Should have read instead of listened

It really was a good story line, and I usually love male readers but this one........Listen I had to force myself to keep going. I needed more emotion. You can't tell the difference from female and male part; only when he states she said or makes reference to the heroine. It was bad ya'll.

Narrator Ruined It

I'm happy this book was part of the romance package or I would have been returning the book asking for my credit back. The narration ruined it for me to where I just couldn't finish. And I tried...

Smart and Sassy

I line the simplicity of Sweet Persuasions. Selena's sassiness was fitting for Xaviers tough personality.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend it. It had a great storyline and sexual storyline. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. The couple was great together. I would liked to have heard more about how their families liked each of them and his sister reaction to know she was the lady in her brother's life and how her brothers liked him. I would like to know how her Grandma liked him and his mother liked her.

Pretty good

The story and descriptions of the love scenes were really good, however the ending is less to be desired.

Another family to get into.

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

Yes, the "X" man is a wonderful person

What did you like best about this story?

The way that the two of them interacted with each other. You could tell right away they were into each other from the start

Have you listened to any of Corey Allen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When he gave her his car and then went to sleep. That's what I call true TRUST.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen to more of the Eaton Family tree.

Nice Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Sweet Persuasions to be better than the print version?

I've only listened to the audio book.

What other book might you compare Sweet Persuasions to and why?

Not quite sure.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I really wished it would have been a male voice for the leading male and a female for the leading female character.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was emotionally tied. I loved the story.

Any additional comments?

I wished the story was longer for Xavier and Selena and I wasn't so keen on what seems like to me an abrupt ending,however, I have the feeling that this will lead into another book featuring Kenyon and Mia.
