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".
I wasn't sure about this book after reading 50 shades; but i was pleasantly surprized. It was cute & fun
Yes, it has a interesting twist .. Or two.
The poem reading near the end.
Loved the the last scene!
This book reminded me of "Fifty Shades of Grey" the only difference is that it didn't have that many erotic scenes in it. But it was dam good... I just love these kinds of books.
They Were all my favorite because with out them all playing a role this story wouldn't be a good one... SO ALL WERE MY FAVORITE.
At first I had to get used to her voice because I was used to another narrators voice, but when the story went on she did a wonderful job. She differentiated all of the charactors!
it did make me laugh at some points but it didn't make me cry.....
THIS BOOK IS A GOOD BOOK, IF YOU LIKE ROMANCE WITH A LITTLE OF EROTIC PLEASURE THEN THIS IS A GOOD BOOK TO READ.
OK, first of all I'm not usually hard on books. But I just have to review this one.
I bought it because: a) nice romantic cover
b) plot with potential
c) 3 to 4 stars
d) I like fun chick lit. (M. Jhonson, S. Manning, M. Harper. S. Kinsella etc).
What I've got was an impossible cliche story, with totally unreal characters,with not only words but sentences repeated throughout the book, and scenes that intended to be funny and only left me with an odd feeling of shame for someone else....Many times I though of not finishing but did it because I wanted to be fair and maybe later on it would get better but it never did.
The narrator is ok, her voice is clear, nice, and almost always does the different voices, The performance itself is not good but then again, she doesn't have a great material to work with.
I don't get it. Why so many 4 and 5 star reviews? I'm at 50% and I'm not sure I going to go any further. These two act like they are still teenagers. Every time you turn around they're arguing about something that happened when they were young. It's just stupid and goes on and on AND she just keeps doing things she knows will pi** him off. They are both so immature it's not funny. And for her to bring all those dogs into his big beautiful house and think nothing of them crapping all over is even more insane. This book is just to stupid for me.
As to the narrator: Ms. Marlo is always a pleasure to listen to. She gives her characters their own personalities and voices. She's an awesome narrator.
typical fanciful romance. Billionaire falls for childhood friend. Makes mistakes gets forgiven. typical sappy unbelievable romance, most women wishes was real. That is what makes it a good one, the story you wish was real. The only thing wrong is the narrator, she could be good and the emotion and telling of the story is, she just has a very nasally voice that is slightly annoying.
