I haven't read the print version, but I speculate that I loved this story far more because of the narrator, Elizabeth Powers. She gave a maturity and dignity to the story that may not have been there otherwise.
The concept of "hot billionaire meets somewhat naive 20-something" certainly isn't new, but the author adds flourishes of originality that make this unique enough to seem fresh.
I haven't, and regret that she hasn't narrated other books. I'll be on the lookout for more from her.
Absolutely! Besides the fact that the book (and its sequels) is excellent, it was the narration that blew me away. Kate Rudd gave a superior performance, and completely captivated me. I found it very impressive that there were slight, - though notable - nuanced differences in voice quality for two of the male characters, and those voices stayed constant through all three books. I highly recommend the audio version, or, at a minimum, the kindle version to be read in tandem with the audio.
This is an absolutely delightful book, a nice light read. The narrator didn't do it for me though, and in fact I found it to be so unfulfilling that I stopped listening and began reading. She has no fluctuation in how she narrates individual characters' voices, and it became so frustrating to me that I wasn't always sure who was talking. The male voices were the same as the female voices, and all were just about the same as the voice of the narrator. Maybe it'll work for you, it just didn't for me. I bought this when it was on sale, enticed by the price, without listening to a sample. Learn from my mistake and make sure you listen to the sample, first!
