I can only imagine that Sylvia Day must of cringed if she listened to the numerous amount of words that were mispronounced in this audio book!
The last straw for me was toward the end of the book when the word wanton was pronounced as wonton! This was a great story (love Jared and Darcy) and I've yet to read or listen to a book by Sylvia Day that I haven't loved but the mispronounced words and the accent of the narrator (that sounded to be possibly from New Jersey in a story that is set in the Northwestern United States) was a distraction and disappointment.
The story was good, but the narrator ruined the listen for me. She mispronounces so many words it becomes destracting. The one that finally did me in was wanton...mispronounced as in referencing a chinese dumpling. I couldn't think of anything else except being as horny as potsticker after that and shut the bok off.
Say something about yourself!
Yes, with a note to ignore the mispronounced words.
Darcy and Jared's first time on the couch.
Jill Redfield or Madison Vaughn!
The couple's initial reaction to each other, that Sylvia made Darcy open and honest about her own feelings.
Chandra should do a couple preliminary run throughs before finalizing any book she narrates. The mispronounced words were absolutely too much to believe, didn't the project manager listen to it before publishing?
Gosh I hate to bash this book because I'm such a fan of Sylvia Day novels, but, this was not one of her best works. The storyline was decent and plausible, but it was tough to listen to because the narration was horrible. The narrators voice wasn't so bad but it was her characterizations that were incredibly bad. I'm not sure how narrators determine how a character will sound or what type of personality they are trying to convey through the narration, but every one of Skyye's voices in this book literally grated on my nerves. Other than this, the book was signature Day with the hot sex scenes...tempered a bit by horrible narration...and the plot was decent. Day does a good job of creating erotic romance thrillers with a hint of humor. This one missed the mark for me and I wouldn't recommend it unfortunately.
Glad I read the story in book form first otherwise I would have missed a good story. I can't believe that no one has listened to it and not retaped it. A lesson to always read the review before purchasing.

I couldn't get far. This narrator cannot have been Sylvia Day's choice. Ugh. She's horrible at a voices and worse? The male voices are done like they are morons who drone slowly, and this narrator mispronounces some VERY important words!! Basic English.
Yes, but not by the narrator here.
Jill Redfield? Or, ANYONE but this narrator.. not knowing basic English words is a deal breaker for me.
No. The strange initial connection between the two main characters made zero sense.
Sylvia Day - listen to this narrator butcher your well chosen words... but you should drink wine first for the cringeworthy voice!! And, mispronunciations of a few of your words.
The story was fine. The narrator was horrible.
Jared because he does not seem to be aware of how cute he is.
This suspense love story held my attention. I really liked it.
I liked the suspense
She did a good job
No it wasn't but I still liked it.
Not by this narrator. She does not pronounce words with a "t" in it properly. It distracts from the story.
When the main characters first get together. *The couch scene*
The narrator's in ability to pronouce words with a "t" in it properly. Too distracting.
Nothing extreme. I like books by this author, so will continue to read (or listen) to her books.
