Not the One (Lost in London book 1) by Amy Daws

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00008]Blurb: My name is Reyna Miracle. Even though a part of my name is Miracle, there’s nothing miraculous about me. My body portrays the tales of my life. Every feeling, every heartbreak, every emotion. Marked. Inked. Stained. A walking canvas of my messed up truth. But there’s one confession I can’t put in a tattoo. A confession that will kill me to tell, but my best friend died before I had the chance. Now I’m left with him. The only one who can hold me in the night and squeeze that spot on my neck that feels like my lifeline between sanity and chaos. But we don’t work together. We’re absolute poison for each other. We’re a stifling, suffocating, sickness of darkness. But I feel safe…because I’ve made an art of pushing people away. Now he’s pushing back… And making me believe… Making me wonder… Maybe, just maybe… I could be the one.

This book was awesome!  This is the first time I have ever listened to a book that I have never read.  And I was pleasantly surprised.

I love this narrator. She breathed life into these characters with her accents, her tone and the inflection.  I believed her when she did the male voices. It was like there were several different narrators, thats how good she was!  I still hear them in my head. I am new to audio books (this is my 4th) but if this is the talent I have been missing I am definitely gonna start buying more.

This book hurt my heart. It was such a sad, tragic story that I thought for sure was not going to end the way I expected it too. I have never been so happy to be wrong!

I get her guilt, It was a real weight dragging her down.  But the real stand out for me was Liam. His vulernability still gives me the shivers. And Hayden’s downward spiral was painful to listen to as well.

The ending kinda blew me away, it wasn’t rushed, like, she wasn’t better overnight. She had a constant struggle to come to terms with her skewed verson of herself she saw in the mirror every morning. It was very internal.  The pacing was perfect for me. I am for sure going to read the next one.

  1. Opposite gender voices are usually what makes or breaks an audiobook for me…Too often I’ve found them to come off as caricatures of real people and that annoys me. I may have to check this one out 🙂
