Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Loved the audio...I have not read a print version.
I loved Marcus and Elisabeth as a couple but if I had to pick one it would be Elisabeth for
her feisty nature and strong will!
A beautiful, soulful voice that brought this book to life!
Spice in the 1700's!
I resisted this series for as long as I could and was pleasantly surprised, it was a beautiful
love story with a little action and suspense, I will continue on....
Friend of God... Saved by grace... Mother of 3 gifts... Wife of one... Worship dancer.... Educated by God, Academia and Willy Wonka...
I enjoyed listening to Ask For It. This was my first Sylvia Day book and I went in with low expectations. I usually prefer present day romances but this one was discounted (and one of my first Audible purchases).
Both the story and the performance were good! Not great but very good. I struggle with the female doing a male voice but it did not distract from the story in any substantial way. Overall, Ask For It was worth the listen all around.
The audio edition is better than the print version because of the narrator's accent and performance. The English accent helps to propel you back into time and gain a fuller experience of the book.
Ask for it is a unique hybrid between Pride and Prejudice and 50 Shades of Grey. It takes all that we love about Pride and Prejudice and 50 shades of grey and intertwines them into a romantic mystery. It effectively combines Mr. Darcy and Christian Grey into Marcus and Elizabeth Bennett and Anastasia Steele into Lady Hawthorne, also Elizabeth. Ask for It takes the leap we all wished for in Pride and Prejudice which makes it that much more stunning.
Justine Eyre brings to the book her accent which you would not be able to experience in just reading the book. It takes you back in time so you can actually feel the characters.
The book had several great moments and was the ultimate search for oneself and the love that once was.
I'm not a big fan of historical romance but enjoyed some of Sylvia Day's other books. The story was a little slow in the beginning but eventually picked up some. It took me a week to finish rather than 2 days like I do with other books. I've read better historical romance books, however the narrator did a great job with the characters.
sexy hot hot hot. It has great sex, it has relate-able women's logic, and there is the spice of adventure. It was a great escape for me. The perfect thing to listen to in the tub. It was the perfect flow there was no teasing for the one generic hot moment there was the right amount of teasing and lots of good sex. The best part was it was not a penthouse smut there is depth to the characters.
I love Justine Eyre. Her voices for the characters bring them life. I also like Sylvia Day's books. They are steamy and fun.
Any of the other books in this series
Some like it hot!
It's an entertaining listen with a fairly engaging story line. Definitely a guilty pleasure.
It's a romance novel and an entertaining one at that. If you're looking for sophisticated story telling, look elsewhere. If you like the genre, it's worth a listen.
Love novels, love to laugh.
I couldn't listen to this book. I found it boring, didn't like the narration, and found it dragged. I see where others have said it picks up a little, but I couldn't wait for it. Audible and I have been attached for several years and this is only the second book I couldn't get through.
Hot, sinful romance.
Classic Sylvia Day.
Her narration brings male and female characters to life-never forced or faked.
Ask for it-suits it well.
Great book and narration. Steer clear of male narrators with Sylvia Day...they ruin her stories unfortunately....
Say something about yourself!
When I started listening to this book I stopped after a couple of minutes because the accent was too strong. A couple days later I decided to start listening again and after the first chapter I could not stop listening. I love how the relationship between Marcus and Elizabeth develops from lust to actual love. Great historical romance novel.
I did not care for the narrator
