    Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

    Story
    Where does Colters' Woman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Colters' Woman is probably my least favorite audiobook so far. I did not like the male narrator and the story while outlandish to begin with was even a little unrealistic in itself. The innocent virgin is not going to simply take on three men her first time and then wake up thinking this is a perfectly normal day with her husbands. I didn't mind the storyline but the characters could have been a little more realistic.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Freddie Bates’s performances?

    Probably not. I found that I definitely prefer female narrators for romance novels and his female voices were very coy and unrealistic. I also found that he had trouble keeping his character voices straight too. That did get better as the book went on.


    Any additional comments?

    Colters' Woman is about three brothers who have decided that they will commit themselves to a single woman. Holly the damsel in the story just happens to find herself unconscious outside their front door and when confronted with that prospect she seems to find it perfectly natural and is completely accepting. Yes the story is this outrageous. While I did enjoy the more suspenseful parts I really thought the story was lacking. The sex scenes were definitely HOT but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone new to the romance genre. I prefer Maya Banks other books but I do think I will continue to read (listen) the series. The storyline in the books to follow seem a little more on pace with more traditional romance.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I really liked the story line throughout the book, it kept it interesting leaving you wanting to listen more but the ending was a let down. It didn't really finalize anything. Normally you know where all the main characters are at the end. Since the other characters were so entwined in the story I thought you might get a little more about them. Also, the epilogue jumped around a lot. It's the first time I have ever read a flashback within the epilogue. Not to mention the extra parts at the end that really didn't seem to fit in and I really didn't see the purpose. I liked the section from his perspective but I think it would be more interesting to do the series from his perspective. I also didn't understand why it ended at that point. I don't know if it left me wanting more or just with more closure!
