This was the worst narration I've ever heard. It was so distracting that I could not concentrate on the story line. The narrator went from giggly school girl voice to annoying make impersonations. Her cadence was terrible.
I will try reading book to see if the story is better in print.
This book kept popping up in my recommendation list, so I decided to give it a try. I really, really enjoyed its story line. Wallbanger is charming, funny, sweet, and sexy. I thought it was a lot different than other books in this genera, with a much longer "chase" (which I really enjoyed).
The narration was truly horrific though. I came close to giving up several times within the first few hours. It seemed to get better a few hours in, but then went back to just plain awful 2 hours from the end. I skipped through a big chunk of it so that I wouldn't have to listen to Heather Smith.
I'm interested enough in the story line that I would like to read the second book. However, I will be reading it rather than listening to it on Audible.
Christina Lauren's Beautiful series.
Anyone one. Oh my gosh. This was by far the worst narration I've ever listened to. I almost gave up on the book several times in the first few hours. She is so over-the-top dramatic that its obnoxious.
I really enjoyed the chase involved in the love stories.
The title is misleading. If you're looking for lots of sex, this isn't the book for you. It's a decent book, the middle got boring. So, I skipped around to the good parts. It was too much banter for me.
... a researcher; reading/listening to any book genre, when I can find the time to do so ... ... mainly between 11 pm and 1 am.
The title of the book;
Long, long story...what was the point again? ...nothing memorable...
Be aware that this is not an erotic/romance book (if it's what you are looking for).
The title was misleading...It was like buying SNikes instead of Nikes.
The narrator was fine.
How does one explain this book? It's a comedy for sure. Full of sexual innuendo and spunky banter. A little corny with a missing O (orgasm) and the falling pictures from the wallbanging but very amusing.
The characters are cute in a three's company kinda way. I wasn't sure what to think of Simon and his harem or Caroline's missing O. But I liked them both. They were adorable.
The secondary characters are cute too. The two groups of friends that can't quite get the coupling right and the cat that falls in love through the wall. Yep, lots of giggling and laughs in this.
This one feels like a sit-com with some romance thrown in the mix - a little. It's the kind of book that's not serious and not real life at all but pure entertainment. When you need to laugh, this is the book to pick up.
I downloaded bc I thought it wld be funny and racy. The story was predictable..(Hard working women meets play boy with a heart of gold that only she can access. yuck) ....the humour was lack and flat.
I have no idea. A college freshman, maybe . . .
Concept was fine, some lines were clever, but it was the same thing again and again and again. Got tired of it. Nothing there.
She did okay. I wouldn't seek her out.
The cat climbing the wall, crazy with lust because of the woman meowing next door, was a bit much . . .
The characters were terribly one-dimensional. I realize this is intended solely as fluff, fun reading, etc., but still! A waste of time.
The heroine Caroline told most of the story from her point of view, and often had me smiling or chuckling. She, the hero Simon and other characters were engaging, and we occasionally heard their points of view thru texts they sent each other
The narrator was outstanding , among the best I've heard. She distinguished voices well, and her performance of the sex scenes was compelling. I will listen to this book again.
While I wouldn't say this is maybe Molly Harper crazy funny, it's more sitcom funny. There's a little bit snark, a little bit spice, a hot tub and some baking.
Some of the past relationships of the main character seems a little too generic or forced, but clearly we don't care about those guys. The main squeeze is definitely hot in the book. The premise is, of course, but the main character meets her romantic interest by yelling at him to stop keeping her awake late at night banging on her wall and screwing half the town. From there, comedy and hijinks ensue.
I like that the author doesn't just gloss over her friends too. There's just enough built around all the characters to really get a sense of her who her friends are. I never appreciate it when an author writes the romance like the guy becomes the woman's sole purpose in life and everyone else magically disappears. So I'm glad that the supporting characters got a little love here.
The reader is rather good for this book. She manages to capture the comedic timing while still keeping in tune with the romance. There's a lot of times when I think the reader actually makes the book more enjoyable then the print version because of the way some of the innuendos written into the story.
