I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
The cliffhanger is a good news bad news type of thing. I only gave this book 4 stars because while I liked the characters, there wasn't much 'story' there. However, I can already tell that will change with the next book since this one ended with a cliffhanger, Which is the bad news. You have to listen to the next to find out what happens.
Loved the characters!
The big twist!
Yes, I listened every chance I could get!
This book had some twists that I didn't expect, which I love in a book! I couldn't wait to find out what came next. It caught me right from the start, I didn't have to spend hours trying to "get into" the book!
i love the story between cash, nash and olivia. This story is one on a kind that should be read by romance book lovers. GREAT BOOK!
Audiobooks help me de-stress, especially after a long 12-hour shift! I love AUDIBLE!
I couldn't stop listening! There were twists and turns and moments that leave you hanging...and I couldn't just stop...I had to know how it was going to play out!
I love Cash! I wish I had a Cash of my own!!!
This book is entertaining. If you are looking for a steamy, sexy story than this should work just fine for you. I didn't really like the male narrator - but I love Kate Rudd. She is the reason I bought the book. The story is predictable, and cheesy at times, but entertaining.
Down to You 2.5....not quite a 3 star read
While the book irritated me a bit in the beginning, I think it was mostly the narration, individually both narrators were good and I am of the opinion if you are going to have two narrators let the girl narrate all the girls and the boy narrate all the boys....not back and forth on the POV's because then each character has two different voices....other than that "pet peeve" of mine the narration of the story was good.The story itself....I ended up figuring out the "twist" about a chapter or two before Olivia...so as far as a book being written well enough that you don't figure it out right away that was well done. Olivia as a character while I did not hate her...I did not like her a whole lot either. Cash & Nash...while appealing and certainly sexy...that was about all they had going for them for most of the book.I was entertained by the story, I don't feel the need to move on to book two as I am not that invested in the characters, but am happy with the HFN ending....
Wow, what an excellent story, I thought the story moved at a nice pace. And the twist and turns were amazing! The only thing I'd would have like different would be them to stick to the male voices and female voices instead of every other chapter. This was my first M. Leighton book And I looking forward to the next book!! A well used credit!
Yes, but only as a purchase. I would not waste a credit on this book, however it was worth the purchase. The characters were not easy to relate to. It was not a very deep story but kept my attention. There is a twist in the story which made it interesting and some witty dialogue that kept me laughing and entertained. The sex was too few and far between but was overall a good book.
Down to You is a shorter novel and a totally unconventional contemporary romance.
Olivia is a curvy brunette with green eyes with a slightly low self esteem. She’s a bartender in college and living with her prissy rich cousin. Olivia thinks TOO much. She made me roll my eyes in annoyance many times. She seriously thinks like crazy in between dialogues, it’s not an inner goddess but it’s just about as annoying.
She ends up having a seriously embarrassing moment and meets Cash. The following morning, another embarrassing moment and meets Nash. Cash and Nash are identical twins. The brothers are BOTH attracted to Olivia and her in return to both of them. Cash is a bar owner bad boy while his brother Nash the clean cut intern, soon to be lawyer. Problem is, Nash is dating her cousin.
I hate the fact that Olivia keeps referring to Cash as a bad boy. She barely knows Cash and passes some SERIOUS judgments on him. Cash is a very successful business owner, can he be all THAT bad? Yes he has a motorcycle but…come on! Nash is the type that Olivia believes that she SHOULD be with. Never mind the fact that what Nash is doing with Olivia what I would assume a “Bad Boy” to be, cheating.
I don’t like the fact that she’s messing with two men, brothers NO LESS. The fact that there are times when she doesn’t know who is who is just ANNOYING!! I don’t like that she is betraying her cousin, granted she barely likes her, but still.
#TeamCash here if you couldn’t tell. Cash is smart, charming, sarcastic, funny and sweet! Just like I love them. :-)
ANDDDDDD then the bombshell and plot twist! I didn’t see that one coming AT ALL!! Which made the ending and novel just a wee bit better.
