I listen to a great many audio books and on a scale of 1-10 this would rank about a 4 1/2 only because the narrator just didn't pull you into the story. When reading the heroes lines, it sounded very corny at times. This narrator would be great for a book that is written from a female character's point of view, but definitely not a male's- especially an alpha male.
Cole, because he is the lost one until he meets Jessa.
A male narrator! There are a lot of great ones out there and I really wished one had been used.
Yes, I had an extreme reaction- disappointment! I liked the story, just not the way it was delivered. I like Shayla Black's books but this one could have been narrated so much better.
Please use a male narrator for any other books that have strong male characters. Serena Daniels is a good narrator but I think she'd be better sticking to just female characters. I listened to this book before the 1st book in the series and now I'm not so sure I want to buy and listen to the 1st book since it is narrated by the same person.
This is a poorly written book. It sounds like this is a first book of an author who had no experience. The language used became quite boring and repetitive and a lot of unnecessary expletives.
The narrator was not very good at doing different voices or her emotions. I felt there was too much inner turmoil being voiced by the characters...some of them over and over throughout the book. I got to the point where I just wanted to scream if I heard it one more time. I love Shayla Black, however, I think this one was "phoned in"... I know you can do better...so I will be waiting for your next book!!!
