Ever since my first Megan Hart book (Broken), I have become obsessed with her heartbreaking love stories. I have been debating this book since before it came out, but once it did, there was no question about if I would or would not purchase it.
I do not "regret" the purchase, but this story just felt so.....tame. When comparing to the rest of Megan's books, this one is minimally sexual. It's not steamy in the least, and the sexual encounters are barely there, and not erotic at all. I do love the story line, and the history between the two main characters, but it never made me shed a tear, like I usually do with Megan's books when she gives you something good, breaks it, then gives it back. I do love the fact that these aren't some young 20 somethings that fall in love with each other a week after meeting.
The flashbacks and flashforwards are kind of confusing, and you really have to be paying attention when they come. She says "then" when there is about to be a flashback, but there is no warning when coming back to current time. I had to rewind a few times to understand what happened when.
The relationship with the twins was confusing at times, and I was disappointed that one of them only appeared in the story, in the flashbacks. It would have been interesting to see him interact with his family in current times.
Lastly, the narrator was not horrible, but she does not do a male voice very well. When you have to range between a 12yo boy up to an 80+yo woman, you should have a bit of a better range. It almost always sounded like a whiny girl making voices. Not to say I would never listen to another book narrated by Suzy Lexington again, but I just don't think that she did as well with this one, as she could have.
