I can see why this story won a romance contest - I've never read or heard a story combining pro football, journalism, fashion modeling, Irish-American families and more - in one story. And seamlessly too :-).
Great humor and great sex too! (My vibrator almost burnt out from overuse ;-)) All the characters were fleshed out nicely - great interplay between Ryan and his friend, Jake; Samantha and supermodel friend, Hannah. This could easily have been made into a longer story but it still worked out nicely just as it is.
The narrator must be taking continuous audiobook lessons or is just getting better as she does more audio stories.
Loved it from start to finish! :-)
I wonder what would happen if the author quit her job as a 'mild mannered accountant by day' and became a full-time writer? Her stories have wonderful, sexy characters, great spot-on humor and hot sex too :-)
The throaty, sexy voice of Ms. Padovan is even better here than in 'Playing for Keeps' - very relaxed and sounds like she was having fun; the dialogue and narrator parts flow beautifully.
Keep 'em coming, Ms. Matis!
Semper fi thrice :-)
That's hard - all three were so likable. I really liked Jazz - she was one of the guys for so long as a Marine and wanted to explore being a woman so badly. Her transformation was very fun to listen to :-).
Her alto tones are so pleasant to listen to. I enjoy how she voices male characters and makes them so real.
I felt bad for Logan, thinking he may not be able to overcome his injuries to be with a woman. But definitely, I was grinning with the end results :-).
Love Ms. Long's ability to give her characters such depth in only a short story format!
What a great concept! Get a bunch of great authors together of different romance/erotica genres, take the same beginning and write a different story in that author's genre on the same main character!
Not sure if this publisher will always offer this lower pricing structure on these stories on Audible, but if so, you definitely get more 'bang' for your buck buying and listening to the 'Entwined' stories ;-)
Can't wait for Volume 2 to 'come' out !
As her Amazon reviews say, Ms. Long is a master of the short story. There is a beginning, middle and end to all the characters. I could feel the pain and longing of Luke and Rebecca from the very first description.
And, of course, wonderfully written and beautifully described sex scenes :-) - the narrator has improved considerably from a year ago in the Romance genre.
Hope to see the rest of Ms. Long's 'Always a Marine' series make it into audio form :-)
Yes, FINALLY - the great M.R. Mathias is in audio form! I can understand why he wanted the talent of Chris Dorman, an animation voice artist to narrate this story - Mr. Dorman can certainly do great character voices.
However, the narrator parts were alittle stiff - but being this is Mr. Dorman's first audiobook, he will hopefully get better as he goes along :-)
But even so, the strength of the story and its many wonderful characters made this still a great entertaining experience for me, just like reading the book did.
It was hard to 'put it down' - it's that good! Don't know where this narrator has been, but glad he is now narrating audiobooks. What a voice!
Hot, Hotter, Triple X
I liked the interplay between all the characters, and how the author kept you guessing until the very end. The author must know a lot about geology because it was as if a real trained geologist was taking you through the investigation. I learned a lot and was entertained at the same time :-)
Good distinction between all the character voices; nice conversational style as Cassie. A very pleasant voice to listen to.
Felt some sadness in a couple of scenes. Suffice to say, this author knows how to write a great story!
I'll definitely look out for more from Ms. Dwiggins :-)
Can think of four - 'Hot Sex in Texas'
Didn't have a favorite. Character voices are O.K. but the narrator is actually really great at voicing the sex scenes :-)
The virgin has left the building!
Fun fantasy adventure
Drake trying to 'sheath' his sword ;-) and the fight scene with the cave tree and bats.
That's hard - I guess the Irish sisters for this one.
Yes, Ms. Bellet writes each story in the series as a novella, so I like to listen to each one in one sitting - or long commute :-)
The battle scenes weren't as challenging as the first 2 books, but still very entertaining - this one actually had more character development between Drake and Killer.
