    "This IS Your Mother's Erotica"

    Book one of the series had just enough character development that I bought this because I was actually interested in seeing what would unfold. Despite the fact that this is just another series with a kinky millionaire who must have his way, I was entertained.

    Now, I am approximately 1/4 of the eye rolling way thru this book and I have had all the "thrusting manhood", "Shattering Core", and "Pulsing womanhood" I can stand.

    This is one average length novel, chopped into three teeth clenchingly bad novella's to collect 3 credits.

    The narrator is better in Submit, but her tone is so low that you really have to focus on listening because any other noise in the house or car seems to drown her out.....thankfully I won't have to worry about that because I have had all the "lengthy shaft" I can stomach.

    "Enthralling, fascinating."

    Gripping psychodrama romance. Better than Fifty Shades. I can't wait for Book 3! The sex scenes are fun, but it's the psychological insights that are really exciting and stimulating.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes only if they have all four books to read in order.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rafe. He was so complex but when he finally realized who and what he wanted, he turned into such a romantic.


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

    About the same. She did a good job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love is never easy.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like cliffhangers but I knew that before I bought these audiobooks so it was ok. I would recommend only reading these books in order at one time. All four need to be read together or none of them will make sense.

    What made the experience of listening to Submit the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed Lilly Swans voices over the voice of the first book. Her voice is much more friendly and easy to listen to.


    Which character – as performed by Lilly Swan – was your favorite?

    Ari

    Story
    "Grr...I just don't know"

    In my heart of hearts I want to say I threw this book down in disgust that the leading man Rafe would treat Ari like that...but it was like watching a train wreck, I couldn't look away.

    This book has flaws...people seem to do things out of character to continue the plot (which I truly dislike!), people are upset when I can't understand why, and fine when I am screaming at my iphone that I can't believe that just happened! Time lines are messed up, one minute they are taking a vacation after 1 month...then she gets home from a 4 day trip and her 3 months are up...I was confused. I did like the secondary action of the side characters coming into their own stories. All I can say is YAY Ari for the end of the book....and boo rafe! But then I had to get book 3 to see where the heck all this was going!

    Overall I just don't know about this book...I think the third will make or break my love of the series. The narrator changed....but I can't say it's for the better! The guys no longer sound like trolls...they now all sound the same and all sound like the girls, barely any distinction. Follow that up with the worst editing hack job of an audiobook I have EVER heard and you have a miserable listen. The chick was speed reading and if you tried to slow it down it echoed...and I'm originally from NJ fast talking doesn't bother me, but fast talking a love scene was just creepy! Then there seemed to be no breaks between paragraphs, or sentences and the whole timing was just so incredibly off. I will have to say though I already started book 3 and I am happy to report that they FINALLY got the narration and editing correct.

    I'll keep you posted!

    "Needs a new narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, not the audio, the narrator sounds as if she is not interested and come off a bored!


    Would you recommend Submit to your friends? Why or why not?

    No to listen too...boring narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    did not bring life to story


    Could you see Submit being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    maybe


    Any additional comments?

    get a new narrator

    "Love the story; dislike the narrator!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Submit to be better than the print version?

    No! I found the narrator read the story too fast and lacked expression. I read this book before listening to the audio version. I must say that I am very disappointed in the narrative. I think she took all the emotion and excitement from the sorry. Very disappointed!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't hear her express any excitement in the reading. I thought that it may pick up as the book went along, but I was wrong!


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to book three in this series but I hope they choose a better narrator!
