If you like the gorgeous,super tough guy falling hard for the beautiful, smart, sexy woman; with a little plot and danger to space out the sex; then you'll love this one. The tough guy with a well hidden devotion for the very few people he loves, and the girl who can deal with any situation (except resisting him) play the yoyo game between mindless need and rebelling against themselves and each other. Lori always delivers good foreplay and some interesting twists to keep you going.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
The storyline was interesting and kept my attention, I loved Pris's strength and loyalty to her mom. There was some humor in this book along with some suspense. I still love Jackson's story the best and wish I would have listened to them in order....
The series is pretty much the same...big handsome hunks fighting the bad guys and find their beautiful loves along the way...
Although I do like the narrator, I picture these guys a lot sexier than his voice portrays.....
Fighting the bad guys and finding love along the way......
Try and read them in order....this book should have been listened to before Jackson's story.
This was the second book I listened to in the series. I'm not sure what order they are supposed to be in but I think I made a good choice. This book was a great follow-up to the first (If You Dare) and it was good to hear more about the characters I came to know in the first book. I am going to follow this one up with the story that follows the love between Alani & Jackson in Savor the Danger.
The story went on and on without much character, excitement, story plot or relief of any kind. I told myself to be patient and wait for it. I am familiar with this author and some of her other books and have truely enjoyed some of her writing. The Hero was not handsome and witty, but ripped and moodily quiet. Boring. The Heroine had to be raised on vanilla because that is what her character emoted. I hung in there and wished I hadn't Avoid this one unless you want a sleeping aide..
I first thought this book must have been written 20-30 years ago when women wanted to read about big hulking male heroes who tell them what to do, showing there immense protective/arrogant/dominant side.
The story was just over the top absurd with stereotyped bad guys galore. The heroine was such an odd contradiction that she was not believable. I appreciate the fact that the author took on a rough topic but finding it hard swallow at the same time.
Jim Frangione is an amazing narrator (narrator for the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series any of you who are familiar). Finally, Lori Foster has an audio book with a good narrator. The story is one of three in a series. I would recommend downloading all three. Romantic and typically in 'Lori Foster' style.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I must have missed something in the book because I thought the book was so boring.
It's never good when you get to the end of a book and think "Thank God that's over!" It took me a long time to slog through it. I have enjoyed Ms. Foster's contemporaries but I personally do not at all like her attempts at romantic suspense.
This was a revenge story. The heroine was out for revenge on the bad guy for something that did not really need revenge. She was going to kill the man who had kidnapped, raped and shared her mother. I realize that's a bad thing but...Her mother had kept her off the grid her whole life to keep her away from the bad man. (A man who didn't remember or care anything about the woman or what happened to her.) So the first thing you do after that upbringing is go straight to the bad guy to kill him? "I had a sucky upbringing so I'm going to go kill some man who may or may not be my father?" Is it that easy for a normal person to decide to go and murder someone? Didn't buy it at all. Maybe if the mother had pounded into the daughter that "it is your destiny to revenge me!" But the mother had been trying to protect her for the whole of her life. I wonder why the mother even admitted who the bad guy was in that case. She had no training and only a lame ass plan involving some strange cartoon weapons.
The hero was some sort of mercenary who was undercover to bring down the bad guy's white slavery operation. His sister had been kidnapped in an earlier book so at least he had a valid reason to be working against this. And he had training. But... he was the most trusted henchman of the bad guy after being there 3 weeks? Yeah...nope.
The whole thing took place in about 3 days and the heroine managed to be too stupid to live throughout most of it. And the hero just kept admiring her gumption every time she did exactly the opposite of what he asked her to do to keep her safe.
The characterisation was weak. The only part I really enjoyed was when one of the other good guy operatives had to rescue the heroine while she was naked in the shower
The only good part of the book was the narrator Jim Frangione he was great with the delivery of the story.
I read so I can write
I spent 4 hours trying to find a story with no luck. What I found was a guy who is no more than a sexual deviate An this guy is supposed to be the hero.
Priscilla and Trace and their funny bantor.
His story telling ability and his wonderful manly voice. So many times they have a woman narrating a man's voice and it just creeps me out.
Best one yet...laughed through the entire book at Priscilla.
