No. Don't need the graphic romance scenes. Leave something to the imagination!
Really great performance. Added to the listening.
I really enjoyed the story didn't want to put my Ipod down. However, suddenly there are graphic almost visual sex scenes. The book didn't need that at all and took away from it. At that point I thought I was listening to a Harlequin romance novel. The story is really good and doesn't need that at all. Victor Slezak is a great narrator and made it a good listen. When I first started listening I was sure I would download more of her novels, but now I don't think so.
I am hooked on Sandra Brown AND Victor Slezak. This was another thriller with a surprise ending. I enjoyed the unexpected twists within the story. I suspected everyone of being untrustworthy. The characters being on the run truly kept the story moving. I am not a fan of precocious children though. I am old school and believe children should be seen and not heard. Emily cannot be that cute and verbal at age 4. I would rank this second to Envy, but I am working my way through Brown's novels. Highly recommended.
This novel was a "page turner" for me. The plot moved quickly and the main characters were people I could care about, which made it hard to stop listening. For the most part, I was able to suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride. It was a five star book until the ending, which was just too unbelievable, even though I could see it coming. But still, it was a fun listen overall.
As always the Brown - Slezak is a winning combination. Again Brown has come up with an interesting story and once again Slezak did an excellent job bringing the story to life. The story kept me interested and listening from start to finish. There are few author - narrator combinations that work as well as Sandra Brown and Victor Slezak. I thought that the story was original and compelling. And try as I did I didn't guess who the arch villain was until the arch villain was introduced at the end of the book.
A very good storyline and the characters were believable,
I did not figure out the ending too soon.
This a great book. Well done!! The plot is enthralling. I love the main characters. Passion and Chemistry btw the Honor and Colben is perfect. Ms. Brown did a great job balancing the romantic aspects with the mystery plot.
Victor Slezak is at his very best.
I listened in one sitting, up tiill 5 am!
Hope for more to come from Sandra Brown. Her latest books have been excellent.
I was slow getting hooked on this book. The narration was partly responsible. Starting out with a focus on female characters with a male narration is disconcerting. But I hung in there. The supporting characters did not add that much to the tale, but they weren't totally bad. And about a third of the way through the book, a major TWIST is revealed. Bam!! I was hooked.
There were some inconsistencies that surprised me from an author that this wasn't their first book. Example, as Coburn is trying to contact his superior, he can't get through as they apparently have not set up a code name or verification process of any kind. However, Honor has just this sort of code with her best friend. And later, Coburn and Honor set up such a system with that friend. Why did he know to do it then but not for his safety and protection of his life and livelihood? Another example is that Honor is convinced to stay active in the struggle because of her lack of action in her own life since her husband died. And it is just that type of inactivity that her father-in-law later acknowledges his role in as they are "making up." Wasn't that convenient?
The narration wasn't the best I have heard, but far from the worse. He didn't do well with female voices but I got over that quickly. He differentiates between characters excellent, without resorting to ethnic or regional accents (something I hate).
The love angle wasn't too strong but weaved in well. I do not need graphic descriptions as this story had, but I understand others do. Fine.
So I will try another of her books at some point. This choice was definitely enjoyable and worthwhile -- a good pick.
I'm a bored Alabamian looking for a way to escape!
I've listen to Game of Thrones, a few Nora Roberts, Jack Reacher, and John Rain. No one can match Roy Dotrice in Game of Thrones. He simply did too many voices. But I'd say this performance was very good.
No, Lethal hasn't turned me off other books. I pre-ordered two of Ms. Brown's upcoming tales.
I liked the voice and cadence of the father in law.
No, I wouldn't want to listen to all of this book in one sitting because it's too long. But I will say I finished the final chapters from 2:45 a.m. - 5:15 a.m. March 4, 2014, which may explain some of my comments, maybe.
The audio performance was good. It was enjoyable. That wasn't the problem. This is the second Sandra Brown book I'd read. I liked Envy, so I searched for another highly rated book and bought it - audiobook as well.
Let me say that if I hadn't read the ending, I would've given the book five stars. The story was full of action, excitement, near misses, a little romance, and a few chuckles. But the ending felt oddly rushed and really made no sense whatsoever. Once the "bad guy" was revealed, I was left scratching my head. It didn't make sense. Then I got angry.
I just finished this book; and I want to hate it for wasting my time with such a bogus ending. However, upon further reflection, I realized 95% was thoroughly enjoyable. Instead, I think I'll create my own ending.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I did re listen as victor Slezak makes the hero, just so Lethal
If you are a SB fan, then you know she always has a twist in the story. This is one of the
better ones. Smoke Screen and White Hot are at the top. Audible only has short version of
white hot,which is a shame. We really miss out.
many but coburn grabbing the kid and her bankie or when he indulges his sweet tooth were good for me. SB always makes her few sex scenes hot hot. Sandra can really paint her heros as strong as they can get. Her adjectives are just so strong and make the hero, just yummy and of course Lethal.
I have all his performances...he has such great a reading voice...I melt as he reads the hunkie male characters.
yup, both times
fans of SB listen to this one twice to catch the clues
I just graduated Nursing school and now have time to read more. Any recommendations would be great.
Amazing, Awesome, Fantastic
Honor - She loved her daughter and would do anything to protect her
Great book. I couldn't stop listening.
