Love audio books. Hate bad narrators.
The story was very good. I liked the characters and the story line. However, the narrator was horrible. It took everything I had to continue to listen. The only reason I continued to listen was because I liked the story-line & characters. I can't understand why someone would invest so much into a book simply to ruin the entire thing by using a horrible narrator.
Horrid voice and the voice she used for the hero was unbelievably rediculous.
find another book but with a different narrator.
If you can stand the narrator, the book is definitely good. However the narrator takes so much of a good story and makes it almost bad.
Yes, it was enjoyable. I loved a strong herione who does what she needs to. It was lite on the sex scenes which was ok with me!
The fact that a lady -virgin- would pose as a prostitute is outrageous! ok so the fact that she even KNEW a whore ...
She did a fine job!
Half of the book is angst. I've heard it already, again, again, again. Seems like the author didn't have enough story & so repeated the insecurities over & over. I had to fast forward a lot . It does get better toward the end. The only reason I could listen to the whole thing is because I was doing a boring task at the same time.
Basically I could not stand the narrator (personal opinion of course). The male voices were not brilliant and the female voices were very girly and all very similar. I think the book might have been interesting otherwise but I could not keep listening to the narrator. I did not get passed chapter one, unfortunately.
Yes. I have purchased other Laura Landon books and thoroughly enjoyed them.
As mentioed above I found very little difference in each of the female voices and they were very girly which was annoying. The male voices were not that brilliant either. When Coomes was just narrating the story line and thoughts and not doing the actual speech of people her voice was fine. However the speech of people prevented me from enjoying the actual story.
Just couldnt get into the book at all
I don't like to make negative comments but I was very disappointed in he narrator of this book
An interesting premise ruined by poor story-telling. The author basically said the same thing over and over.
She was just okay. Sometimes I couldn't tell who was speaking. Her males voices were weak.
Quite a few. The author went on and on about how the hero was deceived. There was no tension in the story. Even the danger was boring and poorly developed.
I would say pass on this book. It's a total waste of time.
I have no complaints about this book. The characters were likable and the story line had a good pace. The narration was good as well. It might have been a little predictable, but it didn't take away from my enjoyment.
The depth of desperation and the struggle to get out of it became a addiction, a way to lose sleep and irritate the people around you when you can't turn it off. ...
Ug, my least favorite question! Every book should be a entity of its own! But if I had to compare I would say another Laura Landon... I love it when the man in the story has to play second to the heroin yet be such a strong part of the tale. Once more proving the point that this story is unique too.
I really like her narratives! I would say if I HAD to find fault it would be that I usually hear a single female voice that sounds distinctly male. And I don't know why. .. I know that she doesn't need to. .. it's a quirk perhaps. ...
I'm sorry I won't offer up a spoiler. .. I would have to say it is a musical moment....
I encourage you to buy it... but save your credits... it's not worth it when you can buy it so inexpensively. ...
This was my first Laura Landon book. I enjoyed the story thoroughly though there were parts that were a bit tedious, repeating the characters' insecurities. But overall, it was an enjoyable book for an easy listen. The narrator did not have many different voices, but I thought she did a fine job. Her accent and tone were soothing, especially with the heroine's character. I appreciated the book not being all about the sex but dealt with developing the relationship. I would listen to her again as well as read another Landon book.
Sarah Coomes is going on my awesome narrators list. Every character is distinct, both male and female characters. I'd definately listen to one of hers.
A duke with a broken heart who buried two wives, ends up with a "on the shelf" neglected daughter of an earl. Good conflict but nothing to over the top. And a good HEA.
