My personal reality exists in the many adventures from Audible
This book, as well as the other two Sandra Brown titles I purchased, are horrible. I have never been so bored and easily distracted. Perhaps Sandra Brown is not as great of a writer as made out to be. I hope Audible will allow a refund on these, relatively inexpensive, Kindle Whispersync for Voice add-ons.
I quit reading about a quarter of the way through the book. If you like characters who enjoy pit-bull fighting, kill dogs, beat their wives, or sleep with (and get pregnant by) their sister's fiance, this is the book for you. I thought the main character was a wuss and the rest were just revolting. Maybe it gets better later, but I wasn't interested in finding out. Very disappointing, since I have read and enjoyed other books by this author. Narrator was fine.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Sandra Brown wrote a thrilling and full story that was expertly delivered by Dick Hill. I very much enjoyed the coarseness/bluntness of Cash and the Strength of Schyler. I also enjoyed the sexy bits but this wonderful story is not full of it like some. There was just the perfect mix of everything. Great book. :)
I'm sorry folks but I just could not finish listening to this book. What I've read so far is totally depressing. I thought this was supposed to be a love story. It's more like a hate story to me. The content included racial slurs, rape scenes, swearing, animal abuse, profanity. There really needed to be lighter and positive moments to balance out the dark and depressing. I just could not take any more mistrust and misery. The narrator did an exceptional job too bad the story itself was awful.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Slow Heat in Heaven by Sandra Brown and Narrated by Dick Hill is one of the most gripping novels I have ever had the pleasure to listen.
This novel is not for young eyes. It is graphic in some places, vulgar in others, and drips with Louisiana bayou suspense throughout. Ms. Brown’s scene descriptions manage to envelop all of the reader’s senses while her detailed character development is unsurpassed.
The story is absolutely spellbinding; weaving a vast array of emotions that include love, hate, deceit, sabotage, revenge, seduction…you name the emotion, and Sandra Brown has masterfully intertwined them into the complicated characters that are brought to life –
and I mean brought to life...by Dick Hill. WOW…His narration rivals the very best audible has to offer!
Definitely Credit Worthy
Slow Heat in Heaven ranks in the top 5 audio books I have listened to in the last 2 months. It kept me hooked from the first to the last page with great characters, great story, and steamy sex scenes. Everything you could want in a great read.
My favorite character was Schyler Crandall. She is strong, gutsy, brave, and beautiful. Everything you could want in a female character. She loves her father and her cherished Louisiana home, Belle Terre and is willing to fight to keep it safe.
Dick Hill captured each character's personality with his narration. He was able to capture the dialect of each character and made me feel like I was actually hearing the characters speak to each other. Terrific job!
The slow heat is coming to a boil!
Another great Sandra Brown read. I would highly recommend it.
I have this book in in print for quite long time now, and among my first audible purchases.
Sandra Brown simply slew it clean for me to the point that years after reading it is not enough unless I got voices over those very saucy and very meaty dialogues.
Cash Bodreaux is very unforgettable and made a huge impression on me - smart, bully, calculating, proud, rude, compassionate, gentleman, sexy and wow on the sheets. I love how Sandra Brown created this male character that I'm always looking for him in almost all of the contemporary fictional heroes. His fervent wish was almost buried to the ground but Schyler's love of her adoptive father resurrected his need to be acknowledged as a son. The rawness of Cash and Schyler's encounters are always full of passion - arguments and sensible conversation alike.
Slow Heat in Heaven is an apt title for this book. The twists of greed, crime, racial connotation, honesty and hot romance have equal parts from start to end.
I never lost the excitement to this credit worthy narrator and author tandem audio.
I don't even know where to start! This book was riveting from the very beginning. Let me state that this is not my usual genre, but wanted to try something different. I was captivated from the very first sentence and it kept me totally enthralled until the end. The story moved at an exciting pace while being detailed and descriptive. In my opinion, thats a difficult task. There was never a dull moment.
Ms. Brown brings her characters alive and keeps you envolved with every aspect. Dick Hill does an excellent job with the narration. I will not go in to the story except to say it is full of surprises and contains all the things I love in a good book. I related to characters, was romanced, a little frightened and was thoroughly able to escape.
I will absolutely purchase another of Sandra Brown's books.......like right now!
I'm so tired of listening to popular romance writers authoring "bunk". I'm hearing the same old "cookie cuttter, girl meets messed up man, they fight, he professes his love and they get married". And of course usually the woman is so bitchy what man could possibly love her? End of story? Well...it's kind of like that here, except our heroin, Schyler is nice under all her bravado and uppity background. Warning: A lot of this romance is more about sex, at least at first. But I'm not spoiling it for you. This doesn't mean it's all about sex cause' it ain't. The story has twist and turns that will keep you listening. One moment you think you gotta all figured out as to who did what...and the next you know, you don't. Sandra does such a great job of flushing out her characters, they are so interesting you may love them one moment and hate them the next. But whatever you feel while listening, as the story unfolds you will understand them. Except for a few idiots you may not want to understand. Each character comes to the table with his own story. The author makes her characters in this audio interesting and emotionally deep with back story and motivation. And again, the narration was awesome. Five stars for you, Dick Hill.
From beginning to end, this audio book kept my ears plugged into my Ipod.
Loved it. Passionate, interesting, romantic. True Sandra Brown book. Dick Hill is a great narrator, sometimes struggling with female voices but overall very good.
