Better voice talent.
I've already forgotten the story, but then maybe that's a good thing.
Not for me.
Can I have my money back?
I struggled the most with the narrator... The characters dialogue did not flow. For me there was too much sex and too much detail.
It's been fun following the route of the book of spells. Carina has loved Max since she was a young teen. He sees her as a little sister to be protected, but has no interest in her as a woman until he sees just how much she has grown up. She has trouble breaking free of the restraints her older brother, Michael, imposes on her believing he knows what is best for everyone in the family. Max is Michael's best friend and doesn't know how to handle the new Carina who is trying to break out of the mold that she is being cast in.
Narrator, Colleen Marlo does an excellent job with both male and female voices. Great tone inflection, especially with Maggie (from the Marriage Trap) who displays a whole lot of attitude. This narrator manages to carry the voice and attitude of Maggie throughout all the books in the series. I find this to be a rare quality in other narrators. I will look for more from the narrator.
I would highly recommend this series, only disappointed that book 4 has not yet been release and I have to wait several months for it. I will be looking for more from this author.
with each book in the series it gets better and better. This by all means is the best one in the series. I love the raw affection and passion that was displayed in this one. I really do hope that there is more coming!!! my guilty pleasure for sure!!!!
Tell us about yourself!
I always love audio apose to books so that i can do other thing and still get threw my book. I like listening in the car and at night. The only thing is audio are more expensive
Very suttal on how she got the book. I remender the other book loved it. cant wait till next sister to get the book.
when she comes into her own... as far as her Art and her sexual being. i really like audio/ books that are realistic.
I think when Michael finds out about Corina and Max. How Max really wants her but he holds back.
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
--------> Story and Characters Review:
The story is about an MBA graduate Carina Conte reencountered with her childhood crush and now boss, Maximus Gray, the Billionaire and CEO of a huge bakery chain in Italy and now America. The story is hooking from the very beginning... I can't stop listening.
Having been abandoned by his dad and sort of adopted by the Conte family, Max is a bit part of Carina's life when she grew up. Having a big crush on him is like a taboo, a forbidden fruit.. i think that's what kept me on edge all the time. Now that's she all grown up, it keeps me guessing.. would he, would he not fall for her now? Would she give up? And yet the sexual tension between the two never eases. It consumed me.
The Heroine is very adorable i can definitely relate to her personality and her way of thinking. The Hero is the usual all male dominant exterior but with a prince charming material on the in side that all girls dream about... can't complain much about that now can i? hmm yum.... lol
When it comes to some sexual encounters though, i find them to be a bit tacky and unoriginal. I'm not saying i didn't enjoy it.. just a bit tacky at times. The sexual details that the Hero prefers and some of the language that he uses are a bit influenced by today's most "trendy" sexual enigma, Fifty Shades of Grey. And the Heroine can be a bit of a submissive.. hmmm wait.. submissive can b a strong word. Maybe she's obedient? Just in the bed room though. and also none of the heavy whipping canning bdsm stuff too.. so you can also cross that off. It's just a raw sexual experience with a hint of Dom and Sub.
But as soon as i pushed through the cliche part, and just go with the ride.. i found it to be super hot!!!!!!! loved it! The chemistry is overloaded. Cute! Adorable! Romantic! Wrapped up in one!!!!!!!!!
--------> Performance Review:
Her tone of voice is very soothing and her accents, (Although is not spot on italian), is very adorable. Her energy is exuding that i can almost feel like the story is enfolding in front of me. I love her feminine husky tone.. really sexy. (I'm no lesbian but i got a vivid imagination?) lol...
i loved the continued star crossed lovers - it's a series for a romantic.
in italy with mumma cooking.
easy to listen to
Love is never a mistake.
The happy ending of course!
ended to soon
Max because he came to his senses and was willing to do what Carina (sp?) needed
I loved the whole thing but I really loved the sex in the Las Vegas motel
Romantic family lust
The continuation of the series in general
Yes is one is as good as the others
Yes, I lovveee this series, and the narrator did an aweaome job.
Definitely Mama Conti, shes so sneaky.
Ive listen to quite a few of her preformances, loved evey one of them.
Yes and no..yes because its a cute light romantic book in a great series. No because I know I'm going to have to wait for the next one.
