Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
Sometimes you just want to relax and listen to something that has it all. This book has comedy, sex, and drama. It's not too serious, but sometimes after a long horrible day, I can't take too much real and this book hit the spot for me. I was hesitate about getting it, but was pleased I did.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
This is a light, funny novel that will keep you interested and chuckling the whole time. While I agree that the narrater has some strange voices for some of the men, that was only a minor distraction to a very fun 'read.'
Got it on sale and figured I'd give it a try. I ended up staying up way too late to keep listening. It's light and cute, no life-changing lessons learned, but it was just a lot of fun to listen to. I thought it actually had kind of a Molly Harper feel to it as far as the sarcasm and banter between the characters, but that may be just because Amanda Ronconi has a way of bringing "smart-alec-isms" to life. Definitely a fun distraction for days when menial tasks are on the agenda.
Say something about yourself!
creative, fun story that makes you want to listen to the whole book all at once. i personally think this is a really good book and is worth the prise and or credits. love amanda ronconi.
I liked the relationship development, they were a great team. I did not especially care of the Narrators version of an aristocratic italian count accent and speech patterns, but it was not so bad that it keep me from enjoying the story.
with a name like Brandi I suspected an airhead character. Not so, this is a fun story that grabs you in from the beginning and you want to see what will be around the next corner. The characters have more depth than first thought. Some people can tell a good story about anything, I suspect Christina Dodd is one of them. I always enjoy Amanda Ronconi's reading. She knows fun when she sees it.
I bought this book a while ago along with a couple others and im now getting around to listening to them and this one i was just not completely thrilled with. I was a bit slow and tedious compared to some of her others. Amanda Ronconi is always a good narrator just not impressed with the story line.
Yes, I really like Amanda Ronconi as a narrator.
I wouldn't cut a scene the whole book was just slow moving for me and the story line wasnt that impressive compared to some of her other books.
I will still continue listening to Christina Dodd's books majority of them are very well written and very well narrated by Amanda.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
A light romance and although far from my favorite it was an easy listen. The book was a bit more of the mafia genre than I usually like, which is just not my taste. Overall I liked the heroine but she was sometimes a bit of a rag. Hero seemed to perfect to be true, but since this is fiction he was scrumptious Count. I did enjoy this book even with its minor faults. I would read another book from this author if there was a sale, but probably not if I had to pay full price or a credit. Narrator was good, I have always enjoyed her work.
Love this narrator, have listened to her with Molly Harper's "Nice Girls" series, and she does and excellent job with these types of quirky, smirky books. It is fun at times, and serious at times. Predictable, but who cares. Definitely a chick flick type of book, that you can listen too, laugh at times, and feel good at the end of it.
Mu favorites are paranormal, supernatural, post-apocalyptic, and horror!
I suppose this book was pleasant and enjoyable in the moment, but i currently find myself shocked that i just read it earlier this month and already cannot remember much of it. So it was not very memorable! I suppose that this makes me less qualified to write an accurate review with any further details. It was short and easy to read and i may read it again in the future -especially since i cannot remember it already!
