This is one of the books that make everyone think they can write. This book is nothing but porn, and very poorly done. Even porn could be written better. people who live unnatural lives.
Start with a story that hasn't been done before this one. Then include a more normal type and amount of actual sex scenes and not every other paragraph.
This one was very flat. Most people can read, but to do it for others to listen to, they need to learn inflection and tonal nuances.
I make notes on authors and readers that I don't like and do not buy them anymore.
A more believable plot
I would just say that her style doesn't do anything for me.
don't know, I've given up half way thru.
I Bought it based upon some rave reviews. I guess they enjoyed this line of fiction more than I.
I thought it was a western novel and I got nothing of the sort. Should have been rate X. Wish I had my money back. Very disappointed.
Someone who doesn't care about a good story.
Anything that isn't from this author
She did the best she could with this horrible story
If I was the editor, this terrible book would of never of been published.
I like romance novels, but this one is unlistenable. The main female character Desi, is so stupid and unlikeable. I cannot image anyone able to relate to her. The premise of the story is awful. I can't even hang in there for the sex scenes. Don't get this book, you will regret it like I have. What can I say besides....horrible.
The female lead character was unimpressive as a person -- at turns whiny and then "daring." The lead male was taciturn while having few interesting thoughts of his own. How dull. There does exist a formula for writing an engaging erotic romance, but the author seemed to have skipped a few essential steps in the plotline, here. Instead, we hear what seems to be wholesale repetition of the same whiny prose.
The book itself was really good. But the narration was absolutely HORRIBLE!!! She made most of the male characters sound like dim witted idiots and Cain just sounded plain creepy. My skin actually crawled during the love scenes. I'm sorry I wasted the credit.
This was a pretty good book. Western...tormented woman meets good looking texas ranger. The story is pretty well developed with a good introduction to the other characters of Hell's 8. Hot sex scenes as well. Weird fascination that the author has with the lead male's thumbs. Pay attention and you'll catch it all over the place. Every love scene mentions his thumb. This even happens in Sam's Creed (next book). Worth the money.
I absolutely loved this audiobook. This was my first listen to an audiobook. I fell in love with both Desi and Cain. I couldn't stop listening. I even listened to it at work. You have got to listen to this one. I really wish this was a series. Narrator was right on with voices and will captivate you.
This book had a lot of potentail, it started out great and with pizaz. As I got further in the characters lost depth. They were hard to believe. The ending was very abrupt and disipointing, it left me hanging. At the end it left me wishing for what this book could of been.
