A better story would have made this a 4 or 5 star rating. The story was ridiculous.
It was ear porn, nothing more and nothing less. Oh wait yes, it was less...bad writing, the worst.
Her tones were awful
I would have cut the book in half.
Waste of my time and credits

Have it editted by a valid editor for context
This could have been a great story, but I couldn't get past the poorly written style.
Other than this series, no.
The only thing that kept me listening to this book was the hype about the sex, which was also extremely fictional, almost humorous.
There was not a real story line to this book, it was soft porn and the author's language skills are seriously lacking
The storyline is too simple and does not have the complexity of a novel written for adults. I also found that James used the same language over and over, especially for the sex scenes making the whole novel boring and predictable.
She did not come across as an adult, she came across as a whiny, high-pitched teenage girl.
If the characters were written a little more human, there is so little focus on them as people and characters and too much focus on Anastasia whining about whether sex with Christian is errotic or abusive, she's a very intelligent adult having an internal battle like a 5 year old.
Chapter 1, boring. Chapter 2, boring. Chapter 3, boring. I could not get past that. The book is written for teenagers and yet apparently has some incredible smut in it, but I could not get past the ridiculous set up. The narrator is also very terrible. She sounds like she should be cracking her gum and twirling her hair around her finger. Awful and I should have listened to others who warned me about this.
no, because the story is not that great
The book consist mostly of the two communicating over the internet
I really enjoyed the reader, great job
If you want graphic sex, listen to this book. The writing is not remarkable and the performance is equally bad. It is basically a sex novel with no substance. I did not enjoy it at all.

A fifteen year-old, and they shouldn't be allowed. If you want a fairly decent book in this vein, try Anne Rice (Writing as Ann Rampling,) in the Sleeping Beauty series. Audible has it.
Nothing erotic so it hardly matters
Anger at the complete and total unbelielability of any of the characters.
I had no problem with the narrator. Thought she did her best with this novels characatures- oops- I mean characters.
An plot would have improved the experience. I think there should be a drinking game that accompanies this tome. You must drink one shot when the narrator says "Oh my". 2 shots for a word with more that 3 syllables.
I was disappointed there wasn't an actual story. I am disappointed in myself for listening to the person who told me this was good book.
The narration matched the story.
The vapid voice used by the voice actor for the narrator certainty matched the vapidity of the narrator.
How could there be 2 more?
she really sucks and not in the good way ;-)
more sex less BS
Becca is simply not very sexy
The narrator's voice, inflection, tone, etc. was not pleasant and kept me from wanting to listen further.
