Oh, pluuuuze

Yes, I agree with previous reviews, Simon Prebble is great. However, that is all I agree with them about. The story? "ech." I wanted something light while I did some house/yard work, but that doesn't mean I don't want a worthy plot! But I guess, judging by the amount of books available on AB, that readers like Laurens.

This book has too much sex, and in scenes that last too long. And I can't believe *I* just said that! Ever heard the phrase, "Leave 'em wanting more." Well, this left me wanting it done; subtlety is sexier.

If you cut out all the sex scenes, the book would last about 2 hours. I guess if your spouse is out of town, get the book.

All About Passion: A Cynster Novel

I'm half way through and still waiting for this to get good. I've listened to Cynster novels before and they are light listening with good romance and an interesting plot..until now. Stephanie Laurens thinks there is something romantic about a man who will screw anything in a skirt without a backwards glance..until he gets married and this is no exception except there is no plot. If you are looking for a book with detailed sex and lots of nonsense in between this book is for you. I will leave work for my 30 minute commute and they are having sex and still having sex when I get home. I already know how this book will end (they are all the same and that's OK) but there is nothing happening in between. Unfortunately, the only meat in this book is his. Incidentally, how could Giles think Francesca is a gypsy when she is living in the house, wearing expensive clothes and riding the horses in the stable. Please!!! Don't waste your time.

All about sex

If you are Voyeuristic, then this is they book for you, except you are listening, with no imagination left. I personally don't enjoy, this type of book especially as I feel that if there was ten pages of plot I would be surprised. As I started to fast forward, with words not again, I realised how bored I had become. The diluted story line is he meets two cousins one he decides to wed In a cold blooded marriage, because he saw his father died and never wants to love again!!!! The other he lusts for and plan to make his mistresses. As the cousin have similar names, it isn't until the last minute he realises his mistake and knows she also knows the truth. It started off badly and never drags it self out of the sexual pit. Sad as I enjoyed his character in other books, not worth buying let alone the time listening to it.
