Interesting enough story and continuation of the Fortune Hunter series. However, much of the story is lost due to the atrocious rendering by the narrator. She speaks very fast and most of the time does not change the inflection in her voice enough to distinguish between characters so you don't know whose talking or whats going on. I found myself needing to rewind OFTEN which became frustrating and just plain annoying. But then, occasionally she will throw in a southern accent so bad you think Foghorn Leghorn has joined the cast of characters.
You may be better off trying this book in print.
The scenes with Meadow and Devlin's mom are really funny. I liked the plot and the romance was believable. I'm not usually a fan of the books that have the hero and heroine continuing to lie to each other, but in this case it was an important part of the plot. Plus it's the lesson of the old adage "What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive" . The narrator was not to my taste but she didn't spoil the book for me.
The interesting and twisting plot is overshadowed by numerous graphic sex scenes. The plot is supposed to be about love, but really revolves around lust.
Good story. I would have given it 5 all the way however Christina Traister was just wrong narrator for this book. I have listened to her more many times and know she is so much better.
The book was suspenseful, enjoyed it throughout.
Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.
This is just the sort of romance I'm interested in: light hearted with plenty of humor, strong characters, a bit of mystery and suspense, some heated moments, and a happy ending. I'd give it 5 stars but the main premise of the book is on the verge of unbelievable and, while part of the humor, begins to wear a bit thin towards the end Christina Traister did an acceptable job of narrating the story, never making me want to turn it off or wish I'd read it instead. Her performance lacks the polish of other narrators and many of the voices sounded the same. Worse they tended to slip into and out of accents so very few of them other than Meadow were consistent. A quick search of Audible shows this is the first book she did (at least at Audible). Her effort was good enough that I'd be willing to listen to some of her later work to see if she's improved. All in all 8 enjoyable hours spent listening
The story line was sweet, easy to follow and makes you smile.
Perfect for a romance that will keep you interessed till the end.
No. The story line is boring, Dodd has written better books to spend your time on.
It was flat, no sparkle.
An average listen.
This was an interesting twist to a romance. I enjoyed it. You knew the romantic leads would eventually going to get together, as with other romance novels, but you didn't know how when reading. So that made it interesting.
