    Ex-Marine Nate "Ghost" Weller is an expert at keeping his cool - and his distance - which makes him one hell of a sniper. It's also how he keeps his feelings for Ali Morgan in check. Sweet, sexy Ali has always revved his engine, but she's his best friend's baby sister ... and totally off limits. Ali's never seen anything sexier than Nate Weller straddling his custom Harley - or the flash of danger in his eyes when she tells him she's in trouble. First, something happened to her brother, and now she's become the target of a nasty organization.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book itself to someone, but absolutely not the audible version. It was absolutely miserable. I ended up reading the book instead of listening to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book had action, adventure, suspense, romance and humor. It was intense!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's idea of identifying the voices of the different characters was to do a high pitched, childlike squeaky, baby voice for the heroine and a growling, grunting whisper for the hero. It was so horribly uncomfortable to listen to that I ended up reading the book and never getting even 1/4 of the way through the audio book. The narrator's voice was pleasant and enjoyable when she was reading actual text. It was her attempts to distinguish the speaking parts with different voice patterns that detracted from the book. I thought that perhaps I was being unreasonable, since this was my first audio book purchase. So, I brought the audio in and played it for several friends. All reactions were the same...horribly uncomfortable to listen to. A childlike baby voice for the heroine??? And a serial killer's grunty whisper for the hero??? This book should be re-recorded or removed from audio publication completely. If there was a way to give it less than 1 star, I would.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If this narrator is used for future books, please advise her that her speaking voice is pleasant enough to carry the book without trying to do voices specific to the characters.
