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.
Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
I don't think I've ever encountered a book where I disliked just about every character in it including the hero and heroine. Schyler Crandall returns to her dysfunctional family in Heaven due to her father's ill health. In my opinion, she would have been better off staying away. The ending was rushed and unsatisfying to me; there was a great deal of building up various sub-plots, which seemed to end with a fizzle rather than a bang. I don't know whether Ms Brown just got bored with it all, or had a maximum word count to work with, but the ending was far too abrupt. Dick Hill did an admirable job of narrating this one, but that was the only bright spot in this otherwise disappointing book.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Sexy Southern Cajun
It was a sultry southern action packed listen. I got it on the $4.95 sale but this would of been worth a credit. I just loved bad boy Cash. Every woman wants a man like that and of course she wants to be the woman to tame him. Then you have the added bonus of corruption, adultery, and crime. It's my kind of listen. As far as sexual content it's very mild.This was a one sitting listen.
language wasn't understandable at times, and there was unitellingable mumbling. Story was good, ending was suspenseful. Good story line.
I struggled getting into this book. I did not like any of the characters. I finally returned the book when it went to a dog fight. This book is horrible in my opinion.
I normally love Sandra Brown books. This one really deviated from her quality of writing. I also did not like the voices/accents the narrator used.
A little bit predictable but a good story and I enjoyed the narrator.. What you would expect from Sandra Brown a good amount of steamy and drama
