I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Okay, Okay I'll be the first to admit to listening to this, but in my defence Maya Banks is an auto download as I'm no prude and usually love love love her hot romance novels.
However, this one seemed to be very strong on the sexual acts done by the Prince and his 3 best friends and quite low on story which was - exiled and demanding Prince plus 3 exiled to desert island entice innocent, and all too trusting Talia, to come visit. Fun and games soon follow as she is quite happy to 'entertain' all 4 men at once for 6 months as a bargain for her Mother's hospital treatment.
Yes it was a bit of a love story as none of them could do without each other but I felt the storyline was a bit implausible and just an excuse to write some very hot scenes then rushed at the end.
Worth a credit? No, because it's only $6.36 but you're gonna love it if you're into eRotica.
Exiled is one of those titles that may have come off better in print than in audio. It is an erotica title, which is coming to mean mostly erotica with a dash of plot. If you go into the book with that attitude, you won't be disappointed.
Spoiler: The plot goes something like this. Girl catches attention of Prince, who is a hedonist. Girl has sick mom and no means. Prince sweeps in and pays for everything, including girls education and mom's healthcare telling girl to come to him when called. Girl gets called by Prince to come to remote island paradise where she is cherished and adored by Prince and his four best men. Slight hiccup in bliss, Prince fixes everything. HEA.
As I said above, if I had looked at the title as erotica only, I might not have been disappointed. I have become used to Maya Banks having really good story lines so maybe it was the input of the secondary author that made this title lacking. Also, I absolutely can't stand breathy porn star narration and this narrator gives it in spades. It's cheap, cheesy and destroys any hope of the book being anything other than trashy. Had the narrator not sounded as though she was using this as an interview for a sex line, it might have been a bit better.
If you're going to buy it, get it while it's cheap and on sale. DO NOT WASTE A CREDIT!
Did not like it at all. I really can't put my finger on why it bothered me but it did.
Overall the liked the story but the narrator mad it hard to listen to. I think it would have been more enjoyable reading the book than listening to it.
This was so cheesy it was painful. I couldn't get over how boring and cheesy this was. Don't waste your time. There is other good romances and erotica out there, and this is not it.
This book is yet another example of how a potentially good book can go bad with the wrong narrator. Venessa Caine voice sounded strained and that made this audio book hard to enjoy. I also had a hard time placing the time period in which the story took place in, was it in todays modern times or a century ago.
This book could have been much more enjoyable if the narrator spoke with more passion and the character voices did not sound so muffled and restrained.
There was also a noticeable difference in writing style here compared to other Maya Banks books. I found the story line scattered and the ending rushed.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Let's face it, four sexy men in love with one woman and they share her with each other with no problems. Yes it is not a very believable scenario, but I did enjoy the fantasy.
I loved it. I am very happy to use my credit for it but it was on sale and I was happy to just buy it. Be warned it contains explict sexual situations, so if you don't like that then this book wouldn't be for you.
The story is not the problem, the performer is. I just did not like the performance of Vanessa Caine. I found her narration to be lackluster. I was bored. I like the story and have it on my Kindle so I was excited to have it on Audible. I have long commutes and enjoy listening to my books.
Man this book will make your blood pressure rise and make you squeeze your legs tight! #hotandbothered
Really great book
I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must
I'm no prude....but I do like some sort of halfway plausible story to go with a lot of intense sex scenes. Well written sex scenes was all this story had going for it. Unbelievable story...like way off....and I hated the main male character. I wasn't a big fan of the narrator, but I can't say it was narration that ruined it. Too far fetched. I love Maya Banks' Highland Romance books, but this particular erotica wasn't for me.
Narrator was amazing! What can I say it's surely 100% fantasy but I love leaving my life and living in fantasy for a little while. I have all of Maya Banks books in paper and it appears I need them all on Audible!
