If you are looking for a romance book that has great sex scenes and dramatic tension between the main character and his or her love interest, then this is not the book for you. This book is about a single mother that is willing to do anything to find a cure for her sick dying son. I found this book to be really good. It is well written, and somewhat exciting. I will admit it had me crying throughout half of the book, but it was well worth it. I will be listening to this book again.
I loved this book. It made me both laugh and cry. I didn't want to turn my IPOD off. The author really played with your emotions. My heart ached for the mom as she had to face loosing her son to a horrible disease. The sacrifices she made and the never failing faith she always showed her son, made an awesome read. Plus I felt the narrator did a great job as well. I'll listen to this one again.
Susan Mallery has become one of my favorite authors and Theresa Plummer is by far my favorite narrorator! Her narrorating is what got me interested in Susan after listening to Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. This book has a great plot and hot moments. The hot moments aren't over the top. I like steamy moments as much as the next girl but some books can just be gross. This book has just the right mix of steam and plot.
Initially, I wasn't sure about this story. Seemed okay reading the synopsis, but this actually a good story. The reader was excellent with the sound and emotion behind her voices. The story was fun, romantic, and emotional (the scene with the child got me a little teary-eyed). I've listened to this story twice so far. It's not heavy reading (listening), there are no BIG cases to solve or murders committed. It's an enjoyable love story with a heart!
Parts of the story I liked but parts were too stupid for words. It felt like the writer got tired of the story and tried to wrap it up too quick. Good weekend fluf. Weak characters.
I am lucky to be able to listen to books as I work. This one, by far, made the day go by faster!
The commitment of mother to child is truly what miracles are made of. Worth the credit.
