    "SECRETS, SECRETS, SECRETS THEY BLOW UP EVERY TIME"

    Please don't go buying this expecting it to be the usual HOT listen that Maya Banks usually writes (and the cover suggests) as it's definitely not - it's more Mills & Boon.

    But what it is is a tender, sweet, riveting romantic book about the dilema of unrequited love which include secrets, seduction and hope as two best friends take a gamble of crossing the boundary of friendship hoping it will lead to love but aware they could lose everything. Another well written MB book (just without any heat!) and, as it unfolds, you understand the emotions of both the main likeable characters involved and find yourself pondering over the all important question of should she tell him and exactly when would the right time be.

    You'll laugh, cry and sigh as their turbulent emotionally and sexually charged relationship grips you, then events and a disaster spins you about until, in the end, you're spat out the other end breathless, exhausted but grateful for another great listen.

    Worth a credit? Well it falls under my $10 rule, so my dilemma is if it was $19.77 instead of $9.77 would I regret the credit - no I wouldn't but I would have liked/expected it to have been longer and to include either the addition of her usual spice, or a final chapter or epilogue that not only wraps up the HEA but puts a nice big pink or blue bow on top.

    "For a Banks book, this was ok to fairly good."

    I think I just have such high expectations for every single Maya Banks book I read/listen to after listening to the Sweet Series and McCabe Clan Series. This was simply ok to fairly good. There were great moments, but then there were boring moments. The plot line was good, but at times, I was like Toni should have just told Simone about the baby already... but no... Secrets Secrets! The ending was a bit dramatic… but I like the HEA ending.

    Ok narration. There really isn't a difference in male voices or female voices. The narrator more so read it not narrated it... if that makes sense... It was still decent though.

    Credit... not a Maya Banks gotta have must buy! Maybe even a sale.

    Story
    "Good, Simple Romance...HORRIBLE narration"
    Would you listen to Seducing Simon again? Why?

    Yes, if someone else was doing the narration. The story was just a straight forward romance. No mysteries to solve, no evil characters hanging around--just a "let's listen to this and enjoy" kind of story. Sometimes it is just nice to listen to an "easy" listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between all the characters--not just Simon and Toni. These four individuals has made a true family for themselves and it was fun to listen to the interplay between them all.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different narrator. When I listen to my audiobooks, I like to be able to distinguish between the different people in the story. This narrator used almost the same voices for all the characters...male, female, young or old. AND when the story calls for someone to yell or get angry or upset, it would be nice for the narrator to at least change the tone of the narration....It was all the same drab thing...Happy, angry, crying, scared...never a change in the tone . Unbelievably bad!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of the scenes were funny. Some of the reactions to how Toni would act or look...that was pretty funny

    Number 1


    What other book might you compare Seducing Simon to and why?

    None it was just an awesome love story.


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

    This a wonderful love story I got all teary eyes when they found out how much they love each other especially when Simon thought he was going to lose Tony.

    "Enjoyed it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have to admit that I really enjoyed this and the author kept the tension through to the end of the book. I liked all of the characters. The narrator did a decent job, although not the best I've ever heard. Fortunately, you could tell who was speaking just because the book was written well enough. Good read!

    This was a very touching tale of unrequited love, secrets, stupid things men do when they are drunk and everything in between.

    "OMG Maya, this book was BORING......."
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Rebecca Estrella?

    I've read Maya Banks before and was sorely disappointed but I would try her novels again.


    Has Seducing Simon turned you off from other books in this genre?

    not yet


    How could the performance have been better?

    the narrater was very monotone and didn't help the story at all. maybe she found it as boring as I did and that's how she sounded...... bored /c:


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    it was mercifully short.


    Any additional comments?

    Just don't do it. Maya has so many other books that are really good.
