Summary

Fire captain Carson Sullivan swore off love long ago. After the love of his life broke his heart and left him, he gave up on the idea of commitment and settled for the playboy lifestyle. He’s a devoted son, a loyal friend, and a dedicated firefighter. That’s all he needs. Until the one woman with the power to light a fire in his heart walks back into his life bringing with her the memories of heartache he thought he'd buried. 

Sloan Thomas left Golden Beach with a shattered heart and a big secret. After the death of her grandfather brings her home, she decides a fresh start is exactly what she needs. But first love never dies, and Carson Sullivan isn’t a man easily forgotten. Now they’re left with the remnants of a life not lived and the possibility of so much more.

Nice second-chance romance and a good audio duet

To be honest, I went for this book due to Zachary Webber’s participation in the audio. The author is new to me and I didn’t know the other narrator. But I saw it was a second-chance romance and besides, it was read in duet and I love such audios, so it was a double win for me. I had to listen.

The story was cute, sweet and sexy with a touch of emotions and drama here and there. Plotwise it was kind of predictable for the most part but it managed to surprise me a time or two. It was good for in-between books – not overly dramatic and a nice second chance romance and all in all a heartfelt story.

Zachary Webber was his awesome self as usual and nailed the character, putting so much emotion to his performance. I loved his act and it was good to hear him in duet although the female narrator Lacy Laurel sounded a bit off for me. It wasn’t bad per se, but I couldn’t get used to her way of pronunciation and her voice in general. I enjoyed the duet performance though.

The beginning was a bit slow and I couldn’t feel this insta love from the past and the feelings they still shared after all these years, but little by little some things started to unravel and the story got more dynamic. To be honest I loved the final part of this book the most with all the action, unexpected events and intense moments. Good ending.

This was a nice second chance romance with a good duet performance in audio

Carson and Sloan

I enjoy second chance romances. And I love these narrators. So, wanting to listen to this book was a given. I was not disappointed. I got so invested in the story that I was talking to the characters like they were in front of me (yelling really). Carson and Dlian have their ups and downs and I enjoyed their journey. Great story.

An interesting mixed bag

I liked this story a lot, and there were a few plot twists that surprised me and kept it interesting, but it took a long time to get going. Were it not for the 5 star ratings and reviews of others insisting that it was great, I likely would have abandoned it, but I’m so glad I stuck it out, and you will be, too. Zachary Webber’s narration is perfection, as always, and he gets 5 stars. This was my first exposure to Lacy Laurel, and her narration lowers the overall performance score due to a number of issues, such as mispronunciation of common words (libary, flustrated) and poor enunciation in some key passages. Others have scored her highly, so it may just be a personal preference of mine, and I’d hate for anyone to miss out on the story as a result. I would encourage anyone considering this book to listen to the sample first.

3.5 Second Chance Stars

I have so many mixed feelings regarding this story. I love second chance romance, and I loved the premise behind this story. However, I didn’t always like the characters, I wasn’t happy with some of their decisions or how they handled things (and I’m not talking about their decisions as teenagers), I’m talking about their decisions as adults and how they handled life going forward. They have a complicated past, and if they ever have a future together I felt that they needed to be more mature and open going forward. I wanted Carson to be more take charge, and I didn’t want Sloane to be less mean (that’s how I felt she was at times). The story was sweet and emotional and I couldn’t fault the narration. Zachary Webber was perfect as Carson.

After reading book 1- I was left feeling sad, angry and betrayed on Cadence's behalf. Going into book 2, I had an open mind and was willing to forgive Fitz. It didn't take long for him to worm his way back into my good graces. The characters went through an amazing change between book 1 and 2 however with 17 years separating the books, you would expect that. The characters have grown, matured and lived- Defining who they were as adults.

I have a hard time with 2nd chance romances as I always feel a sense of loss when I look at how much time was wasted apart. I was absolutely sucked into this story and lived the ups and downs right along with them. I was very proud of the man Fitz became and feel bad for all the mean thoughts I may have mentally yelled at him after book 1.

The narration was spot on. Lacy and Zachary gave amazing performances and truly brought the characters to life.

This was a fabulous story from start to finish and all the stops in between.

Blown away over this second chance romance

WOW this was such a sweet, emotional journey of two high school sweethearts that tugged on my heart strings. The narration was superb and I believe that I could listen to Zachary and Lacy forever. Loved their duet narration of Sloan and Carson, and they made it like watching a movie with my ears.

Then I found out that it’s a series. WOW
Sorry friends and family because I may be missing for a while 🤗 I’m going to need to get the other books ❣️

True love lasts forever.

🎧 Audiobook Obsession Reviewer

This s such a sweet story of second chance romance.between Carson and Sloan who were high school sweethearts but things get in the way and they part ways. Sloan is back it's like no time has passed but so much has happened can they get over it all? Oh I loved both Carson and Sloan they were such caring people and deserved a HEA but Carson just can't get over what went down between them both. Sloan was such a sweetheart she had a kind sole. This book pulled me in and stole my heart I loved everything about it.

Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel were sooooooo good together loved that it was a Duet as they made it work so good it was so easy to imagine the story while they were reading.

I am so glad I got to listen and would highly recommend it I now need to listen to the rest of the series and you get to meet lots of characters from previous books and I know need to know everyone's story. A 5 star book.x

Fantastic Work

Reviewing for Audiobook Obsession

Very sweet storyline and definitely swoon-worthy. Zachary Webber does a fantastic portrayal of Carson and has the perfect voice for this role making the characters sound every bit as sexy as the characters personality.

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this storyline and would happily read/listen to more from this author in the future.

