What a mastery of love, lies, deception and mystique....this is one of the best books of Sandra Brown's I have read.....actually one of the best mystery/romance novels I have read in a long time. This story is actually a book within a book and Ms. Brown has the talent to encompass 2 different and yet intricately involved stories into to 1 book. The story is of 2 rival authors that start out their careers as best friends....yet greed, jealousy, ambition and envy draw both to use the same beautiful woman to their own ends....at her expense.....fantastic read with twists and turns and a few surprises.....great love scenes that touch your heart as well as the nether-parts.
Although I have to admit, I did find myself daydreaming a little in the first couple chapters, the further I got into it, the better it was. It wasn't long before I found myself hardly able to wait to listen again to see what would happen next. Great & realistic characters, and great story plot. It kept me in suspense until the end! I would definitely recommend this book to others.
I've always liked Sandra Brown's work, but I think this one tops them all! I have to also give credit to the narrator...great voice and excellent job!
Great book. Great reading. The story has enough twists to keep you going, but doesn't get lost in trying to be too smart to follow. Fun book to listen to.
This was a great book and definitely captivated my attention. The characters, plot and the twists were great. But as others have said pretty erotic scenes! This was my first Sandra Brown and I chose it because others said it was one of her best. It made me want to hear another one of her books. It was a great summer book!
What a great book - Loved it and will keep it to replay again - Never a dull moment and the reading was great
The second part I thought was much better than the first but it kept my interest and wanting to listen everytime I had a few minues. You do not know untll near the end what actully happened or "who did it" so that was great. Will keep it and listen to it again in the near future. It was Worth my credit and I finished it in less than 7 days!!!
Right from the beginning I knew I wouldn't be able to put this one down! I had just finished Smash Cut and this one was even better! And I love Victor Slezak's narrating.
The narrator's voice for Parker, the main character, was very good. The rest of the time he was quite monotonous and couldn't do a woman's voice at all. The plot was full of inconsistencies and became increasingly unbelievable as the book continued. It was a good enough page-turner, but not a great listen overall.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, which I hate to admit, is my first Sandra Brown book. Incredible plot with many twists and turns; believable characters; and I enjoyed Victor Slezak so much that the next audible book by Brown ("Rainwater")I downloaded and am presently listening to had to be narrated by Slezak. He is excellent. This is a must read.
