Story lacks dimension and use of senses.

I was surprised how lacking this story was. It was so "topical." In other words, the reader is not asked to use his or her imagination. The five senses are not engaged. It's dull and flat. Just as the characters are. The narration of each character is juvenile. I thought I was reading a young adult book. It's just, well, probably the last book I'll read by this author. I don't understand how some of these manuscripts become published. As readers/listeners lowered our standards that much? There are books you want to never end and then some you want to end immediately. This is a book I wanted to end immediately. I'm glad it was free.

Love the author.

I don’t really like the narrator. Her voice is too whispery. I’ve listened to all three books in the series because I like the story line. However I will have to actively avoid the narrator from now on.

Just ok

I feel like I said this a million times but to the authors, the one thing in my opinion that a reader thinks about when reading a book is personality of the person. You imagine what they look like and with the personality what they should sound like, when you actually read it and they don't it's disappointing. I'm sure I'm not the only person that thinks this way. This of course has to do with the audio portion of the book which is something that I really enjoy about a book is listening to it. Sorry I wish I could like this but don't.

Predictable yet sweet

Third book in the series, it was nice to finally meet the missing sister. However, I found it all very predictable.

THIS WAS A VERY NICE SHORT BOOK

I enjoyed this book for several reasons, first, the plot is believable, and the narrative was excellent. The male POV was good with him being a loving and devoted son with a conscience and following his heart for love. He was thoughtful and likable. Our female finally grew up and I for one was pleased that she didn't fall apart when dealing with so much baggage.

Unexpected

I was ready for a love story but this book was so much more. Betrayal and sex, lots of sex in different locations. Beautifully written.

Manipulated home life and on to a selfish/lack of control man

If takes away from the story when once there’s a sexual encounter; thereafter each time the couple meet.. they have explicit sex!

Not to give anything away, but you’re not a good person if you’re hiding a secret that if reviled could cause someone not to be intimate with you if told..and you go ahead and have sexual relations with them.
