This is one of my favorite eBooks, and I bought the book because the sequel gets released next week and I don't have time to re-read it before it's released. So the story is great, but the audio ruins it for me. I dislike the narrator immensely. If I had paid more that 2 bucks for this I'd be ranting right now, but I am so disappointed. I am literally 5 minutes in and want to scratched my eardrums out. I don't think I will be able to finish this one and that irks the hell out of me cuz I have 8 more hours of work!
I don't think they try to match the voice with the character in the book. This Dara Rosenberg would be better suited in a quirky comedy like the vampire Molly Harper cooks and not a contemporary romance.
anyone with a smoother voice. her raspy one annoyed me. I like Jill Redfield from the Crossfire novels or I like Grace Grant and Justine O'Keefe. Um, I'd even pick the lady who handed me my Egg McMuffin through the drive through this morning.
The story is the redeeming quality.
The narrator ruined it. I'm only a few minutes in it and it's already like finger nails on a chalkboard. She sounds like she's doing a comedy routine on a stage. After the one liners I almost expect to hear a rim shot. And she did not even attempt the lead characters British accent. Hello? Seriously? They paid this lady? They should re-do this version and have the people from the Beautiful Bastard books hire the narrator.
I would compare the story to the Love Unscripted series by Tina Reber. I like the book, as I mentioned. I just wanted to listen to the audio while I work. So disappointed.
Ummmm, just about anyone. I would pick the lady at the McDonalds drive up over this chick. Again, I would suggestion the cast from the Beautiful Bastard series.
I wouldn't change anything about the book. Big fan of it.
I like the story, but found the narrator's voices annoying to the point that I fast forwarded through scenes where she did her best friends voice and any non-Aiden scenes.
i really don't have a favorite female narrator, though I can say for sure I'm not a fan of Justine O. Keef.
ummmm, maybe a lifetime movie with Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. LOL
I hate change. I mean, really hate it. Why would they use the same narrator for 5 freaking books then change on the 6th. Please redo this and go back to Cynthia Holloway. I feel lost. I hate this narrators male voices. They annoy the hell out of me infact. I am disappointed that I wasted a credit on this purchase. If only I had a time machine. That's it. From now on I am not buying a series book until I read the reviews and compare narrators. All I can say is they better not pull this crap with the J.R. Ward Brotherhood series. Heads will roll!!!
Seriously, the change of narrator pulled me totally out of the storyline. I listened to the first 5 books one after the other for the last month so it's freaking my Sh** sitting her listening to this book. Totally kicking myself.
CYNTHIA HOLLOWAY. Duh! (though I HATED her Mallory voice sooooooo much)
Nope. But I might rent it on Netflix
Did I mention how utterly bummed I am right now? Oh, and I don't think I will be purchasing the next to books on audio. Guess I'll have to old school it and read them. (GASP)
Good grief, this was the hardest audiobook to listen to. So glad it didnt't me more than $8.00. The narrator Tara Sands did not sound like a young adult.She was just the wrong person for this book. And I love this book and have read it multiple times. The inner dialog narrations were less annoying, but her choice for Jacquelines voice was way off the mark.
Again, loved the story. It really is a sweet romance with just the right amount of angst.
ALL OF IT! Her voice sounded to mature for a part of a young adult.
It could be a movie, but I can't picture anyone in particular as the roll of Jacqueline. But I would boycott the movie if Kristen Stewart was cast!
Read the book if you haven't. You won't be sorry. If they recast this audio like they did with FSoG, I would be thrilled.
What I liked least is that it's only half a story. I think it's terrible that it's continued in the next book and we have to wait a year for it to come out. I truly feel cheated and if I had know before hand, I wouldn't have bought it. I am a huge Frost fan, but this just seems shady.
I like all of her other books on audio. The performer does a great job.
I've purchased all of Frost's Cat & Bones books and their spinoffs, all read by Tavia. She does a great job. Though, I'm not a fan of Bone's and Vlads accent, though she can't help her Vlad one.
Ummm, yes. Considering it's only half a book as is.
