I read this book a while back in the Kindle version. I was in the mood for this type of storyline so decided to use my credit to listen to it. The narrator would have completely ruined it for me had I not already previously read this book. She sounded more like an English professor than a teenage girl. It honestly felt like I was sitting in a college lecture hall listening to a professor read aloud. It was boring at times. I cannot really explain why this bothered me so, as I am typically a fan of good diction. I guess it just felt extremely weird to hear a teenage girl pronounce words so perfectly. It seemed to make the story less believable. I truly wish this had been performed by someone younger and a little less proper, this narrator did not do this book justice.

I've been on an angst-ridden mature YA/NA romance binge listen/read (including authors Tijans Books, Jillian Dodd, Monica Murphy and C.L. Stone---all fantastic), most of the books were pretty screwed up, but this one might take the cake.
The author constructs a situation of a girl being a victim of extreme bullying and humiliation from a boy she once loved. She's pretty much obsessed and lusting after the boy for the whole book while not quite managing to hate him. His transformation over the course of the book was somewhat believable, but not one hundred percent. Her feeling were understandable as well, if not a little hard to digest. There was a lot of heat between the characters, and I definitely was addicted from beginning to end. I loved it mostly, but the emotions were a bit uncomfortable as was her obsession with her tormentor. I'd have liked her to be a little more independent minded- to match her independent spirited actions in the book. But all in all, the blurb gives a pretty good idea of what you're in for, so if it appeals to you, you'll prolly enjoy this one too
