The main character always talked about sticking to her guns, but every time she caved. She was moody, weak, dumb, and thoroughly unlikable. All the other "good guy" characters were well written. I would try this author again...If she could write her heroine as well as her hero. The main characters "good" brother was a weak, backstabbing, louse as well. The author shows promise, maybe next time.
The heroine was weak
Probably not, just because there are so many books out there.
Every person in the book had flaws and likable traits. She is good at exploring how most people will react to any situation differently from others and the stories behind why.
Her voice is unique, pleasant, and flowed well with the story line.
There were some very funny parts, but none that made me laugh out loud.
I would recommend this. it was suspenseful and kept me interested the whole way through. I was a little mad at the husband.
Her main character had some glimpses of having a backbone. She was starting to become her own person after having been a doormat all her life. She never financially supported herself though. Everything she ever had was given to her even though she was intelligent and could easily have been more self supporting. Her father was an emotionally unsupportive, self absorbed ass.
This was my first. I might give her another try. I prefer strong main characters who fight the good fight, instead of weak people who are handed everything, then thrust out on their own.
The girl who wanted to start the website was good except for being too angry. The main male character was ok.
No, I'm already a strong self supportive person.
I really wanted to like this book. There are parts of it I liked a lot. The main character started to become a strong person, but then just fell back into the same patterns she started with. She is like the women at the country club that I don't like because they are just window dressing.
I build things at work, so I can only listen to them because I need my hands to turn screws. I think they are similar. Audio is better only because it's hands free.
I enjoy Julie Garwoods' writing style. I usually am quite entertained by her female leads strength and drive to accomplish difficult goals. The Heroine was very likable. The hero probably would have been too, without the creepy whispering voice for him.
Her voice is nice, I enjoy her accent. her inflection and the creepy whispering for the male lead were off putting.
I am a glutton with books. I want to listen to/read all of them in one sitting.
Susan Duerden has a pleasant voice, I would probably like listening to her again, if she changed up her inflections more and got rid of the creepy man whisper.
If the main female character had been a stronger person and not so wishy/washy. If the sex left a little more to the imagination
It seemed rushed, like she just wanted the story done with. Anticlimactic.
I have not. She did a good job her voice is pleasant.
it was disappointing. Usually Ms Garwood does much better. Ransom is what made me give romance novels another try.
I really like Julie Garwood, this just wasn't her best effort. Usually her main characters are pretty fearless after coming from tragedy. I will purchase her books again. Every one can't get knocked out of the park every time.
I had to really concentrate to her what he was saying because he slurs his words so bad. I kept having to rewind and re listen to figure out what he was saying.
The story flowed well. It was enough of a mystery to keep me interested enough to hear the whole thing. The romantic sections weren't too explicit. I never had to hear the word nipple, manhood, or the phrase "to the core". Which I appreciate greatly.
Sure, as long as the guy reading it isn't drunk.
Shandon loring could be awesome if he enunciated. When he wasn't doing the super deep voice and slurring he sounded ok.
The main characters were strong and smart. The tale had loads of substance and plot. It wasn't just about two idiots pining over each other.
Taylor, because she wasn't an idiot. She was a good strong Lead.
Taylor. She has a good accent for British society. Her american man accent needed a little work at first.
Daniel/David Switching names was inventive and fun.
