I really enjoy this series, but this narrator almost killed the book for me. The narrator sounds like Siri (yes the Apple smart assistant app) and its so frustrating. She is also awful at giving accents; Kingsley rarely has an accent at all, and Wesley sounds like a backwater redneck rather than an educated man from the south.
If you can get past that, this book is a lovely continuation of the series with a shocking ending and an infuriating cliffhanger. If you liked the previous books in this series, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
The narration of this book is absolutely horrible. The narrator is speaking way to fast and without any proper inflection or feeling. It actually feels like the "provider" sped up the narration for some reason. I actually checked my device to see if I accidentally sped up the audio. The story is good but the narration is annoying and is taking away from the experience.ALSO, this is a 4-book series. It would be better is the narration was done by the same person for all 4 books so that I don't have to constantly relearn the character voices.You might want to READ this particular book rather than listen.
away from anything else on the market. Reisz is amazing. She writes literate, fascinating erotica with something for everyone. There are no cardboard secondary characters: Everyone has a story, and she draws you into the world so subtly that you only realize you're in love once the book is over. Aeron James is by far the best narrator in the series, and I wish they had kept him throughout the series - but nothing can sink this series for me. Completely amazing.
Honestly it took me a while to be in the mood to compete the book, it is good, well written, exasperating but not a waste of time.
I love Wesley and Kingsley, and most of the characters are intriguing, Kingsley’s and his love for Soren is too painful but I want Kingsley to have his love and Wesley just breaks my heart with his pure love for Nora, he should have what he wants with all the truth Nora gives him. I want to beat her with a riding crop if she doesn’t give him more, and made more effort to stay with him. Teach him some Kink they can enjoy, he will come into his own. Wall sex!
Not sure on this question, I’m not sure any one person can capture the voices of each character, but I could listen to her.
I’m inspired to read the next book, because I want to know, this was a cliffhanger. I want Kingsley to finally have Soren, But can’t Soren watch some hardcore porn and take a Viagra or something, LOL. too much pain.
There was a statement (Reisz) Kingsley made “they used labels like Dominant and submissive, and brandied about slogans like Safe, Sane…. but Kingsley knew it was all artifice, window dressing, self-deception.
I guess I’ll read the next book, Damn Reisz pulled me in again.
Wanting to try Tiffany Reisz for quite some time I bought this one first and went back for the rest! My advice is to listen to them in the correct order.
The chapters going back to when Soren and Kingsley met in boarding school were most captivating. Reisz reveals their afflicted relationship with such attention to detail, leaving you wanting to know more
Anyone with an iphone 4S or 5S will immediately assume they are listening to SIRI read the the story! Robin Rowan's voice is bland, wooden and completely void of emotion... just like SIRI!
And let's not get into her feeble attempt for Wesley's southern accent. I will say that she got slightly more animated toward the end. Several times I wanted to stop listening but I stuck it out because the story was written so well.
In a heartbeat! But there's no way any film studio -- even HBO for that matter --would touch the book's controversial subject matter.
The rest of the audio books in this series have much better narrators.
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!
This was my least favorite of the series...it really showed the dark side of Soren from the beginning and relationship between him and Kingsley I hadn't imagined. The spark was not there with Wes and Nora and this made the listen a little vanilla for me...
Nora is fun and humorous and isn't ashamed of who she is and doesn't mind letting others know that. She is just not the same without Soren....
The first two were much better than this one....I kept having to relisten to the Soren/Kingsley parts because they were so similar. Soren has a very distinct voice and it was not present in this book. I hate to say the narrator ruined this listen for me.
This book was not as quite as intense as the first two but I did want to know what happened in the end so I listened as much as possible.
So disappointed in the narration but love the story of Nora.
The story was unique and intriguing but the narrator sounded like a computer generated voice. It was difficult at times to understand what she was saying like the voice was sped up too quickly.
Buy this story only if you’re much more interested in the relationship between Soren and Kingsley than you are the one between Wesley and Nora/Eleanor. The narrator does fine with the former men’s voices, though it’s very, very difficult to tell their voices apart. This is bad b/c they talk to each other more than they engage with anybody else during the whole story. And the narrator does well with Nora’s voice, but she fails miserably with Wesley’s voice. The narrator makes Wesley sound like a pimple-face, pre-pubescent little boy. Add that to the story, the dialogue, and the result is that Wesley comes across as a pathetic, whining, clueless little boy. And Nora comes across as the worst of emotional and mental sadists targeted solely at Wesley. She is so unconvincing in her love for Wesley. Desire—yes; love—no way! While with Wesley, Nora actually talks about how she loves Soren more often than she tells Wesley that she loves him. In fact, she talks about Soren while Wesley is making love to her and readily admits to Wesley that Soren was a better lover their first time than her first time with Wesley. Then she blames Wesley for telling him. After this story and it’s lack, I don’t think I care enough what happens with or to Nora to continue the next book. I would only be interested in continuing Soren’s and Kingsley’s story.
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
