    Would you try another book from Selena Kitt and/or Holly Hackett?

    I hate to admit that I wasted my money and time on what has to be poorly written porn. Selena Kitt wrote this book at a third grade English level and Holly Hackett read it at an old fashion zombie pace rendering the dull prose down to sleeping pill strength. The characters hardly reach one dimension let alone two, and it's impossible to find them worth investing our sympathy or time in.
    You're better off saving your money and time by checking out any modern murder mystery where you'll find better written sex scenes on top of well written suspenseful plots.
    This is the first book that I've listened to written by Selena Kitt and read by Holly Hackett so I'll check out a few more of their works before giving up on them. I just won't spend any money while doing so.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    J. D. Robb's Thankless in Death: Book 37.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Holly Hackett read this book with all the finesse of a second grader giving their first oral report. There were too many unnecessary pauses to count. As for her investing any effort in creating vocal personalities for the different characters, she didn't seem to feel it worth her time.
    I've enjoyed many readers and am sorry to say that Ms. Hackett isn't, at this time, one of them. Perhaps when I check out her work on another book, written by a different author, she will prove to be better than this material gave her the opportunity to be. I'm hoping so as it's hard to write such a negative review as this.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Modern Wicked Fairy Tales Complete Collection: An Erotic Romance Anthology?

    It needs too much work to even think about cutting scenes. I would have called this a first rough draft and after doing a simple spelling and grammar check, I'd send it back to Ms. Kitt to rewrite.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll go to the library to see if they carry any of Ms. Kitt's work and see if this book was just a fluke before leaving her on my list of authors to avoid.
