Amazing!!

When my mom first told me to listen to this book i thouht, this is going to be another boring adult book. So i postponed reading it until i had read everything else. That turned out to be a huge mistake, because after reading this book i went ammidiatly to audible to find out if she had written anythin else.


This book contains everything you could want in a book, mystery, romance, action, suspense, and family. It is written so well you feel connected to Lucy and her feelings in a way you dont with other books. And as for the reader i think she was just perfect. She had to read for a boy as well and she did an amazing job. I hope she read more books so i can buy them as well.

Give it a chance

What disappointed you about Impossible?

I don't believe the story was a bad story it just was not my genre or the way that I like a love story to play out it was definitely not for me.

What do you think your next listen will be?

After I read this I definitely went back to my conference zone of happy ever after love story with those hot steamy scenes. It was definitely a from start to finish just about love.

Which scene was your favorite?

I always try to find a bright side of things and I guess I would say it would be where she was determined to not have history follow her.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Impossible?

I always try to find a bright side of things and I guess I would say it would be where she was determined to not have history follow her. I would say maybe a little more explaining or backstory and more and maybe would've been a little bit more understanding but if I found myself confused re-reading a lot taking notes and I wasn't alone with the same thoughts

Any additional comments?

I will give this author another shake it just may have been the book was not my genre or my type of romance novel but we'll see what the next book :)

Beautiful, modern fairy tale

I relished listening to his tale from start to finish. For me, there was the perfect balance of conflict, but it wasn't too stressful a listen. The story arc was relatively straightforward, but there wasn't a sense of plodding or page filler. The story flowed well. Even though the conclusion could be guessed pretty easily, it was still a bit of a nail biter till the plot-climax. As a reader/listener, I felt invested in the characters, and that they were real and three-dimensional. Definitely getting the sequel.
