Book One in Series - Will Not Continue

Any additional comments?


A Taste of You is Book One in the Epicurean Series. It is about a young food photographer, Catherine, who is swept off her feet by a handsome billionaire. Sound familiar?

Catherine is a young widow having only been married six months before her husband was killed in a car accident. Of course she blames herself for this.

Billionaire, William has a secret past as well. It was dramatic and we are only given hints about it in this book with a huge cliffhanger.

It was okay at the beginning but became repetitious and drawn out. I am not even tempted to continue the series – there was a lot of mature situations but they became repetitive, in my opinion.

The narrator was adequate but not someone I will seek out in the future.

Note: Mature themes, Strong Language

Thank you for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. If so, please select yes below his text. Thanks

Just ok

The characters are too over the top dramatic and the plot starts getting too repetitive and predictive after a while. This story is very cliche.

Not just another 50 Shades wanna be

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Has a believable story without the over the top affectations of similar books. Graphic but believable intimate encounters, wrapped in the story of a likeable character.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Ending leaves you wanting for more.......which is the idea since there's a sequel.

What does Jennifer Mack bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

One of the best female narrators in the business. Even carries you through the slow parts with compelling narration. Does the graphic scenes in an entertaining, not tawdry, way.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

The love stories about naïve young women who are swept off their feet by lonely, handsome billionaires is growing tiresome, but this story and this narrator really put an interesting twist on it.

Not very original

A young, beautiful girl moves from California with her gay best friend to start over after tragedy. She literally bumps into a gorgeous, tall, dark billionaire who immediately is obsessed with her. She says no, but she can't resist him.

If you think "boy, that sounds just like the Crossfire series", you would be right. And the similarities don't end there. Their first sexual encounter is pretty much identical. Their first date is a formal event. Her relationship with her mom/dad is pretty much the same. There are long, drawn out sex scenes with too much dirty talk that no one would ever use. There is even a military type driver. Sigh.

I couldn't get into the characters, or find any chemistry between them. It felt too forced too soon. It needed a little more romance, less sex.

total ripoff of Bared to you!!

What would have made A Taste of You better?

this book was a complete retelling of Bared to You with the character names changed.

What could Sorcha Grace have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

write something original

Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Mack’s performances?

Probably not

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Sorry, not for me

Ruined My Appetite

Boooooooooring. Even the food she was describing did not seem appealing to me. I can't believe I bothered to finish this book. I should have pushed my plate away.

Not a Fan of this book

This book didn't do anything for me. The narration could have been much better. The plot was poor and I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Excellent!

Great story, well written and performed. Honest emotion. Relatable relationships. And Hot, hot, hot and yummy romance scenes. The food scenes made my mouth water, too!

Love is a healer

Although it was typical, I really enjoyed this love story. William and Kat need each other very much. Good food.

Ugh!

What disappointed you about A Taste of You?

Everything.

Has A Taste of You turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not the ones that are well written.

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Mack’s performance?

Her male voices sound like teen age boys. They are not commanding at all, giving the male characters very little credibility.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.
