    Story

    I have loved every book in the James Patterson (Alex Cross) Series. I was very excited when this new book finally came out. To my disappointment it was not what I had expected. The excitment and mystery were left out of this book. I did listen to the whole book in the hopes it would get better but it just did not have the usual cant put down effect that all the other books have. Dont get me wrong, I love James Patterson and he is an amazing Author, it is just my opinion this book was the worst in the series. I also know how hard it must be to continue on with a series for so long. I am sure there is only so much you can write about. I feel this book could have been better.

    Elisabeth Anderson has seen Trevor and his friends at the infamous Manhattan BDSM club WhipperSnapper, where everyone calls them the BAD Boys, for "Billionaire Arrogant Doms." The BAD Boys--Trevor Brooks, Marc Wilde, and Roman Chase - are aptly named; they've made money hand over fist due to their aggressive investing at the Brooks Wilde Chase Fund. These guys are so rich they can get away with anything, or so the rumors go.

    Story

    I purchased this audio book because of all the positive reviews and I even read 1 review bashing someone for their review about the narrator being bad, I wish I would have listened to the negative reviews on this one. I cannot say how the story is because I was unable to Listen because the Narrator was so awful. As one reviewer said that anyone giving this book a negative review are jealous or something like that, I have to say that is so untrue it really is horrible narration.

    Story

    I am now listening to Wicked Beat, which just came out and am disappointed it is not in reading order. Audible finally has the series in order but that does me no good now that I have already listened to them out of order. Just had to Vent.
    Double Time is my favorite in the series, they are all great books, Would have been better if Audible had them in reading order to begin with. The Narrator is one of the best I have heard, and I have Listened to 1000's of Audio books, which says a lot. I really suck at writing reviews so I Do Not often write them but I had to say something about the reading order Audible Messed up and made me listen out of order which is very confusing.

    I am unable to give an accurate rating on the story because I could not listen to the whole thing because the narrator. I love the series and I am very unhappy several of the upcoming books are narrated by this narrator so that kills the series for me. I dont understand why books in a series do not use the same narrator like they should. But not this narrator for sure.

    Let me start by saying Xe Sands does a great job at Narrating this series. The beginning of this book gets right to the point of excitement, The way the story unfolds is perfect, I really enjoyed listening to this book, actually it is the second time listening now. I would suggest listening to the previous books of this series so you can understand what is going on.

    This book was very good at times, but for some reason the narration was not the best at times, but a lot of it was good, and then some of the story was just Blah. Being that it is the beginning of a series, I willl give the next book a try, the story was ok, It is worth listeniing to, you just have to get past the not so good parts, luckily there are more good than bad. I know my review is a little confusing but you will understand after listening to this book.

    I loved listening to this story, it came together so perfectly. So far my favorite of the series. The narrator does a great job bringing the characters to life. I couldn't stop listening. I really enjoy that this series has the same narrator for all of the books and that characters from previous books are brought back into each book.
