♥ ♥ ♥ This is the first audio book I have listened to, that I have not read previously. I had read a few reviews on it and was expecting some silliness - which I got and didn't mind. There were some chuckles as well. Charlie (Charlotte) and Beth were good characters. I liked how they switched often and the resulting confusion for poor Radcliff was amusing.
I do agree with one reviewer that when the switch was revealed to Radcliff, he should have caught on a bit sooner in that conversation. He's a bit of a stuffed shirt in my opinion and even though he supposedly loosens up.. by the end he seems to get worse.
The downside for me was when I thought the story was fairly all tied up and at that point I thought it would be a 4 heart review. It kept going.. and everything after that point seemed to be added to just draw out the story, and it just went downhill for me. I was losing interest fast. Personally, I felt the book could have been done without this part.
The reading by Fiona Hardingham was good. Though at times she sounded as though she had a bored tone to her voice. Her accents were good and I felt pulled into the story.
When they first met Lord Jeremy William Radcliffe, Charlie and her twin sister, Elizabeth were escaping from their uncle-taking turns acting the young gentleman to avoid detection. But Charlie couldn’t help falling head over heels-and out of a window-for the handsome lord. Of course, that was only the beginning; Lord Radcliffe insisted on showing “him” and her lovely sister to London.
But how could he do that? With every touch, Radcliffe seemed unknowingly to incite indecent desires in Charlie, and his fraternal intent was certain to land her in a fine mess. Though it was a great game to play a boy, there was more fun in being female. And after one brush of his fiery lips when her guise was gone, Charlie swore to be nothing but his fiery woman forevermore.
