Audible Editor Reviews

Paige Cornish, a best-selling writer, is working on an exciting new project: a book about Hollywood action movies. When her research leads her to Avalon Randolph, a gorgeous, witty, and reckless actress, sparks fly between the two wildly different women. A playful narration from film and voice actress Kim McKean brings a lively energy to this lesbian romance, highlighting each character's distinct personality against the backdrop of Hollywood glamor. Intelligent, captivating, and sexy, Cut to the Chase is a compelling tale of desire between two very charming leading ladies.

Publisher's Summary

While doing research for her third book about Hollywood, Paige Cornish meets Avalon Randolph, a sexy and wild actress who takes her on a rollercoaster ride - right down the red carpet. Writing about Hollywood is one thing, but living it is quite another. Personalities clash and boundaries are crossed as they navigate their attraction for each other through the exhilarating but precarious world of money and fame.

Can Paige and Avalon reconcile their differences and find a happy middle ground in a town that never lives in the middle?

    "Urgent Message; new reader needed"

    I'm not sure if this was a well written book or not. the reader was so god awful that pretty much any work would have been overshadowed by her. Teachers in kindergarten reading to five year-olds do a better job than this narrator.her dull flat monotone and her tendency to stumble over words made a couple of chapters almost painful to get through. I gave up and moved on.

    "Decent love story"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa Girolami? Why or why not?

    I would. I enjoyed the chemistry Lisa evoked between the book's love interest.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kim McKean’s performances?

    The narration lessened my overall experience. Took a couple of weeks to finish listening.

    "Narrator is the Worst!"
    What disappointed you about Cut to the Chase?

    I was not able to get through more than 2 chapters of this book. The narrator's voice and intonation was awful. I tried on two separate occasions to listen to more of this book, and I just couldn't get any further.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't mean to be disrespectful to the narrator, but her voice just did not work for this book. She was monotone, and I also felt like she was reading a children's book at times. As stated above, I could only get through two chapters after multiple tries.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave the story 3 stars because I didn't think it was fair to the author to penalize her for the narrator's poor performance. I cannot really rate the story because I couldn't finish it!

    "my humble yet righteous opinion"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    i always like listening to books on tape. better than watching t.v. as i can do other things. this particular book i found myself really not enjoying the reader, the voices just did not suit the characters.


    How could the performance have been better?

    all around i felt like i was simply listening to someone read. i didn't feel the beauty of the characters. not a lot of differences in the characters in voices. i would like to hear the story again but read by someone like abby craven. i think then i would know if i liked the story or not.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no, maybe... i don't know. i would probably wait for it to come out on dvd


    Any additional comments?

    this is the first time i have felt compelled to review a book on audible.

    "Watch out, the narrator is the murderer!"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Absolutely no idea if this is a 'whodunnit' or not, because the narrator murdered this within the first 3 minutes and I absolutely couldn't listen any further. It's a real shame as I was very much looking forward to hearing the book after reading the synopsis. I've never read anything by this author before so I can't even comment on her back catalogue. I'm thinking of buying the book so that I can read it myself. I really hate having to give a negative review, but unfortunately my 5 year old daughter could put more emotion into reading this book than the narrator so 0 out of 5. Awful. On the plus side, this did teach me to use the little triangle icon under each audiobook advert as it lets you listen to a snippet of the book before purchasing!!

    "Narrator ruined it"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes to hear stories read slower than a first grader learning to sound out words… The story itself is good. I had read this book a year ago and thought it was worth hearing again during my commute. Unfortunately I couldn't bare to finish the audio version and ended up re-reading the book instead.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was very slow paced, which on it's own I could have overlooked but unfortunately the vocal characterisations were poor. Little change between characters, internal dialogue was difficult to discern from external conversations, and even when conversations between characters was occurring it was still hard to tell who was supposedly talking.


    Any additional comments?

    Take this version down and have it re-narrated with Abby Craden or Nicol Zanzarella.
