I didn’t love this book although it did get better by the end. Not sure if it was Renee Raudman that I didn’t really like or that the story was lacking. This is the first book I’ve read by Maria Adair and I don’t know if I’d read any more written by her.
This was not a good as the first book but it was ok. It was a little too angsty for me. Plus the same old stuff about him never being able to be with her because of his big and terrible secret. That story has been told a million times. And I really didn’t get Paxton’s “problem.” He talked his mother’s ear off when it was just the two of them but wouldn’t say a word to anyone else. So what? He just didn’t want to talk to anyone else and it was made to sound like some kind of mental disorder. That was just silly, IMO.
And, once again, we read about a widow who thought about being with someone else was being “disloyal” to the dead husband. Something else we’ve read a million times.
I did like Liv and Ford; they were a really great couple. And I liked Paxton, too. I liked all the old ladies and their dogs. They were quite funny. And I really liked Harris! There was nothing he wouldn’t do for his daughter, including wearing pink T-shirts and pearls. He was one cool dad. And it was nice seeing Ty and Avery and Grace.
It wasn’t until 93% that Liv found out Ford’s secret and her reaction was just silly. Then the end of the book came and it just went on and on. And suddenly Paxton had no problem talking.
The little we learned of Search and Rescue was interesting and the Superhero Camp was wonderful.
There was explicit sex in this book and the F-bomb was used 16 times.
As to the narrator: Renee Raudman has a fairly deep voice so I didn’t really hear a big difference in the male and female voices. The men could be better. Also, when the book says someone laughed she never does. She was only OK for me. I wouldn’t avoid her books but I wouldn’t go looking for her either. Her narration was much better in the first book, It Started With a Kiss, which I find kind of odd since that was narrated in January and this one on July.
