The narrator ruins the book. Her breathy and fake accent is horrible.
I have enjoyed a lot of her books. This one is not the case. Worst yet.
New reading faster paced book
sadness that I spent my money on it
Return this book
First audible book I just couldn't listen to at all!! The English accent was so bad I could not get into the story.
The book would have been better with a different narrator, such a pity she was selected to do the entire series. Had I realized that I would never have purchased the entire series but I did and I am compelled to stick it out and get through it! Mostly I like the stories but dread listening to it. Also I was not expecting it to be a series of the late 18 hundreds, Sad that the series was ruined by a bad narrator. Normally I enjoy Sylvia Day books. I just wished I have not purchased the whole series at one time.
Absolutely. I work more that 60 to 70 hours a week and have a family. Unfortunately my commute is the only time I get to indulge in the pleasure of a book.
I liked both Marcus and Elizabeth. I really enjoyed the banter back and forth between the two as they romance developed.
Her portrayal of each character was excellent.
Not really time well spent. I thought it would be a modern-ish Regency novel. It is not. It is actually porn. My own fault - i bought it because of the narrator, not realizing she also does this kind of thing.
It's probably fine for what it is. Just not what I'm interested in.
She is as usually very good. I bought the book because she's the narrator, not realizing that this is, well, special-genre fiction.
I would not want to see this as a movie but I'm sure there is a market for it.
If you like dominance erotica/pornography you may like this book. If you are looking for something a bit more Georgette Heyer stay away!
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.
