Didn't really like this book. An intelligent independent 27 year old doctor decides to give up her virginity in order to convince a man to pose for a photo shoot. That doctor was previously engaged yet was as pure and inexperienced as Bella in Twilight! It was just unreal. The love scenes felt like a repeat of the same thing. Even the Happily Ever After was so perfect it didn't feel real either.
The narration was just ok. Ms. Vaughn sounded too old for the main character and her male voices need work. I gave her 2 stars because I was able to finish the story at 1.25 the speed of narration.
I really like this narrator. Her Scottish accent is perfect (I'm pretty sure she must be from Scotland). She does very distinct voices for all the characters and enhances the story with emotion and intensity.
The story is good. There is a bit more violence that I would like but the romance is hot... And sweet and it has a few twists and turns I wasn't expecting. The ending was very nice too.
I LOVED this story! The romance is very well developed and the sexual tension was hot! The story and the narration were both passionate, intense and very interesting. I can't believe that the rest of the series is not available. Please add more books by this author!!!
Serves me right for buying a book with the word billionaire in the title. Bad writing and bad narration made this a totally painful experience. I feel like I wasted time and money on pure crap.
It felt like three different people wrote this story and didn't really ask the other to keep up with the storyline. The first third of this story is this billionaire Canadian who is basically an illegal alien and needs to get a wife for Inmigration purpose. So far so good and it was like any other Harlequin type novel.
Then the second third he starts taking his new fake wife to a restaurant that they used to go when he was a child (wait, wasn't he from Canada?)
The last third is when the book gets REAL ridiculous. It felt like the author just finished reading Fifty Shades Freed and decided to incorporate Christian Grey's BDSM play into the story. There were very similar parts integrated. Even when the previous submissive came back into the picture. But in this story it didn't make sense and felt very disconnected.
This story is all over the place and there is no real conflict because they never break up or have a huge fight or anything. The love connection wasn't there either. All in all one of the worst audible titles I've ever bought.
Holy breathy narration! What's up with that. Breath! There was too much whispering and breathy narration to make this book enjoyable. I know the storyline was pathetic but the narration did not make it better at all. Skip this one.
Think about every cliche you've ever read about in romance novels and this one has it. It's so predictable and boring that I can't believe I manage to finish it. Young woman who's a virgin comes to work for handsome billionaire. They fall in lust at first sight. They have sex once without protection and obviously she gets pregnant. Add a medling billionaire father in law that has made his life's mission to make his sons marry and give him grand babies and you have a predictable fluff... With a happily ever after. An average unremarkable narration does not really redeem this story. Skip this one...
What a pleasant surprise! This book had no reviews but I found the blurb to be interesting so I gave it try. Well it far exceeded my expectations. Even though the story is only three and a half hours long it feels complete. It's a very emotional journey. Chris was hurt in combat and left blind. When he was hurt he broke up with Beth over a two sentence email because he didn't want to let her know about his injuries and have him be a burden to her. But a blizzard forces Chris to ask Beth for help when he is stranded at the airport.
Listening to the story brought tears to my eyes several times. It was very emotional to see how hurt and betrayed Beth was and how difficult it was for her to trust in Chris again. On the other hand Chris was also battling PTSD and his own strong feelings towards Beth. It was such a beautiful story. I was so rooting for them and for a satisfying Happily ever After and the story did not disappoint. The narrator also did an excellent job portraying the emotions of the characters and added extra intensity to the story.
I highly recommend this little gem!!
I liked this story a lot. The characters felt very real and their struggles were belieable. Our heroine lost her husband after a very long illness. Our hero was hurt in war and was left disabled. Their journey to starting over their lives made them fall in love with each other. The excellent narration of Rosalyn Landor adds extra emotion to the story.
As an added bonus after the main story ends you get a free novella called The Suitor. It's only an hour and a half long so it's very brief but it was good as well and felt pretty complete.
I really enjoy historical romances and I was looking for a short story (novella). This was exactly was I was looking for, a short and sizzling hot story that mostly centers in the romance of our hero and heroine. It's fast paced due to how short it is but it's intense and complete. I also liked the fact that these were normal people. No dukes, count, king, nothing.., Just two people falling in love and struggling with poverty, temptation and the different life struggles. It also has a mild Christmas theme that I enjoyed.
A good story can only get even better with good narration. Rosalyn Landor is my favorite historical romance narrator and she did an excellent job with this story as always. Her male voices and accents are impeccable. She adds so much emotion to her characters that you can really live the story. Highly recommended for historical romance fans who are in the mood for a quickie... Listen.
This book actually has a very good and powerful message, that you need to forgive in order to heal your heart and be truly happy. That's the process that our heroine went through. It was not easy for her to let go of all the pain and heartache her family put her through but at the end she let go of the past and was able to find the love and acceptance she always needed. That said the story feels long at times and I was able to finish it by increasing the narration speed. It's and ok story but it should have been shorter.
The love story is nice and mild. The Christmas theme goes on throughout the whole story. The narration is adequate and the southern accent was done correctly.
I loved this story. It's short and fast paced but it's written in a way that makes the romance belieaveble. I did an Internet search for books to read after Virgin River and this was a suggestion. And yes I see the similarities with the heroine being a nurse practitioner needing a break after a breakup/loss but this one is much more fun and less drama. The narration is very good too but I gave it 4 stars because the narrator made several awkward pauses that editing should have fixed. But it's no big deal.
This audiobook was well worth my time and money so yes I highly recommend it.
I finished this book because the narrator is very good. The story is lacking in so many ways. First, for me No means no. So our hero did not take that No kindly from the heroine and basically told her not to resist because it was gonna happen anyway. That for me is rape. I don't even understand how the heroine fell in love with the hero. He always treated her like a hostage and property. And him eyeing her when she was 10 years old? Nah.. After all that the hero put our Storm through there was not enough groveling to justify her forgiveness. So, with so many historical romance books out there I'd say skip this one.
