I do honestly like the book. But it's so SNL that I just don't know if I want to keep listening to it. I thought I would love all of the snarky humor. But honestly it just seems too much.

I'm going to repeat what I said in my review of book 1. This is an excellent story but I'm really glad I have the romance package to be able to have all three parts at once. I'm not sure how I would feel if I had to have 3 credits to listen to it though.

Never Never, a novella series. Book one of three. Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of 14. Complete strangers since this morning. He'll do anything to remember. She'll do anything to forget. This novella is recommended for people age 16+ due to mild language and sexual content.

This is honestly a great listen. BUT it's not a just get one book. It ends on such a cliffhanger that I think I would be mad if I didn't have the sequels. I have the romance package so all three are included. I'm not sure how happy I would be to have to use credits.

It does a pretty good job of keeping the story.

2 That the epilogue was longer. It wrapped things up well. I just wanted it to be longer.

At 34, I'm reeling from a divorce. I don't want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn's Dips and Balls. But my friends aren't having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I'm still taking a hard pass. Free designer cocktails, they say. And that's a game-changer. Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That's when I lose my mind.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn.

I downloaded this as book because from the romance package. I probably wouldn't have listened to it on my own. the story is basically the same thing over and over. But for some reason I just wanted to keep listening to it. Kind of like that show on TV that you like so you keep it on as background noise. I say yes it's a good book. I don't think I would have initially used a credit on it,but I'm already trying to decide if I will on book three because 1 and 2 are part of my package.

I got this book because I'm a huge fan of Dean Koontz. Not to say the beginning wasn't good for normal standard but I kept waiting for the bomb drop per say. I wasn't disappointed. Later the book drops a 6th sense kind of surprise on you (not literally just the same surprise type) that makes you want to go back through the other parts. So I'm the end I would reccomend it. But caution with some patience.
