Ready to enjoy great books!
Did I mention this is a LONG and somewhat uneventful story. That being said it kept my attention throughout. I just kept waiting for the gasp moment or expecting more present day drama than dealing with past events. Good listen, completed in two in a half days. Although, the narrators female voice, at times annoyed me ;-/
Great job with the voices and good flow
If the chapters and conversations weren't so repetitive.
This book had the potential to be a great read. It just got to the point where I could finish their sentences and didn't care what happened in the end. Could have ended 8 chapters before it did.
No for the author, yes for the narrator.
No. I just don't understand how this book received so many positive reviews. Okay, I understand that there isn't a book for everyone. That being said, he treated her as his daughter. Yuck! Could not finish it.
What I could stand of this audiobook was excruciating. The story is unbelievable and depressing.
No, I only listen to Audio books while I'm working. I don't have much time outside of work to read print books.
I enjoyed the female role the best. She overcame a lot and go Gabriel in the end.
It was good. Liked the voice.
Ohh I don't know... Might have to pay me to come up with the tag line.
The books has surprising similarities to 50 Shades; but it is still a good book and stands on it's own (especially after the 2nd book).
Its not necessarily a new concept... girl meets boy, who happens to be girl's best friend's older brother. What makes this audiobook great is the "I am so much smarter than you" tone of the reader. I think some people might be turned off by it. However, considering what an @ss Gabriel can be, the reader is perfect.
loved the narrator..
how romantic Gabriel was
in Italy .when they finally got together, he was so gentle her .loved it
can't wait for the 3rd book to come out
I have gotten halfway through part 2 and given up on this one -- I'm a fan of romance, paranormal, science fiction, almost every kind, but there is just too much brooding and too many scenes of the "she whispered" or "he gave a black look" variety. Maybe in print I would enjoy it more, being able to skip over some of the more lugubrious passages. Returning this one, though I still have some mild curiosity about the dark secrets promised and continually referred to in mysterious ways ...
I'm looking forward to the next instalment of Karen Moning's "Dani O'Malley" series.
I could not find myself inside this story. It was clearly written from a female's perspective and I could not relate to much of the feelings.
I liked the performance
It should not me made into a movie
I guess everything is so subjective - How we absorb the material. I read the reviews and I wanted to like this book but there was not enough of a story here. 3 downloads - I thought I would lose my mind. Insipid, sappy, cliche-ridden dialogue - Get my drift here...I'm sorry but I feel that the other reviewers really misled me or my tolerance for this type of a story is really low. It wasn't quite a hot sexy romance because nothing happened until the very last few segments. Love was not unrequited just delayed. There was a lot of angst and I thought there would be some big reveal but I really wasn't impressed. Sorry folks but I must be honest. I read everything and I like romance too but intelligent, amusing, sexy plots - one of those anyway - would have been nice.
