Not the best but acceptable.
Kellen Lutz = Griffin Muir
Justin Baldoni = Dante Anastagio
I liked it!!
The narrator needs to dial down on his acting. There were times when he grossly over-acted certain dialogue, and times when the changes in the volume of his voice just got irritating. When an author writes that a character 'shouted' I don't need the narrator to actually SHOUT. When a character 'whispers', I don't need the narrator to whisper the dialogue. Why? Because then I wouldn't have to keep adjusting the volume on my listening device.
The overuse of onomatopoeia and metaphors for male genitialia/ejaculation/masturbation. Also, my personal pet peeve... Outlandish adjectives. He kept describing Dante's mouth as a medium rare color. Later on they were 'wine stained'. His eyes are 'scarab black'. His hair is raven black. I almost felt like this was written by Ms Perky (you know that Guidance Counseler Romance Author Wannabe character from 10 Things I Hate About You).
Overacting. Spoke too loud or too soft in some scenes.
Griff's cannon. Griff's meat. Dante's medium rare lips. No seriously, they were mentioned so many times they might as well have been characters.
I hear there a sequel. For the love of all that's holy, stop writing the sounds as text. I don't need to see or hear 'scritch scritch' when someone scratches something. I don't need to see or hear 'thump' when someone's listening to someone's heartbeat. And I definitely do not need to see or hear CLICK FLICK CA-CLICK CLICK each time a character snaps a photo. Damn that photoshoot scene was annoying with all those CLICKS.
perfect amount of romance and sex appeal. wish it wasn't "straight" guys falling in love but even that is played as under current feeling that have always been there. one of my favorites.
A true romance with fire to warm your heart! Love throughout the book, from friends, family and much more. Hope to hear a sequel in the making of "Tommy"...
I bought this book on the 18th and finished it by the 19th! I couldn't stop listening! totally drawn in by the depth of the characters begging the story not to end! I will be looking for more from this author!
This is one of those stories on my rererereread/rerererererelisten list. A prefect best friend to lover, low angst, high love and heat factor. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. The narrator does a brilliant job on this one. Read with passion, fun, and you can feel the love between the two mains. Well well done.
Initially, the story was slow and it seemed to take a long time to get to the heart of it. Once it got going, though, the emotions really shined from the characters. I liked how Griff and Dante were polar opposites but ended up being complimentary to each other.
I consider it a well written story when the gender preference is secondary to the love each character has for the other. It's about love and support and willingness to sacrifice for the other.
This is not to say the sex scenes weren't steamy because they were!! I really liked how the author incorporated seriously steamy, hot with the emotional connection between Dante and Griff.
I liked the author's writing and hope more is to come. Just speed up a little on the unraveling of the story.
