Funny and entirely entertaining. A nice break from heavier reads.
Dragon suited lothario appearing in office
I hated the narrator's voice of the man, his accent made him sound evil and unlikeable
Really boring and predictable
An avid reader who works too much to actually read in the traditional manner she now consumes audiobooks at her job, driving, and running.
A very shallow and trite "thriller" that revolved more on the internal struggle of the main character's self-esteem than it did on the actual plot. There is just so much that could have been done with this plot premise--and has already been done by other and better writers--that I was significantly NOT impressed. The main character--a blonde who has everything from a law degree to super model looks to rich and powerful connections to a supportive mother and sister to a great first job--just can't get over how her father is a chauvinistic asshole who calls her stupid. Sorry if I just don't have any sympathy for her pity party. And I'm not going to even get started on the silly and cardboard romance that dominates the book.
If you want to read a thrilling book about a tortured woman who kicks ass and falls in love with a reformed billionaire thief then stick with J.D. Robb's "In Death" series.
I didn't think Amanda Ronconi's voice for Brandy fit her description, so that irritating me a little bit. But I loved her accents and voices for the other characters. It wasn't a deal breaker, just not what I would imagine her voice sounding like.
Not really, it was just a distraction for my daily commute to where if I skipped a few pages I was never really lost. The story is very predictable but who doesn't like a good Cinderella type love story? I doubt I would listen to this book again, but it kept me entertained during my long commute so I gave it 4 stars.
I liked the different character voices so you never get bored. Cute story.
Why/how would Amanda not know how to pronounce Roberto? Beyond the fact she had Roberto mostly sounding like Count Dracula, I half expected some character in the story to pronounce his name correctly, I just couldn't fathom how such a simple thing was so grossly missed. If his name had not been said in about every other sentence it would not have bothered me so much...oh well the Daily Deal is what it is!
Lots of fun!
Brandi. She was upfront and funny. I really liked most of the characters.
I really like her. I've listened to several books narrated by her and she does am excellent job.
Not sure, but it would make a great movie. I'd go see it.
