A wonderful Melody it is.

I really enjoyed this book. The story was packed with so much in such a short period of time. So well written. I enjoyed every part of it. You don't often find shot stories that have such great plots as this book does. Usually there's not enough time to fit it all in, in a short read but somehow R.E. Hargrave made it work. A great enjoyable mini listen. I loved the characters and felt like I really got to know them. When the book was done I came away feeling like I had read a whole book not just a short story. I highly recommend this book.

Unchained Melody is a novella of second chances. Marshall “Dallas” Chandler spends the eve before his first assignment, as a fighter pilot with the United States Air Force, with a woman that changes his life and haunts his dreams. A decade later will he get his second chance with this woman he hasn’t been able to forget or will tragedy strike?
This is my first experience with this author and the audio version of the story. Being that the book is a novella, this was a quick story to listen to and when it ended I wanted more. The author packs a lot of information in such a short story. I want to know more about Dallas and hope we will get more to his story. For the very quick hour it takes to listen to this book, it covers ten years of events in Chandler’s life, along with a few steamy sex scenes. There are also several surprises along the way making it surprising that it is a novella. I will be looking for more works by this author.
Audio books have become something that I’ve started venturing into recently, because of my added time in the car. Not only was the book really great, but the narrator does an excellent job in keeping the listener wanting to hear more. I found the narrator's interpretation of this story with his inflections and pauses were great at holding my attention. You can feel all the emotions that Dallas is experiencing during this story as the story is effortless read.
The narrator was able to keep my daily drive less stressful. I will be looking for other works this narrator has read. I am looking forward to finding more from this author and this narrator.
