    Savannah von Hopf has no choice. To save her uncle's life, she goes in search of Ken "WildCard" Karmody, a guy she barely knew in college who is now a military operative. She must convince him to help her deliver a cache of ransom money into the hands of terrorists halfway around the world. What she doesn't expect is to end up in WildCard's arms before she can even ask for his help.

    What would have made Out of Control better?

    I wanted to like this book but I really couldn't get behind the narration. Norma Lana was just unexciting and flat as a narrator, and the accents were so bad they were distracting. I kept trying to listen to this book but I would keep getting bored and turning it off within a few minutes. I can't really say whether the writing wasn't keeping me interested or the narration was just so bad that it turned me away from the book, but either way, I don't recommend spending the credits on this book.

  • Untamed: MacKinnon's Rangers, Book 2

    Though forced to fight for the hated British, Morgan MacKinnon would no more betray the men he leads than slit his own throat - not even when he was captured by the French and threatened with an agonizing death by fire at the hands of their Abenaki allies. Only the look of innocent longing in the eyes of a convent-bred French lass could make him question his vow to escape and return to the Rangers. And soon the sweet passion he awoke in Amalie had him cursing the war that forced him to choose between upholding his honor and pledging himself to the woman he loves.

    Would you listen to Untamed again? Why?

    I already own the Kindle version of Untamed but when I saw that it had been released as an audiobook and read by Kaleo Griffith, I had to buy it again. If you like romantic suspense, this is an excellent, excellent read. I am a huge (pretty much exclusive) fan of romantic suspense and have read an enormous amount of books in this genre (too much romance is boring for me, but suspense only doesn't really pull me in) and I have to say, Pamela Clare is by far the best I've found so far.


    What about Kaleo Griffith’s performance did you like?

    Kaleo Griffith is a truly talented performer. As a fluent French speaker with Scottish relatives, I was interested to see how he handled both the Scottish and French accents in this book, since poor accents really ruin the book for me. I must say, he blew me away. While it's true that many of the words were said incorrectly, his accents were so good that half the time I didn't even notice until much later, if at all. I was able to tell who was talking by the tone and accent he was using, instead of having to wait to be told. Excellent job.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As any longtime lover of audiobooks will tell you, a bad narrator can ruin a good book, and a great narrator can make any book seem fantastic. Happy to report, Mr. Griffith is one of the best I've ever encountered. (And I have listened to a LOT of audiobooks in my day.)

    I must admit, I was surprised at first when he reads the women's lines in a female voice. (The falsetto made me giggle a little, especially when he does southern accents) but I got used to it in, oh, approximately five minutes, and after that, found myself wondering why all romance audiobooks don't have a male reader! It really adds something to the story.

    I highly recommend this book and the narrator. Here's hoping the next one comes out soon.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If what you want is romantic suspense, you'll love this book. I love reading a love story with an interesting backdrop (I like romance novels but I can't take it if nothing else is going on in the world other than the two people falling in love.)
    However, be warned, there are strong elements of romance and suspense. If you're looking for romance only, or suspense only, you will be disappointed.
