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
Wow...I thought the premises was fun....alien/human love affair, but wow, its about the most unromantic thing I've ever heard. The male lead is a controlling, abusive, psychopath with no redeeming qualities at all. The "Happy ever after" is the woman excepting that despite the fact that her oppressive,"lover" has EVERY warning sign of a major domestic abuser, she is just overreacting and should try to accept her fate as his captive and sex slave. How is this romantic? Its really kind of sick. And don't get me started on the fact that author uses words like "penis" and "vagina" when describing sex scences.......is this a medical report or erotica?
This was just bad; bad writing, bad narrating (she sounds WAY to straight laced for erotica), and bad characters....in the end I was hoping Mia would kill her lover! Or herself. I'm sure that's not what the author was trying to convey. Too bad, this could have been a good book.
High middle of the pack
Good sex scenes. Great ending.
Why do we not have the next book on Audible? Its been out since February. Now I actually have to buy it and READ it---which I really don't have time for! Audible get this one on audio please!
Warner....talk about a character you love to hate. Damn! I usually don't like the "bad boys", but the chemistry between him and Juliette is so hot for a YA book. My only complaint is that ISN'T an adult romance. I really hope the author has Juliette pick him.
Good, a little sweet and innocent, but I guess that fits the character.
If something reasonable and interesting would have happened. At times this seemed like a book for 5 year olds, so many "silly" things happening, then there would be this strange explicit sex scene. Very strange.
The fault in our stars.....which is what I thought this was.
None,...even the romance was boring.
The girl he goes on a quest for. I didn't finish the book, but if the author was trying create any type of romance or chemistry he failed.
People who can't read well.
I don't know, his voice was too low...the female voice was creepy
The middle...it just started to drag on and on.
Also, people don't really talk like this do they? Lot's of "I will call you" instead of I'll all you...most people use contractions when they speak, but not in this book!
Sci-Fi guys I guess.....maybe it got better in the 2nd half, but I quit listening in part 2. I just couldn't make myself care about this guy. The windup girl herself was a great character and if there ends up being some romance between them I might be sorry I quit. But it was just taking too long to go anywhere!
Yes...many! It was almost awesome. So much potential for a great book, but you can't wait until 3/4th of the book is gone for something to happen of interest.
If they like romance and YA...its a little older than YA, but a good story with interesting characters. Sometimes the Travis character bugged me a bit (come on guy, get a backbone). But it was cute and I can totally see a movie in it....which I think they might be doing.
God no! What more could there be to tell?
I like that its not the regular, boy meets girl at a coffee shop or business meeting (or after he's just turned her into a vampire LOL). As crazy as the story is, its believable. I found my self wondering if it was based on a true story, which I knew it wasn't, but still it seemed very possible.
If the story wasn't so convoluted! It was just a silly story with no real connection between they characters. And yes I do read YA stuff all the time. So either I'm finally outgrowing it or this was just really bad.
