My rating: 2 of 5 stars
The blurb and title drew me in; the actual story was a painful experience. At 11 hours and 20 minutes, this is a fairly long book. Given what I did listen to, I can’t imagine what could be interesting enough about these characters and their story to fill another 8 hours.
The drama was way over the top. Seriously, soap opera levels. The emotions and feelings fluctuated so often that I got whiplash. One minute, MC1 is so in love with MC2 that he wants to marry him. The next, he’s questioning their relationship. MC2 misses MC1 so much, one minute. Then, MC2 is annoyed with MC1’s clinginess. These wishy-washy feelings veer from one extreme to the other and back again numerous times. Figure it out, guys!
This story seems to be filled with toxic relationships not just between the MCs. The minor characters meddle and cause their own unnecessary drama. I just didn’t get anyone’s motivation.
There is also a lot of telling rather than showing, and the use of the words “rod” and “member” would have been funny had the author intended so.
I did enjoy the narrator, who was new to me. Great voice and inflection.
I would recommend to those considering reading True Faith to read the first book in this series, Just Like Heaven, as there is reference to some important events in Book 2.
