I expected very little from this title given the reported story line and cover picture, but one reviewer's comments caught my eye, and I decided to go..Show More » for it. As it happens - I loved it! I loved the narration - particularly the hero's rather deadpan-ish voice - as well as the heroine's sassy one, both contributing to my enjoyment of the story. Really the book is carried by the narration (for me anyway) and the characters. Eva, the heroine, is strong, intelligent and delightfully wicked, and I found myself laughing out loud at the interactions between the characters. The story is interesting enough, given the rather limited options for this genre (which I happen to love anyway), and I especially appreciated that when the plot line ran out, the author let it go and concentrated on the relationship between the lovers - which is the main interest anyway. It's a fairy tale to be sure but one with more humor and self-awareness than most romances, which is why I gave it such a high rating.
This would have been better, I think, if I had read it instead of listening to the audiobook. I didn't care for the narrator. Her voices were not quit..Show More »e right to me. For example, Eva is a strong character and showed it in the previous book but, in this one, she sounds like a giggling school girl. I didn't particularly care for Ives' voice either. I hate that this taints the book for me. It's not the author's direct fault. Her work is good and I appreciate it
The story was interesting. I like that both main characters are out of the norm. I enjoy the way the brothers interact.
