What did you love best about Executive Seduction?
Jennifer Probst is well known for her stories of a girl needing money, finding a rich sexy guy and falling in love with him, not his money. I give her credit for her ability to show the true feelings of love. But where this books fails is that it's a republish with tiny updates of a story she wrote years ago only she forgot to update a few parts of the book so it mixes parts of the story up - from million dollar deal to a billion dollar deal. If she was going to do an update she should have had better editing to make sure she didn't miss anything.<br/><br/>Still it was an enjoyable story, minus the narration.<br/><br/>
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Johnstonbrown?
Oh wow I hate to be mean but this book was pretty much ruined by the narration. I'm just floored it got approved. The problem is two fold. First she sounds far older than the main female character should be, the narrator sounds like she may be in her late 50s or 60s but even worse is the way she over-pronoucnes words and puts extra emphasis on every T. Do you realize how many times a word has a T sounding in it, in any given book?<br/><br/>It's bad. Really really bad and time and again you find yourself cringing listening to the narrator speak.<br/>
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The story was good, not the best ever considering it was written like 10 or 15 years ago and only parts of it were updated but yeah, I would say it was a story I was interested in finding out how it ended.
Any additional comments?
This is a comment not only for this author but all of them ... listen to your book. Really listen and if the narrator is horrible, have some backbone already and be honest. Get a new one. This book was completely ruined by bad narration.<br/><br/>

Would you try another book from Jennifer Probst and/or Anne Johnstonbrown?
Jennifer yes. Anne no
What didn’t you like about Anne Johnstonbrown’s performance?
The over-pronunciation and over-acting of every word ruined a story that could have been entertaining.
Did Executive Seduction inspire you to do anything?
Listen to the previews of a narrator I have not yet heard

This is a romance novel not a technical how to! She almost ruined the book for me. The story was good though.

The narrator in this book made it a difficult read, I can see that she would be better suited reading a historical novel or something like that. This story was pretty good, our normal sexy billionaire and hot woman! Story line was standard and pretty good, but not the best. I LOVE LOVE Jennifer Probst and I know this is her baby, her first book. I'm glad she went through it and updated it, but the writing is still her first book. It isn't bad at all, it was good, but not as good as her newer stuff. The major issue here is the narrator.
Yes, I enjoyed it, yes, I am glad I listed, no I probably won't listen to this one again.

She enunciated way too much

What disappointed you about Executive Seduction?
I had to stop listening after 53 minutes. The story was not lacking, I really could not get over the narrator's robotic, monotone voice.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer Probst again?
I have read and listened to JP many times, and this is the first bad review I have ever made about her.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
WHO TALKS LIKE THAT??? I thought the book was being read by a computer at one point. <br/>Ms. Probst should sue the narrator for killing her book!
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Executive Seduction?
Since I only listened to 53 minutes?........... I would have cut the last 52 of them!
Any additional comments?
Sorry Ms. Probst. If I were you I would ask to read your own stories from now on, or at least have a say in who performs them!

A lighthearted sexy contemporary romance about rich, handsome, ruthless CEO Logan being talked into hiring Chandler a beautiful Yoga Instructor for the good of his employees well-being which in turn will help his business… and eventually him.
Yes it's predictable and pretty unrealistic but hey it's the journey to the HEA that we all love so much and they had a few pitfalls along the way but there was a nice build-up to some sexy times and a tender romance after trust and faith in each other was finally won.
Worth a credit? Mmmmm a difficult one and depends what you want from a listen - it's an easy-going, enjoyable, light listen so, if you're in the mood for one of those, then YES this ticks the boxes but it's also a bit forgettable and all too perfect so I would probably put it in your Wish List and wait for a sale.

I really like jennifer probst but this just didn't check all my boxes. Some but not all. It was a great romance about a powerful CEO and his new business partner. Just what the blurp
Narration was good too but it was boring a bit. I skipped 3/4ths of the book to get to end.
Maybe a sale book.

I wish this story was a bit longer, or that it had more meat but it did check many of my boxes. A very strong leading lady who is a yoga teacher, but don't think for a minute she is flaky. A strong domineering male lead, but don't think for a minute he is so set in his ways a good woman can't change him.
I liked that all the characters remained true to form. They didn't change who they were in chapter one to further the story. While there was some miscommunication between the H and h I don't think it was unreasonable or off the wall drama for the sake of drama.
Good steam scenes, really liked the narrator, all in all maybe a credit or a sale but not a buy, it was just too short.
The narrators over annunciation of a lot of the words was a little unrealistic and annoying. Other than that I enjoyed the story.
