Lately I have been getting into audio books. I mainly listen to them on my way to & from work. It just gives me something to listen to along the way. I also like to listen to them while I walk as well. Don’t get me wrong I still prefer a physical book but I can get behind a great audio book.
The most recent audio book I listened to was Layla by Colleen Hoover. This book tells the story of Layla & Leeds who meet one night when Leeds performs at Layla’s sister’s wedding with his band. From there they connect and a relationship forms. Then one night something happens that completely changes both their lives. In an effort to bring them closer after the incident Leeds brings Layla back to the place where they first met. Layla has changed drastically since that night and Leeds can’t explain why. His plans are thwarted because things are happening in the house that he can’t explain. Like a mess being cleaned up when both her and Layla are in another part of the house. He gets some answers when he meets Willow but he doesn’t know that this is just the beginning of the questions he will have.
Okay I’ll be honest that when I started listening to this book I labeled Leeds as a jerk and completely insane. I just didn’t understand why he was treating his girlfriend the way he was treating her. However has I listened to the book more I came to realize that he had kind of a good reason to do what he was doing. Even though he probably he could have figured something else out had he taken a second to think about it. However I see why he went the route he did. Even though I was judging him I was intrigued to learn more about what was going on. So I kept listening. After I found out what was actually going on I was totally rooting for Leeds. The book totally held my attention. I have never read a book by Colleen Hoover but this book was just great and held my attention. I was really interested in finding out what the heck is going on. I was really satisfied with the results. I will be reading more books by this author.
