The narrator sounded like she needed to blow her nose. Ruined the book for me.
Someone who enjoys straightforward sappy romance. I prefer something a bit funnier. It was pretty formulaic with the over the top gorgeous characters, including (obviously) the wealthy playboy, needing to be tamed by the girl with the heart of gold.
Something by Jennifer Crusie or I may try Sophie Kinsella
Perhaps someone who wasn't quite so breathy and trying to pull off "sultry". I thought I was going to have an asthma attack just listening to it.
Say something about yourself!
Powerful alpha male...reluctant strong female lead....can she chink his well honed armour...does she even want to?
Nice hot scenes, WONDERFUL sexual tension, and lovable characters. The narrator was a bit too breathy for me, but didn't ruin anything.
I will be downloading the rest of the series ASAP!
The amusing and loving nature of the characters.
All of them! They were all so different and dynamic!
Absolutely, I listened to all three books in the span of a week and a half!
I hated this book. I got as far as chapter 7 and decided my time was too valuable to waste one more second on it. The narrator's decision to make the female protagonist sound like Marilyn Monroe on sleeping pills was only overshadowed by the continual use of every hackneyed phrase you can think of to express lust. Really, I can't describe how silly this book was.
I've never read the print version, but as my problem is the narration, and not the story, I'd say, heck no!
The main character, Alexis, is more fleshed out than the others, so I guess her.
Anyone who is able to read and carry inflection like a normal person and not some breathy, gauzy, over-actress. She makes a good story with pretty solid dialogue and writing into a dramatic, corny, over-the-top foo-foo piece. I'm not even done with the book yet, but instead of concentrating on the story, I find my mind wandering to the review I'm going to write about the God-awful narration. Hopefully warning others will allow me to regain my focus, as the story inself has merit. I am excited that the series is completed by a different, hopefully better, narrator.
No, but the longer you listen the easier it is to ignore the horrible narrartion, so I would recommend listening in long chunks. Every time I come back to lsten after a few days, I'm always like, 'oh yeah, this crap again'. Seriously, she sounds like a 13 year old using her "adult sexy voice".
I like a light romance, but this was too cheesy for me. too cliche. I finished it, but was glad it was over.
I found the narrator for this one overly breathy and dramatic and she has a strange emphasis on some of her words. It was distracting. The story was just okay - I failed to fully engage with the characters. I may have liked the book more if I was reading it myself.
Yes, because it's got a strong female character, strong male character and they butt heads. also there is some great sex.
I would have to say Nick, he fought with himself so much and the end of the book what he did for Alexa was romantic.
She was a little dry at times, but she was still good
I listen to these books at work and I had to explain so many times why I was laughing! I almost cried a few times.
The story line is really cute with the childhood hatred of each other. I actually did have a friend read it and she too knew what was going to happen at the end within the first few chapters, but we still liked it as a fluff novel.
The one part where the performer starts screeching trying to convey emotion was just awful. I get there was supposed to be a lot of emotion, but when it's right in your ear it's just annoying.
