    "GREAT!!!"

    I really enjoyed this Audio Book. I'm a Laurens fan, have been for years, but I would not recommend for that reason only. The characters were well fleshed out, with depth, and there's an interesting story line. I've read or listened to all of the Bastion Club series; this was one of the best. The last two are out now. I sincerely hope Audible makes them available, in UNABRIDGED format! Laurens books (& many others) are not worth the listen/read in Abridged format. It makes them just a string of empty sex with barely enough story line to hold it together. NOT what most women want or like. Distasteful!

    Story
    "Plot not bad but too much formulaic sex"

    I have read the other books in this series and this one doesn't measure up. A number of the characters promise to be of interest but they are one dimensional I found it frustrating to be tantalized by characters that I am never given the opportunity to know. The author spends way too much time describing the sex act. There should be a limit to how many pages should be devoted to tweaking, plunging and licking. Time to end this series

    "Worth it"

    I have been a long time fan of Stephanie Laurens, this book did not let me down. She once again carried me away to her wonderful world. Worth the time. #1 Fan in San Diego/Oregon

    Story
    "Another man learns about love"

    Another in the Bastion Club series of aristocratic men who worked as Crown spies until after Waterloo.
    He comes off as a real bastard in the beginning by ignoring her opinions and just steamrolling over her wishes regarding his pursuit of her for his wife. He slowly begins to show more redeemable tendencies as he catches her in a questionable situation and, when he tries to intimidate her, becomes horrified and ashamed when she responds in terror. He does stalk her to find out if she has become involved in something nefarious, but once he discovers that she has established a working safety net for endangered women and has, herself, become endangered, he begins to work with her group as a support person. Even when it becomes apparent that there is organized crime involved, he gathers the support of his colleagues to help, and each of them (even Dalziel) operates with her as the leader.
    I have yet to comprehend why the publisher chooses female narrators for this series.
    Jill Tanner is a very good narrator, but if these are books themed upon the Men of the Bastion club.....

    "Need better voices for characters"

    The male voices should sound like males not females. Character voices should vary to distinguish them from one another, otherwise great book.

    "Performance is horrible"
    What made the experience of listening to To Distraction the most enjoyable?

    The story


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jill Tanner?

    Simon Prebble


    Any additional comments?

    Jill Tanner is the most boring narrator of all! I've only bought the audiobook to follow the story. Sometimes she is the reason to not purchase the audiobook and read the paper back myself instead

    "To Distraction"

    While I enjoyed the story (when reading it myself) I did not enjoy the narration. I found it almost monotonous. The narrator never tried to alter her voice to fit the characters and often and repeatedly mispronounced words, i.e., grimaced, winding, consummate etc. Very disappointed.

    I am an avid reader and audiobook listener...but I couldn't finish this book. It was so boring. The narrator is awful as well!
