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.
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!
This was a good story and kept me engaged and helped the time go by while driving long distance. I did not think the storyline was predictable and found some do the twists and turns exciting. The narrator was easy to understand but sometimes distracted me from the story with mid-pronunciation and inappropriate accent/tone/inflection for the characters (especially the main characters Kendall, Matt and John). Th only part of the story I did not enjoy was the unnecessary details in the sex scenes. Overall good book that I am glad I read.
The actual story was quite interesting... I was always curious what would happen next and it was fast from the start. I appreciated the writing of the author, her vocabulary was more advanced without being pretentious. However, I really disliked the narrator. She was unable to do a variety of voices - accent and male vs female. It was hard to distinguish between characters. Word were mispronounced and misused. It really took away from the experience. Luckily the book was good enough to still listen.
Non-fiction, fiction--I read widely. Except bodice rippers. I'd rather pull my own eyelashes out than read romance. Avid, happy reader.
if you like smarmy romance novels, where the heroine spends an inordinate amount of time thinking about how hot the male protagonist is, this is for you.
Yes! Very annoying betrayal of the male characters and made Kendall's voice sound like a needy female - which she is far from being.
I liked the plot but the details were too gruesome for me. It was also a fairly slow start.
The story could have been better. It sounded like the author was in a crunch to finish a book. The performance was really bad. The performer had a pleasant voice but not for different characters.
