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.
One of the few books I actually stopped reading mid way through. Plot was way too predictable.
References to "romance novels" and cliched plot but delivered in a moderately interesting manner. Poor girl marries icy rich childhood friend in a "business deal" that gives her money to save her parents' home and allows him to gain full control of his architectural firm.
nope, too silly, poorly developed story
if the narrator didn't have a voice like she was recovering from a cold
I don't want to be mean about the narrator, but her voice isa bit nasal and out of breath or something? it doesn't suit this genre. I heard her in "calling invisible women" and her vioce suited the humor there... but made this book here even worse than it was
Yes because the author has a great storyline.
Voice was to raspy.
Story line was great but needs a different narrator.
I liked the story and the characters but the narrator spoiled this for me. She read too fast and with no emotion. I'm glad to see the narrator for the next two books in the series is different so I'll try the next one. Cute romantic story with no surprises.
