    Story
    "Why must our Protagonists of color be so stupid?"
    Would you try another book from Brenda Jackson and/or Shari Peele?

    Shari Peele captured the personality and character of the protagonist quite well. However, the story line is sadly lacking.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brenda Jackson again?

    I have read Brenda Jackson's books before, so I would be willing to give her another change. However, I hope that her characters could be more developed and realistic.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Better personalities of the female protagonist would make the story better. The story would also have been improved by giving more detail to how the case was solved.


    Any additional comments?

    it pains me to see that an educated, successful woman of color is portrayed as extremely stubborn, difficult, and stupid in some cases.

    Story
    "Light, Easy, Fun Read"

    This book is a fairly predictable romance novel. But, this certainly doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a chance. The premise is somewhat reminiscent of "How Stella Got Her Groove Back." But Brenda Jackson definitely puts her own spin on the story. I love that the heroine of this book, Darcy Owens, is smart and successful. So when she finally finds the right guy, you feel like she finally has it all. Darcy is a bit of a smart mouth. But she has definitely found her match in York Ellis, who somehow manages to be both a possessive alpha male and a sensitive guy.

    Jackson has chosen a plot that we all know and love: two people with a long-held sexual attraction are thrown together in a difficult/awkward situation, and find that they can no longer fight said attraction.

    Shari Peele did a great job as narrator.

    "Oh My God, This Was Sooooo Good!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Bachelor Undone the most enjoyable?

    The reader's voice. She was passionate in the way she read the book and she made each character unique. I also liked the way she spoke the ethnic phrases.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them, they were each unique and added to the book.


    Which character – as performed by Shari Peele – was your favorite?

    Darci Owens!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Darci and York made love for the first time and every time after that.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so hot I found myself testifing with my hand in the air every time they made love. I love the way Shari described the sex scenes it was very erotic. Well done. I can't wait to listen to more books read by her.
