This was only my second audio book. After the 1st, I was so disappointed; I really couldn't get what all the fuss was about with this craze. The story was good, but the narration killed it for me. I figured my reading and my imagination were a lot better. I wanted to try one more though, so I went with another author I liked a lot in print. I have read several Megan Hart books, but this audio book has made me a believer in this form. Not only is this the best Megan Hart book out there for me so far, the narration actually ADDED to the experience. I have not been able to put this down, taking my iPod everywhere with me, even when I really shouldn't. I kept sensing the story was going one way, and then it would surprise me again. What an old-fashioned loved story with some unexpected nuggets. LOVED IT!
I was hoping and waiting for Alex's story after, he was left out alone in Tempted. I loved it! it was well written, passionate, touching, everything a book should be and the narrater was excellent. Highly recommended!!
Much better than the last couple of MH novels. As usual, she has no boundaries when it comes to her sexual content, but this story was about so much more than that. Good character development and an interesting plot made this a book I had a hard time putting down.
Yes, I won't hold this against them.
I wish it had it's own genre so I could avoid it.
Yes, she is very good.
I sit down for a nice romance to take me away, and I get guy on guy sex. I don't care what other's choose, but I don't want to read about it. Not opposed to it - just not my thing. Should have a warning. Wasted a credit.
Just pass on it.
I've only listened to two thus far, but it's a strong one that is going to take a lot to beat.
I don't have one, because it so unlike any other book that I have read or heard.
I have not, but her performance was so good that I would specifically seek her out.
I laughed. I smiled. I gasped. I did it all.
It was a great story with a great performance that really brought life to the characters.
I love BOOKS!
Ok, I had issuses with this book. The main character is Olivia, she's, I think half wht/ half blk. She's adopted and doesn't know that she's black until she's in the 2nd grd. It was never an issue in her home, I can dig it. However, I did not like Olivia. I thought that she was weak and had absolutly no idea of who she was. Lets see if I can explain w/o spoilin the story. Olivia was datin Patrick for 4yrs and they became engaged. They didn't sleep together the whole 4 yrs, and then she finds out that Patricks gay and that he's been sleepin around on her. A cpl of yrs later they become besties. She hangs w/ him, his boyfriend, and all of their friends. She's a Hag. She meets Alex who is also gay, through Patrick and they become close.(I see a pattern, here) Patrick hurt her, and she does whateva he asks her to do, bc she's still in love w/ him. (Yes,weak). She has some issues w/ Alex, but she won't just come out and ask him about them. Things you really need to be askin when ur likin someone. She talks about how she doesn't know who she is or who she's suppose to be. Shouldn't you know at a certain age who you are? This chick is, I think 28 yrs old, but anyways. One of her parents is Jewish and the other Catholic. This was the only time in the book that I felt sorry for her, bc each parent wants her to choose their religion, so she's confused. But this is all JMO.
Not sure why, but her books always seem to stall me out. I've never finished one. Maybe they're too real.
I liked the way the narrator changed the sound of each voice. The storyline kept my attention.
When Alex first made love to Olivia.
No, I haven't, but I do plan to. She made the story come to life.
No, but only because of the length of it. It was difficult deciding. where to stop, but very easy to start up again without feeling lost. I like that.
I would highly recommend this book. There is some reference to homosexuals, but nothing that graphic. Very tastefully done.
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!
It was really intense and not in a way that will have me reading it again soon (this was my second reading of it. I really like Megan Hart's Dirty, Stranger and The Space Between Us.
No strings. No regrets. And no going back....
"I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark, and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed.
But I can't give my heart to a man who's so...unconventional. His last sexual relationship was with a married couple. It's enough that my ex-fiancee preferred men; I can't take that chance again, no matter how much my body thrives on Alex's touch. I can't risk it, but I can't resist it, either.
"Alex can be very convincing when he wants something. And he wants me."
Yes to the Megan Hart fan...but be prepared to go to some really deep, uncomfortable places with Olivia - and hardly anywhere with Alex and the other characters. There is really too much material to be adequately explored.
This IS the follow up to Tempted which I did not realize until the end.
Yes, she also did several in The Kowalski Family Series [Shannon Stacey] and she is a solid, unique performer.
Toward the end I was actually a bit put off by the amount of 'rough' language and how quickly all these complex issues were tied up.
NOTE: Strong language and descriptions of sex.
Anti-climatic? I mean it was a good ending but I prefer endings that give you more of a look into a HEA. It was probably a more realistic ending though so I guess I can't complain too much.
The book definitely took a different direction from what I expected based upon its description. It was good but oddly "deep". I thought the focus of the book would be on the romance but it was more so about the main character coming to terms with certain aspects of herself and her life.
