This story had it all....Romance, plot, twists, turns, the evilest of villains and more betrayals than expected. Marc a seemingly regular guy, whose heroic tendency's came from his deep love for his daughter. It was a enthralling read from beginning to the unexpected end.
From the initial "meet cute" when our heroine Jessica, a self employed book reviewer / blogger, clumsily stumbles directly into the arms of her billionaire, Asher...you get the feeling it's all been done before and that it's been done much better.
The character development is almost non existent. We have no idea why Asher is the way he is...We aren't sure why he and Jeremy are friends. Or even why Asher and Jessica fall in love?
The narration is extremely tedious. It's almost choppy and robotic. The voices are annoying.
In the end, the plan to devastate our hero and cause untold financial ruin, can be solved by Terminex???? It's absolutely and unequivocally preposterous and NOT in a good way.
This was a great listen. You won't regret the use of a credit. Loved the characters. Highly recommended
Where to begin?
Elise is a former party girl who has been spoiled by her parents until they stop there financial support. Lucien is a former companion who feels that she would benefit from some discipline.
The discipline concept being very similar to 50 shades right down to the riding crop and of course we find out that Elise is actually a virgin. (Oh Lucien....How could you have been so mistaken)
It's not that the similarities are of overwhelming in plot but in style. Still worth a listen except for one thing ...narration. It really is that bad. I understand that the main characters are from France but the accent or affect or dialect is so overdone that you literally will miss words. It's more than merely off putting.
From the beginning it seemed that the odds were stacked against Elizabeth / Abigail created as a genetic experiment and raised by a cold, distant nightmare of a mother. In a fit of teenage rebellion Elizabeth fabricates fake id's to get into a club .I was really struck by the humanity in the story how one simple rebellious act, not so different from the teenage angst we all go through had horrific consequences. This was a really good listen. Enjoy.
There is a certain predictability to romance novels, I understand it expect and even quite enjoy it as a fan of the genre. But this book is not even moderately interesting. . Even if the narrator was fabulous (and that was not the case) it wouldn't have saved this annoying story. The accent was way overblown and I never want to have to imagine a quizzing glass as the most interesting part of a story.
Ok, the baby is actually a 10 year old boy named Seth and the men are his three older brothers, Cameron, Ethan and Philip. This was a heart warming story of the importance of family and as well as an entertaining romance. I really look forward to the rest of the series.
Here's the basic formula. Start with the perfect -- or as it turns out not so perfect family -- gradually expose there flaws and add a kidnapping with a keep you guessing plot and entertain the masses. It's all about fine lines -- is anyone completely evil? Is anyone completely innocent? This one kept me guessing for a long time. I found it thoroughly entertaining.
This is a series that I could quite simply love from beginning to end. Jamie & Dante are the main characters, but you feel like you are totally being drawn into the whole pack. The language is still salty. The romantic scenes are still graphic. The dialogue is fresh and funny even when it borders on purposefully corny. I can't wait for Book 3.
So much has been written about this series I was expecting it to be great. It was good, left me with a curiosity to see where the story goes from here.
