There was a lot going on in this book with the different characters that we are introduced to but it all works quite nicely as a whole. Danica is at the center of all of them. She is a therapist and is a beautiful person on the inside and out but she is buttoned up. She is still a young woman and needs to learn how to loosen up and live a little. Her sister Kaylie is a little too loose and Danica tries to help with that but doesn't really want to counsel her she just wants to be her sister. Then there is Blake, self professed player who does not have relationships, only hook-ups but neglects to tell the women he hooks up with that, so he leaves a trail of broken hearts. Due to a tragic event in his life, he decides t seek help from a therapist who ends up being Danica. I have to admit I had a hard time liking Blake for a while but thankfully he does redeem himself. Last but not least is Michelle. Danica is Michelle's Big Sister and she spends Sundays with her trying to get her out to have some fun. Michelle has an alcoholic mother who is not really a part of her life and so she lives with her grandmother. Unfortunately Michelle is struggling to overcome the lack of her mother's guidance and is very timid. Danica really has her work cut out for her in almost every facet of her life, but she rises to the challenge.
I enjoyed this book very much when I read it and I enjoyed it just as much listening to it on Audible. I only wished it was a female narrator or at least maybe a female for Danica's part and BJ Harrison for Blake. He has a nice reading voice though so I still enjoyed it.
Would you listen to Sisters in Love again? Why?
I would listen to Sisters in Love again. The narrator has a great reading voice and the author is one of my favorites. I love the story and feel like I could get lost in this book over and over again.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Danica is by far my favorite because she's so like me. There are rules and boundaries and you are supposed to stay between the lines and then there are these people who are almost like magnets that just draw you to them and make you question or forget things/mannerisms you've followed your whole life!
Which character – as performed by B.J. Harrison – was your favorite?
Blake. He makes him sound so fun and rakish and just so yummy!!!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I think when the walls start breaking down and they start being more open and honest with each other.
Any additional comments?
I love this author and the fact that I was able to listen to the audiobook while doing my (boring) data entry work and schoolwork helped keep me entertained. I love the storyline and just can't wait to check out more of Melissa Foster's work.
Stars: Overall 4 Narration 4 Story 4
From the start, I was curious to see just how this story would progress: Danica is the typical repressed and uptight character, with a giant case of ‘take care of everyone’. A herculean task, as she has a sister Kaylie that took all of the wild genes in the family. Danica starts out as all points and pokes: harsh and quick to judge everyone she encounters in her personal life, she’s the epitome of someone unable to apply their knowledge to their own life. Fortunately we do see her softer and more caring side early on, as she’s a Big Sister to Michelle, a young girl desperately in need of solid caring guidance.
Blake – oh what to say about Blake. He’s so caught up in his own issues and avoidance of them that he comes off as brash, outspoken, carefree and wholly a player. Something not going his way? Use whomever is handy to distract and make him forget. Not the best quality when his distractions always center on his own sexual conquests, with no thought to after. He was not an easy character to respect, let alone like, until he actually wanted to make a change.
Danica and Blake have an instant physical attraction, but as her patient working through his own grief and choices, the potential seems limited. But, as they get to know one another, the connection grows and the two see potential. Well, if you discount Blake’s inability to keep his pants zipped up. As a couple – it took me most of the book to find the ability to both see them as a couple and want them together.
Narration by B.J. Harrison for this title was interesting. I’m familiar with his Classic Tales Podcast, and his ability to present a story’s emotional moments without overreaching and making the listener uncomfortable is present in all his work. While the character voices were not delineated with changes in pitch and tone, the presentation between narrative voice and character voices did present differences and add to the listen. A clever choice of narrator that works well with the story and holds interest.
Overall, if you are wanting a boy meets girl, boy gets girl, HEA story – this isn’t it. This story makes you work for the relationship as you struggle through (and often want to smack) the characters while they wander from good decision to bad and back to good again. They are real people, with real issues and get in their own way more than once on the way to finding one another.
I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
