Liked but...

This is a cute and, at times, funny story. But I like a lil sumthin' with my romance, and this story had too little. There are no sexual encounters described, though there are a few alluded to. And there are a few kisses. But I don't regret purchasing the story. It's a meaningful, cute story with a small degree of depth. You can get overwhelmed with the repetitiveness of some parts. All email addresses are read out in total along with footnote citations. That can get tiring, but it didn't detract from the story to me. But I know it will for some listeners.

Ugh, do NOT get this book

I thought it might be fun to listen to a story about a scientific experiment regarding the female orgasm and a male Dr. And see where it went from there, after all I am a scientist and really enjoyed te book the theory of attraction so this should be awesome ....*sigh*, NOPE!

I knew I was in trouble at word one, the narrator sounds like a 45 year old British noble....he is neither young, nor does he understand he is conducting experiments about sex. He is soooo clinical that this book is presented in the form of his research paper, complete with abstract and clinical footnote excerpts from other people's work. This doesn't just happen once it seems to occur often. Add that to the 45-55 year old narrator vision with a grad student and it just got really skeezy, and not in a good way.

I only got an hour into it and had to stop, too much like pulling teeth, and watching a car accident.
