    From the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes a new tale of romance, heartbreak, and tentacled mayhem. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities.

    Overall

    As an Austen fan, I have read every variation on Jane's novels I can find. This ridiculous "book" is just awful. I found absolutely ZERO merit in it. It is an embarrassment to its author, an assault on Jane's timeless work and an insult to my intelligence. If I could, I would rate it ZERO stars out of five.

    Law professor Myles Eaton knows a lot can happen in 10 years. A decade ago, Philadelphia’s finest bachelor was a hotshot attorney engaged to a woman he swore he’d love forever - until she left him to marry a powerful politician. The only thing more difficult than forgiving her has been forgetting the searing heat they shared. And just when Myles is sure he’s over her, Zabrina Cooper arrives back in his life. Nothing could stop Zabrina from loving Myles, not even when she was blackmailed into becoming wife - in name only - to another man....

    What did you like best about Sweet Deception? What did you like least?

    I stumbled upon the Eaton series. I do like serials as they can give a reader an opportunity to learn more about characters (or, in this case, a family).


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    A little unrealistic, but still entertaining.


    What didn’t you like about Erica Love’s performance?

    Although animated and great voices for the characters, Ms. Love mispronounced quite a number of words and mixed up the genders for personal pronouns (saying "he" when "she" was appropriate and vice versa). Occasional mispronounced words can be overlooked, but I found the frequency distracting. This was the second audio book narrated by Ms. Love that I have experienced this same problem.


    Do you think Sweet Deception needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I know there are more about the Eatons. I will read them.
