A good listen
This is a good story with lots of steam. The ending was a bit anti climatic, but I enjoyed it overall.
I accidentally downloaded the audiobook, so I’m mad at myself for spending the few extra dollars. I couldn’t finish this. The story made me cringe. Sexual assault isn’t sexy. The male main character displays no redeeming qualities with the exception of apparently being irresistibly sexy. The female character just makes terrible decisions. There is very little dialogue and what there is, is repetitive. Mostly this book is two people having an internal review about how they are horny. I couldn’t care about either of them. Neither were sympathetic. Blah.
Not a fan of the story or the narrator
Wow, this book sounded great from the summary but I just can’t get into the story. It was too cut and dry with little to none of that realistic feeling. And the narrator doesn’t make me want to continue listening either, her voice is annoying and doesn’t fit the character at all.
