It jumped around to much. Very slow beginning almost didn't finish because it Was to slow.
The protagonist of this story is portrayed as an idiot. She didn't know that Matt was a spineless daddy's boy before marrying him? And a mother of a newborn being hunted by white supremacists does not forgo her opportunity to escape because she feels sorry for a man she barely knows. But the worst part of this audio book is the narration. Like so many books, you don't get to hear the narrator do the characters' voices in the sample. Her Kendall voice was awful, as were all her male voices. I almost couldn't finish the book because listening to Kendall was driving me nuts.
I recommend other Sandra Brown audio books such as Lethal, Envy and White Hot. This is a waste of a credit.
Brief moments of suspense.
If books were rated like movies and TV programs, I would give this book an R or even an X rating. I found the contents disgusting and offensive. There were descriptive and vulgar sex scenes and unimaginable violence. I also felt that the narrator's (Joyce Bean) 'voices' were abrasive and unpleasant. If I learned anything from this book, it's that I will never read or listen to a Sandra Brown book again.
I think I would have preferred just reading this one--maybe it would have been better. I wanted more suspense which I know I have read in many of Sandra Brown's (SB) books.
I say this every time I rate an audio--a narrator can make a break an audiobook. This narrator did not get that southern accent she was trying to achieve; I think she tried to hard. Also, not enough distinguishing between characters. But then I thought the story was a bit unbelievable as well--again not enough suspense. I am still going to listen to more of SB's books, but will think harder if this narrator is reading it (at least if the character needs to have a southern accent); she is fine otherwise.
I listen to audio books while working.
Holes in the story, what there was of it. The female character was unbelievable -- she has the chance to ditch the guy and doesn't in the beginning and we never know why for two more dvd's. I made it through two because there was no radio and we were driving.
She flees to the one place where someone will find her. She goes from one stupid small backwater town to another instead of going to the a city to "get lost". My husband and I talked over the book because we had to comment on the unbelievable things in this bad plot -- where were her editors? gads. Can't spoil the plot -- won't be hearing the end of it. She keeps laying her baby down and walking away from him???? Puhleeze. i want my money back!
One of the worst books I've listened to. The narrator's voice of the main character is horribly simpy. The story is mainly predictable and boring.
Loved the start, twists and turns; however, half-way through the book got very predictable. Then you had to go through the drivel. Good book if you like some mindless entertainment, for me, I enjoy Deaver's way of twisting the story until the very END. Obviously this is just my opinion, you may like it!
Yes, great story and great narrator.
I like Nora Roberts ability to write such different stories, have not ran into a "cookie cutter" problem yet.
people not distracted by the reader's voicing of characters. it seems like her voices were wrong most of the time--for example, she made the main character sound like an air-head southern woman. disconcerting. all the men growled. it was hard to listen to
the resorting to graphic sex late in the book. it became trashy when it didn't have to
might not cut but certainly altered
reader sounds, often, like she's reading the news. she didn't enhance the story at all
