Narrator ruined it for me

I read this book some time ago and was excited it finally made audio. The book version is better. Although Pete Ohms is getting better he is still not there yet. He ruined the book for me. If I had not already known the story I would have been totally disappointed. The books that were narrated by others are much better. I have continued to buy the books hoping they will get better. I have been so excited the Madaris series is on audible. I might try again, but at some point I will have to let it go. I can't continue to buy the series and dislike the narrator.

The story is fairly cute started out as a business venture and the two people ended up actually falling in love. The story is well develop and you do fall in love with the characters. This book has been around for a while but still a good one. Short and sweet.

One of my favorites!! Until NOW!!!

This is one of my favorite Brenda Jackson stories! I love the Madaris Family, especially Clayton! I would tell anyone to read this book and fall in love with the story and the characters.

However, I would not recommend the audio book! The narrator was not a good choice. He is not good at performing the female voices and it got creepy at times.

Definitely READ the book (in fact, read ALL of her books)! It was hard to listen to the audio book.

Wonderful story, need a new narrator

I love Brenda Jackson's books, and I've read most of them. This narrator does not do them justice.

Awful Narration

I think this story was good. However, the narrator totally ruined it for me. At some points in the story, if he soke SO slow I felt like just discontinuing altogether. I like the author but I will not listen to anymore of her books narrated by Peter Ohms.

The main character is a brat.

He could do better with his attitude. I think Coby could be a stronger character. Do we really consider this sexy that today's woman is so naive. we are now in 2020

Good

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. The narrator was ok, but I wish he had a better female voice. I liked the couple they just gelled together so good. I really like this author and hope all het books get on audible. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. I would like to hear the stories of their children growing up and getting together.

Great Story

I thought the story was well pit together. I would have liked the love scenes to have been a little bit more explicit. I also would have liked the book to end when Sterling and Colby said they loved each other. The other chapters could have been condensed into the last. However, the performance was not that great. It was hard to tell who was talking at times. When the narrator wispered, it was hard to hear what he was saying.

Truly special

Yes expectations were met. Most memorable moment occurred in the attorney's office as they built up to the reason for the meeting. At times I thought the pauses were a bit much. But I enjoyed the read overall.
