I didn't hate this book. It was an ok read, but the story itself was lacking in several areas. While there is plenty of sexual tension (and I mean plenty) between our heroine and no fewer than 3 different men, and while this sexual tension is described in explicit detail, there's very little actual sex in this book, even between the hero and heroine. Also, there seems to be MORE sexual tension between the heroine and the first "villain" than there is between her and the hero. Indeed, it seems most of the first half of the book is dedicated to this guy. The heroine herself, well, she was a bit too pretty, too nice, too caring, too perfect for my taste. Then, in the epilogue, the author makes a feeble and unsuccessful attempt to make Lily look tougher, but the attempt fell flat. By that time, you're a bit over the girl.
Aside from all that, the book just didn't seem paced right. Because of the way the book was set up, it seemed I barely got to know the hero.
I will give one warning. Some of the situations in the book border closely on rape. If those sort of situations are upsetting to you, I wouldn't get this book.
On the other hand, I thought the narrator did a fine job with his southern accents, and I loved his clipped British accent when he was reading the narration. This contrast seemed to help me to better keep track of conversation.
The world and the premise behind the book aren't bad either, and I will read at least one more book in this series because I'm hoping with a different heroine and more exposure to reoccurring characters, things will smooth out.

The story was good and solid but I had to try three different times to get through the narrator's accent. Please don't get me wrong - he's a good narrator but his own British or Australian (I really couldn't tell WHAT his accent was) totally destroyed the LA accents needed for this book. And the voice he used for Tabatha had me flashing back to my youth and Saturday mornings with H R Pufnstuf. Overall, even though I enjoyed the story I won't purchase any more in the series unless they change the narrator. I will try a more appropriate book using this guy though.
