One of the worst books I've ever read.

What disappointed you about Jezebel?

This book is so bad, I feel duty-bound to warn other readers. The simplistic writing style and word choices seem to be directed at teenagers or young adults, but the snippets of attempted eroticism make this book inappropriate for the young adult genre. The story line is ludicrous - a woman in her 50s telling an 18 year old girl about the story of her early life replete with dramatic heartfelt exchanges between the woman and her partner, and explicit, descriptive details of the couple's sexual life. There is a twist at the end of the book but, it is a twist that will only appeal to naïve, immature readers and does not justify 9 hours of tedium.

I feel duped for believing the 4 star rating for this book. Jezebel will be the first book I have returned in 12+ years.

Stunned!

This is one of those books that carries you on a roller coaster ride of emotions and you willingly go! I can't tell if I am more heartbroken over the fact that the book is over or the actual ending. I was so caught up in the characters lives...and now it's over. I think I need a drink.

And the saga continues

After thinking about it..I don't even know what to say about this story. It involves romance but also mystery and intrigue. It is about a young woman's family connections but also her connection to a stranger. This is just one of those books you have to read to know what is going on. What I can say is the ending left me with a lot more questions than it answered.

The narrator did a really good job in my opinion. After listening to this book I caught myself reading other books but hearing her voice. I would definitely listen to another book narrated by her.

Awful.

This book was terrible. The writing is juvenile and somewhat predictable. While I respect people who narrate books, I could barely get through listening to it. The narrator's "accents" were terrible. Just listening to it was hard enough. I don't know how many times I rolled my eyes at this novel. The twist wasn't that great either. I'm surprised by how many stars this book actually has. I returned this book. Definitely would not recommend.

Wow!!!

This book was absolutely fantastic. The author and narrator are extremely talented. I loved the unexpected twists and turns. This story has so much going for it... love, betrayal, revenge. I will definitely look for more by this author and narrator. Without giving away spoilers, I never saw the ending coming. The story flowed so well and kept me intrigued. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator or someone else.

Don’t be fooled

I got hooked because of the promise of a thrilling story with a twist ending. True, there is a twist, but everything else about this story is transparent & easy to figure out. I knew who the girl’s parents were, who the old lady was very early on. This is a terribly written story, the scenes jump around with no flow, rhyme, or reason, the dialogue is clichéd & horrendous, the plot is ridiculous, and the descriptions are trite. I cannot believe Audible charges a credit for this book. A lot of the free books are ten times better than this. The only reason I kept listening after 3 chapters was because I stupidly bought it, and because I wanted to see how much worse it could get.

Didn’t see that coming. I thought I knew where the story was going. I had part of it figured out but the twist ending left my mouth open.
