Not a good story line and did not go into any details. The only reason why I got this book was because I was having Fifty Shades of Grey withdrawals, but was not impressed. Some people said that it was better but it is not.
Maybe change the person who read it, sounded like an older woman was reading about a 21 year old girl. Also, the ending sucked.
Yes I would try another book from this author.
I did not like it, specially the ending that is not an ending. Is the author writing book 2?
Let's not pretend we don't know what this book is. First came the silver tie, the silver mask, the hand cuffs and now golden cufflinks. If you have been dying to read another book with a innocent girl and an overpowering billionaire with childhood issue and highly descriptive sexy time in every other chapter you will get your money's worth in this book.
This book is well written and well narrated. The narrator actually sounds just like Anne Hathaway, who has a great voice by the way. She is able to switch nicely between her small cast of characters and has a smooth and natural flow through the reading.
The bad part about this book is that there is not much development of the characters, the author expects that you know the characters like Christian oops l mean Gideon, from other sources. The author also expects you to believe there is some deeper connection between these characters that is explained no where in the book. Which to an extent is fine, but the author still doesn't take that time saved to develop a thrilling plot, there are really no plot twists, surprises, adventure, or even villains (just very subtle ones, which don't count). The plot instead seems moves through the personal issues of the characters, which is kind of interesting but not to sustain a whole book by itself.
Overall, I will give Book 2 a read because the book is technically well written and I like the narrator. I would not recommend, if you are a prude, if you generally do not care for romance but are into some other genre, especially if you hated twilight or 50 shades plot-wise.
I thought 50 SOG would be the only story that had this dramatic erotic sexual couple with issues to fall inlove with. BUT this is another JACKPOT!!!
Gideon, so many contradictions like most men! Still fun to listen to his thoughts and actions.
Truly enjoyed this book because it was just two "nromal" people with some issues. Who doesn't have issues from their past? If you think you don't, then you have never stopped to examine your life!
They meet, are attracted, deal with the attraction and then go on to develop a true relationship that can withstand time and challenges.
this was a really good story line.. Easy to follow and real!!
that it was believable and everyone in the story was not perfect
never heard any of her work
great the way it is ..
the only drawback to this book..... is that I have to wait for the second to come out in October ..REALLY?
Absolutely! The story was engaging, it was easy to connect with the characters (aren't we all wounded in some manner, yet hopeful that the right person will see past our inadequacies to love us and make us feel safe?), and the narrator was fabulous.
It made me remember what it was like, being fresh out of college, starting a grown up life yet still hanging onto the the insecurities of the past. Exciting yet scared, ready to try new things, yet holding on to the safety of old friends, parents, and self protective behavior. And let's be honest, the sex scenes were well written and hot.
No, but I sure hope they continue to use this narrator for the rest of this series. I will also seek out her other work. The narrator for FSOG was so bad, it made you wonder if she had ever had sex, herself, or even knew what sex was ... which totally ruined those books. (How the hell did all the many people involved in producing the Fifty Shades audiobooks screw that one up so completely?) But Jill Redfield manages to do both male and female voices, properly convey the right emotions and tones, has that husky after-sex tone in her voice I could only dream of emulating, never mispronounces a word ... Pretty darn close to as good as it gets!
"He was a man who wanted no complications with his sex, and she was a woman who found sex complicated ... But he wasn't giving up."
Wasn't that a great line in the book?
Don't listen to it while your are driving. Trust me on this one. It was an expensive distraction.
Yes. Romantic erotic and real
Fifty shades of gray,but bared you its more real
In the limo on the way to the party
I just loved it
If you enjoyed 50 shades you are going to love bared to you
50 Shades, but no kinky f*****y.
When she realized she was always running away.
Was going to order the second book in this series, but can't find in in audible.
This book was very disappointing! If I wanted to read 50 shades again,I would have done so. Instead I spent money on a rip-off. This is the same story only the names are different, I'm speechless !
She could have made it an original write. I feel like E.L. James should question the legitamacy of the storyline.
I was pleased with the pace.
Story was very good. Could have been a true story.
I'm not sure. There were quite a few.
I almost felt I was there
Reader did a very good job. Very clear and full of expression.