Down to You would have been more enjoyable to me if Olivia wasn’t so annoying, retarded and whiny through most of the book. The jury is still out on if I would read the next book or not.
(This book has 3 different point of views and they alternate with the chapters. It’s Olivia every other chapter and it switches between Cash and Nash. Cash and Nash’s chapters are usually much smaller than Olivia’s though.)
Narrator Note: There are 2 narrators for this one and they are both new to me. Kate Rudd’s voice IMO sounds more young to me. I imagine she would be great for YA audiobooks. Her male voices were pretty good though.
Benjamin L. Darcie would NOT be my first choice that’s for sure. He has a deep serious voice. I believe he would be great for a Discovery Channel or A&E TV show narrator. I just can’t picture him as a sexy bad boy! His female voices aren’t the greatest either.
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
Not to be all about the sex here, but that is what I liked was the seduction by the two brothers and how she was ever going to choose. And the least part that I saw was early and not going to say when, but very early on. And I went into a heartbreaking NO!!!. At this point not going any further with this, I could see the writing on the wall..
I am not the writer, I can't change this story, it is what it is. I mean I guess some care for this, I, am not of this type of story lines. Maybe one night I might want to know what goes on with this, but not now. To many other wonderful books out there. My greatest stories on Audible have been those that reached through the line I listen to and gripped my heart and desire to hear more of what was going to be. This just didn't give me that feeling. . I research each book to find one greater than the last. It's hard reading reviews because we all like so many different things. I am a die hard romantic and if it has a lot of sex in it, then that is fine with me.. It will move on to something else afterwards. But it needs to be worthy of a good story. . There are so many wonderful Author's out there that are riding this wave right now, and we the readers and listeners need to ride it while we can, cause trust me, it to will change.
First time for the both of them. And never hearing them before, I think they did a good job.
At the point, NO!
Yes, This book left me not wanting to go back and set a date to listen to it again. It left me thinking, This was almost painful. I don't know, maybe in time, I can draw close to it, it's not bad, but it's far from the good books I have read and listened to in the last few years. Authors are really given us what we want lately and reaching out to try this was a chance I think. Although a good chance M. Leighton took here,, for me, combing the two genre's, I am just not ready for this type of book Not like this.. I mean I could go over to suspense and read one so much better with good sex. I'ts True.. For me, I am in that cloud of Boy sees Girl. and it's an attraction he can't explain, Be it on his own or he grew in to it. And where it goes from there is outstanding in the books I read or listen to. I love romance, always have started when I was young reading believe it or not, Classics, Now, I don't even turn to them, for now... So I will continue to look and hope for more of what I have found. I do a lot of asking, looking and research to find what I like. Yes, I am that hopeful incurable romantic that thinks the hero can save the day and take me away from all that clutters my mind on a daily basis and I like to escape with it. The the laundry has to be done. Reality set's in. The last book I read had me wanting so bad to say, NOW that was a damn good book.I adore duel narrations *Beautiful Bombshell*. Loved it and the narration was HOT. Some didn't think so.. That's ok it's your dime, speak your mind. I Do.. You see, different. This would be an unexciting world if we all like the same things with no opinions.. I'ts. the same with books .But for the most part, we are the same here, we like the escape our reading takes us to, It keeps us up all night reading or listening to what is so exciting it just make you cry and sweat at the same time.I love those books.And I love HEA. The reviews, from all sites, be it here or others that help me make a conscience decision to choose that as my next good read or listen. Or hope that it is.. But NO, this book was not. Not now. Right now, I am going to keep searching and watching others to see what they think and hope I make a good pick on the next book I read.. So thanks to all that I turn to help me decide.On Audible I only have a few. That's how close it is here. But mostly, thanks for being honest. Cause that... to me, is what I think makes us all good conversationalist any where we go.Knowing our literature, Be it BDSM, Auto- Biography, History, Spiritual, to Self Help. . I have read them all. . Happy Listening here on Audible And just a side note, Hater's are Motivators for the strong. It's just books people. Lighten up. We read what we moves us right now. .
