This is the second in Susan Elizabeth Phillips' ficticious Chicago Stars NFL team series and it is far and away the funniest of the 6 that I have read! It is sexy and funny!
It was a a roller coaster ride!
he has so much realism!!
made me sit up and take notice - I was concerned about the ending
This was a fun ride!!
This is a smart thriller but it takes a while through the first book to see it. I always wonder who puts up the reviews of "1st" books to a series that say this same thing but this is an intelligent book with a great ending that isn't visible until the last 5 chapters. I like that!! I have high hopes for the next dozen books or so! Keep in mind this book was written before cell phones were ubiquitous (1987 I think)! But aside from cell phone technology it is very current and exciting!
The bounce between whether or not the protagonist and the heroine will get together is fun!!!
She is a great audio performer - there are few better (Amanda Ronconi and Lorelei King are the only two that are as good or slightly better!)
Yes, however, I work for a living so it took me almost 3 days. That means I listened every minute I wasn't working (60 hours a week as an Architect), torturing middle-school children (mother of 3, ugh), doing laundry (my penance for not being a billionaire) or cleaning everything (part of being human - even though I have a weekly housekeeper)!!!
It was very slow at first but after the first few hours it was totally worth it.
It is one of the more light-hearted para-normal books and while it is never laugh-out-loud funny, it is totally amusing.
Amanda does a full range of voices never leaving you wondering which character is supposed to be talking! Very articulate.
The writer is obviously talented and the premise is good. The shame of it is that the writer was on the right track to make it amusing and have it be a little serious and a lot funny, similar to Janet Evanovich's Plum series; but then, it gets too whiney, weepy, and serious. I might try the second one just to see if Ms. Sparks editor did her job this time but I won't hold my breath...
It is a litlle like a cookie cutter novel but it is fun to listen to and the reader is decent. Don't be discouraged by the beginning, it is a good time.
I HIGHLY recommend you read the first 6 books in this series; then read the synopsis of this book and stop there. DON'T READ THIS BOOK!
The Drake sisters series is some of Ms. Feehan's best work but this book was HORRIBLE! It was seemingly endless physical and mental abuse of the youngest Drake sister. It was very depressing and not a happy ending but just a satisfactory ending. It is a total BUMMER!
I love absolutely everything I have ever read by Linda Howard EXCEPT THIS BOOK!! The writing was ok but the narrator was so annoying I wanted to shoot the main character by the end of the first half. This book moved slowly but the narration made it AWFUL!!! Try any one of Ms. Howard's OTHER books.
I enjoyed this quite a bit, however, I felt like it may have gone on for too long. Almost no sex in this book but the characters were enthralling.
It took a long time to get there but I enjoyed the ending. If you are looking for an interesting and lengthy story this is a good tale!
I implore you to listen to the other reviewers who tell of repetition. DON'T WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME with this overly drawn out, painfully repetitious, rambling tale. It is a good story (that was what made me give it a chance) but it wasn't worth it. Too bad JoAnn Ross or another skilled author didn't write this plot or perhaps an editor could have done his/her job and cut it down to an appropriate 7 hours!!
