I'VE READ SOME OF THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ON MR. PAUL'S PERFORMANCE AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT. YES, CHANGE IS HARD FOR SOME PEOPLE. I, HOWEVER, FOUND MR. PAUL'S PERFORMANCE TO BE DIFFERENT BUT MOST ENJOYABLE. I HAD NO PROBLEM DISTINGUISHING WHO WAS TALKING BECAUSE MR. PAUL WAS ABLE TO VARY HIS VOICE AND ACCENTS. I DID NOT FIND HIS FEMALE VOICE TO BE IRRITATING AS SOME MALE AUDIO PERFORMANCES CAN BE. MR. PAUL WAS ABLE TO CONVEY THE SUSPENSE IN THE STORY AND ALSO THE TENDER MOMENTS. I HAVE ENJOYED MS. BANKS OTHER KGI BOOKS WITH HARRY BERKELEY AS NARRATOR. I AM EQUALLY PLEASE WITH MR. PAUL. WHO EVER READS MS. BANKS'S NEXT CHAPTER IN THE KGI SAGA, I WILL BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO PURCHASE IT!
I've loved P.J. from The Darkest Hour, the first book in the KGI series. The story starts out with one night of smokin' hot sex. This heroine is strong, takes no prisoners and takes no crap for anyone or that is what she projects to the rest of the world. Cole isn't exactly your average hero either. He struggles with wanting to coddle and protect her but also leaving her enough space so not to injure P.J's pride. I do wish the book was a bit longer, I would've liked to have seen more of Cole, P.J. as well as the rest of the characters from the other books in the series. As much as I liked the ending I couldn't help but think that it was missing something. Yes, the bad guys are gone and KGI triumphed in the end but things will never be the same for P.J. or the men that tried so hard to save her but couldn't. Maybe Maya will gift us with a novella somewhere down the line that will tell us how P.J. is dealing with things.
I cried more during this book then any other in recent memory. The angst factor is really high in this book. After I was done I went right over and picked up a fluff read, His Teddy Bear by Eve Langlais. I needed that read after the emotional roller coaster of Shades of Gray.
I wasn't crazy about the narrator. He wasn't bad but not really good either maybe I just got spoiled by Fred Berman. He does such a good female voice. Once I got used to Adam Paul he was ok.
Yes, it's on my keeper shelf along with the rest of the KGI series. The characters are deep and engaging, strong and likeable.
The way PJ responded to the trauma she experienced. In typical PJ fashion she kicked major A$$! She didn't break, she did what most women wish they could do and got more than even. I'm a great PJ fan!
He isn't Harry Berkeley, and at first I was put off by that. Harry even makes the women sound believable. Not so much Adam. But he didn't ruin the book, he did very well, though not as masculine sounding as Harry.
Oh yeah! I cried at the pain caused by the criminals to everyone who came into contact with them and laughed at the byplay between PJ and Cole and the rest of the Kelly clan.
Yes, listen to this book, but listen to them in order so you can get the whole story, then fall in love with these tough tender guys and strong loving women just like I did! Start with Ethan and Rachel's' story-The Darkest Hour- and continue until you reach the end, then start again!
I love Maya Banks and this series so I am a fan. It was good.
When PJs nurse friend said friends bail you out of jail and good friends are sitting there next to you in jail. The exchange with her and Cole I enjoyed.
After listening to Harry on all the other books, the new narrator took some getting used too. I don't think I ever got used to it. Most of the voices were alright but Steele sounded like Larry from the Bob Newhart Show and I found it comical.

After 2 minutes of listening, I remembered instantly the reviews I had read about the narration. Which I forgot because I read reviews for so many books and had this in my wish list.
The narration would have been ok (just "ok") if not a series with preceding books. The stiffness in the beginning is more like listening to someone read, but it lightens up. However, when the hero's voice is pitched higher than the heroine, and Rio no longer has a south American accent, one has to work Very Hard to concentrate on the words of the story and more on one's imagination instead of the audio than usual when listening to an audiobook. This is one of a handful of audiobooks among approximately 140 I've listened to where the narration is actually an obstruction to the story.
The story begins hot, jumps immediately into mission mode and covers some very hard material.
I think rerecording this book would be a good idea.
I like PJ and Cole in all the other books so I was looking forward of their own book. I enjoy the story by Maya Banks as always.
Harry Berkeley or someone who can do a souther accent with out sounding like Kermit the frog
Story is still extremely good but rather read then listen to this narrator.
Go Back to Harry!
We take a break from the Kelly brothers in this one. It was nice that the focus was on two members of a KGI team this time. At first I didn't like the new narrator or rather was shocked by the change. But Paul grew on me after a while; I liked Cole's southern accent. PJ is strong; Cole is sexy. Banks is able to voice opinions on the sex trade without sounding too preachy. PJ is just as tough as any of the Kelly brothers or KGI team members, which I love. Lots of action. Banks takes it up a notch. Very enjoyable listen.
