Take writing lessons!!
She read material, that in my opinion, no one could have helped!!
Its hard to relate, the conversations are unreal, real conversations with real people just are not so passive. However, someone liked them, I can't fathom how this book made ant best seller lists, it has to be the intrigue or probably the lust factor. I found it dull and boring.
Love listening to books.
Christian and Anna are weak characters without any real depth. They are fated lovers that dance around each other, each afraid to speak their feelings for imagined risk of the other leaving. The whole of story winds around the central premise of trust, either earning or losing.
To accomplish trust, they must overcome their barely controllable lust for each long enough to communicate. It is like watching primates in heat. Perpetual rutting with grunting as the only form of communications.
Whenever they come close to any form of real communication with each other, the author injects a seemingly random and trivial plot complication. Of course, these complications spiral beyond ability of the characters to handle, causing totally implausible make-up scenarios.
I am guessing that romance and beyond (this book is in the beyond category) uses mono-dimensional characters as a norm, but in this story, the lack of any depth to these characters leads to such predictable outcomes. It is truly painful to work through the story when the characters don’t provide any compelling (or non-compelling) reason to like them. I was more interested in the side characters. In fact, I felt Taylor was a more interesting character than his boss.
I do see why some might enjoy the attempted romance of the story. Grey is the pinnacle of perfection to some. Endless skills in nearly everything and endless money to pursue them. Of course with little or no time commitments.
I cannot recommend this book.
I think the terriible writing makes for unbearable narration. I couldn't listen for more than 2 minutes. Its not an appropriate book for audio.
she wasn't the issue. It was the writing.
no idea, I couldn't listen for more than 2 minutes
please refund me.
The Story is ok, but the character's have same conversation over and over.
She is blown away about how rich and good looking he is.
He is amazed how simple she is.
They repeat this excitement over and over again.
The whole thing - very sophomoric! this is a Harlequin Romance novel in disguise. I don't know what all the hoorah was about this book - totally predictable and mostly forgetable. I have listened to about 2 hours of part one and am going to trash all the rest.
I was never a fan of this genre.
I don't know - better material probably
The one and only reasonable explanation for this kind of adult behavior is simple. The supposedly brilliant, superrich, mindbogglingly successful and breathtakingly beautiful male protagonist who wastes a whole lot of time and effort on sex games with a birdbrained, infantile, yet legally adult female got to be a closet pedophile.
Nothing the book is poorly written and horrable story line
Dont bother- can get a better story line out of Debbie Does Dallis
A credible narrator
Racing in the Rain
The worst narration I have ever heard. Bought series and have been stuck on Chapter 3 of first book. Can't go on. Serious casting misstep on someone's part.
If I hadn't listened to it at all.
Sounds like a child.
There wouldn't be any book left.
Nothing about this book was sweet. He was abusive and she's an idiot.
A better narrator
A better narrator
it had some enjoyable parts but I can't say "redeeming"
This narrator was absolutely aweful. I found it had to enjoy the book due to her.
