It's a dirtier version of 50 Shades. Seriously, everyone jumped on that band wagon. Entertaining read, but same story, just different names.
The narrator was pretty good.
eh. It helped kill time at work.
Not impressed with the book, so dramatic for no reason, makes women seem ABSOLUTELY crazy, and everything happens so fast. You dont really get to know the characters before they jump into proposals for sex and other weird occurrences that I'm pretty sure would almost never happen in real life. 50 shades wasn't the best novel-wise, but I would read it ten times before I take another look at this one. I was really just waiting for it to get good the whole time.
And the voices, I'm pretty sure I might have liked it a fraction better had I read it myself on paper.
Classics, Biography's, Romance, Erotica. I'm a sucker for a good book!
I was searching for something to give me the same feeling that 50 shades series gave me. This is pretty darn close. Very hard to stop listening, finished with in the day!
This book is a erotic romance. It is and has been compared heavily to 50 shades. But it is a different story, I promise!
The first time Gideon puts his hands on Eva. When he drops by before the event and she has just came home from the gym.
Yes. Very distracting to say the least!
Tell us about yourself!
This book is not a light listen and getting through it almost did me in. Both Ava and Gideon are such tortured souls reading their story made my heart hurt. Although I eventually will want to know what happens next I just can't take it right now and need a break before I go into a depression. I enjoy steamy love scenes but I found them to be a bit overkill in this case. I'd say about 70% of this book is pure sex and I don't find that appealing as I prefer a bit more plot, dialogue and actual romance and Gideon's idea of romance was not exactly normal. The characters also use a lot of crass language during love making which is a huge turn off for me.
It had mult books in the series
She was animated in her narration
If they likes 50 shades, they will like this book. Similar but different
OMG - I think I have listened to this book 3 times already and have replayed moments many times more. I absolutely LOVE these two characters. I have been sucked into their world and hang on every moment they share. They are broken...by a similar past...and they are drawn together even when they are not sure they want to be.
Well...the sex is steamy hot...but I really like the moments when they are just together...quiet...having dinner or talking. It's in these moments that I fall in love with them a bit more each time.
Not prior to this series...but she has nailed it on this title and the next one in the series.
This book made me laugh - cry - scream - you name it. I haven't had this extreme of a reaction to a book in a long time.
If you are a fan of Fifty Shades, in my opinion, this book is a much better read. The narrator is certainly much better...and the characters are so well developed. If you are like me, you will be intensely angry at these characters one moment...and then cheering for them the next. I cannot wait for the 3rd book in this series!!!
Great story. Just bought the second in the series.
The characters were likeable and believable.
Ava was my favorite character
Still a love story but with all the dramas of two people with turbulent pasts.
Both main characters were really likeable. You want them to succeed.
She was excellent.
Intense love story.
Yes I would try again. But not top on my list.
Yes I would try one more time.
This story was to much like Fifty Shades of Gray which I loved. Maybe if I read this first I would have liked the story better. Reading it after it was a big let down.
if you are into listening to hot sex....and are mostly just obsessed with sex...then you would like this book. same old whiney type woman as in shades of grey. It got tiring for me. redundant. also so much emphasis on "beauty" body image, clothes money. ehhh....not my cup of tea.
