This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

WARNING: The following story contains mature themes, strong language, and sexual situations. It is intended for listeners 18+ older.

She's scarred by her past.

Andrea Evans is traumatized and guilt-ridden by the death of her fiancée. Tired of the gossiping small town, she travels to New York City to pursue her dream of dance. He's uncertain of his future.

Cooper Davidson is a famous photographer and reality television star trying to flee from his own life filled with paparazzi, mental health clinics, and a cheating wife who is pregnant.

When Andrea and Cooper's paths cross, they realize how damaged and in need of escapism they both are. The two create an arrangement to explore the space in between chaos and order with one another. The rules are simple - no emotional connections, no talking about the past, no speaking of the future, and when one finds order, the other walks away. All is well until Cooper accidentally falls in love with Andrea.

Squeaky

The female readers voice is TERRIBLE! I could barely concentrate on the story line, which was not all that great.

FROM PAIN & CHAOS - COMES ORDER & LOVE

Heartbroken Andrea and devastated Cooper found themselves in 'the space in between' where on one side there's Chaos and on the other side there's Order and they agree to be in the space between the two. Because both of them were broken, both of them were damaged, both of them had heartbreak and both of them agreed that in 'the space in between' there would be no thoughts of the past or the future and they'd be sex without guilt or strings... until eventually one of them reaches Order. But, as messed up as Cooper's celebrity lifestyle was, he'd already reached Order - at the tender age of 9 and a half years old.... when he fell in love with Andrea for the very first time.

Andrea was grieving the tragic loss of the love of her life... her Fiancé Derrick and also trying to cope with the guilt over his death - Cooper's failing marriage ceased the moment he found out that his wife was 3 months pregnant.... by another man. So, for the both of these two lost souls, the space in between was the safest place to be.... however, emotions change, broken hearts heal and love blooms.... but you've got to make space and you've got to let it in. There was soul-deep sadness and pain, bouts of humor harmony and happiness - then angst and broken dreams when the Paparazzi trampled over the tentative seedlings of change... and destroyed two hearts that we're finally healing.

This talented Author took me on a journey filled with raw emotions, heartache, healing and love but along the way Andrea and Cooper would inevitably lose each other for a while as they both needed time to bury the ghosts of their pasts. Andrea was battered but not broken because she had a supportive, funny and loveable best friend in Ladasha and, with Cooper's unwavering love, Andrea finally got the HEA that she a Cooper so deserved. Cooper was a wonderful handsome charismatic hero whose sexy Southern drawl, touching heartfelt declarations and unconditional love got to me every single time. Their romance wasn't instant... instead it took time to mature and develop. Supportive secondary friends and family, one nasty bitchy wife (soon to be ex) and that was her problem, secrets, revelations and blurred sex scenes were also included in the dual POV's storyline. And a couple of great narrators added heartbeats, added emotions and added depth to make this an awesome listen.

Worth a credit? They both wanted to escape their painful realities and, in doing so, they healed each other and found love. I wanted to escape my reality too... of endless chores and this captivating listen did its job ... because I became lost in this emotional yet beautiful love story. Very enjoyable and very creditworthy.

Liked it

A widower/jilted husband theme. Familiar plot but excellent characters takes this book up a notch.

Narration was okay.

Occasional erotic/steamy scenes.

I can't get past the 2nd chapter

The narrator's voice is all wrong. Not only doesn't she sound like she's in her 50's, but she has a clear southern accent. The character is from Wisconsin - ZERO southern accent there, I can assure you. I'm sure the story would have been fine, but I just can't listen to the whole thing like this.

Freaking Amazing

I expect nothing less than phenomenal when I read a Brittainy C Cherry book and this was no different. it captivated me from the first page. Brittainy's books seem to draw me in emotional like no other author have.

This is a story of fight. Emotional rollercoaster. Then overcoming tragedy. loved it hard.

Loved the characters, but not the story.

Great characters, but the story had too many gaps in it. Trying to keep who was connected to whom whose secrets were connected. I love Brittainy Cherry’s work. This just wasn’t up to her usual standards.

Had to return it after only 2 chapters

Im so glad this is part of the romance package and I didnt have to purchase it and was able to just return it.
The beginning was very sad and I almost stopped listening but I didnt; however the story and the narrators didnt improve, the story Im sure is not that bad, but the female narrator has an older voice, it felt like she was telling the story to her grandkids, they should take those kind of details into consideration, if the narrator has an older voice dont give her such a young character.
I got to listen only one chapter with the male character in and that was more than enough, its so unrealistic, it might as well be a female character. I really hate it when women authors do that were they picture males as they would like them to be and not as men really are.

Eh... Not one of her best

Brittainy Cherry can write amazing works of art, but I’m sad to say this wasn’t one of them. The female narrator makes it so much worse. I am sorry to say I couldn’t finish the audio.
