Gigi Bermingham is no Marguerite Gavin.Love the story, hate the reader. Bermingham's pronuncations are horrid so are her vocal varieties. If it wasn't for the fact that I listen to this at work whilst doing multi-tasking, the book would've been a better choice. I'm looking forward to the Marguerite's return in the next book.
There are few words that can do justice to this book. I cried through a good portion of this book.
Let me preface this by saying, I never read the summary of this book. I'm on Megan Hart's Fan page on Facebook and when I saw that she released a new book I came straight here to get it. I started listening to the book at work and actually had to cover my mouth with my hand when I let out a rather loud squeak when Patrick said Alex Kennedy's name. For some unknown reason, Alex is my favorite of Megan Hart's characters. After reading 'Everything Changes' ('Tempted' from Alex's point of view. It's not in audiobook but it's A MUST READ, SERIOUSLY), all I wanted for him was a happy ending.
Clearly, it took him years to get over feelings for Ann. He wasn't willing to risk his heart again and went back to dating men guarantee it. He was succeeding until he met Olivia. They both let down their guards and fell into exactly what they both needed.
The portrayal of a mixed race relationship and how others react to it is spot on. In small towns, mixed race couples are not common and people still stare, or at least take a second look. Olivia was accustom to this and Alex never noticed until the blatantly rude initial reaction from his mother.
I loved how Megan Hart brought several characters from her books into 'Naked'; the Harrisburg area is not that large. Her use of 'six degrees of separation' always refreshing.
This book is deliciously hot and filled with characters that are flawed which makes them all the more endearing, like every Megan Hart book. I highly recommend it.
I didn't think I would love any story as much as Zsadist and Bella's story until John Matthew and Xhex. This whole story blew me away. I even liked the creative way Murhder was introduced. Blay and Saxton are a much better match than Blay and Quinn and I'm glad that the pairing wasn't forced simply because of proximity. I'll looking forward to Payne and Manny's story.
I was hanging on Jim Frangione's every word as always.
