I love this story, but hated the book.
I have always loved the story of Scrooge. I enjoy the movie/play versions of the story--watching the various versions is one of the handful of things I enjoy about this time of year. Having finally read the book a few years ago, I was disappointed. I did not like the written version of the story and I'm not sure why. Perhaps it is because some stories are best when acted? Who knows?
With Sir Patrick Stewart as a narrator, I couldn't say no to giving the the book version another try. The story comes to life again in this version and I definitely enjoyed it. It is abridged, but the book isn't very long to being with, so I don't know that it makes much difference in the grand scheme. Maybe one day I will give the written version another read, but for now I'll stick to the movies and this narration.
Phew. I love it when a favorite author steps out of their comfort zone and throws some erotic hotness in your lap. This was tasty.
Gaaahhh...three different scenarios and equally enjoyable. While I enjoyed the story of the first two more than the third, the POV style of the third made this one equally enjoyable.
Definitely will be rereading this one at some point. YUM!
These guys are sweet alpha marines dedicated and loving. But there was really nothing to this couple. I kept hoping we would get some flashbacks...maybe their first kiss, first sexual interaction, or something but we didn't. This pretty much all occurs 22 years after they met and I think 10 years into their sexual relationship. IDK... I just needed more. Some drama or something. But there was really nothing. And honestly I would not even call this a BDSM story at all. From what I had read before picking this up I thought it would be pretty heavy but nope. One scene in a basement and a couple of uses of "boy" and that pretty much was it.
Overall this was just not what I was hoping for as I definitely was expecting more. Again a loving couple with no dramalama so if that is what you're after tackle this one for sure. By no means is this a bad book at all. Quite sweet actually...just not what I was hoping for.
