This story would have been better had there been more lively, interesting characters. There is too much time hearing the voice of a vapid, inexperienced, somewhat ditzy young woman who is the toy of an empty, sullen, perverted old man.
The author could have considered giving more insight into other aspects of the character's lives rather than focusing solely on their abusive relationship.
Listening to this narrator is clear the worst part of the experience. It is like hearing a thin voice bar girl squeak out the dumbest boyfriend story ever. Hearing her channel the voice of male characters is particularly grating and makes those characters sound like Saturday Night Live cartoons.
I spent most of the time listening with a great deal of irritation, mostly because the main character is so dumb.
Dont think anything will work
Not sure just hope its not like this
The narrator was fine
Anger this book was not sexie at all not a turn on

Sounds like an old man molesting a young naive girl.
So far I am not being entertained at all.
I don't regret getting this book, it was a lovely summer read. The writing is repetitive, non-inspiring. The love making/sex scenes - yeah, they're pretty hot and descriptive. I don't usually listen to Fiction so this was a first for me. Took a bit to get used to the narrator, Becca Battoe, by the third book I think I managed it, but then by the third book I was becoming bored even with the sex scenes!
Predictable on all levels. But if you enjoy the Harlequin Romance type books, you'll love it.
Sexiness of it
Yes, to finish the story
Amateur writing and lacks in profound literacy. Redundant words and predictable story-line takes away from the emotional attachment.

The story was good.
I listened to all three books
I was stuck on it straight through
Love the narrator
Okay, if you haven't heard the story yet, you are going to think that I am crazy, but if you have heard this book, you will get this....
Every time the narrator said "OH MY" I just wanted to scream! It was like hearing nails on a chalkboard!
I purchased these books because all of my friends were reading them. Maybe I should of read them instead of listening to them. Because I didn't care for the narration of Becca Battoe.
By the 3rd part in the Trilogy, I wanted to hear more about their story vs. the sex.
I thought the sex 'scenes' were just plain boring. How many times can you hear/read about someone having sex? By no means am I a prude, I just thought that it was going to be me erotic.
To each their own!
Light. Easy. Fun.
Elevator. Best scene ever.
As I said. Elevator.
Just a fun read. Not too serious. Things happen the way you hope they do, much like the Twilight Series. There is drama, but not the gut wrenching, heart breaking, bite your nails kind of a more serious novel. This series is an easy, light, and very entertaining read.
Every single time there is dialogue, it's "mumbled" or "murmured". Not once do I remember hearing a confident verb to describe speech, even from Grey who is touted as someone who is constantly in control.
Admittedly, I probably have no business listening to this as I am a guy, but I was intrigued that a book had gotten so much support in so little time. I was curious; I wasted a credit. I only managed to get through the first half of part 1 and promptly deleted it from my phone.
Why did the main character have to talk like a 15 year old girl? Nothing sexy about child abuse.
probably, I'm no prude. This was just childish and belittling. I am amazed so many women find this enticing.
