    Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

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

    Story was die hard Sci Fi Fantasy lovers only! So hard to keep listening with the multi-faceted story line and somewhat monotone narrator. I like to get lost in a book and not have to analyze and think extra hard. Therefore if you enjoy a challenge and like to think intricately then this book is for you.


    Has Pathfinder turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. More so from the author than the type. I like more simplistic sci-fi fantasy books where I don't have to think so hard.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Yes with different author.


    Any additional comments?

    One positive attribute about this book is the language. Often I find authors put in swear words when really unnecessary. This book had no foul language and I found that refreshing.

    Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ask for It to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition is better than the print version because of the narrator's accent and performance. The English accent helps to propel you back into time and gain a fuller experience of the book.


    What other book might you compare Ask for It to and why?

    Ask for it is a unique hybrid between Pride and Prejudice and 50 Shades of Grey. It takes all that we love about Pride and Prejudice and 50 shades of grey and intertwines them into a romantic mystery. It effectively combines Mr. Darcy and Christian Grey into Marcus and Elizabeth Bennett and Anastasia Steele into Lady Hawthorne, also Elizabeth. Ask for It takes the leap we all wished for in Pride and Prejudice which makes it that much more stunning.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Justine Eyre brings to the book her accent which you would not be able to experience in just reading the book. It takes you back in time so you can actually feel the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book had several great moments and was the ultimate search for oneself and the love that once was.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I like Sci Fi to an extent but this was not for me. Those that like sci fi thriller type might enjoy it. It just kept dragging on and I finally stopped listening


    Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Clines again?

    Possibly depending on the reviews


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when they opened the door to a specific apartment and the events that transpired afterwards. (I don't want to spoil it for those who have yet to read it)


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 14?

    Several. It went to slow for me even at 1.5 speed.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was one of the best I have ever heard. His ability to utilize different voices was exceptional and really gave each character their own voice. The narrator is what kept me listening for as long as I did.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Beth - typically I have a difficult time with men performing female voices. It is much easier for me to accept females performing male voices. In this case Jim did an exceptional job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Great book but exceptionally descriptive in the romance side therefore could potentially not be for everyone. Definatley adult content only. I would not want my teenage daughter reading this which in turn makes it good for me!
