What would you do if an irresistibly desirable but utterly untouchable woman whispered to you, "If you want me, you'll have to come and get me?'" That's exactly the situation that Elliott Foster, CEO of Foster MacKenzie, finds herself in when she meets the alluring Lauren Collier, Chief Legal Counsel of a Fortune 500 company. Elliott never has a shortage of attractive women willing to share her bed, and she doesn't care if they are attracted to her or just her money. By her rules, if two women are attracted to each other there's no reason why they shouldn't spend the night together - or in some cases, the afternoon. Lauren, intriguing but decidedly off-limits, doesn't fit the mold and Elliot knows she should walk away. Instead she finds herself in the unusual position of pursuing another woman, and even more disconcertingly on Lauren's terms. Come and Get Me is a passionate, rollercoaster romance that's anything but predictable.

The story was actually pretty good. I wish I had purchased a print copy. (Sigh). The good about the narrator was that she did actually have some slightly different voices for the characters which is always helpful and entertaining. HOWEVER, when reading the narrators part of the book she had a VERY annoying and repetitive cadence that soured the whole performance. Imagine how annoying it would be if a "valley girl" were ready the part to you. I can't imagine why no one stopped the production after the first chapter and addressed it or demanded a replacement of talent. I almost didn't finish it because I was so annoyed by it. Too bad too cause the story is decent. Tip: re-record and re-release.
I don't even know where to start. I don't know if the woman reading it had done a half way decent job, that is could have saved the book or if they are both to blame.
Just about anyone.
I paid for the book so I finished it. So, no I don't thing so. Honestly not sure if it was all the narrator or if the story didn't do it for me either.
Enjoyed the writing, dialogue, and plot. The narrator, however, was awful. She sounded like she was reading a prompt from behind a local news desk. Her inflection and tone nearly made me turn the book off during the first chapter. If I hadn't been on a long drive with no internet signal to download another book, I would have.
Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
It really does seem as though the author wrote a novella, then added 2 or 3 hours to it and then repackaged it into a novel. Unfortunately nothing, or at least very little of substance was added to this hypothetical novella in those hours. There were far too many instances of long drawn out sex scenes; not the entertaining type, but the basic vanilla, middle of the road, your mother's or your grandmother's romance read/listen. The central crux of the story is quite good as female power executive Elliott Foster meets young attorney on the rise Lauren Collier. Suddenly temperatures are on the rise, loins are becoming moist, and the emergency fire alarm is blaring. Indeed if this had been a novella I think it would've been a five star special; as it is I barely gave it a three.
The story is actually very good. However the narrator's pitch became a major source of irritation. A redo of the story with another narrator would definitely improve ratings on this audio bok.
"Awful, doesn't live up to its description"
The narration is possibly what kills this book by chapter two, but the story for me is really uninteresting, smug, and so not like the description given which asserts to be something it's not at all
No. I would never buy a book with this narrator
A robot would have been better. Anyone would be an improvement.
"Love this story."
Love these characters. They are very likeable. You have to keep listening to see what happens. I've listened to it at least 5 times already. I thought the narrator did a good job.
"Narrator is awful"
I've read dozens of lesbian fiction books. Like hundreds and one chapter in the voice of the narrator is so irritating I've stopped! Irritating!!! No!
