The story itself was okay but seriously, listening to erotic sex scenes while the narrator talks in a monotone totally ruined it for me. Audible would do well to re-do the book with a different narrator.
I consider myself pretty open minded & like a good erotic story as much as the next girl but even I found it hard listening to this book. How the lead character could allow such painful acts to be done to her made me cringe. I can understand the dominant / submissive relationship & a bit of erotic pain / pleasure play but this didn't seem to be about pleasure at all. I just couldn't understand why anyone would willingly take some of the acts performed on her it was just too extreme for me.
I love Christine d'Arbo's books, they are always steaming hot & have a great story to go with the scorching sex scenes. Sexcapades was another fabulous story but unfortunately the narrator really killed it for me. I've listened to over 300 books now & I've never come across another narrator who managed to sound bored while she was reading the sex scenes. Most narrators manage to get you so into the book its like you are there living the story with the characters, this one sounded like she was reading from cue cards & badly at that. No change in voice for male or female characters so it was sometimes difficult to tell which character was speaking. PLEASE audible record it again with a different narrator you have done Christine d'Arbo a disservice.
Someone who is looking for a really bad romance.
The entire premise of the story was so far fetched & the main character so pathetic I can't believe I even listened to the entire book. I kept hoping it would get better!
Not having a narrator with such a broad Australian accent. I am a Kiwi & used to an Australian accent but this narrator was awful.
Wow, I've listened to many erotic novels by now but this one took my breath away. The sex scenes were fantastic. Do not listen while driving you will be totally distracted!
A good romance with some fun characters. I particularly liked the banter between the main character & her man. Sadly disappointing if you bought it because it was in the erotic section. Still a good listen.
I don't think I've heard a more pathetic story. It really is not worth buying, don't waste your money.
