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.
I love to read romance books.
I can see how this story might be amusing... but the narrator reads really fast and I am having a hard time getting into the story. I have the kindle version.. so I may just read it. kinda sad I used a credit on this.
Yes, I am addicted to Crusie's books.
See publisher's blurb for clues to the plot, but the situational and conversational humor are the best part of any Crusie novel. Well, and, of course, the characters.
This is another that I started with the paperbacks until they kept wandering off, then I bought the audio.
Aasne Vigesaa has the characters and emotions down to a science, and that is great for us listeners!
It was exceptionally put together. the voices gave it a sense of urgency and the story kept you involved. it was an amazing book with an amazing voice actor. I recommend this book and reader for anyone who wants to go on an adventure of passion, mystery, and pure joy.
