Setting: England 1822
Narration was average. I wasn't immersed in the story, nor was I kicked out of it by mispronunciation or overly melodramatic delivery.
The premise of this is not new, but the author freely admits that it is a take on the switched personalities trope in a historical setting. The characters had definite personalities, and they definitely set off sparks in their dealings with one another. Their chosen lifestyles are so diverse, you have to wonder how they functioned. The author didn't take the opportunity to give humor to some of the situations except for Lady Corinna's confusion over what to do with a man's morning erection. However, the mutual hatred went too far and too deep. You have to wonder how they could ever forgive some of the things they said and did. But it does make the conciliation more dramatic in a way. I just wish the story had been tightened up and shorter.
"What a pleasant surprise!"
This is the first Jennifer Ashe book I read and I really enjoyed it! The argument scenes between the hero and heroin are really funny. I was a bit apprehensive at first with the narrator but then as I got used to her style,
I enjoyed it.
"This is a brilliant page turner!"
The story was new and refreshing, and I'm, now, happily a new fan of Katherine Ashe. This was one of those kind of stories that make you laugh, and cry, and fall in love. I think the characters were delightful. Isn't it great when you try a book by an author you haven't read, and they turn out to be wonderful?
The narrator was enjoyable to listen to, and I would listen, happily, to other books narrated by her.
"Interesting twist to a story"
Yes it was a fun story
No one in particular
When he woke up in her bed for the first time
Seeing things from a different perspective and overcoming pre conceived ideas
"Fun Story! Awful Narration!"
This was a fun story and would have been great had the narrator been better. The narrator was awful. The men sounded like old crotchety, scratchy voiced men. It was almost unbearable to listen to her do the hero's voice.
The story itself was good, I liked the Freaky Friday twist. There was lots of good dialogue. Sexual tension and one well written sex scene.
A strong hero and heroine. The Heroine was not whiny, shy and whimpering, which is a plus in book. The hero was strong and handsome (but did not sound that way due to the awful narration)
Narrator Veida Dehmlow should practice doing men's voices or don't narrate.
"OK story, but very bad narration"
The story was fine however the narrator just killed it for me.
Her male voices sounded like 70 year old men
Terrible. Kills the atmosphere of romance at the core.
Unlike other books by other authors I have listened to (and there great many) in this one I did not relate to any one single character. Could be the narration...
There are great many excellent narrators. I think a male voice would have worked well for this book.
Can not imagine it
This book was so much fun! There was room for more humor.... a lot of room.... but it didn't need to go there. For as much fun as it contained it was also serious without ever being too serious. I loved the tale, the characters and the telling.
NARRATOR: Excellent as well....
HEAT FACTOR: Steamy!!!!
CREDITWORTHY?: oh yes.
"A switch shakes things up..."
This is a good story. Never seen a switch in a historical romance.
I liked him. He was like the little boy that teased the little girl because he liked her.
I liked her. She was like the little girl teased by the boy but secretly likes him.
As adults they were locked in negative banter until the switch. That forces them to see things from the others perspective.
The narrator was just okay.
