I'm sure if you read the book it is much better, the story was good- the narrator killed it for me, such a shame I have over 80 audio books and this is only the 2nd I could not finish. It's gotta be pretty bad for me to give up after paying so much for these - why aren't the narrators screened better? the female voice was so stilted. The male voice was lovely, if he'd read it all this would have been a winner.
I listened to this book SOLELY because it is narrated partially by Zachary Webber...the best voice going. It's an interesting set-up and not so vaguely reminiscent of "50"--down to the clever emails. What could have been a pretty dynamic and powerful book lost it's punch with over the top and WAY TOO MUCH eroticism that all said the same thing. And the continuing descriptions of her "4 inch Prada shoes" or his "Armani suit" or large king bed (I thought all kind beds were large) or Egyptian sheets...come ON. Enough already. I know this formula is designed to give us poor 'wimmen' a tease of the 'other side', but even I got tired of it. And if they referred to each other as the most perfect, the most beautiful, the sexiest, the most WHATEVER one more time, I thought I would hurl. And, the semi-cliff hanger ending of this book is not even addressed at the beginning of the second. yes, I am going to listen to both books just to resolve it but good lord, get on with it. Still...it IS Zachary Webber so that alone is pretty much worth listening to. It's also an interesting narration. More of a play like dialogue rather than a straight narration of boy/girl.

great story and Zachary Webber always makes any story so much more. Unfortunately it would have been better if he had narrated the entire story. Jessie Briar was not right for this story. She sounded so disconnected from the story - like she was just reading some random words on a page. ugh
