I read the previous reviews because I brought the book up to look for more by the same narrator and was curious about what others thought. Now I have to join the discussion!
I obviously thought the narrator was masterful - but that's probably the problem - he goes (successfully, I thought) for more of a performance than most and you either enjoy the artistry, or you don't. I also enjoy the novelty of a male narrator, and as long as you're going for a sexy book, you might as well bring a sexy voice along for the ride (pun intended - sorry.)
I also differ from others, in that I didn't like Caine's Reckoning (I don't like romances with sexually abused heroines - serial rape spoils my mood for love.) and so I could only be pleasantly surprised by the sequel. I thought Sam's Creed was far more enjoyable. I'm not sure what the objection is, in fact. It's a 'thrown together' romance with a teasing (rather than angry or anguished) tone that builds to a satisfying, Dirty Harry on the range, climax. As for the pacing of the sexual relationship, I thought it was fairly typical of the genre and perhaps even more believable than many - He and she all alone in a cave with no t.v.... What would you do?
