    "10 HRS OF LISTENING PLEASURE"

    If you are like me and you just love a good Historical/Romances then this one doesn't disappoint.

    This book is made up of great characters who have you sympathising over their dilemmas, a good plot that's not your usual 'Rake sees Virgin over ballroom' type, lovely building romance and throw in a couple of baddies, a twist or two and you've got yourself a good listen.

    Worth a credit? It is definite YES - but at $9.79 I would just buy it and save your credits for a more expensive book.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "3.5 Stars Easy listen"

    The best selling romance novels will leave you warm and fuzzy. Take us into a world of love and passion, where the characters play out our dreams and fantasies for our delight and satisfaction, which in turn provides us with a longing for more. Intimate Deception had the right recipe for a successful novel, the heroine and hook the author defined was fresh and new. Where Laura Landon left me wanting was the lack of depths and or intimacy she could have brought to her characters. She did not evolve all the potential in Lady Grace and build on the sexual tension or romantic suspense that could have absolutely been there between Lady Grace and Vincent.

    "Deceive, Deceived, REPETITIVE..."

    Oh my, I would love to know the word count on Deceive and Deceived. I do believe those words would total over 200 if not more. And I don't believe I am exaggerating. Also, I like a whole lot more dialog, this book had very little dialog in my opinion. The repetitive description of the feelings between the two main characters was just too much. The same thing over and over. I feel like the author couldn't think of anything to write so she would just repeat their feelings and thoughts. I did finish the book, even though I did predict the ending long before the ending. I am not saying the book was bad just annoying with very little dialog. It could have been much better, the plot and story line had so much potential. The narrator I thought did an excellent job and I think that's what kept me listening to the end.

    "A mile wide & an inch deep"

    It started off good, then it became apparent it was one of THOSE cheap cookie-cutter romance novels where the same lines are repeated over and over and over. The lead characters assuming the worst, constantly whining. Same story, different names & locations, nothing original. Ugh! What a waste of a good credit.

    "Loved! Very funny and sweet!"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely! When Grace's secret is uncovered I couldn't help but laugh! To me, that type of situation, while not funny if it was happening to me, HILARIOUS to hear about! The relationship was so cute and there where unexpected twists!

    "couldnt actually finish"
    What disappointed you about Intimate Deception?

    the voices of the men in this book were ridiculous... I actually cant work out if the story was terrible or the reading.. but it was practically embarrassing


    What could Laura Landon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I possibly would have read this book to the end, the premise of the story was as expected.. nothing amazing, but as expected..


    How could the performance have been better?

    The gruffness of the male parts was stupid, unbelievable and inappropriate. Just nauseating and lame


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Intimate Deception?

    I didnt waste my time finishing..glad I didnt pay full price for this


    Any additional comments?

    Nope..

    "Couldnt abide narrator so stopped listening"
    What disappointed you about Intimate Deception?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laura Landon again?

    Yes. I have purchased other Laura Landon books and thoroughly enjoyed them.


    What didn’t you like about Sarah Coomes’s performance?

    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.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Just couldnt get into the book at all


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like to make negative comments but I was very disappointed in he narrator of this book

    "Enjoyable"

    I enjoyed listening to "Intimate Deception", although there were details that seemed unimportant to the story that I felt would have been better without. It being a little different from your average Historical Romance held my interest.

    Sarah Coomes gave a good performance, adding to the listening enjoyment. In my opinion the narrator can make make or break a story.

    I would recommend this audio to any Historical Romance lover.

    "Liked the book, loved the narration.."

    What really did it for my in this book was the narration. Ms. Sarah Coomes made me feel the story. I felt Grace's (our heroine) desperation and her griping fears. I felt the deep connection between Vincent and Grace and fell in love with them. This was a great example of how a narration makes a good book come alive and makes you a part of the story. I was very surprised by the twists and turns towards the end of the story. Very unexpected! All in all I highly recommend this book to all historical romance junkies like me :)

    "Sweet story, excellent narration"

    This is one of my favorite narrators. The book was enjoyable. It was a bit cheesy at time, but overall a good listen.

    "Super Super"

    This is a must for lovers of historical romances. It has everything, suspense, strong women, handsome men, great dialogue and love, love and more love. I will be looking for more books from this author. The narrator was excellent and did a great job.
