This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

When Kate Watts opens a food pantry in Minneapolis, she never dreamed it would be this difficult. Facing the prospect of turning hungry people away, she is grateful for the anonymous donations that begin appearing. Determined to identify and thank her secret benefactor, she launches a plan and catches Ian in the act.

Ian intrigues Kate in a way no man ever has. Impressed with her tolerance and captivated by her spirit, he complies and begins to slowly charm his way past her defenses. But Ian has enemies and they're growing restless. When Kate learns exactly how much Ian has paid, she'll discover just how strong her love is for the man who has hacked his way into her heart.

What would have made Heart-Shaped Hack better?

Atypical, Story I seen in Movies takes about 20 minutes to outline....
The book is a Soft Porn Book

I love the Island Book, it was so unique

What didn’t you like about Kristin Condon’s performance?

SHe was fine, a few glitches here and there

What character would you cut from Heart-Shaped Hack?

There are only 2 Main Characters , bantering the Ques off one another,
Too much Innuendo....I could not stand any more....
every pickupline ever used between these 2, I did not believe the conversations
I wanted to hear the real conversations.

Awesome, unique story

The concept is not like others I have read and Tracey has an amazing ability to make you feel all the intended emotions and get wrapped up in her stories. I absolutely loved it.

The ending dragged just a hair but I didn't care because I was so in love with Ian and Kate.

The narrator was fantastic. I think she really nailed the character and her voice crying was what did it in for me. I could feel the pain. The only criticism is that when Ian and Kate would have a discussion, I would sometimes get lost because there was no difference in her male/female voice.

Boring

I couldn't finish it. I know it's a romance novel, but I like there to be an actual story, not just constant sex. I like a story that is so good that I want to fast forward thru the sex parts to get back to the story.

Another Winner from Garvis-Graves

It's official. I adore Tracey Garvis-Graves books. The woman can write.

With this book, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. When you read a lot of this kind of romance, you can usually predict the plot twist and this one wasn't a surprise. But the way the whole thing is written - and the way it was narrated on audio - were really moving. Garvis-Graves is really able to communicate the dynamic of a romantic relationship.

It was also interesting to hear about the world of hackers. Although it was a very basic overview, the lives of cyber criminals was fascinating. I'm not even sure I want to know more because it might scare me to death - the way they could ruin our world so quickly.

On audio, Kristin Condon was both good and bad. Her interpretation of dialogue was spot on and she really set the atmosphere for the book. However, her distinction between voices left a lot to be desired. There were times I wondered who was speaking because there was no vocal difference between Kate and Ian. On the other hand, her voicing of Kate nearly had me in tears. She took great writing and really improved it.

This author's debut novel, On the Island, is one of my favourite books. Now I can't wait to read everything else she's written.

Ridiculously cute banter

What did you like best about this story?

I adore Kate and Ian, especially when they are together and bantering back and forth about his lack of boundaries and her sweetness. I love books that make me "LOL" (yes, Ian, I wrote that), but I was surprised that this book also made me cry. Strong writing that will definitely evoke your emotions.

Any additional comments?

I'm not sure if I got a bad audio copy, but there were certain lines that when read by the narrator sounded as if they had been recorded through a cell phone. It was kind of distracting, and I'm going to try re-downloading the book.

Flat narration

I think I would have liked this more if I read it instead of listening. The narrator was flat, with little emotion and made the story drag. The plot was fairly slow and definitely could have used more action in the first half, but with the narration, it felt like forever. The beginning was interesting, Ian comes off super creepy because he knows everything about Kate; her home, her banking information, where she buys her underwear, ew. I'm surprised Kate wasn't more weirded out when Ian told her all that, I guess that's why they fit together so well. His skills were impressive and the more we learned about Ian, I started to like him. The last half of the book picked up more and had some drama, although fairly predictable. It was an okay read, but I don't recommend the audio.

A love story

I loved Tracey’s other books but I found this a bit corny. Like a Mills and Boon but with glamour thrown in. The worst thing though is the narrator’s affected voice. ‘Drass’ instead of ‘dress’. ‘Yieuw’ instead of ‘you’. And she does that awful thing of pronouncing words that start with ‘St’ as ‘Sht’. ‘Shtraight’ instead of ‘straight’. Ugh. Not sure I’ll read the sequel.
