Audiobooks to listen to: The Secret Series

Hello and welcome!

I listened to book 1 a while ago, didn’t know what to think, I didn’t leave a review…

But … some time has passed and now I had the opportunity to get the trilogy and oh boy… it was worth it. That is why I do not discount stories, sometimes our state of mind does not resonate with some stories, so I always give them another chance.

The Secret Series: The Complete Trilogy

by Gina A. Jones

Julia: I don’t know what to expect alone at this isolated manor. I’m a nanny for a 10-year-old little girl. Her father is gone. I’m not sure he even exists. Things don’t seem right. There are strange calls, and I hang up. Then, one dark, stormy night, he enters my life. I watch his strange behavior. I witness the strange relationship between him and his daughter. I watch him watch me. 

One minute he’s harsh and the next he’s vulnerable. He tells me he needs me. He tells me his wife is dead. I want to believe him because I have fallen in love with him. He doesn’t know I crave him. He doesn’t know I want to touch him. He doesn’t know I’m a virgin. And…he doesn’t know I have found his secret hidden in the floor of my closet.

Jonas: She doesn’t know the murder I covered up. She doesn’t know the woman I destroyed. She doesn’t know the evil schemed I conjured to lure her to my manor. She doesn’t know I altered her fate. She doesn’t know my true intentions. She doesn’t know I watched her long before we met one dark, stormy night. She doesn’t know the man I used to be. But I do.

She doesn’t know the truth.

Follow the epic journey of Julia Ellis and Jonas Fairbanks in this breathtaking, you’ll never see it coming, three-book trilogy of The Secret Series. 

Warning: This book contains graphic sexual scenes and is recommended for mature listeners only.

My review: 5 stars

Where do I start? One of the hardest stories I listened to in a while … complicated, twisted, sad… kept me guessing the whole time. At times I wanted it to be over, then didn’t want to know what was coming next. My heart was ripped to shreds and just when I found a sliver of hope for mending, it got twisted again. So realistic in many ways that at time it was like a movie reel in my mind. The first two books I judged Jonas, but understood him too… at least I thought I did until book 3 when it was his time to tell the story. The angst and despair, the fight for a simple, happy life…. but he did it… THEY did it, with Julia. His friend Luke is a great secondary character, same with Natalie. Rebecca and Genevieve were the ones that I am sure many detest for their twisted minds.
I am glad I took the trilogy because book 1 and 2 end in cliffhangers and it would have driven me mad to wait for the next story. It is dark, but with a great ending and justice is rendered to those who deserve it. – A great story I recommend with 5 stars

Tracy Marks is one of my fave voice, definitely on my ‘eargasm’ list and she does the many voices with such passion and variation, I love listening to her. Aaron Shedlock did Jonas justice and all the characters he portrayed in book 3, his voice is smexy and delicious. – 5 stars

I am definitely looking forward to listen to more of Gina A. Jones‘ stories. I hope Luke gets his story, but please go easy on him, Ms. Jones 🙂

I did listen to “Love, Micheal” in September last year narrated by Ms. Jones and the author does know how to get your heart going. It was another 5-star listen for me.

Audiobooks to listen to: Love, Michael

Hello and welcome!

I just finished another great audiobook and let me tell you, it was an emotional wringer.

Love, Michael by Gina A. Jones is one that I could not stop listening to.

Michael,

Twenty years ago, I spent our wedding night alone and was given a letter outlining the day and time of our divorce. Now it’s our daughter’s wedding day, and your smile tells me you’re here for more than to walk her down the aisle.

When we met, it was the summer of Shania Twain, the color of mocha iced lipstick, sand and sable perfume, and the summer I became a 17-year-old mother. But time has changed me.

So tell me, why are you back?

Jill

My review: 5 stars

Jill’s story broke my heart, mended it, to break it again, what an emotional wringer. I spent most of the book being mad at Michael and I am not sure I got to like him fully even at the end. It resonates with me because of my life experiences, I cried a few times, I mean really cried, so be prepared to have tissues handy. Jill is a beautiful soul and I am glad she finally got her HEA, it took me by surprise with whom, but she paid dearly.
The parallel running of the ‘now’ and the ‘then’ was interesting, it bugged me at the beginning but as I listened it made sense to do it that way. The advices at the end hit home, I am on a path to learn forgiveness and it is hard.
Thank you Ms. Jones. Your voice is a pleasure to listen to and loved the variations for each character, especially the one you gave Michael.

This was not my first from Ms. Jones and it will not be the last, I hope there will be more.
