The storyline should have made for a great read but the female character was spineless and the male character insecure.....all made worse by the terrible narration. I have never disliked a narrator before but she was so wrong for this book it just ruined it.
Romantic, fascinating and thrilling.
I do not like her narration of Gianna's voice, it makes her sound blah........
Yes, I would listen to this book in one sitting.
Not particularly, but I was also doing my housework at the time so that isn't totally true.
I kept on waiting for the female lead to grow a back bone. It didn't happen.
Clear and wel read
It was a nice story with just a good amount of angst.
The hero. Sometimes the heroine sounded a little too whiny.
When the hero overcame his adversity.
I was really excited to listen to this book. Was even enjoying it in the beginning, but then things progressed, where I felt and thought, "What did I miss? How did that happen?"
I am having difficulty putting this into words...
this book was offensive to me.
Fertility issues were addressed within the first couple of weeks of marriage.
Adoption was frowned upon by the heroine.
No communication between main characters...
We didn't get a chance to understand the leading man either. It was like reading a "one sided" book, and because the heroine was so insecure, we were unable to "read" into his behaviors.
I hope I make some sense. The heroine was a sweetheart, but needed more backbone.
Oh, how I loved this book. It was one of the sweetest things I've read in a really long time. The love shown in this book was so tender and overwhelming that I found myself crying as if I were the main character. Thanks for such a great story and a wonderful emotional adventure!
I have listened to this book over a dozen times. The story is well written and you can't help but imagine everything happening. I'll look for another book by the author.
This is a good read when you want to escape and just listen and enjoy. This novel was well written, although the Italian accents weren't the best by the narrator.
