Jennifer Probst is well known for her stories of a girl needing money, finding a rich sexy guy and falling in love with him, not his money. I give her credit for her ability to show the true feelings of love. But where this books fails is that it's a republish with tiny updates of a story she wrote years ago only she forgot to update a few parts of the book so it mixes parts of the story up - from million dollar deal to a billion dollar deal. If she was going to do an update she should have had better editing to make sure she didn't miss anything.
Still it was an enjoyable story, minus the narration.
Oh wow I hate to be mean but this book was pretty much ruined by the narration. I'm just floored it got approved. The problem is two fold. First she sounds far older than the main female character should be, the narrator sounds like she may be in her late 50s or 60s but even worse is the way she over-pronoucnes words and puts extra emphasis on every T. Do you realize how many times a word has a T sounding in it, in any given book?
It's bad. Really really bad and time and again you find yourself cringing listening to the narrator speak.
The story was good, not the best ever considering it was written like 10 or 15 years ago and only parts of it were updated but yeah, I would say it was a story I was interested in finding out how it ended.
This is a comment not only for this author but all of them ... listen to your book. Really listen and if the narrator is horrible, have some backbone already and be honest. Get a new one. This book was completely ruined by bad narration.
No. Really couldn't listen to the narrator again
I really liked Logan.
She enunciated way too much
Jennifer yes. Anne no
The over-pronunciation and over-acting of every word ruined a story that could have been entertaining.
Listen to the previews of a narrator I have not yet heard
Will do anything for books!
The narrator in this book made it a difficult read, I can see that she would be better suited reading a historical novel or something like that. This story was pretty good, our normal sexy billionaire and hot woman! Story line was standard and pretty good, but not the best. I LOVE LOVE Jennifer Probst and I know this is her baby, her first book. I'm glad she went through it and updated it, but the writing is still her first book. It isn't bad at all, it was good, but not as good as her newer stuff. The major issue here is the narrator.
Yes, I enjoyed it, yes, I am glad I listed, no I probably won't listen to this one again.
A lighthearted sexy contemporary romance about rich, handsome, ruthless CEO Logan being talked into hiring Chandler a beautiful Yoga Instructor for the good of his employees well-being which in turn will help his business… and eventually him.
Yes it's predictable and pretty unrealistic but hey it's the journey to the HEA that we all love so much and they had a few pitfalls along the way but there was a nice build-up to some sexy times and a tender romance after trust and faith in each other was finally won.
Worth a credit? Mmmmm a difficult one and depends what you want from a listen - it's an easy-going, enjoyable, light listen so, if you're in the mood for one of those, then YES this ticks the boxes but it's also a bit forgettable and all too perfect so I would probably put it in your Wish List and wait for a sale.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I really like jennifer probst but this just didn't check all my boxes. Some but not all. It was a great romance about a powerful CEO and his new business partner. Just what the blurp
Narration was good too but it was boring a bit. I skipped 3/4ths of the book to get to end.
Maybe a sale book.
It was meant to be an easy read/listen, like a summer beach read. It is a remake of the author's first book -- and sounds like an unpolished author's work.
I have ready other of Jennifer's books, which is why I gave this one a try.
anyone, including the woman who ready 50 Shades of Gray -- who got really bashed.
I haven't written many reviews, but the really bad narration made me write this one. Other reviewers have also commented on the very annoying pattern of pronouncing "t" in every word as if it were a double -- ie waiter became wait - ter.
Don't waste a credit, read the book on Kindle instead.
The book was interesting and worth the money in itself, but the narrator pretty much destroyed the book.
Logan because he was a good guy who cared about her from the first. I tend to prefer heroes that pursue the heroine instead of vice versa. The heroine who gets involved with a man who can't decide that he loves the heroine is boring and unromantic.
I theorized that the problem with this narrator is that someone had criticized her about poor enunciation in the past so she rebelliously decided to exaggerate her enunciation of consonants to the point of ridiculousness. I FounD ThaT her eNuncIAtion was DisTracTing anD DETtracTing To The PoinT ThaT iT PreTTy MuCH DesTRoyeD The PleaSure of ListeninG To The BooK. I have known that a poor narrator has caused Audible to re-record the book and distribute the new recording to the customers that already own the book. I think that this should be the case here. I imagine this has to be done through the publisher but I think that Audible should pursue this with the publisher. Otherwise I think that they should return the credit or money to the customers.
I had to stop listening after 53 minutes. The story was not lacking, I really could not get over the narrator's robotic, monotone voice.
I have read and listened to JP many times, and this is the first bad review I have ever made about her.
WHO TALKS LIKE THAT??? I thought the book was being read by a computer at one point.
Ms. Probst should sue the narrator for killing her book!
Since I only listened to 53 minutes?........... I would have cut the last 52 of them!
Sorry Ms. Probst. If I were you I would ask to read your own stories from now on, or at least have a say in who performs them!
