The hero was not likeable and the heroine was a doormat. I thought it would have been better if the characters had more about them to root for
not sure, but no more of this series. Once was enough
The scenes in the garden seem to have a lot of promise, but it never got there. It was a beautiful/romantic setting that was not used to full advantage.
I think the scenes where the hero (Leo) lost control . It was too much and even I could tell that soon no one would want him around or believe him about his parent's murder. It was like a rogue lion..yes his name is Leo, so not so subtle!
Also, the scene where the heroine finds a man searching her room. i kept saying out loud..just scream for help. Why don't women act logically. She was in a house with servants , but does not scream for help..I know I want to!!
I bought this book for the narrator, Ashford Macnabb. She is wonderful and I took a chance. Listening to her voice was the best part of this audio book.
It could also have been cut down a little to make it tighter and not so slow moving.
Yes. Loved this story, loved the narration and it is a Whispersync special too.
Ella is strong and steadfast, even in her insecurities.
This is a toss up I loved how well she went between Leo's British and Colin's American accents.
I have a new fave female narrator.
Loved everything about this book: love, sex, adventure, murder and mayhem, it had it all. Loved Leo and Ella and Akshay Hated Henry. The only real problem I had was the use of blimey, Merda, blast and cazzarola (whatever that means.) They were used a little too often. Anyway, I really enjoyed this book and I'm going to buy the second one now.
As always, Ashford MacNab did a fabulous job with all the voices. She should think about giving lessons to some of these terrible narrators
