Not as good as usual

First off, I hope Siiri Scott as a narrator is a one off thing because I found her character’s voices to be quite grating. She put too much whine into the voices whenever the characters were angry or upset and it made them sound like young teenagers. I also thought her male voices in general just didn’t work.

Plot wise, it started out good. She laid the scene well and the characters interacted in a believable way. But the middle/end dragged on and I struggled to stay invested in the characters. It’s a good thing this wasn’t my first book by Jamie Beck- otherwise I doubt I would have listened to any of her other stories.

Cooking up a storm

A typical Jamie Beck romance . Good and slightly different story line that was always moving forward with no "filling in" from the side. Written with clever dialogue, which always puts her books on a higher level. For the true romantics this is a book not to be missed .

Good story/Bad narration

I love Jamie Beck books and the story was good. But the narrator was almost unbearable. Annoyingly dramatic narration.

Worst narration ever

The narration made this seem like a cheesy romance novel. It was just so bad. Everytime she spoke a male's line it was done in monotone. I had a hard time focusing on the story because I was so annoyed by the cheap narration.. The plot was very predictable.
