Oh this was so good! Vivi has been in love with David since she was 13 years old but he has always seen her like another little sister. Years go by, t..Show More »he friendship grows stronger and her feelings for David deepen. This is a mature story of true love. It was an interesting and powerful story that felt real. It takes you trough so many emotions, from first crush, disappointment, jealousy, passion, heartbreak and finally an amazing happily ever after. The narration was excellent as well. Ms. Rudd made different voices for each character and added emotion and passion to the story. I highly recommend it.
I fell in love with the characters on ther first St. James Book! Cat is one of my favorite characters. She is a gorgeous model and has gone through a ..Show More »lot since her mom died. Having a crazy ex-boyfriend to boot doesn't help, specially after what happened on the first book.
Hank is a great guy and so dedicated to his mom and sisters. Cat and him have so much quemistry! He is smart to thread with caution after Cat blew him off the previous year by not calling him back.
Cat gets some major news that will affect the rest of her life and instead of opening up for support, she clams up and tries to keep her distance from Hank. Telling him she doesn't want a relationship.
The narrator did a great job. Such a great listen that is hard to put down!
I'm looking forward to the next book. Jackson has been so troubled throughout this book! Hopefully he will find the girl of his dreams that will treat him right.
Tempted many times to STOP...as the situations and what constitutes conflict were so NOT realistic. Social opinion on addiction recovery was set back ..Show More »at least 50 years, and the part of Our Hero struggling with an alcohol problem seems to have been written by an alcoholic in denial: " Doc says that someday I will be able to enjoy an occasional drink" said no addiction therapist EVER. Still, I read on. One reason was the possibility of a really good twist to bring it all together: the characters were SO picky and easy to call anything a real problem, I wondered what would happen that would appease these people and make it OK for boy meets girl to call it happily ever after. But instead of a twist to make them ponder deeply and realize love trumps all, they just copped and said, "OK." It seems the author got tired of making nothing into something and put them together. Another reason I stuck with it was the unbelievable character of Jackson. This guy was like your best gay guy friend turning heterosexual! He not only talked about feelings and relationships, he built swingsets and fixed things AND had sex with females, but not excessively. I was willing to go to impossible land with Jackson! *wink* OK it was a fun story in places.
