    Recipient of the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, Linda Lael Miller has published dozens of acclaimed novels, which regularly appear on both the New York Times and USA Today best-seller lists. This entry from her popular McKettricks series introduces Garrett, who likes fast politics, fast women, and fast cars. But when scandal sends him home, Garrett learns to appreciate Julie Remington, his former high-school nemesis.

    Overall

    This book is so boring that watching paint dry would classify as exciting. How did this author get a book published. You would have to be brain dead to enjoy this. I am not a literary snob. I love romances, which we all know are fluff, but this is ridiculous. Don't waste you money/credits.

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator has a hard act to follow. No-one can match Anna Fields. Taking that into account, and making allowances, this is still not good.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Susan Elizabeth Phillips again?

    I have all SEPs books. I have loved most of them but this was a great disappointment. The characters didn't develop. It was impossible to care about them. Lucy was just awful. What grown woman of 31 behaves that badly. Who on earth would name a grown man Panda? Ridiculous. The other characters in the book, especially Mike were one dimensional. I truly hope SEP has not lost IT.


    What didn’t you like about Shannon Cochran’s performance?

    The accents were bad, the tone was whiny. No enjoyable. Such a shame.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I hate to say this, but no.
