I wanted to read this one because I'd read Pleasure previously. This one was a miss for me. I normally listen to a book within a couple of days. This one took months for me to have the desire to complete. The only reason I did so was to see if the ending was significant. It was not.
The book was full of sex, sex, sex and unnecessary vocabulary. Don't get me wrong, I'm a reader, but I'd consider this book as being a collection of the “smut ”(no offence to any of the great authors out there who I enjoy) that I enjoy regularly. No need for Mr. Dickey to use all of the vocabulary that he knows in this kind of book. Furthermore, the book lacked a significant meaning.
Would I consider reading more of Dickey's works? Of course. Would I read another book that features Nia Simone Bijou? Maybe.... This one sort of left me asking questions. Nia seemed to be searching for something and is left empty in this one.
Jenkins has become one of my favorite authors. There are millions of books out there. Many don't inhabit the quality of writing that Jenkins so eloquently displays in her writing. I've purchased all of Jenkins' titles that are available on Audible, and have listened to each 2 to 3 times. Needless to say, I'm a fan. The story of Drew and Billie was captivating. I listened intently as Mr. Penny delve into Destiny again telling the story of woman who fled in an effort to escape the trouble brought on by her madame's son. She shows up at Destiny with her son the night of his father's engagement party. With Drew's fury and Billie's desperation, I wondered if she should have gone. Thus, the story unfolds.....
I have not read the print version. However, I would think that the print version is great. I loved the storyline.
The most memorable was when the Marshall came in the saloon on Smoke. Loved it.
It was sickening. His voice is fine as long as it was his natural voice. I didn't not like his attempts at speaking as a female. At times I cringed. I kept listening because I really enjoyed the overall feel and plot of the story.
Jenkins does a great job of using worlds to paint a picture of each seen and the characters. Throughout, I felt as if I was watching a movie.
It's ranked as a good read. .
I liked the storyline. Not only would I consider this a romantic novel, but it was thrilling as well. I could feel my adrenaline rise at certain parts of the story. It was exciting at best. The main character, Grace Atwood, was a strong and independent womany who found love and wasn't looking.
Yes, it was. As a matter of fact, I immediately listened a second time.
I've only read a few titles by Jenkins. So far, I'm pleased with her writing style and ability to tell a story.
When I looked at the time period of the story, I was a bit hesitant to purchase this title. Boy, am I glad I did. From the first chapter until the last, I was captivated by the story of the eastern woman who left the sufferings she received by the hands of her domineering abusive mother and treaded to an unknown territory. Jenkins did a marvelous job in the telling of this story. A story filled with humor, a bit of sadness, over comings, and love.
Yes, this is one of the Audiobooks that I would listen to again. I'm actually thinking about getting this one in print. Ms. Day did a wonderful job with the imagery and story line.
I'm a sucker for a good romance. This one was believable. Not only did Day speak on the heart but she also touched on emotional issue of past childhood experiences.
Yes. She did a wonderful job with the narration of this selection.
There were times in the book when I wanted to cry. However, I definitely laughed out loud on a few occasions.
There were so many likable characters in this book. I thought Reggie was too funny, and Jake was just what the doctor ordered for Dominique.
Yes, it kept my attention.
I love the sexiness of his voice.
Yes, it was. I actually listened as I rode from Mississippi to Texas. Finished it the same evening.
Overall the book was great. The B. Jackson did a great job developing the characters (though a bit unrealistic). I'm a sucker for a love story. However, I didn't think the ending was fully developed. Kinda left me wanting more.
