I wanted to like this book and I did like parts of it, but it felt a little bit like hard core porn in a lot of places. The was less character development and more explicit sexual encounter. There were subtle plot lines that, for me, would have brought me closer to the characters, but were abandoned. One example of this is a conversation in which the male character tells the female lead that he had bought her a surprise gift. Then, they shuffle off to a men's public bathroom for a tryst after which, we never hear anything further about the "gift that was purchased."
Most likely not. I just felt frustrated after listening to this. I like a good love scene (or love-making scene) as much as the next person, but this just felt like it was pushed to the next level over and over again to be shocking and different, rather than an attempt to tell a good story.
I didn't hate the characters. In fact, what I know of them is intriguing.
I guess, after the excitement over 50 Shades of Grey, there's a new genre where the writer pushes the boundaries of the love making scenes in an effort to titillate the reader. This book seems to fall into the genre. Not a bad thing, but something to know when you buy it and prepare to start listening.
I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.
I think someone who likes nothing but sex scenes with little or no plot and poor character development would find this book to be the BOMB.
Erotica books are ok, but I need a story to follow. In general, this is not my favorite genre.
This is the first time that I have listened to her and liked her voice. I am not crazy with joy with the male voices, but they are just fine.
What can I say. The reviews were true. I loved this book and immediately started the 2nd book. I loved the characters. Overall the book has a story line and really, really hot, steamy sex scenes. I will admit that the narrator was a little off putting at the beginning. After reading other books I found her slow and she sounds older then what the voices in my head would sound. However, a few chapters in and she had me hooked. I think she is the best narrator for having to play 5 different male voices and making them sound masculine and all individually unique. You cannot help but fall in love with each character. I cannot decide who I like more. One book ends that then next picks up right up where it left off. This is worth the credit:) I really enjoy books that have an ongoing story line and I like the fact that all the characters show up in the other books. Once you start you can't put it down and you can't wait to find out what happens next. I also like that even though there is a lot of sex in the book there is still a plot and it keeps you wanting more. Enjoy:)
The behind-the-scenes look in the music industry was a welcome change in storyline from the cookie cutter romance stories. I love that every character in the story was flawed in some way which made them believable and interesting. So much better than the "perfect people finding each other" that is the basis of most romances. Mix that with laugh-out-loud humor and scorching heat between the sheets (or any other available location) and you have a winner. Looking forward to other stories in the series.
It ranks among the top. Though I'm not a fan of rock n' roll, I could totally imagine this band and all the sex episodes between them. It was crazy but I'm sure all this goes and and more with groupies on a tour bus.
Master Sinclair was my favorite. A hopeless romantic rock star who wears is heart on his sleeve??? You gotta love em'... The scondary characters were good too so I can't wait to learn more about the others.
No one in particular. She did a good job distinguishing all the voices.
It was funny, sexy, erotic, skanky, etc... all that rolled into one.
About to buy book two now.....
Overall, this book is worth a credit. The story requires a certain suspension of disbelief, such as how the characters get together in spite of their different ages and backgrounds, and such as when Myrna, a 35 year-old doctor of human sexuality is "shocked" to discover that Brian, her heavy metal rock star lover, has engaged in threesomes in the past! This after she has spent three months interviewing the band's groupies. But in spite of that, the characters are likeable and the sex scenes are steamy. I'll try more books in the series.
I love happy endings; this one doesn't disappoint. Even though the storyline is pretty typical I really liked it. Liked the getting to know the characters; all the characters are distinct and unique. Can't wait to get to know them better in upcoming books. This was my first listen from this author and narrator - thought they both did a great job. The sex "love-making" was amazing and sometimes anxiety-producing; certainly did it for me.
Listening to a book, for me, as long as it has an exceptional narrator, is much more enjoyable. I love hearing the inflections, the passion, the heart, something I do not do easily in my own head when I read. Ms. O. Keef does a pretty good job. Male voices could be a little gruffer, but overall she does them pretty good.
Great Read!! Keeps you wanting more! You can't help but love the guys and the women they entangle themselves with.
