    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I loved almost everything about this Audiobook. The story was very well written. And in my opinion the performance was absolutely on point!


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Yes, I like the way that Nora writs. I like how she knows her characters. She gives them each characteristics and stays true to them. Yes they evolve but not in a way that is totally unreasonable.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The narrator did a wonderful job!


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I love the way this story was developed. Beginning, middle to end, it was wonderful and very interesting.

    Cash was living the life of the lieutenant of The Last Riders, and he had women at his beck and call. The only thing he saw himself settling down with in the future was a 12 pack... and certainly not Rachel Porter. Hell, she wasn't even his type - her tits were too small, and her mean mouth could shrivel a man's dick. How was he supposed to know she was special and worth putting up with those weed-producing hillbillies? Or was she?

    Story

    Picking a narrator is extremely important, especially when I come to a series. At this point in the series you've given your characters voice and a pitch. When you change that voice and pitch and it gives your story a completely different feel. I really hope authers and publishing houses realize that soon and STOP DOING THIS. Changing a narrator in the middle of a series is NOT a good idea...

    Story was good. I personally am not a fan of the acult so the power that Rachel had was unessisary in my opinion. Besides that and the narrator the story was well thought out. Character had depth and we got to get an update on the rest of the Last Riders.

    I would keep this book if not for the fact that the narrator was changed. NOT COOL...

    Nora does it again! She created a beautiful story with great characters. This story has heart, suspense and a very nice love story. Also, the cutest little 3 year old!!! The Narrator did an amazing job! So glad, because a bad narrator can ruin any story no matter how good it is.

    Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

    All Casey wants is to avoid being arrested on trumped-up charges from her persistent ex-boyfriend. Running through the woods to escape two deputies sounds like a great plan until they catch her. Thinking it’s all over, waiting to hear the snap of the handcuffs, she instead hears a roar. A huge, tall, muscular man comes to her rescue. She’s being saved by Bigfoot - and he’s the sexiest thing she’s ever seen. The attraction between them is instant, and after spending a little time with him, Casey wants to take him home and keep him.

    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

    This was a very nice second book to this series. I really enjoyed the story. The narration was slightly better on the first book but this performance was ok. My download had a defect in the beginning… and I will try to download it again but if I get the same issue I will return it due to the skipping track. Also, there was a ghost element that was just unnecessary in my opinion. Other than that, would I recommend this book? Yes.

    Story

    Why would they change the narrator?!... This was a great story. I was so excited about hearing PJ's story :-/ but this narrator was NOT good for this variety of characters. What kind of accent was that for Rio?... Definitely NOT a Brazilian accent. The narrator was not successful or this book... I felt like I was listening to the men in the cast of Duck Dynasty half of the time. I've heard him on other books and I do enjoy his voice. Just NOT for this book...

    *Note to anthers, publishing houses and the universe at large: DO NOT CHANGE NARRATOR IN THE MIDDLE OF A SERIES. It makes this series less appealing now.

    I really enjoyed this book! I bought it because I have the second one in the series but I really didn't know what to expect. All I knew is that I didn't want to get ahead of the story so I got it and this was a pleasant surprise. I really enjoyed the mystery and the romance in this book. The way that it brings the love interests together is very nice.
