It was hard to follow the story and characters. The narrator's voice was somewhat monotone, without much inflection.
I don't know....I really can't imagine anyone capable of tolerating the amount of repetitive dialog.
Nothing by this author. This is my second attempt at a Kristen Ashley book, the first one was Mystery Man and I didn't like it any better. And perhaps I'm being hasty with my review considering that I haven't read/listened to any of her other work.
I never finished the book, didn't even make it halfway before I said "enough!"
Yes I would, it is a good story and the characters are everyday people you might know.
Too many narrators.
I really wanted to but it became a challenge, I had to give my poor ears a rest. It took a while to get used to the different narrators, but that is not the issue really; the issue is that the narrators (this audiobook has 3) didn't stick to one character throughout the book...Ethan's character was performed by 2 sometimes 3 different voices, same with Beau, Mr. Walker, Zane and the whole bunch (and there were a bunch of Walkers). Identifying a character by the narrator's intonation is critical, if they change randomly the listener loses track of dialogue’s sequence. Some people might be able to overlook this, but I found it confusing and distracting from a GREAT story.
Perhaps if several narrators are needed for a story, maybe each should identify a character and remain that character for the rest of the experience.
Yes, I would consider purchasing other Kristen Ashley audiobooks, as long as Kate Russell is not the narrator.
"...Jimmy Choo shoes" no one has ever made these simple words sound so annoying.
I attempted to listen to it several times, but just could not make it past the narrators' syrupy-laden voice which I thought didn't go in-hand with the storyline.
Of course Logan... he is funny, uninhibited and above all unrestricted. He went for what he wanted relentlessly, poor Tate had no chance....gay or straight.
Overall his narration was OK; however, his crescendo leading to sex scenes is like those you hear from a sports announcer right before a goal is scored. His over excitement while narrating took away from the scene.
I was pleasantly surprised. As a straight female listening to a gay story, I was not sure what to expect. It speaks to the quality of the storyline and genuineness of the characters.
Yes I would because it's a very good story; I would however, have to caution them on the male voice, all I visualized when listening to the male characters was skinny, toothless men.
The struggles of a single mom trying to make it for her son and those around her who unselfishly helped. And of course Sophie and Ruger’s journey into happily ever after.
I did not like the male voice. I much rather have a female doing a good male impersonation than the male voice chosen for this production. Stella Bloom (Reaper's Property - Book 1) did a much better job. I'm hesitant to buy the next installment, Devil's Game - Book 3, because of the male voice. In book 1, Horse the main male character sounded sexy, strong, and determined just as the author described him, when I heard him in Reaper's Legacy it ruined it for me.
Maybe it's just a writing style, but she's very repetitive and it becomes somewhat irritating when listening to the book. I notice the same issue with another of her books, Checkmate ("...a cup of delicious hot chocolate"...sigh). Also, she has this way of having characters engage into little bickering fights that end up being an annoyance more than anything else, like listening to your kids squabble with each other.
Cain was my favorite.
It ranks pretty high...by far the best story narrated.
Hands down no-nonsense-tell-it-like-it-is Joselyn (Joss) Buttler.
Paula Costello's did an amazing job of capturing all the characters nuances and help me identify with each one.
Made me cry somewhat..."untrustworthy cold bitch"
I have listened to this book more times that I can count...the sex scenes are hot but the story of these two individuals is heartwarming.
