While I have not experienced the print version of this book, I was beyond impressed with Amy McFadden's reading. She gave the characters voices so distinct that at times, it sounded as though more than one person were reading.
I think Chubs and Vida are my favorite characters. They provide counterweights and levity to some of what goes on.
Being a fan of comic books, I was drawn to this book because it sounded very much like something I would find in one of the monthlies I read. It was that and more. Alexandra Bracken does an excellent job at defining her characters. So much to the point that when they make a leap to something that might seem otherwise illogical, it makes perfect sense based on what she had established for that character.
There is nothing about this book I don't like-slash-love. I've already consumed both this and Never Fade and I'm eagerly awaiting the follow up.
The Good. Selena Kitt is genius. I have yet to be disappointed by anything of hers I've read. I was an instant fan since that first taste of her writing, and this proves to be no exception. I'd previously read this work and wanted to experience the hands-free version. Which brings me to...
The Not as Good. Taylor Quinn has a delivery style that doesn't hit my ears favorably. She always sounds like she is one the verge of laughter. Then there are times when she speeds through the reading. Usually on the sexy parts. It was jarring at first, but after additional listenngs, I was able to accept it.
In the End. The reading delivery doesn't detract from there overall story. The stuff on the page is the part that is ultimately going to stick out in your mind I would definitely buy this at full price.
Selena Kitt, once again, does not fail to bring the sexy. Each one of these stories is hot enough to melt your ears, yet well written written enough to make you want to stand at a podium and read it to your fellows.
E.V. Grove does a good job at speaking the words into existence. While I would prefer a less clinical delivery, I can listen to the woman over and over.
All in all, this is one of a hand full of purchases I would gladly have purchased at full price.
Vocal goddess Lucy Malone was a major draw for me to this work, but Melinda DuChamp's ability to tell a story was a close second. Her ability to simultaneously speak to my inner adolescent humor and my adult libido is a trick of magic.
I can't think of anything this side of Cinemax After Dark that can compare with this book...except for something else written by Melinda DuChamp.
Chastity in the hotel room. Yes, please.
There were several moments where I was compelled to laugh out loud. I did not fight the urge to do so.
It was funny, sexy, smart and hot. The author doesn't overuse any of the devices used to tell the story. The balance of humor and heat keep the story new from the first page to the last. Lucy Malone takes time to give each character a unique voice. Thought is put into each syllable.
Overall, this was a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience I can't wait to relive.
This is a story I'd listen to over and over. The combination of Melinda DuChamp's words and Lucy Malone's voice make it an irresistible draw.
I loved the smooth infusion of humor that made me laugh aloud, while not pulling me out of the moment.
...and, as always, any excuse to hear anything read by Lucy Malone is a treat.
I would definitely listen to this again because all of the essential elements came together for me in this book. The narration was great, the stories collected were varied enough that nothing felt recycled, and it was hot as hell.
There was no one thing that I could highlight about this book that outshone something else. Everything was working the way it was supposed to work. One of the most complete offerings in the history of ever.
Lucy Malone's performance in this book is as solid as anything else she has ever done.
So hot it'll make your eyeballs sweat!
Lucy Malone was, by far, the best thing about this audiobook. There were two, maybe three plots recycled throughout the entire book. Little effort seems to have gone into fleshing anything out other than the writing of people having sex. If that's what you're looking for, then this offering has it in spades.
It would have been more enjoyable for me if more effort were put into developing plotlines. I also would not have minded if the characters in each of the stories weren't carbon copies of the people in the story before and the story after.
Lucy Malone, is Lucy Malone. Her voice is heavy, sensual and just what you would want for almost any erotic reading. Her reading this is the only reason I made this purchase.
On the one hand...no. On the other hand, the narrator's performance was on point.
I'm on my third listen and it's still an interesting listen as it was the first time. There's something appealing about a married couple rediscovering one another and finding new ground within their marriage.
The scenes with Charlie, Jack and Lloyd all together.
It'll make you want to lick the pages.
Amber Beard's voice works well with Selena Kitt's words. Her voice has a certain weight to it that lends itself well to erotic readings. I love the inflections she adds. You actually feel like you're listening to something sexy.
Yes. Please. More.
Amber Beard delivers in this reading. Her voice drips sex and at those times where emphasis is wanted, she raises her performance, adding a sigh here or a slight moan there, to emphasize the heat falling off the pages in this work.
I have listened to this one at least four times. I try to do it all in one sitting, but I end up having to stop and walk away from it.
Selena Kitt never fails to deliver the heat. It's rude, it's dirty and so well written one dip in her pool is not going to be enough.
