“Miasha scores again with another steamy, scandalous dispatch.” (Publishers Weekly)
I was in a rush and didnt pay attention to the narrators name. SHE IS HORRIBLE. I cant believe people keep letting her studdering, monotone self do their books. Miasha is a great writter though. I'll have to find this in hard copy to finish it.
LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
What I liked about this book is how Miasha captures you with the true emotions of the character who sets the stage for the book. When I first saw the title I thought that the book would be trash but I was surprised. My attention was captured from the very beginning. This book also teaches you about loyalty and how being loyal to the wrong people will mess you up. The narrator did a great job and I would suggest this book to anyone looking for a urban fiction that will keep you wanting to unfold this story.
Tell us about yourself!
At first, I didn't know if I would like this book because of the way it starts out with a girl in distress and holding on for dear life. I thought, I don't want to listen to this. But, then, as I kept listening, the characters became defined, the story line became apparent and the book came to life. Personally, I enjoy reading about different lifestyles and how people interact within. What I liked about this book is that it breathed so much life into the character Leah and made it easy to care about her well being. Although you can read about many girls in her situation, this book made her special and defined her character in such a way that really made you care about what happened to her. The writing, the descriptions, the storyline, the plot, is what made the book such an interesting read. Also, the life lessons that can be told throughout the book are what really make the writing one of success!!!
Seems like a great story BUT Ms. Peeples reads like a 10 year old...she kept messing up. I'm surprised audible did not record it over. How do you sell something with so many mistakes?
My first time
She messed up a lot. Her voice was pleasant but the mistakes were unbearable.
The story was good...I would have edit all the mistakes the reader made.
Get a better person to read it.
The book was pretty good. However, the narrator is either swallowing constantly throughout the book or it was cotton mouth. It was somewhat distracting at times but I really wanted to find out how it ends. I'd hate to miss out on other really good books because of this narrator. I do know that I don't want to listen to this narrator again.
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed this book i got off into each character. It make you think who can you trust???? Good listen.
I really enjoyed this book, this was my second reading of Miasha's writings and I loved it. I couldn't stop listening. The narrator was terrible, she was fumbling with the words too much, swallowing or drinking something but overrall I loved it. Good Job Miasha
i liked the story but the voice got on my last nerve. i have read audiobooks all my life and know there is away to edit all th page turning, lapses of dead air and missing words. a better editting job is needed but I look forward to more from this author.
REACHING FOR THE STARS
It is a pretty good book and the reader is ok as far as the quality of her voice ect. however, I give 3 stars because she constantly SWALLOWS and you can hear her turning the pages! It is called quality control; they should try using it.
This was the first book I've read from Miasha and I was pleasantly surprised. The narrator made me feel like I was watching a movie with sound effects, etc. Can't wait to read the rest of her books.
