Stranger | [Megan Hart]

Stranger

I pay strangers to sleep with me. I have my reasons....But they're not the ones you'd expect. For starters, I'm a funeral director taking over my dad's business. Not exactly the kind of person you'd expect to fork over cash for the lust and urgency only live skin-to-skin contact can create. Looking at me, you wouldn't have a clue I carry this little secret so close it creases up like the folds of a fan. Tight. Personal. Ready to unravel in the heat of the moment. Unsurprisingly, my line of work brings me face-to-face with loss.

Publisher's Summary

I pay strangers to sleep with me. I have my reasons....But they're not the ones you'd expect. For starters, I'm a funeral director taking over my dad's business. Not exactly the kind of person you'd expect to fork over cash for the lust and urgency only live skin-to-skin contact can create. Looking at me, you wouldn't have a clue I carry this little secret so close it creases up like the folds of a fan. Tight. Personal. Ready to unravel in the heat of the moment. Unsurprisingly, my line of work brings me face-to-face with loss.

So I decided long ago that paying for sex would be one of the best (and arousing) ways to save myself from the one thing that would eventually cut far too deep. But Sam was a mistake. Literally. I signed on to "pick up" a stranger at a bar, but took Sam home instead. And now that I've felt his heat, his sweat and everything else, can I really go back to impersonal? Let's just hope he never finds out about my other life.

    "Wish I could give this a 5 but..."

    I love Megan Hart books and this one is excellent. I hate to give this story anything less than a 5 but the narrator made me knock it back to a 3. What a great story with excellent written characters but the narrator sounds like a little girl reading porn. A different narrator would have made this book a 5+ but Gia St. Claire made it uncomfortable. It sounded like a 12 year old girl reading an adult novel...just didn't work for me. Read the book, skip this audible version.

    "Great Story"

    This was the first book I listened to that was written by Megan Hart. I love how she was so detailed in how the surroundings smelled and looked, it made you feel like you were there and could actually see the characters. It had me laughing and crying. I definitely will buy another of her books.

    "Good book needs better reader...."

    I will say that the writing is not the issue with this one... the narrator is... her girlish "quippy" tone just makes the writing hard to notice... or believe.... too bad really.

    What would have made Stranger better?

    A story perhaps??


    Has Stranger turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely. First chapters were nothing but ridiculously detailed descriptions of sex with a stranger.


    Any additional comments?

    I deleted the book after 30 minutes of listening.

    Story
    "Boring and Vanilla"
    Would you try another book from Megan Hart and/or Gia St. Claire?

    Not likely


    What could Megan Hart have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The sexual adventures were mundane and boring. Nothing exciting about the main character or her actions.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gia St. Claire???s performances?

    Maybe.


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

    Most of the scenes involving her parents or the rest of her family for that matter. That portion of the story didn't relate.


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed in this book. I have listened to Hart's books in the past and they were much more exciting. I found myself fast forwarding through alot of this book in the second part, listening for excited utterances to stop for, no such luck.Talk about beating a dead horse>>> Didn't think it would ever end.

    "Enjoyable"

    I enjoyed this book however, I found it a little too far fetched in the reality department but hey
    do we read Megan Hart's books for the fantasy or the reality. This book will take you away from real life for the 12 hours or so.

    "Not Megan Hart's best but still good..."

    This wasn't her best book in my mind, but it was still a pretty good book...I recommend listening to it!
