"Hustle, Sweet Love's crackling good humor will leave you in stitches." (Rave Reviews)
"Hustle, Sweet Love is funny, sexy, and wholesome. It should be read with a good tanning lotion . . . it's hot enough to give you sunburn in the dead of winter!" (Romantic Times)
This story is very funny. The relationship between Lacey and Michael is not convincing but together they make this story a great listen. Good narrator too.
The story line isnt bad, but the style of writing is, in my opinion, really anoying. So are the main characters, especially the woman, whom I personally would hate if she existed in reality. Absolutely no brain at all and not in a good way.
I cannot do it justice, explaining how bad this book was. The storyline was so AWFUL it would make the worst Harlequin romance look like great literature. The "heroine" was a complete and embarrassingly spineless clueless wuss, when she wasn't being an ear-splitting screeching shrew. The "hero" had a beyond-teeth-grinding split personality: one was scarily obsessed with the heroine's body (and only her body) and the other was cold, insensitive, and ruthless. He used both of his personalities to constantly boss her around and she would just meekly obey. Ugh! Also, the narrator was ALL wrong. He gave the heroine a masculine voice which was disconcerting enough, but his narrative was done in such a sober and staid tone that he sounded like he should be announcing the great composers on National Public Radio.
This was one of the best entertaining books I have ever heard. It will keep you interested from start to finish!!!
