A bit conflicted
I love Joe Arden, he's hands down my favorite male narrator. But this one was a bit of a struggle. There were pros and cons to it, I guess. I ended up starting and stopping it often.
Pros: The story was interesting enough, it started off better than it finished. I thought it would be a bit more gritty than it ended up being.
Cons: The woman read in a southern accent the entire time, and it was admittedly a bit distracting at first. She had a nice, soothing narration voice, and you get accustomed to the accent, just expect it. However, she had a TERRIBLE male voice. It was awful. Also, she was very breathy, when I had headphones on I could hear every inhale. I counted all of her breaths instead of listening. Yikes.
The story starts out strong, but starts to pander a bit. Insta-attraction though the author tries to temper it somewhat with the plot, but it's there. I don't want to give any plot spoilers, so I won't give out specifics. The heroine is just a little wishy-washy to me, and I prefer strong female leads when given the option :-) She ended up just being dragged along for the ride.
