I usually read a lot of historical romance but since there was a 4.95 sale, I ended up buying a few books off of the romance list and this was one of them. Though not a huge fan of modern romance, I actually really enjoyed this book. S London is very funny and I caught myself laughing out loud throughout the story. A very light and entertaining book, although love got introduced very quickly. Regardless, it is definitely worth a credit even without a sale.
This book was completely predictable in the beginning, but not so much that I didn't keep listening. However, as it ambled along, the character of Jason got more and more irksome. Seriously, Sydney Landon? Men--heck, people!--don't actually act like that. And who would want them to? The dialogue was eh, as was the narration--supposedly both characters are native South Carolinians. Sure couldn't tell from the narrator's portrayals!
All that said, I did listen to the whole thing, and it wasn't offensive (there are a few narrators on my "never again!" list), and it kept my interest. The story, the narration, the characters--all GOOD, but not GREAT.
Say something about yourself!
It's a nice story but not well developed, I kept expecting things to happened relating you all the background story and hints. But it just ended abruptedly..
a great reader could have saved this one. The story was Ok, maybe a bit too mushy as another reviewer wrote.
the outline was good and it started out good, but somewhere in the middle, the author got
into a whoa is me story.
the reader! It seems like this reader has an AKA, and she tried to improve her style, but her use of wouldn't and couldn't gave her away. I too had to speed up the recording as the last 50 mins where so slow. Female voices were ok,but our strong hero was made to
sound like a weak person.
this story was not for me . I do not care for female leads who think they are so strong and they have to prove they can do everything by themselves. It just gets boring to listen to the lead go on and on.
Narration was so annoying I wanted to quit listening. Thankfully I persevered. The story was quite good.
New to Audible, but already addicted.
Yes, I held my attention and had great detail.
The final connection they made.
Yes...very descriptive and steamy.
I would have to say no. I was frustrated with the story line.
Given some depth to the actually story.
She was ok, not the worst, not the best
One thing that I cannot stand is a weak female character and a dominate jerk male character. The other thing that I cannot stand is when the characters just LOVE each oh so desperately but just cannot talk to each other about the issues that are apparently keeping them apart. Their relationship was flat, boring and felt forced. I honestly thought I was getting a cute romance story but no…it was a contrived story about miscommunications and childish behaviors.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
If you are looking for a story that is easy going, not much drama or keep you on the edge of your seat biting your nails intensity, with some hot steamy sex then this book is for you.
Personally I like a bit of suspense and drama in my stories and everything seemed to come too easily in this book. I mean there was some turmoil, and potential for disaster, but disaster seemed easily averted and I missed that holding my breath intensity.
So, it was a nice book...just a bit too sweet for me.
