    "It must be me................"

    Recently, I've been listening to a few new audiobooks, which I've liked the story line, but, the narrator has JUST been a drag or a downfall.......for me anyway. This particular narrator, rushes through the sentences, doesn't differentiate between characters, so it's hard to decide who's 'talking', has no intonation, and is a bit smutty sounding. This really would have been an enjoyable book, if not for the narrator. Instead, I'm gritting my teeth and rolling my eyes, and all and all wishing for something/someone better..............take my advice, listen to a clip before buying.................too bad the author didn't get to choose a different person reading her book..................I'd be mad if I were her..............because I would have given, at least, another start to this book's rating.

    "It's not just you......"

    The narrator drove me nuts in this book. I liked the overall story and would have enjoyed it a whole lot more with a different narrator. She sounded like she was reading a news story. There is no difference in speech for the different characters. I was extremely disappointed with the narration. I would read another book by the same author if I know that the same narrator is not used.

    "Another Fast Reader"

    I wonder if I can get a refund. The reader read so fast and all the voices were the same. The story could have been good, but I don't know could only get through 2 chapters. Such a shame. I wish Audible would vet these readers before posting the books online. This reader was so fast.

    Story
    "Slow Down !!!"
    Would you listen to The Model Man again? Why?

    Yes. It's a good story. I enjoyed the story of lust for an older woman. Being 40 myself, there's always hope... It's nice to hear a story told with hope for love with a hot, young man.


    What other book might you compare The Model Man to and why?

    --


    What didn’t you like about Teri Glenn’s performance?

    She read extremely fast and with no change in her voice tone to differentiate between the different characters. I could not tell, most of the time, if it was a thought or someone talking. Terrible, terrible reader!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. As it was catchy, there were enough places to pause and come back to later.


    Any additional comments?

    To the reader, SLOW DOWN and ENJOY the characters!

    "Could've been a good book BUT"
    What disappointed you about The Model Man?

    The narrator ruined it for me. What's the rush, why read so fast? Can't distinguish the dialogue from the narrative. Couldn't tell which character was speaking. I gave up after 30 minutes, the narration gave me a headache. Another narrator added to the list of NEVER AGAIN!!!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Glenn?

    I have a list of


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment then anger because I wasted a credit on a bad narration.

    "Lovely surprise"

    I picked the book it not quite sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the story line, which was not over-dramatic, though the story itself is a happily-ever-after modern-day love story. I liked the lovely moments and suspense created: just the right amount, i thought. The narration could have gone better, luckily the story's turns make up for the mediocre narration.
    The characters were appealing. The main character, Kelly, is a 42-year single mom\romance author, is portrayed at first as the confident professional woman, who turns to mush by the adoring looks of the model man. The model man, Derek, develops as the story progresses, from a play boy to a loving man.

    "Bored"

    Boring. I could care less what happened to the characters.
    Also dialogue and flow, seemed to be no more that page fillers.

    Sorry, cant recommend. Find something else.

    I use audiobooks as means of an escape from reality. Nice to just relax with a book. Ienjoy a very eclectic array of genres...anywhere from chick lit romance to mystery to science ft. Just a common mother of three.

    Any other love story.

    Probably not another romance. She was decent.

    Not sure a little more depth.
