What disappointed you about On My Knees?
Boring and predictable. The story itself reads as if the author had a 'mad lib' style format. Fill in name of girl, name of guy, guys chases girl, girl denies her feeling, girl makes an ass out of herself, guy fumbles along trying to fix her. Its the same story we have heard over and over again.
Would you ever listen to anything by Meredith Wild again?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Mack and William Munt ?
Anyone except William Munt. He sounds EXACLTLY like the narrator from the movie A Christmas Story. Which would normally be endearing, but the age difference between the character (25ish) and William's voice (70ish) is very disturbing. Not to mention over performed, he is so dramatic and over the top its like listening to your grandpa exaggerate a children's book. Worst still is hearing this geriatric voice say words like 'c*ock' and 'pu*ssy' YUCK! I felt like I needed a shower after..... Just horrible!
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from On My Knees?
All of them, total crap.

This story had a good beginning and went downhill from there. It was difficult to connect with Maya's anguish when for most of the book you just get vague references to a poor childhood and a strained relationship with her mother. Then about halfway through a grandmother comes into the picture -- another relationship that wasn't fully developed. For two people that were supposed to be madly in love and had a strong connection, they didn't seem to know much about each other. This could have been a better book if the characters were explored on a deeper level.
The narrators were marginal at best. Jennifer Mack had a strong lisp that I found distracting at times.
I got this audio book at a discounted price and I'm not sure I would pay for it in hindsight. I think I am going to skip the rest of the series.
