I loved this trilogy when I first read it back in 2005 in mass paperback and was excited not only to see it out in audio but with a male narrator! I prefer my romantic suspense to have male narrators so I snapped all three audios up.
Sad to say, I am disappointed with Pendleton's narration. He's very monotonous in his narrative and becomes overly dramatic in some dialogue so it made for very uneven listening. I don't care for the British accent despite the pronunciation of words being American. It's a very odd mix. If the narrator is going to narrate in a Brit accent then go all the way and pronounce words in US English, except for when the character happens to be a Brit (Ferris, for example).
Storywise, I did feel the dialogue is a bit dated and hackneyed so I'm on the fence as to whether this is worth paying for in audio if you've already bought the paperback on ebook. For me, personally, I regret the purchases as I paid full price and kept falling asleep from Pendleton's narrating. I must have "rewound" five times. Thank God I've already read the book and have it as reference or I'd be absolutely lost.
