I guess I only read the "great" reviews. I am having trouble with this story and narration so I came back to see what others thought. Worried I am becoming a narration snob. But she is just awful...sounds like a prude Victorian prissy and the male voice is so unattractive you cannot imagine these men are well attractive or magnetic....I appreciated the reviewer that gave the overview of the prequel...I don't care for this writer's turn of phrase.
Say something about yourself!
This is one of those books that really ticked me off. The first 75% I was in love, ready to sing its praises, to download the sequel in actual reading format because its not available in audio yet....thank goodness I waited.
The things I loved were:
1. Alpha males galore
2. Totally hot scenes
3. I really respected the drama...in the beginning....the female lead lost her mom to breast cancer, her boyfriend helped her emotionally and physically, he even held the moms hair while she threw up....so no matter what she feels for another guy how do you ditch the man your dying mom approved of???
Then the writer just flipped a switch, the wonderful boyfriend becomes anything but wonderful.....how does a man who held a dying woman's hair while she was sick complain to a waiter about a crying baby? Huh?!?!? Then the 24 year old super hot model like female lead never had a boyfriend before this guy? Huh?!?!?
Throw in some fake made up drama towards 85% through and I turned it off with an hour ago.....ugh! Ruined a great book and ticked me off! If you like fake drama go for it, at least the hot scenes were hot.
No, the voices were not fitting the characters
Too long, not realistic at all, too many coincidences, and just not very interesting
I feel like I wasted a credit on this book. Narrator was not good for this book at all and the story itself was a little boring to me. Maybe the narrator ruined it for me.
NO. THE NARRATION WAS THE WORST EVER! THE VOICE IS ANNOYING AND SHE SUCKS WITH DIFFERENT VOICES.
SHE SUCKS WITH DIFFERENT VOICES. MADE ME THINK I WAS LISTENING ONE OF THOSE NICKELODEON TWEEN TV SHOWS WITH THE CRAPPY ACTING.
DON'T LET HER NARRATE ANY OTHER BOOKS EVER!
I enjoyed the story, looking forward to the next ... My only gripe, I couldn't stand her voice as "other people" I rather the tone change vs trying to sound like a man.
Lives in Illinois. Loves to read! Mother of 6! Grandma (Noni) of 5!
To much assumption and not enough questions! I really liked Gavin because he was real and spoke his mind. But Emily was back and forth. Trusting that loser and the one time she may have questions for Gavin she just runs away and believes some bull that she made up in her own head! Emily seemed so childish she broke her own heart, all she had to do was ask, it's almost as if she like being in a dominating relationship. Maybe if Dillion told her what Gavin was trying to say to her she would have believed him. She would have believe Dillon if he was in the act and telling her he wasn't cheating.
This was my first novel by this author. I enjoyed it write a bit, but the cliffhanger would have seriously upset me if it were not fit the fact that it is already out.
Other reviewers have discussed the narrator's lack of skill in catering off the New York accent, so I will not rehash it here; but I cannot leave without saying that I had to read parts of the story to give myself a break at times. She was great as the voice of Emily.
This was a good listen. The narrator was ok, but some of her voices I found to be annoying. It was worth a credit and I look forward to seeing how things play out in book 2.
