She's really great at creating a believable character!
To me, the story wasn't as strong as the first in the series. However, it's still a good, easy listen and I'm looking forward to the next book.
Toss it and start over.
If you're going to write something elicit, then at least make it good. I'm so disappointed in the general public for giving this piece of garbage such undeserved credit.
Anyone. It took a while to ignore her bad acting but then again, she didn't have much to work with. Horrible writing.
Apathy for the general public's opinion. After all the hype, I thought this would be an interesting listen and maybe a little innovative. Boy, was I wrong. I'm not easily turned off by elicit writing but this was just immature and dumb. It wasn't provocative, in the least, to me. The writing was terribly predictable and the characters were not multidimensional, although the writer was trying hard to make them so. Maybe if the characters were a little older and the heroine a little less naive and "innocent" this would have made for a better story. I felt like I was reading S&M for teens. Disgusting.
The emails back and forth, which were constant in the book, were the most annoying thing I've ever made myself sit through. There was a point where I actually felt bad for the narrator.

Depends on your taste. Personally, I enjoyed Rebecca Gibel's narration immensely!
I like that Claire is not obnoxious or overly awkward, as some leads in these types of chick lit seem to be. She's just an everyday person who is passionate about something as everyday as coffee. To me, that makes her interesting. I'm hoping to find out more about Matt, Quinn and Madame in the following books.
I practically did!
I really loved the fact that this novel wasn't all about steamy sex scenes. I'M SO OVER THAT!!! Just give me a good story! Thankfully, Cleo Coyle has done just that! I'm purchasing the entire series.
My advice...skip the Katie MacAlister story and move on to the other two. That is, unless you're into vampire erotica, which I am NOT. I love Molly Harper's wit and will check out some of Jessica Sims now but oh my, the first book is not my taste at all!
Just skip this and purchase a full-length Molly Harper book. The Nice Girls series is wonderful.
The entire first book...Shades of Gray...I mean, really?!
