I should have paid heed to the reviewers who warned about the bad performance of this book, instead, I was swayed by the reviews which were complimentary of the performance and the positive reviews of the story. I am normally quite a tolerant listener and accepting of various performance styles but this performance had no redeeming features. Listening to this performance was like listening to nails being continuously scraped along a blackboard. I only persevered after I found that increasing the speed made listening tolerable; that's the only way that I could finish the story. Otherwise the story and characters were quite entertaining once you found a way around their mangled voices. The performer manages to sound both monotonic and overly expressive by spitting out and gargling words without respect to proper phrasing, timing or expression. The inventive or unorthodox stress on the wrong syllables in the words in the text is astounding.
Sorry if that sounds harsh but such is the frustration that this performance evoked in me.

This book had so much potential. I really liked the storyline and the characters. I think it was well written and could have been up there with Olivia Cunning but the narrator Crystal Sershen killed it. She draws out all the endings in her words and her male voices sounded painful not sexy. If this book was narrated by another author, it would have been much better. I would listen to this author again as long as the narrator is changed. Rebecca was funny and quirky and I loved her cleaning OCD moments. Carter is funny and immature and Kent is stern and authoritative. I think the chemistry was great and the plot twists with ex-lovers was awesome. This was not just about a rocker on tour and that made for interesting reading. I don’t want to give any storyline away but the scene with Jason in the hotel was great and so deserved. LMAO. Please, Please, Please get another narrator. Happy I took the chance because the story was good.

What about Crystal Sershen’s performance did you like?
The narrator - fantastic, sometimes you could forget it was the same person.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Lonely Kings - royalty like you've never known before.
That is the tame version. You could go raunchy but well it may get x rated .
