Summary

I fell in love with Manda Baker eight years ago, and I loved her to the core of her soul. We were supposed to have that elusive happily ever after and spend a lifetime together. But that was all before she was stolen from me. Her best friend, Sarah Erickson, killed her. It wasn't intentional. It was far worse. Everyone claims it was just an accident, but I can see through the lies. Even if it's with my dying breath, I will make her pay for what she did. Fate hates me. It robbed me of my first love and left me to navigate through this world emotionless and numb. Then, one day, spiteful fate gave me a woman to fill my shattered soul and make me feel again. It gave me Emma Jane Erickson. Now I spend my days searching for the answers that will ruin Sarah and my nights falling in love with her sister - the one person who is bound and determined to save her. But what happens when everything you know to be true explodes around you?

Phenomenal

loved this if I could give 6☆ I would.
A brilliantly planned story, enough angst and laughter peppered throughout. I really felt a vested interest in each of the characters. Often feel like the book ends too quickly, but this one unfolded a little more and I really got a more rounded experience because of it.I will definitely be looking at other books from this author.

Un-put-downable!!!

Would you listen to Stolen Course again? Why?

Without a doubt I would listen to this story again. An absolute roller coaster of emotions.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved everything about this story. Every emotion known to mankind seems to be packed into these pages and the way it's told feels raw and hits you deep. I loved Emma's strength. She was a perfect match for Caleb and the fact that their journey to happiness was bumpy at best, brought even more depth to the story and the characters....everything felt real and honest. I just loved the entire story - start to finish!

What does Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have struggled with audiobooks in the past because I simply love to READ the words for myself but without a doubt this narration duo did a fantastic job and I listened to the entire book without reading a single word and it was not a struggle. They gave these characters life and brought forward every emotion. I literally wanted to stop what I was doing and sit and listen. The equivalent of being glued to the TV

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I think I'm still in shock at my reaction to this book. I laughed and I cried and I loved every minute of it. This book touched me deeply....more deeply than expected.

SUCH A SAD STORY WITH A HAPPY ENDING

Any additional comments?

I must say I am happy that I didn't listen to book one because it seems like that one does not end the way I would have enjoyed. Now this story was deep and full of road blocks but they figured it out with a lot of compromise and understanding. This was a heart jerker with some good nukie AND there is a twist....

Kept me on my toes!

Just when I think I know what's going on, Aly throws a big twist. I absolutely have loved this series and can see the potential for it to continue. The performance is spot on and the narrators were the perfect choice.

Couldn't turn it off! Emotional!!!!

Where does Stolen Course rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the best audiobook I have listened to in a long time. What a great story. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

What did you like best about this story?

Emma and Caleb made a very interesting couple. They both fought for their relationship - it wasn't just one of them fighting. The story line was compelling. I couldn't shut the audiobook off. There were many twists and turns!

Have you listened to any of Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to both Christian Fox and Lucy River's performances before. I really enjoy both of them. Easy listening.

A PAIN FILLED BUT BEAUTIFUL SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE

This book follows on from book 1, although it does recap things and could be a stand-alone listen, IMHO, it's still best to be listened to after the first one. What a heartbreaking emotional journey these books take you on as it flips from present day then to 5 years prior when the accident shattered lives and stole so many hopes and dreams.

This book has plenty of heartache because the coming to terms with his loss, forgiving her sister and moving forward in his life seems too difficult a challenge for Caleb but he tries to give it his best shot. Luckily Emma is a strong, thoughtful and loving woman but will her love be enough to set him free.

This is such an emotional, heartbreaking and romantic story about second chances and the pitfalls and strength that's needed to make new and beautiful memories. There's tender, touching and romantic scenes, hot sex scenes, heart-to-heart scenes and bare your soul to the world scenes and beneath them all is a passionate love story that's got lots of sex, some dirty talk, plenty of drama and angst, a plot twist and a "you'll never see it coming" shocking revelation.

Dual P.O.V.'s and dual narrators who both did a great job.

Worth the credit? It does eventually get to the HEA of Caleb's and Emma's love story together and it gives a glimpse of what's happening in Brett and Jesse's lives from book 1.......so YES a creditworthy listen.

So much better then Book One

I love Aly's writing.
But book one of this series was a necessary train wreck.

This book, however, was fantastic. I fell in love with Caleb in book one. Now his heartache gives him depth. His story will crush you then lift you up.
I love how much more realistic these characters are. Instead of being weak willed and straight laced like Jesse (book one), Emma has sex appeal, a backbone and the rationality to go to friends and ask questions when she doesn't understand where Caleb is coming from or what she did wrong to set him off. I love that about her. She doesn't just assume and write Caleb off, she goes above and beyond to help him through his grief. She is loving and understanding, but she doesn't take any of his crap either. I love Emma. And I love her and Caleb.

Definitely worth suffering through book one.

Narration note:
Lucy Rivers does a bad southern accent and makes the character sound old. Find Andi Arndt...
Christian Fox can read the best dead pan voice! He puts the perfect amount of emotion and humor into every sentence (almost like he actually reads the chapter and understands the characters before hand! Must be a newer concept... 😒) He's currently my #3 fave male narrator!
