    This is by far the best Romantic Suspense I have listened to in a long time! Not since Linda Howard's MacKenzies or Elizabeth Lowell's Donavan series have I enjoyed a book so much! Love, love, love the new series. Hope that Audible gets more of this series....

  • "Excellent plot - but not a romance...."

    Overall

    I am a longtime fan of Elizabeth Lowell - she writes great suspense and this one is no exception. My only disappointment is that she has really gone more toward straight suspense and romance is definitely way down the list in her plots. While I enjoyed the story - the relationship between Mac and Emma was tepid at best and not believable. I miss the intensity Lowell captured in her earlier books - such as the Donovan series. The dynamics between family and lovers, etc. That is definitely not the case in her current books...the book is good though - if you want straight suspense with a romantic plot as an afterthought.

    When she joined St. Kilda's, the elite security consulting firm, Emma Cross thought she'd left behind the blood, the guilt, and the Tribal Wars that defined her life at the CIA. Yet trading spying for investigating yacht thefts didn't alleviate the danger. Now, the same good instincts that got her into trouble at the agency might be the one thing that will help her survive her latest case.

    This is one of my favorite Linda Howard titles...I had bought the abridged edition and hated it. Because I had read the whole book - the edited version ruined the storyline. SO glad Audible provided the WHOLE book!!! Yeah.

    As for the story, it is very interesting with a paranormal twist and great plot. I very much liked Sweeney and Richard. No games - both very straight-forward. Excellent listen on this one.

  • Infamous

    "Loved it!"

    Overall

    This was my first Suzanne Brockmann book and I thought it was great. Very different, in a good way. I loved the narrators. At first I thought each narrator would be the male/female characters but the both spoke for the same characters. As strange as that sounds it was very well done. Both narrators are excellent, the story was excellent. The story of AJ and Allison was sweet and the ending was excellent. Some of the romance novels I read the story is great but the ending stinks, too sweet and sappy...this one is perfect. I ended the book with a smile on my face. I'm now a big fan of Ms. Brockmann and have just downloaded another one of her books. Enjoy!

  • Caught in the Act (Men to Rescue)

    "Sexy"

    Overall

    Well if you like sex scenes than this book is for you! This is the first book I have read/listened to by Lori Foster and it was good - not great. It was very strange that the two main characters had never met but within 24 hours she was "taking care of him" wink..wink. Could have had a less predictable ending.

  • Shattered

    "Would give it 10 stars if I could!"

    Overall

    This is one of the best books I have listened to on audible in a long time. The story is fantastic and the chemistry between the two main characters, Scott and Lisa is amazing! Narrator did a great job too. The story grabs you and pulls you in from the beginning - I couldn't put it down!!! I loved it so much that I listened to it twice. Don't pass on this one.

  • Risky Business

    "Very Good"

    Overall

    I love Nora Roberts, however, some of her early work is not very good but this one is an exception. I really enjoyed listening to this book on my walks the story was hard to cut off sometimes. Hope you enjoy it.

    Love the character's and the story line in this book. Eric Dove did and excellent job as the narrator. Does leave you hanging and waiting for the next book. As for me I have already gone out and bought it in paperback. What can I say, couldn't wait. Makes me want to move to this small protective town in Kentucky. What a kick the towns people are. I laughed until I cried at a lot of parts, in both of the book's I've read so far. Can't wait to get my hand's on the next one done in audio. if you are looking for a lot of sex don't buy this book. But if you are looking for a good story go for it!!

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.
