Very slow, quite unbelievable and dissapointing

i have read many of Lindsey Kelk's books so was excited to listen to this one. this was my first audio book of Lindsey although i have read the i heart series and a few others, i was extremely dissapointed with this book, it took me a few months to complete it and that is only because i am stubborn with books and wont give up on them, i listened to several books in between this one and felt the story to be very far fetched, quite boring, the male lead character to be unlikable and generally very flat, the end finally arrived and i just felt relieved i could move on to another book, i wont spoil the end but its really is nothing to write home about,. i was dissapointed with the book, but that of course is just my opinion, i wouldn't really waste a credit on it but if it comes up in an offer, maybe give it a go?

Really liked the plot

I very nearly quit listening to this one as the narrators were frustratingly slow (may be suitable for some, but I found it unbearable). then switched the speed up to 1.3 amd all was great. Interesting plot with a few twists, hillarios bits, liked the male/female thinking sounded out... overall thoroughly enjoyed.

The most annoying main characters ever

This is my first review on audible but I felt it necessary to warn anyone thinking of listening to this. The female protagonist is the most annoying, selfish, childish character ever written. She seems confused the ENTIRE book and her inability to communicate left me yelling at my car stereo as I listened. She seems to be throwing a prolonged tantrum the whole book. The male lead is not much better, though after the first couple chapters I began siding with the poor emotionally stunted and communicatively challenged sod. The performance is alright but I find that Kelk writes her female leads as mostly confused, self pitying and self involved for the majority of the book and then evolving into outright selfishness in the finale, all the while expecting the guy they've been stringing along to be there for them while they "figure themselves out". I'm all about being your own person but I've never understood the notion of a.) not being able to do that in a healthy relationship or b.) doing that at the expense of your significant other's feelings. You're perfectly capable of finding yourself without making someone wait for you to do so.

Couldn't get past narration.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I returned this because I couldn't get past the switching back and forth narration. They should had the Avita do all female roles and Ben do all male. Weird set up.

What was most disappointing about Lindsey Kelk’s story?

the set up of chapters

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Avita Jay and Ben Allen ?

.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

.

Any additional comments?

So. Much. Whining.

The characters were so whiny and failed to actually grow a spine and communicate with each other. I quit by the third chapter because I just couldn’t.

Be prepared

This is one of the few books I couldn’t even finish. The characters are unlikeable and the split narration is confusing. To have the female lead speak both male and female thoughts is one thing, but then when it’s from the male perspective it changes to a male narrator doing a male and female voice. So each main character has two voices and the male to female is painful to listen to. I didn’t even care how it ended and that’s unusual for me. I was hoping to like it, but I couldn’t get there. :(

Dragged On FOREVER!!!

I listen to a lot of audio books. This story had no surprises though I kept waiting. A very hum drum story line. I wouldn't recommend it though like other books by the author.

We were on a break

Any additional comments?

I found this book OK. I got really annoyed with the characters because a lot of the issue was just a misunderstanding! If they had communicated properly t etc etc. I just get frustrated when this happens in stories.
Overall it did keep my interest and I did want to find out what happened.

Insightful and funny chick flick

I really liked hearing the story from Adam's side. The male perspective was intriguing and made me step outside my normal heroine view. It was almost like a thriller waiting to see what would happen next. Enjoyable listen.
