First, I should note that I love Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation books. Getting a chance to see inside the head of "Turnip" Fitzhugh was priceless. I loved all of the actions revolving around fruitcake. I will certainly listen to this one again.
This was a cute book and an easy listen. It isn't a book that I loved, and I doubt I would listen to it again, but it was OK.
I felt like the heroine was wimpy, unable to stand firm in her own point of view. I got the impression that the hero was going to do what he wanted regardless of what she wanted, even if the situation turned coercive. This book may be a good fit for erotica fans, but it wasn't what I wanted.
The narrator speaks too slowly, I had to increase the speed to 1.25 just to avoid going crazy.
In my opinion, the heroine, Aisling Gray, is terminally stupid. In the first few chapters especially, she keeps doing things that any half-sane, thinking woman would not. I also disliked the narration. Although the characterization was good, I could hear the narrator swallowing every 30 seconds.
