I will start with all the positive. This alternative love story is told so sweetly in its own special way. The characters were well developed and I can tell that a lot of cancer research was done with this book. Time passed quickly and I really grew attached to this book.
For the negative there are 2 very big book sins that were committed, in my opinion. #1 Holes. Although we knew Bruno was not in a legal profession, it was not something that should not have been addressed AT ALL. There was way too much focus on it for it to not have caused a complication in the book or for it to have been found out. I hate holes in plots. #2 The cover & description. I know it's lame to judge a book by it's cover, but the cover literally has nothing to do with the book and doesn't represent it at all. As is the description.
So if you are going to read this book, and I DO recommend reading it, please know that this is a story of a woman who finds out she has cancer. She is essentially alone in this world until Bruno shows up and literally forces himself into her life. It is sweet and not raunchy and cheap like the cover suggests.
Erin Mallon is a narrating Goddess. Her tone, inflections, character voices... All of it. Magical and perfection. Lance was only in the epilogue and prologue and I could have lived without his voice. Erin's male voice was way sexier and possessive and alpha.

You will get sucked in and go through the joys and struggles right along with the characters. Chelle did an amazing job writing this book. Listening to the audio will give you goose bumps!

I though it was a good read the only thing it felt rushed at times especially there relationship in the beginning as the story progressed it did feel better and i figured the plot out about half way to three quarters through i didn't expect that type but similar lines
Where does Enshrine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Is up there with the rest. This is the first time I heard Lance and Erin and they did a tremendous job.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Bruno! without the shadow of a doubt, he is strong, beautiful and so damn sexy!
What about Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon ’s performance did you like?
They both did a very good job with the story. Lets not forget this is a very strong and difficult topic to read about, and having to heard the characters made it even more special, that is what a good voice Actor does. The transitions were good and they kept the flow of the story.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Chelle Bliss took a gamble with this book, it is raw and real, not a lot of people like reading about the BIG "C", however she handled the story beautifully and gave us an insight into how someone who has been told their life is about to change drastically would react. But also she has given us hope and courage to face this kind of scenario and has showed us the incredible power of LOVE. Powerful and romantic!
Would you consider the audio edition of Enshrine to be better than the print version?
No, I liked both. The narrators were very easy to listen to & I would find myself following a.long in print when I wasn’t busy. Otherwise I listened to the audible.
What other book might you compare Enshrine to, and why?
There is no book I’ve read which compares! It is in a league of its own! And I’ve read a lot of books.
Which character – as performed by Lance Greenfield and Erin Mallon – was your favourite?
I liked all the characters! As a secondary character I liked Lee the H sister, although Bruno’s mother was a hoot!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were many moments! & I don’t really want to say & spoil the book, this is a definite must read/listen!
Any additional comments?
This book will touch a lot of people, especially those who have battled cancer! This is a heart breaking disease & this book sheds some light on what those who have dealt with cancer go through whether as a support person or patient.
Quite a change of pace for chelle bliss no tough bikies or PIs this time it's an engaging romantic cancer story but one worth hearing .
