Since this consists of two books and two different narrators, this isn't an easy review to write. These books are not big on action or angst, so they..Show More »'re great for someone who wants fluffy romance. It's well-written on a technical standpoint, but I felt let down by how easily the issues were resolved. Despite personal tastes in novels, I wish life could be that easy.
In the first book, I thought there should have been more conflict with the parents and Jacob's aunt. I enjoyed it up until they the aunt came into the picture, and then it was just too easy. On the other hand, some people really prefer that.
The production quality was good, but it took me a long time to adapt to Jason P. Hilton, because his voice is deep and husky. I know a lot of people will love that, but it doesn't fit the characters on the cover. There were times when I couldn't tell who was talking.
In the second book, I liked the opening. It held my attention right up until the big secret is revealed... and then it was too easy again. Just like in the first book, Aria Grace introduces characters in this one who can take the story to the next level (like Jessica) and then it just doesn't happen.
I really enjoyed Michael Ferraiuolo's performance. I felt like his voice fit the characters, I could tell the characters apart, and the pacing was good.
Overall, it wasn't bad at all. In fact, it is very different from most books, because there is very little conflict. I recommend this to people who want a short, angst-free romance. The chemistry was well-done and plenty believable.
I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not quite sure how I felt about this book. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. It was just OK. But the ending is a HFN that gives an ..Show More »intriguing teaser for the next book. The narrator really made this book enjoyable for me. He really gave life to a story that had a few too many eye rolls for me to really rave about it. The basic story is Jamie gets screwed over (and not in a good way) when he was 18 and lost everything. So trust issues are a given. He meet Reed, likes him but pushes him away and the angst commences. I had to suspend disbelief regarding some of the situations and reaction of the MCs; such as Jamie getting assaulted and it is blow off as just part of his job. I don't think so. Maybe it is addressed in the next book.
I read this book probably 10 times before getting a chance to hear the superb narration and cannot say how much it adds to the now familiar story. ..Show More »> Kyle's story is painful to read but worth the chance you take.
Jonathan ' s struggle for normality when trying to manage an overwhelming amount of issues is beautiful to see. Having OCD myself it is nice that Aria has treated it with gentle understanding. Finding the courage to let someone into our lives is never an easy thing. That process is made 10 times harder when your own brain seems hell bent on keeping everyone at arms length.
This story is beautiful and beautifully told Kudos Aria I can tell how much love and care you spent on bringing it to us and your efforts are astounding! Thanks so much.
