I LOVED the first two books and this one was written as if R Donovan HAD to write the third book to complete a trilogy and not because she had much interesting to say. A lot of very little significance takes up pages after pages and to top that, the chapter does not get efficiently and completely closed with Jonathan in this book either. The listeners are supposed to draw their own conclusions with the grandmother at the end when all told about her is that she holds Emma tightly for a hello. I wish more time was spent in developing that relationship as well as the uncle and his family as well as Jonathan and less time with silly parties and other none-seneschal parts that add no more to the story. I bought the other two books last week and waiting less than a week for the third book was not fun. The anticipation was too much and the book fell quite short. The only story that ends properly is with Evan. I give this book a C-
Good storyline, great character development and naughty sex scenes. I liked almost everything about this book and the reason the overall and storylines are not fives is because of the bit of mind rambling done by T A Warren. I don’t like listening to too much thought blabber and this book had a bit more than I care to see in my books. Other than that, I truly enjoyed this book and especially the possessiveness of the hero and his competitiveness with other male characters in the book. The jealousies added an extra bit of spice to the story.
The book started with what could have been a great story and as quickly turned completely flat. I felt little to no urges, nor found any bouts of excitement at the thought of getting back to the book after every pause or break. The only excitement, I admit, was to get the experience over with by fast forward listening through parts. The story was not at all gripping and I found myself wondering what type of listener actually gave this 4-5 stars. My opinion? Don’t waist your credit on this book. Move on.
I read book two in the series first and absolutely loved it. Yes T A Warren did drag the story in parts and repeats sentiments and feeling but overall I enjoyed the book. I then purchased book 3 and liked that one as well. Since this book appeared on sale for 4.99, I decided to give it a shot. Nothing much happened the first almost half of the story and as I was about to give up on the book, it finally became interesting. At the end, the only 5 stars I would give this book will have to go to Bianca Amato. Her performance was WONDERFUL.
The story was pretty good but JM goes on and on with repetitive thoughts, so much so that scenes are chopped up almost after every sentence, therefore making it hard and frustrating to follow. Very disappointed because the storyline had so much potential, but it was so exasperating to go through scenes where I wanted to know what was to happen next only to face the same thoughts repeated multiple times. It made it difficult to really get into the book. I also found it strange that the clan didn’t even recognize their laird’s daughters? Don't waist a credit.
I love the picture chosen for this book but similar to book one in the series, this one had zero passion and the love story developed literally over two dates. Don’t see that happening in real life so it was hard for me to totally get into a story where the main characters were SOOOO in love so quickly. Weak action sprinkled here and there and good narration. Not sure if I can recommend it as great work of action or romance, but it was entertaining enough.
The storyline was great and the small injection of suspense was an added touch. I only wish there was a bit more passion mixed in since I felt the story could have been so much better with that addition. The narrator also did a very nice job with the characters but his voice for the prince was superb. It was hard not to imagine Antonio Banderas for that personality. The second story in the series is about the prince so even though I am certain the passion will be lacking, thanks to the narrator, I will have to purchase that book as well.
I usually read a lot of historical romance but since there was a 4.95 sale, I ended up buying a few books off of the romance list and this was one of them. Though not a huge fan of modern romance, I actually really enjoyed this book. S London is very funny and I caught myself laughing out loud throughout the story. A very light and entertaining book, although love got introduced very quickly. Regardless, it is definitely worth a credit even without a sale.
Beauty wins over the love of a Scottish Laird who has been brainwashed all his life to hate the English. The first half of the story is very engaging and entertaining and after the second half starts not a whole lot happens that adds to the story. It stays stagnant almost to about two chapters to the end where it picks up again. I still enjoyed the story overall and felt that the narrator did a good job as well.
The story was not bad but it was just sprinkled fully with drama at every corner of the book. I absolutely feel drained. Also, the narrator made funny pauses while reading a sentence that broke it into unnecessary sections. A bit distracting. Be prepared for drama if you purchase this book.
It was an OK love story. The story covers the span of about a week, whereby the hero and heroin manage to fall madly in love within about two days. Hmmmm. Ok. I get it. Vampires, werewolves are all made up and we choose to not only read about them but also enjoy the process and even wish it were true. Now on top of that adding a two day love story is a bit hard to swallow, especially when,…. Just kidding. Not about to tell you what happens but believe me when I say not much. It’s a very mediocre story mixed with ok writing.
