I bought this book in paper back and couldn't get through it. I don't know why I thought an audio book would be different. It was just as bad. I like gay porn, I however, do not like to read an entire book that is seemingly based on it. It's really geared for readers who like nothing more than to sit down to Anne Rice's slow writing style and hear about gay relationships. Oh, how it drags and drags. Don't waste your credit the intro is better than the entire book. I'd give it no stars if I could.
I haven't connected with an author, with a book like this in a very long time. As a former restaurateur myself and woman, she tells her story beautifully. Food service isn't an easy life but her passion is exemplary. It reminds me of my passion and the passion of others like me. Someone who truly enjoys food, appreciates food and relishes restaurant work is enlightening. Thank you Gabrielle for shining a light on women who are badass but more than that get shit done, do their time and earn respect. I have never eaten your food but I wholeheartedly believe that you are one of the best chefs I have never met. Given my 20+ years in F&B I've met some amazing cooks and amazing people, I will count you as one. I will also recommend your book to any and everyone I work with and meet. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I'm really pretty much done with books inspired by Twilight, so no to the E.L. James thing. I'm sure Becca Bettoe has other performances that aren't so young, so I would try her again.
Meh, it is literary junk food. It's no war and peace but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever read.
Please authors just know when to stop, no one needs endings that keep on going. The ending here, where it goes far into Grey's perspective is too long and verbose.
Sure, if they liked and read the first one.
This book has a bit more of a plot than the previous one, I rather enjoyed getting to know why 50 is so f*cked up. There is more going on, more character development and that makes it, to me, a better book.
and that's just how I like my erotica. The plot wasn't amazing in this book but there was lots and lots of sex and that ain't bad. I really like having someone read smut to me. I wasn't going to read it because it's too mainstream for me and frankly I really don't see the big deal but 50,000 horny housewives aren't wrong, it's an alright book. Great if you aren't hoping for something it's not. I wasn't looking for the next War and Peace so I am satisfied.
Sure if that's what they're looking for.
If it were played out in my bedroom.
That he is telling his own stories.
I'm really glad Tucker Max isn't going to stop writing but I'm really glad he is going to stop writing satire. This book wasn't as funny as the other 2 but I'm not sorry that I read it. Still funny, still kinda believable or not. I don't care if the stories are real or not, he is funny.
I bought 2 Molly Harper books. While reading the first, Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs, I wondered if she had an original thought in her head. This book proves to me that she does but they are very few. It's like she is working from a template for fantasy. Or, she's trying to create one. In both books I skipped parts because they were too predictable. I skipped the entire climax of the book and missed nothing. I could not bear to listen to some other authors ripped off idea here. If you've never listened to fantasy, you probably won't be bothered by her rip off style of writing but, if you are very well read in fantasy you'll want to gouge your ears out. I am not offended enough to never buy another Molly Harper book but I'm close. Maybe one day she'll have a book full of original thoughts and not stolen ideas.
No, not really. It has it's entertaining moments but overall save your credit.
I love this series! >>
I have really started to like Trent and Rachel together, the loss of Ceri really pisses me off though. And yet she kept Elspeth...Ah whatever, it all makes a really good book. I don't want this series to end although I know it has to at some point. Maybe this is it?
I called who her nemesis was before she (the main character) ever even put the pieces together. Maybe I've read to many vampire books, maybe I've got super psychic powers, maybe I'm tired of the same story being rewritten by every author trying to write fantasy. The story was transparent at best. I don't dislike the characters, I would read other books from this series. But, c'mon! Give me a break. Girl gets turned by accident, just like Anna Strong. Girl figures out she can kick ass, cue Rachel Morgan, Sookie Stackhouse, and every other heroine in the genre. Girl gets a boyfriend, please don't make me explain why this smacks of every other book I've read. A vampire bridesmaid well, now there's a twist. Finally!
I can't even begin to start here.
There wouldn't be much of a book left.
...I suffered through 4 books of descriptive feasts for this! Are you fucking kidding me!!! I don't dislike this series or this book per se but give me a break. This series ends, I mean just ends and it's horseshit! I demand a resolution, I demand that Daenerys take over the world. Hell, I demand to know what happens to her on the Dothraki sea. Ugh! This book infuriates me as an ending. I feel like there should be at least 1 more book. What a crap ending to a long, arduous series. I did not read 5 books that were 3 + inches thick for this!
WRITE AN APPROPRIATE ENDING!
Meh, it was fair to midland at best.
If there is one thing I hate more than a crappy narrator it is when the book series suddenly changes mid way through. The voice of our character is no longer here, none of then are.
The book itself is in keeping with the quality of the series and I like it a lot. I really like the new characters she brings in almost every book, the pace is good but the narrator is bad, bad, bad compared to the last ones.
