Bad narration takes away from the book

What would have made Bane better?

Better narration

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bane was a little more realistic

How did the narrator detract from the book?

long drawl and country twang from each character made my skin crawl

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

Crystal being so "stupid" and naïve

Crystal's Voice

Is driving me crazy. It is so whiny I couldn't listen to this book. I had to revert to reading it instead of listening. Before others go crazy I purchased both versions because my eyes get tired and listening really helps. Another great book from Mrs Jackson but I could not enjoy the audible version. As a previous reviewer stated Band's was excellent but the Crystal voice prevented me from enjoying the audible version. THIS IS ANOTHER BJ MUST READ.

Narrator

The big was GOOD but I didn’t care for the narrator... Please use Ron Butler or Avery next time.

Bad narrator

I enjoy the Westmoreland series and was looking forward to listening to this book however I may not even be able to finish the book because of the narrator. Crystal’s voice is grating my nerves.

Lovely Story!

I absolutely love Bane and Crystal’s love story. The narrator’s female voice was tough to listen to. He’s great for the male, however Ron Butler has spoiled me for any other narrators. Ron is the absolute best!

Hard to listen…

I must be honest and say the book was great and I love Ms Jackson’s work but this narrator was disappointing! Monotone and robotic

Brenda Jackson did it again...She is the best!

Brenda Jackson books are such great reads. I love Bane, we all should have a protector and a soul mate to love us this strong.

Great story

I love Bane and Crystal's story. It is full if intrigue and excitement as well as danger. A live story only Brenda Jackson could write.
