    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    "Romance novel"
    Overall

    If I had known JD Robb was a pseudonym for the romance novelist, Nora Roberts, I would never have bought this. Basic story is okay but the poorly written romance scenes that interrupt the plot every 20 minutes had me fast forwarding. Stupidly, I bought this and the next novel in the series and the second was even worse! If you want a romance novel, then this is probably an interesting series for you. If you want a mystery/police procedural get something else. Anything else.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "Excellent production but..."
    Overall

    This was one of the very best audio productions I've heard but the characters in the story were too one-dimensional for me. If you like your villains thoroughly evil this is the book for you! I also had a very hard time listening to the descriptions of animal cruelty and skipped over a couple of particularly nasty descriptions.
    Interesting novel but the characters needed to be more developed.
