Shelly, only thought she had a bad childhood until she heard Marcus’s story. Then she said, “my parents sound like saints.” And she was right. But, he..Show More »r parents did come around and they did become likable. Tyler, however, was a real piece of work. What a jerk!
Although, like Last Resort, there was no OMG moments this was a great story. A story without angst, a story without someone thinking they weren’t good enough for the one they loved. I guess what made the story so good was the telling of what Cassey, Marcus, Cole and Roman went through in their youth and the kind of adults they became, loving, caring, all about family. They were all amazing.
There was a little sexual tension in this book and 2 or 3 sex scenes but no horrible swearing to speak of. Damn was used a few times, that’s all.
As to the narration: Mr. Samuelson did a worse job on this book that Last Resort. He really sounded more robotic and the women sounded a little more masculine. Five or six times the book said someone laughed and there was no laughter on the narrator’s part. Or whispering, either. As much as I like this series I might just have to read the other books, rather than listen.
