I found myself wanting my I-touch within easy reach at all times in case I had five minutes to get a Fifty Shades fix. I have read a fair amount of erotica and this just hit all the right spots.
I thought Becca Battoe's narration was lovely. You spend alot of time in the main characters mind and her voice brought the emotion of the passages out.
The only thing I would warn others about is to have the second book already downloaded and ready to go. The first book will leave you hanging. If I would have had to wait for the second book to come out I would have been pissed!
I am so glad I didnt read some of the reviews written here, it might have turned me away from a very enjoyable experience.
the prolonged intraludes and how she wanted more.
I don't, I feel this book is in a class all by itself
When Anastania interviewed Christian.
the love she has for Christian
The narrator is so whiny and annoying! I could only get through 3 chapters before I went out and bought the book. I would NOT recommend this series as an audiobook - I couldn't imagine HOURS of her voice. I actually made a few friends listen to see what their thoughts were and they agreed they her voice was absolutely dreadful!
Couldn't stand the narratoe's voice and couldn't get into the story at all! It would have been best if Christian's voice was a male.
Would have been satisfied if I had read it myself but had a credit on my acct for the second book.. It's best to read yourself!!
Say something about yourself!
Listening to Becca Battoe is like nails on a chalk board. Her voice is so whiny and valley girl like. Awful. And holy hell, i have never listened to a narrated book with SO many mispronunciations!
E.L. James, PLEASE do not rebook Becca Battoe for any future readings!
I must admit, I like a little smut every now and then, so this book was sure to be on my list to check out. It did not disappoint. I was a little apprehensive at first, having seen some of the reviews about the narrator, but I thought she did fine. It wasn't the best book I've ever listened to, but I wasn't expecting it to be some great literary novel. I like to listen/read romance novels because I can lose myself in the story and discover different roles to fantasize about - this book was perfect for that. If you like some spice in your stories, then this is a great choice. Will I finish the series? Heck yes, already into book 2, with book 3 waiting in the wind!
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.
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.
I have listened to over 700 audio books in the last 20 years. This is by far the best series I have heard. Now if you don't like erotic romance this is not for you. No other series has actually had me go seeking out my husband for private time.
I never got old.
