My original Show Me Love audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

Show Me Love has a really great premise with a love story that was broken four years ago due to interference on the part of outsiders unbeknownst to Jared and Dara, whom are at the center of this love story. Now as they meet up again, they begin to work through everything that happened and how they may have misperceived what occurred during their first chance at love. As the set of circumstances come to light on their separation four years ago, they also face new complications with Dara's soon to be adopted son, Chad, and other family and friends issues. Dara's dad, Loren, and Jared's brother, Jarvis, played a big part in their separation four years ago and continue to be an issue of contention with the relationship today. Dara does have a really great support system in her sisters and friends and I really enjoyed their scenes of fellowship.

For those who may be interested as this is tagged as a contemporary Christian romance, the relationship moved really slow in terms of physical contact in line with traditional Christian values as there was only hand holding, kisses to the forehead, and things of that nature as they move through their courtship. There is quite a bit of deception by some of the characters in the book, but they do look to their faith for answers.

I believe I really would have liked the story and I was intrigued at the beginning, but the writing style didn't have a continuous flow. There seemed to be a lot of forced adjectives to describe a scene or moment that were distracting. The most distracting part of this audio book was definitely the narration. It was choppy and slow. The narrator, Amanda Fugate-Moss sounded bored and it was often difficult to differentiate the characters aside from that of the children. I would consider another story from this author if there was a change in the narrator or I heard a vast improvement in a sample listen.

Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator. ( )
