Slightly Sinful is the 5th book in the Bedwyn Saga written by Mary Balogh. This book revolves around four brothel ladies, Rachel York and Lord Alleyne Bedwyn. Rachel York finds Lord Alleyne Bedwyn completely stripped and left for dead in the woods near Waterloo. When Lord Alleyne Bedwyn wakes up Rachel and the ladies find he’s lost his memory but that doesn’t stop Lord Alleyne from being a flirt. Even while knowing he should be trying to find himself, Lord Alleyne decides to help Rachel.
Mary Balogh’s writing style is still a little hard for me to get use to. Hence why it’s been over a year since I last read or listen to one of her books. I have found in my opinion that Mary Balogh has a tendency to slow pace the first part of the book and fast pace the last part. This book it looks like she tried to make a change. The pace of this story is still a little slow in the beginning and fast at the end. Yet Mary Balogh has a good writing style and creates wonderful stories. So I look forward to more of her books in the future.
Rosalyn Landor has a great voice for audiobooks. Rosalyn Landor’s enunciation is excellent. Which helps in making each character distinctive and unique. Rosalyn does such a great job on the charterers in this book that honestly once or twice I forgot that she was the only person narrating. I really look forward to hearing more audiobooks narrated by Rosalyn Landor. In my opinion Rosalyn Landor makes a good book, great and a great book, awesome.
Tantor Audio was the production house for this audiobook. Tantor did a great job on this production. This audiobook is produced perfectly. No fluctuation in sound and at the right tempo for a great listening experience. Tantor might have been around the block longer than Dreamscape Media but still has a ways to go in my personal opinion. Yet having said that if Tantor keeps producing great books. I might have to seriously think about putting them on my list of favorite production houses.
Now for the big question. Would I recommend this book? Yes I would recommend this book but not for public listening. There are a few parts and some words that shouldn’t be heard by little ears. This book is strictly for a mature audience only. Yet keeping that in mind. Slightly Sinful by Mary Balogh is well worth a listen or read.
