Designing Woman

What had come over her? Exactly who was she - Brandy, lady of the night, or B. J. Abbott, architect, whose dreams were filled not with erotic languor, but with visions of concrete and steel. Cast in an unfamiliar role, she had chosen to play it to the hilt, and loved the part...unaware that it would throw her into emotional chaos. The romance for every woman who's never had the nerve - a rousing passionate battle of the sexes takes place as each tries to outdo the other in a witty, erotic contest of wills!

Publisher's Summary

What had come over her? Exactly who was she - Brandy, lady of the night? Or B. J. Abbott, architect, whose dreams were filled not with erotic languor, but with visions of concrete and steel? Cast in an unfamiliar role, she had chosen to play it to the hilt, and loved the part...unaware that it would throw her into emotional chaos.

The romance for every woman who's never had the nerve - a rousing passionate battle of the sexes takes place as each tries to outdo the other in a witty, erotic contest of wills! Feel the heat when Brandy plays into Griffen's male fantasy and becomes the smoldering, uninhibited lady of the night.

Brandy Abbott decided to teach Griffen St. Clair a lesson when he assumed to know so much about her and pronounced her the queen of seducers. Outraged, she chose to play it to the hilt, and found herself loving the part. What she didn't count on was the fact he was soon to be her boss and her lover - and a man who needed to be taught a lesson about women.

Soon she was thrown into emotional chaos and forced to choose between two of the sweetest things life offered: surrender and revenge!

    "Fun, enjoyable read"
    What did you like best about Designing Woman? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the characters in this novel. They were well developed and believable. What I liked least was the author's overuse of adverbs and adjectives; I found this distracting at times.


    Would you recommend Designing Woman to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it to my friends who enjoy light romances.


    What about Sheila Book’s performance did you like?

    I thought the performance was good, although I would have liked it if she had changed her voice a bit more to differentiate between the different characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I thought this was a fun, enjoyable listen. A bit predictable, but the writing was good and the characters interesting.

    "Real Dialog that will delight!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Cleverly written dialog with a realistic story and characters


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Characters are well developed and walk into the room to meet you


    What about Sheila Book’s performance did you like?

    Narrator voice is soothing, and easy to understand with beautiful enunciation. Less excited about accents added - but voices were clear to distinguish.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is a laugh out loud book - with moments of chin dropping "I wish I thought of that when" moments


    Any additional comments?

    Tons of fun - great book for commuting as long as you don't mind the looks and stares from the laughing. Realistic story line that is character driven and does not disappoint.

    Story
    "Fun and entertaining...and steamy!"

    From the first time Griffen sees Brandy and overhears her conversation with her boss, he gets the wrong impression about her. This colors the way he thinks about her and he continues to misinterpret what he sees and hears. Instead of setting him straight, Brandy decides to play along. Things get awkward when she ends up working for him. Funny, with plenty of tension and lots of steam.

    I was provided an audio copy for review and I enjoyed it. The narrator, Sheila Book, did a nice job. The story was easy to listen to and she differentiated between the characters nicely. She did muddle through the brief conversation that called for a British accent. Overall it was a steamy, enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "Absolute rubbish"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    There was very little that could be done to improve this utter nonsense. The characters were shallow un unbelievable and just downright silly.


    What was most disappointing about Elaine Raco Chase’s story?

    The narrator. Clearly she is a lover of commas as she inserted them whenever she could, when they clearly did not belong! Some of the sentence structure was totally destroyed by her pauses in the middle of a sentence.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator would be a good start but rewriting the whole book was necessary.


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

    Disappointment and annoyance
