What’s with the ending?!

Really enjoyed this story but it came to such an abrupt end I was left really disappointed and annoyed, and to be quite honest feel a bit short changed. It basically compels you to buy the next book in the series to find out what on earth happens next. It has me wondering if it was meant to be one longer story originally but was split up to make more money (I see the next book is significantly shorter than this book). I found the narrator quite monotonous to start with, and had to up the speed to 1.4x to be able to listen to it. The language is, thankfully, less repetitive than some of the author’s other stories. There feels like more story than sex in this book which I felt was a bit of a change from the other stories by this author that I’ve listened to (this didn’t bother me at all but may bother others). Gave 3* for the story simply due to the ending.

Returned this book

I really tried hard to get into this book but the characters for me were so unlikable.with about 1 hour of audio to go I threw in the towel. Luckily for me I can get a refund of credit with Audible can’t get those 9 hours back though.

abrupt finish very angsty

Well I did enjoy the tense emotional rollercoaster but it was a lot and very drawn out, same old, same old, I realise this is how life plays out for some but it makes for tedious listening hence not 5 stars.
the narrator is one of our best British voices, very well done, could have captured the West country better, when someone spends their life in Helston Cornwall they do not have a middle English accent! that said she does a very sexy male voice.
4 stars across the board because there was room for improvement a very abrupt finish and I find these serialized books annoying because it should really be a whole book, I'd pay for a good story but this way I feel ripped off and I won't be the only one.

Superb

I'm really loving this author. I loved the This Man four and then Leave Me Breathless, now this Hunt pair. We'll go straight on to book 2 now. Can't wait.

outstanding

I loved the book but the audio is outstanding. the narrator had the voices perfect and made Eleanor come to life. I'd love to see this made into a movie. I love reading jem's stories but I'm growing to love the audio books even more.
