The narrator was not very good at doing different voices or her emotions. I felt there was too much inner turmoil being voiced by the characters...some of them over and over throughout the book. I got to the point where I just wanted to scream if I heard it one more time. I love Shayla Black, however, I think this one was "phoned in"... I know you can do better...so I will be waiting for your next book!!!
I don't really know if this book was well written or not...the narrator was so bad...she sounded like she was reading a shopping list. No accents...no change of voices for different characters...I can't believe I wasted a credit on this book. WHY DOESN'T AN AUTHOR OF A BOOK LISTEN TO THE NARRATOR FIRST!!! I know if I spent weeks...months...whatever on writing a book, I would want to hear the finished product and approve or disapprove!! Just a shame!
I don't know if it was the narrator or me but, I was very confused throughout this entire book. There were way too many characters to follow ...with names that were similar. With several of the characters, their story never went anywhere. After awhile, it was just somebody talking in my head with no meaning at all. It was like the grown ups talking in the Peanuts cartoons..lol. I would love to listen to another of these books...dumbed down a little. You know what the saying is....Keep it simple stupid! lol.
I felt like I had already read this book, but the others had a little more steam...Maya, I hope you're not running out of steam here. I think what really ruined it for me was the narration of the woman's voice. She sounded like a "female impersonator". Many authors are now getting into the dual narration..with women reading women's parts and men reading men's parts. Please please please consider this...I feel it makes a huge difference in the story!!!
This book was just Okay for me...just okay!!
This is another good story by HH. Love the Wherlockes and all their "gifts". Can't wait for another one please!!
I like a little more steam in my Romance stories. As far as I could see all they did was kiss...that being said, it was a decent story line with likable characters. Narrator was good and I just felt it was a little ho-hum..sorry!!
The story started out okay...then it started to drag with too much dribble. The narrator wasn't one of my favorites... it was annoying how he waited so long in between chapters. Then the ending was almost cheesey ... It was sort of Gone With the Windish"... not that that isn't a wonderful book, but for today's standards..things have changed. Would I recommend this book...no, I don't think so. Only if you are desperate for a Scottish romance book... sorry!!
This story is just a pleasant story of love, passion and kindness. It was a story with no nail-biting sessions, however, a few tense moments. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys love and romance.
I love this series. They are just a light pleasant listen with steamy parts and funny parts. I feel like I know this family now...Please Please Please....write them faster...I swear I could listen to one a week. Is Book 20 ready yet??? hahaha
I enjoyed each and every one of these books. They were well written with good character development and likable characters. Plenty of love, steam, humor and surprise. The narrator was wonderful as she always is. I highly recommend this series. I wish and hope that perhaps there are more coming!!
I totally enjoyed this series of four stories. I felt like I knew each one of the characters as they reappear in each book. The storylines were good and kept my interest. Just enough romance and steam!! Hope there is another in the series someday...I will be looking for that.
