I don't even know where to start! This book was riveting from the very beginning. Let me state that this is not my usual genre, but wanted to try something different. I was captivated from the very first sentence and it kept me totally enthralled until the end. The story moved at an exciting pace while being detailed and descriptive. In my opinion, thats a difficult task. There was never a dull moment.
Ms. Brown brings her characters alive and keeps you envolved with every aspect. Dick Hill does an excellent job with the narration. I will not go in to the story except to say it is full of surprises and contains all the things I love in a good book. I related to characters, was romanced, a little frightened and was thoroughly able to escape.
I will absolutely purchase another of Sandra Brown's books.......like right now!
I'm so tired of listening to popular romance writers authoring "bunk". I'm hearing the same old "cookie cuttter, girl meets messed up man, they fight, he professes his love and they get married". And of course usually the woman is so bitchy what man could possibly love her? End of story? Well...it's kind of like that here, except our heroin, Schyler is nice under all her bravado and uppity background. Warning: A lot of this romance is more about sex, at least at first. But I'm not spoiling it for you. This doesn't mean it's all about sex cause' it ain't. The story has twist and turns that will keep you listening. One moment you think you gotta all figured out as to who did what...and the next you know, you don't. Sandra does such a great job of flushing out her characters, they are so interesting you may love them one moment and hate them the next. But whatever you feel while listening, as the story unfolds you will understand them. Except for a few idiots you may not want to understand. Each character comes to the table with his own story. The author makes her characters in this audio interesting and emotionally deep with back story and motivation. And again, the narration was awesome. Five stars for you, Dick Hill.
From beginning to end, this audio book kept my ears plugged into my Ipod.
Loved it. Passionate, interesting, romantic. True Sandra Brown book. Dick Hill is a great narrator, sometimes struggling with female voices but overall very good.
Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
I don't think I've ever encountered a book where I disliked just about every character in it including the hero and heroine. Schyler Crandall returns to her dysfunctional family in Heaven due to her father's ill health. In my opinion, she would have been better off staying away. The ending was rushed and unsatisfying to me; there was a great deal of building up various sub-plots, which seemed to end with a fizzle rather than a bang. I don't know whether Ms Brown just got bored with it all, or had a maximum word count to work with, but the ending was far too abrupt. Dick Hill did an admirable job of narrating this one, but that was the only bright spot in this otherwise disappointing book.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Sexy Southern Cajun
It was a sultry southern action packed listen. I got it on the $4.95 sale but this would of been worth a credit. I just loved bad boy Cash. Every woman wants a man like that and of course she wants to be the woman to tame him. Then you have the added bonus of corruption, adultery, and crime. It's my kind of listen. As far as sexual content it's very mild.This was a one sitting listen.
I gave this book 5 stars because it was a wonderful book. The narration was amazing. This was the first Sandra Brown book I had figured out right away. I love the twists in Mrs. Brown's books and am usually shocked and left with my mouth hanging open in shock, however that wasn't the case with this book. It's pretty transparent who the bad guys are. Trisha is pure evil. She is beyond nasty and Ken is spineless and pathetic. Schyler is a very likable heroine. She is strong and assertive. She's the perfect equal to Cash.
language wasn't understandable at times, and there was unitellingable mumbling. Story was good, ending was suspenseful. Good story line.
