The narrator did well enough. I don't consider her one of the best in the business but she does well and keeps the story moving and engaging.
I was surprised by the story after the authors introduction about how this story wasn't supposed to be very good being one of her earlier works. I found the story engaging and interesting. I liked it enough to get the second book in the series.
For a basic and easy read this is a fine book. I wouldn't rave about this book or make a point to tell a friend about the book.
I really dislike romances that don't allow relationships to develop. I feel that this is an easy out for the writer. I like more interaction between the love interests. I want to be able to feel that I was there while the couple grew to know each other and when the book ends feel that the relationship, if real, would last.
I liked that the Monica is a hardworking woman. I like that she has emotional flaws.
It wasn't painful to listen to but not a great listen. I had nothing better to listen to while working so I listened to the entire book, other wise I would have given up on it part of the way through it.
I felt that the story was too immature. There was no real exploration of the characters, they just wanted each other for no explainable reason. I felt that the story was a decent outline of a what could have been a good story if the characters could have been allowed to develop over time.
I have read and listened to many books and this was just too weak of a story line to really like or enjoy.
I loved that the story is a really well written book. And even though the cover give the idea of lots of sex - it is very clean. I let my 14 year daughter listen and she loves them.
Hard to put down
If you are of a more conservative in the content you like to listen to don't let the "covers" put you off- very enjoyable and clean. If you need lots of sex in your books - this isn't for you.
Great book-fun listen. I'm on book 5 and still enjoying them.
Rosenblat is a master in the business. She adds to the story in such a way that it would almost be a shame to read the book and miss out on her performance.
The story is fun and light. Not too easy to figure out yet not so difficult that you end the book trying to figure out just how all the pieces were propertied to fit together. The story is good, but the addition of Rosenblat as the narrator makes it performance that should not be missed.
This is the first book of Sandra Brown that I have either listened to or read. And I am curious to listen to another to see what else she has to offer. This book was intense I found myself almost agitated by the events like I had been apart of them in some small degree.
I could see Breath of Scandal on Lifetime.
This book had some intense moments. I think it would be difficult for anyone who had been a victim themselves in a violent crime. I found myself being drawn into the story and sharing the characters sense of impotence when all normal avenues of help and justice were shut to her.
