Would you listen to A Beautiful Kind of Love again? Why?
I would, and probably will...lol This was a wonderfully written book...it made me sooo sad, and sooo angry at times...but I couldn't put it down!
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Beautiful Kind of Love?
When Jax puts the relationship on hold...and the end when Lilly goes to his house...
What about Caitlin Kelly and Chris Abell ’s performance did you like?
I adore Caitlin...she is excellent in every narration she performs...Chris is ok...I am sure I will bond more with him in book 2...I may just have a grudge because he is Jax...lol
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I SURE DID...I CRIED, SCREAMED AND HAD TO TAKE A LITTLE BREAK!!! LOL
Any additional comments?

Oh where to begin....Young love is sometimes stupid love...selfish love...expectant love...something we expect to last forever....but is that realistic? It can be if meant to be...and I really feel Jax and Lilly are meant to be...Best friends from birth, they were destined...they fall deeply in love, and date through the end of high school..Jax is a football star and gets a scholarship to a big school...Lilly chooses to go to a different school, they try the long distance thing..and Jax freaks out...breaks it off, but wants to be BFF's still...things just escalate...and the timing is all off, hearts are broken..and sometimes it is just to late!
BRAVO CAITLIN!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND, AND I AM ON TO BOOK 2 NOW!

After listening to this book I took some time to digest it, because well, I was pretty angry with the overall "love" story it sold. Then I realized I just needed to say it plain and simple.
NO SPOILERS. The writing was conflicting, having great poetic themes and flow throughout, then random coarse, choppy sex scenes and language. They just didn't work together. The characters were well thought out and were delivered to the reader in great detail, making it easier to connect them to the story; however, everything that is built up about each character and their wants and desires is broken and cast to the side in the end, making it hard as a reader to ally with anything the author wrote.
Main narrator Caitlin Kelly did a wonderful job voicing all the characters and emotions. She has the perfect voice for a young adult--truly bringing the character of Lily alive; and it really helped me stay engaged in the book I just wanted to turn off. I enjoyed the few times we heard Chris Abell's point of view for the character Jax. His characterization and vocal expressions were spot on.
Overall I was truly disappointed with the book. I heard there was a sequel and I'm really not interested.
