I didn't make it very far, the narration is awful. Total waste of a credit.
** mild ending spoiler alert **
One one hand, I want to give this book 5 stars. I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the characters and the story. The narrators were awesome.
But, rating this as a romance, I am disappointed. There wasn't much chemistry b/w the H and h and the ending was a huge disappointment. It was abrupt and really only a "happy for now," with no declarations of any kind. If I knew there would be a second book with the same characters, I might rate this one higher.
I love the author's writing style, mostly. There are no cliches or cheesy nonsense.
I felt no chemistry b/w the poorly developed characters. The writing was on the trashy side. The male narrator took the Texas accent WAY too far. Not for me.
This was very sweet. The writing was too flowery, with lots of adjectives and adverbs, and that got on my nerves, but the actual story and characters were great.
I couldn't finish this one. It was so cheesy and the author's overuse of adverbs made me crazy. The narration was great.
The story was cheesy and cliche and the narrator sounded way too old to be the young character's age.
I didn't enjoy this as much as the first one, but it was still cute.
I did finish this book, so I guess that counts for something. The actual story was decent. The writing was not good, though. There was an over use of adverbs and that drove me insane. Lily was a very boring character. She is described as being feisty in the description, but she is not.
The narrator did a pretty good job with the men's voices, but his female voices were horrible. Lily sounded like an automaton.
I liked this sweet story. It was based on "insta-love," though, and I prefer a build up. The narrator was very good, except his voice for Matthew made him sound like a 65 year old man. That is my biggest pet peeve with narrators. I hate for young characters to sound old. I also didn't like his voice for Adam, Matthew's dad. He sounded 100 years old and like he was on death's door every second he spoke.
This book is, perhaps, the biggest disappointment of the year. Wallbanger is one if my top 3 reads of all time. This book was boring, crude, had a super annoying, unlikeable heroine, and had no chemistry between the H & h. With one hour left in the book, Viv was still wanting the cowboy. This read more like Chick Lit. The romance was lacking tremendously. I didn't care what happened to them by the end. :-( The narrator was pretty good. She is too breathy, though.
I know I am in the minority, but I just could not get into this book. The narration is great, but I felt zero chemistry between the characters. I also didn't really feel for them. DNF at chapter 12. :-(
