I loved this book. I loved the story and the characters.
The narrator made it awesome!!! I hope Jill Shalvis and Karen White stick together and I can't wait for the next book.
The narration ruined it for me. I'm sure Romy Nordlinger is a wonderful person and is well suited for many books but not this one. She sounds much older than the character and I couldn't relate. At all!!! I'm sooo bummed. Please redo!!!
Lots to love.
1. Two ages -in college and out of college.
2. A great story with twists and turns and action.
3. A great romance.
4. A great humor. Loved the nickname "sour patch".
5. Great strong characters.
6. Great writing.
7. Super great narrators!!!
8. Even though it was a cliff hanger, the second book was out with the first and didn't have to wait so long I forgot what the first was about.
I loved the first book in the series. It had a story with some depth. I couldn't wait for the the next. I put up with "Wild Child" just so I knew what was going on even though the story line was a little weak but since it was a novella I didn't think much about it. This book was a complete letdown. The story was basically non existent and I couldn't wait for the whole thing to be over. I'm so sad that this was a bust for me.
It wasn't until the last 15 minutes that there was actually some story and then ended with a cliffhanger so that was irritating. I kept listening because I thought it would get better since it had a lot of good reviews but there was very little story line until the end. When there was nothing but sex on the wall, sex on the floor, sex in the shower, sex in the car, sex on the roof, sex at the office, and even some sex in a bed it got kind of boring after a while, if you can believe it. Now, I'm irritated that I would actually consider the next book just to find out what happens and I'm hoping I'll get past that by the time it is released.
The narrator wasn't horrible but I have heard better. She needs a little practice with her timing. Ugh about sums it all up.
Just kind of seemed like there wasn't much of a story and all sex and after a while it just got old. I seriously started fast forwarding through the sex. Who does that, right?
I really liked Volume 1 and this was kind of a predictable ending. I think the stories should have been combined because this was not strong enough to stand on its own. Still, if you want to know how it all plays this is entertaining. Just kind of uneventful..
I like the series and the author's writing but this one fell a little short in that there wasn't much of a story line. The whole thing was kind of "should I?" and "could I?" drug through the entire story. The narrators do a really good job so that helps. It's an ok listen if you have the credits.
This is about a guy who is the son of a hooker ( I think ) orphaned at 9 found roaming the halls of a hospital after his mom died where he was then found and adopted by a family and who later became addicted to drugs but then got clean and became a pompous bow tie wearing professor at a prestigous college. Enter adopted younger sister's best friend who fell madly in love with said professor when she was 17 and is now the student of this professor who wants her in return because she is so "pure" but she can't decide if she really wants him after pining for him for the last 8 years. And they have to sneak around due to the whole professor/student thing while she is deciding. The end. This is summed up in about 5 minutes then the rest of the tale is drug out for 24 hours listening and its just plain 'ol boring. It's the whole angst thing--"should I but I'm scared-want to but I don't know how-and in the meantime while I'm beating that dead horse lets hang from the rafters and have crazy monkey sex". Not only is the plot tired the story is just boring. Oh, yea--and she calls him Dante and he calls her Beatrice and a guy named Paul calls her Rabbit. And although they speak to each as if they are from the 1800's the f word is thrown in every once in a while to current it up a little. I'd be laughing if it wasn't so boring and unrealistic.
I normally would not feel qualified to write a review when I can't even finish the book but its just that cringe-worthy that it has to be said. I made it to half way thru the first download and was literally cringing. It's so corny. 1 star is a gift. A couple meets and in less than 24 hours they can't live without each other. "Natalie" had issues which turned her into your basic slut but supposedly got over them and isn't a slut anymore but for some reason is begging for sex in less than 12 hours after meeting a stranger on the beach. Luke, a self imposed recluse, falls madly in love with Natalie in less than 12 hours because she is so amazing. Why he thinks this? No clue. I am seriously laughing at how dumb this is. 1000 apologies if the story becomes amazing in the end but to me it is like nails down a chalkboard and I can't listen anymore.
As for the narrator, her female character sounds like baby talk at times. Dumb dialogue in baby talk....Cringe!!!! Coments like, "do you work out?" and "I like it when you wisper" and "so, no sex?' CRINNNNGGGGEEEEE.....!!!!!!
Written from the male point of view. Witty and clever dialogue, original, realistic, funny, endearing, sweet, very crude and everything else to make it AWESOME!!!! Best book on audible right now, in my humble opinion.
Sebastian York does an AWESOME job narrating as always. Totally makes it all work. Brilliant!!!
