So this was my first time listening to an Audiobook. I was skeptical because I didn’t think I could listen to someone reading to me as an adult. But Emily was great. Kept me into the book. I’m still going to read the book but it was great listening while cooking and driving and doing laundry. Of course Julie Ann Walker is a fave of mine so I knew the book would be good and I wasn’t disappointed!

I can’t comment on the story for this book and it may be brilliant but I had to stop listening as the narration is appalling. It sounded as if it had been read by a computer- my 5 year old reads with more emotion. Complete waste of money.

I hate giving up on books but I've really struggled with this audio book. I've enjoyed all the others in the series, and was looking forward to this one but I've been battling with it right from the beginning.
Firstly, if you're British you'll find the accents absolutely impossible to listen to! Rip your ears out terrible. The narrator's crappy English accent wasn't so noticeable in previous stories as Christian's only appeared briefly in them but as he's the main character in this story it really stands out. The author's Britishisms are also rubbish and grating, we don't walk around saying things like "blimey"!
Then there's the weak storyline. The romance between Christian and Emily feels forced and like the author had run out of characters to put together.
No idea what happens in the end as I've tried 3 times to listen to this audiobook in the hope the story would get better, but it didn't and I can't bear to listen any more.
