Some substance. I appreciated the descriptions of they ways of thinking and ways of doing things in the Scientology world but that's where the interest stopped. Throughout the entire book, Jenna began what sounded like it was going to be a huge story or atrocity of some sort just to fall lag into nothing. "I needed linens and I broke down in tears but then Donna got me some. Things weren't looking good and I didn't know where to go and then so so and showed me." Seriously, I was bored to death and felt like the majority of the book was full of useless and meaningless minute by minute accounts of her entire life.
No, most likely not.
She was so monotone. She had something very borning to perform and her delivery was borning.
The beginning, middle and the end.
Don't waste your money on this book. Can I get a refund?
Repetitive, irritating heroin, painfully too long.
The descriptions of the native way of life, philosophy, and language. I loved Hunter.
The smacking, swallowing, "old lady" voice, background door shutting and what sounded like dogs barking was so awful - I tolerated it but it was difficult. I found her tone was so dull that it took away from the story. She paused for so long and sometimes spoke so slowly and other times she just read along "normaly."
Oh God no! It was so long, sometimes I struggled to keep listenting.
Definately! It is so honest and well written. I decided to trust all the other reviews before me and I am so happy I did! It is hot and enticing, specific, but totally lovely! It is graphic in the most perfect and well written way. The love scense are tasefull and unique. It made me shudder more than once!!
How open and honest Ian and Beth are with each other. There's no games, no wondering how they feel - there's no embarrassment and you can hear that in the way the story is written and the delivery of the narrator. I found myself falling in love with this couple and just rooting for their happiness.
Her voice is perfect! She has a deep voice - never shrill. It is seductive and works perfectly for both male and female. She has a great flow - never too fast, never exaggerated and she speaks each charater in such a way that really helps portray their personalities.
Wicked Hot Indulgence!
Go have a hot, enticing listen that will satisfly all your "great book" expectations! This book feels like a vacation - I hope you enjoy it too!
The author's humor. She just is a master at wit, sass, and genuine humor. I am laughing out loud and finding myself just loving the charaters. She develops wonderful relationships and charaters.
Any of Julie Garwood's other Highland books. I think this is the third one I have listened to and I want to work my way through the rest. One thing I really admire about the author is that not all the books are the same. The stories are different, the charaters personalities are different and each book is unique. I don't like it when you read several books by the same author and you can recognize repeated phrases or descriptions. I don't find that in Ms. Garwood's books.
Hmmm, that's a hard one. I loved Jamie, Alec and the priest. I love Jamie's strength and spit and vinegar! I loved Alec's banter with his men and his patience/tenderness with Jamie. I also admired the priest and how he creatively helped to nurture both Jamie and Alec's relationship.
This is a very enjoyable romance with enough wit and humor to keep you very engaged. The performance (narrator) is perfect as well.
A better narrator. Very honestly, he ruined the entire book for me.
I didn't make it to the end of the book before I lost interest and started a different story.
No emotion! It sounded like this was the first time he had ever read the book. He was monotone and just terrible.
All charaters were fine - wouldn't cut any.
It is too bad that there wasn't a better narrator. A good narrator could have made this simple, sweet story MUCH more enjoyable and worth the money. Save your money and read the book to yourself.
Romantic, Sassy, Engaging.
I love a spirited woman and Judith was beautifully developed with a nice blend of compassion, spirit, and humility. I also enjoyed the humor in the story - many times I laughed out loud! I really loved all the charaters - Ian was strong but tender and so respectful.
I haven't listened to her before but I totally enjoyed listening to her and definately look forward to listening to her again.
Definately made me laugh and when I had to put the book on pause, I couldn't wait until the time I could begin to listen again.
I really enjoyed this story - my first Julie Garwood book but won't be my last. She writes a great book. I loved the charaters, the romance was very sweet and perfectly (and respectfully) graphic. The narrator only added to the story making it very enjoyable - I didn't want it to end. I wish the next book was avaliable "Ransom" and read by the same narrator!
I have not read the print version but I loved the audio and the readers accent was beautiful!
The author's descriptions and charater development. I felt like I could "see" everything and her descriptions felt so "real". I dislike predicitable stories and this was far from that!! I really enjoyed that I was often wrong in my assumption of what was going to happen or how a certain charater would react.
The way of the English. She just sounded so proper and demure. Her voice sounded like butter and I really enjoyed it! She did such a fantastic job that I added other books she has narrated to my wish list. Good job Elizabeth!!
This book is not for the faint of heart. This is not a "romantic" story in fact it has much more to offer in the ways of spankings, beatings, and slave training than actual sexual encounters or mind blowing orgasims. It is worth the money and was a good listen if you are open minded to this genre. I wish her other books were available and read by Elizabeth Jasicki.
