Love to read all things romance and once in a while take a walk on the wild side and read something else.

What made the experience of listening to His Trophy Wife the most enjoyable?
There were times that I wished I were more than a spectator watching the scenes go by. The author was great in creating them so that the reader can feel as if they are included in the world she has created.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Morganna has to be my favorite character. You think she is a compliant wife but then she surprises you. I loved when she gets frustrated with a gentleman that seems to expect (implied) them to do some of his work for him - especially when a mystery is afoot.
Which scene was your favorite?
I don't know that it's one particular scene but my favorite part is when Morganna is creating her miniatures. We hear that people are enamored by what she has done and I find myself wanting to see what makes them so special.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There came a point when the mystery is solved that you have to get angry at the character that put our two main characters through a lot of pain. But then if it weren't for him, they probably wouldn't realize that they belong together.
Any additional comments?
Ms. Slade does a great job at narrating this story but I found it hard to picture her voice as Morganna. It felt more like my aunt was reading me the story than a beautiful sexy woman. She didn't try to change her voice too much in order to sound like Sloan which was a good thing. Her voice was great for Morganna's mother and would have actually loved to hear more of her. The only downside to the story was that I had a hard time picturing these two as a couple. I had no trouble seeing them as totally opposite from the other but to think of them as a couple was just not happening. This may be one of those stories where I need to use Whispersync. In the end, for me, the audio didn't live up to the blurb. I was expecting more.
I voluntarily reviewed an audio version of this book.
