It is there that she meets a man who turns her on physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Interesting storyline but dialogue and narration failed

The storyline could have been developed into something very interesting, that’s the only reason I forced myself to finish the book. I blame the editor, if there was one.
The women in the book are portrayed as educated, refined, and goal oriented women; but their dialogue and actions are those of an uneducated adolescent. Furthermore, I felt the author gave up on developing the story, ended without that moment of clarification we all look for, then just added an epilogue to quickly summarize—by having a lead character tell another what happened with a few brief facts.

It had potential but lost it during what appears to be a rushed production.

not good in the least

I honestly don't even know where to start with this book. The reader paused in all the wrong places and clearly does not know how to read audio books which would pull you out of the story in confusion. The story itself was shy Scheistey to say the least with no real resolution and characters were all just shady. Every adjective was the same in every situation....whenever she got mad she was "fuming" and it seemed that she was constantly fuming. No character development bad story line and no resolution.

Enjoyed

Good sex scenes. Reasonable story line of a little simplistic. Narrator mispronounced a lot of words which took away from the writing quite a bit.

Cheap

I almost turned it off several times. The mispromunciations of the narrator drove me crazy. It took forever to develop the story. If this is typical of the offerings in the Romance Package I'll not download anymore. This book wad truly a waste of time.

If I could give negative stars, I would.

What the heck did I just listen to?
This book is awful. I'm not even sure they is a strong enough word.

Nearly everything from the plot, to the characters, to the language is cringeworthy and not in a good way.

I cannot adequately express how vehemently I loathed this book.

Good Girl Gone Bad

Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Door to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version. I have a busy schedule and right now I prefer audible so I can be efficient with daily tasks.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ariel - She represents what most women at some point have experienced in their relationship. Feeling loved, sexy and wanted.Trey- How he takes control and love his mannerism. Marie - I love how she is bold and lives her life to the fullest.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Ariel finally entered the black door. How she describes fantasy playground for women. Had me feeling like I wanted to be there.

Any additional comments?

This series was an excellent read. I was searching for books narrated by Honey Jones and found The Black Door. I instantly knew this was going to be a good one. Honey always bring a book to LIFE!! Now I'm waiting to hear Seduction.....Velvet you have a new fan!! I will refer my friends to the audible version. Thanks
