I read a bunch of reviews before reading this trying to get some spoilers. Not once did I read who Rix really turned out to be. It was a great surprise. I struggled initially because him being a big time ganger just didn't seam realistic even tho I grew to like him after a while. I do hope there will be another book for Hennesy.

Loved it!!

What made the experience of listening to Falling Under the most enjoyable?

Just remembering the feelings of first love and the butterflies of that time etc.... I loved Oz although I felt like Kylie didn't necessarily live in the real world. I don't know why I didn't see it about who Oz's mother was.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Oz. Because he just loved her so much and wanted to do right by her. It was sweet. And the fact that he wouldn't sleep with her till she was 18.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Everything. I really like them a lot.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I couldn't stop listening. I had my earphones in at work and nobody could talk to me. lol

Any additional comments?

I loved Coltons feelings at the talent show. Where he was seeing the connection between Kylie and Oz. He knew because of him and Nell and their connection in music and how intimate it was for them. As a parent myself, I see things when my children have gone thru those things and so I could relate to Colton there.

Completely Obsessed!!

What did you love best about Falling into You?

I cannot even pick one thing. I LOVE this love story. I listen to it repeatedly when I want to feel true love. I am a 45 yr old woman, married almost 20 years, not a young adult as this book was geared for but I fell so in love with these characters its just ridiculous. lol.

What did you like best about this story?

That Colton was always there to protect her and was always drawn to her.

Have you listened to any of Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this was the first book I heard of theirs. I love them. And then I just googled them and read their love story. OMGOODNESS..

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes. I was obsessed. downloaded the play lists for the books etc and so forth.

Any additional comments?

After listening to this and the rest of the books, I was sooooo heartbroken to see the series come to an end. I am hoping that Gabriel will do a audio for Falling for Colton.

I liked the story

Would you listen to Sweet as Sin again? Why?

No, I would not listen to it again. I might consider reading it but im afraid the narration voice of Niko would forever be burned into my brain. The story was good. Narration was horrible for Nikos voice.

What did you like best about this story?

Everyday girl tames Rock n Roll bad guy.

What about Teri Clark Linden’s performance did you like?

Her voice is good for Kat. Horrible for Niko. Did not make him sound like a Rocker AT ALL. Sounded like some country and western yahoo.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I felt sick when Kat rejected him at the club but I felt so much love when he put the note in the bag that Barney brought.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes!! The narration. Horrible. Chloe's voice was fine by itself but when the girl narrator spoke as A.J. it sounded like Red from Orange is the New Black. Just awful. The storyline itself was the only thing that kept me wanting to continue listening. I suppose it might have been better for me to pick up reading it instead of listening to this one. I had issues with Nikos accent as well. Even when the man spoke those few times, it DEFINITELY sounded NOTHING like I would imagine AJ to sound based on what is supposed to be him on the cover.
Also, I would have liked to have AJ be able to see. Like, perhaps he didn't have all of his sight but would be able to see his baby.

Who was your favorite character and why?

AJ was my favorite because he was a tortured soul

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Yes!! Chloe's voice was fine by itself but when the girl narrator spoke as A.J. it sounded like Red from Orange is the New Black. Just awful. The storyline itself was the only thing that kept me wanting to continue listening. I suppose it might have been better for me to pick up reading it instead of listening to this one. and perhaps I will do that with any future books in this series. I had issues with Nikos accent as well in the first book. Even when the man spoke those few times, it DEFINITELY sounded NOTHING like I would imagine AJ to sound based on what is supposed to be him on the cover.

Did Make Me Sin inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

This was such a gut wrenching story. I had to keep listening to it. I won't listen to it again as I have many other audio books because the narration is so bad. It was so hard to stick with both stories. I am glad I did but will definitely only read it when future books come along.

Any additional comments?

The only thing I struggled with was Gabriel Vaughns narration in this one when he was reading Echo. Sometimes I wish that Piper could read the girl parts and Gabriel, the guy ones. Not sure how that would sound either, its just that I found myself laughing at times when he was reading echo.
