I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. I loved everything about it. The story was fast-paced and interesting. The characters were engaging. The romance wasn't terribly mushy; it was sexy, and fun, and hilarious. I loved it
I loved the group interactions. The dialogue was really funny, and the narrator delivered the lines perfectly.
My favorite scene was at the end when Sophie and Phin's mother confronted the
“They’ll see and they’ll know and they’ll say,’Why she wouldn’t even hurt a fly.’” “We all go a little mad sometimes.” (Psycho)
If you haven't read this book already and you enjoy romantic comedy in any format, then this book is definitely for you. This was the first book that I listened to by Jennifer Crusie and I became an instant fan. I've since listened to all of her books several times over (including this one) and there even better the second time around. This is not a waste of money and you'll listen to it again and again.
This is one of my all time favorite books. I can listen to it again and again. My all time favorite reader too...
I find the family of con artists in this series to be rather boring. Jennifer Crusie seems to repeat herself a lot in these books as well. If it hadn't been on sale, I would have been even more disappointed...
I loved this book when I read it a year ago, and I loved the audiobook as well.
If you like Crusie, it is very different from, and nowhere near as good as "Bet Me" but it still deserves 5 stars! It has humor, likeable characters and lots of excitement!!! More passion and less romance than "Bet Me".
The narrator did the secondary characters' voices really well, too, although not so much the male lead
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
... my favorite combination.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Sometimes you just need a book that you don't have to take seriously. And there is no way to take this book seriously.
I love the Dempsy family. They are about as disreputable as it gets. And Temptation, as towns go, is pretty dysfunctional. When you add quick-witted dialog and a great narrator, it makes a very entertaining book.
I loved the chemistry between the two main characters as well as all the crazies orbiting around them.
Cruise can be inconsistent. Never bad, but not always good. She out does herself in this and especially in the sequel - Faking It. I wish she wrote more books about the Dempsy family. They are her best characters by far.
I couldn't listen to this book because of the narrator.
I love Jennifer Cruise other books.
Humorous, Secretive, Seductive
My favorite character was Sophie. I wish she would have used more of the Dempsey ways and steps to get things, but I thought that she was fun and really enjoyed the connection between her and Phin. Amy definitely made her a push over with their relationship with each other. It made me mad when Amy always made her feel bad about having a life when she wanted to go to LA and Sophie was still unsure of what she wants to do. Although, I did love the connection and family togetherness that Sophie, Amy, and Davey all had with each other. Each with their own quirks.
I think that she did a great job at Victoria Mayor Tucker's mother. She, Aasne, did so well at portraying her as the high class, upper bureaucracy, and getting what she wants lady. She was sweet but icy cool. She would have intimidated me!
I thought the bedroom scene with throwing objects was funny and sexy and so much fun!
I love the Dempsey's and would love to see the story of Amy after leaving Temptation.
I liked the story and characters. It has some mystery added in with the romance and some funny cute parts too.
I have literally a few thousand audible books, I have Parkinson's, always an avid reader. I tend toward horror, paranormal, love Vampires .
Temptation is just the name of the town. The two best friends, Thelma and Louise style just go for it. Along the way there are too many odd characters , and odd happenings. So the girls find something to keep them occupied. Thoroughly enjoyed this little book by Jennifer Cruise.
