So, this was a good story. Both Brent and Missy were likable and there was plenty of sexual tension without too much sex, mostly fade-to-black. Which was good for me. I don't care as much for the sex as I do all the thoughts and feelings leading up to it. I just hate gratuitous sex, sex for the sake of sex. Anyway, I'd definitely read more from this author.
That being said, I think something went wrong in the reading and the writing of this book. There was pages and pages where the words being read were not syncing with the book or sentences and paragraphs were added to the book after the narration was done.
It was just crazy. But, if you waited the words and pages would catch up with each other.
AND there was a time when they were talking about another woman and the book said her name was Amanda but the narrator called her Catherine. I'm sure it was not the narrators fault. I don't think rewriting a book is a good idea when it's already been narrated. To me it wasn't so bad but to others' it'll be earth-shattering. LOL..
As to the narrator: She did a fine job. No emotion to speak of but the men all sounded like men and that's important. Nothing worse that a man and woman making love and having it sound like two women.
