    Navy SEAL Clint "Iceman" McIntire didn't earn his nickname by being a coward. Or a quitter. Having crushed an infamous drug cartel in Colombia, Clint was nothing short of an American hero. Now he's home, on a much needed leave, but instead of some R&R, he finds himself neck deep in trouble with his best friend's little sister, Morganna Chavez, the only woman who has the power to bring him to his knees.… Morganna has been secretly working with the DEA to uncover a thriving date-rape drug, which leads her to a shadowy faction that is more deadly than anything her team has ever encountered.

    Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Clarissa Knightly?

    The narrator is good but there isn't much to the book other than sex. There is a plot but very simple and really just a pretext for more sex (not always the most tasteful).


    Has Dangerous Games turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I like this genre so this book doesn't turn me off from it but I will not be reading the rest of this series.


    Did Clarissa Knightly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    To the extent the book allows it, yes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dangerous Games?

    I don't think cutting out anything in particular would make much difference. It's just not a very exciting book.


    Any additional comments?

    Trying my luck with other authors...

    He was the sexiest guy she'd ever met. And that was about all Jess Baxter knew about her newest tenant. Rob Carpenter was a master at dodging questions...and igniting her desires. With just one of his searing kisses, Jess was hotter than the Florida sun. Then the murders started - all women who looked like her. And the profile of the killer matched Rob... Was he an innocent victim - or had his burning kisses only been a smoke screen? One thing was certain: Rob Carpenter was no ordinary man.

    What would have made No Ordinary Man better?

    Hard to tell.... probably nothing. It's just not a good book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will try the same author as she had written some fantastic books, but this is unfortunately not one of them.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Betsy Bronson’s performances?

    Not really...


    What character would you cut from No Ordinary Man?

    Both lead characters, actually. There is just nothing interesting about either of them.


    Any additional comments?

    Flat and boring. Also, fuels a dangerous myth that dysfunctional men from violent homes make great romantic partners.
