I'm an avid audiobook fan reading contemporary, romance, YA, PNR, fantasy and sci-fi. I review for Jo&IsaLoveBooks Blog.
This started off slow, more due to my reading mood, but it grabbed hold of me and drew me in. Gracie was infectiously likeable. Jack, George, Johnny Bitedown was quite enchanting. This was funny, early lust-love at its finest. True escapism. I now require book two!
Narration: perfect, fun narrator, that delivered the wit, the inner monologues and nicknames with panache.
I'm a SAHM who just discovered the love of audiobooks. I love reading and always have my kindle with me at all times.
OMG! this was my first Alice Clayton book and I think I chose a great one to start with!
The Story was hot, sexy and hilarious! I found myself giggling one minute and fanning myself the next!
**"Top up or down?" I asked, my finger in the button.
He looked at me, turning the full force of his green eyes in me. "Top definitely down," he said as his eyes left mine, moving lower across my body, and then finally back up to mine.
I let my breath out in a slow whosh. D@mn. "Whatever you want, Hamilton" I said quietly.
My heart struggling to return to normal. This guy had yet to hug me, hold my hand, even touch me really. And with his eyes alone, he had my coming apart at the seams.
"Ill remember that, Grace," he smiled sexily.
The Narrator really brought Graces character to life, you can really 'see' her expressions and mannerisms through the narrators eyes. A great listening experience.
And Jack, oh my lawd, he was sexy and the perfect Book Boyfriend! Can't wait to get to the next book to continue their tryst!
The main character is a total blast - a real, robust woman who enjoys life, laugh and friends. She is confident most of the time and tries not to let the opinions of others bring her down, but that's a tough road in a profession of scrutiny. This is fun and is laugh out load read at times
If you like a book with any substance at all, this is not the book for you. The characters were not really developed but the sex scenes sure were. The narration was unimpressive. The same voice was used for every character and it was often difficult to discern who was speaking. I have no intention in continuing this series.
This book was just not my cup of tea, the humor was well one dimensional. Grace started to irritate me. Skipped over most parts. Found it difficult to listen to the narration at a heigher speed, which I normally do. If you like endless 'that's what she said' type off jokes, you might enjoy it. I won't be listening to the next books.
the narrator is totally wrong for this book because she can't fake a british accent, she doesn't even try. I will read the hard copy, I'm sure i can imagine some british man better without the narrators annoying voice in my ear.
the story seems interesting but i will get the book instead.
same voice for all her characters.
I listened to this in one sitting. I found the fact that this was not a typical romance very refreshing. The characters and plot were delightful; very down-to-earth and real. I liked that there wasn't any crazy breakups or cliff hangers or huge earth-shattering secrets kept/let out of the bag. I thoroughly enjoyed the humor and laughed out loud frequently. I would read all of Alice Clayton's books for the humor alone, but the romance is a bonus! I wasn't super impressed with the narrator. I wished the performance would have included a British accent. I felt a lot of Jack's lines were under performed and didn't interpret well without the accent. I listened to another of Alice Clayton's books with another narrator and felt that this one for The Redhead Series didn't measure up. She wasn't completely terrible, but she sure wasn't great. I probably should have read this book instead of listened to It, but overall I really enjoyed the story.
Would be great if there was more going on then their getting along great and having sex. Some kind of hurdle to overcome or friction to resolve. Its just OK, they get along - that's nice.
How is it she gave voice to a British person with an accent but she plays it with no accent?
