Great cover, interesting premise but awful execution. Narrator did a decent job with very confusing and basic material.

Delightful

Loved the characters and their funny, heartfelt story of coming together. I want more from this author, this was totally worth the credit.

The novel’s repetitiveness is reflected in the fact that I forwarded it for almost 10 hours and lost nothing at all in the story. I didn’t care to spend time with all but two of the characters and them only just. Juliet Stevenson was marvellous as always but even she could not save it for me.

Everyone sounds really angry all the time which is a shame as the writing is good and the story interesting. I liked the characters.

Tessa Dare’s story was delightful but the second was repetitive and had far too much telling rather than showing. Too much time in the heads of the protagonists who weren’t interesting enough to warrant it

The second half of the book really picks up and redeems the first half, which I found quite boring

Delightful prose, wonderful banter and fabulous characters. Tessa Dare - and this series in particular - are a level above the vast majority in the genre. Wonderful.

Depressing and melodramatic. A woman is a cam girl to support herself and her abandoned blind brother (yes really). Sad, emotionally unconvincing and cliched. Two stars only for the narration.

Parts of the plot were well done but my taste in heroines doesn’t run to one who throws herself at someone and abuses them for not returning her feelings. Repeatedly and obnoxiously. She also has an inconsistent and whiny internal monologue. The cliched misunderstandings and cheap setups are cringeworthy.
