This is the second in the series that I've read, and while I liked the other book better this one definitely kept my interest. Aside from the "furries", which I only knew about because they did a CSI episode about them, which was a bit... well weird, it did add an element of humor later in the story between Spohie and Anatoly.
The story moved at a fairly good pace, and although several times in the middle I caught myself saying "Sophie is such an idiot" because really she was over looking things that were quite obvious for someone who is so smart she does some truly stupid things. But her interaction with the other characters make up for her short commings and the story held it's own for most of the book. I really wasn't sure who did it until seconds before it was revealed.
I LOVE the narrator, she does an excellent job with all the voices, and seems to capture the essence of Spohie quite nicely.
I will surely be getting the next in the series!
Heartbreaker is definitely typical Diana Palmer, although I found the hero a bit less likeable than most. Truthfully his reasoning for treating the heroine so badly was lacking at best. All this for me could be overlooked if not for the fact that the narrator sounded like she was all of 12.
In comparison to some other books, this narrator doesn't even attempt to change voice or inflections to denote other characters so basically it sounded like Telly all through out. Also, I am sure the choice was made to enhance Palmer's heroine's innocence, but her childlike voice was a bit "icky" during the romance scenes especially the ones with sexual descriptions. In the future maybe the narration should be shared by a female and male or someone who is more adept at voices and doesn't sound like maybe she should be reading Harriet The Spy.
"Let's Talk About Sex" is a great listen! As always Ms. Thompson's characters are believable, engaging and her story is great fun to listen to. Her books are full of romance as well as hot passion, and this one doesn't disappoint. The storyline I found was just a tad predictable, I had thought the solution to the problem at hand was rather obvious, but that minor flaw did not detract from the hours of enjoyment I got from listening to it.
