Review:

The plot while it seemed intriguing in the synopsis fell inadvertently off a cliff with a lot of repeated story feed and then you’d be thrusted into an abundance of  happenings within what seemed to be 10 minutes of listening. Now I know the repetitiveness came from the fact that Blake and Adriana had a lot of mental conversation but it was also due to the fact that the story was told not in chronological order, so when you went back to a memory it seemed to play out until reaching the current time frame.

I didn’t particularly find myself liking either of our main characters. Blake was selfish in his actions and kind of bland. Nothing really stood out about his character that was like WOW what a man. And ad the male counterpart in a romance novel he should be the man I’d be swooning over.

Adriana just seemed to be a walking doormat. I mean literally everyone took their turn at twisting that knife further into her back. I’m surprised the woman can trust anyone at all. If they did it with good intention or bad intentions they still did it. She just seemed to deal with it, a little way to calmly. She had no fight and no backbone.

This is an overly filled drama induce second chance romance novel. I don’t think it was for me in the least bit.

Now I listened to this on audible and OH EM GEE…the audio was horrific. Not once, or twice but three times I was asked by my family why I was listening to a robot reading the book. And that was precisely how it sounded. It was agonizing for me listen to. I almost quite every time I turned it on. While Laurel reading was far better than McAllister. I don’t think I could do another audiobook with the pair reading as a duel.

  1. When I initially saw the cover, I thought, “Another unrealistic romance novel.” As I read the synopsis, I was immediately intrigue by the story line; however, I thought that it didn’t match the cover. I think you provide an excellent review of the book and help others avoid reading it. The way the main character lets everyone walk all over her makes me mad just reading it.

  2. Aw man what a shame!!! I’m sure hearing it read so poorly didn’t help your view of the actual story either. Maybe if they were at least sexy or nice sounding voices?? It’s too bad about what seems like a general lack of depth though!

  3. I wasn’t particularly intrigued by the synopsis, but I didn’t think it’d be as bad as you describe. The audio version sounds even more horrendous. Sorry you had to suffer through both!

  4. Wow, I was really attracted to the cover of this book, the model of this book cover certainly has a very good body to show off. Great review and will find out more in the book store.

  5. It looks like a nice and an interesting book to read but prepare to read this in a paper instead of listening into an audio.
