I loved the story and the banter between Emily and Jamieson. Emily comes from a different background to Jamieson and is unaffected by his wealth, power and position. She is strong and confident and willing to voice her objections. She is also pulls Jamieson out of his comfort zone.
In places I thought the book repeated itself. Plus there was a lot of eye rolling.
Would love to hear the story of the rest of Jamieson's family.

The wolves story.

The two books, in this series, that I have listened to, have been enjoyable and easy to listen to. The story is not only about the 2 main characters but the whole wolf pack. The finding of the "mate" usually occurs in the first few chapters, however the rest of the book deals with the subplot.

listened to a 2nd time.

Enjoyed the story, the narration and the characters. Despite some people finding the story triggering, I did not. After all it was a story about love and no matter the age, people will give up everything for it.

More than just sex.

This is a great story. It is different from the usual lust at first sight, sex , sex and more sex and they live happily ever after.
I enjoyed hearing about the main characters lives, challengers they had, a who done it, a baby and dealing with changes in their lives.
The narration was good.

For those who like this type of story, this one ticks all the boxes. It is an easy listening story, without being overly angsty hot or over the top. The narration is good, but not great. Have listened to this book twice.

Deals with depression and suicidal ideation.

Although this book delves into the thinking of a person who has mental illness (being btoken), it had a whiney tone. The inner dialogue went on and on, which is what happens when a person is depressed and has thoughts of suicide. However if this book helps a person understand a little more about mental illness, then the author should feel good about her story.
The sound effects detracted from the book.
This book did not hold my attention, but I listened until the end. It had a happy ending.

Just listened to a second time.

Leah Raeder has a beautiful way with words. The author nailed the descriptions of the natural world (rain, snow, evening, leaves turning in autumn). The story held my interest until the end.
Some may find the subject of a teacher student relationship disturbing, however I did not. The main character had experienced more in her young life than many do in a life time. Age is just a number and has little to do with maturity.

as expected

This book is just as the book summary says, so don't expect a deep story line and plot. Don't read if you are triggered by men "falling" in love and want the women to have babies.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The story has many levels and has a few insights into other members of the family. On one level, some people may say that there is no excuse for a man to become involved with a women he cared for when she was a baby. I can understand how people who have experienced abuse from this situation, can be triggered by this story. If this was not your life experience, read and enjoy.
