This is a light romance that is fun at times but fizzled in spots. The plot is a stretch. I cannot believe that a judge would ever require a lawyer to babysit her client because the client has negative comments about the American legal system.
If you are looking for serious romantic suspense, this is not the book for you. The plot is cute but just not believable.
I realized that this book was lightweight, but did enjoy the beginning; a girl who experienced a bad break-up and decided to get a sort of revenge by getting beautified and finding a handsome stranger to have sex with.
However, when the book reached the "palpitating bosums" part, I just couldn't go on. I am so over the "romance" genre, and I need book with more character development and more weight than a gussied-up bodice ripper. =sigh=
I quit halfway through and found something more interesting. I'm not into this kind of fluff....
When I bought this book I thought it was a light mystery. In reality, its a rather formulaic romance. While I won't ruin the plot or ending, I will tell you there is some rather graphic sex described. Don't get me wrong, it is a fun read and the narrator is very good, I've just read too many romance novels in my life.
A Man Called Oli
Narrator was terrible
All of them. This book had no story, no point. Oh my gosh, why was it written
PLEASE don't waste a credit on this book. There is nothing there, read A Debutante In the Junior League by Linda Lee Francis for a good laugh, a story line and you actually cheer on the characters. I mean all the characters. This book was really bad.......
Exciting, funny and suspenseful.
I liked that Brandi thought like a normal woman and still had some insecurities besides being beautiful. Her confidence is not conceited.
Brandi and her mother.
When Brandi asked for her mother's help. That was good.
Totally enjoyed this book. It's not what I expected. The main characters were great and not what they seem to be at first. Bit of a slow start but really enjoyed it once things got moving.
I got this book by mistake as I am not really into Romances, but decided to keep it anyway as it seemed it could be a little "light reading". It is more for women than men as it definitely has a female bias to the story, characters and the writing. Everything about the main characters is perfect; the woman, Brandi, is gorgeous, intellectual and strong, and the guy, Roberto, is a slightly mysterious hunk with money. It takes a while to determine that there is actually some criminal activity going on and when it comes to light, it is pretty bland. Then everything turns out hunkey-dory as you would expect.
The one dominant feature of the narrative performance is that Amanda Ronconi has a hard time with male voices. In particular, the main character Roberto, is supposed to be a sexy, macho Italian Count but her interpretation of his voice makes him sound like a Russian with a gravelly growl.
every day is a busman's honeymoon
Exactly, what you need to distract yourself- Light hearted farfetched romance. The father set my teeth on edge, reminding me too much of my own difficult dad. I almost stopped listening because of him. Glad I didn't, because the protagonist perceveerd.
Amanda Ronconni is one of my very favorite narrators.
