this is the worst audible I have ever heard

Dear Audible,
Don't you think you ought to label a "book" like The Guardian as porn or porn light. You can't imagine my surprise as I was driving down Los Angeles' 405 freeway and this book took a turn from what your publisher's blurb described as a young girl's parents' die and she is left to start a new life with a guardian. ....not a word about the hugely sexual content of this
"bodess ripper". The writing, the performances and the lack of plot add up to the worst audible book I've ever heard. I feel sorry for these actors having to grunt, groan and simulate sex sounds in a studio with technicians all around. Believe me, I'm not a prude in any way but, come on...don't you think the description should warn listeners about content that is so corny and horny.

The Guardian

I am new to audiobooks but I have read books by Alice Raine was curious to see how the author did writing short stories.
As usual Alice Raine has not disappointed. I enjoyed the story but I do prefer reading myself so I would love to see it in print
