Book & Audiobook Review
The bad girl gets what she deserves!
Overall Performance Story
If you could sum up Up In Flames in three words, what would they be?
Surprising, captivating, sexy!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Up In Flames?
The most memorable moment in this story was every dream Nan had with Gannon. Oh. My. God. They were HOT!! *chuckles* Yeah, I know, there’s more in the story than just sex. Ok, aside from those sex dreams, I loved the gift Nan got at the end of this book. I loved she got a redemption that suited her so perfectly. She never changed into a good girl, she remained being the bitch we all loved to hate, but getting to get to know her from her own head was awesome. There are layers and layers in her personality that I loved to know about. She was strong but insecure. She was stubborn and independent but at the same time she felt good with the way Gannon treated her. And most of all, she had a heart. Not as white and pure as we are used to in the “usual female character” in a romance novel, but she had her heart, which had been broken so many times and she finally got the chance to heal it. I’m happy she got that chance. She felt so real for me. Real people aren’t white or black, real people have infinite shades, some darker and other clearer, but shades anyway, and that was Nan.
There were a lot of cameos in this book. My favorite was Captain. HE WAS AWESOME! I was happy when I got to his chapter’s POV!! It was a huge surprise for me, I didn’t expect it. I even danced a little on my chait *chuckles* Reading a little about him after his HEA was great. And of course Nan’s brother, Rush was there a lot. I haven’t read the books that started this awesome series, but I’m sure I will, because in every book I read of The Rosemary Beach series, Rush and Blaire’s love is so beautiful and awesome, that I WANT to experience from the beginning.
I loved, loved, loved Sophie and Jeremy’s narrations. Their voices were soft and melodic. Sophie had the perfect tone of voice for Nan and when she was narrating for Cope and Major, she was great, but my favorite was when she was talking for Nan’s nephew with the cutest voice ever. Jeremy did great for all the male characters he narrated: Major, Cope, Mase, Captain. His female inflexion wasn’t the best, but I got used to it quickly.
Would you consider the audio edition of Up In Flames to be better than the print version?
For me both editions are equally good, they complement each other. I like to read and listen at the same time and with this book it was great. I loved the dual (multiple) POV and that each section/chapter had the label for whose chapter it was, especially for the male’s POV, because the narration was made only by Jeremy for all men.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
All in all Up In Flames is a great story, full of surprises, a little drama and suspense, a love triangle, and the greatest redemption for the baddest bitch of Rosemary Beach, Nan. 100% Recommended.
