Yup torture and sex, but not really at the same time. The torture descriptions were raw and unnecessarily descriptive unless you are into pain and torture. The sex scenes were hot and steamy worthy of a hot romance novel if you are into that. The main characters were predictable: a drop dead gorgeous blond Amazon history professor who needs lessons in love and trust and the movie handsome, dark, tall, artistic and sensitive policeman who might well provide the needed lessons. All of this while in hot pursuit of a tortured psychopath that hides not so well in plain sight. Although it was very easy to guess who was who early on, there were vain attempts to misdirect the reader from guessing the identity and the motives of the evil doer. I think this book could be from a new genre i.e. "noir romance"? with enough appeal for those who prefer not to make a choice between noir police stories and hot romance novels. The rating for hot romance is 3 if you skip all the torture scenes.
I got through 3 hours and my heart was pounding. I had to stop for awhile. I will finish it at some point. The torture scenes were too realistic. Would have been better if they were described after-the-fact. Hard to believe a woman wrote this!
Addicted to Audible - I listen to at least three books a month while I'm out walking. I'm a motivational speaker based in North Carolina.
I wish I could give this no stars.
I had to stop listening to this it was so awful. When the hardened cop turned into a babbling idiot at the first sight of our ridiculous heroine in her rainbow gloves and camo jacket I wanted to be ill. So very, very, very bad. Don't waste your time or your money.
Everybody in this book is either terribly good or extremely evil. No nuances--everybody remains drawn entirely on the surface.
The sex scenes are horribly embarrasing and awkward. People don't suddenly "turn all hot" or "gasp with pleasure."
The reading was so childish and annoying, it is hard to rate the story. We don't need
every voice to be unique, reader. Remember it was written as a novel, not a play.
Yes, if it is narrated by another reader.
Not unless she has had a drastic change in style.
An inconsistent mess. I could be a good story line, but the details were just non-sense. The heroin rides a 1974 BMW motorcycle with 110hp. In 1974 the top of the line was an ugly R90S with 67hp. A tire track was found and determined to belong to a Ford F150, and the BS goes on and on....
