Was very much looking forward to this book as the story read good but between the annoying H and H characters and aggravating voices of narrator it fell very short of my expectations!
Save your credit or your money and don't bother!
"Story was a bit silly"
Story begins with the heroine stealing the duke’s pocket watch that belonged to her father and losing her virginity in the process. She leaves his house before he gets up and so the duke has no idea of her identity until he runs into her at a ball. Immediately recognizing her as the thief who stole his watch and left his bed without a trace and irritated for all the time wasted to track her down without luck, he decides to have blackmail her by asking her to do his misdeeds. The heroin is forced to follow the duke’s commands or he threatens to tell all she stole his pocket watch.
Cute story but a bit silly how she feels obliged to do as he says. I have to admit I LOVED the twist added about the heroine’s good brother’s love life. Very unexpected
The story was sweet and could draw you in but the narrator's voice kills you. I give Ms. Larkin kudos for her effort but her voice just got on my nerves after a while.
"This was fun"
This was a most enjoyable book. Light-hearted and cute. I liked both main characters a lot.
The narration was a little too girly for my liking but, overall, this was quite good.
This was my first book by this author and I look forward to more in this series.
"UNEXPECTED BUT DELIGHTFUL"
I read the book first and I found it very intriguing, listening to it gives it a different perspective especially when the narrator puts voices to the characters.
Was a great story, totally not what I was expecting which is what I like about books and makes it even better in the audio version when the story is narrated well (like it was done here).
I hope the other book in the series is in done in audio as well.
