"Funny, sexy, and wise - it's time to welcome Crusie into the pantheon of top-flight romance writers." (Kirkus Reviews)
This may be a better book to read as a hard copy. There were so many characters I couldn't keep track of whole the story line or who the good guys and bad guys were. The story is very thin.
This book was sooo good. I really enjoyed it. The narrater great. I hope there is a follow one book to this.
I just finish listen to Welcome to Temptation. I was a little hesitant to get the book when I saw the reviews about the narrator. The1st hours was a little difficult to listen to, Aasne Vigesaa seem to be in fast forward especially in the none speaking part ??? but after that she calmed down. This is my 2nd Jennifer Cruise books and I thoroughly enjoyed this book as much as Maybe This Time. I enjoyed the connection between Sophie and Phin ??? you knew right from the beginning they would stay together.
This is my first listen for this Author. I felt the story was great, and I loved the wit. I would have given it 5 stars except I felt the author could have been a bit smoother in the conversational transition. It was a bit elementary in that after each statement she would put "Phin said" for example. Other than that tiny annoyance it was a fun story, unique and well read. I will purchase books from this author again.
The narration of this book was awful. I couldn't stand to listen to it. I tend to listen to 3 to 4 books a month and have not had this problem but once. As for the book, I like the author so I might buy a paperback.
I found this book through read suggestions and enjoyed it. It wasn't terribly deep, and was a quick 'read' (or listen in this case). If you want a quick book that you can get into, but doesn't require a lot of attention this is one :)
Characters a bit old-fashioned and stilted. Took a long time to figure out where the story was going. Pace picked up a couple of times, but didn't follow through. Not my favorite, but I did finish it.
I downloaded this to try a new author and was pleasantly surprised with the wit and fun phrase turning. There are some parts that could use a little more delevopment, but all in all- if u want a romance without porn-style sex scences and a bit of mystery- give this story a try.
I loved this story. I had to persist to enjoy the narrator. For me she talks too fast. I understand it's written for speedy dialog & I like it but when you are listening to a story you need some time to let your mind figure out who is talking to whom. Don't let it stop you it is a good read! It's LOL funny & interesting.
