The story moved quickly before you could assume what would happen next. loved the characters, and loved that it was light, not melodramatic, didn't have to sit through tangents that writers get on with descriptions on the sky, or a rock, etc. it was a joy.
The story wasn't too bad; but I wouldn't call it memorable. The narration was certainly acceptable, and far above others that I've listened to. Overall, a simple, enjoyable story, though not one that had me listening every chance I got.
I love to multi-task with Audible!
Although I enjoyed the storyline... it was buried under layers and layers and layers of repetitive discriptions of feelings, body discriptions, emotions... etc
Like I said the story was good, it would have been better had the author limited her discriptions. Towards the end it felt like she was just filling pages. It became a little frustrating.
It was an okey book but if it wasn't on sale I would not have got it
Love to read!
I didn't LOVE this book, but I enjoyed it. There wasn't anything specifically "wrong" with it to make me not give it a 5 star rating, it just wasn't very memorable. The characters were likable and the plot was pretty good. There was sufficient romance and action. It wasn't boring or drawn out in parts. There was just something missing. It is definitely worth buying if it is on sale for $5 or if you have an extra credit.
In terms of performance, everything was very good EXCEPT the voice of Davina, the main female character. Sometimes the narrator made her sound like she was a 60 year old yuppie. Thank goodness, she actually didn't speak that much. It really got on my nerves.
Everything about this book is okay.... just okay. I don't really expect this kind of stuff to be great literature, and I didn't pay for that either. It's entertainment. Just know that going in.
This was the first "highlander" story I've ever listened to and I loved it! The narrator's voice for the main character Rob was all wrong. The voice did not seem to flow with the descriptions of the character and at times it was annoying. Despite that however the story and the love between the two main characters was great. I will listen to the rest of the series very soon.
I didn't make it beyond the first part of this book. The male lead is the happiest-go-lucky highlander I've ever seen in literature. He's better suited to a childrens' story than a romance. The attraction between the two main characters lacks depth, the accents are unbearable...sometimes sounding almost Hispanic at times, sometimes east Indian...rarely Scottish. There are way to many stock descriptions. The writing seems amateur, the narrator is lacking, and the motivations of the characters are underdeveloped. I would not buy this author again.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook- and I always have an opinion to share.
I love Highlanders. And Quinn does them justice in this first book of a new series. The historical references make the story feel more authentic, something I need when listening to any historical romance - you know, setting the scene makes it all more believable. And, of course, the highland brand of romance was beautiful.
The narration was okay but I didn't particularly love MacDuffie's male voices. Her female voices were solid but the male voices sounded awkward. Still, it was good enough and I'll still be listening to the next book in the series.
