My name is Greer Karas, and I should never be allowed near another bottle of booze again. Because when I drink, my friend and I do stupid things. Like take a page out of my older brother Creighton's playbook and post something completely asinine on the Internet. Waking up with a giant hangover to find my humiliating personal ad has gone viral is not my finest moment.

Has Dirty Girl turned you off from other books in this genre?

Both this book and sequel spend most of the very limited recording repeating themselves and the stupidity of the characters. I do like this genre and normally the narrators are among my favorites, but this story insults our intelligence and wallets. These should have been one book and looks like it was cut in half just to make more money.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I like the narrators. They are among my favorites, but it's hard to narrate a story about an educated stupid spoiled woman and a man who doesn't't have a history until the last few chapters.

What character would you cut from Dirty Girl?

Banner

Any additional comments?

Don't cut a book in half to line your pockets and don't write and repeat just to create a longer book. that is beneath your talent.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a long awaited book in the series. I look forward to being a part of Diana Gabaldon's uniquely woven historical novel The story plays in my head and I imagine viewing the story first hand.

Any additional comments?

Diana Gabaldon is one of the most gifted writers of our time. Davina Porter's is the premier narrator of our time. I know that says a lot, but I listen to a lot of audio books!

Sean Ferro is my addiction. I can't tell him no, no matter what he asks for, and I know there are so many dark questions behind those blue eyes, so many things he wants me to do with him. When I watch him go down on one knee, with his sexy body covered in sand, and hold up a glittering ring, I can barely stand. It looks like he's going to propose, and I know exactly what I'm going to say.

What would have made The Ferro Family: The Arrangement Series, Volume 11 better?

This is a story written in chapters that pose as stories. It should be explained that each of these purchases is a cliff hanger, and constant purchases and downloads are necessary.I believe a book, even an audible version should tell a story and not leave the listener feeling cheated

Has The Ferro Family: The Arrangement Series, Volume 11 turned you off from other books in this genre?

Other romance and erotic type books by Audible that I have read tell a complete story. One feels like one wants to read the sequel...not that one HAS to read the sequel

What about Kitty Bang’s performance did you like?

Kitty Bang is a talented narrator. She assumes her character's voice and inflections beautifully.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story might be good if it was all contained in one or two editions.

Any additional comments?

I find it hard to believe that this series gets so many stars. I know that Audible reserves the right to print a review. I hope that the good and bad reviews are being posted. This is the only series that I have reviewed. I am usually easy to please. My opinion has merit.I would have been happy to ask for a refund for these (I bought them on sale, rather than using credits). I imagined they were short stories about arrangements and so I saved them for a number of plane flights I was going to take this summer. Pity that I won't know how The Arrangement ends, because I will not waste any more money on this story. Too many honestly written good books out there.

Even the covers are poorly done. They show up minuscule on an iPod and one cannot tell which is which. Some have numbers. Others do not

Avery's life is slipping between her fingers. Everything that she worked to achieve will be gone if she doesn't take this job. The idea of being a call girl doesn't appeal to Avery, but her first client does. Sean is too difficult to resist. The few times she's gotten close to Sean, he shuts down. This might be the opportunity to fix her finances and find love. She just has to have enough guts to go through with it.

If this is a new tactic or trial by Amazon to get folks to buy by the chapter, then shame on you. There are far better choices in entire stories out there.
