    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, Romantic, Dark


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES, sadly I did not have that big of a block of time.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great continuation of the Fifty Shades of Grey. I just loved it. Wanted to just sit and listen to this book any time I had a few extra minutes.

    "Awesome book!"

    If you enjoyed the first book you will love this one also. It is a continuation of the Christian/Anastasia adventure. I loved it. Before I bought the book I read the reviews about the narrator but I bought it anyway and I am glad I did. I had no problem enjoying Becca Battoe's performance.

    I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.

    "Amazing Series"
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    Only Gets Better


    What did you like best about this story?

    The continued development of the characters and continuing to produce a book that you just can't stop reading/listening to


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She did the first book, Fifty Shades of Grey - but it's the same series, so it's hard to compare.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved reading the book, so I love hearing the book - you can critique Becca all you want, she did a better job than I could ever do. This series is a page turning, can't put it down for one second because you MIGHT miss something kind of series....it sucks you in and spits you out a happy sappy lovey dovey mess. Don't listen to the reviews that say it's porn - porn is not about love and to it's core this book is the BEST love story I have ever read.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "And the story continues . . ."

    This story just continues to be exciting and not just in the bedroom. It picks up right where the first one leaves off. Still a little too much sex for my taste but a great story line.
