I have liked other books by this author but this was a shocker. It was a single thought dragged (and I do mean dragged) out for far too long. The monologues were excruciating and I only persevered because I was hoping something interesting would happen. Spoiler - it didn't!

What disappointed you about Seven Years to Sin?

Everything from the opening chapter. The awful language, the absolutely dreadful narrator, the plot. It was excruciating to listen to.

What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Written more In the style of her other books like the Crossfire ones.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Fiona Underwood?

Anybody!
One of my pet peeves for narrators is when they obviously are just reading it cold and pronounce words incorrectly. For instance shone (as in past tense of shine) is not pronounced shown as in own and migraine in this book was so weird I had to rewind to make sense of the way she pronounced it.

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

Not for me - I persevered for a while before i gave up but it put me to sleep and I felt no connection with the characters or gave any thought to them whereas characters in her other books had me thinking about them long after I finished the book.
I lasted about 1/3 of the way into the first volume and then just gave up. Life is too short to waste on rubbish like this.

Any additional comments?

Don't just churn out books to make money . Give them a little bit of substance.
