I only got about an hour into it, but it was such a slow start...maybe it could have gotten good, but it was just taking too much time. And the plot was weird, I couldn't decide who was the woman's love interest, her very young room-mate (creepy) or the snobby, uptight editor---which could have been good, but come on get to it!
Maybe just a traditional period romance.
I'm not a big fan of male narrators for romance so maybe a woman narrator.
The roommate guy....he was unrealistic...and I hated his voice
I realize the guy thought his wife was using him in some way, but still he treated her like crap for so long and in so many horrible ways that I could never forgive him, and I couldn't forgive her for being such a doormat. Do people really carry around resentment like this and never say anything? Seems unrealistic. Nonetheless, even when the husband finds out that his wife married him for the right reasons he is still an ass and his excuses don't make it better. I can't believe people think this is romantic.
The story was cute...it just seemed like it was written by an amateur....The dialog was so cheesy and the characters didn't' seem real. I can't put my finger on it but it reminded me a lot of the stories on the fan-fiction sites or on other amateur writing sites.
no....boring book. Well written, but really I could see everything coming a mile away. The end was very unsatisfying and well, it just didn't seem to be a story worth telling.
If you've read recent Jojo Moyes (You before me-AWESOME! or One Plus One), this is NOT like that. Its very well written, but it just doesn't have the solid storyline the others have.
The way Lena gravels! Its embarrassing the woman lets this asshole treat her like a doormat. She really didn't do anything wrong and he acts like she killed his mother! I understand Mason is hurt and all but really can't his sister or friend slap him a few times so he wakes up realizes that he's the one who is a horrible person.
I can't take it much longer, if this Mason dude doesn't stop acting like an ass I am going to have to stop reading.
If you're looking for a good erotica book, this is that. It has a different spin on all of the "billionaire likes S&M and good girl wants to explore" themes out there right now. The setting is unique (Russia) and the back story is believable. My biggest complaint is why are there 3 books...they are so short they could have been 1 book easily! As soon as I finished one I went and bought the next right away...but it seemed ridiculous, each one was only like 3 hours long.
Good characters...believable and real.
Undeniable....but in that book I hated how ridiculous the heroine was...she was a doormat and despite the fact that Raine puts up with more than she should, she's not really a pushover.
Great Biker book, with realistic characters and a great story line. I keep finding myself thinking about these people and wondering what they're up to. I read/listened to 4 or 5 books a month and I don't often think much about them once I'm done so...that's saying something. I even went to see if there was a book 2 but.....beware book 2 is still being written. I hate that! By the time its out I'll have forgotten a lot of the details.
Great Narrator. Fun, easy to listen to. Jojo is one of my new favorite authors. She has very realistic characters, dealing with very relatable problems. You Before Me is still my favorite, but this is great too. The only minor issue I have with Jojo's books is that its a little too PG. But after this I'll go pick up something from the erotica section and all will be well.
Great narrator! Seemed authentic to the time (but really what do I know about 13th century Scotland)
I'm sure its very authentic to make the hero so dominant and belittling to woman. I mean that's how it was in those days, right? But, the people that read these books are woman of the 21st century and most probably don't find a controlling, demeaning man very attractive. I know I don't.....just saying.
The story never went anywhere.....about 1/2 way through nothing of consequence had happened yet...simply a repetition of the same vague scene in which she is unsure of what she see's and feels.
I just couldn't care about this shadowy figure....it left me apathetic about the heroines plight.
NO....I've heard her read other things, but this time her voice deep gravely voice really grated on me.
I got this one on sale and I figured it would fair at best (as most of the sale books are). But it was pretty good, especially the ending. Usually everything ends all wrapped up as neat as can be. I like that this seemed more realistic. Very hot sex scenes and the chemistry between the 2 main characters was excellent.
On the negative side--the narrator was little too sexy, she almost growled every line. I like her voice but she overdid it a bit.
