As I finished the book, I was left with the thought that this book had the potential to be extraordinary, but instead it was just....normal. The first 4 hours or 9 chapters kind of dragged and there was actually very little interaction between the two main characters which was a bit annoying. Perhaps this is because the author was setting the stage for a series. I think the biggest problem was that the characters kept talking about their chemistry but I didn't really "feel" the chemistry. The author meant there to be a lot of sexual tension between the characters, but I didn't really get a solid feeling for this and my stomach never clenched with angst or suspense or hope or anything like in other books similar to this one. I think the book had amazing potential, but it just didn't follow through all that well. The narration was a bit odd also. I'm not quite sure how because both narrators were good -- I just didn't feel any emotion from them.

I have enjoyed several of Ella James's books, but I found this one completely bizarre -- almost as if I started listening in the middle. The plot was fractured and confusing, and Jim Steel's voice was all wrong for the story. I found his accent grating and his faux-deep-gravely-voice very unconvincing. He also sounds like he's about 100 (a little creepy in a romantic lead). Perhaps I would have more success reading it, but the story line was so flat I'm not tempted to try.
