I like lots of different kinds of romance, but I prefer original plots and characters with some personality. I can usually even listen through when the writing has clear flaws. But this was possibly the least enjoyable book I've tried in years; it had little storyline and poor dialogue. The sex was steamy though, if that's all you are looking for in a romance novel.
Fewer cliches, more realistic characters and dialogue.
It sounded like melodramatic cliche after melodramatic cliche. Perhaps nothing could have saved it, but the narrator seemed to overplay much of the dialogue.
I read another in this series and really liked it; that was my first Bella Andre. Perhaps the series gets better after third initial book. But for me, this particular book wasn't worth a credit and I don't know if I'll waste another one on this author.
A 16 year old girl, maybe!!!

I'm so sorry I wasted my money and time. That's a couple of hours
i'll never get back.
Didin't even finish it
RIDICULOUS- STUPID- DUMB-WASTE OF TIME- COULD NOT LISTEN- AWFUL-HORRIBLE-RUNNING OUT OF WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW DUMB THIS BOOK WAS.

No one I know.
No I only managed a couple of hours of this drivel.
She could not do much with the storyline.
Don't waste your credit unless you wish to listen to a story that is a total waste of your time. Sounds more like a fairy tale.
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
Neh. I can't say anything to bad about this book. But I can't say anything too good about it either. The premise is unbelievable. You cannot build the main character into this icon of maleness who photographs beautiful models all over the world and is a really good guy to boot, then believe he falls in love at first site with a woman he sees on the side of the road, in the dark, looking bedraggled and beat up. And to that she is cold, reserved and depressed. What's not to love? There was no reason for him to fall in love with her gradually, much less the moment he came in contact with her.
Plus, the whole "I have a terrible, deep, dark secret that I can never confess, and I can never, ever tell you what led me to this point in my life, or why I am bruised and battered, but lets have sex" theme is just silly.
Mainly though, this was just a boring book. So boring I had no interest in finishing the book to learn what had happened to her to make her so dull and lifeless. I stopped about half way through. I won't finish it.
I'm embarrassed to have this in my library. Trite, stupid, patronizing. etc. etc. Couldn't be bothered wasting my time to finish it. I'm staggered that it has received so many good reviews.
I wrote my first book review on the p rebook about the parents because it was so amazing so I have to write my disappointed on this one. half the book was about sex! I don't like port but I love a well written story. it should have been titled sex therapy. I fast forwarded through half the book!
The narrator tried to hard to sound "sexy" and breathless throughout the book.

How about a plot and believable characters!
I could have put more interest into it myself.
If you like a story with basically no plot, unbelievable characters, and believe me when I say..way to much sex..then I guess this is your book! I couldn't even finish it...
