I cannot say I was particularly moved by the book but definately entertained.
As an artist busy with my hands and eyes I had to give up reading. Then audio books came into my life and I am back to over 200 books a yr.
A slightly different kind of story by Katie MacAlister but fun as always. Her characters are always a bit off the wall and snarky. Can't wait to read the next installment of this particular story.
The storyline was really weak and the narrator was a bad choice.
I really didn't find much of anything interesting and the storyline was slow.
I really like the other books in the series, but the narrator really ruined this book for me.
First, I must admit I am reading/listening to these books out of order. I'm not sure if it's because of this or because I have recently read/listened to some very good books, but this story was just completely lacking. It left me feeling entirely lost and wondering if I had purchased only half a book. It leads up to the point where they will begin their relationship (which I knew because I read them bass akwards) but then stops, before they even GET together! The story itself seemed to have an excellent concept, but horrible execution. The main character acts like an airhead the entire book and, quite honestly is an idiot. I've, thankfully only ever met one person that reminded me of Pia, or else I'd probably have gone insane. It's the kind of person that you ask to do something, Tell to do something, then figure 'screw it' and do it yourself. Though, I must admit the main bad guy I didn't realize would be who it was, however the end of the book Really doesn't tie that end up either. I'm left feeling as though I'm holding a bunch of loose ends, and that that's how the author wanted, so that we'd buy her next book in the series. I'm normally alright with cliff-hangers, but by darned it, at least bring the main character and her mate together in the book that's about Them. With that I think I'm done with my rant. Pick another book, even though the narrator tried, and I really did like how she did the voices (though Pia took a little getting used to) I enjoyed being able to tell who was who by the voice she put to them alone. That, sometimes is rare with narrators.
I liked the story well enough, though I think it would have been more entertaining reading it rather than listening to it. The narrator's voice was whiny and too old. It made the snarky humor more annoying than it would have been on paper, and the sex scenes sort of squicky because I'm picturing a too-old and unattractive heroine due to the voice. My biggest issue, though, is that this is not a complete story. There is a sequel and this book ends on a cliffhanger. After over 10 hours of listening, I was not amused to get an incomplete story. There should be a big warning that this is not a stand-alone volume. I don't appreciate having to pay for another full audiobook.
I hate being forced to buy a second book to finish a story. it's just wrong. unless you want to buy 2 book don't waste your credit on this one.
