First pages - Ryland is a snarling, egotistical Alpha male with no regard, much less memory, of anyone less important than him. By the end of Chapter 1 he's in love and going to marry the heroine... HUH??? And the girl? She hates all men, they're all going to rape and pillage and by the end of Chapter 1 she's in love and having voluntary sex with the dude? Seriously? All the while being completely unconscious and recovering from bullet wounds because she's drinking freshly squeezed orange juice... LOL.. it was so ridiculous...
I kept waiting for a story... It never showed up - glancing passes as history, hop-skip-and-jump around between him, her, them. Alot of the "plot" points were never explained.
Absolutely not. Have you listened to her?
Basically, I'd re-write the whole book. The premise might have worked... if there was any depth, connection, or flow to the book. There isn't.
The story itself was decent; however, Kate was so wishy-washy and immature it was seriously annoying. Nothing could ever make her not love Matt - except two seconds later when he told her his big secret and boom, she's out the door. Where's the conviction? She trusts him completely - but the minute another female, one who has completely lied to her before, tells her a tale - she's all about "did he do that or not?" Where's the trust? Where's the love?
More of the same .. alot of fluff, no real substance.
I seriously don't like this narrator. I've listened to her with a couple of other books. The whiny sllimy voice is seriously annoying. I won't download another book with her as narrator.
The premise of the book, the bones, were good, which is why I purchased it to begin with. More depth to the characters, less fluff and nonsense, it would have been a good story.
I was very disappointed in this book. Over 8 hours of 3 days in the life of Mya and Logan; and most of it was just filling - something to take more time. I found the dialogue ridiculous at some points .. "I want you so badly".. really? And let's not forget - after a hot sex session, while they're still gasping for breath in recovery - "I want to be completely honest with you." really? The premise was good, the execution very dreary. I didn't care for the narrator. While the voice was ok - the reading style was annoying. Took me almost a full week to actually listen to this one - I kept having to rewind and rewind to figure out what was going on because I'd zone out so much while listening..
Delete all the head trip crap that doesn't mean anything to the story -- I mean seriously - how many times can a main character say "I don't want to get involved with a firefighter" that lasts for 20 minutes??
The pauses, inflections - they really didn't work. Sounded deadpan "i love you." "yeah, I love you." weehaw.
The premise was good - hot firefighter, repressed fire investigator.. psychotic girlfriend wannabe .. could've worked... but didn't.
No really. The premise is great - who doesn't want to be overtaken by a hot studly dom in an elevator on the way to work one day? But that's where it stops.. the main female character is whiny. Seriously whiny. And there's no depth... They're in the elevator, they're in the garage - then they're on the way to Paris.. say what? You get no sense of him at all - other than occasional glimpses.. and those aren't enough to endear him to anyone. So, no - don't think I'd recommend it..
Sure - I would like to find out what happens after they take off and "make him chase them".. but more for the closure than anything else..
This woman's performance was poor. I'm sorry - but I couldn't stand her voice - or her whiny-ness... it really grated on my nerves.
Absolutely does -- what happened when they took off? Does Jeremiah EVER come out of whatever funk he's in and TELL her how he feels? DOES he feel? and does she actually fall for the brother?
Absolutely would recommend this book. Serious hotness; the storyline is awesome. You guts clench when Gideon actually forces himself to share... it's great.
The storyline was titillating - which made me purchase it; but the female character was not endearing at ALL. I was more into Mr. Stone than the female character. She was just flat.
I really became annoyed at her voice for the female character when she was talking to others. It was a little girl, whiny voice.. ANNOYING!
No idea. It was a good concept for a storyline; the male characters, especially Stone, were interesting - although the friend, Greg, was like a throwaway, oh-by-the-way, here's this kid that also wants to get in her pants, character.. whoopee; the female characters were, well, stupid. More depth? This seemed like a "I have an afternoon to while away writing a book and I'll just dash off this little something that may or may not happen in a workplace and make the female character as horny as possible"
I loved the final installation of the Inn Boonsboro trilogy. Mrs. Roberts always comes through with full-bodied characters and is able to give you insights from both the male and female main character's point of view. As with all her books, I definately will be re-reading/listening to this trilogy again.
I liked that not only do you get to learn more about Hope and Ryder - but also get to stay in touch with the other main characters and what they're doing. And, I loved that Lizzie found her Billy... how wonderful.
I don't particularly care for his style of reading but after the first 2 chapters, I forgot about it. His gravelly Ryder was nice.
When Ryder realized that Hope wanted to face her old boss herself - to have that closure herself. When she said that when she couldn't have talked him out of confronting him, she'd have gone with him.. that was a moment.
