Publisher's Summary

I came from a place of dirt floors and holy scriptures. They told me the world outside was full of sin, and the first night I escape, I find out it's true. Ivan saves me, but he does more than that. He takes me. He makes me his own girl.

My conditioning runs too deep. Ivan sees what I am.

That's the thing about showing a mouse to a cat. He wants to play. And it's terrifying, even for me. Because the only thing darker than my past is his.

Author's note: Pretty When You Cry is a standalone dark romance novel. It's set in the sexy Stripped series world but can be listened to alone. Not intended for those uncomfortable with the subject matter or under 18.

Interesting storyline.

The narration of Veronica Fox as Candace is so very emotionless and wooden that becomes so damn annoying, but I didn't mind the narration of the other characters. I enjoyed the storyline, but I can't continue the series with audible because the narration is just so annoying.

Unexpected and enjoyable.

I really liked this one. I was irritated at some points with Candace for continually running away instead of pushing the issue and discussing what's going on in her head with Ivan. Her consistent need to remake herself was beautiful and somewhat strange but it worked out in the end. I think she just needed to learn that life isn't black or white, all or nothing, kinky or boring. We can be both with the right person. I did not like how things went with Ivan their first time together and the cruelty of it was horrifying. He is definitely a dark romance character. But still, I loved it not just regardless of, but partially because of some of the bad things he did while trying to hide his feelings. The narration felt a little stiff and monotone at some points mixed in with a high-pitched child-like voice that made me cringe but I think that was intentional. I think the narrator was trying to show the different pieces of this complex woman, the small child scared of a horrible leader and a woman wanting to be protected but free. I have more to say about this one, but I think I'm going to move on to the next one to see what I think of those. I love Skye Warren's writing and I have no doubt I'll enjoy those too.

Made my ears bleed-DNF

First of all the voice of Ms. Fox went from emotionless during the narration to whiney during the dialogue. The voice style was not pleasant or easy to listen to. Secondly, the story was just not good. I really don’t get the whole Daddy thing anyway. It is rare I dislike a book so much that I won’t finish it. I could not finish this book.

Loved it!

I loved the voices of the characters. I could visualize them as though they were on a movie screen.

Favorite One So Far in This Series!!

Any additional comments?

Absolutely love this one - the dynamics between this couple were so endearing - Ivan is so gruff and hard core, everyone fears him, but not his "little one". They made such a cute couple, so glad they found each other!! Loved the spankings and chemistry these two had - now time to move onto the next story in this series - great job Ms. Warren - love your books.
P.S. Never change narrators, Ms. Fox is fantastic. Highly recommend this audio!
