This book was very good at times, but for some reason the narration was not the best at times, but a lot of it was good, and then some of the story was just Blah. Being that it is the beginning of a series, I willl give the next book a try, the story was ok, It is worth listeniing to, you just have to get past the not so good parts, luckily there are more good than bad. I know my review is a little confusing but you will understand after listening to this book.
I thought I was onto something with my initial listen to the excerpt - very disappointed in the shallowness of both main characters and the story line really petered out toward the end - no threads were dangling throughout the material that would have lead the leading lady to her conclusions - she was too busy shagging the leading guy. No worries there - great sex scenes are awesome but the repetitiousness of these and frequency began to drag down my libido rather than spicing it up! Overall a bit of a drag which is too bad cause the actual concept could have gone places and left me panting for the next in the series.
I did not have any interest in the story. I kept thinking to my self how could the main character be so dumb and why the heck would he play the Hannibal when he could get himself out at anytime. I stopped listening to the book in the 3rd chapter.
uh no probably not.
I think the book distracted from the book....
I would have gone back and found a better story plot.
I like a trashy novel as well as anyone. But this one was boring. The characters were boring, the story line boring, even the sex scenes were boring. What can I say, besides skip this one, it was boring.
This is the first time I've ever not finished an audible book. I thought I was getting a sci-fi thriller, what I got was a trashy sex novel. I tried fast forwarding through the overly long, repetitive sex scenes, but finally gave up on the whole book. I'm really disappointed, and feel like a threw away a credit. Don't waste your credits or time!
I downloaded this book because the premise sounded so great. I was a bit puzzled to see it listed as a romance novel and that should have been enough to make me think again. However, I liked the idea of the story so much that I went ahead with it. The story is good. The premise is great. The writing is good too with lots of great plot potential. However, all of this is overwhelmed by tempestuous, 'bodice buster' scenes. When it got to the stage that every scene was being infiltrated by the endless yearning of the two central characters, I gave up.
The narrator Tom Stechschulte makes all the lead male characters in the Ghostwalker series so sexy and appealing I just cant get over it. These books are good but Stechschulte makes them great! I have listened to all in this series, and wish Tom would read more romance type books. He is great.

I???m not really into Paranormal Romance; but I read this book because it was recommended by one of my goodreads friends; we have a book recommendation exchange program going and I thought I would be objective about this book even if I wasn???t looking forward to reading it. What I did like about this book was the Sci-Fi elements in this book; telekinetic soldier, Ryland seems to fall hard and fast for another telekinetic person; the overprotected, Lily. The psychic connections between the two seem to play a heavy role in the book; I think they were having physic sex before they actually meet in the book. Which brings me to the thing I didn???t really like about this book; the romance. While I???m ok with some romance in the book I think this book replaced any form of excitement/plot with romance and sex. Any hint of plot seemed to be overshadowed by the sex; I didn???t really enjoy the sex either; it seemed like the author was trying to censor herself too much, the lack of swearing and violence is a good example of that. I don???t think I???ll ever become a fan of the romance genre, defiantly not the paranormal romance genre but I will continue to keep an open mind when it comes to recommendations.
