I’m gutted I “paid” for this book. There is no mention of Dom/Sub in the description and definitely no description off the girl being a PET...
I hate these books, but I do however, appreciate some people don’t.
My issue is there is absolutely no kind of description which lets the purchase know what kind of book they are buying.
And I’m also non appreciative of the narratives voice. She is so annoying.
I can’t even listen to more that an hour, and I’ve gave up.
Can I return this crap and get my money back?

The voice!

Why was I thinking? I should have know by the preview that I would have difficulty listening to MrHill. I just constantly felt like a child being told of by an old headmaster. I can’t listen to this. I have tried. I can’t. I may attempt another narrator at a later date.

Fab first book. Get it!

An amazing first book. Looking forward to the next one.
Did he? Didn't he?
Like a lot of books I was able to predict the ending...or was I?
The very last chapter was a let down. I expected more from the ending thus four stars. The Widow has intrigue, suspense and allure and at the same time the characters are relatable and just form in your mind with ease.
Is this due to the narrator or the writing? Both if I'm honest, but you can only carry a book so far via narrative. So I have to say the writing is superb. Again, I was not keen on the ending. But that is just my opinion.
A thoroughly enjoyable book.

Beautifully written deliciously narrated.

For all this book is seen through the eyes of a teenager, it still holds within it lessons we can learn.
Beautifully written by Sue Monk Kidd, I'm not sure it would have had the same effect had it not been deliciously narrated by Jenna Lamia. These two are the perfect match, like bread and butter or cheese and wine!
A touching tale of life in the south as the racial tension grows, and of women who are just that. Women. Sisters. Friends. Mothers. Daughters.

More on how to control your cells

This is easy listening, the authors voice is so easy to listen to.
I have done basic anatomy and physiology, so can understand the structure of cells, and was able to follow the majority of this book. There were sections though, that went right over my head - physics! But that didn't bother me, I think I may have learned a thing or two, which is a good thing.
I do wish that the book went further into how to change "the tape" or your sub conscious, that was a bit of a let down. But ultimately I now understand that I control my cells, not my DNA.
