Ms Roberts books this one left me disappointed.
I really liked this book but almost stopped early because of the choice of narrator, while he was good, the female parts were spoken too phony for lake of a better word.
"another great story"
twists and turns
Abra's story - can't say more as it will spoil the impact
