I don't object to descriptions of sex in a novel if it is used to describe a meaningful relationship or advance the plot. They can be sensitive even educational. Had I known Harlequin was doing audible books, I would never have bought it. The characters in every Harlequin I have read have no friendships, no problem solving skills, no focus other than lust. The plots are the same -every man figuring out how to get more sex which is supposed to solve every problem the couple faces, and the women saying "no, no" while behaving in a manner that says "yes, yes". These couples have to have something else to do and talk about during the short periods when they get out of bed or off the kitchen table. My mother in law gave me some Harlequin to try and all were the same format.
This scenario has happened to a number of people I know---2 people who dated in high school meet up later in life and are looking at a second chance.
ok, so this isnt gonna win any awards, but after listening to the intense, action packed, emotional roller coaster of the red rising trilogy ( which i highly recommend), i was ready for something short and sweet. this had some hot scenes, cute scenes and fun scenes. just wjat i needed for some light entertainment
After hearing the word erection for the 20th time I realized that this would probably be a book for an 8th or 9th grader. I guess I now know why I have never read a Harlequin romance book.
As a fan of the old-time radio serials, I really enjoyed this. However, there were times (many) where I couldn't follow who was talking or what was going on. Eventually, I'd catch on but by then I'd missed something else. Had to go back and re-listen to portions more than once.
That said, the performances were terrific and the story was exciting, terrifying, and sometimes laugh out loud fun.
