Everybody sucks. The female lead was oblivious to anyone's feelings but her own most of the time and then she accused and berated the male lead for doing the same thing. she lost her temper at every single thing the guy did and stayed mad at him even when it was clear it was just a cultural misunderstanding. She's so hung up on her own interpretations on other cultures that she just takes her own views of different situations and decides that she's right even when she's wrong, then she gets mad when proven otherwise. She never asks for clarification on things and just basically goes around yelling the entire book.
At the same time, the male lead doesn't bother even trying to explain anything to her until halfway through the book and even then he leaves important details out. He's full of himself and believes that she should just automatically understand his culture. Whenever she doesn't understand, he just assumes she's too primitive to comprehend. He's sneaky and conniving in his dealings with her and basically expects her to eventually just give in and give her everything.
Overall it's just very frustrating to listen to. I kind of wanted to just smack them both. Both very unlikable characters.
Female lead is very infuriating; I couldn’t keep reading.
This one was ok but I liked the first one better. I think it had something to do with the fact that these are new characters from the ones we met in the first book and we don't actually see them until towards the end of the book. This story was also slow starting.. it took awhile to get into the plot. Hopefully the next one the series will be much better.
Loved it!! This is one of those books that I would buy to listen to over and over. I learned a new fact about the Mona Lisa and laughed out loud more times then I could count. The narration is great. Fantastic storyline! A woman stolen from earth is taken as a slave, then given as a gift. She is put in 'temporary housing' until the case against the slavers are brought to trial, but finds that she has been taken as a wife instead. It catches your attention from start to finish.
the book is good but has about 3 hours too much filler in my opinion
