I will definitely read another book by this author. The characters were likable; I appreciated the humor. 4 star in its genre.
Would you listen to Pretty Face again? Why?
I'd listen to this book again, because the performance was so, so good. I'd want to soak it all in once more.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The way the heroine, Lily, was so prejudiced against because of her sexy voice and beautiful appearance was fascinating. You'd think that would only help one in an acting career, but it hurt her aspirations to act on the stage. The least interesting bits were the sex scenes, unfortunately.
What does Morag Sims bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Morag Sims perfectly captured Lily's voice — high, breathy, sexy... and intelligent. It was masterful. It was wonderful to hear her words out loud, since voice is such an important part of the story.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
No part "moved" me in the truest sense of the word, but I loved the moments where people realized how wrong they'd been to judge Lily before getting to know her.
Any additional comments?
I truly wish the author had included more information about the play at the center of the story. I also wish Lily's first public stage performance, with all of the emotion behind it, had been more detailed.
Pretty Face has earned a place among my all-time favourite books. Having read it on Kindle, I couldn’t wait for the audiobook, and I wasn’t disappointed. The narration is exceptional, doing justice to an incredibly well-written contemporary romance, full of charm, wit, and beautifully drawn characters. It just ticks all the boxes for me, and Lucy Parker is now on my auto-buy list.
