I haven't listened to a book that I enjoyed as much as In Want of a Wife in a long time.
The story line is very well done with a not so typical twist to it. A bad man gone good with desires to keep his past just that, in his past; but circumstance has it's own ideas. That's Morgan's thorn in his side. Then there's Jane. A young woman with horrific tales to tell of a life that No one should have to endure.
I love how all the characters had a complete development making this story all it was.
I hope Jo Goodman continues to write more in this historical era, with as talent an ability to express as she has.
I gave the narration a 4 because it would have been nicer if the characters had a more distinct difference in their voices. Once you get to know who each person is and with the flow of the story line you are able to follow who's saying what.
Worth the credit? Absolutely!!
Love how this story flowed along effortlessly. Intrigue, mystery, excitement, love, and tears will be use if you decide to spend a credit or money on this well written and well narrated book!
All I can truly say, having lived in Montana for over 15 years of my life, this books accusations of a lifestyle common to anywhere in Montana is a LIE! I've Never heard such garbage as this! Not worth money, time, or any of one's intelligence to listen to.
This book by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick was well written that drew me in by the rarity of it. Daisy and Nikolai couldn't be larger opposites to one another, outwardly anyway.
One a killer, and the other an extremely sheltered 21 year old by a father burdened by horrid past events that freeze him inside his home. He inflicts this abnormal lifestyle on his daughter and finally at 21 she gathers the confidence and money to leave.
Nikolai was a victim of a lifestyle in the Ukraine that develops him as a paid killer. And, he's a good one, making more money than he even knows how much, and an ability to read the emotions of people in such a way that he offers mercy of a sort.
JC and JF, justify wrong (killing) acceptable and join together these two people who need one another and are the answer each need. Nikolai's love for Daisy is touching, sensual, and giving and the creation of the narrative of the sensual experiences between the two is more touching and arousing than any I have listened to before.
The narration from both narrators is excellent. Iggy is someone who I've never listened to, but his voice is outstanding in the audiobook and one who I long to hear again soon.
Definitely worth a credit or moneys to listen to.
So well written. A story you'll want to listen again and again.
I like how the author moved about in her description of the events of this story as though it were being viewed on a screen.
Well done, and well worth the $.
Very well written! A perfect combination of author and narrator. This story has substance. I look forward to book two with Cade and Dawn.
I've noticed a new trend, probably since 50 Shades of Gray came out, where the erotica is going more and more into a dark place with more intense scenarios leaning toward a more uncomfortable place than I'm willing to be taken. I find it quite uncomfortable to know of and to listen to. Also, there is becoming a 'salad tossing' of a sort of who is participating in the sexual behaviors, with no possibilities being exempt. Again, a place I'm uncomfortable in being taken. To approve of such behaviors by qualifying that each person used (and is usually at least three now) Love one another is an immature persona to be placed on such a life.
Be aware that these books, by Kit Rocha will include such scenarios of darkness and extreme sexual encounters that you may want to reconsider your choice to listen.
Sorry that I can't add anything positive in my review of these books, but the solidarity of each character is just not there making it beyond my ability to identify with them.
I will warn anyone who may want to listen to any in this series that Michelle M. Pillow writes this with the male and female FULLY misunderstanding one another. If that be because one attempts to do the thinking for the other or one is too slow to respond to another so an assumption is made, you will find it quite annoying!
The only true way I was able to get through this listen was to skip chapters. I'm sorry to say, because I hate doing that. I won't be using a credit or spending any of my money on one in this series again.
There is substance to the content of MP's book. If she would write the relationship between her lead male and female characters in such a way that we, the listeners/readers could respect and tolerate them, she would be SPOT ON in her writing strength. Setting them up in the manner in which she does make, we the consumer become uncomfortable, and angry with those characters personalities.
I enjoy that she writes this series with females being part of the Galaxy Bride's, where women are taken to various planets where the male's population are needing women to procreate their worlds. The simplistic manner in which a 'crystal' worn by the men since their birth alerts them to who their 'true mate' is. All of this along with the tradition of unity of marriage and the institution of family is well done by Michelle Pillow. I appreciate her for that.
My recommendation is:
If you Can overlook or tolerate the banter of misunderstanding that goes on between the husband and wife in these books then your money/credit will not be wasted.
If such bantering annoys you beyond reason. Don't waste your money or your credit.
Almost anything narrated by Christian Fox is an automatic download for me and if you buy this one, you'll understand why.
This book is about a love. It's an awakening for Gage and a fulfillment for Oops. Honestly, that's her nickname, being named that because she was born to her parents when they thought they were done with having babies.
Because this is an erotic romance, I don't want to say more, because we know what that adjective describes, however; this is one of the best written and narrated ones I've listened to. There is some BDSM, but it's not too difficult to listen to rating it on a scale of 1-10, I"d give it a 5. I'm not a fan on BDSM literature, but like I said, I couldn't pass up listening to a erotic book narrated by Christian Fox.
For those who choose to listen to erotica, then this one will be worth your credit or your money.
I'm sure since the story was so short that the fact that this novella was so predictable and difficult to believe can be attributed to that reason. However, J. S. Scott seems to have similar plots throughout any given series she does.
The performance was good, but I wouldn't spend a credit on this unless you've exhausted your ability to buy something else.
The beginning of Simon's story was good. I enjoyed it. Toward the middle and especially the end I was like, WHAT!!?? I mean who in their right mind hires a lawyer to write up a pre-nup stating since I'm a lowly nurse and you're a Billionaire, I bring NOTHING to this marriage and I'll take NOTHING if we should divorce??!!! And she wants to do it so show him she doesn't love him for his money. Of course she's already proven that by not spending one penny of the $100,000.00 he deposited in her checking account last year!! Please, authors. Puuuulllleeease.....Don't think we, the readers, who keep you in $$$'s are STUPID.
