It started off as a dare...a harmless one-night-stand with a complete stranger. He was just another bad boy I met in a bar, a harmless fling to start my summer vacation. One unbelievable night of sex, and I'd never have to see him again. But the next morning as I pull up to the lake house my mom has rented for the summer, I get the feeling my world is about to crumble...it was just supposed to be us girls - me, my two sisters, and Mom...but we're not alone....

Would you try another book from Colleen Masters and/or Eli Walker?

Yes I would try another Colleen Masters book. I made the mistake of previously listening to Eli Walker and ordered another book. She talks too fast!!!!!!!

Would you recommend Stepbrother Bastard to your friends? Why or why not?

Sure. Ok story, just read instead of listen.

How could the performance have been better?

The editor left in A LOT of the narrator's "errors" in the beginning. I was half tempted to turn it off and request refund within the first 10-15 minutes.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stepbrother Bastard?

Other than the errors and talking too fast to really feel what's going on?

Stepbrother Billionaire is a standalone audiobook. It contains adult themes, harsh language, and graphic sexual content.

Would you try another book from Colleen Masters and/or Eli Walker?

Author was pretty good. Narrator was awful to listen to.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Expected

Would you be willing to try another one of Eli Walker’s performances?

Absolutely not. She had no emotion and was just reading aloud....so fast! One sentence mashed into the next and it was so hard to follow sometimes. Slow down, take a breath and show some emotion in her voice.

Benjamin Chase is not my type. He's abrasive. He's arrogant. He doesn't take anything seriously. I'd die before I dated him, but he has something different in mind. He has to get married in the next nine months, or he loses his company to his ex-wife. And apparently I'm the most eligible bachelorette in town.

They say that your school years are supposed to be the best years of your life, and that you should make the most of them because you'll miss them when you're all grown up. Up until Maisie Preston's senior year, she would have totally agreed with that statement. Life was great, she had everything going for her, excellent grades, great parents, an annoying yet caring twin brother, and an impossibly sweet boyfriend. Everything was perfect - that is until the arrival of Zach Anderson.

Would you try another book from Kirsty Moseley and/or Talmadge Ragan?

I love the other 2 books by Kirsty...I own in audio and kindle format. Those were great books and I can't even get into this one. The narrator was kind of annoying with the dictation, but it almost seemed like it was altered.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kirsty Moseley again?

Yes

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her dictation was kind of off. Maybe I noticed because I was really trying to get into the story.

Riley Tanner has a best friend, the best friend a girl could ask for. He's supportive, loyal, honest, trustworthy, kind, and thoughtful. He's also the biggest player in school. Their relationship has always been easy and affectionate, but after Riley's month long vacation, things become a little strange. She starts to look at him in ways that go way beyond the 'friend zone'. Add in her best friend's rival, and things become a whole lot more complicated.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If they find new Narrator, the story is GREAT...it's just ridiculous to listen to the "voices".

What was one of the most memorable moments of Always You?

The whole story is a great story. It is worth reading the book. Skip the audio.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrea Emmes?

anyone!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Always You?

none

Any additional comments?

This is such a great story. I wish I could share the link on facebook, but i won't do so with this narrator. Please redo the narration and release again....if that's an option.
