    "Temptation is fun"
    Where does Welcome to Temptation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Oh, it's about the same as most of the others.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Welcome to Temptation?

    I just crack up every time I think of the different paint jobs on the water tower.


    Any additional comments?

    Welcome To Temptation is one of my favorite Jennifer Crusie books, so when I was between novels and wanted to listen to something fun and easy I picked it up--I have been enjoying listening to the Audible versions of all of her novels.

    "possibly good story but had to stop listening"
    Would you listen to Welcome to Temptation again? Why?

    Not with the same narrator, it was monotone, fast even at lowest speed and no real presentation. So disappointed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Couldn't bear listening to get into story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Aasne Vigesaa?

    There are many good narrators, one who can tell the story and make
    The listening an experience. She could have been reciting the periodic table it was that monotonous.


    Any additional comments?

    Wont buy anything with this narrator. Sorry, generally I have a tolerance but it was a frustrating experience.

    "Couldn't get past the narrator!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Can't rate the story I couldn't stand the voice of the narrator. Not trying to be rude just not pleasant.

    Story
    "Brilliance at its best"
    Where does Welcome to Temptation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Number One because there is humour, sex, great storylines going on


    What other book might you compare Welcome to Temptation to and why?

    Faking It - same author and narrator This one is my Second best book. Lots of humour, sex, drama and brilliant vocalisation.


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

    Yes Aasne Vigesaa's vocalisation of male and female characters, young, old, sophisticated, rough as, is brilliant listening. I enjoy listening to her - could listen to her story telling all day.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed a lot, enjoyed it thoroughly.


    Any additional comments?

    Would highly recommend it if you do not mind sex, humour and a great plot. Highly entertaining book.

    "A Fun Listen"

    I enjoyed the book, but I will not be looking for the rest of the series. Several characters were annoying, but I didn't mind the main ones.

    "One of my favorite audio books"

    This is one my favorite audio books. Most romance novels have terrible narration, I find myself picking books as much for the narrator as I do the story or author. The narrator nails this story, gets the edginess and humor of the characters. It's funny and sexy story and the characters are rich and three dimensional. If only most audio books could deliver this kind of storytelling. I have listened to this book more than once and it enjoy it every time

    "Cruise does it again"

    And again and again and again! I couldn't put this DOWN! Loved all aspects of this book, and can't wait to read Davy's book (already have it... just waiting now!). This book was all over the place, but somehow... Cruise can pull it off and make it just glow!

    Single mayor, young motherless child, struggling porn producers, murder, nosey small town, and a hoopla of hilarious family.... oh ya, and romance! who knew it was such an awesome combo!

    Story
    "Laughing and Loving - with a little mystery on top"
    What did you love best about Welcome to Temptation?

    The interactions between Sophia and Phin - Amy and Davey hold their own and I love the voice of Wes. The supporting cast is great and Dilly is a hoot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters - all of them - the humor and the love story(s)


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

    I have not, but she did an amazing job on this story - bravo!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the pool scene - he deserved to get his ass handed to him (but I still Love him) - the dressing up in the bar scene and the first time in a bed scene - all so f-ing funny.


    Any additional comments?

    Beware - if you are drinking anything while reading this book, you might spit it all over at certain parts of this book from laughing too hard. - Don't say I didn't warn you.

    I listen to audiobooks mainly while commuting 90 minutes a day and when walking. Sometimes when knitting.

    "Loved it! Excellent chick lit!"

    Really enjoyed this book. It is light and frothy but not an insult to your intelligence. I like Jennifer Crusie's writing and stories. Will definitely listen to more of hers. Also liked the narrator a lot and highly recommend her as well.

    Story
    "Crusie always fun"
    What made the experience of listening to Welcome to Temptation the most enjoyable?

    I love Jennifer Crusie, she is my 'I am to stressed in my life' go to author. I also like the woman who performs, the voices are good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Snarky humor


    What does Aasne Vigesaa bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I use the audio books while I am crafting and cleaning it makes the time fly. Her performance was so good I was able to let go and enjoy not grit my teeth thinking men don't sound like that. She also has good timing and I laughed a couple of times even though I have read the book repeatedly.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Janet Evonovich(sp) you should check out Jennifer Crusie.
