I read this book years ago when it was first released and am now delighted it finally came out in unabridged audio! This story encompasses all the elements of a great read without having to rely on the trendy gimicks of most books today. The storyline, humor and just the right amount of heat makes this one of my LH favorites.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
A real page turner with several surprises I did not see coming. At first I thought that I had wasted my money as the "list" seemed very silly and juvenile to me as well as the public's reaction to it not ringing true but I kept on listening and I'm so glad I did. I was shocked by what happened as well as the brutality of it. It held my attention through the every page of the book. A good read or rather listen.
Yes. Very entertaining book with suspense and romance.
I read this book years ago and so happy to see on Audible. I love anything by Linda Howard.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
How many times have you gone out with the girls and the subject turned to men? Lets face it, that is the age old question, what is your idea of a perfect man? So the girls wrote down "their" idea of what attributes the Perfect Man should have. The trouble begins when someone discusses their list with another person in the office, and someone emails another person, and so on and so on, until it makes national news. Bewildered, befuddled the women can't believe the interest this list starts. Needless to say, someone takes it personally and the real trouble begins.
Jaine and Sam are the two protagonist in the story, the dialogue between these two is witty and at times sarcastic.
I gave this story 5 stars, for its plot, character development, and action. The ending was so twisted and one I didn't see coming until near the end. Bravo! Ms. Howard this was a good one.
This story was so good, the narrator did a credible job keeping the story flowing and interesting.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
I was totally surprised by this book. I purchased it because it was on a special, boy was I surprised. I really didn't think I would like it, but I have already listened to it more then once.
The book starts off calm and sort of cute taking you by surprise with the drama and suspense that follows. It sort of ease you right into the drama. You think it's a soft story and then boom - the drama and suspense begins. It was about the list the ladies put together as to their version of a perfect man. This unfolds and the drama begins concerning this list but not in the way you may think until you get more into the story. It is an old book, but a good one.
I loved the relationship between Sam and Jane. The friendship between the 4 friends was written well. I didn't like what happened to them, but that was the essence of the book. The only negative thing I can say is I was not thrilled with the narrator. She was just okay.
The story was exciting, kept my attention the entire time. That is not an easy thing to do with me because I get bored fast. This one had it all for me. Drama, suspense, funny, and romance. Well, I guess it was a bit interesting how Sam and Jane fell in love in all of 3 weeks, but I've heard that in real-life so I guess it can happen.
Yes, nice one to spend a few hours with.
Mr Perfect obviously! :-) Wish I had his patience
Laughed quite a few times
Good example of how a relationship can benifit from at least one party staying calm
I have audioread some five Linda Howard books now and I have liked them ALL!
Without including any spoilers, this book has a BIG twist that just floors you. It is very compelling from start to finish. The group of friends and how they relate to each other is a big part of the book. I appreciated the relationship they had and their loyalty to each other.
All in all, great book that had me raising my eyebrows while listening at work.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
It started off as a really funny lighthearted story which was expertly switched into a dark murder mystery romance (with a twist or two along the way) by the skilled writings of Ms Howard.
Worth a credit? If you're looking for a good romance thriller then, for the price, just buy it with $ coz it's cheap enough.
AWESOME writer! GREAT story! A real good azz story that is well written. I can't say how much I truly enjoyed this book! The previous reviews really pushed me to get this title so I hope this review gets loads of others to take a LISTEN!
Say something about yourself!
I read this book a number of years ago and laughed my head off. It was available on tape but not CD and I've continued to watch for the CD or download and now its here. Once again I laughed out load. I found the narrator took a while to get used to but that was the only down side. Some of the references in the book are dated as you would expect from a re-issue but I still loved it!
The antics and smart mouth of the main character.
