I don't think anything could make this book worth the time to listen.
The writing and the irritating repetitve juvenile phrases.
Her voice and the inflections when she changed characters.
Aggravation that I wasted my money on this and could have selected a good audiobook instead.
A ripoff undeserving of the press it is getting.
Christen. He a complex man with everything a woman would want.........
The low tones in voices and makes it more visual........
When Christen realized he wanted a girl friend and then wasnt afraid to show her off.
I would not recommend the audiobook, although I would recommend it as a book. The poor performance by Becca Battoe ruins what should be an entertaining listen. The writing isn't stellar, but honestly, the story is excellent. A guilty pleasure if there ever was one!
There's a sketch on Saturday Night Live called "The Californians." Imagine that horrible drawl for hours on end. Her voice is much too experienced than innocent naive girl and too girly to capture Christian. Her voice was so irritating that I listened to the book at 1.5 speed just so I could get through it.
I think her voice for other books could be fine, but she was a poor choice for this one.
50 Shades Darker/Freed- I'll be getting the paperbacks!
Erotic wrapped in adventure
There is no one moment ...the moment continues on and on.
It was a very attention keeping story. I have completed the trilogy and loved the ending.
Yes. I just really enjoyed the whole story
the whole thing
She helped the book come to life
A modern Romance
THe story moved very quickly. Really, a nice love story with a kinky twist.
Anastasia. She was very honest and intelligent but willing to do try things that weren't within her past experiences.
When she decided she couldn't stay with him.
Hot, Sexy, Addicting
The main characters Christian and Annastasia were my favorite. Loved the dynamic between the two of them and how they evolve througout the story. Their relationship is simply tumultuous.
Yes, voice was right on with the characters!
Open your mind to another world of relationships.
yes. the storyline was an interesting premise. however, the quality of the writing could have been better and did not enjoy the narrator 's performance .
i was frustrated with the ending .
i hated the "valley girl " affectation
perhaps a movie staring matt bomer and alexis bleidel.
Most likely not, but I don't usually reread books either.
I like that it is set in the Pacific NW.
I was surprised after reading all the horrible reviews on her narration because I think she was pretty good and I am a narrator snob. I am reading the third book on my Kindle and it is not as enjoyable as listening to Becca Battoe reading it.
The end, made me want to listen to next book right away just to see what happens.
Becca Battoes narration is not bad, listen to the sample and you can hear for yourself.
If you are an adult woman who liked the Twilight series or romance novels, there is a good chance you will like this book. If you do not fall into that category, read at your own risk. It takes a few chapters for the book the develop, so give it a chance.
I typically only listen to audio books since they allow me to double task. Unfortunately, this audio version was horrible. So bad, in fact, that I gave up, bought the kindle version, and read my first book in years. The voice was so whiny and catty, not at all as I imagined the main character to be like, and her male voice impersonation didn't help his character development at all. Plus, it made the poor writing more noticible.
