I've listened to over 100 books and this is one of my top 10 which says alot.
It was fun, loving without too much sex and the story was easy to follow like Jennifer Cruise book Bet Me.
The narrator was good. She wasn't boring and her voice fluctuated at the right moments. While I do use books to go to sleep it's the good narrators that allow that and plus when it's a good narrator I go back to the last thing I remembered while if the narrators voice was irritating and boring I immediately skip to the last chapter and hope that I can return the book.
I wouldn't say it moved me but one of my favorite parts was their reaction to their first kiss.
I really like this historical romance book. The story was good even if predictable, it was sexy but not sleazy and the story line was seamless. The characters are well done by the narrator and makes you wish for a sequel. Even if there are no sequels this book was good enough to make me look at reading or listening to the author more often.
When I think of dominatrix I think of a much stronger character in a female. The main female character lived a dual life which was fine regarding careers but personality I would have preferred her to be dominating in both. When you read dominating books w/males dominating they rule in their professional and love life. If you are looking for that I would not recommend this book. If you are looking for a love story w/a little bit of kink this may satisfy you.
It was manipulative, passionate, dominating and romantic in a twisted way. If you liked fifty shades of grey well this book will give you your credit worth. In some ways I loved the heroine and other ways she worked my nerves because she didn't seem strong enough but she was not stupid. I wouldn't want her best friend because sometimes you really will wonder who side is she on. Then the our leading male character is just that a character. He is someone that in the states that you would really consider putting a restraining order on but he's such a great lay that you'll be like "nevermind"...lol. I bought both books and hope that there will be another.
Even though you may read the reviews and they say this is an abridged work and some of the work is missing, it is a good book. If you haven't read the book, you may not know the difference. I did wish that the main female character would have had someone else trying to court her but this version makes it appear as though she had blind devotion. The male character her love interest frustrated me a lot. He was trying to make too many people happy. This story switches between past to present almost every chapter so if you don't like time jumping this is not the story for you. Overall it does what a story is suppose to do, makes you smile and sometimes frustrates you.
I love the strength of the heroine and the hero. They are indeed well matched.
I am a big fan of Judd. He knows he is strong but doesn't try to assert himself and tries to just stay in the shadows. Yet do not test him because he will deal with you swiftly if he chooses.
She did all the characters very well. You will be able to distinguish each character which is appreciated.
Yes, and I've listened to it several times.
Judd is a strong character, he is anti-social but you will love this man because at least you know when he does talk he actually makes sense. Breanna is a strong young lady who is a survivor but knows that she needs someone to lean on and she doesn't waste any time making that clear. You'll see characters from previously stories if you've listened to the first couple of books. As previously recommended try to listen to them in order. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
Fire meets ice.
Honestly I don't know what I can compare this book too.
She just does the character voices sooooo well.
This is my favorite book in the series. I have listened to it at least 7 times. I love the way things just kept building up and how they didn't just fall right into each other. The hero was having a hard time of letting go in his mind but his heart knew what was really right for him and the heroine who is really strong knew how to push buttons and keep it moving without seeming like she was desperate for him.
Her Future Love
I like that the story flowed smoothly. The love wasn't rushed, there wasn't a lot of sex yet there is passion.
The hero is kind of stalkerish but not in a bad way...LOL...but really he does just breaks into her room...
I would recommend reading the books in order. But alone this is a good book. Well written and the narrator is great.
This book is in my top 10 and it's only the second of the series and the first is also in the top 10 so that should say a lot.
Find out the details of Genevieve and the torture she went through and what she did to get her freedom. It was in best terms messed up but it was a necessary evil. After you listen I'm sure you would think to yourself, "heck yeah, I would have done that too"....
I listened to her in the first book, "Never Seduce a Scot" and I loved her in that book as well which is another reason why it made getting this book such a great decision. I wish I would have known about this book prior to spending a credit on a book recommend by the concierge.
I just loved that everything was so feasible. Nothing was too far fetched and seemed to be very realistic. Kirsten brought all the characters to life.
I would recommend this book and while I believe it would be best to listen to them in order this book could stand alone because it does answer any backdrop questions you may have while listening. You will go through a roller coaster of emotions...well at least I did. I laughed, got angry at some of the bad treatment of the heroine, and again as w/the other book got a little teary eyed.
I would listen to another book read by Kate Reading but am unsure if I would buy another Sophie Kinsella book.
The ending did nothing for me. If anything I would have asked for a better ending.
I am unsure if Kate is British but if not she did the accents well. I like that the men also sounded like men and not a woman trying to sound like a man.
If this book was a movie then I would be disappointed that someone decided to make another version of Bridget Jones Diary.
Overall this book was okay. If I would have never seen Bridget Jones Diary maybe I would have liked it more. But seeing how that wasn't the case I was not impressed. This will not be one that I would listen to over and over again. The main guy in this story didn't have enough character build up or background. The girl as someone else said did a lot of self talk as it was in...guess what...Bridget Jones Diary. If you want something w/a "brand new" storyline then I would not recommend this book. However if you don't mind a different version of an already good story this book will make you smile, some of you may even laugh.
By far this is one of the best listens. The narrator was great and the story flowed seamlessly.
I am not one to cry or be emotional but there were some tear jerker moments. I loved when she revealed the truth to Graeme. His reaction. The way the narrator did wonderful job w/speech deflection and it all seemed so real.
My favorite character would have been Evelyn. She was smart and brave. Even when things weren't going her way she was determined to not let those that oppose her see her at her weakest.
There were several moments in the book that moved me but to say may be a spoiler alert.
This was a well used credit. The narrator did the voices very well. The characters and the plot were well written. I only wish there was an epilogue at the end to say how Graeme's people treated her after everything was all said and done.
This is one of my favorite audio books and I have MANY! This is a wonderful story that answers some unanswered questions. I love seeing previous characters return in this story. It is now my favorite all the Elder Race series. I would recommend reading these stories in order.
Lord's Fall brings back Dragos and Pia. It answers questions brought up in Oracle's Moon. It reconciles relationships broken in Serpent's Kiss. You could compare this book to Dragon Bound because it's Dragos and Pia's story.
My favorite was the lovely thoughts that occurred when Dragos came to rescue Pia. The words were in-depth and you could only imagine the love that exist.
I am not an emotional person so there were no tears or outburst of laughter but I did smile many of times and I do recall going "awwww"...LOL.
The narrator was wonderful. The characters and story were well written. I loved all books except for Storm's Heart ( I think that's the name) but the rest of the series was indeed wonderful and I would recommend reading or listening to in order.
