Light porn not great story not enough character build, extremely crude.
The narrator was acceptable.
I thought maybe this would be different that Fifty but it was very similar as far as I was concerned. I was disappointed in all of the bickering that went on in the book. This was such a turn off that I will not be reading book two or three.
I couldn't relate to this book. At all. I would recommend this book to young people who've had traumatic sexual experiences and they want to see how NOT to act.
Probably not, unless it was on sale and I was desperate for something to listen to.
She did fine as the voice of Ava, but not so much as Gideon.
I would have cut a few of the, "I'm screwed up so I'm running away" scenes.
Yes! If you liked FSOG, you'll love this. Christian Grey has nothing on Gideon Cross!
The first time Gideon uttered "crossfire" and it meant something so much more than when Ava said it. I mellllted!
Jill Redfield was an amazing narrator. The story is great. The characters are awesome and well developed. I couldn't stop listening!
Old to Audibles. New to actually purchasing books. Love my min vacations each story brings.
This book was great. QUITE a distracting read for someone who listens only while working and driving to and from work. But it certainly takes your mind off whatever ails you. ;) Book 1 was a hit for me.
I LOVE the persons voice used for this read. I worked fabulously and was so on cue.
Since I read kind of monotone. She brought the life that would of been lost with me reading just words. I LOVED listening to this read.
Many... The reader just changed the mood and tones perfectly. Like you were there. I loved it.
Nope. Just hoping the next 2 books are just as good. :)
The story is so interesting and had me hooked for more.While it was definitely a little heavy with their sex scenes, it definitely set the scene of how connected both Ava and Gideon were with each other.
Definitely satisfies 50 withdrawals. I think the genre in general lacks quality. Very much a fantasy and certainly sexy. I listened to the entire series in just days. I do plan on reading the next installment so that says something! In terms of narration, I got used to it but at first I was really turned off. I noticed that the tone differentiation between some of the characters was at times forgotten which resulted in me being confused a bit. In general, her voice lacked the feeling that the narrator of 50 had.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
It is at about the 50% level. It is not the best book I have ever heard but it is definitely not the worst.
I have listened to the Renegade Angel books and I loved book 2 of those. I think the Renegade Angel book had more substance and a better storyline.
I find this series lacking more of the story about the two characters. While it is a good storyline I would appreciate it if she would actually get to the story. The sex scenes take over the entire book and I mean like most women I love a good steam but geesh tell me what happened, what is going to happen, give me some info to get to know these people.
Sighing...ok even still I think the story here will grow to be important but I do not think it takes 95 books to get it out. I am hoping this improves throughout the series.
Absolutely! I actually like Jill's other performances I have heard better but I do not think that is anything against her. She cannot help that she is moaning for 97% of the book. Even still Jill is great.
There were a few points that were sweet especially when Gideon is amazingly kind to Ava. I do really enjoy how they strive to look out for each other, even while they are driving the other person freaking nuts.
I don't know, I felt like I almost needed a therapist reading this. And please do not take this as I regret listening to it because I don't... I mean I even bought the second book in the series. But you do need to know that this is an emotional roller coaster. It does have some pretty graphic sex scenes. There are strong references to child sexual abuse in this book and if you are very sensitive to this then you should not read it. I will admit I was a bit leery myself because of that fact.
All in all though, I would recommend this book because it definitely makes you want to hear more to learn more about these people that you begin to care for over time. It is not too expensive so I would recommend spending cash on it and using your credit for something more expensive.
