From the first chapter to the last the book is very predictable. It is an okay listen. Passes time when driving down the road.
This was pretty good. It's hard for me to review romance books as it isn't my favorite genre. But putting all the mushy, cheesy "milky white breasts heaving" stuff aside, I enjoyed the characters and story. I don't think I need to read the rest of the series, though, as it probably is more of the same with different character names. I think you really need to be into the romance genre to read more than one!
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
This novel had a lot of potential. If I was the editor I would have given it back to the author and said, great characters....great start, but go back to the drawing board and work on the plot & get deeper with the characters. I thought the hero, Nick, was good, but somehow got lost at the end. The heroine Alexandra was interesting as well, but came across very barky & moody...just a little too sharp & curt with Nick, at times.
When the two characters fall in love.
I have not listened to any of Coleen Mario's other performances. I thought she did a good job, overall.
Not really....it's a pretty simple story & the plot was rather anticlimactic.
Jennifer Probst came across as a young writer. Hopefully, in the next few years she'll perfect her craft.
Narrator does nice job on characters and has lots of enthusiasm, but this story has "dated" written all over it. I just couldn't keep a straight face while listening to it.
But it does have fun characters and a strong female lead.
Gust in case the girl next door is better looking than you want to let on
The way both main characters tried to out wit one other
Yes . manage to put the story across rather well
This book was dumb and predictable. Like another reviewer said, it's a cookie cutter romance. You know exactly what is going to happen to this couple from the very first page. I usually don't mind books like that, because it passes the time. But, the narrator really made it worse. She's reads breathily--like she's a character from Dynasty or some other over the top drama--and she sounds like she has a cold for the first 3/4 of the book. Didn't anyone else notice that? It's so odd!!
Also, parts of the book didn't make sense--why doesn't Alexa know more about Nick's life, when her best friend is his sister? Why doesn't she want Nick to know the money is for her parents house, but it's okay to think it was for her bookstore?
There are definitely far better chick-lit/romance books out there.
I was spending a couple of days driving & wanted something fun and easy to listen to, without the need for a lot of concentration. I got this one because it was free with my Prime membership and ended up listening to the next 2 books as well.
Not a lot of realism going on here but adults need fairytales, too. Glad I got them! Made for a quick trip.
This book rate in the top 20%
The two main characters
No I have not
Yes but could not
Keep up the good work!!
The lead female character in this is spunky.... but that is about it. Not worth $24... or a credit. The reviews I read raved it was fun, funny and witty. It is a little, but not a lot. I have been an audible customer for over 5 years...and this is the first review I have posted. I'm doing so because the reviews overstated the quality of the book.
No...just did not get sucked in...
I don't really know...it just missed the special something that makes me want to go in that book's "world".
She made it so the words were not so much "lost in translation".
