I'm retired and having fun watching birds, playing pennywhistle, cooking great meals, reading and listening to books. Ahhh... life is good!
I enjoyed this so much I had to order the others in the series to read on my Kindle. Foley is a good storyteller, creates likeable characters, and maintains a good balance between steamy attraction and an active storyline that keeps the plot moving along. I hope the Knight brother series gets filled in. Providing the reader is good, I would listen to the audiobook even after reading the print version. Masters does a good job.
The narrator and the story line were perfect together. Angele Masters did not overact (God I'm so tired of Anne Flosnick's narrations!) so I was able to lose myself in the characters and the story itself. The characters were likable and their dialogue alternately touching, funny and sexy as hell. Gaelen Foley is a very sensuous writer. I found myself lost in the moment when the couple was simply kissing! I listen to a lot of audio books and I rarely write reviews but this one effected me. I'm on my second Gaelyn Foley (Her Secret Fantasy) and again I am NOT disappointed. Her stories just click with me. Well worth the credit as far as I'm concerned.
She is just fantastic in her narration! (although a russian accent is not the best) Her delivery of the dialogue was so perfectly affected that I was simply lost in the story. Her manner of expressing emotion was done in ways that I might not have thought to do in my own mind were I reading the story. LOVED HER! In fact looked for other romance novels that she may have narrated but she appears to do mostly fantasy.
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
This was a very hot and steamy romance. Must wear headphones if kids around. Good story. Entertaining. Jennifer
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
I got this book on a sale and it was well worth it. Definitely interesting and was not a bad selection at all. I enjoyed the characters, the plot and general storyline. I would not hesitate to listen to another book by this author.
This book was my first experience of Gaelen Foley and I was very pleasantly surprised. It was very well written and read. I had not read any historical romances before either so this book was a joy in that sense as well. I intend to read/ listen to more of Gaelen Foley's books! I only wish that more of them were available in audio edition as well.
The narration is very bland. Monotone. She has poor inflection so the characters emotions do not come through her voice. They sound the same when happy and when sad- flat. Hard to tell if and when a character is speaking.
This is the worst book I have ever "tried" to listen to and I am so sorry I wasted my valuable credits. I read other reviews and ratings and so I trusted them for a good book. NOT! I tried to be patient with all the smut for 3 solid chapters and then gave it up.Unless you really enjoy that sort of thing do not bother with this listen. There was not enough substance to the story and character development to make me willing to wade and sort through the rest of it. I will delete this one from my library.
