Avid reader for 45 years
Last week, I started listening to the Marriage Bargain and quickly lost interest. I can't even remember enough to describe the plot - guess that says it all.
As a psychiatrist addiction is important to me. I am addicted to audible books, kindle books, my husband, and my thirteen cats.
This particular book and writer present a wonderful love story that all young and adult girls want to have. Its sweet, with great funny well developed characters. you will laugh as much as sigh in this one.
It is the first in a serious of books and I have not followed up the next one. We will see if it is as good.
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
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%
