I bought this book hoping for a nice Christmas story, even if it was to be one of those too sweet romances. I think maybe it should be placed under Erotica. The 28 year old virgin is made out to be totally stupid and the descriptive "deflowering" of her just doesn't get it for a "christmas" story. It just goes on and on about how innocent she is and descriptive sex. Throughly disappointed. Waste of money even if one wants to hear about the sex.
Lack of repeating Holly's sad stories about mother's illness, 15 year old boyfriend, etc.
Added more emphasis on the main characters - Jordan was ok but Holly, even though a 28 year old virgin should have had a little more sophistication
She was really flat; male voices were not very good
Always love a happy ending
Not a Susan Mallory winner
The entire story line was a vast disappointment. Not worth what I paid for it. But it got lost in the several books I bought and it is too late to return it.
The entire story line is beneath what I have read in other books from her. Did she allow someone to write it and then use her name as author?
Absolutely NOT. She sounds like she is falling asleep in the first chapter. Then her entire tone through out the book is really either falling asleep or trying to be sensual, which she is NOT.
Anger for purchasing it.
This book is really the worst book I have ever tried to listen to. It is too late to return it or I would. I purchased it during a very busy time and it just got lost in the shuffle. Never again will I allow this to happen. The author, Susan Mallery should personally return the money I paid for the book to me with her apologies.
Horribly predictable, not particularly interesting, definitely not a heartwarming Christmas story nor a particularly good romance. Okay, the typical romance book isn't my cup of tea anyway, but on occasion I run across one I take a chance on and enjoy; this was just painful. The narrator was okay. The sex scenes really seemed out of place. I don't know why I bought it and I certainly don't know why I listened to the whole thing.
I enjoy many types of books and am always looking for new authors to read and listen too. I enjoy reading the reviews and adding my own from time to time.
Yes because it was very enjoyable to listen to and a fun, light romance. Not an overpoweringly sexy story but well done.
Mistletoe, the cat was a big part of the story and her reaction to her rescuer made life very difficult for him since she ended up living in his home. She seemed to like the rest of his family just fine but had problems with him. Made his romantic feelings for Holly more difficult since she managed to be where she was in the way a lot.
I think the scene where his family went around singing (off key) Christmas Carols. It was a funny scene.
I laughed a lot while listening to this story. It was very lighthearted and just plain fun.
A sweet story with a predictable plot. What better to read during the holiday period when our mind turns to good things. Although the plot was predictable and the reader knows what was going to happen, it was still enjoyable.
I have listened to 22 of Susan Mallery's books and have always found them very enjoyable. Will always seek out her books.
Loved the story, sweet, fluffy but narrator often speaks so slowly you lose your place in the story.
Recommend it for a great holiday read.
