(I received an Audible credit so that I could listen to the book and give it an honest review)
So... I loved the story - if you've been reading my reviews lately, you'll notice that I have quite the thing for damaged characters (because aren't we all damaged in our own ways?) and this book featured two beautifully damaged characters. It's hard to say how so without giving away spoilers, but I fell hard for Inez -her strength, her sass, and her courage. And while Sven was quite the a$$hole to start, once we got to know more about him, it was totally understandable. I really appreciated that they didn't just jump into bed with each other, it made it that much more gratifying when it actually happened.
As far as the narration, hmmm.... I thought the voice talent did a good job with giving each character a distinct accent and voice, but I found her actual accent (the one used for the narration) to be slightly awkward and indiscernible. I actually chose to listen to it at 1.25x speed as opposed to regular speed and that helped. But I really did enjoy the story itself and listened to it twice!

What did you like best about Closer? What did you like least?
The narrator sounds just like a robot - I couldn't even make it out of the first chapter. I tried changing the speed but it didn't help. Very disappointing because I couldn't stand to listen long enough to be able to give a true rating of the story line.
