"Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

The book was entertaining and well told, however, I missed the actual story....and an actual ending.

Without wanting to spoil the story for anyone who reads this....here is the main story: Heroine meets hero, they feel attracted to eachother and they go at it like rabbits for the next 10 hours until the book ends.
There are no highlights and no suspense and really no development of the characters...she is as insecure and he is as oblivious in the last scene as at the beginning of the book.
The ending does not solve any issues expressed during the book. It doesn't end with a highlight (such as a proposal or a pregnancy or a solution to one of their troubled pasts), but the story just stops. The book could have gone on for another 4 hours or ended 2 hours before it did...it would not have made a difference to the plot.

There was some potential for a plot in the book, however, the conflicts that are touched in the book, never get resolved. One never finds out what exactly happened to Gideon in his past and how he can overcome it. Also the reader never learns if Cary ever finds true love with Tray or not.

I personally was disappointed by the content and the story...however, the narrator does a pretty good job and the scenes are very well told...however, even in a romance novel, I would prefer it if the author would build up some tension and slowly lead towards a romantic scene, rather than just throw the sex scenes at the readers without any warning. Appart from the fact that obsessive possessive behaviour is not only tolerated, but actually promoted in this book (which I find disturbing), the sex scenes could not have been more blunt or repelling. I feel the author could have done much better...she does have potential.

Nachdem ich alle verfügbaren Hörbücher von Susan Elisabeth Phillips verschlungen habe, dachte ich, diese Autorin wäre ein potienzieller Nachfolger.

Leider ist das nicht der Fall - ich bin von dem Buch so enttäuscht, dass ich es evtl. gar nicht bis zum Ende hören werde.

Die Story ist stinklangweilig, total unrealistisch und in einigen Punkten moralisch in der heutigen Zeit unvertretbar.

ich rate jedem von diesem Buch ab und begebe mich auf die erneute Suche nach jemandem, der Susan Elisabeth Phillips das Wasser reichen kann.

Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy," the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy," the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now—along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.

The story itself is well written, funny, romantic and overall entertaining.
By giving each character a different voice and dialect the extreemly talented narrator Shannon Cochran is able to take it up a notch and make this producion simply brilliant!

This is the second Nora Roberts audio book that I have listened to and that I find is kind of a disappointment. The narrator almost put me to sleep. The story is ok, I guess, but I've seen better.
Sorry, Nora, I enjoy your books but you just don't have a good hand when it comes to picking your narrators. I am afraid I need to switch to a different author for audio books in the future.

while the story itself was quite nice to listen to, the audio quality was rather poor. It felt like the narrator had recorded the book at home with an old microphone and cassette recorder. Also the Irish accent took a while to get used to - my fault for not listening in to the audio sample. I probably would have chosen another book if I had known what it would sound like....
