Sure. It was entertaining.
Erotic romance novellas
She tried to put too much acting into it. Different voices are one thing, but she adds horrible accents in. (I can tell she has a natural NY accent, but putting a big Bronx address on a main character was SO annoying. It didn't fit at all.) She added this weird British accent to a side character - no biggie, but just an example of what was both annoying and unnecessary.
I liked the stories, but definitely had to make an effort to get past the bad narration. I don't think the narrator learned how to speak English in the U.S., as she mispronounced so many words. As long as I could just get the feel of the story and disregard the narrator I enjoyed the stories.
This narrator could use some help on pronouncing simple words....Really makes it painful to listen!
Better narration the story was simple to the point action narrator was lack luster and robotic
Every word spoke was deter from the story
Irritation I had previously owned the book and recently discovered how listening can open up a story more than before
The stories are basically good, but the unusual pronunciation in the narrators dialect is distracting. Needs a better editor too.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
The Unwilling-No: Tedious, blood, gore, psychic, repetitive-circling the same facts & visions. 1 Star for overall and story 2 stars for performance
Arresting Desire-Yes: The main drawback was the reader/narrator-attempting an East Coast accent it was very distracting. 3.5 stars Overall & story 1 star performance
On Fire-YES, YES, YES! Absolutely loved this - wished it was longer, didn't want it to end. 5 Stars Overall & Story 3 Stars performance
I'm going to rave about Sylvia Day's On Fire some more...the instant connection between Darcy & Jerod was amazing and the 'bedroom' dynamics were hot! The story was good as well.
Probably not....she had a difficult time pronouncing common words-my favorite (sarcasm) was wanton as in woman pronounced like wonton as in Chinese soup (groan)!
Again; Arresting Desire & On Fire - yes.
The Unwilling no (for a romantic/erotic novel there was no intimacy until over 1/2 way through!)
A good way to sample new authors (although I'm already a Sylvia Day, Shayla Black fan) - I'm definitely not going to pursue anything by Shiloah Walker.These books contain adult themes and coarse language.
Love to read!
The first two stories were pretty good. The third one was so boring that I couldn't finish it. I also didn't notice the narration being bad until the third story.
