This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Rowan Greenwood has everything she's supposed to want from life - a good family, a bright future, and a proposal from a handsome and wealthy magic hunter. She knows she should be content with what she has. If only she could banish the idea that there's more to life than marriage and children, or let go of the fascination with magic that she's been forced to suppress since childhood. When Rowan unknowingly saves the life of one of her people's most feared enemies, that simple act of compassion rips her from her sheltered life and throws her into a world of magic that's more beautiful, more seductive, and more dangerous than she ever could have imagined. Rowan might get everything she ever dreamed of - that is, if the one thing she's always wanted doesn't kill her first.

Love the Story, Females Voice Not For me

Would you listen to Bound: Bound, Book 1 again? Why?

Great story, but the female's voice, is like listening to Violet from the incredibles, which while does a lot to establish character for me was distracting. But overall I loved it, and it's all personal preference!

I really enjoyed

Even though Aren acts like the cowardly Lion when it comes to his brother. I liked how his character progresses. Rowan has to go thru a lot and seems to have much more growing to do. overall I enjoyed the adventure but unfortunately the rest of the series is not available on audible.

Loved the story, hated the narrators

Any additional comments?

Both narrators sounded too old for the parts and the female had a bad vocal fry that was distracting. Great story, though. Looking forward to the next two books.

the narrator ruined everything!

that was the most painful narration I've had to listen to. Justine Eyre's voice was grating. my mom thought she sounded constipated while my daughter thought she was on the brink of death. I almost wished the heroine would meet an untimely end just so she'd stop speaking. I'm going to try reading the book without audio to see if I like it better.

Voice fry/no character development

I tried to ignore the negative reviews and bought this book anyway and even if I could get past the bad narrator’s (nothing personal but they just did not hit the nail on the head) voice fry and old English man accent, the book was subpar too. I know it must take lots of courage to do these things and I hate to criticize but the character development was null with sooo many holes in the story. I only finished it because I paid for it.

I really enjoyed this one. The narration was great, and I was sad to see there was no second volume!

Great story

I enjoyed this book. I very much wish the next two books were available on audio. I definitely plan to finish the series one day, if I ever have the time to sit and read. Listening to books is much more convenient for me.
