Exciting, thrilling with pain and sorrow

A story full of mystery from one passionate night to the morning after, as well as her father the man she loved who does so much good for the world. She finds she can’t forget the man who brings out the passion in her nor can she forgive the father she adores. When the two men come to life she finds her heart in turmoil as she fight to save one and the other she wishes she never knew.

The narrator did an outstanding job pulling me in from her many different character voices to the passion, anger and love she gives them. She puts true emotion into each one making you feel their pain, excitement and the danger that surrounds them. There were no volume changes, no repeating of words, or any breaks in the audio. The narrator pulls you in making you apart of the story giving you a picture you can see vividly in your mind. I haven’t listened to any of her work before and I can’t wait to listen to more of it.

The author pulled me in from the first few pages taking me into a plot that held pain, hurt, danger and love. I really enjoy the plot and loved the characters. It is short and sweet but don’t let that fool you, there is such passion and love along with thrills and a few trying times. Not everything is as it seems. It was well worth my time.

BIG Story in a Short Book

I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the story considering it’s under 3 hours long. There’s no instant love, either. It’s suspenseful, romantic and packs some surprises. Dawn Brower always packs a punch, at least in the stories I’ve listened to.

This is my first experience with Juliana Solo’s narration. She was wonderful. Talented voice artist!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
👍🏻 Thumbs Up and applause! 👏🏻

Romance, action and suspense in a quick read

Better as a Memory
Begin Again, Book 2

By: Dawn Brower
Narrated by: Juliana Solo

Belle meets the perfect man, only he makes it clear that he sees her as a one night stand. She moves on until their paths cross again; what a coincidence! Or is it more than coincidental?

Better as a Memory combines romance, action and suspense for an intriguing quick and smooth read. I recommend this for anyone who loves any genre. Brower has given readers another great read; quite easily a 4 star book! Also, I listened to the audio version and Frangione gave a great performance.

Short but Pretty Good!

I would have preferred for Cain and Belle's relationship to be better developed and have some basis. This happens to be a serious case of insta-love; which I'm not the biggest fan of. However, this is a relatively short listen, so it doesn't bother me in this case. There is actually a lot packed into this listen, despite its length.

Overall, I feel like the story was well written and I like that we get a twist as well as happily ever after. Quick enjoyable short romantic suspense that kept me interested from start to finish.

The narrator did a great job bringing this story to life.

Better as a Memory

Although this book is a very short listen, you will not be disappointed that you did. A relationship that starts as a one night stand and turns into fantastic memories ends with a HEA everyone is happy to see. The twist in this book was a bit of a surprise and gave the story a little more oomph to it. I will have to look into finding the first book in this series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.

Mystery romance

I really enjoyed this story. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because I thought Belle was kinda a pain when he shows up at the lake house. I thought the story was well written and other then that one scene I liked Belles character, I felt sorry for the life she s lived up to this point. Being the daughter of a wealthy politician she had everything she wanted except love. Cain, well he is just scrumptious! Love the whole story especially the ending
The narrator I thought she did a great job bringing these two to life, jumping back and forth between characters and did a great job as the bad guy- don’t want to say who that is! Definitely recommend
