Book was better

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I loved the book but the audio version left alot to be desired. I felt the narrator could've done a whole lot better.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The custody talk...the "daddy for the holidays" fairytale.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pete Ohms?

Two of my favorite narrators, either Ezra Knight or Kevin Free.

Do you think Truly Everlasting needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, it was too fairy tale..Not one of Ms. Jackson's best books.

Too short

I enjoyed the story but tbqh, it was waayyy too short. Like I feel like there could’ve been more elaborated on and some of the key things were just repetitive to make it longer.
Overall I enjoy listening to Brenda Jackson’s audio books.

Story Felt Rushed; Narration Was Good

A good quick read that I wish had been longer. I listened to the audio book, and it seemed like this story rushed through to the end. I thought that once again, the narration was well done. I'm also a sucker for a book with a kid in it who is not obnoxious.

Trask and Felicia's story was a frenemies to lovers tale. I thought there was a lot of aggression at the beginning that morphed into passion. The transition was so gradual, if you blinked, you missed it.

There was a twist for me in Trask's reaction to Felicia's visit to Cali. He didn't react at all like I expected, and I thought that added a lot to the story.

I think I would have rated it higher had there been more to it.
