I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Keeping in mind that with the price of 1 credit, you are being somewhat entertained for 14 hours, I would say that Buckhorn Beginnings is definitely credit worthy.
The first 6 + hours: Sawyer's story, is very good, and I really enjoyed it. The Hudson's are an endearing band of brothers, with one exception being Morgan, who is second son, and therefore the second half of the book. He is a somewhat unappealing, controlling man, whose temperament is grouchy and his method of dealing with people is intimidation.
I am on Chapter 11 of 14 in the second half of Buckhorn Beginnings, and am having trouble finishing it. Morgan's story is too predictable, and cliché'. Isabelle Gordon is just OK as the narrator. I actually hate her voice for Morgan. Her interpretation of the other brothers is better, but having Morgan as the main character of the second half...and having to listen to him so much...his (her) voice is really grating.
Team Sawyer is the definite winner. Most will enjoy the first half of this book...the second half...not so sure.
thought I had hit a back button when got to end of epilogue and it went back a whole 1hr and repeated and then at end of that epilogue had the music .... needs to be fixed.
The storyline was shallow - she could have done much more with this story!
She talked way too fast; didn't distinguish between characters so it was really hard to follow; and she did an overall poor job.
Disappointment - what a waste of time and money.
Overall, I would say this book was a fun, light, easy read. I sometimes found the narrator's style slightly dramatic, and at one point I heard her swallow. But, the thing that kind of irritated me was the main character, Honey Malone. She just didn't come across as being very smart. However, some of the other characters are interesting. In fact, my favorite character was the teenage son.
For the most part, this was a decent audiobook. I just recommend waiting until it's on sale to purchase it. I wouldn't waste a whole credit on it.
How the author basically had two seperate stories under one cover was great.
I'd say having a woman in a strictly man only zone left some pretty funny moments in the stories.
I'd say Honey was my favorite character. I connected with her the most I guess because I'm just as suburn and independent as she is.
I did listen to it all in one sitting.
I like the story line of these two stories. I will deffinately put more books from this author into my wish list to find out what happens to the other brothers to see what woman will come along to tame the rest of men under one roof. :D
Oh my this was good! Such a good story & great descriptions of...EVERYTHING! I love this brothers...on to the next one! I was so sad when this ended...
I think this book rates in the top ten. I can't do better since I have quite a few favorites.
Sawyer because he seemed so caring and rugged.
She is very good at different characters. I listen to books at work and a good narrator makes all the difference. Would listen to other books by her anytime.
I am greatly looking forward to the rest of the books in this series. I love that some of my favorite authors are having more of their books come out on audio.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
reader Isabelle Gordon brings the best out of Ms Foster Buckhorn characters
A.G Akin Dragon series; strong male characters
reader has a rich male voice and brings the hero's to life
please have ms gordon read more of ms Foster's books; Gabe and Jordan story.
I really liked this book. It was actually like two books in one the way one characters story seemed to end and anothers began. I would like to see a series with all the brothers.
Classic Nora Roberts. As always, fun, interesting, feel good story. But that voice? I dont' know if I can listen to the rest of the series with that whiny attempt at a woman's or child's voice. Love Nora, hate the voice.
