Any additional comments?

Wow, based on all the stellar reviews, I am surprised by how much I disliked the narrator for this book. I've read MM several times in print and was pretty excited to get a chance to listen to one of Kristen Ashley's books. The sample had only Tyra's voice, so when the narrator got to Tack it was an unpleasant surprise. There was absolutely no hint of his "deep, gravelly voice" and though I know the narrator is a woman there are a number of other woman narrators out there who can do a great male voice. This one can't. Additionally, she frequently gave a jersey accent to a greater or lesser degree to many of her characters, including, at times, Tack. Such an accent is completely off base for a Coloradan originally from California. Simply awful. My advice is to stick with Kristen Ashley's books, which I love. This narrator only detracts from her stories.
