From the description I expected a story about a Navy Seal. Was mostly disgusting sex scenes. Not romance - relationship was all lies, possessiveness, and lust. Last time I try an unknown author and discounted book deal.
Something not sex-oriented and with intelligent writing.
No. Too afraid I'll get another disgusting book.
Disgust. Wasn't looking for or expecting porn.
I thought I was buying an action novel. If I had a dime for everyone she used the words "hot cock" and "wet pussy" I could buy a much better book.
The high level story is good but only takes up about 50% of the book - more time spent on the actual story and less on the very detailed sex would be more interesting to me.
The actual story was good but lacked depth, the opposite to the sex which had depth and frequency.
The voice is good
Character development was good as was the premise for the story line...There was just an overwhelming amount of sex that was annoying because the narrator couldn't make me feel anything but annoyed that it took so long. also Lora could have spent less time saying the same thing over and over, I got that things were different in the early days of the marriage the first time she explained it.
I found the story line interesting but the reasons for Nathan not returning home to Bella weren't very plausible. I could see him being self absorbed or having self pity and in pain and fear of hurting Bella, but when he's with her he isn't even surprised that he seems so normal. Their relationship seems normal. The sex scenes were meant to be over the top but didn't do much for me.
Clarissa did an ok job, just didn't care for her rendition of the emotional side of the book
Not so much
I've said it before, a regular story can be made better by the narrator, and a good story can be hard to listen to with the wrong narrator. Reading is so much different that audio because if all the dots don't connect just right, a fantastic book is just ok. I like Lora Leigh's writing and will listen to more of her books, was just disappointed that this wasn't one of the really good ones as it had the potential to be. I will also say it was worth the credit and I did finish the book, although I did speed it up to do so.
I skipped at least half of the majority of the chapters because of the sex. The guy was on a mission and if they wanted to capture him all they had to do was walk in the bedroom. And when you thought it couldn't get worse it did. The leak was obivious, no surprise at the end as to who was involved. While the characters couldn't figure out the story the reader was able to quite easily.
The phone book would be a better listen
The reader was the only good thing about this book
Porn movies have a better plot than this book
I read/litsten to about 2 books a week and I found this to be the most trashy, over sexed novel I have ever read. If reading about large di*** and organisms then this is the book for you. This was not in the romance/sex novel section. I thought it was an action oriented ex navy seal story, which I have read many, but this was all about a guy with a big D..... and how he couldn't relieve himself. My library has about 175 in Audible not counting many others and this is the only book that I could not finish.
Its description was about a navy seal but the story was about sex. Thank God I use an ear piece to listen. I am used to some interleaving of sex into the story because it is a part of life. But this book was a little bit of story woven around a guys, lusting, throbbing, penetrating ya da ya da.
I understand the premise and it could have been expressed without all of the graphic detail and it could have stayed in the background. The hero could have overcome and won in the end, I will never know because I couldn't finish.
OMG - there wouldn't be much of a story left.
I have been remiss in ever giving comments. I often don't even read comments, just the story line. I wish I would have read some of the reviews first. Maybe this is a typical romance novel (not that I consider this romance) but wasn't aware. Folks, there are some really good books out there and this is not one. Try DeMille or Baldacci; you can get some romance without the graphic depiction of sex.
This was a really good read, you can get into the story and just know the love that is in there hearts.
It will make you laugh & cry, True love that will make you happy.
Yes, I loved this whole series by lora leigh.
I recommend reading all the books in the series.
It had a good story line. different from the usual poor girl who needs to be rescued. Story was interesting and kept you quessing what was going to happen next. It was a good listen and kept my attention throughout the whole book
This book is different from most romance books and speaks of a strong woman who is very self suffient
She was a good reader but she needs alittle help with changing charaters.
This book was exciting and kept my attention to see what was going to happen next
I felt it was well worth the point charged and enjoyed it alot. Even though it was not the best read book I have listened to the story line carried it very well and it held your attention from the beginning to the end