Lacy Laurel is the reincarnation of Sloan and does a fantastic job in getting the characters inner emotions across.

All in all fantastic work.

3.75 stars overall but (5🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for Zachary Webber)

I enjoyed this book for the most part. Zachary Webber is always a super star and this was my first book with Lacy Laurel in a duet fashion. I like duet narration although this one was a tad bit jilted. The story was solid and the characters were defined so it’s hard to say what was missing but something didn’t bring it full circle for me. Overall it was a good book and fun story with just a slightl component missing to make it all that.

Loved it!

This was a fabulous 2nd chance romance. I loved the characters and their Chemistry. I found the characters very relatable and easy to fall in love with. I felt for them and their journey. Kim has this way of making you fall in love yet still ripping tears from you sooner or later. I loved it.

Narration was great. Lacy and Zachary gave a fabulous performance. They add so much feeling to their narrations. I was quite impressed with the editing and splicing of the narrations. you would never have guessed the narrators were not in the same room. This was a beautiful performance.

Great 2nd chance romance!

This story is fantastic! What more is there to say besides that? The drama of a 2nd chance romance is always the best and Remnants takes it to a whole new level. I ended the book with a smile on my face and a happy sigh coming off my lips. Kim Loraine did an amazing job with this book!

The narration was perfect! The duet with Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber was done perfectly. It was seamless and made you feel you were right there with the two.

A great listen

Remnants is a second chance at love story by new to me author Kim Loraine and why I have not read her before I have no idea. The narration from Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel was on point and added to my enjoyment of this story.
Ms. Loraine had me invested from the first to the last chapter with the story she wove of Fire Captain Carson Sullivan and the woman who broke his heart, his first and only love, Sloan Thomas.
The chemistry between Carson (Sully) and Sloan was intense and I found them both easy to relate too. A sweet, romantic story that had quite a few laugh out loud moments but was also at times an emotional roller coaster.

This was a story of love and regret, of lives that could so easily have been different but for the choices made so long ago.Can Sully and Sloan, forgive the mistakes of the past and the choices made and move forward with a future that they both deserve?

The chemistry between Carson (Sully) and Sloan was intense and I found them both easy to relate too. This was a great book to listen to and I look forward to reading/listening to more from Kim Lorraine.

2nd Chance Romance

This is a good second chance love story that takes place in the present and flashes back to 15 years earlier throughout the book. I actually enjoyed the flashbacks, it helped clarify why each person was feeling a certain way when we got to see what happened from their point of view. This was actually my first book from the Golden Beach series, so I will definitely need to go back and read the others. There were a lot of couples in the book that intrigued me, and I think if I would have read the others and gotten to know Carson (Sully) better from all the previous books then I would have loved him so much more.

Carson and Sloan were high school sweethearts, and their relationship and struggles seemed so realistic for that age. When Sloan’s family moved away they never spoke to each other again which broke both their hearts. All the hurt and misunderstandings are so typical for the first love and I could see it all happen, there were so many things that happened to keep them from reconnecting. Sloan inherits her grandfather’s house after he passed and she decides to move back thinking Carson no longer lived there. The two are constantly running into each other and the battle between lust and hurt always seems to occur. Even though the relationship between them took center stage there was plenty of side drama to keep me interested in everything that was happening. The only downfall was the constant back and forth for Sloan and Carson, I could only take each of them changing their minds so many times before it became too much.

Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life! This was actually my first time listening to Lacy Laurel but I was pleasantly surprised, she was able to portray all the different female characters and give them different voices. As always Zachary Webber was excellent, I will listen to anything he narrates!

I'm Ready For The Beach Are You?

Sloan had me wanting to listen to her story again while I either sit in a bookstore or at the library. Even better if there was a beach close by. Her story was one that you'll love to get lost in. And it doesn't hurt that we have a couple of narrators that I love to listen to. They did a great job at bringing this story to life.

Sully seems to fit his name - he seems a little sullen. He lets us see that he has a soft spot but doesn't want others to know. His past is a sore spot but it's come back to bite him in the a**. I liked how Mr. Webber and Ms. Laurel told us the story as a duet. It makes the experience more pleasant. As if we are actually hearing the characters talk to each other. All that was missing was the smell-a-vision.

Ms. Loraine creates characters that the reader can relate to. Each scene moves seamlessly as the story unfolds. She also will make you sad - especially if you are taking care of an elderly parent. There's no way you can't feel sorry for those involved. Our author includes a mystery but doesn't let it overtake everything else that's going on. Listening to a rekindling romance was a treat - just needed to get my chocolate.

I found myself wanting to know more about The Golden Beach series. Good thing that I realized that this can be considered a standalone because i have a lot of catching up to do - other people I want to meet and get to know. After enjoying listening to this one, I don't know that I would read the book. Having someone read to me added to my enjoyment and I think I'd like that to continue. And listening to Mr. Webber do a British accent - fan self.

Sully and Sloan!

Kim Loraine has brought us Sully's (aka Carson Sullivan) story in Remnants. I love how he and Sloan reconnected after 15 years. Second chances at love are so rare, and with your soulmate its even better. This listen is full of so many emotions and endearing characters. I love the glimpses into other couples from Golden Beach, the sweetness Sully has for his mom, Zeus the dog, and the shocking twist in this book! I won't give away spoilers, but I never saw that coming. Both Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel were brilliant in this book. I loved their distinguishable voices for various characters from Sloan, Sully, to the little kids, the British new neighbors, and everyone else. They brought them all to life with their voices and emotions. I could envision so many details in this book. I loved it! This may be my favorite Golden Beach book.
