She did an awesome job! This is only my 3rd or 4th book in which I listened to Rosalyn Landor and with the exception of Then Came You she's a good narrator.
LOL.. One reviewer gave this book 3 stars because Penelope and Bourne weren't in it enough. That's just crazy. This was Pippa and Cross/Jasper's story. Why would Penelope and Bourne be in it at all? This was a wonderful story and I loved every single word of it. Pippa was a scientist and Cross was needed for her study on how to entice her husband-to-be. I loved her silliness and her clumsiness. I loved Cross' angst and his feelings that he wasn't good enough for Pippa and even if he didn't kiss her until 68% he did a whole lot more without touching her. It was spectacular! I recommend this and A Rogue by any Other Name to all romance readers who like great sex in their books and great stories of love and romance.
What a really great read. A wonderful addition to the Montgomery Justice series. Loved Gabe and Deb. Loved Ashley, she was one brave 16 year old. Liked Floyd, Mylo and Niko. I even liked Ernie and was sorry when he was killed but not surprised. And I was so surprised at the appearance of a character from In Her Sights (not telling you who.) As to the bad guys, Jeff Gasmerati, The Warden (one sick puppy), Sheriff Tower and the Russian? They all got exactly what they deserved. This was a real page turner and I was up until 3:00am reading it and then finished it today while I had my morning coffee. It's just a shame that Ms. Perini takes a year or more to write the next book. Had I known that I truly doubt I would have started the series. I really need to pay better attention when I start a series and make sure all the books are out before I start them. By the time the next book comes out I will have forgotten what the others' were about. Bummer.. None of the books are cliffhangers but you have to keep reading if you want to know about each Montgomery man. So, another 3 years before the six brothers have their own book. And then there's Whitney, the half sister, so maybe 4 years. That's way to much waiting so this one is it for me.
As to the narrator: This is the first time I've listened to Todd Haberkorn but I would definitely listen to him again. He did a great job on the voices and he had terrific emotions. He laughed, murmured, whispered, yelled, you name it and he did it. Just like a narrator aught to do.
Loved this book. A lot of the lower reviews didn't like it because it wasn't "believable." Really? Do we really have to have a FICTIONAL mystery/romance NOVEL be believable? If I want believable I'll just pop over to the non-fiction. I know a lot of you don't like the "jumping around" but I do. I get tired of just the hero and heroine being on every single page and reading all about their angsty feelings all the time.
I liked the few minutes of Khalid, that murderous creep. And Farzam, that insane creep. The attempt by the two pilots. The time spent with that killer Brad Walters. All this helped to keep me turning pages to see what would happen next.
All the Montgomery's, Zach, Gabe, Seth, Luke, Jazz, Caleb and Anna were fantastic. And I was so happy for John and Anna, too.
Zach and Jenna were an awesome twosome and I thought Sam acted like any normal 5 year old.
So, I'm off to read Gabe's story, Game of Fear. I know I'll like it as much as I did this one.
Oh, and this had just enough sexual tention and sex to make it a really good read.
As to the narrator: Mr. Podehl did a fantastic job. Not once did I cringe when he did a female's voice. I would definitely listen to him again.
I'm so glad I ignored the 32 one and two star reviews and went with the 376 four and five star reviews. I loved everything about this book. I especially loved Logan. What he went through with with Lovey-Dovey was just awful. I loved Dani, too. She was so strong and sassy and funny. Loved little Regan, too. Had some great secondary characters too: Maria, Buchanan, Ken and Barbie and poor Eli. And then there was Ballard! What a creep he was.
It had some nice sensual, sexual moments that were nicely written. I would definitely read this author again.
As to the narrators: They did a spectacular job and the voices. THAT being said,
I think the whole thing was just stupid! I was exicited to hear a male and female narrator, thinking she would read the female parts and he would do the males. Umm, NO!! They just took turns reading a chapter or a few paragraphs, doing both the males and females voices. WTH was the point in that, I ask you? It wouldn't stop me from listening to two narrators again but I just don't see why they would have two narrators for one book.
This was a pretty good murder mystery and love story, very sensual and sexual. I really liked Boyd and Hayden.
I liked Morgan and Grace, too. AND, oddly enough, I liked Josh, even though he was dead throughout the book.
I figured out who the killer was early on but it was still a good drama. I would recommend this book and read this author again.
As to the narrator: Alexander Cendese did a wonderful job. The men sounded like men and the women sounded like women. Every person had their own distinct voice. I would definitely listen to him again.
