I downloaded this book because it had great reviews and the narrator was highly rated, however, I didn't like it. Honestly the story was too predicta..Show More »ble and the narrator was just okay. If I had it to do over I wouldn't use a credit on this one. I won't be listening to the rest of the series.
Feeling emotionally wrung out and not in a good way!
Wow what a disappointment! I've never wanted to reach through a book and bitch slap someone as much as I wanted to with Lanie. Waaaaaay too much drama..Show More ».... like way too much. So many times I wanted to stop listening because I was so irritated, but kept listening hoping it would get better as I really did want to see where there relationship went. Not worth it. I feel like I need counseling after listening to this book. I DO NOT recommend starting this series, and will not be reading the last book. Not to mention the narrator does a horrrrrrrible male voice. Think Shmeagle on Lord of the Rings. I will not be reading any other books by this author.
Now I'll be totally honest, at the start of this listen I really didn't think I was going to like it as I had such fond memories of Hudson and Alayna ..Show More »by the end of their trilogy and this starts off totally different. It portrays Hudson as a manipulative, sadistic, cold-hearted, nasty bastard who, along with his Queen of Bitches friend Celia, planned the terrible hurtful scam against the vulnerable unknowing and innocent Alanya.
It doesn't repeat the story we've already heard, in touches on some scenes, but it's told from Hudson's POV and flashes back and forth in time giving the reasons and history behind why they did what they did and the devastating and heartbreaking consequences that followed after their twisted, bitter and damaged minds fixed onto Alayna for their next 'emotional experiment'. But, as the story unfolds, it explains just why they are both so emotionally broken and why they are playing with other people's lives and fills in the gaps from the other side of the story.
It's raw, powerful, gritty, terrible, heartbreaking, romantic, tender and beautiful and answers so many questions and his Proposal and the Epilogue.... well if you've loved their story, that'll have you in tears.
Worth a credit? IMHO, a MUST for any Fixed fan but be please be prepared to hate Hudson for most of the book and wait for his climactic downfall when he realises he's lost the love of his life but then you can rejoice when he lovingly puts his heart and soul into winning her back. It's so well written, emotional, tragic and bitter but it's also a well narrated story about character growth, healing, understanding, forgiveness and the unconditional power of a beautiful love. So, worth the credit..... HELL YEAH. But must be listened to after their moving trilogy.
