Love Penny, Dislike the Narrators

I love Pennys work and this one was very enjoyable. Its not a Winston book but it was fun! Maybe read this one instead of listen. Maybe Joy Nash should just read all of Pennys books. I enjoy her male and female voices. These two, not so much. Especially Stephen doing a female voice. It sounded drag and distracted from the moment. Depending on the cost it might be better to buy this book instead of using a credit since is only a 5 hour read.

In love with Tolstoy


I love Penny Reid. All the books I’ve read of hers, have been awesome. Kissing Tolstoy is no different, although maybe better. The story is so compelling and funny and smart. Anna is a riot, so smart and sarcastic. I love her. Luca is a little tortured, like a character in a russian novel. It’s a slow burn romance, so satisfying And funny. It’s hilarious, actually. So incredibly well written. So intelligent and addictive. The narration is awesome, Fiona Fisher did an amazing job. I could listen to her forever. And Steven Dexter is so intense and seductive. It is an incredible audiobook. I see myself listening to this story many, many times. I truly loved it. I would give it 6 stars, because 5 are not enough. It’s a masterpiece.

Loved it!

I couldn’t have picked two better narrators. They both made this story come alive. They were a perfect fit! This is one of my favorite Penny Reid books. I’ve loved it since I read part 1 in her news letter. I just wish the book was longer and had more Luca point if views.

Fun, sexy, and a quick listen.

It was engaging! And fun. If you like Penny Reid, this is a "quicky". Love it!

just my kind of nice

I adored the story of this book but hearing the audio brought the story to life even more. Fiona Fisher captured Anna's personality perfectly. Stephen Dexter was perfect as brooding Luka. Here's hoping to hear more from them as this series unfolds.

Smooches

<Sigh> Is there anything that Penny Reid writes that I am going to dislike? No, the answer is an emphatic and resounding no! The only thing I can say negative about this book was that it was entirely too short! Penny's writing style is one of my favorite and I sing her praises to anyone who will listen to me. Thank you for another good one Penny. She may be kissing Tolstoy, but my kiss is for you! xoxox

Beautiful Romantic Story

This is the 3rd book by Penny Reid and I've LOVED all three! The characters are intelligent and Anna is especially insightful. My only complaint is that it's a short read ending somewhat abruptly.
