UNITED INDIE BOOK BLOG REVIEW
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely loved this book. I got drawn into the book by the reader it held me captivated and riveted. Spencer and Emilio story was definitely told to the fullest and the audio does not take away from the story it actually gives it so much life. I loved every minute of Spencer and Emilio’s story.
This is a story of finding love and finding fate and accepting that happiness does happen and finds you when you least believe it. Spencer and Emilio’s is just fighting the age gap but so many other things but their story shows that no matter the barriers they have that it can be overcome. I love their story because their love fills the pages and it’s just not about the sex it’s about their feelings toward each other and how they both grow in such a short period.
This story was well worth listening to because one the narrator stared he brought out the characters and it definitely did not take away from it. It has join a top list of a few books I would listen to on audile. Cardeno C has gained a true fan in me from this series alone. So if you are looking for a great book to listen to while running errands or just something while going to work then this is a great place to start.
