I listen to a lot of audio books...probably too many and this is the first time I have made a comment about a book. The story is okay, would make more sense if I would start with the Guy Next Door (1st book in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor Series).
However, the real problem I have with this audio book is the narrator is the same from the popular series from J.R. Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood). I can not tell one book from the other as they sound exactly alike! These charactars could be vampires and I would never know the difference because the narrator reads is EXACTLY the same. Also, there is this annoying clicking sound when he talks. Is this an audio problem or is his jaw popping?
I usually like Lori Foster books. Unfortunately I didn't like this one very much. It sounded like an interesting scenario, but the hero is too cocky (literally) and the heroine is TSTL (too stupid to live) for the first quarter of the book. I never did figure out where the story takes place; somewhere south of Ohio, possibly in Kentucky, is all I got from something very late in the book. I did finish it, but I'm not sure how much I missed because of the awful narrator. He was very hard to get used to and actually hear the story.
I was just happy the the mess was finally over. At least it had a happy ending.
Only if I really, really, needed to hear the story. I really, really disliked the narrator. Quick sentences, then a quiet space, then more quick sentences in a soft voice, like he was narrating golf and trying to make it exciting. Very hard to get used to and actually hear the story. He needs to narrate a
Yeah, wish I could actually read it on Kindle or in a real book, but with my vision that's not happening.
Audible should indicate that this is part of a series.
I loved the main character Jackson. It was the first time that I related more to the male character. Don't get me wrong, there were things I liked about Jackson's love interest- though at times I wanted to speak openly of her love for him- but it was Jackson that intrigued me the most. I loved the story line: the idea of three men forming an operation to break up human traffickers doesn't sound exciting but I was mesmerized by their strength and their purpose. I also really loved the reader, particularly how he read Jackson; he great with the voices in fact.
The beginning, the books unfolds in an interesting way, the introduction of Arizona and, of course, the culmination of the drama toward the end.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. He was able to read all the characters so well. I already mentioned my love of his "Jackson" voice but he also did a great job with the females. I dislike when male readers change there pitch of female readers. Frangione differentiated the characters by timbre and accent. I want to hear more from this reader.
A sexy action-packed love story that will have you savoring every minute
I bought this on the recommendation of another listener. Thank you!
Did not get past the X Rated sexual dialogue with no character or story development in the first few paragraphs.
I read so I can write
This is not a romance. It is a weak story vehicle for downright erotica. The narrator, one of the best, is even a disappointment and it might be because he was struggling to get through it as hard as anyone with good taste would.
I will not be buying another book by this author and will seek a refund on this one.
The story was weak and the summary of the books accolades were misleading. Although I've listened to stories by this narrator, I found this story was told with a mundane, uninteresting performance, which, in fairness to the narrator, may have been due to the story itself. The fact that it received such a high rating is a mystery. The story lacked form and flow with a vague uninteresting plot. The fact that I am returning this book says it all. Don't waste your money on this one.
There could have been a story line and plot .
Couldn't wait for the romance and intrique to begin. It did not.
