Hard to listen to

I've actually read this book before. I had a particular picture in my head of the characters, how they looked, how they should sound. The narrator seemed to try too hard with the accents. The women's accents were too exaggerated, making it hard to envision them as beautiful and seductive. Zeke's accent was more foreign than Texan or one that would be recognized as being from New Orleans (no sex appeal).The narrator should have just used normal voices for the characters. Her impression of those accents diminished the listening experience .

Pleasant Story

Have to admit that I enjoy the male narrators MUCH MORE than the female ones. And the accents used in this story were really NOT on point. There is something that sounds weird when a woman tries to perform a hot steamy male voice. It just doesn't really work.

Nevertheless... this one was a pleasant enough story.

Great bool narrated by Reba Macintyre

There is not a book that Brenda Jackson writes that I don’t love and own. This is my first time listening to one of here books and I was a bit disappointed with the narrator. She sounds like the country singer Reba Macintyre. Story takes place in Texas so I get the county accent but I was thrown the whole book. I finished cause I ain’t no quitter.

Decent story. Terrible narrator.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator's voice.

How could the performance have been better?

The country twang made it difficult to enjoy the story.

Any additional comments?

I may have enjoyed the story more with a different narrator.

NEEDS DIFFERENT NARRATOR

I honestly could not finish listening to this. First, the narrator reading the male part reminded me of a little kid trying to speak like a rough, tough cowboy. But when she forgot what voice she was supposed to be using in the middle of the dialogue, I was finished. I like Brenda Jackson but her choice of narrators can use some improvement.

Good story but could have been better

The story line was good but could have been better. Little things like something was suppose to happen in 3 days but it was the next day. The narrator does not do male voices well at all. That was painful. Also the story seemed rushed. They meet they sleep together and are in love wanting to spend their lives together in a week. Oh yeah, but they both have serious issues. Mrs. Jackson has done better.

Temptation review

Why do all of the characters have a country twang? Not having the voices to match the characters takes away from the story.

love the Story

I loved the story but didn't care for the Narrator's voice when switching between characters.
