    Natalie Jones is the lucky survivor of an elusive killer who preys on young women and then disappears from view. And since her harrowing ordeal, the once gutsy photojournalist has remained isolated in her home, paralyzed by fear and her failing vision. Special Agent Liam "Mac" McKenzie has scars of his own. But despite his efforts to ignore the attraction that simmers between him and Natalie, he needs her help to catch a predator. Soon, they will forge a tentative alliance - charged with desire.

    Story
    Where does Shades of Desire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story was greaat, for one thing, the author was very, very good at potraying a newly blind person who wasn't born that way. I know this because I am legally blind myself and know a lot of blind people. The story was good, and didn't have the heroine magically able to defend herself thank god. Also, the author delved into the issues of blindness and relationships to a great degee. The mystery wasn't much of a who-dunnit, it was more of a how-did-it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Mac, because he was willing to open up and accept someone with a disability, and he was a good cop, though he could lay on the jerk rather thickly.

    I liked Natalie too, even her rudeness is quite normal, at least from what I've seen, so to some she might seem very unpleasant, but few people are when they are coming to terms with blindness.


    What aspect of Ashley Adlon’s performance would you have changed?

    I'd have liked a bit more differentiation between the voices of characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I was frankly stunned at how well the author did handling the blindness in this book. I thought the story was believable and not over the top. I know there is to be a sequel to this book, but I wish the main characters would stay the same.
