This was an unpleasantly disturbing story about injustice and the woman who happily sleeps with the man who perpetrated the injustice. No plot twists can make up for the fact that the heroine falls in love with an arrogant, powerful man who abuses his influence and tries to control her world.
I despise the author who writes about women and men without any integrity and who are ruled by their genitalia. These characters are both absurd and contemptible.
The characters are so well matched. The attraction intense and the hero a typical southern charmer.
Gray Roulliard. All man, all Sex.
My favorite scene is when Gray catches Faith by surprise on the streets of New Orleans and ravishes her.
When Gray stood up to his mother toward the end.
I've re-read this book probably 10 times throughout my lifetime. Listening to it made it even more enjoyable.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
This was an ok listen, not credit worthy though. I don't know the copyright year of this book but with no cell phones or internet it must be really old an updated version of the story could really make the difference.
This was a really good listen. A couple of other Linda Howard books were ok but this was a really good story and worth a credit.
Yes. I have already listened to it several times. It is a very exciting and entertaining story and Ms. Ross is easy to listen to. The plot has it all: romance, sex, mystery, difficult family relationships. the rich and the poor, a riveting climax.
Kiss Me While I Sleep. Linda Howard is a great story teller. I can't get enough of her books.
I don't believe I have listened to Natalie's performance before but she has a wonderful voice. Unlike so many other readers, she was able to pull off the southern accents without driving me crazy (I am from the south)!
Yes. I was very moved by the scene where the Devlin family was humiliated by being thrown out of their home in the most degrading manner.
Both the leads, Gray and Faith, are very likable and believable characters and I loved their story!
Ok- Gray may be “sexy” but he’s a narrow minded, self-important ass! I can’t stand the family with all their self-centered entitlement issues. I can’t sympathize with their sad story at all. They’re cold and cruel and think the world revolves around them. I don’t feel bad for them and I freaking HATE Gray for buying into it enough to persecute an innocent person in a pathetic attempt to “protect” his horrible mother and sisters! I couldn’t listen anymore…
No. I usually enjoy them.
She was fine.
all but the main girl!
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
The plot was interesting - the opening scene was dark & disturbing; a family getting thrown out of their home, which is needed to tell the rest of the story.
I would make the female lead stronger
I have not so I cannot compare, but I enjoyed her performance.
Some strong language and adult themes.
I never listen to books a second time
Faith because she had a level head but was still human.
It was ok.
I found it very steamy until the relationship was consumated.
I felt that the ending was rushed, but, overall, I was drawn in to the story.
