Love Found (previously titled Parting Chances) by Caylie Marcoe

Love FoundSynopsis: Haley Cavanaugh’s heart is broken.

Shattered into a million pieces, and that’s just how she’d like it to stay.

She doesn’t believe she deserves happiness. She doesn’t understand how to move on while her life is falling apart and her reality is destroyed.

Enter Eli Park.

Eli is someone Haley thought she knew, but who turned out to be so much more than she remembered. He sees through her pain and refuses to be pushed away, even when she lashes out.

Eli’s patience is both frustrating and surprising. Haley was so sure she wanted to go on feeling nothing, but Eli stirs emotions she can’t deny.

Will Haley allow Eli to help her through this horrific time so she can find herself again? Or will she lose the only person who can help heal her heart?

4 Stars for the book

3 Stars for the narration.

I received this audio book in exchange for an honest reveiw.

This book will always hold a special place in my heart because it is the first book I read that ever made me cry.  Not just little tears either, but big crocodile tears most would call the ‘ugly cry’.  So it was really hard when I listened to the book and found myself disconnected from the MC.  We share a common past; my mom also died of cancer so I totally got her character.

The audio book was overshadowed by the narrator’s high-pitched voice.  She surprisingly nailed the male voices but I found myself having a hard time liking the MC because her voice was so whiny.  I have read this book before I listened to the audio which is how I do it, like a compare and contrast of reading and listening.  The differences were very big in my head.  Hayley seemed to be a bit childish in her behavior when I listened to it but in the book I never noticed, I am not sure if it was intentional or not but I just couldn’t get in to her character this time around.

Great book, not so great narration.

  1. I love a good ugly cry book. I’ve only listened to two audio books, and they were both perfect (Thanks Wil Wheaton). I’m sure I’ll hit this someday
