Summary

Out of the past six years of my life, I only remember about half of it. After a dozen doctors and thousands in medical bills, I was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder - one that causes me to lose track of time. Sometimes it's hours, days or even weeks with no recollection of anything. The good thing is it's been almost two years since I had my last blackout. It sounds much better than what the doctors refer to them as, episodes, like my life is a freakin' comedy.

During those two years of normal, I finally managed to get my bachelor's degree, a job I love, and I've just proposed to a woman who has been there for me through it all. For the first time in a long time everything is on track.

Until a strange woman shows up at my door - she says I'm her husband and I think she's crazy. Until, I get a voice mail on my phone. It's from a guy named Cal. The weird part is, it's the same name the strange woman called me. What terrifies me, is this guy Cal...his voice sounds just like mine.

4+ stars

I really enjoyed listening to this! I've read all of the books in this series already and just loved them as a whole, a big 5++ stars collectively. There are some stories that just stick with you and this was one of them for me.

Before I Break was actually my least favorite of the series back when I first read them, originally only getting 3 stars. The first time through I hadn't liked the way Chris sounded in my head, he seemed whiny and weak. Granted I'm a huge team Cal fan & their personalities are vastly different so obviously I was going to not like Chris as much, but listening to it read really helped give more depth to his emotions.

That was actually one of the main reasons that I jumped at the chance to listen to this when the chance arose. I've never listened to an audio book before, but was hoping that listening to it could change my perspective, and it did. I had hated that I didn't enjoy this book as much as the rest of the series, and having listened to it, now I do.

It was great to hear Zachary Webber narrating this, his voice was very easy to listen to, in fact I listened to it all in one sitting. He did a wonderful job portraying Chris' confusion and frustration throughout the entire book. I especially liked the scene where first meets Lauren and his mind and body struggle against each other over what to do. : )

Interesting

Interesting story. But not interesting enough for me to purchase the other 2 books in the series. Although, if Zachary Webber were reading them I might make the effort.
Outstanding narration by ZW...

I feel broken!!!!

I purchased this book because of Zachary Webber. He is an amazing narrator!!!! And since the ending feels like a cliffhanger, disappointed I don't see the next book on audible except Lauren's story.. But I did enjoy this novella but is or will there be a next book? Maybe it's not on audible yet but I did enjoy the narration and his POV but still feel unsatisfied with how this ended.

Update: I was so engrossed with this series I purchased the kindle book set on amazon and was not disappointed. If this full series goes to audible, you must listen!!!! It's a tear jerker and full of love, angst, twists and turns. I loved this series. Please go audible and it has to be Zachary again as the Cal. I updated my rating because I read the remaining books and loved them. Portia Moore is an excellent writer.

Heartbreakly good!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Loved getting to hear Cal/Chris' side of things. Made me more appreciative of his (chris') struggle

Which scene was your favorite?

In Lauren's hotel room!

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

He didn't know there was someone else, until he realised that someone else was him!

Exciting, emotional!

Well written story about a pivotal and emotional time in Chris's life! Once I started listening I didn't stop until the book was finished. Can't wait to listen to the next in the series!!
