I always like S.E.P but this one wasn't quite as fun as some of her others, this one was a bit too sinister at times. Mostly well written and funny and fun but occasionally not so much. would still recommned it and most likely listen to it again or get the book and read it myself this time.
If you like any of the charcaters in Texas from other books, like "Lady be Good", then do not listen to this book. Nothing is worse than having favorite charcters trade their charm for hypocrisy. This is a story about an entire town forcing a woman into an undesired sexual encounter with a snake of man, just for financial security...wait, isn't that basically pimping a woman out? How could SEP made such a severe misjudgement?
I thought this book was great! I didn't want it to end! Please SEP write faster! I love your books!
LOVED IT.. And expected nothing less.. She's an amazing author and one who always lives up to your expectations!! I've read everything of hers, so I enjoyed how some of my favorite characters came together.. Hope the next one comes out a lot sooner than this one took. I'm hooked.. again!
I am a huge fan of romances and happy endings. I like books that take me away from everyday life and into the land of romance, some adventure and of course happy endings.
This author never lets me down. I love all of her books. I think with this book she was able to capture some of the humor she lost in the last few books that she has written.
This book had me scrambling to reread some of her earlier books and I enjoyed them as much as I did the first time around.
I don't know.. maybe because I waited forever for this book to come out and that made my expectations too high?? Personally feel it is not as good as some of her others and I love SEP's books. I'll have to listen to it again, I guess. But hope Lucy's story is better.
I couldn't remember the detailed histories of the repeat characters but loved it anyway. It is always a please to read these author.
This was a great book. I listened to it in one weekend...I didn't want to put down my iPod! Better (to me!) than the last few SEP books.
She (SEP) did again, another good book I would give the book 5+ stars if I could. Many funny spots in the book and I loved the story and it was realistic--sexy scenes were great also.
The only thing that would have made it better is to have Anna Fields reading it (which can't happen) or someone that gives that "oomph" that Anna did. Shannon Cochran did a pretty good job (I give her a 3+), but I did not get that feel I wanted to hear when you listen to Anna. I kept hearing someone with a northern dialect trying to portray a southerner and it was not all that convincing, but she still got her funny jabs in when required. While I think Anna was a northerner (from Seattle--right?), she got that southern accent down perfect. I suggest to whoever makes the decision to try Therese Plummer or Anne Dawe next time. I wonder if anyone from the Audible reads the ratings.
Despite my critique of Ms. Cochran's reading, I will listen again.
I can't wait for Lucy's story. SEP, hopefully it will not be another year before you write her story. And another Chicago Stars story as well.
