Aside from being one of the most poorly written works of fiction in the English language, the performance is stale, stilted, and awful in general. How this became a best-seller is truly beyond me.
The performance might have been improved by not having been performed.
I'm sure my credit card company might have seen some redeeming qualities in it.
Not a very good story - sprinkled with soft porn to entice reader to finish a very childish story. A teenage lust story, at best, with too much deviant sex to try to make an immature story appeal to grown-ups.
yes! will never even consider reading another story by this author.
the reader did a good job. the book sucked!
The author professes to have preformed each sex act with her husband to make sure the story had authenticity...NOT even close to believable! The author writes of a character just days beyond a snowy virgin and tosses her into situations that a seasoned hooker wouldn't agree to perform, then ends the story with a childish cry-fest. BLAH!
Something more Inteligent.
I listened to the first book only and I do not intend to waste my time on the other 2.
The story is boring, without the explicit sexual activities no one will listen to it.
If the reader knows nothing about sex, he-she can get some tips from this book.
To sum it up: A waste of time and money.
No. I really don't understand why this book is so popular. I was so annoyed with the character of Anastasia, I could barely finish this book. I seriously felt like the author took Bella and Edward from Twilight, removed the vampire aspect, and added sex. I could not stand how weak and stupid Anastasia was. Why do the lead female characters in all these popular books today have to be so ridiculous? It's OK for a woman to have a backbone and some self esteem! Anastasia was unbelievably naive.
I could not stand all the emails in this book. While I can see that playful emailing back and forth can be very fun, listening to the narrator repeating all the information in the emails - i.e. sender, date, time, etc. - was beyond annoying. This in itself really made me just want to stop listening to this story. I really only finished the book because once I start a book, I have to finish it.
No. I did not like Becca's performance on this book. It made this already bad story worse. It really took away from the book for me. I would really have preferred reading this book instead of listening to it.
Anger, disappointment, and annoyance.
Story is extremely slow with about the only plot being sex. Unless you are into listening to that I don't think this is the book for you. Very disappointed.
Narrator was okay.
A totally better development editor and grammatical editor
If the author invest in a better editor maybe
I enjoyed the chemistry between Chris and Ana the dance was intriguing, I didn't like the porn and errors. Both made it extrememly tough for me to move forward in the book especially the errors. I'm so glad I didn't buy this book.
Disappointment at the delivery and anger at the errors and the many times I had to stop to try and figure out WHAT the author was saying.
I would have prefered a more realistic lifestyle. One that mere mortals could hope to escape to.
Most likely not - the dialog was repetitive, the characters predictable. I did like the email exchanges
When Jack was shot
It was not believable to me. A girl who is almost 22 and a virgin is going to consider this contract????
I think I've said all I have to say about this one. Mildly interesting.
Well I can't say I was disapointed, I expected it to be garbage, and it totally was.
I don't think this book can be saved.
No. Never. I found her dull and her accent for the hispanic character was nothing short of offensive.
Anger and laughter. but mostly anger.
Save your credit.
There should be a credit issued for any listener who downloaded this limp biscuit. Mind numbingly slow narration didn't help. I'm shamed for wasting my precious time on this earth bothering with this sorry excuse of erotica. If anything it's anti-rotica or just rot.
Can't believe I didn't see reviews first. Believe them all.
For a really sexy read just pick up the dictionary and randomly look up definitions. "That's hot!" This is not.
Next read will be something from Steven King. Not exactly Brit Lit but at least he has characters with more that 250 word vocabularies and true plot lines that zip along.
Obviously she took the job for the money. I thought I heard her yawn once or twice trying to get through a sentence. Am I right?
Someone made money to keep the economy running.
I've enjoyed not wasting any time considering anything by this author again
My wife already ordered book two of the trilogy. I will pass and go back to a business book.
It was not worth my time, but I gave it a change and listened to the end. My wife also has a copy and she is really into it.