I should have known when the voices of Dan and Manny, the two from the animal shelter, came about that this narrator was going to suck. She uses her own voice no matter who's talking. They described Max and being as big as big foot but everytime he talked he sounded just like a girl, just like the narrator's voice. I'm only at 22% but I'm done listening to this terrible narrator. I'll just finish it by reading the book. She just ruins it. What a bummer.I looked at the reviews of other books she's narrated and every one of them rave about what a good job she did on Kate's voice, or Kara's or some other female. No one raved about the men because she doesn't attempt to sound like a man. I will never listen to this narrator again. I gave it 3 stars for the story alone. I'll leave my review of the book on Amazon when I finish READING it.
I loved this book. It was romantic, sensual, sexual and a murder mystery. I would never have guessed who the killer was and I was so shocked to find out. I kept trying to figure out who the bad guy was and I did not guess anywhere near the right person.
Loved Conor and Louisa. Cusack was an ass. Jackson and Ianelli were jerks until they realized Conor was not the killer. And I really liked Damian, Pat and Jayne. An all-around great read.
This is my first read by Ms. Leigh but it won't be the last.
As to the narrator: I'm not one for male narrators but Mr. Naramore did a super, super job with his reading. The men had their own voices and the women sounded just like women, with different voices and different personalities that you could actually hear. I look forward to listening to him again.
I loved everything about this book. It was much better than A Laird for Christmas. I was happy Jules got his strength back in the seven months that had passed since the first book was supposed to have taken place. I really liked Jules in the first book and couldn't wait to read his story.
I have to admit I was surprised to see who the bad guy was. I would never have guessed that. And, Claire was simply a great heroine.
It was nice seeing Nicholas, Jane, Hollister and Lady Margaret again. I really enjoyed this book.
AND, it had some great sex in it, too.
I got this book free with my KindleUnlimited subscription.
As to the narrator: Usually Ms. Eyre does a really great job but I wasn't thrilled with her voices in this book. She did make the men sound like men but some of them sounded a old when they weren't. I would still listen to anything Ms. Eyre narrates because she usually wonderful.
I would be hard-pressed to say which of these books are my favorite. I love all the characters involved: Bastian, Marcus, Roland, Seth, David, Melanie, Jenna, Ami, Chris, etc. And I'm so happy that Cliff hasn't gone insane yet and I hope he never does.
I really love, love, loved Zach and Lizette, an awesome twosome for sure.
The one thing that I really, really, really love about this series is that fact that the end of the book leaves it open for another book but it's never a cliffhanger. I absolutely hate those. AND these books have some incredible sex in them.
I hope we're not going to have to wait another (almost) year for the next in the series.
As to the narrator: Ms. Potter did an awesome job. Every person had their own voice and personality. I never get tired of listening to her.
Yeah, it was a little cheesy and it did smack of the bachelorette but it was still kind of cute and silly. I do get tired af all the drama in all the romance novels all the time so this was sort of a nice change.
I did like all the players: Lady Margaret, Nicholas, Jane, Colin, David, Jules, Hollister and, eventually, Bryce.
And there was the mystery of who was trying to kill Jane. I KNOW that none of you readers can honestly say you saw that coming!
The only part I was really bothered by was that after Jane "slept" with Nicholas twice she still insisted on going on with the competition and left him wondering if she would choose him. I thought that was a little rediculous.
As to the narrator: I know a lot of you think Ms. Flosnik is "oh, so wonderful" but I can only see her as barely ok. She doesn't have much emotion when she reads and she kinda' sucks at the men's voices. They all sound alike and all gravelly when they talk. I don't mind that they all sound alike but I hate the gravelly sound she gives them. Maybe it's because it makes them all sound like old men. I'am glad that Justine Eyre is reading the next book.
Over all, this was a good story but I have to admit that I skimmed a LOT of it, as I did with all of them.
I loved all the characters, Wick, J.J, Venom, Mac, Bastian, Rikar, Sloan, and all their women. But, there was soooo much filler.
From the very beginning of the book there was a plan to go get JJ from the hospital, that's how chapter 1 started and it took all the way to (about) page 120 before they ever got her. There was so much BS going on! Going to the club to find a woman for energy, 20 or 30 pages of that nonsense. Then Wick going outside all loopy, another 15 or so pages, then at the hospital it took another 30 or so pages before Wick ever touched her. I must have skimmed about 75 to 100 pages and that's really not good. I don't mind a little filler, that kind of goes with all books, but there was really no reason for this book to have over 400 pages and 12 and a half hours of (not so much) listening pleasure. I did like this group of dragon/men but I just can't see myself reading anymore from the author. And, if it's the publisher telling her they want 400 pages plus it's time to get a new publisher.
As to the narrator: Mr. Darcie did a fine job. He's still a little iffy when it comes to the women's voices but he does try his best and that's all I can ask.
