the plot was incredibly predictable; the narrator was monotone and sounded like he was reading right out of the book with absolutely no affectation in his voice.
Worst narrative I've ever heard.
The only people that might enjoy this book are people that enjoy stereotype plots and low-level narrators.
The plot. Totally predictible. The characters - superficial.
never. The male narrarator sounded like a 1950's radio announcer reading lines. Costanzo's lack of connection to the emotions of the characters in their situations was even more boring than the plot itself. Even the romance scenes sounded like Paul didn't even know his guy was getting aroused. His character might as well have been grocery shopping for all the interest that Costanzo put in his voice. He would do well to listen to other male narrators that know how to engage the listener and make their characters come alive.
Renee wasn't as bad.
boredom and anoyance for wasting my time and money on this book. The plot was just based on the steoreotypical female in a man's world plot that didn't go any further than the superficial level. Totally predictible.
I wish the author focused more on the interaction and the developing relationship between the H/H rather than the other two males, although they were essential to the plot-line , the story felt rushed on the second half of the book. I feel that the h/h didn't really get too much time to interact with each other before they fell in love after the third time they met and talked. I felt the author just rushed the book with the last four chapters. I would have liked to hear more about the sub-plot with the relationship developing between Catherine and Rowe and their own HEA, that felt rushed too! But all in all I would listen to this story again!
No. It's dated and the plot isn't interesting.
This is my first by the duo. Paul was competent. He's not as good as other male narrators. Renee tended to get rather nasal. I don't mind trying another book by this duo, though.
Nothing, really. It wasn't a good story and I doubt the best narrator could have changed that.
Some twists in the plot and I loved the narration. It kept me focused throughout the story...just a solid, enjoyable novel.
I like the author's storyline, however, it was ruined by the rote, meaningless interpretation of feelings by Paul Costanzo. His reading did not give depth to the characters as an audio book should.
I expected the twist to have another twist, but it delivered a good ending anyways. In the end, good triumphs over evil.
The female role was executed well. The male role left MUCH to be desired.
While the story was very good, I personally don't need nor care for explicit details between the escapades of the characters. It really adds NOTHING to the story. A warning about such material in the synopsis would be helpful.
This was such a thrilling, good book! I was entranced the entire listen. I actually HAD to finish this one but now I've got to find another good one. GREAT read - ENJOY!
I wanted to like this book. I wanted to like Catherine Coulter books, but this is the second one I have listened to and the second one that I have had to MAKE myself finish. I really like the duel narrators - so that is one of the things that attracted me to this book, but it did not help this book. The main character is an idiot. It seems like she lived under a rock and it never occured to her that people lie. The story took forever to play out and to be honest there was not enough romance or enough suspense in this book. Just plain ol boring.
