Description

It started out like any other morning on the train - until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?

Actually, he looked like a god. That was about it.

When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out. I might have picked it up. I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers. I might have held on to the mystery man's phone for days, until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.

When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me. So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first, though.

I didn't expect him to text back.

I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.

I didn't expect to fall for him - all before we even met.

Didn't live up to its potential.

I really liked the characters but the story kind of annoyed me. The story was developing nicely and all of a sudden after fending off many obstacles, one of the characters does a complete 180 and decides to leave. (Trying not to give away too much in the review). It seemed so typical and manufactured for me. I'm all for supporting some drama and angst, but this just seemed so forced. On the upside, the narrators were excellent.

Nope!

I've read a lot of romances. Couldn't finish this one. Can't take the whining and immaturity.

Good but lacking something

This is the third audiobook written by Vi Keeland that I have listen to and it was entertaining but it lacked something that her books Egomaniac and Bossman had going for them. For one thing this book lacked the wit and humor that the other two books had and some parts of the storyline had me rolling my eyes.

It just was too hard to swallow that such a jerk like Graham could turn to total mush and sappiness in less than a month of being with Soraya. Then sassy Soraya goes from playing hard to get only to crumble at the drop of a shoe to Graham's charm? It just was too easy and the fact that they barely retained the personalities that first drawn one and other and become all so saccharine. Graham was way too sharing and sentimental quickly. I like a little slow burn in my characters.

I found the story to be tender and sweet at times that made me enjoy what was going on with the two characters but then it started to lose something for me when I found that these two people who are supposed to have common sense lose it so easily to insecurities. Also, they lost a lot of their spunk that made them so charming. The story just didn't have the same complexities that I found in Vi Keeland's other books and I really did miss the humor that made me guffaw in her other writings.

All in all, the book wasn't bad and I did like it enough to be drawn in to the story and finish it. Which is saying a lot considering there were at least 3 books within a week I would start and stop because the story was just so painful to get through. Vi Keeland's books are never painful to try to read. If anything her storytelling is so good that you just get sucked in within the first two chapters and stick around for the rest of the ride. She's quickly becoming one of my favorite romance writers. Looking forward to reading and listening to more of her work.

Lots of Emotional Angst

Where does Stuck-Up Suit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The female Narrator did a good job. The male narrator wasn't bad, but he must be Irish because he couldn't seem to help adding a slight hint of an accent to the characters. Thank goodness most of the story was told from the female POV.

What did you like best about this story?

The author has an excellent writing style. The author gave plenty of build to the relationship, and plenty of depth to the main characters. Those are the things that make an exceptional story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed out Loud, and It gave me enough angst to cause me have a stomach ache

Any additional comments?

I have to say this story was the best and the worst of reads for me. The first half of the story was written with our heroine Soraya as a snarky, witty, take no crap young lady. It had plenty of laugh out loud banter lines, both of which I love to read.

The hero Graham, started out as a miserable rotten alpha-hole, but turned very quickly into a swoon worthy hero.

The second half simply had too much angst for me.

The story was very predictable, and it had my stomach rolling with some emotional triggers that I knew were coming. When Soraya turned into a TSTL heroine, I hated that! The confrontation scene with the ex-girlfriend, had me so pissed that our smartass girl turned into a weak kneed wussy!... Ugh!... The whole scene hit one my reading triggers and I was sick to my stomach. From there it just kept getting worse for me.

Female Narrator is HORRIBLE!! + Stupid Female Lead

The first thing I noticed was that the female narrator, Maxine Mitchell, has no business narrating stories. Her inflection is abominable and she reads the story like a news caster updating you on the disasters in New Orleans. Her chosen inflection makes no sense whatsoever and is repetitive for no reason. She makes it sound like Soraya is constantly confused. The purpose of inflection if to inform the listener of the mood of what is happening. Mitchell would use surprised tones to express normal daily occurrences, for example. There is absolutely NO way to gauge the mood of the story just by listening to her. I don't ever want to listen to another book narrated by her.

Joe Arden, on the other hand, seemed to know exactly what he was doing. His narration was the saving grace for this read.

About the Story

Okay, so when I started reading this book I really liked the direction it was going. It was like a 50 shades with a bit of a different spin. But when I got to the last couple chapters and Soraya was being fucking stupid, I put the book down. I am so sick of reading about people in relationship making the insanely idiotic decision to push the love of their life away, making them believe they cheated or don't love them, all because they think it's what's best for the other person. NEVER DENY A PERSON THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR THEM!!!! This is NEVER okay. 99.9% of the time you're so wrong to the degree that it actually ruins the person's life. If you love someone, don't rob them of the right to make their own life decisions.

GAAAHHHHHHH STUPID PEOPLE!!! This is NOT entertaining to read about! It just pisses me off so much that I get super stressed reading the book. I want to read to be entertained; not stressed. I actually wish Graham would have slept with Janine and Soraya would have caught them in the act. That's what Soraya's dumb ass deserved.

Don’t waste your time...

