Redundantly Blond

I have only listened to 2 hours of this book but I thought some of you might like to know why I won't be able to finish:
I was looking for an Anne Stuart-esque romantic thriller and so I was disappointed by this very traditional 'Foolish blond meets taller and wiser he-male' story. In general I dislike hearing stories of women I wouldn't have the patience to talk to were we to actually meet. The hero may have potential but I can't stick around to watch him lower his standards with such a big baby, so I can't say for sure.
But perhaps the author is targeting a more 'light-brained' readership as she frequently repeats herself, letting us know a good three or four times (for example) that the hero is not usually attracted to weak-minded/feeble-bodied women such as the heroine but is somehow drawn to her against his will.
I had no trouble resisting her or anthing else about the audio program. I wish you better luck.

A Crushing DIsappointment

I was excited to find that Audible carried this audiobook. After having read excerpts from the other books in this series, I looked forward to read this story. Disappointment doesn't describe how I felt after reading it. I can't understand how far off the mark, how far below expectations this book fell. Victoria, the female protagonist, was an embarrassment. When I wasn't feeling disgusted by her behavior, I was incredulous that she could say some of the things she'd said; she fluctuated between being whiny and brainless. How Mark, the male lead, could be attracted to such a woman is beyond me!
