Disappointed in this one. The story line was interesting enough, but the leading female was a bore. She was dull and simpering and had no backbone. Leading male was just as boring, though was repeatedly referred to as 'beastly', by others as well as himself. He was bossy, condescending and a bit of a jerk, but there was nothing beastly about him. There were numerous grammatical errors as well. It comes across as juvenile due to the simplicity of the writing, however there are numerous sex scenes, so it was meant for mature readers. Oh, and the sex scenes are boring and repetitive. My main problem is that a man appears in a woman's life, and all of a sudden she lets him take control of her life, talk to her like she is a child and call all of the shots. Unbelievable. I had to laugh when he calls her his 'copper-haired spitfire', as that was the last description I would apply to her. Sorry, but it just didn't make the grade for me. The narrator did a great job, though!
