Would you consider the audio edition of You're Not Alone to be better than the print version?
I enjoyed the audio version, but have not read the print version, so I can't say.
What other book might you compare You're Not Alone to and why?
Distorted Loyalty by Stacy Eaton and Whether I'll Live or Die by Stacy Eaton. Her books are very emotional and gritty. She doesn't shield or hide the reality of ordinary people's lives. It's always an emotional ride and you learn something by experiencing it through her character's eyes.
Have you listened to any of Maria Marquis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Not listened before, but I loved this performance. The only thing that confused me at the beginning was that the first-person male part was also read by her, but later on, I got used to it and was able to figure out who was speaking.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not wanting to spoil the story, but the last struggle was very moving. Also, when Trinity discovers she's a passionate woman and capable of loving and being loved. She was so scarred by the abuse she received from Brendan.
Any additional comments?
Gavin is a hero anyone could love. He is truly a knight in shining armor, but also has a dark backstory which makes him understand and empathize with Trinity and others who were abused. The book was focused on Trinity, so we didn't get much of Gavin, but I hope there would be another story that goes into his struggles and overcoming abuse. Maybe a prequel?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. This was a brilliant book. Any fans of romance should enjoy this book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The book is full of great, strong characters. I really liked Gavin as he was understanding and non judgemental of women in abusive situations.
What does Maria Marquis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I loved how she performed the male and female characters so realistically.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I couldn't put this book down and spent as much time as I could listening in a few sittings.<br/>the story was fast paced and suspenseful. I enjoyed Gavin and Trinity's story arc. Their shared history made their friendship and burgeoning romance that more interesting.
Any additional comments?
I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this book.
I had already read this book, which is a fantastic read, as Stacy Eaton is a retired cop and so brings realism into her harrowing storyline. And although I have listened to a few audio books, they have all previously been male narrators. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy listening to a female...how wrong I was. Maria Marquis does a fantastic job, and kept my attention all the way through. Her intonation and pitch is spot on, and she had me chuckling a few times, especially when narrating a child's words. I will definitely listen to more books narrated by Ms Marquis. Great job!
