I don't know why I bought it. I guess I was compelled by the hype and the promise of over the top tales of .... whatever. I hated it. The characters were STUPID and unconvincing. It was awful. Like awful on top of awful, handcuffed to more awful. I'm not sure who the target audience for this book. I'm going to go sanitize my ear buds. In the future I plan to deny I ever listened to it.
This has to be one of the worst books I've ever listened to. I couldn't even listen to the whole thing. A lot of the reviewers complained about the narrator, but I couldn't stomach the story itself. I didn't realize it was basically a porno and not even well written porn at that. The author needs to come up with some other lines instead of repeatedly using the same ones such as "I peeked at him through my lashes". Is that even possible?! I wish I hadn't wasted my time or money!
Like so many others, I fell for the hype. Female co-workers told me to 'stick with it'. Well I can't. The story is SO juvenile. The narrator grates on my nerves, but she's just reading what the author has written. I, too, feel I wasted a credit and will remove the 2 remaining books in the trilogy from my wish list. Everything about this book is AWFUL! That there are women who actually think this is good literature absolutely baffles me.
I purchased this book because it was a bestseller. I figured that if it was, it would be good. Boy, was I wrong. Repeatitive and boring. Maybe I just cannot relate to a stupid 21 year old girl. The story had potential but once again the heroine is a simpering idiot. The reviewers who gush about this story, have no idea what a good story is. I cannot believe this is a best seller. Is it to much to ask for something well written and sexy?
WORST Audible book EVER, he murmured . OK, I'm a guy, he murmured, I'm not the intended audience. I get it. But by the end of the book the main character comes across more as an imbecile than a curious woman exploring her sexuality, he murmured.
To the author's credit, I heard her say that she does not consider herself to be a writer. I agree 100 percent, he murmured.
Read this book and you will never hear the word "murmur" again without cringing.
What a great disapointment.....after all the hype I was so excited to get going on this book but what a complete waste of my time. The narrator sounded like a breathy schoolgirl trying to immitate a mature sexy woman...not so. And the writing is maybe high school level but maybe not even graduation level? Won't bother with the other 2 books thank you very much.
Only gave it 1star rating as I couldn't go 0
I listened to this book because I was curious. I listened right to the end because I was determined to give it a chance and maybe discover why it has become a number one bestseller. After finishing it I read the Audible reviews. I was pleased to see that it got completely slammed by most reviewers, who have recognised it as the rubbish that it is. So I suppose the book must have appealed to lots of people to become popular in the first place, and then, afterwards, lots of people have bought it because it is a best-seller. Its interesting that it continues to sell more and more copies to people who find it to be complete trash (me included). The author must be laughing her tits off (all the way to the bank) reading the damning reviews by idiots like me who've given her their cash. I suppose I should have checked the reviews beforehand, but I don't usually do this because a) I don't want to spoil the surprise and b) I don't want to be prejudiced by other people's opinions. At least my curiosity has been satisfied.
LOVE TO READ. But since becoming a Mommy it is impossible to sit to read a book. So I get to listen in my car, and cleaning/cooking! BLISS
I wanted to stab myself in the ears it is soooo bad. The writing is terrible it is literally if Cher from Clueless was getting it on with some smug jackass. AND I LIKED clueless in fact I think Cher would have been too smart to be this annoying.
I am literally going to see if I can get my credit back for this horrible, obnoxious, poorly written mess of a book.
Someone in high school or a very shallow person.
Find a narrator who doesn't sound like an annoying teenager.
not so much
The content and conversation is so shallow and uninspired, which contrasts with the smattering of erudite adjectives. Some of the flippant phrases seem repetitive. Perhaps a better narrator would have made a big difference. I am not impressed.
An author who knows their limits. Kinky is good, poor narrative, cliche, and unorigional charictor types are not good. There were so many repeated poor visuals such as "looking up through my eye lashes." Nor does the author seem to understand that if your "subconscious" is having a conversation with you, it is by that virtue we define it as our conscience with which we are conversing...in effect, she is talking to herself, not her subconcious nor her "Medulla Oblongata."
Yes. The voices did come off very shallow and cliche but I don't discredit the narrator, that's how they were written.
Grey. Why does he have to be so lame to be kinky?
If you really need sexy...go on a date and write your own kinky story.
