Avid reader that was saved my audible. This mommy taxi thing would be rough without with the earbuds;)
I wasn't given the opportunity to become invested in the characters. The plot was definitely lacking and the sex scenes weren't as spicy as the BDSM storyline could have allowed. The secondary love story was actually more compelling than the primary.
It was a "slow" read, but her saving grace was Decker's Irish purr.
Decker and Aprils secondary storyline. If she had expanded this there might have been hope for a book you think about later.
This book was very forgettable. The sex scenes were dull and the romance was lackluster. Definitely not a Fifty Shades.
Yes, the description of this story is good but it leaves a lot out of what to expect.
Christian. He help Rowan work through a truly awful experience from her past that left her closed off and basically just functioning through life.
Love Decker and April's story as well. It was so in line with Christian and Rowan's.
I would change the way the book was written. The chapters were some what choppy and cut short.
Decker and April. Decker seemed more intersting than the main lead male.
April bec/ even though she was new to the scene, she had herself more together than the so called veteran/main character of the book.
Better flow to the story, more background on the characters.
I can't tell you what could have made The Dark Garden Better? I am not a writer my personal opinion of the story was. I kept waiting for the story to get going with a hot sex scene. But the story never hit climax no great hot sex scene NOTHING it just went around and around in one big circle.
The Dark Garden has not turn me off to romance novels. I LOVE ROMANCE NOVELS that's what it is all about. Audible.com should only carry romance novel who cares about the other genres.
Madison Cole did a great job narrating the story. She had a hard job cause the story she was narrating was the pits
If I could have play editor. I would have told the writer A) develop the story more/ make it a longer story B) More sex scene/ More HOT sex scene this story had barely any C) The characters spent two much time driving around in there cars who cares. D) The review of this story was sort of false advertising this story was not even in the league of Fifty Shades.
I wish Eden Bradley all the best luck on her next novel. I look forward to reading it.
story was good. Narrator was good at differentiating characters voices so it was easy to tell who was speaking.
Made all of the characters come alive. Very clear articulate & easy to listen to voice. She does great male voices and I'd like to see Madison read more titles.
I really enjoyed the story. Eden Bradley introduces one to BDSM with grace and style. Well done!
This was a little treasure! I loved that the main character, Rowan is a strong secure female. She is thrown off balance when she meets a main determined to top her. I also love the side story with April.
Absolutely worth the CREDIT!
No, it does not have a strong plot. Heroin's problem just dragged on and on in the story. Supporting characters' story were much better.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Madison Cole, sounds like Karen White. Ok on the males voices, but hard to believe her female voice is a femme fetal. Starts out as BDSM, but quickly moves to core romanance story. Happy ending
Happy endings of course (for me).
I'm always up for a tortured soul or two in a book along with some (quite a bit in this novel) BDSM. BDSM is always a turn on for me (pun intended) but there has to be a good story behind it. Sex for sex sake doesn't cut it. The story was good, could have been better, though, especially between April and Dekker, but overall a good listen.
No. I believe she could have done better with the male voices although she did wonderful with Dekker's accent.
