    "Great book, but"

    Great book but audible does not have the chapters inline with a hardcover version as JR ward writes books with too many chapters.
    I found this to be inconvenient when I wanted to read my hard cover book or when I wanted to pick up where I left off in the car. I spent a lot of time searching for the spot I last read.
    Other then that I loved being able to listen to audible when I was busy but had time to listen. The book was amazing , recommend it!!!

    "Lover Awakened"

    This is one of my favorite stories by JR Ward, this is a great romance story with action through out the book. The narrator is not my favorite, however, he did okay.

    "Amazing story. Not so amazing narrator."

    I love this entire series. Each book sucks you in more and more. I think Lover Awakened is my favorite. It's a beautiful story about emotional growth and learning how to overcome abuse.

    My only complaint is about the narrator. Frangione is so monotone and lifeless and it really takes away from the books. I can't tell any difference between characters unless I'm listening to context clues. He makes everyone sound bored no matter the scenario the characters are in. Very unfortunate.

    Story
    "This one may be my favorite so far"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it was a good story and fun to read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    V is my favorite, but Z is a close second. I like his back story and his personality and this book wrote him very well. You could feel his anguish and sincerely wanted everything to turn out good for him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't have just one in this book. It was really all good. While the lessor's story is relevant, I tend to just skim over their chapters because it's not nearly as interesting as what's going on with the boys!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    hmmm, not sure, but I'd love it if there was a mini-series of these, each episode dealing with one of the boys' stories. That's be very cool.