The short version: the story was interesting for about the first hour, then begins the downhill slide. The female heroine goes from badass to insecure and whiny. The male lead is an incomprehensible dual personality that does not flow. The overuse of pornographic terminology is random and seems incongruent with the story. I rarely stop listening to books without pressing to the end, even if I am unimpressed. With this book, I just couldn’t keep going.

Female Narrator Brings Down My Review

I just realized, while reading this book, that I think I really like Vi Keeland's books; but, the female narrator, M.M., brings the experience way down for me. Her dramatic inflections of her style of speaking, makes mundane sentences like "...riding the elevator." to the most exciting scenes, the same. I find myself going from exhausted from listening for any length of time, to rolling my eyes. Everything she says is poignant, dramatic, and full of introspection. It's annoying at best, and sickening at worst. She makes the character sound neurotic and ridiculous. I realized, as I've been on a Vi Keeland binge, that I consistently enjoy the books that M.M. doesn't narrate. That's a bummer. I may be ready to actually avoid this narrator, even if it means skipping certain authors'/books' because I just can't listen. A first for me. I can usually deal...

Not my favorite story/narrator was not a good fit

The poor girl meets rich man has been overdone lately. Add to that unbelievable scenarios, over the top smart mouthed female and the male narrator sounding older than the main male character I had a hard time listening to the end. It was a bargain purchase and I did listen to the end.

THIS IS A REAL GEM.... TRY NOT TO MISS IT

IMO, everything about this listen was just perfect.... the loveable characters, the build-up, the chemistry, the witty banter, their flirty texts, the Ask Ida Column, the twist and all the things in between as Soraya and Graham's love story passionately plays out. It's quirky, fresh, feisty and funny in the beginning then it goes on to add romance, sex, touching and sweet scenes, a shocking life altering twist, angst/drama with a bitchy ex, a bit of tormented heartache, a HEA and a wonderful and very funny Epilogue. And, I'm sure that it'll leave you with a smile on your face.

Dual POV's, a very addictive and enjoyable storyline, a feisty, sassy ballsy Heroine who likes to color the ends of her hair depending on her mood and a handsome rich 'tamed' Alpha Hero who's got a dirty mouth, good secondary characters and great narration too. The H/H may be very different types at the start but, through character growth and love, they compliment each other rather than conflict with one another. Vi and Penelope please keep em coming.... I'm loving every one.

Worth a credit? Yes, it effortlessly did what it was supposed to do... it drew me in and transported me to various locals where I could visualize these two well developed characters as their love story was so well described, well written and well narrated. So this is..... wait for it..... well worth the credit. ta da.

It was okay. I would not reread.

The story was winding and sometimes repetitive. I hate the narrative of a weak, insecure woman with a powerful, yet patient and understanding, man. The female character was sometimes whiny in a "I broke my own heart in an easily avoidable situation" kind of way. It made for a snore of a climax filled with self sabotage instead of actually events taking place. I skipped the second to last hour because I was bored and waiting for the story to pick up the literary pace so to speak. In some parts, there were so many feelings, but such little plot. Finally, I personally didn't like the male narrator, as his voice was a bit off to me. Yet, that's neither here nor there. Worth a credit if you have a ton to dispose of, but otherwise, ehh. The story just wasn't for me, but I'm sure it's fairly enjoyable to others.

tragically bad... even for this genre

there is literally no character development and the author really ticked off every single sexist cliche. please, for the love of god, why does a man have to be filthy rich and an ass (in this case also a stalker and control freak - the kind we warn our daughters about)? why does a woman have to be insecure and weak? don't believe the summary, she is neither sassy not strong. I read a lot of romance and unfortunately most books are pretty bad and lack an actual story. This one is worse than most. total waste of time and money.

Bisschen klischeehaft, aber süß

Jo
Es bedient so ziemlich alle Klischees, die es über Liebesromane gibt.
Gleichzeitig wurde es aber interessant und süß geschrieben.
Glücklicherweise mag ich solche Liebesschnulzen.
Und ich würde es auch weiterempfehlen.

Interesting, funny, dramatic and incredibly sexy

This book, or rather the female protagonist, definitely left an impression on me.

I know, I know, the story seems a bit overused right? Filthy rich asshole who’s got everything in life, with some tragic past under his belt. This book gives it an refreshing spin though. The characters are strong, sassy and interesting. A female protagonist, who doesn’t actually endures any crap the male protagonist throws at her but is actually able to call him out on his shit.

The story definitely has a few twists and turns, which will definitely make you suffer (in a good way, like a good romance should) only to end in a happily ever after. I can definitely recommend this book!

This was actually the first book I’ve read of these two authors. I actually really liked their other book “hate notes” too, which you should definitely check out, if you’ve liked this one. It will definitely be worth your while.

Eine schöne Liebesgeschichte

Diese schöne Liebesgeschichte wird mit den beiden Sprechern, besonders mit der exzeptionellen Maxine Mitchell zu einem Hörgenuss oberster Güte. Ich habe eigentlich dieses Hörbuch wegen ihr gekauft...Die Geschichte ist wunderbar erzählt und begeistert.
