This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

For Ryan Swan, who'd learned never to give her trust, master illusionist Pierce Atkins was the last man to whom she should give her heart. Especially since he was planning a death-defying stunt he might not escape from. But in Pierce's enthralling presence, all Ryan's defenses seemed to vanish...like magic.

Good story but...

What made the experience of listening to This Magic Moment the most enjoyable?

That it was not abridged. You really need the full story to get the full effect.

What did you like best about this story?

Despite the fact it's an old story from the 80s you really didn't feel that so much.

What aspect of Ashley Adlon’s performance would you have changed?

This performance is ok but not the greatest. Her rendition of the male voices is irritating. She mispronounces several words. Circe is pronounced Sir-see not Cerk for example. .

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

A little work on the performance and I would give it the extra stars.

Great story, but...

This story is great, but the narrator took away from it. She mispronounced words, her male voices are annoying, and in the steamy scenes, she reminds me of across between Marilyn Monroe singing “happy birthday Mr. president” and Betty Boop with a lower voice. A different narrator would have given us the same story, but it would have been much better.

Eh, not my favorite

I normally like Nora Roberts books, but this one had so many cheesy lines and the narrator just made it worse. Not my favorite

Good story

I thought the performance was a little off at times. kind of overboard at others. the story was good, though. I love Nora Roberts.
