Great Read

Loving Simone was a good read by Jessica Tilles. To those around her, Simone Woodson has a perfect life. Unfortunately, behind closed doors her life isn’t as perfect as it seems. Jackson has betrayed her and it’s created a desire for intimacy. I enjoyed this book and loved listening to Kelley Hazen’s narration. I cant wait to read more by the author.

Steamy

Simone is an unfulfilled and taken for granted housewife, husband Jackson is an arrogant two timing lawyer and have a toddler daughter. Simone meets up with Darius whom she known years ago and everything changes, there are quite a few sexual situation and loved that her father blasted Jackson at the end. Enjoyed it with great narration. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU

A Great Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and enjoyed it very much. Simone is married with a baby girl and to the world she has everything. But her world is slowly crumbling around her. She is tired of her husband's lies and betrayals, but doesn't know how to get what she needs without risking the lifestyle she wants for her daughter. One day she runs into an old friend and her world is forever changed. As you listen to the story from both sides of the marriage, you're drawn into the characters lives and wonder how she's going get the life she wants. The perfect length to in one sitting.

A perfect life not so perfect

Simone just wanted consideration, to be cared for, loved… To the outside world things might seem perfect, but things were anything but… Can Simone have the life that she wants and deserves?

Jessica Tilles really tugged at my heartstrings with this story. The situations that the characters face were all too real. I really felt for Simone. Well done!

This was a very emotional listen, thanks in part to Kelley Hazen’s fantastic performance. I could feel each and every one of the emotions the characters were experiencing.

Very intense and thought-provoking

Loving Simone is a fascinatingly honest book about relationships. Jessica Tilles has crafted this book in such an interesting way. Some of the story was necessarily crude and starkly candid while other moments more sensitively addressed. The characters are remarkably human and honest as well.

I will admit that there were moments the story had me at the edge of my seat because the characters were going through so much. I wanted to stop listening and take a break because the characters were making painful choices. But even while I felt the desire to pause the book, I could not stop listening. I think what struck the most about this story is how most people can relate to parts of the story. The experiences and emotions are real even while the characters are fictitious.

Kelley Hazen, as always, has given a stellar performance. She somehow manages to convey the subtle nuances of each character's personality as she narrates the book.

Fantastic all around!
