mainly read romances and books for a book club that take me all over the map.
Listened to this one for the fourth or fifth time this weekend and still enjoyed it. The story starts to flesh out some of how society is changing as the industrial revolution is underway contrasting entrepreneurs with traditional aristocracy. Annabelle and Simon are wonderfully memorable characters. The supporting cast sets up the Wallflowers Series very nicely. If you enjoy the idea of getting lost in a world filled with ballrooms, beautifully gowned women and an alpha male staking his claim this should be on your download list.
While this wasn't epic, it was a really cute read. I laughed often through out the book. I loved the story of the 4 girls, and their friendship. Simon was a great character as well - but lost a small bit of appeal at the end. He seemed to simmer down at the end of the story, and.. well, - I kinda liked him untamed, lol.
I would recommend the book - I liked it and am headed off for the next book in the series.
I read the entire series. It was wonderful the way references were made to the characters from the previous books.
When Daisy tried to make Matthew jealous. Then she realized she was bored to tears with the Lord she had enlisted to help her with her scheme.
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful.
Yes, but I didn't want it to end, so I slowed the process down.
So far I have listened to 10 audiobooks and this one ranks closer to the bottom than to the top.
The older American sister was my favorite character. She was fun loving and willful and I look forward to learning more about her in the next book in the series.
She brings an additional level to the characters that was a treat to listen to. With a minor inflection, I knew I was listening to a completely different character. She did a great job.
Not in particular.
As far as romance novels go, this one had stronger characters and a believable plot. Parts of it were quite predictable, but the author did such a great job creating a relationship between the wallflowers that I plan to listen to the next book in the series.
I'm not much of a romance fan, but I started listening to the Wallflower series based on a friend's recommendation. I have to admit that I throughly enjoyed this book, and the complete Wallflower series. The romance/love affair part of the story I thought was secondary to the friendship element. I love the relationship Lisa Kleypas created between the four "Wallflowers". It was very believable and realistic.
I chose this book just to try some new genre for me. I was pleasantly surprised. Listened to it in two parts on a particularly long car trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. A nice casual listen, no plots to follow or complex theories to work out.
It has been a while since I've listened to a Romance novel, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
The author gave us 3-d characters that we could love, identify with, and hate. There was a good tension between our heroes and a nice intimate description that was loving, rather than X-rated.
The narrator was great! She brought the characters alive!
I would recommend this book. It stands out in this genre.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
When I saw that some of the Wall Flowers series books are being offered in audiobook format I was thrilled. After listening to this, more than once, I have to give this my highest recommendation possible. If you like beautiful romance with great sex, and if you like excellent narration, you will not regret purchasing this audiobook. I am waiting anxiously for the remaining Wall Flower books to become available in audiobook format as well.
It started a little slow. It finally picked up and was relatively good. I would recommend it but I didn't have to drive around the block to get to a stopping spot.
Rosalyn Landor's voice and narration are absolutely perfect for this book. Her American accents are hilarious (in a good way) and her pitch and timing are wonderful. I find myself laughing a LOT in this book, which is unusual for a romance. The story is funny, cute, and everything you want from escapism. I'll be looking for more from both the author and the narrator.
