I enjoyed the book, the characters & the sex. I however feel a little short change in the story department. I feel lime character info was lacking and how fast we got to the goods . still enjoyed book & looking forward to the next book.
I'm not big on cliff hangers. I'm not impressed with this story. It's not terrible, it's just average.
Love to read and when i'm busy I'll take an audiobook.
This was the first book i've heard with two narrators and I enjoyed it. I didn't mind how they went back and forth taking turns. It really helped bring the characters to life for me. Much like Fifty, you have plenty of hot erotic sex, which sometimes was a tad bit too much for me. Story was good though.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
OMG, I've had this book in my wish list for ages….why the heck had I not read/listened to it sooner???? I suppose with the cover, I assumed this would be a very blatant, porn-like relationship???--I'm not even sure why, but I prefer sweep-me-off-of-my-feet romance that is subtle, but strong. And, oh did this wonderful, little sexy book deliver (it was nothing near to my first assumption)!
First, let's talk about the prologue narrated in Shane East's masculine, gorgeous, deep voice with his caressing British accent….OMG….It's like melted butter over a warm pastry…SUMPTUOUS!! Shane East is an excellent narrator, even if he only narrated for the prologue. Grace Grant did a great job as well, as she narrated for the rest of the book.
I loved the intensity of the romance and love affair between Ethan Blackstone and Brynne Bennett. Ethan is a millionaire and owner of Blackstone Security, and Brynne's father, as a friend called up a favor asking for Ethan's help to protect his daughter who was in danger. Ethan was busy and hesitant at first, until he received her picture……
"That picture changed everything. I was not the same after I saw it and I couldn’t go back to the man I’d been before seeing it either. Not after we met that night on the street. My whole world altered because of a photograph. A photograph of my beautiful American girl (Ethan Blackstone)."
Ethan's need, longing, craving, desire, and pull toward Brynne is astronomical. I mean it's off the charts, and I love it when a playboy/rogue can get roped in with that one woman who will come to mean everything to him. Ethan definitely falls for Brynne hard and fast (well, I suppose pun intended since it's accurate.…LOL). Brynne, herself is sweet, smart, and a survivor of a devastating tragedy. We don't find out what that tragedy is, but the reader is aware of how impacting and damaging it was to Brynne's psyche and ability to trust men. But, when Brynne meets Ethan at a gallery showing where he bought her picture, they were destined to be inseparable…mainly due to Ethan's persistence. Needless to say, the chemistry between the leads is ON FIRE and consuming. It was great to see the steps Brynne took in trusting Ethan and her comfort level when spending time with him.
I have to mention that her dad, in particular, was kind of interesting. I mean, he is protective of Brynne, but then again he encourages her modeling (nude modeling) and sends the main nude, but tasteful picture of his daughter to Ethan when asking him to protect Brynne. LOL…I just found that to be an interesting combination…protective dad, but proud of his daughter's nude pics…Well, he is definitely one very supportive parent, and Brynne really needed that since her mother left much to be desired.
The ending was what I expected, as a secret comes out that causes that delicate infrastructure of trust between Brynne and Ethan to fracture. So, it's an automatic download for the second book in the series….I'm going to devour this series and I'm so happy that all of the books in this series are out for my delectation.
This series is so well written! I found it to be so good that I have listened to all 3 books in the series twice! Book 1 is a bit short but hooked me right away! Shane Easts' voice is dreamy. I will definitely look to see what other works this author has available!
I liked the book, and I plan to read the others, but it's not even 4 hours long. Seems a bit ridiculous to be priced the same as 9-12 hour books.
It was a great story. Narration was BRILLIANT!!!!
Both characters did it for me!
Too many to mention, but they are all bookmarked!
The Mortal Instruments
Its was the same story or 50 Shades and Bared to You. Same type of male and female charactors...same messed up lives...just different names. Very predicable if you've read 50 Shades and Bared to You.
