Publisher's Summary

Diner waitress Allison Abraham had no idea her mundane life was about to dramatically change the day she serves a devastatingly handsome customer. Allison is immediately captivated by the mysterious man who stared through her soul with his electric blue eyes. After he abruptly leaves the restaurant, she can't get him out of her head. She has no idea that he had actually come on a mission to find her. Cedric Callahan wasn't expecting to fall in love at first sight with the pretty waitress he'd set out to find. In fact, she was the last woman on Earth he should be having feelings for. But his selfish heart had other plans. Feeling compelled to know her before revealing himself, he makes her believe their meetings are coincidental. After a passionate romance ignites, Cedric's lies and secrets are finally revealed, changing both of their lives forever.

    Story
    "Grabbed my attention!"

    From the beginning I was hooked. A puzzle to the end. Just when I had it solved, there was a new twist. There were moments in the beginning when the main male character annoyed me. I'm hooked however, because I want to know Jake's story, so I must continue with this series.

    Story
    "WHAT A JOURNEY, WHAT A LOVE STORY & WHAT AN AUTHOR"

    The Pubisher's Summary captures the premise of this story.. however it was the words, the chapters and the star-crossed characters that captivated me as Allison and Cedric instantly fell for each other at first sight. Furtive glances were made and a deep connection was felt - but loving words were never shared because the circumstances and timing were all wrong as Cedric had a girlfriend as well as secrets - secrets that could, and would eventually, devastate Allison and break hers, and Cedric's, hearts.

    However, first there was a slow climb as they overcame misunderstandings, uncertainties, impossible odds and Cedric's constant guilty conscience because he was naively keeping back a very shocking and heartbreaking story from Allison in order to taste a little bit of Heaven before the truth would come out. And Cedric knew he was on borrowed time - because the truth was catching up.. and it was about to rock and change Allison's world.. as ghosts, painful memories and shocking revelations from Cedric's past would destroy hearts, futures, possibilities and beautiful dreams.

    It was a very enjoyable slow to develop dual POV love story set amidst uncertain and tempestuous seas with likeable characters who finally worked through it all and got their HEA together. There were some touching sentiments, romance, passion, sex, a shocking secret, heartbreak, some unexpected new people joined the storyline and a sweet Epilogue. Good narration did what the Author couldn't do - they gave them voices and brought them, and all the scenes, to life.

    Worth a credit? YES absolutely - I've had a very lazy Sunday listening to this book and I haven't regretted a single second of it.

    Story
    "ENTIRE Memorial Day spent wearing headphones"

    LOVED this story! Could not 'put it down.' Started listening as I weeded the yard, & planted flowers. I never stopped through lunch, fixing the fence, adding all the mulch, mowing the lawn, edging the sidewalks and blowing the driveway. The last few chapters were relished as the story came to a conclusion & I enjoyed a tall, cold glass of wine!
    Great, passionate narrators. Always live it when there are actually male AND female voices. Thanks for that! Love that they took their time & didn't rush the reading.
    Loved that this was a unique story with interesting characters. Not the typical 'cookie cutter romance.'
    Have already started recommending Gemini to my book friends.

    "So Touching"

    This would get. Full 5 and more but I just had a hard time getting past the idea that Cedric wasn't projecting feelings, including guilt when he first saw Allison. Loved the characters, sweet, loving, loyal and forgiving. Very happy with ending and I also like stories without cheating- if there is actual cheating the romance is often taken away. Not so in this story. The narrators were great. I will look for books they have done. Get this book, great story , not the usual. Plot

    "Jam packed"

    The narration was awesome the overall story was good. In the beginning there almost seemed to be too much info all at once but it was still enjoyable. Some of the end stuff seemed to be rushed and not so believable, but even saying that I really enjoyed this story.

    "Heartwarming angst"

    This audiobook was really good. It was a story of past mistakes and regrets, as well as finding love where you least expect it. The narration was well done and the story had a HEA.

    "Gemini was fantastic, I loved the narrators!"
    Would you listen to Gemini again? Why?

    Yes! I loved the story and the narrators! Great way to experience this story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Cedric and Allison! Each of them were just so genuine and beautiful, flaws and all.


    What does Eric Michael Summerer and Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The emotion and depth these narrators brought to the story was one of the best performances I have ever listened to! I had never read this book before, and I could not stop listening! These two narrators are now some of my favorites!

    Story
    "Slow and boring."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It took far too long for anything to happen, and I didn't care about the main characters or their relationship because it seemed all they had to say about the other person for the first half of the book, was that they were so beautiful / gorgeous. If that is the sole reason for someone becoming obsessed with another person to the point of despair if they don't see each other, it makes me hate characters who are apparently so shallow.

    It was mostly predictable and boring. I thought there was going to be a much better obstacle keeping the two characters apart, and when the 'reveal' happened I found it kind of silly, as if he'd just been upfront about it in the first place, I doubt it woud have been a problem at all.

    I found a lot of the throwaway comments to be patronising and sometimes thoughtlessly insulting, for example, a gay character says that his boyfriend has a job as a drag queen but is 'not a cross-dresser, he's a real man'... I'm sorry but how does being a cross-dresser make you less of a real man?

    Characters like the gay best friend seemed to only be included for the purpose of showing us how nice and open minded the heroine was, because they never appeared again after the first meeting. It felt as forced and stupid as introducing a dark-skinned character and talking with them about how great they look in warm colours just so she can prove she isn't racist. These days don't we just assume you aren't racist or homophobic unless shown otherwise? Do we need to admire the heroine because she can be friends with a gay guy? Big deal! The friendship was pointless, the scene with that character was therefore pointless, and as so much of this story did, it dragged.

    I also found parts of the story a bit moralising and preachy. Drinking = bad. Violence = bad. Leaving an abusive relationship = good. We GET IT.


    What could Penelope Ward have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I wish she had made her male characters more realistic.
    As someone who has a lot of male friends as well as an older brother, the idea that men sit around constantly confiding in each other about their feelings and their love lives is pretty ridiculous to me.
    The author seemed to think putting a beer in their hands and scattering the word 'man' into their conversations with each other was all it took to make them believable male characters. It did not. They sounded like women. And obsessed overly-emotional women at that.

    There was also a massive over-simplifications of subjects like drinking problems, violence, and autism. The scene where Alison makes almost immediate friends with an adult autistic woman by the giving and withholding of an iPad as a reward / punishment felt like a dog training exercise and made me cringe.

    She could also have chosen a different name for her hero. 'Cedric' just doesn't do it for me. But that's just personal preference...


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was okay, although I heartily wish the flatmate character had not been British because American narrators doing British accents are almost inevitably dreadful. I have heard worse, but it was still painful.


    What character would you cut from Gemini?

    The unnecessary 'best' friend, the ex-boyfriend, the two-dimensional soon-to-be-ex girlfriend, the lonely diner guy… so many characters who served almost no purpose or were there simply to try and force us to think well of the heroine.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few scenes I enjoyed, such as when they have a Skype call and Cedric raps. We actually see something more from the characters than just how hot or beautiful they are, or how obsessed with each other they are, and get some actual personality. One of the few times I started to almost care.

    "A wonderful emotional roller coaster"

    Alison and Cedrick's story is one that effects you every time you pause listening, more than once I found myself in tears but then smiling manically with shear joy. Those diverse reactions were due in part to two 'very talented ' narrators and to a 'very talented & creative' author. I can't wait to hear Jakes story which comes next.
