creative and artistic
I have read some MB books I do like but will be very careful from now on. I couldn't relate to the characters and felt it was more like soft porn--story line was weak
It seemed more about shocking sex behavior than a story.
The voice was fine...
i couldn't finish it. I want to be entertained and this just wasn't entertaining.
This book was certainly not for me. I don't know who would enjoy reading it. It is extremely graphic!
The very pornographic sex scenes!
I have enjoyed other Maya Banks books. I just did not enjoy this one at all.
The listener/reader is encouraged to sympathize with truly sick characters and behavior. There is no literary merit in the story line or the character development. Truly a terrible purchase and waste of time.
The narrator's performance wasn't horrible, but the story was impossible. Not too fond of the scratchy men's voices, and the flat line delivery was not so great at times.
Do people really like this stuff? No wonder our society is on the brink.
Someone into erotica
I have no idea.
I couldn't tell you I was so overwhelmed and shocked by what I was hearing I don't think I made a distinction about her.
The entire book
The description for this book leads you to believe its just another romance book. It does not indicate the sexual nature. I think there should have been a warning about the type of material that was in this book.
So many books...so little time! :)
I'm a big fan of Maya Banks's historial romances, but this one, unfortunately, just didn't do it for me. :(
The overal story was interesting, as Grey, Dallas cop, investigates the murder of his partner. As he tries to get close the one connection and lead that he has, he ends up falling for Faith. In the beginning you get the impression that the story revolves around a submissive and dominant relationship, but I was surprised to find that it wasn't...not entirely.
Faith hasn't had life easy, but has always seemed to pull through. Although strong, and thinking she knows what she wants, her deepest desire is not to have to be strong any longer...instead she wants to be taken care of by someone else. When Grey walks into her life, everything seems to change for the both of them. There were some intense and steamy moments...but when the dominance and and commands came into play...it didn't do much for me.
I really tried to like this one, but it was just okay for me and pretty predictable. I think the overall concept of someone taking care of you down to every little detail got to be too much for me and I didn't really get into the characters. The narration, although she was good overall...in combination with this story, didn't help me like it any more. I would maybe give it 2 1/2 stars, but not quite three.
This was a little over the top for me and not too believable. The sex scenes were hot between Gray and Faith but I could have done without the sex club.
I love a great story line! This book was all sex with a very, very weak story. I don't mind strong sex but this was on the excessive side for me. Some authors have the talent to balance the story with the sex and I've read many of Maya Banks that accomplished that balance...but not this one. The narrator was just "ok"...not nearly as good as I expected. Worth a credit? Not so much!
That it was absolutely disgusting. That it was listed in the Romance section and what it really is is PORN. I've read Maya Banks books before and was expecting something along the quality of her Highland series. Nope. I don't mind sex in my romance books. I love a GOOD sex scene just as much as the next person. I've read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy 3 times and loved it. Why? Because behind the sex, there is a wonderful love story. This book was just filth without a plot. Most of the characters had little to no depth. But whats really distrubing to me is that a young person could buy this book and get an education they perhaps don't need or at least might not be ready for. I'm asking for my money back which is something I've never done before.
She did a great job with what she had to work with.
I would've sent her back to create a story, delete the vulgarity, and to give the heroine a little self respect.
You should create a seperate section for Porn and list books like this in that category. Not Romance.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Yes, the reader. liked the stories, and happen to hear a sample of Coleen Marlo. Yup the same reader. Not good.
Her voice for a woman just is not sexy. I listened to a Sandra Brown, Texas Sage, and I loved the story, but this reader just ruined for me. Lesson learned. These readers can change their name, but they do not seem to change their bad style enough.
if you can listen to the sample, then you are OK.
