Compared to Gideon Cross or Christian Grey, Gabe is a monster! The reading of this book is as if it someone reading at you not to you. There is no fall or rise in voice or character changes. I won't be listening to the next book! Sorry!
It was expectable the characters had little depth, kept finding myself wanting to go back to Jase story I don't know whether I'll read Ashes I was a little too bored with this one
Sparse in theme/plot/story line, more on sex or BDSM wannabe. The author should have thought about the scene where Gabe 'served' Mia out to three other men. What is that?
I normally like Maya Banks books, but I was sadly disappointed in this one and have no plans to finish the series.
Not overly impressed with Adam Paul's narration. Maybe a female narrator would have been better. But I doubt it.
Everything, the plot is unrealistic, any vague facts are difficult to digest and the whole story line leaves you feeling as though you are listening to elevator music.
In all honesty I don't know
Not really, it could be due to the content he was forced to read, but I didn't like his voice much either
I couldn't get through the whole book, but I simply would not have published it in the first place
It really was very disappointing, there was no simmering tension, just straight into graphic sex scenes with bondage etc etc. maybe there are people out there who thrive on this sort of thing but not me. I think the blurb should also have a warning on the content, I genuinely believe that it is not suitable for younger teenage girls. I would not want my 13 year old niece reading it, the blurb does not give an inkling about the nature of the writing. It sends a very poor message to women, who on earth, in this day an age, would accept a contract such as the 'hero' proposes in this novel. Sorry, maybe it improves, but in didn't even make it to halfway before I turned it off in disgust.
All business but contemporary fun!
It started off really rough since the guy was just so rude. I think the author could have elaborated so much more on the "enchantment" between the characters for all these years before jumping into BDSM. that connection was missing.
The narrator was speaking so fast, like reading a text book as fast as possible. I think the main character came out so nasty instead of "alpha" male due to the performance.
The other 2 male charactors might make it possibility, they were more likeable.
Charactors don't seems real.....A girl that smart and beautiful with a solid support system would not degrade herself like that.
I restarted this story 3 times before I fianlly got through it. Narraotors voice droned on and on.
All but the last few chapters.
This is the first romance from Audible I've heard that is so raunchy and degrding to the woman. I need to check the reviews closer next time. I feel like I need a shower! Very disappointed.
If you're an open minded reader and modern, slightly erotic romance is your genre, then I'd suggest ignoring the negative reviews of the book and trying it. I went in a bit suspicious due to the reviews, but found I liked the plot and characters. My ability to connect with a character's humanity is important to me and and I felt Banks included enough humanity in her characters to make them real and relate-able. This series reads a bit like the 50 Shades Trilogy in regards to the kink so if you didn't like or were appalled by those books then don't give Banks' Rush Series a try -- you probably won't like it either.
I would describe the audio performance of this series as good, not excellent, but that's probably because I felt like Paul's voice made the men sound older than intended. This is a personal opinion, though, and I didn't take marks off for his performance because he did well in all other ways.
