I really enjoyed this story line, had me interested from the beginning. The narration was distracting, I prefer when they have a woman reading the women's parts, and men reading the men's part. All in all a good listen though.
Got trashy by the 3rd chapter. Never listened to the rest. If you like good, clean books, don't do this one. Save your money.
Generally, I find Nora Roberts a good storyteller and I have enjoyed some of her books a great deal. This was not one of them. I am guessing this was one of her earliest books, referring as it does (in the story) to old technology like Walkmans. The writing is awkward, saccharine and immature. But the worst part of all was the narrator, whose voice sounded like something from a 1950's movie. Every time the narrator said one of the main character's names -- "Skimmerhorn" -- in that breathless little voice I wanted to smack her, so awful and contrived did it come across. And seriously: who would name a character Skimmerhorn anyway?
Everything. Her voice(s) and "over performance", her pacing. Sandra Burr was absolutely awful and I will go out of my way to avoid any book narrated by her in the future.
If you're a fan of Nora Roberts current books, I would strongly encourage you to avoid this older book with it's stereotyped, flat characters, silly dialogue and boring-as-hell storyline. It is terribly dated and a real waste of a credit. I could not finish it.
This book wasn't terrible, but terribly annoying. In real life, I don't think people constantly call their love interest by their last name and if I heard it once in this book, I heard it one hundred times. The story is okay though.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
too much boring sex, too much violence, would have been a better story with out all the sex and violence
