REVIEW OF AUDIBLE BOOK
Love in Rewind by Tali Alexander
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I had originally tried reading this story as an eBook, but I couldn't seem to get into it.... I once read that some series are made for audio and I think this is definitely one of those.
I enjoyed it but I do think it could have been tighter, some scenes seemed to exist just to lead up to a HOTTT scene.... Oh boy is this a hot book! Not only do I think my kindle got so steamy it needs dehumidifying I also had to resort to wearing earphones!!!! My husband came hone to find me initially listening to the book on my PC while I was cataloguing my photographs, to then hear a rather HOT with a capital H scene and exclaimed WTF are you listening to P. O. R. N.... Omg I nearly wet myself laughing.
Word of warning don't listen to this book in public place's or you will get some shocked looks. Earphones are a must... Or locked away somewhere private.
The voices of the narrator's really brought the characters alive for me.
This is the second audible book I've tried.. The other, a fantasy had a voice that put me to sleep... So one thing I do recommend is to listen to a sample of any audible book you may want to purchase.
Kirsten was great, Emily sounded just like a naïve 17 year of, but also was great at the numerous other female characters. Nana made me laugh with her Hebrew sayings.
Emily initially was rather hard to like, being super naïve and at times acting 13 rather than a 18+and I Didn't get the virginal act...those scenes could give FSOG a run for its money! The scenes before they actually got to the full on "Let's Get it On" by Marvin Gaye (lol see I'm getting into the swing of Emily and Sarah's secret language there) if you're going to suck... You may as well.... You can't say your innocent after doing what Em and Lewis got up to!
And let's get onto Lewis AKA Sebastian Fields. . OMFG his voice! Its most definitely definable as a panty dropping older man! He also did a good job on making the voice's of the other characters sound different, and matching their personalities.
Although Lewis did utter a few too many expletives sometimes during his heated moments, I did find sometimes he came across as a dirty old man chasing the naïve young girl 12 years younger than him.
The usual dramatic tension that is always in a romance book was predictable but had some twists that you didn't really expect. And by the end of the book you are left with a small cliff hanger which will have you wanting to grab Lies in Rewind which is the next book in the series.
In conclusion I'm happy to say that I am glad I took the Chance on the story, as I think Tali did a great job finding the right voices for her characters so they really come alive for the listener.
If you're after a storyline that's steamy but without the kink of FSOG then grab this book and remember the earphones!
Thanks to the author Tali Alexander for gifting me a copy to review. I think you may have hooked me into audio books!!!!
