The plot compared to the other two in the series is deep,complex and realistic. The sex is hot (the narrator did a great job) although it is not as hot as Start Me Up.
This book was average for one reason. Aidan. She drove me up a wall. Her inner monologue of "old Aidan" did that and "new Aidan" wants this. Re..dun..dant. And the writing for her had me wanting to wring her neck. Yes we know Jet's pants are tighter than your's. I didn't start liking her until the last 2 hours. It's like 2 different people wrote the parts. The narrator for Aidan was ok but just ok. I wish I could post a gif to fully express how lame she was for 80% of the book.Now Jet's character was well thought out. His internal monologue was interesting and to the point. Also the narrator was much much better. Jet had some really terrific lines that will melt your heart.There a few hot parts, but I was so irriatated at Aidan that they fell short. Thier first encounter in the club bathroom and the last one in the hotel were the best, the rest was filler. I really hope Rowdy or Rome's story is better and there's a little comic or lighthearted relief to break up the borderline teenage angst that this book has.
This book was beyond boring maybe it was the monotone narrator? Maybe it was the repetitive words? Maybe it was both but my word I wanted to find some cyanide. I'm not opposed to the C word. I'm not opposed to any word when used in the right context or by a character that would use it. But sweet baby jujubes there are a plethora of adjectives for a woman's nether regions to choose from.
Definitely not. I'm a peddler of romance, erotica and smut.
Rivers male voice was so utterly boring. Scenes that should have lit my panties on fire made me close my eyes. Maybe she took a sedative to chlllout before reading it? Who knows.
Ummmm the premise was good? I went to Goodreads and there are lots of positive reviews so I may give the written version a whirl at some point.
This is definitely in my listen again list. BTW Audible should create a lists option in the app. Don is such a lovably infuriating guy who will simultaneously make you laugh and a little sad.
The speed dating scene was really funny. "I've sequenced the questions for maximum speed of elimination,’ I explained. ‘I believe I can eliminate most women in less than forty seconds. Then you can choose the topic of discussion for the remaining time."
Also everytime time he correctly (bc obviously he would never be wrong) determines someone's BMI I chuckled.
Questions for the "Wife Project".
The narration is superb and a follow up story to...well, if I tell you that would spoil the fun, would be awesome. This quirky book will make your heart melt and your face hurt from smiling and laughing.
Jonathan R. Cole should narrate all hunky British men, I'm looking at you Redheaded Series. Sweet baby cheesus and all the wise guys he could read stock quotes and I'd listen. And when he calls her Petal...*fans face* Max Stella could take me ehhummm.
The end. We all know these types of stories end happy, that's why we listen. Well that and the ummm well let's put it this way: Night Club, Roof Top, Restaurant, Warehouse, Charity Party, Taxi, Office and I won't reveal the best because spoilers.
Max - "You could break my heart just know that, yeah" Now imagine the sexiest British accent saying that "yeah".
The story was engaging and the writing was excellent. The characters had purpose and the sex didn't overwhelm the story. Perfect blend of erotica and romance, much better than Beautiful Bastard. Now what are you waiting for go put that credit to good use.
Ronconi is not only one of the best female narrators but one of the best narrators period. She does an amazing job infusing life into even the smallest roles and her male voices are fantastic. Rhythm and Blues is no different, each character is nuissanced and with Harper's sharp wit will keep you chuckling throughout the whole listen.
I would have given 5 stars for story but felt a little let down that it was so short, the character development could have been a bit more elaborated on. This short but sweet listen was full of fun, chuckles and just the right amount of sweetness without being overly saccarhin. Harper and Ronconi are a team made in audio heaven.
By Clayton yes by Lefkovitz no.
That I couldn't finish due to the narration.
Lorelei King, Amanda Ronconi or Heather Smith who narrarated Wallbanger.
I wish I could have made it through enough of the book to answer this question.
When the main character is a sexy British accented man, that accent MUST be done. In fact the whole point to listening to a work of fiction is the different voices, otherwise it's just someone reading a story. Not one voice could be delianated from another.
This is no Wallbanger.
I'm having a really hard time finishing the book due to the narrators inability to breathe quietly. At the end of nearly every sentence it's sounds as if she is taking a deep breath before going underwater. It's a shame the editor or sound technician couldn't have removed the problem because her voices and cadence are pretty good. Rachel Gibson's stories are cute and fluffy perfect for when you want to escape into an idyllic world but I'm not sure if I can bring myself to finish this one.
There is literally a boat load of characters. The time jumps would not have been a problem but each leap introduced someone new making the characters vague. I felt disconnected from the characters because of the mélange of storylines.
I enjoyed all of Dahl's previous books. They are light and sweet with a dash of steam. But this book was unlistenable due to the narrator.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy the same book, although considerably longer, again. However DP and LC have never let me down. The vivid description of the land (who new corn could be described so eloquently) and the off beat motley group of characters, narrated by the man behind the curtain the Great Oz himself, Scott Brick was brilliant.
